  • I went to this school from 1959-1963. I loved this school. I had a Mrs. Walker, Mr. black, Miss Bill, Mr. Majors. I lived on 60th Place. My brother and I went to the Temple for matinĂ©es. The little candy store across the school was great for treats and Mr. Lees general store on Budlong for lb of bologna 25cent. Those were the days!

  • I attended this school 1951-1955. Good school in a tough neighborhood! I remember a Mrs. Mc Pheeley (sic). I remember having to walk over to John Muir Jr. High if I got sick at school. I lived on 60th street and used to go to the Temple for a movie,Sears to shop,Harvard Park to play and Slauson Avenue for to play and hang around. There was also a little store directly across from Budlong Avenue School. Sometimes I'd go to the Carlton and every 4th time you'd attend you could see a movie for free! Also, there was the Knole (sic) which later became a church. Those were the "good old days"!
