School Histories

Schleswig Public School


Names of students, faculty, the school board, P. T. A., Fire Department, advertisers, and jokes (maybe we should call them groaners) were extracted from Schlestwak, the school annual book in 1931.

How the name Schlestwak was formed.

The name of the annual was taken from the names of the members of the Senior Class. The first letter from the last names of the girls and the first letter from the first names of the boys. From these letters we formed the word Schlestwak. From the Schlestwak Staff.


To Harm J. Kramer we respectively dedicate this annual. His efforts have helped shape our destinies these last three years.
