A New Project to Honor a Hero

Originally constructed in 1965 and with additions in 1969 and 1977, the new Jim Darcy Elementary School eliminated three outdated, disconnected facilities that were dangerously close to a highly congested area in the Helena Valley.

Jim Darcy Elementary School is named after a Helena war hero who was a pilot during the Vietnam War. He was killed while flying on a mission to save several soldiers when his aircraft was shot down.
