Went to Kinsington Park in "59 for 5th gd. before moving to hialeah. I remember a Richard Dunaway, playing vollyball, sticking our hands in a red ants nest to prove how stupid we were, and 1 time i rode my bike down the "HILL" across the street from the school into the blind cornor at the end of the block with a safety patrol. It was a blind cornor because of the wall blocking a view of what ever was comin' around the cornor. Well, you guessed it- someone or something was comin' around the cornor and i think we colided. I guess that was my 1st concussion. Wish i would have had my leather football helmit on! Really, don't remember, know i got a ride home in somebodies car.

It looks like the same Mrs. Curry that was the Principal at Blue Lakes Elem. in the early 60s.

I was in this class...been so long that I can't even recognize myself to find me in this picture. I believe that is Claudia Jones(saw her at Miami High's 40th reunion-2006) in the last row, 2nd from the left and it looks like Deanna Huminick in front of her. I also remember Ted Crownover who donored the picture...just don't know where he is sitting. Thanks Teddy!

I went to Kensignton Park some time in the early 90's. I really enjoyed being a part of the school.

I went to Kensington Park from 1956-1962. I reconize the girl in the front row to the right with the blonde hair. I believe it was Lindy Lou Berman. Does anyone know? I did a tap dance number with her and Carlene Lincoln in the school talent show in l961. The girl in the back on the right is not Ethel Davies. She was in my classs, a year behind. Richard, I do remember you. How are you? If any one knows me, please email me at lhtzta@aol.com Would love to keep in touch with old school friends. Linda High Thompson

When I saw this, I wondered if that was indeed the Mrs. Curry who was our principal at Sunset Park when it opened. I was there the very first day, watched it go up, played on the site when it was under construction - AMAZING!!!

The first thing I thought about seeing this picture were the little desks and ducking (tucking ourselves) face down beneath them with our hands over our heads during air raid drills. Lordy we were small!

Kensington was a "boomer" school built for the Grapeland Heights neighborhood between the Orange Bowl and airport. We were the first to live in our Mackel Homes in a nice urban setting. Most of our parents were displaced WWll vets. This was innocent Miami, most of us Anglo, just before the arrival of so many escaping the terror of Fidel. I was in the classroom next door when this picture was taken. No tropical Miami schools were air conditioned. That’s Ethyl Davies in the back-right. Richard Reinhardt

If I'm not mistaken, Mrs. Curry went on to become the Principal and Sunset Park Elementary School in Kendall when it opened in the 1971 (I believe that's the correct year). I went to that school the first year it opened. Does anyone know if this is the same Mrs. Curry? Sure does look like her!

WHAT A COINCIDENCE. MRS. CURRY WAS MY 5TH AND 6TH GRADE TEACHER AT KENSINGTON PARK IN 1955-6.
