Former students remember Etna School
ETNA - As work crews begin tearing down the former Etna School, former students and residents are reflecting on their memories of the venerable brick schoolhouse, which for decades has loomed over Ohio
The Standard reached out to current and former residents, asking them to share some of their memories.
Former student Tim Thompson spent his elementary years at the school.
"(In the sixth grade) Mr. Weaver had a class selected group do a themed bulletin every month," Thompson wrote on The Standard's Facebook page. We worked in a room just off the classroom for a 1 hour a day. It was in that room that I found out I was artistic.
"On my way home from work the other day I looked up into that room on the top floor. Windows gone and the walls doors and ceiling removed, yet you can still see the openings in the brick structure of the doors and windows to that craft room and realized I could remember that class room in vivid detail. Mr. Weaver (standing) at the wall length chalk board instructing us on cursive writing, and me learning to draw from Dave my sixth classmate who took the time to teach me how to draw. "
Thompson said he never forgot Weaver, who also served for a stint as the school's principal, and his former teacher's efforts to "foster our creative minds."
The school was built in , and it housed students in grades until , according to West Licking Historical Society's voluminous history of southwestern Licking County, "Preservation " That is the year three area high schools — in Etna Township, Harrison Township and Pataskala — merged into the new Watkins Memorial High School, now Watkins Middle School.
Etna School remained in use through as one of Southwest Licking Local Schools' school buildings. In fact, Southwest Licking added a new wing onto the school, connecting it to the old gymnasium, in
The expanded school housed grade-school-level Southwest Licking students from from through , according to "Preservation " From that point on, the new addition served as a kindergarten center, eventually morphing into a preschool. The old Etna School, meanwhile, became Southwest Licking's district office. It continued to serve as a district office until late , when Southwest Licking opened its new administrative office complex on the south side of the former school.
Lisa Kolk Sheets attended the former school from kindergarten through the fifth grade.
Several of her relatives attended the school when it was still a high school.
Sheets said her great aunt Lena once gave a graduation speech at the school. The speech "detailed the advancement of women in education and the work forcein the early s," Sheets said.
Even today, Sheets said she remembers the teachers who taught her within the former Etna School's brick walls.
"I have wonderful memories of Mrs. Dorothy Coffey in the music room in the basement — just off the entrance to the spooky tunnel," Sheets wrote on The Standard's Facebook page.
Some of Sheets' memories reflect time spent outside the classroom, on the former school's playground.
"The snake (play place equipment) on the new playground took a chunk of my front tooth, and the field where the new district office is located was home to many games of Red Rover," Sheets said.
Kathy Cox Lohrman, meanwhile, shared memories of her own on The Standard's Facebook page.
Lohrman was not supposed to attend the school, but when her school in Kirkersville was destroyed in a fire she found herself studying at the South Street schoolhouse.
She was in the fifth grade at the time, and she said she met other students by leaving notes in a shared desk. Once she and her pen pals got to the middle school and high school, they became friends all over again, Lohrman remembered.
"As a matter of fact, just had lunch with 15 girls from our class last week and (one) of the ones I shared a desk with was there!" she said.
Southwest Licking officials committed to tearing down the former school after a section of its south-facing facade collapsed in late Afterward, the district had to erect a safety fence around the bulk of the building.
Even before the collapse, the former school was showing its age. The upstairs floor was off limits. The roof was failing, and the building's interior walls and windows leaked water during rainy weather. The presence of decades-old asbestos presented another issue, one Southwest Licking needed to abate before tearing down the school.
District officials placed the cost of repairing the building at more than $1 million, so after exploring renting office space elsewhere they decided to build an adjoining office complex.
Superintendent Robert Jennell estimated it will take eight to 10 weeks for demolition crews to tear down the brick building and remove the remaining rubble.
Former Etna School students, meanwhile, need not fret about seeing their former school wiped off the face of the earth for good.
Southwest Licking collected a large number of bricks. It gave some to the school's alumni association. It is giving the rest to the Mead-Needham Museum, which works to preserve the area's history. Former students will be able to get the bricks through the museum.
In addition, the district preserved the former front entryway to the school. Officials have discussed turning the entryway into a monument, which would stand near the new administrative offices.
