The US Library of Congress has completed the digitization and has
published online images of the 1926 declarations of friendship between
Poland and the US, "signed" by more than 5 million Polish people, the
vast majority of them students of primary and secondary schools.
Included are also signatures >from business organizations, religious
authorities, and government branches and administrative departments.

The Collection of 111 volumes is organized for easy viewing (browsing)
with links direct to the digital archive. You can browse the signatures to
see who attended schools in your town. To access go to
https://www.loc.gov/collections/polish-declarations/
and scroll down till you find the volume your town is in. Keep in mind
many Galician towns now in the Ukraine, were in Poland in 1926.
