  1. My Older brother and I started at Koz., did time at Murray school (School song used the tune of “The Halls of Montezuma…”, did seventh and eighth grade at Bret Hart. I did first grade in the cottages at Murray. To this day I identify elementary education with the smell of sour milk on wood floors, along with an army of substitute teachers – each more bizarre than the last.

    Interesting, Richard,

    In my time, the cottages were happy, although I was only there a year. I loved the windows. Also, the population of the small branch allowed for no kids who were much older, something that was rather nice in first or second grade. I had one excellent, although very strict, teacher, Ms. Nolan, a teacher who moved with us to the next branch at the Jewish Temple on Greenwood. We also enjoyed the playground equipment in the park. The Murray School was not there then.
