I came across this old photo and it sure brought back such wonderful memories. One of my favorite teachers, Mrs. Carole Ashenbrenner. She had snow white hair and always smiling, and made going to first grade a good beginning to school for us. This was the expected position we had when the teacher would enter the room, hands folded and no talking allowed, we would await her" Good morning class" to begin our days. She really wasn't what I would call a strict teacher but was more grandmotherly like...someone we respected and loved.
There were sixteen students in this class( one np in this photo), two whom were twins. Five of us lived in town and the rest in the country and whom we would be meeting for the first time.
OK Evelyn, Nancy, Ronny... or anyone else who can help me out.. we need to fill in the blanks for names...left to right ( not pictured is Ronny Hartz)
First Row going back...Paul Moore, Kathy Ramsdell, Cindy Wellman, Evelyn Vivian, and Janet Zinke
