It gives us ac- curate and recent information concerning the world around us, not to mention precise ac- counts of “real-life” events seen through the eyes of “real” people. This form of media has been broadened to such a range of topics that magazines can be found to cover almost every subject imaginable, from Antique Collecting to National Geographic; from an in-depth interview with a Vietnam vet- eran to the latest fads in cloth- ing and crazy styles in hairdos. Magazines can also be looked at as a story book of many essays, biographies, and memoirs. The following pages are our own form of today’s great me- dia. In them we hope that you will find many of the char- acteristics that have made America’s favorite magazines what they are today. Our in- tent is that you will treasure our photo journalistic interpre- tation of this school year and the next time you are asked what your favorite magazine is you will answer Traces " 88.

Introduction 5 The In Place to Be 6 Introduction The " In” event of September was the first school pep rally. All the important people were there for their senior group picture, after which they were introduced to the Fall sports people. Here Julie Perkins, Pam Tenero and Sue Smolenski show their pearly whites for the camera, while Christina Inthavong smiles with a cheery “hello” as her name is called for the volleyball team. Of course, all of her friends applauded loudly. Standing in the sidelines John Bromage cheers for his teammates, but Chip LafTorgue and Steve Poulin cannot indulge in so sedate an activity. Instead they try a balancing act worthy of circus billing. The class of ' 88 certainly showed its spirit. Denim Rules the Day! Not exactly Vogue material, but certainly top notch for the cafeteria Julie Denigris and Heidi Vanderheiden model the uniform of the day, big shirts worn over denim. (By the way, why are they standing on a table during study hall?) One of this year’s most explosive fashion styles is denim. From jeans to mini skirts, shirts and even shoes, everything is made with denim. Steve Harding displays his denim Jacket which is emblazoned with the rock group, U2. 8 Introduction A smile with style. Shawn Landry parades through the halls in the latest in shirts, den- ims and of course a single gold chain. It may not be stylish but we cannot help but wonder why Laurie Dursza is wearing her suspenders backwards. She must have gotten up on the wrong side of the bed. The flower just doesn’t go. Nancy Keegan has set her own fashion statement. Wearing a Hawaiian shirt with matching Hawaiian shoes, she shows her uniqueness. Snakes worn as necklaces aren’t normally seen in Fermi Halls, but Nancy’s style demands it. Introduction 9 -Star Tracks Courting, Togetherness, F riendships Relationships, friendships, couples: A person with whom to talk and with whom to attend functions, with whom to laugh and with whom to cry was a vital part of senior year. Many had that special someone with whom to grow from ad- olescence to adulthood. Sue Kearney and Dave Blanchfield could be seen together in the halls after Human Physiology — while Stacey O’Palick and De nni s Cleeson met for lunch every day. 10 Introduction After a summer of fun at the beach Pal Martin and Karin Anderson still find enjoyment in the halls be- tween classes. Shirley Noah and Jeff Chapman share a special time at the Pep Rally in mid-September. Both were looking forward to a senior year filled with celebra- tions and laughter. Enjoying the warmth of a late summer sun, Randy White and Brenda Liquore stand arm in arm in the lounge area off Red Floor. Lunch break gives many a chance to share as well as compare mornings. On their way to the next class, Debbie Donahue and Todd WTiitford hurry through the halls of Fermi. Introduction 1 1 1 2 Introduction Picks oQi] People Missy Vailiancourt and Barb Morgan are practicing for careers in modeling. Then again, some people always look good. With her classmates giving their encouragement, Theresa Buss does her best at break dancing. What leadership! Tom between fast food or chicken patty, Dan Phelps torments over his decision. Look! She has bunny ears! Here is Diane Stoner at a pep-rally. Who’s the dummy? “Look at that guy,” says Camille Swift as Tam- my Golden goes into shock, which only goes to show that what is one man’s (or woman’s) pleasure is another’s poison. Introduction 13 CHATTER Grinning from ear to ear, Laura Bachard talks to a friend by her locker. It may have been interesting being a fly on this locker. Lee Pillitteri is really clutching this note- book as she supports herself on a friend’s locker. Announcing the date of yearbook candids resulted in some extra careful dressing. Sue Giaccone’s garb was es- pecially impressive. Heidi Vanderheiden and Joy Yiznitsky have finally made it to the top — “Yeah, We’re Seniors! " Nancy Chabot and Laurie McNamara carefully study their latest study hall “note.” It might be fun to lean over their shoulder. “Who me?” Tammy Proulx is not quite sure of the answer to that question. While Cathy Polek smiles in the hope that she will not be called on next. 14 Introduction 1 VOLUME 17 SENIOR Allison Gendreau: conscien- tious worker, polite, attentive 1984 WE GOT John Nieroda: wise cracker, tunny, and sarcastic THE PbIKl LOOK 1988 Natalie Moore: giggly, talka- tive, Fermi Cheerleader Bill Lee: well-known, the voice of 4th period, spirited, cute Amy Allard: easily bored, talkative Vinnie Catanzaro: quiet, an- gel-faced, studious Jack Mead: verbose, athletic, rowdy Mary Radswiecz: extremely quiet, friendly, agreeable Pat Martin: friendly, caring, good listener Lisa Golenski: pert, meticu- lous, prim and proper Seniors 1 .5 SENIORS LETTERS Officers of the Class of 1988: Theresa Buss, President: Laurie Durza, Vice President; Sharon Butterworth; Treasurer; Sue Giaconne, Director of Activities; and Lisa Kasperan, Secretary, (absent) Theresa Buss enthusiastically describes the activities planned for senior year. As class president, Theresa was always en- ergetic and innovative, winning by a landslide the senior su- perlative category, " Most Spirited. " Dear Classmates, Each of us will look back on our years at Fermi in a different way. We’ve shared so much, and yet we’ve had the time to become our own individual. Each of us will leave a part of ourselves here — whether it be in the classrooms, on the athletic field, or in the works we have done. As individuals we will strive to achieve the goals we have set for ourselves. The completion of these goals will account for the suc- cess in our lives. It is important to believe in our- selves and to work for what we want in life. Believing in ourselves is the key to success. If we work hard, there will be definite rewards in life. The size of these rewards will not matter as much as knowing that what we strived for has been accom- plished. This accomplishment is a success. Success is what we make of it. Success is different to each individual. Everyone of us will achieve success in one form or another. We can all do it! We’ve shown it to others through our years here at Fermi. I would like to wish each of you the best in life. Take care of yourself. Good Luck! Sincerely, Theresa Buss PRESIDENT 1 () S ni()rs EXCHANGE SENIORS THE HUNT WAS ON Some seniors found the search for post high school education to be demanding 45 MISSING, SEN IOR PRIVILEGE?

