Topic: Elementary school Memorie

Hi- Dennis (denny) Horn here....great memories of Spruance- I also recall the JFK ordeal...I was in 7th grade at Fels,  getting on the bus at end of day, and hearing of it then....My first instinct was to go to Spruance and bond with my teachers, having just graduated from there....the big TV's were set up in the auditorium aisles, and we all commiserated....I recall fondly, when we bore witness to JFK on Castor Ave...I was perched on a newspaper box, at the SW corner of magee and Castor...the motorcade came south on Castor, so I was within 25 feet of THE MAN !!! Too bad I forgot a camera!!

Donna- I'd love to share Spruance pics...I have some, and need your e-mail address

Topic: Elementary school Memorie
Hi all,  This is Donna Westle Batterman.  I'm having so much fun reading everyone's blogs.  Stirring up a lot of memories.  I went to Spruance/Fels.  Does anyone remember being in Mrs. Meyer's 4th grade class?  Until she felt your handwriting skills were improved enough to suit her, you were not permitted to be a member of the "Pen Club" and still had to use a pencil.  It was a big deal to belong to the "Pen Club".  Mrs. Kramer was my 1st grade teacher & died a number of years ago.  Her son is one of the OB dr.'s in the area.  I was in 7th grade at Fels on that Friday afternoon when Kennedy was shot.  My 7th grade Social Studies teacher, Mr. Gottlieb made us all make scrapbooks of the whole assassination as an assignment.  My father was really angry that we had to cut up newspapers that were part of history.  So he decided to do make the "Scrapbook" himself because he wanted it done correctly.  The only time my parents did that.  But I got an A.  By the way,  my daughter has taught in Moore for a few years now.  I know in September she will be teaching 4th grade in room 217 in the old building for those of you who can remember it.  I am trying to get off from work for the reunion in October & hope to see you all then.  Now I have to go find my Spruance pictures.
