School started this week!  It is quieter here at the museum without children visiting.  We wish all the school kids a great school year!

If you can read this Thank a Teacher!

    Having been employed at the Park Rapids School District for a number of years, I have seen pictures of staff members and students from the earlier years. I do recognize a few of the teachers pictured above. —
    Back row: (L to R) Margaret Nygaard (5th grade), Lucy Nordberg (1st grade), Jeanette Beardsley (7th & 8th grade social studies and choir), ____, _____.
    Front row: (L to R) Jane Taig (6th grade, _____, _____, _____, Corrine Johnson(2nd grade), and Irene Kaliher (6th grade). So far, there are 5 teachers in the picture that I do not recognize.

    Like Dorothy, I recognized the same teachers she did….I’m one on her, I had Mrs. Texley for my kindergarten teacher. I was in the afternoon class….we attended school in the armory.

    Yes, I recognize the same teachers as Dorothy and Charlene. They taught at Frank White Elementary too. I had Lucy Nordberg for first grade1958-59 and Jane Taig for 6th grade 1963-64. Such good teachers!
