Comment from: Jeffrey Forman
I was born in December of 1945 and attended the Endicott school from 1950-1955. At that time, it was K-4. For grades 5 and 6, the Endicott students went to the Sarah Greenwood which was a K-6 school. The Endicott school was a wonderful place, and I have many good memories about it. I will never forget when I was in the first grade and the entire school stood on Blue Hill Avenue to watch Dwight Eisenhower ride by in a cadillac convertible as part of his successful campaign for President.
