Sixth grade was one of the more memorable grades for me. Our class was in a temporary classroom and had an old kerosene heater in the back corner. I remember one cold winter day some boys were horsing around and bumped into the heater knocking the flue pipe loose and the whole classroom filled with smoke. We all got to go outside for an “extra” recess that day. The boys in the class were often playing around in the class and the young teacher had a hard time keeping things under control but it made a fun and lively class.
