I remember attending 1st and 2nd grades in this building, 1956-1958. There were four class rooms on each of the two floors. A wide staircase was in the middle of the 1st floor, which led to the second grade classes on the second floor. Mrs. Sensuiti was my first grade teacher. Miss Cribbs was my second grade teacher. Fire drills and bomb drills were very common for us. When the siren would go off for the bomb drills, we would be required to hide under our desks and cover our heads with our hands. Lilac bushes and young trees surrounded this beautiful building. I was very sad when they tore this building down. They made the area into a basketball court and it was still there last time I drove through Arnold.

I also went to school at Arnold School from 1st grade through 3rd grade. I had those same teachers in 1st and 2nd grade - Ms. Sensutti and Mrs. Cribbs. I believe Mrs. McIntrye was my third grade teacher. In fourth grade we were bused to a school in Parnassus while they remodeled Victoria Avenue School. We started 5th grade in the remodeled Victoria Avenue School renamed H.D. Berkey Elementary in 1970.
