Grade School - 1950-1958
1950 is the starting point in education for most members of the Class of '62. At that time, Waxahachie had 3 elementary schools: Bullard Heights, Ferris Ward, and Marvin Elementary. Later, in 1954, a 4th elementary school was added: Northside Elementary and opened for the second semester students in the Spring of 1955. Some members of the class spent half a year at Ferris and half a year at Northside (5th grade only). We all attended Marvin 6th-8th grades.
Here's a collection of class photos from that period:
Here's your opportunity to see how well you really remember all those old classmates from all those OTHER years. Join us now as we look back at some of those grade school class photos that a couple of you have been kind enough to share with us all. Remember how we laughed at our parents when they told us to write the names of our classmates down on the back of the group photos.... well NOW you know why. We'll give you a peek after you've tried to guess the student and teacher's names. Even WE have a few missing names, so if you see a question mark for a name and if you know thename, drop us a note and we'll update our files. If you'd care to share some or all of your grade school photos, please contact us
(firstname.lastname@example.org) and we'll make the arrangements.
A Special "Thank You" to Janice Stephenson, Barbara Wray, and Boyd Thornton for sharing these with us!
