Alphabe-Thursday - The Letter C

It's time again for Alphabe-Thursday and this week we're doing the letter C. For information on Alphabe-Thursday and a list of participants visit Jenny's blog.



Of course, the first thing I thought of that started with a C was Class. This was my Kindergarten Class in Westwood, NJ. Miss Cornell (another C word) was my teacher and she also lived across the street from us. I'm in the front row on the left.


This was my first Class paper in Kindergarten.



This was the Class graduation program cover.



This was my Class diploma.



And this was my first grade Class at Ketler Elementary in Westwood, NJ. I was small and always sat in the front of the class. That's me in the front on the left. Miss Moore was the teacher and many years before my mother had also been in her class. I can remember being very concerned because she was old and I thought she might die. She didn't. She continued to teach and then eventually retired.


And this is another picture of my first grade Class. I guess that year the photographer came twice...once for an indoor picture and once for an outdoor picture. That's me in the front row on the right.


I could show you all the rest of my elementary school Classes, but I figured this was probably enough for one day.

  2. Such sweetphotos! The only year my school took a class photo was in eighth grade...there were 50 children in my class! I don't know how the teacher kept control of such a large class but we were all very well behaved. Memories :-)

  18. Love the early pictures and memorabilia. Yes, that teacher looks frighteningly old in the picture :-). I like how plain the classroom is. You can think. I think classrooms are much too hectically crammed with stuff these days.
