Boy, how memories fade.....did grades 1 & 2 here I think in the mid 40s....not a long walk from 701 Prospect.

Classic, beautiful, impressive, and built to last.

It looks larger here. When you drive by, between those two ninety degree corners, the school seems all scrunched in by trees and houses.
So this school and the Park Street School existed at the same time and quite close to each other??

I was in Mrs Dicken's room for 1st grade and Miss Roberts' for 2nd grade. This was the same time as Arlen, but we were in different rooms. Mrs. Frick was the principal. First and Second Graders were not allowed to play marbles "for keeps".

I was in 1st grade in the back building and in 2nd grade in the front building
1950 and 1951. 3rd, 4th and 5th was at Park Street and 6th was split between the May Street Gym and Park Street. We went to the New May Street school for 7th and 8th.

It's great to see that building, and Ha[[y Birthday, Coe School! My grandmother, Lanora Frick, was principal there in the 50s and 60s. My mom taught first grade (I always wondered what it wa like for her to have her mother as her boss!). I have some very happy memories with my friends and classmates.

Susan, I always had a lot of respect for your grandmother...stern but fair and a nice lady. and a fellow Prospect resident.....

My kids went to both Park Street & Coe Primary. Sad but true, not many people in Hood River even know that there actually was a school where the play park is located now. Even some young school teachers I asked. 😜

I lost most of my marbles in the Park Street school yard. That said I got through life OK!! Where does Carl Shinkle live now; I remember him. Went to the 1964 reunion of Hood River high school; saw a few people that remembered me--moved in 1961

I live in Salem now. I didn't go to the Hood River reunion because I moved to The Dalles after my sophomore year. Didn't quite feel right going to either reunion.

I remember having 1 & 2 grade here, I remember there was a coed side and a girls side to the playground. I had Ms. Dickien's for 1st grade. I still have my report cards and the comments were always I was a social butterfly. I remember Jimmy Henderson kissed me on the playground. I think I went there in 1957.
I now live in Reno, NV

My memories of Coe Primary was whenever a kid had a bleeding nose, Mrs Dickson (first name Pansy) would have me take them to the lavatory to stop their bleeding. My mother was a nurse and she taught me how. I was elected class president, not for the nose bleed treatments but because I was taller that the rest of the kids. There were only a couple of boys taller than me. Finally, that Summer between Freshman and Sophmore years, the boys had a growth spurt.

I was in Mrs. Pansy Deskin's first grade class in 1953. She was wonderful! Her husband was my bus driver. I also remember Mrs. Frick. I also remember that the year Mrs. Deskin retired was the same year her 1953 first grade class graduated from Hood River High School. A bunch of us went to visit her that day. She was very special to us and we loved her. Our first grade classroom was in the newer building behind the old two story building where I attended Mrs. Fisher's 2nd grade class - I,might have been the girl with the nose bleeds, Peggy. Yes, I went to Park Street School and May Street School as well.
