Kingfield second graders arrive at the Kingfield Historical House (above) ready to re-enact a day of school from 1890. Here, the girls and boys line up in front of Joan Meldrum ready to “make their manners” which is a curtsy and “good morning” from the girls, and a bow of the head and “good morning” from the boys. The girls are (left to right) Karsyn Rolbiecki, Aiyana Savage, Willow Emery, Maggie Swain, Kayleigh Ames, Katelyn Holt, Madison Robb (not visible, behind Katelyn), Madelyn Keller and Natalee MacKenzie. The boys are (left to right) Jonah McCloskey, Baylis Eggleston, Payton Mitchell, Hunter Fortin, Jakob Gilmore, Sam Cockerham, Braeden Webster and Dylan Maynard. At right are Heather McCloskey (foreground) who was chaperone for the day and KES second grade teacher Melissa Hoisington. Last week, Kingfield second graders visited the Kingfield Historical House to re-enact a day of school from 1890. The students made soup, biscuits and apple sauce the day before at school and enjoyed it for lunch at the Historical House.
At left, Natalie MacKenzie and Madelyn Keller enjoy the lunch they helped make the day before at the Kingfield School.
Here, the students write arithmetic sums on small slates. Hunter Fortin (orange shirt) stands to give the teacher the answer to an arithmetic problem. In 1890, students had to stand to speak in class and only when spoken to.
