School Days

School days, school days
Dear old Golden Rule days
"Reading and 'riting and 'ritmetic
Taught to the tune of the hick'ry stick

Did you go to school in Geneva?  Were you a teacher at a local school?  Join the  Geneva Historical Society and Geneva City School District for Community Conversations: Dialogues About Geneva History, on Tuesday, October 22, 2013 at 7 pm at the Geneva High School Library.

Following a brief overview of the history of schooling in Geneva, historical society staff will share some of the material from our collections related to Geneva's schools. We will then open up the conversation to questions and personal stories from the audience.

Community Conversations is an opportunity to learn and share so the public is welcome to attend and take part in the conversation. We also encourage participants to bring documents, photographs, or other materials related to Geneva’s schools to share. For more information about the program, call the Geneva Historical Society at 315-789-5151.
