Elsik Outgrew Hastings South
Now Future Expansion Needed
ln 1964, state laws were altered stating
that high schools must consist of twelve
grade levels rather than ten. As a result,
high school enrollment increased and in
1964, Alief Junior-Senior High School
Cpresently Alief Middle Schoolb was
opened. In its first year, it housed junior
high school and ninth grade. Each year an
additional grade was added with the first
senior class graduating in 1967.
The original Elsik High School, presently
Hastings South, was opened in 1975 with
a freshman class of 313 students. ln ten
years, Elsik outgrew one building and filled
another to maximum capacity with
almost 3,000 students.
Because Elsik's growth is expected to
continue, construction for new wings on
Elsik's north and west sides is tentatively
scheduled to begin in January, 1986 and
end in the fall of 1987. When the
construction is finished, Elsik is expected
to hold approximately 4,200 students.

, ' . Growth,
And House Bill 72
As Elsik has grown and changed in size and interests, so have the
many activities in which students participate.
Some of Elsik's early clubs such as History Club and Library Club have
disappeared, but new clubs such as Mu Alpha Theta, Wet Paint and
Academic Decathlon have formed.
The first homecoming was celebrated in 1979 when the first senior
class that graduated returned home. New sports and teams such as
soccer, swimming and diving were also added.
Organizations have also grown. The first Revelliers squad consisted
of only 36 members and has 70 members today. The first band had
only 24 members and now has 157 members. Clubs such as NHS and
Student Council have grown from 22 and 23 members to 130 and 166
House Bill 72 raised eligibility standards so that participants in any
extracurricular activities who were failing one class were ineligible.
Although involvement has maintained, participants and sponsors
were given a new challenge with HB 72's passage.
