Moriches Annex 1952 & 1956
& Wm Floyd School Mr. McFarland's 5th Grade Class 1956-57
Updated August 2009
These first two photos came my way from Harold "Red" Thompson. They were filed away some time ago and rediscovered as I was finishing up the Knapp manuscript. Again if you see yourself in them with no name or anyone can help fill in the blanks ....
LOT OF BLANKS TO FILL IN HERE : This could be either a first or more likely a second grade class depending on what month in 1952 it was taken. If it was in the fall of 52, then there should be a lot of future Class of '63. That might be Bert Garcia in the front row left and Gary Kubala front row center in between Nancy & Louise ??? Harold Thompson is third from left in the rear And it looks like Joe Abruntila in sweater, two to the right of Harold

AND THIS ONE CAME TO ME JULY, 2009 FROM LUCY FUCHS (Class of '65)
IT IS OF MRS. TRIBBLE'S THIRD GRADE AM CLASS ( split sessions) OF WHICH I WAS A PROUD MEMBER
BUT TYPICAL PHANTOM THAT I WOULD BECOME IN MY LATER YEARS AT FLOYD , I WASN'T ANYWHERE IN THE SCHOOL THE DAY THIS PHOTO WAS TAKEN EITHER
WHEN I SAW THE DATE ON THE BLACKBOARD, I REMEMBERED WHY I WASN'T THERE. I WAS OUT THAT WHOLE WEEK, THE REASON I KNOW IS MY MOM WAS LISTENING TO RADIO STATION WPAC IN PATCHOGUE IN FEB 56 WHEN THE HUGE MILLS BUILDING ( Three Stories Tall & Half a Block Long) THAT WAS LOCATED ON THE SOUTH EAST CORNER OF MAIN STREET & SOUTH OCEAN AVE WENT UP IN SMOKE & THE RADIO STATION HAD TO BAIL OUT.
THAT SAID, HERE ARE THE KIDS I LEFT BEHIND IN JUNE OF '56 WHEN MRS TRIBBLE SKIPPED ME INTO THE 5th GRADE & I LEFT THE ANNEX FOR THE BIG HOUSE
In the group I recognize : Janet Serine, Donna Castellano, Christine Lindner, Howie Bullock, Mary Ellen Reichert, Carol Calabria, Billy Foster, Richard Lanni, Joyce Chesner, Fern Cohen, Diane Volgrath, Peggy Landau, Peter Musumecci, Mac Titmus, One of the Galowski twins, Linda Alfinito, Lee Potts, Danny Knowles, Chris Sabolis, Ed Ruge, and sitting pretty right in front almost center Miss Lucy Fuchs herself. There are several other faces I remember like the kid with the bow tie far right Joe Esposito? or the guy between Lee Potts & Ed Ruge but the names are escaping me right now. I'm sure I'll be adding in more names soon.
