The 1981 Stoney Creek Middle School Faculty
This is a picture that Jason Miller sent me that he scanned from
the 1981 Stoney Creek Middle School yearbook.
These are the people who shaped our future.


Aluminum foil crusifixes?
Another Jason Miller scan from the 1981 Stoney Creek Middle School yearbook.
The picture didn't have a caption, so we have no idea what this was about.


Mr. Boshart, Music Class, 1980-81
Mr. Boshart's music class.  I'm not sure who the people are in this picture.
Guesses from the MPHS Yahoo Group are:  Chrissy Bukowski (in front)?,
Valerie Kring (in back)?, Pam Tucci (laughing)?, Vickie Stracka (in back)?
Obviously all of those guesses can't be right, since those guesses
are all not in the same class.


Greg Tucci, Class Bully, often confused with Steve Curlin
Brendan Kane, 12/15/06: "I think we may be waxing a bit romantic on the pods. I agree that they had their charms, but they also had their drawbacks. The main one was that even though Steve Kirlin wasn�t in my 7th grade math class with Spatz, he could still wave fists and mouth threats at me from the back of Lapore�s (?) English class. I still remember walking back to my desk one day and looking across the open pod-space only to see him mouth very slowly and clearly, �you�re dead, pussy,� from the back row of his class. I�m sure open and interactive learning was the point to the pods and that they were not meant to encourage open and interactive bullying, but there you are. With formative experiences like that no wonder I dropped math/physics (per my yearbook quote) as a career path!"

Greg Tucci:  "Ben, you are again confusing me with Steve Kerlin, I was the one in Ms. Laporte's class who would taunt you constantly. I apologize for the psychic pain I must have caused you, and sorry that I derailed your career path. If there is anything I can do to help make amends let me know."

That's right...you don't get to see my 8th grade "Let the awkward years begin" face.  Get over it.  Start your own website.  If you want to see me really young, look at the 6th and 7th grade pics.

Pod III, the 1982 Student Newspaper
Another Jason Miller scan, this one is the cover of the last issue of "Pod",
the Middle School student newspaper.  After June of 1982,
the school was closed.  7th & 8th grade students went to the
high school, and 5th & 6th grade students went to the elementary school.
