I attended this school from the 4th to 6th grade, 1940-1943 (prior to that the John Greenleaf Whitter). A favorite recess game was tag, called "Tuttles," because the "safe spot" in the brick paved recess yard was landing on a brick with the name Tuttle (obviously the manufacturer of the bricks). Tuttle bricks were intersperesed throughout. We had frequent wartime practice drills. When the alarm sounded, we marched into the hallway, sat on a book and sang songs, A Long Way to Tipperary,The Marine Hymn, when Johnny Comes Marching Home, etc.
