Who are the V.l,K.'s? Why, they are the twenty-three fu-
ture circus trainers, racemen, mommies, rocket ship men, fire-
men, members of the navy, lawyers, Sunday School teachers,
and airplane men-otherwise known as the "Very Important
Mrs. Reynolds, their teacher, with Mrs. Barbara Timm as
an assistant from the Nursery, feels that the whole class has
the characteristic of being very vigorous. This is a great under-
statement. Their main reasons for liking Berkeley Hall are the
merry-go-round and the bicycles. Next in line come the toy
helicopters, the sandpile, painting, the doll house, books,
making stuff, and "cutting out things."
Scholastically they are really doing well, feeling that it
is interesting to learn. They are using the Carden system in
learning howto write, doing number work, and reading readi-
ness. They will be reading, too, before the end of the year,
Some of the V.l.K.'s can even tell time.
One of the most important things in the Kindergarten is
the Golden Rule Chart. When a child is loving and good he
earns a gold star, if he forgets, he gets a red star which
reminds him to stop and think of the Golden Rule. .This chart
is apparently effective, for one little V.l.K. was heard saying,
"You should not be mean or hit anybody or else you will
get a red star."
V.l.K.'s are generally consenting to conditions at Berkeley
Hall, and they love the food, especially peanut butter and
ielly sandwiches and hot dogs. But they do have suggestions
for improvement as to the colors of the school buildings. The
most popular ideas are white, pink, multi-colored, orange,
yellow and green.
The V.I.K.'s are definitely distinctive people, alon't you

HARD WORK, LEARNING, FUN
Dave Marshall and Gale Ricketts
Under the direction of Mrs. Swan the First
Graders have much to accomplish in a school
They have many subiects, including read-
ing, arithmetic, language, spelling, and writ-
ing, both cursive writing and printing.
Mrs. Swan is stressing reading this year
more than other subiects. She hopes to in-
still a love for reading in all of the students
by having them read three Carden books and
two or three classics. Reading at home is
ln a recent survey of students, four out
of five stated that they preferred cursive
writing to any other subject. Next was recess,
where they said they enioyed playing in the
sandbox, roller skating, and playing the
Girl From U.N.C.L.E. Another favorite was

sists of class officers who are elected every
A large bear rug was brought to class
this year. After discussing it they all drew
pictures of what was supposed to be the
bear rug. Some show great talent, and they
are all interesting. The class saw more bears
when they went to the Los Angeles Zoo.
All in all these eighteen First Graders clay
is filled with hard work, learning, and fun.
