Althoff often shares together in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The Opening School Mass extends a warm welcome back for both students and faculty. Also, both the students and faculty gather together for a Thanksgiving mass. Many special occasions center around the mass, including the Freshman — Mother Mass early in the year, the Senior — Parents Mass in May, and the new Class Masses held throughout the year. Most holidays and important events are celebrated this way. Always the Althoff family participates together to share this important aspect of school life. The chorus and band members provide beautiful music, while students and faculty members do the readings, offertory, and assisting. By celebrating and rejoicing together, the Althoff community succeeds in bringing themselves closer to each other and, more importantly, to the Lord. Sr. Olivia distributes the Eucharist to Beth. The Althoff family celebrates together. Students attentively listen to the homily. Students partake of the Body of Christ. 13 Crusaders Show Spirit The Homecoming Week was an ex¬ citing time in which the whole school participated. It started on Tuesday with a " dress-up " day and an all-school mass. Wednesday was " Farmer Day, " and the students came to school look¬ ing like they had just come out of the fields. On Thursday, the school showed its support for the Cardinals by coming dressed in everything red, ranging from hats to shoes. Friday was class-distinc¬ tion day, which is probably one of the favorites. It was a great week and a good way to achieve the school spirit needed to win the Homecoming game.

PARLEZ-VOUS FRANCAIS? 44 Latin IV members pose during class. Latin III officers, Pat Magill, Kathy Schmieder, John Lehman, and Tony Roth, smile for the camera. Club Unites Classes The Latin Club establishes many goals and strives to obtain them. The main objective is to develop the person¬ al qualities essential for success in life. They find the best way to reach these goals is to divide into small groups and work on a more closely related pro¬ gram. Usually class size determines the num¬ ber of separate Latin clubs. Latin I con¬ sists of two individual units which study the meanings of words and sentence tenses. Latin II and III arouse the interest of students and encourage them to continue their studies in Latin. Latin IV brings Latin into the modern world and relates it to the songs, books, and mov¬ ies of today. The Latin Club also raises money throughout the year to financial¬ ly assist an incoming Latin student. Latin I officers, Nikki Head, Robby Schmieder, and Vicki Schwab, gather for a picture. 45 Spanish Club Rejuvenated After a one year lapse, Mrs. Jones and Mrs. Obernuefemann rejuvenated the Spanish Club. The club is designed to extend the cultural awareness of the students. They invited an exchange stu¬ dent and a travel agent to speak to them. They also increased student cul¬ tural-awareness by planning activities, such as their Christmas party, with Spanish food, music, and games. In ad¬ dition, they sold carnations for Valen¬ tine ' s Day and took part in the Foreign Language Week. The Spanish Club or¬ ganized a volleyball marathon.

Golf Swings Into Action This year ' s golfers started the season with a bang. Their opening matches, led by Heinz Rudolf, Randy Rachell, and Mike Lucarelli, produced a record of 4 and 2. However, the struggle for victo¬ ries toward the end of the season just missed the team ' s goal.

The boys held a record of 7-7, and the girls had a winning record of 8-4. Brett Kessler set new school records in both the triple jump and the 400 meter race, qualifying for state in the 400. Under the direction of three coaches, runners could special¬ ize in long distance, middle-distance, or sprints.

For the sixth year in a row they emerged as " Charleston Cheerleading Champions ' The girls hosted a one-day competition in Althoff ' s gym and invited squads from all over the area. More than their individual competition, the girls cheered for both the basketball team and the football team. Their sup¬ port was much needed and appreciated by both the players and the coaches.

At Camp, they received a second place trophy for their home rou¬ tine and a Superior trophy for their Overall Performance throughout the week. The Squad showed their true col¬ ors at State Qualifying Competitions when they walked away with the first place trophies and blue ribbons. Then it was off to State Pom-Pon Competition where they showed everyone who was Number 1. That day the Squad walked away with two Superior trophies and two blue ribbons which is a very difficult accomplishment. The trophies and rib¬ bons prove that this was an outstanding Squad. The Squad shows the crowd what they like about the routine " What I Like About You. " The Pom-Pon girls execute their difficult moves with ease. They are reaching for the stars. Everyone smiles pretty for the camera. It ' s the end of another perfect routine. 102 Row 1: Collie Van Buren, Mindy Miller, Debi Harris, Kim Bergkoetter, Allison Smith, Michelle Edwards, Kiki Bird.

