<quoted text>I don't believe so. Mr and Mrs W were before my time, so your aging yourself Zoo. The last school nurse I can remember back to was Mrs Swartzman, Bernard's wife, he was a fun teacher. I don't remember Mrs Carter either but I remember Miss Zehr really well and see her occasionally. Then I don't think she has forgot any kid from elementary. All you have to do is say who you are and she remembers. Then she will start listing your siblings. She is quite spry for her age. So many wonderful memories.
Yes, Miss Zehr lives on AND as far as I know she still drives HER MOTHER around!Ms. Carter taught high school math and was probably one of the last teachers that practiced corporal punishment. She did TRY to scale it back to just hitting "desks" with books and rulers to get our attention. As I recall, it was our class that finally retired her.

<quoted text>Au contraire dear lady. Memories are never gone till we are. Mr. Sherneck, Mrs. Carter, and yes "Connie" are gone now but the memories of them live on, as will the layouts and experiences separate to each class and student. I remember Mr. and Mrs. Williams. They were the only black people I knew till I left Lowville. Mrs. Williams, as the school nurse, with her starched blouses and cool hands that calmed my fevered brow was a great comfort to me. Is there still a dental hygenist office in school, I wonder?
what class are you, Mr Jones was the first black shop teacher ,Mr Williams would teach drums would say ma,pa over an over

Class of 1970. We started the year the school was first centralized. I didn't take shop but I did take mechanical drawing with Mr. Kazmarack who would throw hundred dollar sets of drawing intruments for us to "catch." Not in band but did take chorus with Marguerite Harris.

Oh my, I started with the open school where you didn't have to go to study hall and could leave the school starting the year after you graduated. I was in the 8th grade. It was a five year trial. But we were a rowdy bunch apparantly and after graduating in 1975, they went back to the closed school where you had to be in classes and have excuses to go to the bathroom etc. We had it pretty easy unless we got caught in the halls by Mrs. McDonald, spent many hours in room 66 with Ma Adams. Very sweet lady. Times have changed. Wow.

I take it you went to high school before it was centralized. Was high school compulsory, or elective then? Did you attend one of the district's one room school houses? Was there transportation or did you board in the village?

Hey, I love the old one room school houses. My husand attended one for one year before they were centralized. And I now live in a former one room school house that was converted to a home. I hear alot of old stories from people who attended this school.

Yes Mrs. Swartzman was the dental hygenist, at the time the nurse was either Mrs. Murphy she was really old or Mrs. Marcotte who was the nurse when I graduated.

I'm familiar w/ Hamlins, it's where the plow waited to escort the busses through the drifts up Rt. 177. So after 8th grade, school was an Option? You mentioned Mr. Kaz, I wondered if you were a student of his.

This is taking us wwwaaayyyy off topic. BUT... Although Nash were the first cars with an air conditioning system(about 1938), my all time favorite cars were STUDEBAKERS. They started in business making wagons for the civil war and the gold rush, then airplane engines for WWI and WWII and pioneered automatic transmissions, getting gear shifts up off the floor. Even with all that history they still went bankrupt in 1963, long before GM made it fashionable.
