Wow so many memories...Miss Wolfe and the stories she read after lunch...The Secret Garden..It was great.
In 76 I had Mr Maston ,what a great teacher 4th grade,my siter I believe had Miss Wolfe 3rd grade( in the lower section close to the ball field) her name was Krissy
I am standing on the school grounds as I type this. It brings back such great memories! I was the last class to graduate the fifth grade from lighthouse. This school had such a great principle and teachers... The two teachers that stick out most in my memories was Mrs. Wolf and Mr. Masten
Ms. Raberta, I loved this school, Mr Masten was a great teacher,
I only attended fall of 75 to spring of 76, I believe I was in the second building on the right looking at the buildings from the school yard with your back to 17 mile drive and short street behind the buildings and Lighthouse ave to your right.
I remember a really cool Halloween bash and in the spring what they called the Mini Olympics,
Mohair, Scott Hufford, Tammi Heart, Pam Harmon, were all in my class
I sure would like to see Mr Mastens 4th grade class 75/76 Picture if anyone has it
Could you tell me what year it was that you attended the school in 5th grade?
I attended Lighthouse Elementary School during 4th, 5th, and 6th grades. My teachers were Mr. Masten, Mrs. Wolf, and Mr. Craven. I remember in 4th grade, Mr. Masten reading wonderful books to us in the afternoons: James and the Giant Peach, A Wrinkle in Time. In 4th grade, I had Mrs. Wolf for Math. I loved her Math class so much, that I requested to be in her regular 5th grade class, and was fortunate to be placed in it! Mrs. Wolf has remained my very favorite teacher. She made a good connection with me, and I appreciate her so much. In 6th grade, Mr. Craven was totally cool! I had so much fun in his class. And I remember Mrs. Dardin's class next door, which many of my friends were in. One time, they had a pinata, and unfortunately, my blindfolded friend, Paula, hit Mrs. Dardin's in the head with a baseball bat. Luckily, Mrs. Dardin's made it through, after taking some time off work to recover! I have good memories of Lighthouse Elementary. One time, when I was in 5th grade, a movie was being filmed across the street in the big mansion behind the trees. Called "The Devil's Daughter", it starred Jonathan Frid and Shelley Winters, both of whom I met. I came very close to having a walk-on role, but a 3rd grader with a red sweater was chosen instead. Oh well. And Dr. Philpot was a great principal! And I remember Mrs. Poinciana, the Librarian while I was there. Such good teachers and really nice people!
I was in the first kindergarten class during the 1948-49 school year while my father was a student at the Naval Postgraduate School. I did the next two grades on Guam and went to 12 more schools before graduating from HS. I finally returned to the area in 1970 to study at the Naval Postgraduate School for 18 months. I am retired and living in Portland, OR.
I went to 5th and 6th grade at Lighthouse Elementary.
I believe this was the 1960-61 year for fifth. 1961-62 for 6th.
Fifth grade teacher's name was Miss Bosco?
6th grade teacher was Mrs. Young? Ruth Young?
I went to Robert Down Elementary school until 5th grade.
Transferred to Lighthouse school after that grade year.
My memories of my early youth are so sharp ( even after 60 years!) it scares me sometimes.
I can still remember almost every kid in my 5th and 6th grade classes.
I don't think any would feel it is an invasion of their privacy by me to mention their names. Hope not anyway.
In my 5th grade class the boys were:
Joe Bileci, Manual Brito, Ed Martin, Terry Fink, Bruce Rockwell, Joe Scollet, Eddie-John Fei, Warren Merritt, Tom Shafer, ( maybe ) Gene Roberts Mike Triplett, a couple of others?
Debbie Nixon, Patty Bennett, Sharon Miller, Marie Rubello, Kathy Sheridan, Janet Phillips, Marla Sparks, Mary Jane Mulligan, Barbara Shuler, Stephanie Nelson, etc.?
I even remember kids in our sister 5th grade class with Mr. Kibler!
Gary Shwab, Peter Link, Ronnie Gotshchalk, John Marion, Mike O'Brien, etc.
A couple of grls, Maureen Mitchel, Janet Blair, Meg ?, etc.
All the boys in our 5th grade class had a crush on Miss Bosco. She looked like the actress Michelle Williams.
I think we all wanted to all get together and beat up the man who took her from us in marriage!
Our 6th grade teacher Mrs. Young was firm but nice. She loved the S.F. Giants and during recess she would listen to their games on her transistor radio as she walked and monitored the playground.
It was the 1962 World Series with the Giants playing the Yankees and everyone followed Mrs. Young around during recess cheering every Giant hit or home run!
Our principle was Mr. Plant? Or something like that.
Our band teacher was Mr. Herb Miller.Famous band leader Glenn Miller's actual brother who was killed in World War II !
Cafeteria made their own food!
Other kids a class ahead of us who went to Lighthouse elementary were Charlie Nelson, Jack Stutzman, Danny Hoffman, A girl named "Brown" what a knockout. Bonnie Minafo? Gary Falke, Marcia Mitchell ( most beautiful of all ) Dale Pfleuger?
Don't know if any will ever read this post, and Lighthouse never kept class photos from what I could find.
Nice school though. Nice warm memories.
