Kathleen Hart, born 1933 

In September of 1938 the school opened and I was in the first kindergarten class.

It was pleasant and everything was very new and lovely.

We painted a lot and at that time people thought the teachers were too progressive and lenient and that the children had too much freedom.  All I really remember about it was nap time.  I do remember being in a dance recital program somewhere around this time.  We had some kind of hats and mine fell off.  I was so embarrassed I ran off the stage and to my father who was in the audience.  This was probably the start of my fear of speaking in front of people.
