■ jyrU AT IS A SCHOOL? Is it VV book andpaper?Isitthe building and grounds? Is it the teacher and principal? It is in part all of these, but most important, itis the boys and girls who go to that school. Show me a real boy or girl who does not want his or her school to be the best. Good books, a line building and beautiful grounds mean much to the spirit of a school. We shall have the best of these for our school. Teachers and principal are here to help and guide as they can. You, the pupils, however, carry the real spirit of the school, as each individual accepts his responsibility in setting the standard by which the schcol is judged. The one who determines what your school shall be, day after day, year alter year, is you. Sincerely yours, Bruce L. Zimmerman SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS Dr. Virgil E. Dickson, Superintendent M.

Andrews A HISTORY OF BURBANK HISTORY OF BURBANK ns with Franklin School. In the spring of 1906, Mr. James T. Pres- ton became the head of the Franklin School, then called the San Pablo Avenue School. Before this, as the pi ' oneer school of Berkeley, its name was Ocean View. To help build the school, Patrick Rooney donated an acre out of his land, Captain Bowen gave the lumber, and two public- spirited citizens built the one room school for thirty pupils who came from the county line to the north, to what is now Golden Gate on the South. When Mr. Preston became prin- cipal, the San Pablo Avenue School saw a great change. He encouraged the children to do more and better things, and interested them in dramat- ics. At this time, the name changed to Franklin School. After considerable thought and discussion it was decided that a jun ' ior high school should be built to separate the the older children from the younger group. This was done in 1901. The seventh, eighth and ninth grades of about three hundred pu pils moved into the newly built Bur- bank Junior High School. Since that time the enrollment has grown to nearly one thousand pupils until the original buildings, shops and bunga- lows are inadequate; but the Board of Education has promised many im- provements during the coming year. Our many graduates are proud to say “I ’m from Burbank.” — Grace Sakaguchi

ABOUT U TO OUR SCHOOL T HIS TERM we are dedicating our school yearbook “The Wizard” to Burbank and to its organizations and groups that make our school a happy one It seems very suitable to dedicate this “Wizard” to our school, which is developing better boys and girls who some day may hold impor- tant places in our nations. We first wish to express sincere appreciation to our faculty whom we know as our friends, who do all in their power to make our school life a happy and worthwhile one. In the coming years, we shall look back at our school and remember its faculty. “The Wizard” is dedicated to our school which has given us these words “Honor above Victory” which we shall always remember. — Mary Louise Daus LOOKING FORWARD LANS HAVE been underway to Jl remodel and enlarge Burbank Jun- ior High. The Board of Education, wishing to make use of all available ideas for a modern school plant, asked for suggestions from interested citi- zens. The tentative plans include many of these suggestions. Present plans indicate a larger audi- torium and fheextention of the pre- sent building to the east to provide for a model cafeteria and a larger library. The present library will be part of a group of offices to be used by the counselors. Every one is looking forward to thematerialization of these fine plans. — Eda Rasmussen - c rrR.
