School closes its doors for the last time

Friday was the last day of classes at Beckham Bates Elementary School not only for the semester, but for good.

Due to restructuring issues, many of the school's close-knit students and staff will be separated come next fall.

The staff hopes the growing pains of the moving process will help the students in the long run.

No matter what the future holds, the staff says there will never be anyone closer than the "Beckham Bates family."

Students and teachers say they'll never forget the good times they had and the memories they shared at their small school.
