Latham Students Teturned to Class January 3

Following a fire which destroyed the main part of the Latham R-V School facility, the 63 k-8 Latham students returned to classes Monday, Jan. 3, although not to their regular classrooms.

The students are attending class at the Pilot Grove Baptist Church, two miles from Latham, until the mobile classrooms are installed and readied for the school use. The administrative offices are in the Latham Christian Church.
