I just wondered if anyone on here went to Deferiet Elementary Shcool in the 70's...who was the 6th Grade teacher there - I think that 1973 was the last year that there was a 6th grade...Was Mrs. Hershey the 5th Grade teacher?

Hi - I was the fourth grade teacher in Deferiet during part of this time - up until the closing - Mrs Hershey was the 5th grade teacher during the last years. Here is a link that shows her last class
Donna Waltz taught there before she went to West Carthage then to the Middle School - I'm trying to think who might have been the sixth grade teacher you are thinking of. I think Janice Vining was earlier.

I went to Deferiet Grade School in 1970 and '71. At that time Mrs. Eckelman was the principle and 1st grade teacher. I had Mrs. Sally Hershey for 5th grade and Mr. Dorrance Jones (recently passed) for 6th grade. Ms. Ellen Reynolds was the music teacher and Mr. Fred March was the gym teacher.

Thanks to both of you for the info. Do either of you remember the girl from Thailand that was in 5th grade for a year? I will email Ms. Zando - anyone have any class/school photos from those years?
