The Dee School served students in nine grades, primary through eighth. In 1904, the school district was just introducing physical education. An article in The Ogden Standard, 14 May 1970, stated the spring festival program would signal both the end of the school year and of the old Dee Elementary School and again, nodded to the pride of the school curriculum for the past 62 years.
