One Nation, Under God

Phillips County Museum News for Wednesday, May 15, 2024

Do you remember the Sunny Hillside School? It was located 14 miles south of Dodson and began in 1910. Students walked or rode horses across the prairie to attend. Though the policy of “No Child Left Behind” was unheard of in 1910 the rural teachers saw to it that each student was taught the three “R’s”. As dry years came to Montana, many families starved out and moved away. There was no longer a need for smaller schools, and many were purchased and became home additions or granaries.

Congratulations to all the PC graduates. Our wish is that each of you are well acquainted with the three “R’s”...
