Question of the Day: Attendees of Newbridge Road School

Weigh in on a daily hot topic.

Recently, I received the following email from an graduate.

"Hello Michael! I am Camille Tucciarone-Tornello from the class '69 at EMHS. I left in 1980 for 'the wilds" of Smithtown. I attended Newbridge Road School. It became apartments in the  late 70's.

I am wondering what happened to the former students. I have been in touch with some through Facebook and Classmates, but where are the others? We lived at 2483 7th Ave off of Newbridge Road. Back then, East Meadow was a very different place."

This leads to today's question of the day? Did you attend Newbridge Road School? If so, what do you remember about it?

I was at NRS frm K through 6th. I know I was there in 1963 because of the JFK assassination. I had Mrs. White in K (whose husband dies that year) ; Miss Combs, mrs Harris with whom I am still in touch, and Mr Ronal Rotella. I was I the EAP class. We did 4th & 5th in one year and 6th the next. Everyone in my family remembers all the songs. Mr Revett was the one who had us doing plays every week. Looking back, it was amazing, though a lot for the teachers--2 plays a year. And a Christmas play AND a 6th grade show! My folks are still I'm EM and I'm back at least annually. Newbridge Road is wide. The businesses change all the time. Glad I found this site. I'll look into the NRS Facebook page. Thanks!

I went to Newbridge in the early 60's. We lived on Argyle Road next to a classmate named Irene Dale Hall. I remember one teacher from the junior high - Mr. Manafla.

On this, the 50th anniversary of JFK's assassination, I remember. Being in Miss Combs' 1st grade class when she tearfully announced the news and sent us all home. I also had Mrs. Turnwall for kindergarten (inspiration for my lavender bedroom!), Miss Schering for 2nd grade, Mrs. Roberts for 3d grade. I remember Mr. Revett, and Mr. Zoller, the librarian with the booming voice. I loved East Meadow and the school, still remember the catchy school song. I lived at 2561 7th Ave from 1962-1965, until my family moved to NJ.
