SENIOR CLASS HISTORY
On the bright and shining Tuesday morning of September 2, 1941,
eleven girls and nine boys entered the first grade room to begin
their long struggle to obtain an education at dear old Caledonia
School. Our teacher, Miss Ethel Porter, took one look at this class
and realized that here before her eyes was a class destined to make
history. fRemember, we didn't say what kind of history.j This
extraordinary class was composed of the following pupils: Suzanne
Reed, Patty Arnold, Mary Lou Cochran, Betty Weir, Velma Lyon,
Carol Reish, Rosie Hunt, Nona Rigdon, Marlene Rasey, Ronnie Reed,
Rodney Dice, Mary Ann Steward, Gene Ault, Glendon Kight, John
Mead, Dorothy Osborn, Milton Osborn, and Roy Shuster.
We managed to struggle through our first year of school, and
by the time September rolled around in l942 we were anxious to
start to school once again, as we were second graders. Those who
joined us were: Robert Belt, Charles Blevins, Billy Hough, and
Patty Shonk. Throughout our second grade of school, Miss Porter,
again, was our patient guide and counsellor.
For our third year of school we advanced to a new room and
a new teacher who was Mrs. Eleanor Fichtner. Our number was
increased to 22 by the admission of: Lowell Coon, Wilma Jean
Salisbury, Jack Whiteamire, James Kirk, Joann O'Hare, and Joan
Mrs. Fichtner, who was to be our instructor once again, cheer-
fully welcomed us into the fourth grade in the fall of 1944. There
were now only 21 in our little band. Richard Wright, Myron Arm-
bruster, Dixie Bodell, and Charles Butcher joined us.
During the fourth grade school year we were saddened by the
death of our superintendent, Mr. G. W. Cox, who had been super-
intendent at Caledonia for 15 years.
There was such a large number of pupils in the fourth, fifth,
and sixth grades the next fall, that the fifth grade was divided.
Twelve of us remained downstairs with Mrs. Garber and the fourth
grade, and the rest fninej of us went upstairs with the sixth grade
to meet our new teacher, Miss Jane Brundige. In the course of
the year we gained two new students who were welcomed into our
class. There were: John Boger from Cardington and Barbara
Miller from Green Camp. During the course of the year we lost
two pupils who moved to Marion.
In the sixth grade we were all together once again. Miss Brun-
dige was our teacher that year also. The admission of Harold Cole
and Jim and Dick Detwiler increased our number of 2.1 once again.
All of us worked hard to make that year a success because we
were looking forward to leaving grade school and entering Junior
We entered school the next year feeling quite grown-up, for
we had left recess and other characteristics of grade school be-
hind. We discovered, however, that we were to share our home
room with the eighth grade, the class we had been with in our first
