1. Not sure if she is writing an "H" or "A". Could each semester be "A" and "B" ? But not sure why all girls wouldn't be the same. Further research has found that the area high school was North or North Hill High School, which in 1925 was originally located at what is currently Jennings Junior HS. The current North HS was built in 1931.We have found both older daughters on graduating lists for North (Hill)(more on the details later...). More information on North HS.
2. Not sure which junior HS she is referring to.
3. Harris could be Harris Elementary School. Formerly Caldwell School, annexed by Akron Public Schools in 1916, and current school constructed in 1922.
More information on Harris.
4. Is Jim a relative of our writers husband? Another mention of the mother-in-law, I supposed she is living there, but funny how she
doesn't mention her much except when someone takes her away for awhile.
Overall sounds like an exciting day for the family.

Typical 1925 High School Seniors
