Last time you were at your

grade school ?

I haven't been inside since I went there but a few years ago, I walked my dog around the building and looked in the windows (school was out ), man a flood of memories come back that I haven't thought of since I went there, it was nice

My first grade school burned to the ground many years ago, but I've driven around my old hometown to revisit the past, and to show my kids where I grew up.

I also worked at my old high school for 5 years, now that was funny. I couldn't call the teachers by their first names, no matter how many times they told me to! I was pretty young (22-27) and one time the vice principal asked me for a hall pass.

I drive by mine a couple of times a week, it was turned into an Adult Education center about 25 years ago, with the same name, and this year they leased it out to a private school, so now the name has changed. But it's been 43 years since I went to school there.

Would be strange to me to have my kids having the same teachers as me. Teachers here max out on their retirement at 30 years service, and most had years on the job when I had them, so they were long retired by the time my kids hit Kindergarten.

Unhappy

The school I went too was built in 1867. I started first grade in 1954 so it was pretty old then. It stood empty for many years after they opened the new school and was finally torn down in 1965. It's just a parking lot now. I was in there after they had moved to the new one and all the hardwood floors had buckled. It was kinda sad to see.

When I attended them. We moved around a lot,so it was more then just 1. My first school for kindergrten actually closed last year was made into a community center. I went to my old high school last June during a reunion with a couple friends and we were able to walk around: the gym still smelled the same lol.

We drove past mine about our years ago when my granddaddy passed away and we were over that way. I haven't been in the school in many, may years.

I was in the very first 1st grade class in that school and we planted a tree out front. That tree has really grown over the years and it was really neat to see as we drove by.

Remember what should be remembered, and forget what should be forgotten.Alter what is changeable, and accept what is unchangeable.

I went to 3 different ones in 3 cities, and haven't been back to any of them in many years. We have lived in a different state for over 30 years and no reason to go back by any of them.

Oh wow! That's horrible that something like that happened but what a sweet way for the students to remember them by.
