It is back to school week in Utah. What better way to emphasize this important week than to talk about Cedar Valley School. It was built in 1909 and remains the only remaining 2 room school house in Utah County. There are a few others statewide, but Cedar Fort has the last one in this county.
My son went to this school for 2 years (his 5th and 6th grades) he goes to 7th grade in Junior High school this year. Today the 7th graders go to school to learn their way around the school. They will experience the biggest transition going from Elementary School to Middle School (or Junior High) so they go in a day early. The rest of the school grades return tomorrow.
It is safe to say that a lot of the kids going to school today will have a bit of a culture shock, not just because they are going to Junior High but because they are going from a 103 year old school with 24 students in 6th grade to a middle school with over nine hundred 7th graders.
Please be extra careful out there driving around today and tomorrow. School is back in session.
I can actually remember when schools used real school bells, not too unlike this one.
