From the Archives

I'm going through old photos to post on my Class of 60 Reunion blog. Here's a photo of my 6th grade class in Webster Elementary School way back in 1954. I'm in the front row of girls (3rd from the right) in front of our brand new school building. The old building was torn down during our 5th grade year (we had to go to another school during that time) and rebuilt, using the bottom floor as part of the new building. I remember the old building best - we used to go down to the basement during lunch time and play jacks on the smooth, cool cement floor. I don't believe the new building had a basement. When the city consolidated the 6 small elementary schools into one large newer building, the "new" Webster was used for preschool classes. I don't think it's used for anything anymore.

Hi Janie,

Yes, that is Ann two down from me (and Barbie is looking over her shoulder). I'm going to be putting a lot of photos on my HHS Class of 60 Blog, and Ann will be in some of them, so check it out now and again.
