|Recollections:||"I went to Parkside School from the 1st through the 8th grade. Some of the teachers at the time I attended (1936 - 1944) included Miss Esther
Tonge (later married and was named Mrs. Woods), Miss Alice Cohen, Mrs. Kilpatrick, Miss Simmons, Mrs. Wood. There used to be a little copse of
trees, where the stores are located now, and we used to play in there during recess. I have only fond memories of my childhood in Parkside. In one of my albums, I have the article that was written about our 8th grade graduation."
"Even though I only attended Parkside school for a very short time half a session in 6th grade. The one teacher I had was John Brushak(sp) and as a Basketball coach, the gym teacher was Robert Schwabe. Prior to attending Parkside school I attended Our Lady Of Charity and I used to walk through the parking lot of the school and would run into a crossing guard on the corner, Mr. Weible (sp). He was a fixture on Edgemont and Forrestview for a long time back in the '50's and '60's."
