School days, school days,
Dear old golden rule days.
'Readin' and 'ritin' and 'rithmetic,
Taught to the tune of a hick'ry stick.
You were my queen in calico,
I was your bashful barefoot beau,
And you wrote on my slate,
'I love you, Joe,'
When we were a couple of kids.

This photo is from the Grundy County Herald's 1976 Bicenntennial Feature. I believe the lady on the left (in back row) may be Mrs. Everett Roberts, but I'm not sure. Maybe one of the other adults is Gertrude Kennerly who taught there. Can anyone help identify others in the picture? If you can identify anyone in this photo, please contact Janelle Taylor.
UPDATE!! The students have been identified!
