Progress on the Prairie:
The History of Warren School District #222

A History of the Warren School District #222 was completed by 4th graders at the former Warren High School in the 1999- 2000 school year . Here is the note they wrote, along with the links to their findings.

Dear America,
We are 4th grade students at Warren Elementary School near Monmouth, Illinois.  Our class, with the help of our teacher, decided to do a project about the history of our school district.  We did research by going through old newspaper articles and viewing slides of the original country schools.  We also sent questionnaires to past Warren students and teachers that had also attended the country schools.  Through our research, we found much information about the formation and beginning of the Warren School District. A special thanks goes to Dani's Delusions for creating the background for our web pages!! Also, a special thanks to Mrs. Eyler, our technology coordinator!  We wouldn't have known where to begin without your help! 

We hope that you enjoy viewing our project as much as we have enjoyed learning more about our special school!
