Anyone know if there is a listing of class sizes for CCHS through the years? I saw the graduating class this year was 129.

I think "72" was the biggest ever. Damn sure was the best ever.

We were the first class to be forcibly removed from the school grounds by the police on the senior sleep-over night I think.

Nothing like waking up on the roof of your buddies cougar to see yourself eye to eye with Officer King

Not that it happened to me or anything like that....

Hey fancycat, We had an official (maybe the first, I don't recall one for the class of 1984, but I could be wrong) all night post graduation party in 1985, so that would trump your 1987 party by 2 years.

Someone just emailed me to let me know that I had flipped the number
1983 actually had 123 not 132

Seeing the subject of this thread -- "CCHS" -- reminds of something I've been curious about: What is the history behind "CCHS" becoming "CCDHS"? I mean "Custer County District High School" sounds so... bureaucratic or something. Anyone know the story behind that name change?

David: In the late '60s it was determined that we didn't need two school boards: i.e. elementary for city funded schools, and one for the high school. Plus, it was difficult to seek additional funding when necessary to repair/improve facilities and support wages for teachers on different wage scales. Hence, it was decided to combine the boards, put teachers all on the same scale and keep the funding in one manageable pot. It made it easier to negotiate with all factors involved in education. Powder River did the same with their schools earlier. Hope this helps.

Kacey: You can get all the figures from the County Supt. of Schools office in the courthouse. For all of the schools in the county too.

Thanks, Bill. I guess I'm still not clear on why that change required adding "District" to the name of the high school. Is Powder River County's high school known as "Powder River County District High School"?

Yes to your question re: PRDHS. The term "district" signals that both the town and county districts were made one. Mostly it's a legal term to indicate the joining.

I believe the class of 1960 had a grand total of 124 graduating.
Yes, they did rate us all and I got just what I put into it.
I believe that somewhere at one time I had the complete list.
Hell, I was just darn glad to graduate.
Still have my class ring and all 4 High School books.
And I am a very happy retired senior citizen.
I hope this finds all of our class of 1960 enjoying the fruits of there labor and happily retired.
Yes, I did finally pull my head out of the sand and apply myself.
Looking forward to another 1960 High School reunion.

Do not remember how many graduates we had in 1966, but certainly were the best!

Posted by Ord Compton (+11) 12 years ago
I distinctly remember that the class of '72 was the largest graduating then, obviously we were eclipsed by the urchins of '73 according to urcrackinmeup's post.

Posted by Kacey (+3159) 12 years ago
Maybe you were the largest class when you graduated.
