Rixey School 1937, Grade 1
Sorry this is so small

Some interesting Rixey history from Jesse Jacobs:

I graduated 8th grade 1944. Both of my parents served on the Rixey school board at separate times.
And I have today a roll top oak desk that came from Rixey and to me it is priceless

Here is a picture that came from Mr. Bourne. 1st and 2nd grade class Rixey 1940.  First row on the left is Allen Main's sister. Mr. Bourne is 2nd row far right.

Seated left to right: Bobby Poole, Cipi or John Garcia, Ted Retchloff, another boy I can't name, Gary Spady, Ronnie Martin and Randy Tucker

Middle row: Elmer Martinez, Cheryle Maruyama, Karen Morlan, Alta Mae Huff, Carmin Gomez, Earlene Moon, Lorna Lou Shelton and Chuck Bourne

Standing: June Witcher, Ruby Wilson, Gene Chapman, Maxine Gomez, Lelaine Stafford(?), can't figure out the boy, Shirley Tomlin, Jim Jordan , Ms. Iris Hendrix Swisher

If anyone can fill in the blanks or has any corrections, please let me know.
