Thanks for your message. One thing I remember about our homeroom is that we had a very attractive homeroom teacher. I just can't remember her Name.

You surely have a good memory! I've completely forgotten about playing at our prom. Ms. Gianfrante , then senior class adviser and also my English teacher, asked me to play for a few minutes in exchange for prom ticket. My regret is that I can't remember the name of the girl who played the piano with me. Did you know her?

I was the kid who played the violin. Were we in Mr. Lasker's music class together? I retired from the Baltimore Symphony 2 years ago.

I attended Newton High only for one year, my senior year, and didn't get to know many people. If anyone remembers me, please drop me a line.
