Green School was a one-room schoolhouse that was located on Farm Road 1344, which is west of Floresville in the Camp Ranch community. Martha Bartek was one of the first teachers. Theo Boening told me more about the school than anyone else when I talked to him one time. They first built it on a sandy hill, but when the wind blew, it was so much sand, the kids could not go out for recess. So they moved down the hill close to the road. When it was time for “books,” the teacher would always come out and ring the bell, indicating recess was over. He loved recess, but he really loved learning too. . . .
