School Reviews

Dear Sirs,I was a student at St.Anthony''s ( ! from1961--1963) I don''t remember my 2ndgrade teachers name,she was a nun very very strict.If you thought you were going to be a clown in her class,she would invite to the cloakroom,and introduce you to her wooden ruler right across the knuckles.One thing she did was taught us respect.We would have choral practice at the convent which was located to the rear of the school,across the street.I believe my 3rd grade teacher was a MRS.WOLFE.She wasn''t near as strict as my 2ndgrade teacher, but if you you forced her to she shore new how to handle a paddle!Is your football team still called the ''''MUSTANGS'''' My dad worked for Mobil Oil. We lived in a small house on the corner of Fillmore St. I was confirmed in 62.I was so proud my sponsor was the Commissioner,a close friend of the family. Many Thanx, I wish you continued success!
