   Chrisman, Ed    Class of 1947. The last midterm class in the school district. Remember teachers Miss Poly Sweet and Miss Hussey. The Principal was also our soccer coach. Still know many of my classmates. Part of the experience was going to Gray Y Gym class across the street and play on the trampoline.
   Chrisman, Jim    I attended Fauntleroy School through most of WW2. I remember that we had lots of air raid drills. We also had paper drives and tinfoil drives as part of the war effort. For bringing in lots of paper we were rewarded with army stripes that could be sewn on our coats. There was a St Barnard dog that lived close by named "Fauntleroy" and he liked chasing our soccer ball when we played and I think he actually could get it in his mouth. In the winter you could come early and hang out with the janitor

   Durkee, Karen (Dixon)   I attended Fauntleroy School for four years, 1961 - 1965, 3rd through 6th grade. I had fun on the playground making houses out of the big maple leaves and playing tetherball. Also remember working in the lunch line and watching nature movies in the

   Green, Claudia (Games)   My favorite teachers were Mrs. Carlson (1st grade), Mrs. Skotheim (3rd grade) and Mrs. Dial (6th grade). Several of us were rather bored in 4th grade, so put together a musical of Hansel and Gretel, that was performed for the PTA. Of course the teac
   Hashimoto, Glenda (Lee)   I was so excited to serve as a patrol officer and earn my first "letter!" It was fun to stuff leaves in the playground fence in the autumn to spell words, spin around on bars, play red light, green light and capture the flag. Had many memorable years of spelling bees in the auditorium. Some of my best school years ever!
   Howard, Bruce    I was a student at Fauntleroy School from K-6, 1951 through 1957. I have fond memories of my days at Fauntleroy, from my unforgettable teachers to my times on the playground and in the lunchroom.
   Johnson, Mary (Steyh)   Looking for "jewels" in the sand along the edges of the playground, during recess. (The jewels being bits of colored glass.) Also playing house at recess, with one boy and about four girls.
   Kannitzer, Bruce    In the fall the big Maple tree leaves would collect along the south side of the playground. The girls would make outlines of houses by piling leaves in a line to form a room. A group of boys would put their arms out like airplanes and run across the playground and shuffle their feet to mess up the leaf piles and get the girls to chase us.
   Karlstrom, Ernest    Otto and Alva Karlstrom family moved to beach place in Fauntleroy cove 1921. The oldest of five brothers was Rey who started grade school age 7. My four older brothers are deceased, I the youngest now 89 years. For all of us, the schoolhouse, church, and YMCA were the focus of our activities. One of my great memories is caching site of the Osprey with Lawrence or Ken Colman at the helm steaming into the Colman beach dock to pick us up for that idyllic week at Horsehead Bay. Ah, memories.

   Patterson, Nancy (Hamlin)   I have many wonderful memories of Fauntleroy School. Some of the best memories revolve around having Mrs. Herren for my teacher for both 4th and 5th grades. I thought she was the most wonderful person in the world next to my mom. She understood children so well and taught me many skills that I could used in my own teaching career.
   Peverly, Susan (Steyh)   Mrs. Beall 3rd grade in portable–she punished boys with an old green slipper.

   Stimpson, Virginia (Couden)   My brother (Bill), sister (Barb), and I attended Fauntleroy school and then headed each afternoon for activities at the Fauntleroy Community Church and Y.M.C.A. We felt very much a part of a caring community, one that afforded us a great foundation for further learning and for working for and caring for others.
