Everyone In Arkansas Remembers These 7 Things In School

There was a time in the lives of many 80s kids in Arkansas where you weren’t anybody if you didn’t have a Trapper Keeper. There are also many Arkansans out there from the 60s and 70s and earlier who cringe or smile (according to memory) at the term “ditto sheets” or the name “Pee-Chee”. College kids filled up blue books. Lunchboxes that weren’t properly latched spilled out all your edible business if you happened to be running to catch the bus. Oh yes, fellow Arkansans – we remember the old school days of our youth!

Now that we’ve taken this trip down memory lane it’s nearly time to get ready for the upcoming school year. How far have we come these days, anyway? The nostalgia of “old-school” Arkansas only makes the influx of today’s classroom technology seem more intimidating! Did we miss any key nostalgic school experiences from your youth?
