My fond memories as a college student

This was not the first time for me. My beloved Pine Street School was transformed in a similar fashion many years ago. The Lincoln proposal hopes to emulate the manner in which the Pine Street building was preserved.

The Pine still resembles the school I attended from kindergarten through fourth grade. When I pass through my old neighborhood, it is comforting to see it looking very much like it did when it was the last wooden school house in the city to close its doors. Still, seeing these schools brings back memories of a time when life was simple, teachers were creative, strict and loved, and school was the center of childhood.

My family lived next door to the Pine Street School. Age affects memory but I recall my teachers: My third grade class was the last to learn penmanship using pens that drew up ink from wells on our desks.

In fourth grade we were happy to receive a more modern learning implement, a ball point pen. Nonetheless I earned the only D of my educational career in Handwriting, having never mastered the Palmer method using those problematic ink wells.

Today school attendance is an obsession that uses many programs to ensure that children come to school. The Pine Street School rewarded perfect attendance in a given term by conferring upon the conscientious attendee an afternoon off from school. Thus it happened that one sunny May afternoon I was dismissed.

At least it felt joyful until I looked up at the 3rd grade classroom and saw that my class was having an unannounced party.

One boy, sitting at an open window on the second floor imagine that happening todaywas eating a Dixie cup. After the Pine, we walked to the Lincoln School for grades 5 and 6.

Miss Miller was my sweet, sharp, progressive teacher. She put up a large chart on the wall which listed the names of every student. If you performed well on a task she would place a sticky gold star next to your name.

At the end of each month the student with the most stars would ceremoniously march up to the front of the class to select a reward that the teacher had placed on a table.

These rewards were old books of hers that she thought might spark a love of reading. I won a few times, and this method worked for me, although those with less interest in reading usually received fewer starts.

Most of my Lincoln memories involved recess in the huge concrete play area behind the school. Perhaps a distance of 60 yards. And so it was that the entire school population cheered us on as I lost by a step to the Harbor Terrace 5th grader.

The victor, my opponent, was Ernie Fleming. As any local basketball fan knows, he went on to lead Durfee High School to the State Championship, and later played college and pro basketball.
