St. Mary's school many smart area children were taught in those rooms.Blessed to have the memory!

I attended this school.

I went to this school. I wish I could go back in time.

What's that building in the back?

School is gone. Convent in the back is gone. Church still there (not seen) & new bldg. on site

You will probably get many replies about this one. I attended St Mary's church my entire life and the Catholic school all 8 years. What I mostly noticed is the loss of the trees. The school building has long been gone and a new building in place of it. The old rectory is gone with a new building in place of, part of the reason so any trees are gone. The nuns convent is no longer there, that is approx. where the new school building is.

Next to the school building on the west side, we played kick ball, a form of soccer I suppose. That was the parking lot actually. I remember kicking the ball and it went up and broke a window. Many good times in that school. On the east side we played workup (softball). The older girls always came out the winners and the younger always had to chase the ball. Memories!!

Brings back a lot of good memories

Technically it was Holy Family school. The convent in the back is now down the hill and is my mom and dad's house that I grew up in

It was St. Mary's first. I spent 8 years there and was the last class to leave before they joined to make it Holy Family. Lots of memories in and out of that building.
