Reflecting Back to '82
The bell had sounded and the classes' shouts rang out in joyous
tones. That was the beginning of the summer of '82 and the end
of the '81-'82 school year.
After school many students went OUT. Some headed for the
nearest fast food chain, while others went out shopping at
Metrocenter. The next day most students slept in, getting that
much needed rest from studying for the final exams.
The freshmen moved up one year and away from the teasing
they has so very much received just a few short months before.
The juniors also moved up one spot - they became seniors. "It
was just a different summer because I was going to become a
senior," said Patti Palmer, senior.
Some students swam, watched television Cmostly soap operasb,
and laughed their summer away while others worked at their
jobs. "l worked most of the summer, but when I had some free
time I played basketball and swam," Bob LaLoggia, junior, stated.
Whether the student was a freshman, sophomore, or junior,
they just could not seem to get Cortez out of their mind, and for
the incoming freshmen, they couldn't get high school into their
minds. "l went to Disneyland and Universal Studios, and I looked
forward to going to Cortez," Gordon Mankins, freshman, exclaim-
ed. Little did they know about the famous frosh initiations!
Some of the Cortesians were on out-of-state trips. The vacations
ranged from Washington to Florida. "I went to California to surf
and then when I came back I played basketball with Bart and
Jeff " saidjunior, Greg Martin.
Some preferred to stay home and use the Arizona facilities for
having fun. "l went to Big Surf and the lake last summer," is how,
sophomore, Kim Crawford remembers her summer of 1982.
As the summer wore on, people began to get bored and
amazingly enough started looking forward for school to start.
They started to care less and less about the soap operas on the
boob tube, and the swimming pool had become an everyday
item. Friends were missed and even the everyday homework rut
sounded good. Well, finally the first day of school, August 81, 1982
came about, which concluded the Summer of 1982!

began selling soda pop again at lunch

because of Arizona State laws.
The biggest addition to the school,
however, was the construction of the long
awaited auditorium. The district spent
about S1,600,000.00 on our auditorium.
They obtained the money from a District

pleted in the spring and became the
center of many school activities.
