  1. Sister Marie Alicia was my fourth grade teacher in the 1962-1963 school year. I am wondering if she is still living?

  2. Sister Marie Alicia was my third and fourh grade teacher too! I believe it was the same years as your 4th grade. I remember her fondly as a great tetherball player. We used green inkfrom a bottle in real ink pens, got Courtesy Cards if we did something kind, and the nuns had the little clickers they used for things like standing at the end of Mass to leave the church in an orderly manner. I remember them giving us “bonus” questions, one of which was “What is the most beautiful city in the U.S and the answer was Boston because I believe that is where their Mother House was located. Also, the cool breezes that came through the windows in the new school and they had no screens! That was the real Hawaii and glad I got to experience it.
