The Good Ol' Days

Post by Jane Baldwin Tew

Beth Smith and I got together one afternoon recently to scan our elementary pictures so I could create this post. It was fun reminiscing about "the good ol' days." The following pictures are the 1st - 6th grade class pictures of our years at Moreland Elementary, and that fateful year, the 6th grade, when we combined with those Riverside kids. If you know any of the names where I have question marks, please let me know so I can correct them. Also, if I got any of the names wrong or omitted any, let me know! Just e-mail me by clicking on my name in the list of classmates at the right of the post.

How many of you remember the old Moreland School? Can you remember the auditorium upstairs and the gym downstairs? Can you remember we ate lunch in a little cinder block building behind the school? Do you remember the glass milk bottles that would once in awhile accidentally fall off someone's tray and shatter all over the floor? How embarrassing! Do you remember how the school smelled? It wasn't a bad smell, but a memorable smell. I think it must have been a mixture of the cleaners Mr. Fresh used (wasn't he the janitor?) and the varnish they used on the floors. Do you remember the old radiators that heated the rooms? They were noisy and hot! What else do you remember?

  1. Yea! Jane! Thank you for scanning these and creating the Moreland kids post.

    And what cute kids you were! Even just at a glance I can pick out quite a few of you. There's such innocence at these ages...

    Thanks again Jane and Beth.
