An Interesting School Note
#1
Below is a note my father-in-law (R+I+P) sent to school with his daughter (my SIL) in about 1966 or '67. She was attending a public school in a small, rural Nebraska community with no Catholic school.

Dear Mrs Green,

Please excuse Barbara from the classroom during the recitation of the Lord's Prayer.

As you are probably aware, there are 2 versions of the Lord's Prayer, the long version and the short version.

As a Roman Catholic, Barbara cannot recite the long version and I feel that this difference in versions will only confuse her so therefore it is requested that she be allowed to stay in the hall during the saying of the prayer.

It is my desire that she receive no religious instruction or take no part (Bad grammar, Dad! It should have been 'take part' or 'take any part',) in any religious activity other than Roman Catholic. This is a mandate of my religious beliefs, and my Church.

I know you are only trying to do a good job as a teacher but please leave the religious instruction to me and my Church.

I hope I haven't caused any hurt feelings but I have no choice in this matter & I hope you can see this.

Thank you so much
SSgt Colgan
