1957 Third Grade & 1959 Fifth Grade (Class of 1967)

[This post previously published in the Uible Blog on 4/12/11]

Mrs. Woodmansee's 1957-58 Third Grade class must have been her biggest class ever -- 45 students, 31 girls and 14 boys – good thing we were all so well behaved.  Every other of my elementary school years, except fourth grade, the class was split.  In the 1962 yearbook (seventh grade) there were 42 students in what became part of the East Clinton Class of 1967.  With the help of classmates I might be able to recreate the names of the teachers but here's what I remember:

First Grade - Miss Carey [Shirley McKamey] and Mrs. Fenwick*
Second Grade - Miss Aleda Purtee and Mrs. Johnson (she was daughter of Doyle Wright, married to Bub Johnson)
Third Grade - Mrs. Martha Woodmansee
Fourth Grade - Mrs. Virginia Hildebrant and Miss Smart [Jeanne Wolfe] (4th,6th)
Fifth Grade - Mrs. Ethel King and Miss Smart (5th-6th)
Sixth Grade - Miss Smart (4th-6th) and Mrs. Penn

From the New Vienna days I have class pictures from the third grade and fifth grade and a 1962 yearbook when I was in seventh grade.  Not sure if there were class pictures from other years or yearbooks.  I have seen a 1957 yearbook but cannot find it in my collection.  Anyone have it on their shelves?
