Anyone remember when we used to have the parish festivals? I remember playing that color board game w/friends. The guy spun the wheel & called out a color & hopefully, your marker was on that color.They had the swings ride, too.

We were the only Catholic School that didn't wear uniforms. We paid 'book rental' tho.We used to have to cover them. We used old brown grocery bags.

There were no uniforms at St. Patrick's School. There was no tuition also until just before they consolidated with St. Joseph's. The kids at St. Joe's had to wear uniforms - St. Pat's did not.

Graduated from St. Pat's in 1960. Played basketball with Pete LaClair as the coach. I recall that Father Esposito was a decent basketball player as well, always at practices. Enjoyed the Boy's Club a couple blocks away, after classes. I have fond memories. Some of the teachers I remeber: Sister Clara, principal and 8th grade., Miss Wurz, 4th grade, Sister Dominica 5th grade ?, Sister Anthony 3rd grade.

Graduated St. Pat's 1949. Remember the WWII air raid drills; played marching music as we left school for the day; having to peel potatoes for the nuns when disciplined;bringing canned goods for the nuns to eat;serving mass was an honor; Mrs Kirkland;Mike rode his horse to school; warm milk delivered outside the classroom door.St. James Theresa set me straight . Most nuns really cared-others practiced corporal punishment with gusto!
Oneida County Hist. Soc estimates $7,000 to erect a historical sign on St. Pat's vacant lot. Any interest in chipping in?

I remember the milk deliveries. Sister or someone she picked would take the BORDEN milk cartons over to the window sill to keep cold. Didn't work too well come spring/summer.

Remember when the 'gold dome bank' had school banking? Teacher would collect our bank $$$.

yes, remember the gold dome bank. Also, recall "savings stamps". if you collected enough of them you could cash them in for a "war bond".how about collecting baseball cards, Wings airplane cards, etc. Marbles in the muddy spring...and the opportunity to sound the siren on the fire engine once a year!!
we had those long poles to open the windows at the top.

The crossing guard was Mrs. Hill and my favorite teacher was St. Anthony Daniels. I see Mrs. Hill once in a great while and she remembers me. I went there k-8 and graduated in 1963 just before they closed the school. What was the name of the youg priest at that time. All the girls went crazy over him. Italian name. There should be a class reunion some day. It would be nice to have one
Fr Esposito. He used to come to the classrooms & we'd always hope he'd keep telling us his stories so we wouldn't have to go back to school work.

There was one nun who was very mean. She was tall w/glasses. I remember 2/3 grades were mixed into 1 room. She taught both. She terrified me.
