|Dan Crannie attended Coolidge Elementary Kindergarten through Sixth grade.
“I'm glad to hear that its being repurposed and not torn down because it's still a monument to the old community. Favorite teacher was the art teacher. She was really encouraging, and she encouraged me to follow my art. She signed me up for a summer session at the d waters art institute. It was very community oriented, we had so many involved parents and homeroom mothers and volunteers that would help do things at the school. It was a great time to go to school in flint. “
