Not sure what to say?

I attended Howe School starting in 1955. I had Mrs. Grubb for first grade and Mr. Grubb for 6th grade. They were by far my favorite teachers! I had Mrs. Grubb the year she left for maternity leave.

Mr. Grubb was also the safety squad leader, and all 6th graders had a chance to serve at some point, having a post and keeping kids from running in the halls, etc. I think he also monitored the tennis courts that were flooded in winter for ice skating. He discouraged crack the whip.

Mr. Grubb was my sixth grade teacher and my first male teacher. He was great and I have fond memories of our class. I think the year was 1952-1953. Our high school class just had their 60th High School reunion this fall.

So sorry for your loss he was a great teacher

While I didn't have Mr Grubb for homeroom at Howe, people always thought we were related due to the similarity of our last names. I'll always remember him skating on the Howe "skating rink" (really the flooded tennis courts) and pushing a shovel to help clear the ice. This was in the late 50's-early 60's.

Gayle,
I am sorry to learn of your Dad's passing. I have fond memories of him coaching us in softball. Prayers to you and your family.
Love,

Mr.Grubb was a beloved sixth grade teacher of mine. I will never forget him.
