Bunnell Elementary School: BUILDING ON THE PAST, LOOKING TOWARDS THE FUTURE By Janine Killmer A piece of history In the middle of the city of Bunnell, stands an elementary school whose vision is, “To create positive experiences and relationships that inspires a lifelong love of learning.” After Bunnell High School opened in 1923, there was a very active chapter of the Future Farmers of America. They would meet in the basement of the school and eventually raised enough money for a building of their own. This building became the Little Red School House, which is on the Bunnell Elementary campus, where the high school campus used to be. It is a representation of the original school houses and is now a museum. The agricultural history of Bunnell goes hand in hand with our Classroom to Career Flagship. 12 | F L A G L E R parent M A G A Z I N E
