Freebies - Back to School

This is the one I want to go to. I love ring around the rosy.

This is a miner school in Colorado. Note the hats on almost all the kids. Brr.

I love the bell on this school.

There are really a lot of kids in this school!

This is a southern mill school. This is actually quite a lot of kids for the time.

This is the big week here. School is starting. Most of the colleges have already begun and the high schools, middle schools, an elementary schools begin on Tuesday. Our year round schools started the new year about two weeks ago.

I always loved the promise of a new year. New art supplies, paper, notebooks and of course new shoes and clothes. The perfect first day of school outfit. I went to school with the same kids over and over again so that was no big deal. It was all about whose reading class you were in and what French class you had. Each grade only had two classes so we had recess, ate and did the library all together. Not till high school did the big changes happen.

I hope you will enjoy these pictures. We have come a long way. Please support your schools and most importantly your teachers. They are shaping the future.

Dear Elizabeth, thanks for these old school photos. I missed the school supply shopping my kids & I did but now my grandkids & I do it. I had a great time taking my little granddaughters for school outfits. My 11 yr. old grandson... not so much. Thanks for your memories. Sally
