Great Post

Our Principal was Miss Kelty and assistant was Mrs O'Neill. Miss Kelty read the 23rd Psalm every assembly day and 6th grade teacher Miss Young read us from the Bible every morning. My how things have changed, Today kids have to worry that the teachers don't make a pass at them

Hi All - I attended P.S. 113 for the 5th grade, Mr. Bates and 6th grade, Mr. West. I can remember our graduation being in the cafeteria and dancing to "I heard it through the grapevine" by Gladys Knight and the Pips (1968). My memories of the school and teachers were good ones: Mrs. Brown (music), Mr. Kessler, Mr. Valinotti, Mr. Nussbaum, and Mr. Sihler (who reminded me of a "Route 66" actor and whom I had a "puppy love" crush on...LOL! Mrs. Brice, who was a Parent-Teacher. I have fond memories of some of my classmates as well: Beverly Torres (tell you sister, Nidya hello for me), Cydni McCrimson, Debra Friend, Ernestine McKay, Patricia Brewer, Septimus Gordon, Dorothy Flourney ("Dot"), Michael Whisenant (my first innocent "friend boy" who bought me my first ring), Shirley Stony, Maria Mojica, and Denise Wiggins. Thank you all for being a part of my life and shaping me to be who I am today. If any of you see this post, please reply. May God continue to bless you all.:)

Oh, about the photo, it would be nice if they include the "portable classrooms" that many of us had the pleasure of being attending for a semester (remember Mr. Bates). We had many play days after lunch in the school yard on the Moffat St. side, where I lost my first paid of blue "cat-eye glasses" that I wish I had now.:)

In 1968, the principal was Mr. Leonard Turk; he reminded me of Abraham Lincoln. It would be great if we all could get class pictures; I wonder if the Board of Education could help; whadya think?!?

I also went to 113. graduated in 1966 and had Mr. Kessler for 6th grade. He had a balding head and yelled a lot. I also had Ms. Fail in the first and second grade. I lived on Cooper Street between Wilson and Knickerbocker. I remember doing the pole ribbon twinning which was for the sixth graders, I thing it was called park fate or something like that. It was done in the street. It was a long time ago, but I still think about it at times. They took the building done to build a senior citizens home. Do you remember Ms.Carter, she was African American?

Are you related to Sandra Farrar, who wore braces and lived on Knickerbocker Ave.? I might have my years wrong, but Sandra and I were in the same class. Also, I remember the pole event as "May Day," does that sound familiar to you?

I attended PS 113 from 1946 to 1952 beginning in the 1st and 2nd with Ms Carr who helped me to learn to read. There were twins in the school one in my class named Donald. I remember the pretty blond in the front seat rght whose name was Jean Murray a very smart 6 year old who motivated me to learn to read as well as she had.
One of the great teachers at PS113 was Ms. Vorbeck who taught us kids to sing in German and took us down to the nursing home on Bushwick Ave to sing German Christmas Carols to the old folks.
I learned later in life that Jackie Gleason had also attended PS 113 before us. He practised his pool skill down on Broadway, which he used in one of his movies. Fats Domino, I think.

Oh by the way, I would like to hear from anyone who had lived near 164 Cooper Street, betw Wilson and Evergreen where I grew up until I was 17 y/o.
I worked as a clerk in Paris Food Deli on the corner with Dave and Jerry Paris owners until 1957.

Carol Shin was one of my neighbors, and Jim MacEntee lived down the street. We all went to PS 113. Robert Britton and Robert Wilcox were classmates. At a birthday party for Robt B, we all played apple dunking and spin the bottle. that was as fast as it got.

Art,

I came to 113 some 7 years after you, but had Mrs Carr as a speech teacher. She was a wonderful lady and teacher.
I lived at 219 Cooper St, and remember the Paris family and neighborhood very well. But it changed drastically. I enjoyed the old neighbohood and my romps to Highland Park.

I remained in the neighborhood till the late sixties, then moved to California, spent seven years in seminary study and became a fulltime pastor. I am semi-retired (due to cancer)living in South Florida.
