School has started again in these parts. I've been scanning some of my family's pictures and papers lately. Some of the items in the collection include a set of my father's school report cards. Here is one from 6th grade at West Riverside Elementary:
His grades are all Ss and Os. His "Democratic Living" was top notch, earning all Os for outstanding grades. Apparently he had some trouble turning in work at first, but got caught up. The teacher's comments from the final quarter say:
6/14/56 - It has been a pleasant experience having George in my room this year. I know he will be successful in his future work.
And you know what? He was! And still is!
Here is George back then:
Also in this report card collection are 4th and 7th grade. He had perfect attendance all three years.
Nice job, Dad!
