A First for the Clarkson Academy—Schoolhouse #2

On Wednesday, October 23, 2013, for the first time in 57 years, Brockport school children were back at their desks upstairs at the Academy building practicing their cursive, while another group was in the “library” reading aloud with their CHS teacher. There was a second class on Oct. 24th, and we will have nine more classes visiting, with the last two on November 13th. A total of over 220 children visited in all. When they arrived, the old school bell rang as they got off the bus, and just before they left one child from each of the two classes got the honor of ringing the bell for the other children. And what interested, enthusiastic and well behaved schoolchildren they were! It was a delight to have them see our wonderful old Academy building, and they seemed to really enjoy their time with us, so we couldn’t be happier.
