There would be time for family trips to some far away place where those sights and sounds would remain fresh in our memory forever. But as kids we probably never gave a thought to what our teachers would be doing for their summer break. So with the 100th anniversary coming up of the Huntington Beach City School District I thought we would look at how some of Central Elementary school teachers planned their summer in 1958.

It?s surprising how much is happening over at Huntington High these days. Restoration of the tower is progressing nicely and should be completed shortly. The tower has been a symbol of the beloved school for past and present students since it was completed in 1926. This week lets look back at teachers who have formed part of the school?s rich heritage. In 1945 the school had 32 on its faculty. From Compton came English teacher Marian Mize, who had taught in that city while her husband served in the Army Air Corps during World War II. Mize came to our school with a good background in education, having attended Phillips University in Enid, Okla.
