... is an occasional welcome rainy day. It's
runners, royalty, readm'. writin'. and 'rithmetic.
not to mention (w) restlors . . .
. . . it's Classrooms, and Cooking,
and looking for Chekhov; it's Champions,
and Camelback Mountain looming behind
the Circle, and even the auditorium Clock
... is algebra in the afternoon, it’s
assemblies and administrators and actors, it’s
Amerson and driver's ed . .

... is drummers at halftime, it’s diners, sampling
French cuisine, it’s dancers and draftsmen and debaters,
and donors to a worthy cause . . .
It’s American His-
tory. it's Account-
ing class, and Ana-
tomy (both in the
classroom and on
the sidewalk), it's
Athletes. It's all of
these things, plus at
least one thing
more: you. So. turn

cover once more
the Arcadia you

The top 5° . of the class of 1980 is an elite group. Their excellent grade point
average attests to their dedication to scholarship, and their willingness to give
whatever it takes to stay on top. Grades tell only a small part of the story,
however, because the activities and interests of these people extend far beyond
the academic classrooms in which they earned their membership to this group.
Here can be found the musicians, the dancers, the thespians. Here are members
of football, track and baseball teams. Here are the class leaders, the members ol
service and honor organizations, the volunteers in civic projects, the church
workers. In short, these are the active people, the doers not the watchers.

Each year the senior class selects a number of their peers
as Olympian candidates. Electing a Mr. and Miss Olympian has
been an Arcadia tradition over the past twenty years. It is a
great honor to be nominated for Mr. or Miss Olympian, for it
is a sign of respect and appreciation from one’s class for a four
year contribution to Arcadia High School. The entire School
takes part in the actual election. This year six outstanding
students were nominated, four of whom are shown here with
a brief summary of their dedication to Arcadia for the past four
