Here's a look at what you may see.
|Before an official school day begins, the teacher leads a tour around the schoolhouse, |
pointing out the building's unique attributes and histories.
|Girls dress in skirts, shawls and bonnets. The|
teacher is also dressed in the long dress, hat, and shawl
of the period.
|The teacher shows a student how the bell was rung.|
But the teacher uses a handbell today.
|At the sound of the bell, students line up, single file, |
to the left side of the front door.
|Then, one by one, they greet the teacher.|
Boys bow and girls curtsey before
walking inside to begin the day.
|The rest of the day is spent like any|
other school day at Advance in 1878.
