Old School ... had to practice this every day!

Cursive writing ~Old School.Loved learning to write cursive. My second grade teacher taught this. I still take pride in my writing.

school dress

I loved my plaid dresses as a kid. I went to a school where all the girls wore dresses to school. We could wear pants under our dresses on gym days and winter days, but we had to take them off once gym class was over or we got to school.

School Desk - they all looked like this, didn't they?

School Desk (always liked the built in book storage) Boy I remember these. The best desk for school. I remember pulling out one text book and all of them falling out along with all of the paper you had crammed in there too. Oh the memories!

1968--school assembly- look at all those skirts.  No jeans.  Clean and combed hair.  This was everyday look.  This is how you dressed for school.
