I went there starting in '37 or '38. Mrs. Prather was one of my teachers. It was a BIG school for a little kid to get around in. Big gravel playground outside. I went there through '43 when we moved. We lived on Brown street and I used to walk to school each day. My last year I was a crossing guard or something like that. I remember how proud I was when I got my Badge and the white shoulder/belt thing we wore. There was a little grocery store across the street, Mom and Pop thing, ate my first hamburger there. Anyone remember Emerson?

Was Emerson school the one that became the middle school for Dayton Christian for a few years and can still be seen from 35? So many have been torn down and forget what once was.

Hi Jack S. I graduated from Stivers also. Five years ahead of you in the Class of '48. We're going to celebrate our 65th reunion on September 14. You know you're old when they start holding your class reunions at MCL Cafeteria (known to us oldies as Medi-Care Lounge) on Saturday at 12 Noon. I've already made arrangements with my daughter to be my designated driver in case I overdose on ice tea. LOL Stivers was a great school and I cherish the memories from there. Yay Stivers, Go tigers and "It Was The Good Ship Stivers High" Thanks for allowing this old lady to reminisce a little!

I would have graduated from Stivers in 1950. I remember Dick Oster and Jane Rich. My brother graduated from Steele in '39, not sure why he did not go to Stivers. Used to play basketball in the old Market House. I tell others we are having our next reunion at a Nursing Home. I graduated from Oakwood. My Dad was Doctor Dean Dooley, had our home and office on Brown Street till the mid'40's. Many of his patients were from around that area. Nice reading all the comments ....

thomas6 - Emerson was so huge and especially to a five year old. I have been trying to remember walking to school, have no idea how I got across Brown Street, I don't recall a crossing guard there. I remember most the Christmas shows they did, which they can't do now, with the wise men, the manger and all, a bit part of Christmas for me.

I went to Emerson on Hickory St. I spent my 4th and 5th grades there, school years 74-75 and 75-76. I wish I could find someone who may have pics or knew anyone who may have been there about then. We moved back to Germantown in 76. When Valley View played basketball at UD arena a few years later - I ran into a classmate and I wished I had gotten his info. Some of the names I can remember are - Willis Taylor, Will Back, Sara Watkins. They would all be about 50 yrs old by now. The Principal's name was Mrs. Jones I think and we had a really mean Art teacher.
