Hello,

Don't seem to be many graduates from the class of 1961. I believe that everyone did graduate that year. If your out their how about signing the guest book.

Hi Everyone,
I am so thrilled to be a part of the upcoming reunion. I graduated in 1956 from St. Stephen's. Those 8 yrs. were some of the happiest of my life. I especially remember Sr. Rita Margaret, Sr. Rose Carmel, Sr. St. Raphael, and Sr. Theresina, but most of all, Sr. Clare Annice. I attended the reunion for the class of '56 last March and it really put me back in time and brought back some of my most cherished memories. I hope to see them all again in September. My sisters and brother also attended St. Stephens. See you in September!!
Barbara

Hello everyone. I am so happy to hear about the reunion. I often wondered what became of Sr. Agnes Patricia's class of 1943. I was taught by Sr. Leona (7th gr.) and Sr. Maria Assumpta (6th gr.)I spent only these 5 grades @St. Stephen's and I can honestly say they were three of the best school years of my life. I moved from Carlisle St. to West Philly and I went to WC Girls instead of Little Flower. Looking forward to the reunion.

I am a graduate of St. Stephens, class of '73. My family lived on Airdrie St., and them on Germantown Ave. My mother, Dolores Grimes Zielinksi also attended St. Stephens. Not sure of graduation year. I have run into many people from our parish, and I am related to the McSherry's and Wright's from Park Ave., and was a classmate of Jimmy Malcolm, who I grew up with, and told everyone we were cousin's, since he was neighbors to the Wright Family and we spent a lot of time together. As kids, myself, Michael Wright & Jmmmy seemed to get into a lot of trouble. I have a lot of a lot of fond memories of St. Stephen's, too many to mention on this space. A few not so fond memories, too. It was a great time of life, when people still went to their neighborhood school, and most of their family went there, too. Everyone knew everyone! Not anymore, unfortunately. I hope to see more entries in this guest book from classmates and people from St. Stephen's Parish.

Hi everyone! So glad that Diana is giving us another chance to get together. Friendships we formed at St. Stephen's stay within our hearts. Within minutes of seeing each other at our 50th Reunion we were back in a time and place where we all got to be kids again. We grew up together and shared so many common bonds. Who else in our present lives would remember how much fun it was to play in a small schoolyard with no playground equipment, to buy penny candy at recess, practice for May Processions, shop at "the Avenue," go to all day Satuday matinees at the Strand, look so forward to attending Altar Boy Picnics at Willow Grove, play games at Hunting Park and in the neighborhood with complicated rules that we all understood from watching "the big kids" in the neighborhood? All the neighbors seemed to watch out for us. We were so lucky to go to St. Stephen's and to be taught by the good Sisters of St. Joseph! God bless them all and our class of 1956.

Greetings to everyone, especially the alumni of St. Stephen's grade school. I look forward to the reunion because I missed the 50th reunion that Joni Pawlish and Mary Carre held in March. I have two brothers and two sisters who went to St. Stephen's. One brother, Fran, graduated in 1955. I am so proud to have graduated from our school. I am also very proud of all its alumni. See you in September.

Hello,
My memories of Saint Stephens is still fresh in my mind, from 1965-1974. Sister Clair Donald, Sister Jon Briget, Sister Bernard, and Sister Francis Helen. I still have my first grade class pictures.
Walking to school from 10th street. I can recall an incident that is funny now. The nuns made us safety guards. Our job was to keep the peace and to be a road guard crossing. Especially during lunch time, if you ran in the school yard, you were put up against the wall. We decided to put everyone up against the wall. 5 minutes after the last student was against the wall, three nuns and the priest came running out of the building. They march all of us in the middle of the yard and took away our safety belts. We had to spend the rest of our lunch time in a class room. Currently, I have 28 years in the Marine Corps, my unit will deployed in less than a month. One year in Irag.
I just want to say that it's great to see all of you in the guest book. I will miss this reunion, If all goes well, I will be at the next one.

My name is Bob Malcolm. I graduated in 1976. I lived on Park ave, just around the corner from school. I can always remember those fire drills we use to have, don't run keep your hands to your sides. I always joke about how mean they were, by todays standards they would be in jail. But I know if they did not teach that way we would be the ones in jail. I do thank them for that. I have so many memories, I would typing all night. Because we were their favorite group to call upon and ask for our assistance(Because we were such nice Catholic boys)I would like to see some of my old class mates

I'm from the Malcolm family on Park Ave. I had 4 brothers: Steve, Jim, Bob & Pat. Steve and I had a lot of memories of St. Stephens and the friends. When he'd call me from his home in Alabama we'd be on the phone for hours talking about friends and school. There are just too many memories to pick just one. One is the nun in 5th grade who just sat at the desk all day and we basically had to teach ourselves; I just can't remember her name. My grandson loves to hear about her; he'd love to have a teacher like that. Will look forward to a reunion in the future.

I graduated from St. Stephen's in 1967. I'm one of the Wrights from Park Avenue. And I have many fond memories of grade school. Especially playing stick ball in the schoolyard with Sister Catherine Ann and the other younger nuns. We had a great time! I also remember nuns putting kids in the desk well when they had had enough of them! We had one nun (I think it was Sister Anna Dolores) who used to make us hold out our hands to get smacked with her ruler. If you tried to remove your hand, you got cracked on the fingertips! And that really hurt. The smart kids learned fast to put your hand way out, it made for a difficult target! Those memories astound my kids, they think I've flipped when I laugh about it now. Looking forward to information about another reunion.
