Special Thanks to Bill Voytek for sharing this photo.

(From Bill: This class was taught by Sister Armelda (unfortunately not pictured) who was, I believe, the oldest Nun to teach at St John's and  a member of the order of The School Sisters of Notre Dame, whose Mother house is still located in Wilton, CT.  A couple things to note are the size of the class (today's teachers enjoy a class size of less than half of what used to be taught) and the furnishings in the room with the old ink well desks and chalk boards.)
