Treasure Chest Tuesday - Betty Carringer's High School Report Card Summary

Today's Tuesday's Treasure is the report card summary for my mother, Betty Virginia (Carringer) Seaver, to San Diego High School.

Some notes:

*  This is on the other side of the Cumulative Record Card posted last week.

*  I can't figure out some of the class names on this card.  

*  This covers nine semesters between 1932 and 1936.  She was at Roosevelt Junior High in 1932-3, but it's part of the high school report card.  For 1933 through 1936, she was at San Diego High School.

*  The 7th semester may be a summer school session where she took two classes - typing and shorthand.

*  I never knew that she took two years Latin and of French!

*  It looks like she didn't do well in Geometry.

*  It looks like Gym didn't count toward the GPA, but she did well in it.   Another surprise.

*  She received 30 As, 10 Bs and 4 Cs. On a 4-3-2-1 scale for A-B-C-D, the grade point average is 3.59. 

The source citation for this record is:

San Diego [Calif.] Senior High School, "Cumulative Record Card," Cum File Cabinet C-D, Betty Virginia Carringer card, 1932-1936; San Diego High School Alumni Association History Center, San Diego, California.

My friend, and San Diego genealogy colleague, Yvette Porter Moore, is also a graduate of San Diego High School, and is current Historian of the SDHS Alumni Association.  When she told me that on Facebook, I asked her if there were any school records, besides Yearbooks, for me, my mother, and my grandparents.  There were!!  Yvette copied them for me and sent them via email.  I was genea-smacked by them.  What treasures.

More records like this one to come!
