I attended Caswell School from the second thru the sixth grades.My teachers were Mrs Sparling , Mrs Thoms and Mr Curnow. We had P.E. every day . Art and music once a week. I sincerely believe Caswell ,sixth grade graduating students were better educated than eigth graders at this time. Caswell School was, and I'm sure, still is a wonderful school.
