I too remember Ms. Meehen. Her room was across the hall from Mrs. Rush's room, on the 3rd floor. Sadly, Ms. Meehen died in an airplane crash. I had totally forgotten that I too, took French twice a week from kqed television. That was a wonderful into to French. I also remember that every Monday I ate in the cafeteria. Monday only!! They served hot dogs on Monday and I do remember them to be delicious. Hey I was 9!!!
I was 10 when President Kennedy was shot. We were in the school yard and I remember a police car stopping and officers getting out and appoaching Mrs. MCCullough the principal. Then the flag went to half staff. That was a very sad day.
