To all R-UTN Members:  I am sending you the results of a query that was sent to all staff that ever worked in the Middleville Road school, going all the way back to the 1960s. All of the emails and phone calls received have been compiled, and thanks to my friend Bill Ingui, retired Social Studies teacher, the results are presented in an easy-to-read spreadsheet.
