Weekdays were off-set by a wide variety of weekend activities. Pre-game picnics were a highlight of the football season. Kevin Israel mused, ‘‘After the picnic, everyone was fired-up and ready to get rowdy. Football games just wouldn't have been the same without a pre-game picnic.” Weekends were the part of the week that everyone looked forward to and made plans for. A favorite and common thought among seniors was that by Wednesday they would be " over the hump,” the week would be more than half over. Without the promise of an up- coming weekend many seniors would have been bogged down by the trivia that the five day school-week brought. Weekends were believed to help seniors remain in tip-top physical, emotional, and intellectual condition. The problems and pressures that school and work often produced were forgotten for 48 hours of every week. John Walsh related his feelings, ‘‘Everybody tried to forget their worries for the weekend—we [pe John Bachman Gary Bahr Doug Barnes Jeft Bates Beth Baumel Richard Beck Mark Behrens Beth Bell Tim Bell Melissa Berhow A knew it was for one thing—to have a good time.” Another senior added, ‘‘Weekends were made for those who procrastinated. The things | put off doing during the week had to be done over the weekend; it tended to be a very busy time. " Kevin Israel's belief was that the weekends were part of the seniors’ continuing education program. He said, " Weekends helped us to learn about each other. Our outside-of-school activities taught us things about people we could not have attained through the many books and lectures we found i in high school.” Not all seniors relaxed on weekends, some worked long hours. ‘“‘I take advantage of the time on weekends to work and make extra money, it keeps me out of trouble,” said Steph Lendt. Karen Rod also joked, ‘‘Weekends were made for Michelob, not for me; | worked all the time.” Bev Best Tatjana Bialek Douglas Biggs Carol Birdsall Janet Bliss Seniors 169

With each passing year, students got a taste of more and more responsibility. That ever-growing sense of responsibility brought many new-found freedoms and privileges with it. By the time students reached their senior year, they had learned, for the most part, to use those privileges wisely. As sophomores, students knew little about free time, as time was scheduled for them. If they were not in class, they could have been found in SLC. Juniors were found eating lunch in the cafeteria, but were more likely to be found munching-down in one of the fastfood joints Ames supports. A senior remembers her junior year, ‘‘In the spring, a friend and | would grab a Coke EXPANSION... Wayne Bulkley Ron Bunting Chris Burger Kevin Burkhart and run out to a park to catch a few rays.” Students who didn’t have class certain periods of the day considered those periods free time because they weren't required to schedule study halls those periods. As seniors, students found that open campus eased the strain of their school- oriented world. ۱۲ the pressures that school created became too much to cope with, it took only a few steps to escape those pressures for a period or two. The progressive building of responsibilities ‘‘is essential for growth; for the goal of becoming a well | functioning, happier person,” said counselor Kay Garrett.
