Overton was built in 1949.

The school has a gymnasium, and from two to five computers per classroom, said a school official.

Only one or two of the classroom computers is networked and Internet-ready, but the school's computer lab has approximately 24 Dell computers -- all networked and Internet-ready.

Overton has Dell, IBM and Macintosh computers.

The students' parents are "fairly active," an official said. Although most of the parents work, they help with various activities when the school calls on them.

The parent teacher association is vibrant and helpful to the school, the official said.

Overton Elementary hosts brown-bag luncheons for each grade level, and sponsors a Character Counts program year-round to encourage civic responsibility among its students.

A fall festival and five all-school skate nights during the year help students enjoy their experience at Overton, and the facility hosts various family celebrations during the year.

Overton offers four hearing-impaired classes and one supported education class to disabled or handicapped students.
