Third Grade
1961-62, Mrs. Brown's 3rd grade class, Espaņola Elementary. Beta building, center room on the side with windows to the playground. (If there were three classrooms on that side, we might have been the one nearest the fountain/bathroom.)

There was a new set of monkey bars, and we saw older kids (4th, 5th, 6th graders) get hurt once or twice a week, right out the window.

I was eight years old in 3rd grade. Most kids turn nine during that year, but I had a summer birthday.

I definitely added these later; this wasn't my 3rd grade handwriting, but my spelling wasn't great and corrections are welcome.


I posted on Facebook in "Espaņola, do you remember when?" here, in 2017, so there might be commentary there, or you could leave some,
if Facebook is still around when you see this.
