Saint Stephen's Alumni - guestbook

I was from the class of 1966. Remember the dismissal lines? Pike #1, Pike #2, Pike #3 and Butler #1, Butler #2, and Butler #3. I was from Pike 3. How about others? What was your line? Might be fun at the reunion to organize by these numbers. I went home for lunch everyday and always wondered about the experiences of those who brought their lunch and stayed at School to eat?? Thanks. John.

I remember all the great years I spent at St. Stephens. I graduated in 1960 and the nun I remember most of all was Sister Teresia, my first grad nun. All the nuns were great and we were so lucky to have the most wonderful p***. Can't wait for the reunion.

I graduated from Saint Stephens’s in 1971 after transferring to the school from Wright Elementary in the fifth grade. My memories are a mixture of sights and sounds. The sounds of the hand bell ringing for us to form class lines in the yard to go into school; the sound of the ‘clicker’ at Sunday mass to tell us to sit or stand; the view of the church from the choir loft with Sr. Claire Donald conducting; the look on Sr. Anna Dolores’s face when someone crossed her; the smell of spaghetti whenever I went to the convent for guitar lessons. Thanks to Diana for getting this together. I look forward to the reunion dinner.

Hi All, I graduated from St. Stephen's in 1952 and like Diane, I remember the Caulfields also. I was friends with Eileen. Some of my funniest memories are of Sister Aquinas when we were in the 6th grade. She was having some hip problems that year and used a cane to get around. She also used the cane handle to hook the boys collars when they were trying to get away from her. Another thing she used to do to the boys was make them sit under the knee well of her desk when she got really annoyed with them so she wouldn't have to look at them. We used to laugh about it on the way home but we all know if anyone tried those things today they would probably land in jail.
One of my favorite nuns was Sister Agnes Patricia (Aggie Pat) who we were lucky enough to have for 8th grade. When you were in 8th grade if you were very good, you got to go and clean the convent on Friday afternoons. Today's kids get paid for setting up chairs for meetings in our parish but we were honored to do anything like that for free. Wouldn't trade those days for anything. Thanks Diana for doing this and waking up all our old memories.

I was part of the 50th reunion class of 1956, we had our reunion in March 2006, Mary Weldon and Joan Wendell organized the event, we had a great turnout, I was contacted by Diane about a whole school reunion which I though was a great idea, at least all your Brothers and Sisters can come as well, Diane is doing a good job trying to organize this new event, I'm very sure she would appreciate any help you may give her, even if it's just to make some phone calls. when I got involved last year I was extremwely disappointed that our school and fabulous church are no more. however we the students and facility are still around to keep the memory alive. so come out, volunteer and be part of a very special event.

Thank you, see you all at the reunion.
