Hazeltine Ave. School September 1960

Here are two pictures from my first day of school in September 1960. One is a picture of the outside of my elementary classroom and the other is me as the letter T and a friend. On the back of the photo is written the name Kathleen and a question mark. So I am unsure if it is the woman or the child. I assume they live in our small complex.

I recall my mom was upset because my Grandfather was in town from Dayton Ohio and he walked me to school. My mom wrote in a school scrapbook that I only spent half a year in kindergarten. I peaked early it seems.

According to my Billboard Top 40 Hits book, "It's Now or Never" by Elvis was the number one song that day. Soon to be followed by a reentry of "The Twist". Holy cow!