Bridgette Smith and Valerie Van Der Straten are off to their next class. It did not take Valerie long to learn her way around Fermi. A Different View Once lgain Enrico Fermi played host to exchange students from all comers of the globe. Each brought with them a life of experiences in another culture. Hopefully each will return en- riched by their stay in Enfield. From Japan came Toshiyuki Mochizuki. Changing classes each day was a unique thing for him. In Japan, the teachers get the exercise while students remain in one class. Cafeterias and lockers were also new items. His opinion of the United States, " ... I like the American girls and the American parties.” From Belgium, Valerie Van Der Straten arrived. Valerie says that she is having a lot of fun in America. She has made many friends and loves to go to parties. Valerie says that America is similar to Belgium, except many more teenagers in America work. But Valerie has taken on the American custom of shopping and feels money is an absolute necessity. Visiting the United States from Finland is Tuula Kesti. She feels that one of the main differences between America and Finland is the fact “American girls are always, always, always, talking!” “Not only that, but Americans in gen- eral are always talking.” Tuula also mentioned that she has spent more money in America for entertainment and clothes than she has any- where else. Other foreign exchange students include Burkhard Meyerhoff from Germany, Maryn Floris from Holland, and Junko Habuto from Japan. Isabella M. Basile Bonnie R. Bastille Lara Becker Mark Badeau Linda L.

