I attended nursery school with Dudley Schoales and later Anne and Sarah became closes friends of mine. Dudley was the oldest, would be about 65-66 if he had been with us today, and Annie the youngest. I left Scarborogh in 5th grade to attend public school in Tarrytown where we lived on an estate called Suncliff, formally belonging to Jay Gould before my family purchased it in the late 30s.

I returned to Scarborough in 1956 attended till my senior year (class of 1960)..
I have a plethora of fine memories of Scarbrough, having attended it for the better part of my complete education with just the 4 years of primary (2) And junior high (2)
absent from Scarborough.

I spent many a night at the Schoales residence being a good friend of Sarahs and Annie as well. I even remember when we had a terrible fire at the school and used the Vanderlip mansion for classes whilst the school was out of comission.

My recollection of those years is quite vivid, impressed on me always is "Manners Maketh Man" and I even have a great photo taken a good 20 years ago at the school under that great motto leading to the auditorium. It sits in a silver frame here amongst my many friends and family- a lasting tribute to my love for Scarbrough and how important all those years were to me.

Love to hear from you and anyone who feels the impact Scarbrough made on our lives.