At the Forefront. . . of the academic sphere are Alth- off ' s dedicated instructors. 107 Veteran Educator Guides School To many students, Mr. John O ' Brien is that man who stands in the hallways during passing periods to catch them out of dress code or heading in the wrong direction. Despite popular opinion, this does not occupy all of his time. Mr. O ' Brien is the head administrator of our school, and, as the saying goes, " the buck stops here. " Mr. O ' Brien graduated from Central Catholic High School in 1945, and planned to go on to study at St. Louis University. He was drafted, however, and spent eleven months and seventeen days in the Navy, even though the war had ended. He returned, received his Bachelor ' s degree in History from S.L.U., and was drafted once again, this time to Korea as an infantryman only because he hadn ' t served a full twelve months in WWII. After two years, he once again returned home, and was soon offered a position as teacher coach at Assumption. " It never entered my mind to teach, " he muses today, " I probably would have gone on to law school. " Poor man, you say? Apparently, not so. He stayed on at Assumption for twenty years, he and George Martz being the only lay teachers in the school. In 1973 he came to Althoff to succeed Fr. Ray Orlet as principal. Mr. John O ' Brien is truly a veteran, as a soldier, a coach, a teacher, an educator, and an administrator. His experience, his compassion for youth, and his concern for our futures, should prove vital to the open-mindedness needed to face the challenges of today ' s constantly changing " new generation. " Mr. O ' Brien sets high ideals. Mr. John O ' Brien — Principal Timmy Z. was just playing Dana Brown, Mr. O ' Brien. I told him that you wanted him to clean up the puddle on your desk — or H-O-H as we say in organic chemistry. Mr. O ' Brien dedicates his career to quality Catholic education. 108 Althoff ' s computer system assists Fr. Daly with his work. The principal and assistant principal take time to confer. Fr. Daly Plots Courses Coordinating the schedules of over 900 students, Fr. Daly, the Assistant Principal, assumes an awesome job. As¬ sisted by his dependable disk-drive, Fa¬ ther toils endlessly to meet the needs of the entire student body. This is not an easy job, simply because of the amount of changes that have to be made after the school year begins. In addition, Fr. Daly ' s work schedule does not allow him even the summer vacation that is af¬ forded the rest of the school, for that is when the major portion of his work is done. Fr. Richard Daly, Assistant Principal if WWA.VVVv i«i tSBMWs 109 Deans Preside Over Students Mr. Dan Fizer as Dean of Boys has the job of presiding over the dress code, dis¬ cipline, and conduct of the boys. Along with these various duties, he also teach¬ es in the Math Department. Sr. Margaret Sullivan, Dean of Girls, is responsible for presiding over and disci¬ plining the girls at Althoff. Like Mr. Fizer, she also teaches in the Math Depart¬ ment. In fact, she is the head of the Math Department. Mr. Fizer organizes fund raisers for Althoff. Mr. Fizer provides Althoff with over twenty years of experience. UO Members listen to a new proposal. School Board Recommends The Althoff School Board is com¬ pri sed of nine members appointed by the Bishop. These volunteers meet once a month (usually the last Wednesday of each month) to review and recommend school financial operations, policies, and general items of interest and con¬ cern for the well being of the communi¬ ty. These meetings are open to the pub¬ lic. Front row: Mrs. Donna Rapp, Mr Ray Stephens, President, Mrs. Nancy Grandcolas, and Mr. Norm Theismann, Vice-President. Back row: Mr. Stan Syzdek, Mr. Joseph Gundlach, Mr. Jack Week, Mr. Joseph Orlet, and Rev. Bernard Voss. School Board is open to visitors and their ideas. Fr. Daly stresses a point. Ill Students Strive to Serve Fr. Loren Kapper The church strives to continue the mission of Jesus, namely to bring about God ' s Kingdom. Religious Education is essential to that mission seeking to make a person ' s faith a truly living reali¬ ty, conscious and active, through the light of instruction. It is a form of the ministry of the Word. It leads to and flows from the ministry of worship, and it supports, inherently, a ministry of ser¬ vice. Fr. Gary celebrates Holy Eucharist. 112 Ms. Helen Clark, Department Head Christian Lifestyles poses some tough questions. Fr. Gary Gummersheimer English Speaks For Itself " O.K., Scottie, my jokes aren ' t THAT bad! " Betty Henry, Dept. Head Joyce Terveer Richard Thevel Sr. Helena Leach Barb Cadell Gary Cholet Sr. Catherine Burke, photo unavailable From the " hellfire and brimstone " writings of Cotton Mather to the classic works of William Shakespeare, the Eng¬ lish Department offers it all. Besides the basic English studies such as grammar, the short story, poetry, creative writing, the term paper, American Literature and English Literature, Althoff also of¬ fers remedial and advanced classes, courses in communication skills, and ex- tra-curriculars such as the CRUSADER newspaper and the literary publication, " Words in the Wind. " The teachers in the English Department strive to in¬ crease understanding, communication, and awareness of the great ideas that have been written down through the ages and still influence us today. 113 Reason and Logic " Rain " The Math Department offers a wide variety of courses to challenge the stu¬ dent at every level of math skill. Be¬ cause two years of math are required for graduation, most students complete at least Algebra and Geometry, al¬ though many students continue on to Trigonometry. Students who have four years of high school math under their belts are eligible to take college calculus while earning college credits at many universities. Also available are basic programming courses in computers. The computers are also utilized in the basic math classes.

