There were eight students in the graduating class of 1915. The school budget totaled $12,650. Today that number would just about pay for a season’s worth of volleyballs.

Of the 1916-17 budget, the lion’s share — $4,000 — was for teacher’s salaries, $1,275 for maps, apparatus, stoves, curtains and other necessaries.
