We read your article about the one-room school in Wytopitlock (BDN, Sept. 22). We are a one-room schoolhouse, and we are not on an island. We have 12 pupils in our school. Our grades are K -5. Our school was built in 1835. Its name is Shirley Elementary School.
Our teacher, Mrs. Lessard, is also our principal. We have an ed. tech., Mrs. Watson, who also acts as secretary and cafeteria worker. Parents help on field trips by driving.
We do fund-raisers.
