Not everyone has been identified (indicated with an X) and we are not sure of a few of the students (see question marks).

Our records show that there were three sixth-grade classes at Northside in the 1953-54 school year. The teachers for the other classes were Mr. Bob Torrance and Mr. James Donovan. Many of these students were in the first DAHS graduating class, 1960.

When I was in third grade, Mr Ouderkirk accidentally punched me in the face (he was trying to scare me i think) and I never said a word about it.
He became Principal when I was in 4th grade. I got sent to the principal office a few times after that and I alway got off with a warning..
I could be wrong so if I am please correct me.
