1952 - Mrs. Raybacks 4th Grade Class at Melrose Elementary School

1952 - Mrs. Rayback's 4th Grade Class at Melrose Elementary School

Melrose Elementary School, Miami, Florida

Billy Long is in the top row, third from the right. Billy remembers that others in this class were Jerry Coleman, Jerry Gardner, Billy Godfrey, Jeanette Gustovich, Joan Stein, Helen Calibreeze, Don Franklin and Jimmy Peacock. According to the guest post, her sister Betty is the 3rd girl from the right in the 2nd row from the bottom.

Wow, I wonder where they all are now? Most of these kids would have graduated from high school in 1960.

I attended Melrose from '64-'67. Mr. Seawall was principal then. Mrs. Blake was my 1st grade teacher, and Mrs. James my 3rd. My 2nd grade teacher's name escapes me at the moment. Mrs. Blake later became principal - she was one of my favorite teachers ever.

I went to Melrose from 1950 thru 1954. My 4th grade teacher was Mrs Collums and my 5th grade teacher was Miss Cook. Does anyone remember Mrs Bragg and her assistant Mrs Haygood. I was also at Kendall Children,s Home in the early 40,s

kinder time indeed Marvin...notice how the girls and boys are dressed and they are neat and clean. Try to put this photo up against a 2007 class of 4th graders and explain to me how far we have come (or not). All of us kids (4) went to Melrose and graduated from Jackson. I live in Texas now but spent 33years in the Magic City
before moving everyone else it seems.
