'In the spring of 1952, when the city of New Haven informed them that it would not accept any more freshman-senior students to attend New Haven schools after 1955, plans were started and within six months Amity was built. This great undertaking was begun when the people of Beth- any, Orange, and Woodbridge held town meetings and elected three people from each town to serve on a Temporary Regional School Planning Committee. Due to the untiring efforts of these pioneers, within two months a referendum recommending the ioining of the Regional High School District was held and won by the affirmative vote. The site of Amity, approved by the state, was decided to be the former Charles Peck farm on Newton Road, Woodbridge, com- posed of fifty-four acres. After public hearings a bond issue of 51,800,000 was approved by the referendum. In March, 1954, the plans of the people of Bethany, Orange, and Woodbridge were put into action. Amity was created from pre-cast re-enforced concrete slabs, poured on the ground and lifted into place. Amity has the distinction of being the largest structure in the world that has ever been built by this process and the first east of the Mississippi. The usual building dilemmas were encountered and mastered. By the fall of 1954, Junior High stu- dents entered the newly built Amity with its modern facilities and conveniences. The main building, complete with every up-to-date appliance and advantage, was completed by the fall of 1955. Amity Regional High School, a credit to the townspeople of Bethany, Orange, and Woodbridge, accommodates over 1,000 students, giving them a wide selection of subjects in the academic and commercial courses as well as the advantage of many extra- curricular activities. Having as its principal, Howard D. Brooks, Amity is now making its mark as one of the finest schools in the state of Connecticut. Diane Alpert Mariorie Cohen DEDICATICDIXI We, the Class of 1956, dedicate our Embers to the people of Bethany, Orange, and Woodbridge through whose perseverance the dream of Amity has materialized. May we be duly grateful for this opportunity to be Pioneers.

In those first days, missing our city friends, we kept dream- ing of the last three years. We remembered the year at Troup where many close bonds of friendship began among The students of Bethany, Orange, and Woodbridge. Here we learned what it was to be a high school student-the work and the fun. The next fall, the halls of Hillhouse were opened to us and we became a part of the large Hillhouse family. After those first few baffling days, when upper classmen gave us wrong directions to classes, we found our way around school. With great enthusiasm we ioined clubs and sports activities. Every three weeks we would read about the girl athletes from the country, playing ping-pong, tennis, and basketball. As for the boys, Terry Vidal and Bob Beardmore were cited for their outstanding hockey and baseball. The names of many B.O.W. students including Barbara Angier, Sarah Howell, Martha Hoyt, Jacqueline Luciani, Frances Perrotti, Patricia Serfilippi, John Brobeil, James Dinniman, and Karla Rueckert kept appearing on the honors list. At the end of March, the Sentinel Banquet was held and Barbara Angier, Mary Bishop, Sarah Howell, Jacqueline Luciani, Frances Perrotti, and Mary Snell were ac- cepted as editorial board members, while Grant Bridges, Karla Rueckert, and Kathie Vaughn were appointed to the business board. Pat Serfilippi was a member of the Gleam, while Marianne Endriss and Martha Hoyt were on the Elm Tree staff. As the end of our sophomore year came, we watched with curiosity, the antics of the graduating seniors, and after our first experience with final exams, we left for a much-needed summer vacation. At Hillhouse that fall, we welcomed into our class two new students, Berle Hufford from Colorado, and Honor Peterson from Virginia. Now our boys really went in for sports, engaging notably in hockey, base- ball, soccer, and swimming. The same names appeared on the honor roll, and quite often we saw those students who had made the Sentinel rushing to meet a deadline, while Marianne Endriss and Karla Rueckert were seen carrying posters around the halls, and Martha Hoyt scurried around snapping pictures. The Junior Prom was a wonderful climax to our years at Hillhouse. At the prize assembly we learned that work has its reward, for many students won prizes for both academic and non-academic achievements. Thus, as we recalled in our first days at Amity, the trust we had gained, the friends we had made and the knowledge we had obtained at Hillhouse, we also remembered our solemn determination in the spring of 1955, to enter Amity that fall and make history as we had at Hillhouse. Realizing the job that was before us, we quickly organized ourselves, and within a short time, the Senior class officers were elected. The yearbook staFf was chosen, the Student Council officers elected, and many responsibilities bestowed upon us. The football, hockey, basketball, and baseball teams were started and there was plenty of school spirit to cheer them on. Senior rings were ordered. The school seal, a new name for the newspaper, a name for the yearbook, and a school motto were chosen. Students from Amity participated in the Merit Scholarship Program, and review classes were started for Seniors. Senior rings arrived, and the Snow Ball, the school's first formal dance, was given by the Senior class. College applica- tions were seen everywhere, and, after our college boards, came the Senior Prom and graduation plans. Now at graduation time itself, we know that though we have accomplished much, much remains to be done. Still we may justly feel that, as our forefathers in covered wagons made a path through the wilderness for others to follow, we too have made a beginning, from which it is the privilege and duty of others to proceed.

