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.
