BUFFALO, NY - Buffalo school kids and teachers headed back to class Thursday with some reasons to celebrate what's ahead for their future.
Officials marked the 100th anniversary of one school as they celebrated the completion of a massive renovation project at another.
When E.B. Green designed the impressive building housing South Park High School, Woodrow Wilson was in the White House, World War I was just breaking out, Charlie Chaplin made his film debut, and Louis Fuhrman, of Furman Boulevard fame, was Buffalo's mayor.
Now, a century later, students file in to begin another year.
But the Buffalo Public Schools at large are also celebrating. Next month they will cut a ribbon at International Prep at Grover, marking the completion of a five-phase, $1.4 billion reconstruction project.
