The text in this picture of the schoolhouse that my grandmother attended explains why the above portrait is captioned 1910 Winnetoon's First 10th Grade since the school only had ten grades.

And here's what the local Norfolk Weekly News-Journal had to say about the commencement exercises.

The historical society has a lot of information about Winnetoon's past here.
