Msgr. Clarke school looking for graduates
Msgr. Matthew F. Clarke School in Wakefield is seeking all alumni dating back to its first eighth-grade graduating class of 1968.
The school is celebrating its 40th anniversary and using the occasion to create an alumni association and reconnect with its grads.
"We don't have a comprehensive alumni list and need to make that a priority," said Principal Paula Bailey. "We have a deep, rich history, and will need to rely on our former students to help us understand and celebrate our past. We urge them, as well as all faculty members who have taught at Msgr. Clarke, to contact us so we can have a conversation with them about their experiences here."
In addition to collecting an oral history, the school would like to borrow photographs of students or school events through the years to scan and compile a photo library of the school's progress.
Grads and former faculty members are requested to contact Therese Hem, the assistant principal, at them@monsignorclarkeschool. org or by calling her at 789-0860.
Founded in 1966, Msgr. Matthew F. Clarke Catholic Regional School is a co-educational elementary school with 450 pupils in grades pre-K to 8.
