Washington School

Posted on 13 September 2019 | 0 Comments

So much development in Dumont has occurred since we graduated, and we probably wouldn't recognize certain areas or be able to find particular buildings as they no longer exist.  As youngsters, we finally came together from our various elementary schools into Washington School.  Some arrived in sixth grade and others in seventh.  Our memories of the place are probably as varied as each of us: Mrs. Sagarian, Mr. Farese, Miss Belpedio, Mrs. Graple, gym class in the attic, rifle range in the attic, high ceilings, cement front yard, assemblies in the attic (a lot went on in that attic).

Summer 2011

Posted on 2 September 2011 | 0 Comments

The summer of 2011 is rapidly drawing to a close, and Mother Nature has certainly delivered us a one-two punch during the course of the season: a startling earthquake on the East Coast; a hurricane along the Eastern Seaboard leaving massive floods in its wake; drought, extreme heat and wild fires in the West and Southwest.  Many of our classmates were/are directly impacted by these recent events and are wished speedy relief from any devastation they may have experienced.
