The Valley City Times-Record plans to run a historical photograph each week submitted by our readers.

Dennis Nathan said he was on the Grand Prairie Grade School basketball team in 1955-1956. The boys were only defeated by one team that year, the Valley City Hi Liner Eighth graders. The team won two different grade tournaments that year and defeated the Green High School team.

Nathan said the Grand Prairie School was located 13 miles north of the Peak interchange on Interstate 94, and its construction was almost identical to the Green School.
