Carey School District #2

 

The Carey School was located on Elm Shade Road. In 1933, Gladys Rohloff was paid $70.00 per month for teaching and fire insurance on the school building was $7.61. As early as 1941, tuition of $42.94 was paid to the Randall School for students who attended classes outside of the district.

 

In 1944, bills included $129.55 per month to Nellie Rettschlag for teaching, $59.24 to the Clyman Lumber Company for fuel, $20.00 to William Schuett for hauling water, and $25.00 to Anita Ninmann for cleaning the school.

 

Students from the Carey School were transported to the Hustisford Public School in 1946, with the Carey School District paying tuition for their education. The Carey School was part of the 1951 consolidation. The school building was sold to Ruben Degner, who dismantled the building and used it to complete an addition on the west end of his building in the Village of Hustisford.

Miss Kraft inspected the school April 5 and gave the health examinations.

 

The bulletin boards are decorated with birds and flowers symbolic of spring. At the back of the room there is a large chart on which the arrival of our feathered friends are recorded.
