Glimpses of school life in the class of 1948 (from the 1945 Echo, exactly as published, including the fact that the yearbook called the Class of '48 the Class of '49!): New, eager faces—they were all there bright and early on the morning of August 28. Gathered in small groups, they talked excitedly. The gist of each conversation was their entrance into high school. What will it be like? At last the bell rang. Anxiously these new students began their exploration of the building. What lay before them? Here they were to spend four long years-years filled with work, anticipation, good times, exam jitters, good fellowship, and joyous memories.
A few weeks of the new school life brought about a transition. Unconsciously the “freshies” began to speak the language of the school. Timidity and uncertainty were almost non-existent.
Limited in their activities the “class of '49,” nevertheless, had several successful social functions. Their first party, held on Hallowe'en, revealed their class spirit. Attendance was almost 100 per cent! A skating party, a dance at the Slavish Hall, and an Easter party were numbered among the other activities.
With a successful first year completed, the class of '49 may well look forward to three more years of profit and pleasure within the wall of our high school.