W ere were four seniors going with cans of paint on Oct. 2nd? What exactly is cow tipping? Has anyone ever really gone cow tipping? What exactly does Isa Basile want to do with Patrick Swayze’s body? How did Bill Lee get that stereo in his locker? WTiere did Karin Anderson and Pat Martin disappear to after the junior-senior social? Is this the first time we’ve seen Neil Boeder in a skirt? Why were fifty seniors absent first period on September 23? What was Steven Pearey doing at Cap- tain DW’s on October 3? What are the dixie cups in Nurses Aid for? What did Judy Freed ask Chris Val- lencourt? How many cans of hairspray does Brenda Liquori really use? Are those mugs from the magazine drive really milkshake mugs? What exactly is “chef s choice?” Did Darcy Hunt break something again? Why is that our class theme? Who wrote “it’s not casual”? Did Julie Denigris wreck her car again?

Laffargue Shawn Landry What would your life be like with no ear, no job, no parents, and no drinking age? That’s how senior Andy Walsh’s summer was, as an exehange student to Spain. Why would anyone want to do that? “Well,” he said, “a representative from an exchange organization came to visit our school last year. It sounded hke a lot of fun, so I found out more and suddenly I was there.” One big difference he noticed about the kids over there is that they couldn’t drive. “We walked everywhere, they had cars in Spain, they just can’t drive until they are 18.” Another difference was the drinking age. “We would go out almost every night to the bars and drink, play pool, and talk. It was a lot of fun. I hope I can go back.” (Editors Note: Obviously Andy was ready for Spain. Our question was, was Spain ready for Andy?)

Relaxing and discussing her busy day is Tracy Thibodeau shown here w th a friend from Enfield High. Those who feel the modern high school students prime interests are dating, friends, and clothes should have spent a Thursday afternoon or a Saturday morn- ing at the Greater Enfield ARC. Here, in programs essentially staffed by Fermi High School volunteers, handicapped youngsters of various ages, met for ac- tivities and experiences with their peers. Among the most active volunteers were Fermi seniors Barbara Morgan, Tra- cy Thibodeau, Heidi Vander- heiden, Joy Yiznitsky and Andy Walsh. They bowled, painted plaster figures, ran cookouts, went on hayrides, cooked meals and washed dishes all for the fun of it. And yes, they come back for more. Why?

Nash IN THE NEWS Seniors Succumb Senioritis: the strange malady of senior year Balancing on ihe shoulder of their classmates, seniors, live it up for an afternoon. With the arrival of twelfth grade, the final leg of years of school, a strange disorder spread through the ranks of the senior class. Symptoms varied slightly from person to person, but the majority of those infected felt its initial onslaught as a kind of lassitude between the hours of eight and two. Ac- companying this was a twist in humor, “Did I bomb that test . . . ha. ha.” and “Oops! I totally forgot we even had a paper due . . .” Inability to concentrate, though limited usu- ally to academic areas, caused many to watch helplessly as their grades slowly slid downward. Finally bursts of wild abandon similar to those experienced in elementary school became frequent and visible in pub- lic. Those in the know could easily diagnose the cause: “Senioritis” had struck again. After years of anticipation, the end was close. It needed to be savored and cel- ebrated by activities other than classes, tests, notes and books. It was difficult to feel good writing a “critical” or “comprehensive” pa- per, and impossible to concentrate when, in a few months, a whole lifetime would change. W ith senior events fast approaching, taking exams seriously drained every ounce of effort. Thankfully, like spring fever, senioritis usually retreated under pressure. School and other obligations it entailed managed to cap- ture enough of the limelight to make grad- uation a reality. Senior 41 Robert C. Orr Elizabeth Ortiz Keith M.

