There we were, eleven of us, who are now graduating, clinging to our mother's skirts and ready to burst into tears. Our first day in school, and most of us scared stiff. We were Edith Sittig, Claire Schatz, Janet Oteiza, Emma Rieken, Catherine Wolf, Janet Ackerman, Charles Ullrich, James Sanders, Jack Hayward, Gloria Triola, and Barbara Winters. Our teacher was Miss Desmond, and I donft think anyone of us can ever forget our Hbandn. What a thrill it was, especially to be the bandleader! 'Christmas time in the kindergarten was wonderful! We set up our manger and trimmed our Christmas Tree. The upper grade children came down to visit our room and sang christmas carols for us. Time passed rapidly and before we knew it we were promoted into the first grade where we started to read and write. One of our favorite stories was uJim and Judyu. Our teacher was Mrs. Deutsch and we received our first report cards from her. In the second grade we started that one subject we did not like too well--Arithmetic. Our teacher, Miss Dugan, used to let us play a game called eraser tag. In the third grade we had Miss Williamson. This year was full of different activities. The Easter clay, the Ha1lowe'en party and the masquerade parade were all fun. , At Christmas time we had to have the biggest Christmas Tree in the school. We made our own decorations and decorated the beautiful tree ourselves. The fourth grade took us to Miss Brown and those awful fractions! We remember many weary drill sessions before we absorbed that math. In the fifth grade, while we were busily learning our lessons with Miss Stoffer, the children from Steuben School went on different trips. One of them was to the Steuben House. The class was accom- panied by Mrs. Vanderbeck. At the end of June we received our report cards, and on them was that little word, Upromotedn. We were so happy. There were two sixth grades, and the teachers were Mrs. Skidmore and Mr. Albinson. In September of this year, children from Steuben School Joined us. They were Gale wolynec, Jill Zimmermann, Dorothy Prachnaik, Jaqueline Orlino, Barbara Breece, Charles Engelhardt, Donald Dermond, Ronald Becker, James Vanderbeck, Harold Sodeur, 19 THE ECHO NME? CLASS HISTORY fCOntinuedl Charles Ullrich, Gloria Triola, Carole Buschbaum, Janet Oteiza, and Walter Spengler. While in the sixth grades we went on several trips, including the Bronx Zoo, Museum of Natural History, and the Planetarium. This was our big year, for in June we graduated from sixth grade into the Junior High School departmental work. Starting in the seventh grade under the guidance of Mrs. Stever and Miss Enright, we had to acquaint ourselves with new rules and regulations, changing of classes and getting used to having gym three times a week. We enjoyed being in the seventh grade because there was an assembly every Friday. This year we could join a club, and besides this, there were many other school activities, Our teachers in the eighth grade were Miss Enright and Mr. Spinelli. During this year we could join the Dancing Class with the ninth grade and we enjoyed our Thursday evenings very much. Some of the girls felt greatly honored to be chosen by Miss Refsnyder to cook and serve the Board of Education dinner in April, and also some of the girls were chosen as cheerleaders for the school. f Our boys were active in sports and at the end of the year, seven of our members were inducted into the Honor Society. Time has passed quickly since we entered Junior High School and now we are in ninth grade where we have had many pleasant times. A few new pupils--Madeline Kendel, Marilyn Pelton, Albert Bolter, Warren Neumann, Fred Fischer, George Celtrick, Jerry Payne, May Sisco, and Therese Canzler joined our group in September and we have 56 members in our class. Our homeroom teachers are Mrs. Martin and Mr. Serio. Our Class -- "The Forty-Niners" 1--have tried to tell you of the interesting events of this year as you read through this book and we hope that you will enjoy them with us. WMWWMMWWMMWWW.

Due to the rising price of paper, the price of HTenshunN had to be raised to five cents. During this year we learned that some of the students were not very prompt and the paper was not always out on time. We were sorry!

The staff this year included: Jill Zimmermann, John Lensi, Dwight Reading, Ronald Becker, Catherine Wolf, Ronald Johnson.

The homeroom teacher gyms - "mc U?4fEf. selected two people from the class, and then ,,. 2? the class voted for the one who would serve. Gigigia The main purpose of having this patrol was W.amf f7gM3,. for the safety of the people walking in the halls. The Hall Patrol did a good job in eliminating much of the confusion such as running in the halls, skipping steps, shouting, slamming lockers and dropping waste paper, which not only spoils the standard of good conduct and appearance, but safety for themselves as well. O U T S I D E P A T R O L The Outside Patrol certainly deserves a hand. Gwen Michels, Gale Wolynec, James Demarest, Robert Barton, Peter Blattner, Ronald Hart, and Richard Rieken patroled out of doors in all kinds of weather, and gave up a lot of their time and extra activ- ities to do this. These boys and girls supervised the grades and made sure that everyone obeyed the outside school rules. They kept the kindergarten people out of danger and trouble and tried to keep traffic running smoothly. There were supervised by Ronald Vaz, chairman and Mr. Serio, sponsor.
