1955 1st Grade School Letter -Sep. 6

1955 1st Grade School Letter -Sep. 6
1955 Shirley Carey (McKamey) hired as First Grade Teacher at New Vienna School
Wilmington News-Journal July 8, 1955 p.3 Clipping 
1955 Catherine starts school – since there was no Kindergarten in New Vienna in the 1950s, school began with First Grade – for the first time in the school history there were two first grade classrooms, Mrs. Fenwick taught first grade in New Vienna from 1945-1966.  Miss Carey who became Mrs. McKamey during the 1955-56 school year, later became a kindergarten teacher.

The lunch hour was longer than it is today – possibly to accommodate in-town students who were allowed to go home for lunch though that rarely happened in the Uible family.  It also allowed time for students to eat all their food which some teachers insisted was necessary.`
