In the fall 1941, eight little first graders walked proudly into the primary room and took their
desks. They were all boys. Gene Cotton, John Anderson, Harold McDonald, Roger Anderson, James
Vettle, Curtis Anderson, Arvid Thompson and Glenn Moen. Bernard Reel and Barbara Koval joined
the class a few days after school began. Then early the next spring, we had a new arrival to the
class which brought the number of members to 11. He was Ernest Soholt of Lindass. Our teacher for
the first year was Miss Iva Olson of Grand Forks.
In the second grade, we had one small accident in which Gene Cotton got one of his teeth
knocked out. We hod the same teacher again that year.
The third grade was just a plain school year with the exception of getting a new teacher; she
was Miss Hanke of Hillsboro.
We all passed from the third grade into the fourth. Of course this year we thought we were pretty
intelligent, because we got to change rooms. We also got a new teacher. Miss Lindamen of Reynolds.
The fifth and sixth grades were about the same except we got a new teacher in the fifth grade.
Miss Halvorson; she was our sixth grade teacher also. The sixth grade also marked the arrival of a
new member of the class, bringing the membership up to 12. He was Dennis Satermo of Shelly,
Minnesota. This year we made a higher jump, at least from the downstairs to the upstairs. Our
seventh grade teacher was Miss Lovied from Moorhead.
In the eighth grade, we got a new teacher, Mrs. Kaldor from Hillsboro. We all passed our ex-
aminations and hod a very nice graduation.
The next year was a great change for us all. We all became Freshmen of Caledonia High School
with the exception of John and Curtis Anderson, who were going to try their luck in other schools.
John started his freshman year in Halstad and Curtis went to Crookston AC. Later in the year
Bernard Reel and Barbara Koval left school, so our class membership was back to eight. Our teachers
that year were Mrs. Miller from Hillsboro and Mr. Lyann Bringham formerly of Caledonia.
In our sophomore year, we had the pleasant task of initiating the freshmen. That year a member
of our class went to the N.I.P. A. Convention in Grand Forks. Our paper, "THE TIGER", received
a highly superior rating at the convention in Grand Forks. The teachers that year were Mrs. Miller
and Mr. Peckham.
The big event of the junior year was the formal Prom with the faculty and the school board
invited. Our teachers for that year were Mrs. Miller and Mr. Swinland.
We are sorry to say that this is our last year and thet we have to leave this grand old schoolhouse.
There are many things that have happened in the Caledonia School that we will remember for a long
