Fun Facts from the good old days when
Sis, Ginny, and Don were at St. Wendelin!
~ Grades 1-4 shared a room in the downstairs
~ Grades 5-8 shared a room upstairs
~ There were no steps between upstairs and downstairs so to get a message from one room to the other required sending a student outside and around the building.
~ There were no school buses. Students walked to and from school from Old East Butler Road. Their route took them through the woods and a large field.
~ As today, all students know each other; however, all teachers were nuns.
