Dave Morace - 1987 - (bad e-mail 2003.03.27) - Southern California - 1997.12.31
Comments: I graduated from Division Ave. H.S. in 1987. I see that there are unfortunately there are, as of yet, no other class of 1987 graduates on your page. I would be honored to be the first entry for 1987. My sister also graduated from DAHS. She is already on your list (class of 1984). I think this page is a great idea. My sister and I are both living in California now and do not see any of the people that we graduated with. So to read a page about our old high school, and see a list of some of our fellow classmates who have visited her was really neat! My reunion should have been sometime this past year. I never heard from anyone about it, but being 3,000 miles away I don't think I would have been able to make it anyway.

Favorite DAHS memories: the entire experience
Comments: My days of Division Avenue High School have been the greatest of my life. I thoroughly enjoyed them for what they were - a time to learn, to mature and to develop. Through it all, I feel as if I am a better person because I graduated from Division. I would like to take this time to thank all of the teachers, faculty and administrators for making me the person I am today. Although I didn't realize it at the time, I am forever in gratitude for all that they have done for me.

Comments: This is a great idea. I can't believe it's been 32 years. Has anyone kept in touch with any of the teachers like Mr. Mezzapesa (I'm sure I didn't spell it right). Hope everyone is doing well. Maybe we could figure out a way to put together our bios for each to see.

Comments: This is a fantastic page! I left Levittown in 1975, but I always consider Levittown my hometown. I will always remember the fun days of hanging out at "The Green" (North Village) and the vacant lot behind the church on Wolcott Rd. Oh, how could I forget all the nights at the Skating Rink when we told our parents we were going skating, but really just hung out outside checking out the action! I am now an 8th grade English teacher and have two wonderful girls - 14 and 8. I have been married for 15 years to a great guy. But I still miss those days hanging out in Levittown. Someone look me up and let's reminisce! Send me info about 1978 reunion - really wanna make it! Long live DAHS!!

Comments: As the first member of my class, 1998, to sign this on-line yearbook, I have to take a moment to let all of you "older folks" know what's going on at 120 Division Ave. As some of you may know, Division is experiencing a Renaissance. Our test scores are up drastically, our extra-curriculars are expanding monthly, and our sports teams are, of course, still fighting with the endless Division spirit steeped in tradition. Put that in your pipe and smoke it, MacArthur. An unprecedented number of students from our class are pursuing careers in education, which says a lot for the quality of teachers at Division. I can say, on behalf of everyone else, that no matter how much trouble we may have caused, we have great memories of our high school. As recent Alumni Chairman, I would really love to see a millenium celebration, surrounding the fortieth reunion of my mother's class (Kathleen O'Brien-Sabo), the first class, 1960. I look forward to hearing from a lot of you!

Comments: Trina, Great job on this page. Brought back a lot of memories. When you watch "Wonder Years", don't you feel like you grew up with Kevin, Paul and Winnie. Looking back it seems you couldn't have invented a better place to grow up. It had it all. Like to hear from any of my classmates from Pintail, Northside or Division Avenue Reform School.

Favorite DAHS memories: Every time we walked into Mr. Pahel's Physics class was an adventure, depending on what Bill Mitchell and Co. did the period before. Seeing that big bod with a "Kick Me" sign and a tail on his butt was pretty funny. We let him teach the whole class that way. Deegan putting a dead bird in my baseball cleats before practice comes to mind, can't imagine why. Ms. DESIMONE!!! Guten Tag, Fraulein! Don Filipelli's Tie dye T's. Pinball marathons. 4th of Julys in Cairo.
Comments: Props to you, Trina. Like most of the other people who've left town have alluded to, it's difficult explaining to my (3) kids how much there was to do in Levittown. How many friends we had. How much beer we... no, wait, scratch that. Anyway, all the best to all the Dragons, from the Left Coast.

Ken Yarmosh - 1976 - - North Babylon / Lake Grove, NY - 1998.12.06
Favorite DAHS memories: Wish I had some - spent too much time outside school to remember much inside.
Comments: This is a wonderful website. Levittown was a great place to grow up. I lived on Gun Lane with my 5 sisters and 3 brothers. You would have found me playing sports or at the library (there were concerts across the way in the park). I left Levittown when I was 18 - but a part of me will always be there. I still drive by Gun Lane every now and then and recall how quickly time has run its course. Wisdom Lane, Saint Bernard's, Memorial H.S. and Division H.S. were places where I attended school at one time or another. McLaren Field on Loring Rd. also holds great memories. If anyone remembers the Yarmosh's, email me and I'll pass any information on to my brothers and sisters. Thanks!
