I believe that this is a second grade class photo, the photo would have been taken in the fall of 1958 at the Osage Elementary School in Osage, Minnesota.
There seems to be nineteen kids in the class..Linda must have been sick that day as she is not in this photo..she owns the Antique Shop in town, and could name almost all of the kids in this photo. I could only name fourteen.
There were two Connie’s in this class..can you believe it? Connie H. and Connie Y. Now I am Connie H. but then I was a Connie Y.
I was wearing one of my favorite dresses, my Mother saved it for me..it is in Far Guys Trunk..someday I will get it out and take a photo of it. It was my favorite color sapphire blue satin, the front had some fru fru white lacey stuff and there was a fake red rose that was pinned to the front..fancy smancy.
Our teacher was Mrs. Zauche, she was a lovely lady, and a wonderful teacher. I loved her, well who doesn’t love their second grade teacher..she was also a very special neighbor lady.
This is what she wrote about me in my progress report:
“ Connie Joy is doing good work in all subjects. She does beautiful written work and is very conscientious about finishing her work. But sometimes she talks too much in the lunch room.” :)
