This photo, recently found by Max School employee Robert Boedicker, shows school children in front of the Max School in 1919. According to Robert's research, the school was originally built in 1912, with the rear addition, including the auditorium, added in 1929. The current school opened in the fall of 1961.

Original Honor Wall names sought
The Max Park Board is attempting to recreate a listing of all of the names of individuals commemorated on the original Max Honor Wall (pictured above). Over time, and with the deterioration of the original wooden monument, some names were lost. The Park Board wants to make sure that all individuals originally listed continue to be remembered and honored.
