Dad's schoolhouse

My father, Steven Polewchak, began the first grade at this one-room schoolhouse in 1920. He, along with his sister Katheryne, could not speak a word of English; Ukrainian was used at my grandfather's home. They learned in a hurry- no special treatment in those days.
The school in now part of Lake Metroparks, housing a nature education center.
