Retired USD 506 teacher Joyce Rhodes tells Meadow View Grade School fourth-graders about what it was like to attend a one-room rural school. The school celebrated Kansas Day on Friday. Students also rode in a horse-drawn wagon, and some dressed in western wear. Rhodes’ 100-year-old mother, Laura Gann of Parsons, answered questions from the students. Kansas Day is on Sunday.
