For Molly Eckhardt, babysitting was her first adventure in working with kids. She loved it and the children she cared for. There was so much influence in the one-on-one time spent working with children on Molly’s life, she felt that teaching was worth exploring.

Different experiences and her personality led her to the teaching field. After gaining some experience with babysitting, Molly later had the opportunity to help children with sports and swimming. 

In her senior class in high school she took part in the Peer Helping program, which was an elective class that gave her the opportunity to work in the elementary school for a semester. She assisted in the kindergarten classroom for one hour, four days a week, and worked in the Title 1 room, where she was able to work one-on-one with a student for 20 minutes a day with reading skills. 

Molly was pleased to see the progress that child made in the time she worked with her. Seeing the difference she could make in that one person’s young life led her into the education field where she will be able to teach and inspire many more children.

Group holds annual reunion

alt

The Ellendale High School class of 1947 held its annual reunion on September 27, 2014 at noon at George’s of Geneva. There were nine members and four visitors present. Each one shared a little of their life since graduation, which included family, employment and where they have lived for most of the past sixty-seven years. A good time was enjoyed by all and they look forward to their reunion next year on the fourth Saturday of September 2015 at George’s of Geneva.

100 Years Back – 1914 

• When Joseph, the twelve-year-old son of Carl Youngberg of Otisco Township attempted to deliver a baseball with unusual speed Monday last, he succeeded in throwing a swift ball and in doing so snapped off the bone in his right arm about halfway between the shoulder and the elbow. The boy was brought to Dr. E. J. Batchelder, who states that he never before set an arm broken in a like manner and has heard of very few cases of the kind. Joseph was playing ball with another boy and was evidently training to become a big league pitcher. One way of accounting for the accident is that the bone in the arm must have been weak.

• Those who climb to success by pulling somebody else down are not entitled to succeed.

• Notice—The public library will be open next Saturday afternoon. A charge of 50 cents a year will be made for the use of books. This charge is very reasonable, considering the large number of books available, and it should readily be paid by those who have been in the habit of patronizing the library.

100 Years Ago – 1914

• A train known as the Great Northern Flyer has made 89 consecutive runs between St. Paul and Seattle and has been on time each trip. A really remarkable record.

• School will open on Sept. 7th. All pupils should be present on that day for enrollment, assignment of places and of work. The high school assembly room is being enlarged to accommodate the increasing high school enrollment for the coming year. A room is being prepared in the basement to be used as a laboratory. Other changes are being made so that when school work gets underway every foot of space in the basement and first two floors will be utilized.

The Star Eagle recently received a letter from Joan (Radke) Cutajar, who resides in Australia. Joan graduated from Ellendale High School in 1965, which means in 2015 it will be the 50th anniversary of their graduation. Joan is concerned and anxious to get in touch with former classmates and to find out if anyone is doing anything to organize this historical event.
