I always found back to school time an exciting time. The school year has been such a part of my life for so long that it is a big change not preparing for back to school. The change is refreshing and the freedom it will give us will be wonderful. We can travel anytime we want, no waiting for school breaks.
I wonder if my ancestor, Adda Dyer, felt excited about going back to school. This article was found in the Adrian Daily Telegraph, 8 September 1900, page 6, column 3.
School commenced Monday in the Crane district with Miss Adda Dyer teacher for the second term. At the annual school meeting Monday night Warren Bolt was elected director for three years.
East Madison was south of Adrian, Lenawee, Michigan in what is now Madison Township. Can you imagine the changes in education that have occurred since 1900? I wonder what Adda would think of using computers in the classroom, or not being able to use a dunce cap or switch. If you have loved ones going back to school, enjoy!
