Elementary Memories

Crap! I can’t believe I missed Calvert Elementary‘s 80th anniversary open house yesterday. You have no idea how annoyed that makes me. I really wanted to go.

I went to Calvert from 1984 to 1991 ... if I did the math right. I had hoped to get to the open house to see if any of my teachers were there. They included:

  • Kindergarten: Mrs. Snyder / Mrs. Pepperil
  • 1st grade: Mrs. Rolfsmeyer
  • 2nd grade: Ms. Cramer
  • 3rd grade: Ms. Mohatt
  • 4th grade: Mrs. Oehlerking
  • 5th grade: Mrs. Dasenbrock
  • 6th grade: Ms. Schneider

I probably butchered the spelling on a few of those. And of course I left out many other people who played important roles in my elementary school memories. I’m looking at you Mr. Magrue, Mrs. Vaneer, Mr. Hobbes, and others.

I have only seen two of my teachers in the past decade. I spoke with Ms. Mohatt under unusual circumstances about five years ago. The Missus used to run on occasion with Mrs. Vaneer, the woman who taught me my times tables.

I would love to know what all those teachers are up to today. At this point I may have to hope I run into them at the grocery store. I can’t believe I missed the open house. Grr.

It was cute. There was a small speech by Dr. Marilyn Moore, asst. supt, and a cool PPt of the school’s history with tidbits like “Dick Cheney went there” and “college view used to not be part of Lincoln”. The choir sang (their music teacher has two days to split them up, around 50-60 kids total) a school song, though I think it was written for them by the music teacher.

Mrs. Snyder is still there, I think. I know that 1 of my 3 had her in the last year or two.
