These photos make me cry. I loved this school. In the 50's, it was a sweet neighborhood school. Most of us would skip home for lunch, and go back again for afternoon classes. I can still remember my teachers:Grade 1: Mrs. WeatherheadGrade 2: Mrs. McDonaldGrade 3: Mrs. KingGrade 4 and 5 ( I went to Flint Christian School)Grade 6: Homeroom: Mrs. Cole Music and Science: Mrs. Miller Art: Mrs. Patton ( I had others, but these were the teachers that come to mind. I remember their faces, but their names elude me.These teachers have probably all passed away by now, but I will forever hold their memory. They were a part of who I am today. Do you folks remember the "bumpy hallways"? The wood was warped. I loved that. Do you remember the fun we had at the fairs? I loved the cherry tree. We would win prizes if the cherry had a winning number hanging on it. Remember the smell of the sawdust placed on the on the floor of the gym for protection? Oh, I could go on and on.Oh...do you remember the graduation song? Here are the words:Farewell to HomedaleFarewell to youWe played and studiedThe whole year throughAnd when we leave youWe'll sing this song, Fare thee well, fare thee wellTo Homedale School.
Oh My, I went to this school in the 50's also. You mentioned the names of the teachers Mrs. Cole and Mrs. Miller which I had forgotten. Thank You, Thank You!
Mrs. Forehand, Mrs.Trainer, Mrs.Morris. Mrs.Ollette, Mrs.Clark,Mrs.Vincent,and the other Mrs.Ollette .Homeroom
