Windsor’s five-year-old triplets, Gail, Gay, and Gary Frosch, brought their teacher an apple on their first day of school in 1944. The triplets lived within sight of their school, Roger Wolcott School, on Maple Avenue.
In an interview at their home with their parents, Mr. and Mrs. Allan C. Frosch, the triplets said with excitement, “We like school.” The girl in blue added, “We like our teacher too, but we love our mother best.”
“Me too,” said the little boy in blue.
Their teacher, Marjorie Stephens, said the trio behaved very well. She said that Gail is the leader of the three and volunteered the first song of the day. Gay, the quiet one, busied herself by putting colored blocks into different designs. Gary built things with large blocks and made a big hit with his teacher by putting all his playthings away when quitting time came.
