Miss Wright, Class of 1960

Teacher: Miss Margaret WrightMy Great Aunt, Miss Margaret Wright, taught at Alta Vista from the time of its opening in 1949 until her retirement. I recall helping her clean out her classroom in the summer of 1961, and being so disappointed that I could never be in her class. I was 6 years old at the time.

I know she was fondly remembered by the many students she had taught in her 40 years of giving her best to children. She passed away at the age of 99 in 1998.

I found this picture of her taken on the front steps of Alta Vista School in May of 1960 after the “choir festival.”

I attended Alta Vista in grades 7 & 8.
