1959

Article from the The Washington Observer newspaper, Washington Co., Pa., Tues., Sept. 1, 1959, p. 19:
[Large Photo of School with Caption: "Abandoned East End School in Centerville Borough"] - [heading]: "Centerville East End School" [followed by] "Centerville East End School Closed; 50 Years in Service - Residents of Centerville Borough were surprised when school authorities announced that the East End school building, situated in the eastern extremity of the borough, near the West Brownsville line, would be abandoned for school purposes beginning at once.
          Built about half a century ago, the East End school was one of the leading schools in the borough.
         Word has been bruited around for some time hat ultimate abandonment of the building was anticipated since Centerville became a part of the Bethlehem-Center School Jointure, but abandonment of the building this year was unlooked for.
          Pupils scheduled to attend the East End school have been assigned to other schools in the jointure.
          The joint system includes Deemston Borough, East Bethlehem Township, Beallsville Borough, Marianna Borough, West Bethlehem Township and Centerville Borough.
           Total enrollment in the jointure now stands at about 3,400, including about 750 each in the senior and junior high schools, and some 1,900 elementary school pupils. 
           Included in the teaching staff for the final year at East End were Albert Seghi, principal; Mrs. Irma Martin, Mrs. Anna Watkins, Mrs. David Ropp and Miss Alma Baker."
