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
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
'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
The fourth grade took us to Miss Brown and those awful fractions!
We remember many weary drill sessions before we absorbed that
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,

Charles Ullrich, Gloria Triola, Carole Buschbaum, Janet Oteiza, and
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.

The Hall Patrol members were chosen three

The Hall Patrol did a good job in eliminating much of the confusion
such as running in the halls, skipping steps, shouting, slamming lockers

Our strong band can ne'er be broken,
Formed in Junior High.
Far surpassing wealth unspoken,
Sealed by friendships tie.
Alma Mater, Alma Mater,
deep graven on each heart,
Shall be found unwavering true,
when we from life shall part.
Dosey Doe, and around we go
New Milford, New Milford's on the go.
Swing your partners
Hit 'em high,
We can beat them if we try.
STEP ON THE STARTER
Step on the starter
Crank up the lizzie
Let's get busy.
Let's shuffle on up
And truck on down,
'Cause New Milford's team
comin' to town
Susie "Q" to the left,
Susie "Q" to the right,
C'mon New Milford
Fight, Fight, Fight.
