well now ... i had the great pleasure of attending scarborough from the middle of my fourth grade till the end of sixth when the school closed ... have been searching for a way to find and reconnect with some of my friends and just found this site ... janey isreal whose mother was the librarian first and foremost ... but all the postings i am seeing are from people who actually got to graduate and many of them from before i was even born let alone attended ... i was there for the sadness of coach's passing ... and i have been back to tresspass illegally on the old schools grounds several times ... to wander under the elephant beechs or meander down to the stream where i can as it is now fenced off anywhere near either the upper or lower schools ... to meander in to see the downstairs art rooms and forge my way into the backstage area of the auditorium and down the sloping hallway into the gym and upstairs to the library ... they heave made it impossible to break into the lower school building anymore so can't visit there ... though i used to let myself in every morning since my bus dropped me off at least fifteen minutes before any staff member could do it for me ... what can i say ... i was very good at my b and e and it was just to get warm and dry ... everyone would turn a blind eye to my juvenile life of crime ... and as for people who mention work day ... i used to celebrate earth day before it ever existed by spending many of my recesses picking up litter from the stream that invariably blew in off of route 9 ... what can i say ... i was a born environmentalist ... and it gave me my alone/zen time ... i sincerely hope that you don't remove this site ... who knows ... maybe one day someone will remember me ...>Thanks,

It would be a shame to shut down this page. For those of us who enjoy memories of Scarborough, it's a joy to relive life as we remember it. For most of us it was a great informative, learning, and growth process. I, for one, will be grateful for every experience I had in my four years there. Coach Simon, J. Fulton Main, Mrs. Creighton were some of the very talented and dedicated teachers that helped to shape my life. For that I'm grateful and I'd hate to see this page disappear.
