Larry Scheckel reminisces about growing up with eight siblings on the family farm in the hill country of southwestern Wisconsin and attending the one-room school out on Oak Grove Ridge. Traditions such as the basket social in the fall, the Christmas program, and the end-of-the-year picnic made Oak Grove School the social heart of the community. Learn the joys and challenges faced by students in a country school with twenty-eight kids and one teacher for all eight grades.
