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!

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate

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?
