This sixth grade class was assigned to Portola Elementary School, as it says on the picture, but the class met at Junction Avenue School. According to Diane (Thompson) Mueller, the school district had just built Portola and planned on making it a kindergarten through sixth grade elementary school. Junction was to be a middle school with just seventh and eighth grade classes. But Portola didnít have enough room for all the sixth grade classes that year, so Mr Gaynor's class was left at Junction. Diane recalls that the class met at Junction, but would walk over to Portola for various assemblies. The next year, Junction included sixth, seventh and eighth grade classes.
