    I attended Immaculate Conception School from 1968-1972. In first grade I had Sister Alice Richard….she was an older woman (probably in her 50s, but looked older to me) and quite strict. I remember her spanking us if we were out of line. In second grade I had Ms. Hilton who married that year and became Mrs. Pritchard (I forget her first name)…she was very nice and let us bring in records to listen to. In third grade I had Miss Judy Englehardt….she was very nice also. In fourth grade I had Mr. Roderick McNeil who was a nice guy. I also remember this nun used to come every year (I don’t know what her title was, but she was part of the music program and visited us during music class (which was taught by Eileen Marshall). This nun used to have a round harmonica and she used to blow into it to get a certain tune, then she used to ask us a question done in song like “Where is the window”? Then we would have to answer her back in song “Over there”! Thar was so weird….I never questioned it as a kid, but as I got older and thought back about it, it never made any sense to me….lol. I left Immaculate after fourth grade as they had just opened the new R.A. Nock Middle School and I begged my parents to let me go there. Mom wasn’t too happy, but she granted my wish.

    Oh boy do I remember ‘king of the snowbank’ during the winter months. Back then us girls were not allowed to wear pants – and I have scars on my knees from the ice on those banks. GOOD TIMES!
    Principal – Sister Rosemarie, then Sister Marie John
    Asst. principal – Mrs. Furlong, later in life I used to visit with her after she retired. Believe it or not she was a very sweet lady who had a most wonderful rose garden and knew how to brew a good cup of tea.
    First grade – Sister Barbara
    Second grade – Sister Mary, she is still teaching second grade and I got to have breakfast with her when I visited during Yankee Homecoming 2013 – she is still as sweet and awesome as ever
    Third grade – Mrs. Laplante (sp?)
    Fourth grade – Mr. McNeil
    Fifth grade – Sister Joan, I later heard she left the church all together. I wish her the best.
    Sixth grade – Ms. Soucy, all the boys had a crush on her
    Seventh grade – Mrs. Fancescone, she had the cool corvette.
    Eighth grade – Mr. Cuff
    Sister Elizabeth was the Librarian and another sweet soul.
    I remember Sister Ruth as well.

    Oh wow Witchy542, I totally forgot about the Cunnignhams! During my time at the school (1975-81) they also were still involved in the cafeteria. I remember helping with the Annual Bean Supper they had at the school.

    I have very fond memories about attending that school and the people there…
