Forty years ago, Beltrami, MN used to have it’s own elementary school, before it completely merged with the school in Fertile, MN. I was lucky enough to have attended grades 1 through 4 there, the last four years of its existence.
One of the treats for the parents (and for the kids, I guess) was the choir concerts we would perform in the auditorium at various intervals during the school year. Earlier this year, a good friend treated me with the following photo attached to an email. My memory is pretty fuzzy, but I would guess that we weren’t particularly thrilled with the outfits. And yes, that motley bunch represents Mrs. Regedahl’s entire 1st and 2nd grade classes.

Have a Merry Christmas, and a safe and healthy New Year.
Looks like Mrs. Ragedahls class.Dont know the time but know the people. Too far back to remember. School’s gone but not the memories.
I was WONDERING about that. Looks like I need to edit that post and make a couple adjustments.
How are you doing, DW? Not sure how you found my blog, but welcome!
That is your IA bother. AZ brother was home sick that day.
Yeah, right. And creating a new ID for each comment isn’t helping your case.
