School until it closed. On the picture you have, the woman

Hi Mildred, Fernwald School closed in 1938, then for one year, we lived in Colby and in 1940, we started at Butlerville School. John & Marshall Girad never went to school when I went. I went 3 years to Fernwald and started at Butler in 5th Grade. My Brothers, Tom, Jim & Bob were in school with me at Butler. Tom went 2 yrs. I went 4 yrs., Jim 6 years and Bob went about 5 years and my sister, Myona, went (I think), 1 year to Butler.
I hope this helps with the history of the school somewhat.
Sincerely, Leona Colts
