It has been quite a few yrs since I left DePaul Institute School for the Deaf in Brookline Pa which resided in Pittsburgh.

I am looking for my loooooooooong lost friends from there. I lost touch with my best friend Sarah Sempf until a year ago we met up at Eat N Park when she was visiting Pgh from Rochester Ny. She was going to school there. She now moved to Fresno Cali.

But I wanted to know who all went to Depaul institute. Many were from Wva, Pa, Ny, Ohio, and Md that came to that school. Some left there and went to St. Marys in Ohio to graduate.

Thank you all for reading this.

I know alot only went for few yrs and then left there. I was there for 15 yrs. That is a long time. I really was supposed to graduate from High school in 1996 or 1995 not 1997

Are you talking about Chris Spalla. Joey, the name is familiar but I know too many. lol

I remember Sr Justina, Mr Dave, Mrs Roxanne. I remember the day clearly that my mom dropped me off in Mr Dave's room. I screamed and cried for my mom while he held me to calm me down. He felt so bad for me that day. He spent the whole afternoon with me.

I always ran into him when I worked at Giant Eagles in West Mifflin. He was still married to Mrs Roxanne until the year I quit in 97 they were getting a Divorce.

Here is Sr. Justina with Michelle Halloran.

Here is me in 79 I think in the nursery.

Its got to be interesting.

I need to email Miss Peggy Barry to see if she has any pics too. I think she was there from 82 on. I could be wrong.

Hi! I didn't go to the DePaul school, but I live right next door to you! I'm from Follansbee, WV and I'm in the IDP program at JCC in Steubenville. Have you ever attended any of the silent events there? I haven't yet, but I'm planning to.
