Class Memories From 1970

When I went to Canarsie High School, SING was the activity you joined. It was a great competion. All the schools in the area all had SING. Every year each grade wrote their own play with original words to popular songs. It was a competion amongst all the grades. There was a hugh choir dressed in themed costumes. Each year we even produced a record. I graduated in 1970 and remember one year the choir was dressed as toy soldiers, one year as Aladdin. Unfortunately I can't remember what the choir was dressed as the other two years. I was on the play committee. It was great fun. A few years ago, I noticed a movie had been made called "SING". It was based on the same premise. It even listed Canarsie High School as a contributing school.

Vicky, senior sing at CHS 1970 was Atlantis and the choir was dressed in futuristic costumes. The premises was that they where under the sea and they worked to rise to the surface. This ended in the culmination of a golden sunrise that would rise up and light up behind the choir. Some of the lights dimmed and the remaining lights spelled out SENIORS. I built the sun, it was a wiring nightmare, but loads of fun. I also buit all of the stage sets for the other yearly Sings, including the 12'wooden soldiers that would salute as key players would enter.

I loved Sing. I always had my own solo which made me feel great!! I was a ham back then. Jack, you remember so much about it, I can't believe it.

Mr. Carl Lefton was one of the finest men I have had the pleasure to know. His creative genius combined with his artistic talent remain unsurpassed. Carl was a teacher born to teach; not only my mentor but a best friend to me and many others at the same time. He had a profound impact on me as a student and remains one of the few people we meet on life’s road that sets the stage for success. I was proud to know him and he will remain fondly in my memory for all time.
