    I am organizing a Carr school reunion for our class (Kindergarten 1966). I have contacted our two Principals, Mr Gattuso and Mr Gallucci as well as most of our classmates. I’m still trying to locate some of our teachers and photos of our school at the time

  3. I went to Carr school in mid 60’s and would like to know about the reunion.

    Hi Debbie
    We are the NNHS graduating class of 1979 but I’m organizing our Carr school elementary reunion
    So fun
    Maybe you would want to organize one for your class?

  5. I am from the HS graduating class of 1977, but am curious about the 2020 reunion. Did it occur? (Presumably virtual if it did). I was at Carr School from Kindergarten to 6th grade. Many memories, and somewhere all of my class pictures.
