Note from Joan NASH O'Dell: The 1929 Picture (top) shows a small porch over the "small room" door. (used for Grades 1-4). By 1937 when Joan started attending this school, the porch was gone as shown in the lower photo.

The lower photo was taken by Joan, year not remembered, and it shows one of the two trees Joan's grandfather, Henry Beardslee, donated to the school to honor Arbor Day - probably 1941-42. The trees were dug up by a couple of the older boys and transported to the school by Doug Thomas in his "gray doodle bug." A small ceremony was conducted so that the children would learn the meaning of Arbor Day and have respect for our trees. The one tree stood for several years after the school was torn down, but it too is gone now.

I can identify a few of the kids & I have 7 names that should be there that I can't match up with a face like Dick Cook & leigh Sweeley. I will seek some help ASAP from some of those that were there. 
The teacher is Ellen Teed (Schneider) & I'm quite sure the male teacher is John Squiers.
I have never seen this pic & I can't figure out just where it was taken on the school grounds.  I was in 3rd. grade if this was taken at the end of the school year which it probably was (May)

I don't remember a jumper like that but I decided that I was kind of
cute & little!

Here is what I have so far
Front row:  Beatrice Brooklacher (first one on the left)
Second row: E. Teed, Carolyn Giles --------Eleanor Smith, Polly Benson, me, Nelds,Geraldine Smith
Haven't figured out the boys except John Squiers
More later

Hi again Joyce-
Also, wanted to let you know that in the April 1938 photo of the Lawrence Corner School children, my mother in law was mis- identified. Carolyn Giles  is sitting in the front row, not the second.She is the little girl on the right in the front row. She is sitting next to her niece Lucielle Giles- who was the little girl in the middle.
