The annual A.E.A. meeting was on November 2,3,4,1955. It was in Little Rock. Several of us grade school teachers had rooms at the Travelodge -- not too far from downtown and the auditorium. We walked -- tried to get good seats where we could view the lovely hats (we all wore hats) worn by some of the other ladies.

That Thursday night, we slipped our high heel shoes off (our feet were tired). After a long meeting, we could hardly get our shoes back on -- we "hobbled" back to the Travelodge. Senator J. William Fulbright had been the featured speaker.

On November 9, 1956 The Kiddie Karnival was presented in the school auditorium by the teachers and pupils of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grades. All the children participated. There were 64 1st graders and 3 teachers; there were 59 2nd graders and 2 teachers; there were 65 3rd graders and 2 teachers; and there were 54 4th graders and 2 teachers.

Rose Caler and I were the only 2nd grade teachers for a number of years. We had programs together -- usually 2 a year. We took our pupils on field trips together. In late spring of 1957, Rose and I, our pupils and a few parents went to Texarkana on the K.C.S. passenger train -- left Ashdown soon after 9:00 a.m. An Ashdown school bus, with our picnic lunches, met us at the depot in Texarkana. We went several places -- the airport, a fire station, Coca-cola plant, etc., before going to Spring Lake Park for our picnic. Judy Gunter's father went that time -- Judy was one of Rose's pupils. We went again another year -- the children learned how to buy tickets. Many had never been on a train.

During the first semester, B.K. Walker, Jr. resigned and became the Little River County School Supervisor. Margaret Daniel became principal. Mildred Franks was employed as a 5th grade teacher.
