This 1964 or 1965 photo of a second grade class at Whittier School
was supplied by former teacher Anita Beal, known then as Anita Moyer.
Can you help identify these students?

Peggy Byriel Wierson: I was so excited to see this picture - Its my second grade class ( so its really class of 76 )
Row 1 : Cherly Sorenson, Renee Barnhouse Kaysier, Paula Sharp, Denise Dennis-Van Marrel. Peggy Byrie-Wierson, ?, ? , Dave Grindeland, Phil Engan
R...ow 2: Sandy Morrison, Rhonda Nielson, (? Cindy William ), Deana Slater, Patty Meyers, Ricky Doizer, ? , ? , Chuck Harmison
Row 3: Rodger Sydnes, Sarah Mason, ? , David Cole, Miss Moyer, ? , Dennis Sweeney, (? Dennis Poffenburger), ? ,Todd Flemmer
Sarah Mason: I can add only a few things. In the first row next to Peggy is a boy whose last name I remember being Rodriguez. In the middle row, the boy next to Ricky Dozier was from Austrailia. I don't remember his name, but perhaps this will trigger someone else's memory. Also in the middle row is Cindy Williams (I believe she had an s on the end of her last name.) As far as I know, Peggy seems to have correctly identified everyone else.
Kevin Cook: Row 1, 3rd from the right is my brother-in-law Bruce Thomas. He is wearing the checkered shirt. He only went to Ames Schools until 3rd grade then moved to Gilbert. I am forwarding the picture to him and he may be able to name a few more.