Janice Loman and Louthea Lazay perience which will prepare them for the Senior are President and Secretary respectively for this High choirs, the Amity Harmonettes was organ- year. 47 STUDENT COUNCIL Even before Amity opened its doors to her tirst classes a Student Council was organized, composed of in-coming seventh, eighth, and ninth graders from the three towns. The first otticers were: President, Keith Thompson, Vice-Presi- dent, Richard Atkins, Secretary, Margaret Langeler, and Treasurer, Anna May Clark. These oFlicers served for i954-55. In September 1955 Amity opened with six classes for the first time. Elections were held and Jacqueline Luciani became President. Elected with her were: Vice-President, Richard Clarey, Corresponding Secretary, Marion Hill, Recording Secretary, Patricia Richter, and Treasurer, Law- rence Cutler. lt has been a busy year for the officers, the more than fifty representatives and the two very capable advisers, Mr. Richard Johnson and Mr. James Dunleavy. First of all, there was the problem of organization. Then, one by one, the many problems bound to present themselves to such a new school were tackled. The purpose of the Student Council is to assist in providing cooperation and unity between the faculty and students in school life and the many extra-curricular activities, to see that there are equal opportunities for all, and to encourage stu- dent responsibility. lt would be impossible to list in detail all of the Council's accomplishments. There have been dances, drives, contests, opening a store, and equipping the hockey team. 48 EMBERS ln the fall of 1956, a yearbook staff was chosen by nomination of the Senior Council and selection by a group of Senior teachers. With Mr. Robert Holm- berg as the Editorial Board, Mr. Fred- erick Fay as Art Board Adviser, and Mrs. Marie Zilli as Business Board Adviser, the beginning of what was to be a first edi- tion of the Embers was started. Before the name Embers had been chosen through competition the staff was at work, receiving estimates of photog- raphers and printers. With selection of both of these, work really began. The rnain difficulty was in being the first staff, with no tradition or former ideas to follow. lt was the staff's responsibility to decide the theme and character of the book and to organize the members of the sophomore, iunior and senior classes who had ioined the yearbook staff. Next came the iob of correcting copy, doing layout and organizing individually writ- ten ideas into a book. Finally in the spring of 1956 this first edition was put on sale. TRIDENT During the school year 1954-55 the AMITY CHATTER was organized under the supervision of Miss Rita lvarson. ln Sep- tember of l955, when the Senior wing was first occupied and Amity became a Junior- Senior high school, the AMITY CHATTER became the TRIDENT. The TRIDENT is pub- lished every three weeks and attempts to keep the students informed on school and town affairs. This has been a very success- ful year under Editor-in-Chief Donald Dixon and his staff which is composed of Assist- ant Editor, Jacqueline Champagne, News Editor, Paul Kosha, Make-up Editor, Stephen Knup, and Business Manager, Elizabeth Eaton. , ,Ki fi? me AMITY SPOTLIGHT For Amity's aspiring writers the AMITY SPOTLIGHT was organized in 1954. ln its first year there was lust one edition.

