Spectators watch as two cranes raze the last wall of the old Oakwood Elementary School on Monday afternoon. Many brought cameras to record the event. The original school, surrounded by towering shade trees, was built in 1917. Demolition of the building was completed late Monday afternoon. Classes will resume Sept. 8 in the new elementary school now under construction adjacent to the old school.
