The newly completed Roosevelt School in an Eastman Studios Postcard

Susanville School Formally Opened
March 14, 1926

The new Roosevelt grammar school was formally opened here Friday night. More than three hundred persons heard the opening address given by Mrs. H. D. Burroughs, mayor of Susanville.

Mrs. Burroughs expressed the sentiment of the citizens in thanking the school trustees for their untiring efforts in getting the new sixty thousand dollar concrete school building ready for use.

A. B. Breitweiser of the Lassen Lumber and Box company gave a talk comparing past years schools with present day methods.

A program was given by the first and second-grade children and the city principal, Mrs. Wilson, gave a short talk.

After the short program the audience inspected the entire building and the remainder of the evening was spent in a community dance.
