As I look over the many files, folders and pictures that the Good Helper has kept in order for me, I find that we need to share some more of the many pictures of the Onaway High School along with all of the one-room schools that we have covered. There will also be pictures of the students and teachers of these schools.
All of this writer's school days were spent at our good old Onaway Elementary and High School. I may be a little short of the full 13 years that I was supposed to attend. This came from having to learn that being with my dad on the trap line or hunting with him did not count towards my education. They called it being tardy or absent. Somewhere in my collection I have a report card with a note to my mom about keeping Newton in school every day.
I have to agree with the fact that every person needs to get an education, but also know that many things learned from my parents were not taught in school, and there were a few things that I figured out on my own.
To be continued.
