Before Hoover

Original post made by Louise on Dec 4, 2013

The name of the school was South Palo Alto Elementary School. There was one room and teacher for first and second grade (Mrs. Fatjo) and one room for third and fourth grade (Mrs. Lavelle) who was also the Principal. Ii remember we were all sent to Channing for a year while they rebuilt the school and renamed it Herbert Hoover.
