How School Used To Be

Holly Creek, Beehive, and HGS By Foster Schwarz

Fred Conard

My great-grandfather, Fred Conard, went to a one room country school, called Holly Creek. It was very different than my school, Hoxie Grade School . Holly Creek was warmed by coal, all the grades were in one room and taught to by one teacher. There were no buses and some kids rode horses to school. Here is a picture of the inside and the outside of Holly Creek.

Differences

Many things have changed since my great-grandfather went to school. Here are some pictures of some differences. They include lunch containers, school bells, desks, and writing surfaces.

The Bells

The school bell my great grandfather used and the one my school uses today sound very different. Here are two videos of me demonstrating ringing the bells.