Her assistants have been Barbara M. Smith, John Bell, and Doris Benner. BAND From the combined orchestra-band originally started in February 1955 the Amity High School Concert and Marching Band was formed. It con- sists of forty-tive members who play for school assemblies and other functions. The band at- tempts to promote a higher degree of apprecia- tion of band music both on the part of the player and the listener. During 1955-56 the Band played at Christmas and Spring concerts, at the State Festival and at an outdoor concert in the park. In May of 1955 the Band played for the Parent- Teacher Association in Bethany. Mr. Phillip D'Agostino is director of the Band and Jeannette Colletti is the Drum Major.

Mr. Phillip D'Agostino is its director. A CAPPELLA CHOIR The Amity singing group of I954-55 was the foundation for the A Cappella Choir which was organized in September I955. This group aims to promote an understanding and appreciation of choral music, to provide enjoyment for its mem- bers and all those interested in music, and to build a good, complete musical background for Amity. There are forty-five members, chosen for their vocal ability and adeptness at reading mu- sic.

AMITY ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION 63 Alba .dl Q., ' ' ' ' FOOTBALL l955, the first year of interscholastic football competition at Amity, will go down in history as the year in which the first touchdown was scored. Hampered by lack of experience, Amity was blanked 0-O in its first game against St. Mary's. However, in the second and final contest, against Cheshire, Robert Beardmore scored a touchdown, tying the score at 6-6. ln the fall of l956, with a short but commendable season behind them, all but three of Coaches John Halpin and Thomas Hughes' Varsity Football Team will return to play a longer season. 64 BASKETBALL ln spite of the fact that the Hrst year of basketball was not a winning season, the team showed a fighting spirit which indicates that in the future, varsity basket- ball will be highly successful. Captained by Roger Koob and Davis Warner, the inexperienced team, consisting mostly of sophomores, made excellent showings at North Haven, Cheshire, and St. Mary's games. The margin of defeat was small, but with added experience, victory over these three rivals is not impossible in the 1956-57 season. An exciting faculty-varsity game was held with the stronger varsity barely edging out the fighting faculty team. 65 HOCKEY 66 After having been encouraged by those who were greatly interested in hockey, the student body, along with followers of the District Hockey League, received Mr. Brooks' positive announcement concerning a varsity team with exuberant approval. The team enthusiastically followed the instruction and experienced training of coach James Dun- leavy. In a round robin type of preview to the regular season, the spirit and enthusiasm of the student body was observed by the New Haven fans, while the team succeeded in winning one match, tying another, and losing closely in two other hard fought bat- tles. After a number of contests, the "never say die" attitude of the team and the en- tire school body was praised by a news- paper which called Amity's arrival on the hockey scene a "shot in the arm" for the league, and cited Amity's zealous and ear- nest spirit as one to be strived for by other area schools. The team proved worthy of the efforts made by coach and principal alike as they upset Cross and iust barely missed a berth on the New England Tournament bound train. BOWLING Although the Bowling Team finished the season in the cellar of the District League they will go down in history as having won the first game in inter- scholastic sports for Amity. Their 3-3 record against Hillhouse kept the Academics from taking the loop crown. Boardman Trade and West Haven were forced to tight hard against the determined Spartans-. Coached by Mr. Charles Dunning and captained by Kenneth Kehrer the team has completed a successful season. SWIMMING Led by Coach John Podorski and co-captains Berle Hufford and William Bilinski, the Spartan swimming team made its initial appearance in league com- petition, and manifested a spirit that should spark the squads of future seasons to victory. Through the efforts of returning backstrokers Edward Rappa, Bradley Marvin, and Richard Atkins, and divers Richard Christenson and Jay Alpert, Amity is hopeful, if not sure, of a winning season next year. 67 FIELD HOCKEY GIRLS' SPORTS Under the supervision ot Mrs. Elizabeth Evans, the Girls' Sports teams meet Tuesdays and Thursdays after school. The seventy girls are divided into several teams in the two sports. The Field Hockey teams played several intramural games in field hockey and soccer.

As the Field Hockey season closed thirty-five girls tried out for basketball. ln a round robin of play, Joanne Angier's team won. During the Play Day, the Spartan All-Star team, captainecl by Annamay Clark, lost to a slightly stronger West Haven club by only one point. A representative team of the basketball groups were beaten by the women's faculty, starring Mrs. Sally-Jane Schwartz, Miss Lois Black and Mrs. Evans.