Paluel The Death of a Tradition It started as a wild rumor whicli blos- somed into a fact. Announcement was proclaimed over the loud speakers and posted on all bulletin boards. In essence, the “smoking area was dead.” It shuddered its last pangs, alone and unaided over Christmas Vacation. When the New Year dawned, it had ceased to exist. ith it was buried years of tradition: no longer was there a need to run through the halls and out the doors during passing, no longer was there a rush to beat the bell. Old friends need not meet for a drag. There was no need to freeze or get rain soaked. The challenge of being first in the cafeteria line lost all meaning. Now there was nowhere to go after lunch. The area once teeming with life became strangely silent and unused. Confidences shared over a smoke ceased to exist. A tradition died, a habit was broken. The smoking area was dead.

College Hunt The college hunt was something many of us had to face in the Fall of our Senior year. We found it a laborious process that forced us to consider what we liked to do and what we were able to do and project these into the future. We also had to consider courses we have taken and the grades we have gotten in those classes. In summary, we had to view our potential and our limits. And this was only the beginning. Now came the hunt for the right college. Factors such as distance from home, size, atid re- quirements for entry were used to screen school after school. Finally there was cost, financial aid, and the process of completing FAF ' s and ap- plying for C(iSL. Then applications were sent and we waited. The college hunt — an exercise in self- discovery, a challenge at organization and finally a le.sson in patience. W ' e, the seniors of 1988 gladly leave this Job to the next cla.ss.

Senior Privilege When asked whal happened to senior privilege, Kim Gears is as slupified as the rest of us. Whal happened to senior privilege? Where did it go? This mueh anlieipated event, dreamed of for years as the alarm rang at 6 a.m.. seemed to have been un- officially cut from senior year. Since fresh- man year students pictured themselves strol- ling in after first period and out after sixth. Alas, these dreams failed to materialize. Careful analysis revealed that the student handbook still contained a subtopic called “senior privilege.” In fact some seniors . . . very few . . . but some, even etijoyed the shortened day while the rest of us watched their comings and goings with envy. The problem slemtried from something called “required credits " coupled with, of all things, the inanimate computer. P ven an elementary school pupil could see the dif- ference between five and three-quarters and seven was one and one quarter; one atid one quarter periods of unseheduh ' d classes. To be allowed senior privilege this had to be allocated by. of all things, a computer into period one or period seven of a cla.ss sched- ule. That put each senior ' s ehanees of ob- taining “senior privilege” at slightly better odds than winning the lottery. Alas! Senior privilege, for those of us who missed it, is still around. Hut like a summer day. it si- lently pa.ssed by most of us. Senior 47 SENIOR EVENT Nicole M. Savage Brian J. Scaletta Kimberly J. Schneider Deborah Schulle Michael S. Shaw April C.

Smilowicz Superior Seniors The graduating class of 1988, has roved, once again, its spirit and rength. This year, the senior class lised more than $35,000 in the annual agazine drive. The stud ents exceeded eir goal of $25,000. They not only oke the thermometer, but also broke ly record set by the previous classes, xtra prizes had to be ordered to reward " opie for their efforts; two hundred enty-two out of three hundred thirty- four members of the class participated. Perhaps it was the prizes that inspired them to sell, sell, sell — the tootsies, the mascots, the “milkshake” mugs, and the blankets. Maybe the inspiration was the class spirit all felt in participating, the spirit and drive for which seniors are famous. The mere drive of the class to be the best, was perhaps, the main in- spiration. The success of the magazine drive, may, in the future be matched, but it will never be the same. Robert J.

