58 Years Later

Hartwell June 2011

Click for : History of Hartwell

In June of 1953 the Sixth Grade Class of Hartwell Elementary said good-bye to familiar faces, class rooms, and halls that were so familiar and were enrolled in seventh grade of the brand "New Woodward School."

  • On September 16th, 2011 that Sixth Grade Class will return for a visit. Joining them will be a teacher, coach, mentor and friend of all……..  Max Coyle who joined us in that move to “New” Woodward in 1953. Most of us have not returned since June of 1953. He will be joined by his wife.
  • We will also have a special guest Thelma Lindner a 1942 Hartwell Graduate and Alumni President of the Hartwell School.

  • For those interested we gather at Hartwell Frisch’s at 1:30 and chat about our past, present and future.
  • If you cannot make Frisch's join us at 2:45 PM in the rear of the school. (Galbraith Road Entrance)
