1934-35. Probably 8'th Grade
Picture from LaNell (DeWees) Frick via Maggie (Barnes) Walker. Identifications were written on the back of the picture.
The eight grade was taught as part of highschool as it was in the following
two years. The picture is similar in content to one the next year
(See 1935-36 pictures) also identified as an eighth grade picture.
Back row left to right: Miss Bertha Jackson, J. E. Herring, Junior Miller, Cecil Ledgerwood, Lee York, Mrs. Mabel Wilks. Front Row: Gaynelle Ellis, Lucille Green, Cordene Thomas, Ruby Fowler, Ruth L. Fowler, Geneva Dempsey, LaNell DeWees
In this one, two teachers are shown as was the case in the next year. Mrs. Mabel Wilks was probably the main teacher and may have taught other subjects in highschool. Miss Bertha Jackson has been identified as at least the room teacher for the 4th and 5th grade room this year. There may have been some team teaching. Both Mrs. Wilks and Miss Jackson were very interested in dramatics and elocution. In LaNell's notations indicate that all but the two little girls and Ruby Fowler are in the eighth grade. Ruby is also pictured with the 6&7 grades and Gaynelle with the 1&2 grades on this same day. I can think of no reason that Ruby would be in this one.
