Meadow Lane Elementary School History
Meadow Lane School District #108 was formed July 12, 1951 when the former Prairie Star and Cherry Lane schools merged with the three districts, Grandview, Bethel and Twin Springs, which had already consolidated in 1949. After approval of a $150,000 bond issue, the contract was let Sept. 11, 1952, and construction was started a month later. Due to a short delay because of strikes in the construction industry, the building was completed in the late summer of 1953 and students started attending classes for the fall term Sept. 21, 1953. The beautiful five-room, one story building sat on a four-acre tract of ground in the virtual center of the area. Designed by architect, Donald R. Hollis, with facilities for 90 students, the school was planned to serve 50 percent more students than the district’s enrollment. Its three classrooms, multi-purpose room, office, health room and kitchen were all equipped with modern facilities designed to serve the educational needs to the students of the growing community.
