Pioneer Day School with Jo Ann Dunn – “School days, school days, dear old golden rule days…”
Do you ever dream of what school was like 100 years ago in a one room schoolhouse? Grand County has an authentic one room schoolhouse in Pioneer Village in Hot Sulphur Springs. On Friday, July 6, children of elementary age will have an opportunity to experience what it would have been like in an early Grand County school. Taught by Jo Ann Dunn, who has led this program for 19 years in a one room schoolhouse in Jefferson County, the children will have a hands-on experience in our school. They will read from McGuffey Readers, write on slates with chalk, make lemonade and churned ice cream, and recite. The program runs from 10-3 on July 6. Free for GCHA members and $10 for non-members. Please call the museum at 970-725-3939 or email serena@grandcountyhistory. org to make a reservation. Space is limited to the number of desks that we have in the school. If you have questions about the program, you may call Jo Ann Dunn at 303-503-5978.
