For GSL family, strong memories from Helen Baker will remain

She sat in the front seat of the truck Friday afternoon, watching the heavy equipment take down her elementary school. Keisha Prafke was sad to see her old elementary school reduced to rubble.
Prafke, a 2015 GSL graduate, went to kindergarten, first and second grades at Helen Baker Elementary School before moving on to Lakeside and Lincoln schools and eventually graduating from Glencoe-Silver Lake High School. Like many other students, her handprint was on the walls at Helen Baker, a tradition dating back to the early-2000s. Teachers helped young students apply their handprint on a wall inside the school and write their name beneath it. Last summer, Prafke had the chance to visit the school, find her handprint and photograph it.
