    History in brief.

        The Prospect Park Elementary School was located on Lincoln Avenue at 8th, next to the Methodist Church and across from the Baptist Cemetery. When a new elementary school was built on Pennsylvania Avenue between 9th and 10th Avenues in 1949, the whole school walked to the new building. We had Miss Jones, the principle, for 4th grade and got the big room with the bay window. Can't remember fifth grade, but for sixth grade we had a young and lively teacher.
        The Prospect Park High School was next door, up the hill on Washington Avenue. The gym was small and cold. School colors were blue and gold ; tho called Prospectors, the team mascot was a goat.
        The Glenolden School ...
        The Norwood School ...
        The Glen-Nor School ...
        The Interboro School District.
    was forned in 1955 by merger of Glen-Nor and Prospect Park schools The school colors became Black and Gold (we were told there were too many shades of green to assure matching uniforms) and the mascot became a Buccaneer. The old PPHS become the Jr. High and the old Glen-Nor became the Sr. High. Tinicum students also attended. For the 11th and 12th grades we had a lot of new faces who soon became friends. We now had a big gym and lunch room.
