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.

Ames High was hit by another rush of foreign students in the fall of 1977. Most of those students planned to attend Ames High for three consecutive years; only a small minority were enrolled at Ames for their senior year alone. The thought of switching schools, towns, and even countries didn’t appeal to the majority of high school seniors. They fòund the idea of leaving family and friends uncomfortable, to say the least. Nancy Rockwell recalled her senior year, “The senior year was the best year of all! We knew it was our last chance as high school friends to really be together, so we took advantage of it.” The idea of visiting another country for a year didn’t LETRANGERS Jane!
