Subject: Attended Scarborough 1954-1957, class of 1963

Yes, I remember you, Marcie, Ned, and many others. I was in your class, grades 3-6. I played the French Horn, so perhaps you remember me in that way. At any rate, I do recall many memories of Scarborough School, especially wandering the Beechwood estate and jumping the brook! After graduating from Pleasantville High School in 1963, I graduated from the Eastman School of Music. Eventually I received my doctorate in Educational Leadership and Foundations and taught 30 years at Brigham Young University. During the process of writing my dissertation on educative curriculum in small schools, I became interested in the educational theory that shaped our learning at Scarborough in the primary grades. It was a very progressive approach. I still have the school year books from those times, but fortunately I do not look like the pictures of me in the 6th grade! Yes, Marcie, I have fond memories of your fun birthday parties. I'm not sure how many people check this site, but thought I'd post. Ellen Lockwood Powley

You'd think that would be a thing one would remember - especially from a sixth-grader - but no!

I do remember you, Ellen, especially from our hours down at the brook with our lovely fourth grade teacher - whose name sadly escapes me at this moment - readings of the Oregon Trail with Mrs. (I.M.P.) Price, and that difficult sixth grade year with our teacher (Mrs G...something...?)who was going through a lot of stuff in her own life - again, her name is not there at the moment - but I do have the yearbooks somewhere and could look some of it up.

The overall impression that remains with me is of security, stability, acceptance and kindness - things I desperately needed (and all kids need, IMO) especially after the old-school strictness of Miss Daniels. It was a magical place and in my mind and heart still is.

Sounds like you've made an interesting career and life for yourself. Glad to hear it.

Cheers,

N
