    38 kids in the class, teachers today would panic! Boys outnumbered by 25 to 13, lucky them! My class at Holy Family where we went when we moved to Queens had 48 students.

      Hi, My name was Kathy Goodey, and Juliet Romano was a distant cousin of mine, and we were in the same grade at St. Ann”s school from Kindergarten. Your name is not familiar to me. You mention Ellenor: and I think she was the girl with the family that owned Celentos deli on Second Ave.. I think her relative was Millie Cellento, who was hefty, and worked the deli. My Mother’s family name was Capolina, and also in our family was Santorelli. I also was close friends with MaryAnn Mesina. PLEASE REPLY BACK.. I got this web site from a women who was helping me with health ins., and she grew up on 104th st.. I can’t believe I found you.
