Life in 1950

Life in 1950


Third grade found me in Mrs. Everhart’s class at Central Grade School. (I’m the first on the left in the middle row.) We skipped rope on the narrow sidewalks and played jacks at the bottom of this staircase at recess. At the end of sixth grade, this school became the junior high so I went to this school for nine years.

As I look over these dear faces, I see many are gone. Others, I wonder about their lives now almost 70 years later.

That was definitely a different era. What memories do you have of third grade?

  1. Third Grade for me-1953. Miss Shisler. The year I decided I would be a teacher as I mimicked (sp) her in my mind as she taught. Swinging and merry go round were the big recess activities and having my town friend, Judy, stay all night at the dairy farm. Paper dolls and reading many books–Mystery UP the Chimney, Mystery at the Little Red Schoolhouse, etc. were my favorite things. Thank you for reminding me.
