  1. Great school! grades 7 & 8. Martina O’Neil taught science, Anna Collins taught English and scared us all, Mrs. Elwell was brutal and scared the livin’beejezus out of us. Mr. Dwyer taught math – great guy. We all went home for lunch. Before that it housed elementary classes. Mrs. Burns taught 4th, Mrs. Durepo taught 5th. Miss Krekorian (later called Mrs. Bea Stromquist) was nice and had the nicest clothes and long red fingernails. Mr. Holmes was the janitor and Pinky Hilton was truant officer.

  2. I went to the Currier school in the 2nd, 3rd & 4th grades, then my class and everyone I guess, walked over to the Belville school when it opened. Then went back to Currier for the 7th and 8th grades. Miss Krekorian was my 2nd grade teacher but I remember she was married and became Mrs. Welch. She was the first teacher I had a crush on, very pretty. I remember Mrs. Stromquest, my friends and I thought she was smokin’. Mrs. Burns and Mrs Durepo I remember. Mr. Dwyer I didn’t like because he poked his finger in my chest when I didn’t know the times tables… but I sure as heck learned them after that!
    Miss Collins was quite old as I recall (around 1961 or so) and drove a big black Packard. She would have made a good drill instructor. Pinky Hilton the truant officer went everywhere on a bicycle. I heard that he was in a car accident and someone died so he never drove a car again. I went to the Moultonville school in the 1st grade with Mrs. Duffy. Oh the innocent years…

  3. I lived with my aunt and uncle on Low St. and went to 8th grade at Currier in the 1970s. I honestly don't remember many of my teachers due to head trauma later on but I do remember the principal, Mr. Dispensa after being sent to the office so often! He was actually pretty cool considering what a brat I was.
    Since there was no gym, we all walked to NHS for PE. I had a big ol' crush on Donna Adolph but she hated my guts so I acted like I hated her too. And then there was Jeanette Dionne… Wow, thanks for a trip down that road!
