If you live in the greater Tulsa area, you know that Tulsa Public Schools is in the process of closing 14 schools due to reduced enrollment. In the 1960's, enrollment was 80,000+. Today, enrollment is 41,000+.
The 14 schools hosted open houses yesterday to allow alumni and neighbors to visit the facilities one last time. The Husband and I visited Alcott Elementary, which is located at 525 E. 46th Street North.
As we walked the halls of the school, we laughed about our elementary school antics and reminisced about teachers we had in common. I pointed out to The Husband where every one of my classrooms was located. We stood in the gym and marveled that it felt just as big as it did when we were kids.
We were both happy we attended the open house and were able to relive some childhood memories. When is the last time you visited the elementary school you attended? Was it long ago, or do your family members attend it today?
