     This website is fantastic. Thank you for doing it! My sister, Allison, just pointed it out to me. I was in the class of '74 although I left Jenks after seventh grade. It brings back a lot of memories.

      Do you remember the murals at Jenks? There were two in the auditorium, I think a Maypole scene and a school lesson scene with a kid in a duncecap. The giant one on the second floor had the big indian and the Wissahickon. One was destroyed by water damage when I was there - I hope the others are still there.

      The "new" structure in front of the boy's entrance was known as the IMC, instructional materials center. This is just a fancy name for the library. It was built sometime when I was at Jenks, probably early 70's

      I just found my third grade class picture from 1969. Elsa Jaeger is no longer principal then. I remember them announcing in school in Mrs. Dunkleberger's class (about 1970) that she had died.

      Mr. Gershman also taught social studies when I was there.

      I am alive and well and living in CT doing medical imaging research.
