The students of Jenny Lind Elementary during the years of 1978 to 1988 had a unique elementary experience that they will never forget.
The students of the 1978 to 1988 Jenny Lind Elementary school were educated in a building that was erected in 1937. The school was later renovated in 1950 and 1954. A 1931 inspection of Jenny Lind Elementary resulted in the requirement of a new boiler room, along with more fire safety. To say the least the school was old, and the students and staff recognized that and respected it, giving the building care to help it withstand the test of time.

Although the students of Jenny Lind Elementary were educated in a historic building, the things they remember most are the educators and staff of the school. Art Sloth, a principal of Jenny Lind, is recognized as a caring man, who always cared for the well being of all of the students within the school. Mr. Sloth also maintained a nursery, which the students were able to learn about the nurturing of plants. Many students share memories of gym class with Mr. Andersen, and his “Chicken Fat” workout DVD. They recall having to climb ropes, running in place, and doing sit-ups to the DVD’s instructions. Other students shared personal stories of their homeroom classmates and teachers, each one of them interactive and intriguing in their own way.
