|York Township Elementary School, Fulton County, Ohio|
In those days, York had grades 1 - 8 and I attended all eight years there. I do remember most of my teachers - Mrs. Allomong, Miss Rashley, Mrs. Peabody, Mrs. Schmidlin, Mrs. Shelt, Mr. Krugh, Mr. Green and Mr. Hemmings. It was a tight knit, little family there, out in the country among the fields. Definitely, there something to be said for the little, community schools and the security and feeling of belonging that they offer to children. It's too bad that most have given way to consolidation. I'm not sure we have that right.
