My mother took the 5th Class photo in June 1941, just months before the USA entered World War II. I am the small kid, third from the left in the front row. Note the white-blond hair with bangs. I count 28 kids. Our wonderful teacher, Mrs. Grant, is top left in the photo. My father spent Saturdays in early summer, driving me to each kid's house to take him or her a print of the photo.
The names of those in the photo below(from the left):
- Fourth row: Lena Esposito, Mrs. Grant, Janet Bradley, Marsh Thompson, Bob Lee, Nancy Johns, Jean Lewis, Sue Keller
- Third row: Joanne Horn, Paul Farley, Thomas Bardenett, Lawrence Hoey, Don Hughes, Bob Avery
- Second row: unidentified, Nancy Friedenburg, Bob Nesbitt, Chuck Harlow, unidentified, John Extel
