Theme of the week: Back to School

The Oscar Minor Waring School's 8th grade class of 1971.

"This was my 8th grade graduating class of June 1971" - Oscar Minor Waring School (St. Louis, MO)

Now that it’s September—students and teachers are heading back to school—we want YOUR back-to-school stories!

Was your school closed? Was the building demolished?  Pull together some old photos and memories, and add your school to our website!

Check out the the “Institutional Life” section of our website, where others have added their memories of beloved teachers and grueling classes.

St. Louis Institute of Music, circa 1959.

"The Institute was housed in a rambling 3-story brick building that seemed to have been around forever, even in the 1960s." - St. Louis Institute of Music (St. Louis, MO)

Sarah Sears remembers The St. Louis Institute of Music, where “the sound of tinkling pianos created an atmosphere of happy industry.” We’d love to hear more stories about the places you made your “home away from home” during the school year.

Track down some old classmates, gather your own school memories, and get posting!
