Happy New Year!!
It was the custom of some of the early teachers in Boundary County to make souvenir cards for their students at the end of the school year. This is a card Ms. Inez L. Aldridge made for her third and fourth grade students in 1915. She taught at the Northside School, District No. 14. We are told that it also included a list of the student’s names.
Did you attend the Northside School? Please share your memory with us. You can email firstname.lastname@example.org or we can be reached at 208-267-7720.
