About the School Name
Haaff Grade School opened in 1961 and is named after Clarence F. Haaff, who spent nearly 40 years in the District, retiring as Supervisor of Buildings and Maintenance.
An engineer by trade, Mr. Haaff felt his greatest contribution to the District and the city was his work in developing what is now known as Dutch Clark Stadium.
Born in 1892, Mr. Haaff died in April 1987 at the age of 94.
