12A Wednesday, June 6, 2001 School News Photos by Debra Coates Students in Julle Hochrein's third-grade class from Pioneer Elementary School spent a recent morning learning about what it was like to attend class in this one-room schoolhouse. Marjorie Clarke, center, shared her experiences. During a class field trip to the Taylorsville third-grade students Emily Huggins and learn about Maidu grinding rocks. These contemporary students donned period cos- tumes for a trip back to 1917, a year when the origi- nal Pioneer Elementary one-room schoolhouse served students. By Debra Coates Managing Editor In 1917, Marjorie Clarke spent her days in the origi- nal one-room schoolhouse that was Pioneer Elemen- tary School. In 2001, Clarke was back in class--the same one-room building now located at the Plumas-Sierra County Fair- grounds--telling students what school was like back then. Julie Hochrein's third- graders listened quietly as Clarke described the school and then peppered her with questions for more details.: .No, she didn't remember any girls' pigtails getting dunked in the ink wells. There weren't many girls in the school, and she, herself, had short hair. • They liked to play mar- bles and, in the winter, pulled each other on sleds or skated on ice. • Yes, they brought their lunch to school. Their fa- vorite containers were deco- rative, square tobacco tins. • They studied many sub- jects and used to figure math problems on the blackboard. Clarke told the students that her grandmother found- ed the school in 1857. Clarke's parents attended the school, as did she and her siblings, and later, all three of Clarke's children at- tended Pioneer Elementary School. Even after the new school was built, the one-room schoolhouse continued to be used as the kindergarten classroom. After Clarke's presenta- tion, the students completed their own studies in the building before hiking back to their classroom at the modern day school. i Pioneer Elementary School third-grader Kath- eryne Drybread rings an old school bell at the Tay- Iorsville Museum.