This course is taught by Mr. Emilio Bassy, a new member of the Althoff science staff. Another new addition was a Physical Science class offered to incoming fresh¬ men who score well on the placement test. The department also uses an Ap¬ ple computer for some of the classes and, as always, honors classes are of¬ fered for most science subjects. Mr. McGuire ' s biology lecture mesmerizes Angie. Margot and Michelle study the scientific approach. Mrs. Suzanne Lowry Mr. James Gasaway 115 Cultural Flair Acquired Students studying cultures unite during Foreign Language Week. Chris Bolesta The Foreign Language Department develops the students ' language skills in speaking, writing, and relating to other people in our world. These teachers make the students aware of other cul¬ tures as well as the effects these foreign lifestyles have on the world. Many of the teachers can relate to these cultures very well because of past lives, studies, or travels in other countries. Overall, the objective of this department is to teach the students to treat others in a Chris¬ tian manner, no matter what language they speak. Sr. Pancratia Schmitt Zaida Jones, Department Head Mary Oberneuffermann Karen Foeller Jane Price 116 Jim Igel, Department Head Gary Schuline Rose Mansfield History Comes Alive Alright class, when was the Black Hawk War fought? Does anyone know anything about the fall of Rome? I ' ll bet you don ' t know what the Reagan doc¬ trine is? Well, students at Althoff can discover these and the answers to many more intriguing questions concerning the past, present, and future of human¬ kind, once they have completed any number of courses offered by the social studies department. Freshmen cover the history of the world in one short year. Talk about a quick overview! Also required is one year of U.S. History, which covers the U.S. and Illinois consti¬ tutions. A student may also take U.S. Government, Modern Western Civiliza¬ tion, Current World Affairs, Illinois Histo¬ ry, and American Indians, or Behavioral Science. These courses and more bring the student to a greater and deeper un¬ derstanding of the human condition and the role she or he plays in society. Bill Orlet 117 Business Mastered The purpose of the business depart¬ ment is to provide a variety of courses to enable students to meet both person¬ al and vocational goals. An increasing number of students are finding both Typing and Accounting valuable in their career plans. In Typing I students use electronic equipment to prepare themselves for an office position or to acquaint them¬ selves with the electronic touch of a computer keyboard. Many students elect to enroll in Word Processing, Of¬ fice Procedures, or advanced Typing class following Typing I. Accounting I and II are available to help familiarize students with basic ter¬ minology and applications. Most Ju¬ niors in Accounting I find it beneficial to enroll in Accounting II. In this class stu¬ dents have the opportunity to apply their accounting skills to computer ap¬ plications. Kay Buescher Jeana Allen completes a program. Barbara Doedli not pictured. What a great pair of hands! Students put computer knowledge to good use. 118 Bruce Elser Sister Olivia Forster Counselors Help Students Learn To Make Choices High school is a stepping stone from adolescence to adulthood. This transition is accompanied by major decisions, and sometimes, major problems. The guidance counselors attempt to offer different alternatives to help in decision-making. They are available for counseling throughout the school day and regularly schedule meetings with students during the year. Guidance deals with such problems as difficulties with grades, substance abuse, lack of communication skills, poor peer and family relationships, and misconduct. They assist in career planning, college placement, scholarship opportunities, and financial aid. Representatives from col¬ leges and universities from all over the country visit Althoff to talk with students about their programs and to encourage students who are interested in attending their schools. The Guidance Department supports many activities such as Student Council, the Lifesavers, National Merit Scholarship, National Youth Salute, Hugh O ' Brian Youth Foundation, and other various scholarships and awards that are available. The guidance counselors work as an integral part of student life and perform a vital function for the welfare of the student body. Sister Olivia discusses college board deadlines. 119 Musicianship Developed The Music Department made Althoff history this year. The combined efforts of the Swing Choir, Concert Band, and Mixed Chorus produced a score that placed Althoff in the top 10 schools in the state. This was the result of out¬ standing performances at the state Solo and Ensemble Contest held at Belleville West, and State Organizational Contest held at O ' Fallon High School. This honor was a fitting tribute to Mrs. Susan Bruenger, dedicated teacher and friend who is spending her last year at Althoff. Susan Bruenger — Department Head What ' s the word for today? Art Mediums Discovered The Art Department, under the guid¬ ance of Mr. Andy Kinsella, continues to offer underclassmen a strong founda¬ tion in the area of design, which is essen¬ tial for all art forms. Older students ex¬ plore specific mediums with stress on creative approach. The Art Department feels that an education in art can bene¬ fit a person throughout his or her life¬ time. Mr. Kinsella announced his official art awards at the end of the year: Artists of the Year — Paul Davis and Jilanne Klaus; and Photographers of the Year — Cassie Schaefer and Brian Goedel- man.

