k Clcser led? New school year brings new looks September, 1979, not just the jginning of another school year, but a jw look at how school could begin for pplities. Rather than reporting to guidance mters and picking up schedules on e first day as usual, the entire student xiy assembled in the auditorium and arned of the teachers ' strike. With approximately two-thirds of the achers on strike for over five weeks, ich day proved to be more uncertain an the day before. For this reason any students didn ' t come, and those ho did never knew what was in store r them. When school did return to normal, it meant the same lockers, the same halls, the same rooms, but for some Ripplites it meant viewing them a year wiser and a year more mature. For the freshmen, the year was a new look at what school life could be. Students who took a closer look didn ' t see just desks and chalkboards in rooms, but saw formulas, historical dates — opportunities for learning and knowledge. They looked closer and saw things never seen before. WHACKY WATER WADERS . . . Frolicking in Williams Creek, a group of fun-loving Ripplites find a refreshing way to have a good time on a warm afternoon. H Opening 3

New leadership, bold initiatives It was a time of fear, a time of hope, a time of problems, and a time of dreams as fifteen hundred teachers went on strike while students stayed home. A new principal arrived as the old principal left. The curriculum grew as enrollment dropped. The winds of change blew over Broad Ripple, leaving a new look. The tornado came in the form of a strike that caused chaos to reign. But out of this darkness came several changes, from the school calendar to the way classes were taught. Broad Ripple became the magnet school for Humanities under a new principal, Mr. Donald Glenn. The program was headed by the " Father of Humanities " , Mr. Ralph Bedwell, who introduced students to philosophical debates, folk dances and paintings by Picasso. Ripplites noticed a change in atmosphere as both the city and school changed, significantly but subtly. Indy got a new hockey team and a restored downtown theatre. These c hanges made a difference in Ripplites ' daily lives, but to see that change someone had to take a closer look. " TAKE THAT " . . . Returning a fast ball. Principal Donald Glenn grimaces with determination during a practice game. MODERN HUCK FINN? ... No, just new Vice Principal, Henry Easter, taking a lunch break on White River. 4 Changes
