A Sandy Pond School Day
Sand Pond was a small neighborhood school. Its 20-25 students did not arrive in big, yellow, buses, nor did they have a school cafeteria. Students made their way to school on foot, and brought their own lunches. During winter, one or more of the older students would bring in firewood for the wood stove. Another would ring the bell, officially beginning the school day, after which the teacher would greet the students, who would stand to recite the Lord’s Prayer and salute the American flag. The teacher would then hand out assignments to the older children and begin working with the younger students.
