Atlanta Grade School Friends

Mission

The mission of Atlanta Grade School Friends is to restore the historic Atlanta-Miller Grade School located on Miller Street in Atlanta, Texas. From 1936 to 1974 the school provided a safe and welcoming environment for Atlanta's children and their dedicated teachers. In addition to renovation of the building and the continued maintenance thereof, Atlanta Grade School Friends oversees the development and management of educational programs and related activities for all ages that enhance the building's usefulness.

Notes from the nonprofit

Atlanta Grade School Friends is ramping-up its work in 2022 by strengthening its infrastructure, upgrading its website, and launching an e-communication platform. These tasks also include the creation of a formal case for support document that will in turn be used to solicit donations for restoration of the historic Atlanta-Miller Grade School. Architectural drawings are being prepared. We envision the historic school as a place for community education, meetings and potentially for workforce training. If you have questions, reach out to us by email. Thank you for visiting our profile on GuideStar.

Preservation

The Atlanta-Miller Grade School was a Works Progress Administration project taking 120 days to complete. Hardy Brothers of Texarkana began construction of the one-story, six-room building of locally made brick in 1936.

As the community grew, rooms were added over the years. Between 1975 and 1980, Atlanta-Miller Grade School became the Atlanta Multi-Purpose Center and was put to good use until 1990. From 1990 to 2000, the school was used as a storehouse, receiving no maintenance. Water damage and neglect to regular maintenance threatens this school building, like many in small rural Texas towns. Many Atlanta-Miller Grade School former students and supporters have joined together to launch the first phase of alumni fundraising in cities around Texas. They also have made emergency repairs to prevent additional water infiltration and damage.
