Transcript of Back in the day...
Time and Place...
Mabel attended two elementary schools.
She went to Laurel Fork Elementary school from first grade to the fourth grade.
From the fifth grade to seventh grade she attended Gladesboro Elementary school.
Laurel Fork Elementary was located at the old Laurel Fork Fire Department.
Gladesboro Elementary is still one of our Carroll County Schools today.
Every class was combined. For example first and second grade was together.
She had six different elementary school teachers.
Pros and Cons
In elementary school she did not have a favorite and least favorite classes.
Her answer was "I did not have a favorite or least favorite, I liked school, but I did it because I had to.
In high school she loved Home Economics because she had the best teacher, Helan McGrady.
Her least favorite course in high school was algebra because it was useless. She says, she still hasn't used it today.
Classes was great for her because she had loving teachers.
Everything was home cooked. We had beans and taters and chocolate cake with icing.
My favorite lunch was tuna salad, mashed potatoes, peas, rolls, and for dessert peanut butter cookies.
Her classes had about 25 to 35 students in them.
There were 164 students in her graduating class.
She attended Hillsville High School from 1962 to 1967.
Hillsville High School is Carroll County Middle School today.
School started at 8:45 to 3:25.
The Best Year.
Her best year was her senior year because of the freedom she had. She was an office aid for two hours a day. She was trusted to be in the office and she could go to town when she was asked by any teacher.
How where lessons taught?
The teachers used maps, chalk boards, and outside learning.
How was technology used?
We used type writers and adding machines (calculators).
If you was in trouble the teachers paddled you, hit you over the head, hit you a ruler, pull your hair, or put you in a corner.
If you where in trouble your mom and dad did not want to know.
Dances and School Functions
Sadie Hawkins Dance is where you dress like hillbillies and the girls asked the guys.
Snow Queen Dance was a winter dance and you wore your Sunday best.
We had football, basketball, baseball, and cheer.
