I started school at Jolo in 1955. Does anyone remember Mrs. Spry. or Miss Horn? Also Mrs Breeding had a sister that taught there , but I can't remember her name.

I don't think C. Breeding had a sister and neither did her mother in law F. Breeding, unless there was another Breeding that taught there before I attended that school and that was in the middle ages.

You are both right...itwas way back in the dark ages when F. Breeding did have a sister who taught at Jolo for a short while. F. Breeding had sisters Betty, and Louise (Bootie). It was either Betty who was a Miles by marriage or F. Breedings sister in law Marita Asbury, I forget which. Does that ring a bell for anyone ?

It doesn't ring a bell, but its opened up something I didn't know, I didn't realize that Mrs. Breeding had a sister. Was she a wonderful teacher like Fern?

Mrs. Breeding's sister Betty also taught at the old Bradshaw Elementary in town back in the 50's. Sixth grade I believe. Her husband, Jim MIles, was coach at the Jr. High and her brother, Bill Asbury was too.

I started at Jolo Elementary in 1980. I had been going to Bradshaw Elem. until the 4th grade and then we moved. I was scared to death. I was in Mrs. Lula Wimmer's 4th grade class and one of the first things I think of are the wooden floors and the folding "closet" doors where you would hang your coats and lunch boxes, etc..... in the class room. Her class was the first and only time I ever got a "paddling". I was talking too much!! Wow, whatever happened to "paddling"?? I rememeber Mr. Breeding was the principle and his mother I believe taught Kindergarten. I have so many memories of that school. It makes me so sad every time I come back home and realize what has happened to our little town, "Jolo". It used to be a safe and happy place. It was such a pretty little town. Or at least thats how I remember it. Oh, one other memory...... In Melba Mullin's 5th grade class, on a Friday the 13th, a huge light fixture fell between two rows of desks and scared us all to death!! We thought it was a Friday the 13th hoax!! lol
Yep Keisha I remeber that. Scared all of us. Was'nt Lisa sitting next to you when that light fell? Gosh I have so many memories of that school. We did have a great time there.

I started Jolo Elementary in 1970 with Patsy Mullins as my 1st grade teacher. Audra Hurley was the principal at the time. I had Ferne Breeding in the 2nd grade, Hester Payne for 3rd, Lula Wimmer for 4th and Sam Breeding for 5th and 6th grades.

I remember many winter days hoping I would make it down that icy hill on my feet rather than my behind! The steps were installed after I had moved onto Bradshaw Jr. High and Iaeger High.

I have long since moved away from my hometown of Jolo, but, I have treasured memories of growing up there and my six years at Jolo Elementary School.

I had to laugh when I stumbled upon Keisha's posting because as I was reading it I was remembering the whole thing. Reading this made me smile and particularly to see there was another person that read the same thing and had the same memory.

As a matter of fact, I remember walking home a few times, the people selling the snacks at the bottom to raise money for the carnival in the fall. I remember some teachers, some were evil, some were great, all in all they were there to make sure we made something of ourselves. I rember some choir trips and some basketball games, and the long black steps. Slow dancing with your crush because your parents pushed you together, and the awards day was always a treat. Was never a fan of the music trailor though, always gave me the spooks. The slush puppies were great. I did learn not to stage a fight because it looked real enough to have to write a 12 page paper. Yeah, so good times I'm sure everyone had at that school. It's a shame that now it just sits up on the hill doing nothing.

Hello,

I went to Jolo Elementary in the 3rd grade 1966. Mrs. Breeding was my teacher. I was in class with Pamela Estep and remained friends after moving back to Iaeger the next year. I loved the pop machine. I learned to love TAB there. Had gone to Iaeger in the 1st and 2nd and they never had a pop machine. I thought Jolo Elementary was the best school in the world, cause they had the pop machine. HaHa the things that impress eight year olds.