Judy Klauck, Department Head Home Skills Developed The Home Economics Department, under the supervision of Judy Klauck, prepares both males and females for home life activities. These classes such as Foods, Clothing, Child Development and Home Furnishings provide the stu¬ dents with a good basis upon which to build an efficient home. One of the var¬ ious outside activities is the rearing of a child for a day at school. Mr. Mank and students display a model. Varied Skills Offered Mr. Mank teaches the Mechanical Drawing classes as well as the Psycholo¬ gy and Mental Health classes. These courses give the students a basic back¬ ground for such professional fields as architecture, psychology, and engineer¬ ing. Furthermore, these courses provide a student with a well-rounded educa¬ tion, even if the student is not planning to enter these fields. Todd shows the fine art of drawing. Larry Mank, Department Head Let ' s Get Physical Mrs. Mary Kloess The physical education department has a tough job, the job of making fit¬ ness an enjoyable experience. To achieve this excitement, the depart¬ ment offers a wide variety of activities, both on campus as well as off campus. Some examples of the on campus ac¬ tivities are badminton, basketball, track, gymnastics, softball, and many others. These activities differ every fourth week. On the other hand, the off campus activities, like bowling, racquet- ball, and swimming are offered only as semester courses. Mr. Jack Gagen Mr. Glenn Schott 122 Quest For Knowledge Satisfied The library contains thousands of volumes filled with enough information to accommodate just about any student ' s needs. Although hundreds of students use it simply for pleasure reading, the library proves its usefulness when hoardes of English classes descend to ravish its resources.

The Most Congenial were those who have constantly shown friendliness to classmates and others. The Most Talented were those who excelled in acting and singing abilities. The Most Likely to Succeed were those who showed excellent academic achieve¬ ment and promise. Class Clowns brightened many dull moments with laughter. Those who showed outstanding athletic ability were voted Most Athletic. The future Picassos and Rembrandts were picked as the Most Artistic. Those who always seemed to support the school and were seen at many activities were chosen to have the Most School Spirit. Most Popular were those whom almost every senior liked. Those who seemed to have stepped out of a fashion magazine were voted as Best Dressed. And, last but not least, the most dashing and beautiful seniors were voted Best Looking. 134 Senior moderator Mrs. Zaida Jones works on the senior float with Angie Christ and Karen Becker. Seniors Show Spirit Some seniors were absorbed in athlet¬ ics. Some were dra wn to drama and mu¬ sic. Some lead the field in academic pur¬ suits. Many held down jobs. All were worried about choosing a college or ca¬ reer. And some combined all of the above! They formed lasting friendships during their four years at Althoff that saw them through the good times and the bad. They worked and played to¬ gether in various clubs and teams, but even separate interests cannot change the fact that they stood together as the Class of ' 86.
