Vol.2..Norwegian Farmer’s Son..March 3rd

March 3rd………..”TELL US ABOUT WHAT REPORT CARDS WERE LIKE WHEN YOU WERE A FIRST GRADER IN THE KIESTER, MINNESOTA PUBLIC SCHOOL.”

POEM – “Never Fear With Mrs. Wiehr” by N. Elliott Noorlun

A two-story, wooden school house stood this ground before construction started on this stately building in 1923. First classes were held in 1924 in the new school.

I got off the bus, With nary a fuss,

As I stared at that tall brick abode.

This First Grade boy, Was thrilled with joy,

As my school supplies I towed.

First room on the right, And, ohhh what a sight,

Right next to those massive stairs.

Which carried “big kids”, With brains under lids,

Upstairs to sit in big chairs.

After Pledge Of Allegiance, Our teacher so sweet,

Had a show-n-tell from each child.

To share who we were, And the past summer’s blur,

I was smitten, For our teacher was mild.

As the school year progressed, I took First Grade tests,

For my alphabet, Colors and such.

And because of her love, That was sent from above,

I loved Mrs. Wiehr ohh so much!!!

A very happy Elliott is in first row on far left. His wunnerful 1st Grade teacher was Mrs. Loretta Wiehr on right.

She showed so much grace, To my little boy face,

That when our report cards came,

I took them all home, Under sweet family dome,

To show Mom and Dad with no shame.

Though I wasn’t the brightest, I felt not the slightest,

Digress from the love that she showed,

No matter the subject, That year was the best,

And her loving allegiance I’ve owed.

A reminder to all, When dealing with small,

Little children, Your heart motives counts,

After many a year, Our dear Mrs. Wiehr,

In this old “First Grader’s” heart still mounts…..with love!!! 😉
