    So the main building fromerly Circle Park Elementary Became Northside High. Where did the elementary students move. Did they share rooms with the High school?
    I attended 1st grade only at Circle Park Elementary in the science building 1945 before going to MG ELLIS and remember the NORTHSIDE HIGH banner atop the building.

      Dale, those two were low-hanging fruit: I found the North Side yearbook online, and I own the Poly yearbook. Someday I’ll get down to the library and scan some yearbooks from south and west.
