Holy Trinity School 1950's
« on: January 10, 2009, 05:02:46 AM »
Does anyone remember any of the names of the Sisters of Charity who taught at HTS throughout the 1950's.
I remember Sister Rita...1st grade; Sister Elizabeth...2nd grade (who was transferred somewhere else mid- 50's, but don't remember where she went or who replaced her); Sister Joseph...3rd grade; and a woman who was not a nun who taught 4th grade; Sister Vincent 5th?; Sister ( Agnes?) 6th?; Sister Claire (mother superior?)7th?;Sister Juliana 8th? Anyone out there with a clearer memory or access to actual data such as an old year book? Has anyone else on the board attended during that period, or remember someone else who did?

I went in the 70's-80's and remember Sister Catherine Rose and Sister Rita.

I also remember Sister Emily who I saw at the Holy Trinity Carnival last year.  She's picked me out of a crowd from 30 feet away (not having seen me for 20 years) and said "now which Dib are you?".

Sister Anne Marie and St. Mary Hart were two of my favorites.

Mrs. Frasca taught 4th grade when I was there - my last year in the old building. I don't remember Sr. Claire teaching - though I'm sure she did - I just recall her being principal.

There were 2 Sr. Margarets - fat and skinny - who I remember from my first year in the new HTS, but I'm not sure if they were in the old building. They taught 6th and 7th grade.

There are some other HTS threads you might find interesting on this site, so work that search box.

I stated going to First Communion preparation classes for public school students in early 1955, in the old building. We moved back to Hackensack in the middle of my first grade and there was no room so I went to Fairmount until the end of third grade. They had catechism class in the old school every Sunday after 10 o'clock Mass. When I started fourth grade (1957-58 school year) the brand new Holy Trinity grammar school opened, and the high school students continued to use the old building until the end of that school year. I used to go to the high school basketball games, held in the gym in the grammar school (though the grammar school had no gym classes!) to watch my upstairs neighbor, Kevin McKegney play. My fourth grade teacher that year was a Mrs. Benson, but she didn't finish the school year (no one knew why) and she was replaced by a Mrs. Fiori. Someone mentioned a Sister Liboria. I think she was the fifth grade teacher across the hall from us. My teacher sent me to her because I had turned during class and WHISPERED something to a classmate. (The teacher, apparently, was incapable of handling such a major, life-threatening incident herself!) I waited respectfully for Sister to finish her conversation and she glared at me, saying: "What are you standing there looking at me sad-eyed for? What do you want, a poke in the eye?" She told me and the other juvenile delinquent to write "obedience" 50 times. No, I'm not one of those disaffected Catholics who is still bitter. I had three very pleasant years at St. Paul's in Ramsey from sixth through eighth grade (1959-1962) and they also had Sisters of Charity, but those sisters were caring and kind.
