I think, is my second grade class and, I think, the teacher is Mrs. Peroni. In that one, I'm standing on the top row next to the teacher. My friend, Ramona Black, is next to me. Norma


Belle Pointe 1935
Fifth grade class. Miss/Mrs. Gambrel was the teacher. I'm the girl in the dark dress sitting on the right end of the second row. Ramona is standing behind me. I think I remember the name of the boy sitting on the ground right in front with a sweater and a big smile. His name was Robert Craig. I believe Billy Degan and Bobby Henson are also in that picture on the end of the first row. Norma
