First Day of School!

As another school year welcomes its students, the 1939 Boynton first graders below walked into a very different school – blackboards that were black, no air-conditioning, no back-packs, no cafeteria. When was the last time you saw a little boy wearing overalls? The wooden stairs at the 1913 Schoolhouse (celebrating its centennial this year) still bear the marks of spurs from the boots of the little boys. If most of these kids were six years of age in 1939, that means each will be turning 80 years old this year, if they still grace this earth. If you know anyone in this picture, please email us at

    Ginger, I have two 1949 Boynton High School Yearbooks, one my Brother’s and one mine. It has Senior class and Junior, Sophmore and Freshman classes with photos. Might be helpful in identifying some as I think this photo is probably one or two years younger than me. Let me know if you would like to have one of them. Sue
