Back in the late 1940ís and into the 1950ís , PS 116 had a very disciplined principal named May M. OíHara. She was the governing authority of the school. Most of the students respected and feared having to enter her office. About 4 or 5 teachers were her personal friends. They were Miss Casey, Miss Sweeney, Miss Farrell, Miss Fyffe, and I think Miss OíMera. They just donít make teachers and principals like these anymore. They had total control of the students . There weren't any drug problems, any severe fights or injuries to students in PS 116. They will always be remembered for their outstanding commitment to the education and well-being to all the PS 116 students.
