It was a happy time and sad time for the tightknit group of third grade teachers as they bid farewell to a very dear friend and colleague. After thirty nine years on the Alvarado faculty, Chris Moriuchi leaves to retire to a life of ease and tennis. At her retirement party she shared pictures of her classes for the entire 39 years. She also had a binder of staff pictures for the entire 39 years. It was an impressive collection of memories. It's amazing to think of all the students who have learned from Chris including Derek McNamara, Assistant Superintendent of Personnel for New Haven Unified School district. Mr. McNamara was a student in Chris's fourth grade class.

Congratulations on your retirement. Thanks for all years of sharing your extensive knowledge with the staff and the students.
