Gallatin's story

Dear Editor:I am a 5th grader at Rio Hondo Elementary My dad had me read the article on Gallatin Elementary School written by Christian Brown. ("Looking Back…Gallatin Elementary School," 1/8/09) The article was about how amazing it was and how the school district changed. It was also amazing how they brought the bell over from New York to California on a boat. Another thing that was interesting was that there were teachers whose names were Principal Maude Price and Mrs. Unsworth and now have schools named after them. It's funny how a school would just have 23 kids back then. I couldn't imagine being barefooted at Gallatin school, like the kids there used to be. Thank you for writing such a good article on our local history. - Kevin Duron, Downey