Many organizations around the country have been set up to help alleviate this tragedy. Inspired by a personal incident, Tracy Bender started a program here at Fermi in March of 1987 that she hoped would be beneficial to the students of our community. The program is a chapter of SADD — Students Against Drunk Driving. This program was initially set up to help make teenagers aware of the dangers of drinking and driving and to promote alcohol awareness. Due to the enthusiasm of the organization’s executive board, the SADD chapter is flourishing. Headed by Tracy Bender, the staff includes Kim Mangiaflco as Vice President, Laura Hoinoski acting as Director of Activities, Tracy DeGrande as Treasurer, and Laura Boudreau as Secretary. The group’s goals include presenting programs on alcohol awareness at the jr. high schools, and promoting the “Contract For Life.” According to Tracy, “the contract is an agreement between parents and their children to help avoid dangerous situations.” SADD’s main objective is to have 5.5% of the student body sign the contract. As Tracy put it, “It’s a safeguard against death.” Senior 53 Laura Hoinoski, Director of Activities for SADD, has also been active in other volunteer programs including “Saferides.” Robert A.

Fit for a King “McDaniel Chicken Pattie,” “Beef Stroga- noff,” “Com Dogs,” “Chefs Surprise.” Do these infamous delicacies sound familiar? Every school day, for the past four years, we have been fortunate enough to reward our deserving palates with an Enrico Fermi school lunch. We, the class of 1988, look back with fond mem- ories of our exper iences with cafeteria food, and would like to share some of those thoughts. Each day, we came to school and paid one dollar to indulge in “Fermi’s finest.” For us to use the word finest it must be defined, using some examples. For instance, we think that the Fer mi cafeteria serves the “finest” “cyck five for growing children.” We knov the cooks are just being modest whe they Ccdl it Beef Stroganoff. | We also admire the “fine” job dont i to make sure that those hamburger j cire put on the buns, so they have to b ; peeled off in order to squirt on the “finest” watery ketchup this class ha ever tasted.

This way we havi room for the “finest” dry cake, pasti cookies, and whatever else tempts ou taste buds. Because of the preparation taken t plan our well balanced diet, we, Un senior class cannot let it go to waste We, therefore bequeath our meal plai to the incoming students so that the may enjoy as we did, “Fermi’ Finest.” All kidding aside, the class of 1981 greatly appreciated the dedication am imagination the cafeteria staff pu forth to make our lunches memorable We thank them from the bottom of ou stomachs.

At least once a month, and more fre- quently towards the end of the year, members of the class of ’88 headed out of their houses with books in hand. But they weren’t off to school — not yet. They were off to Abdow’s, for a leisurely breakfast with friends, or perhaps to miss that quiz first period. It was at Abdow’s that students en- joyed the opportunity to take a break from their hectic, everyday routine. After this, they would pay their checks, pick up their books, forge their notes, and head off to school. The seniors did this with smiles on their faces, happy and full, knowing that they were able to break a few rules, and get away with it. The fork isn’t as hard as the school’s cake, but i that’s no reason for Andy Walsh to eat it. 60 Seniors Although she has finished eating.

Mr. Culler addressed the student body, which applauded and then applaud- ed some more. In a recent interview, Mr. Cutler graciously answered questions about his job as principal. Hou visible do you intend to be with the students? I plan to be extremely visible with students and faculty alike. Part of this plan includes: not being in the office all day, actively participating with the Lamplighters, athletic events, as well as DECA and FBLA. I want students to come and see me, my door is always open. How have the students at Fermi changed? The kids are showing more class spirit this year. Hopefully, it will continue. In a pendulum, we are heading more toward the educational side. There is no more room to fool around. The students are buckling down and getting an education. What role do you think should be imposed upon students to better educate them? That depends on the student. It’s their de- cision. They must know there is work involved in getting an education. Students must have the desire to want to learn. Do you have a philosophy in your role as principal? I feel the principal should be the leader of a building: academically, socially and emotion- ally. I want to move everyone to be all that they can be. I would like to do this through positive relationships. Is there anything at Fermi you would like to change? I would like to add rather than change. Right now I am in the process of trying to get more display boards. 1 want teachers, administrators and students working together rather than splin- ter groups. 1 want to bring things back together. Friendship is the key factor. We need to change societies attitude through positive influence. I personally would like students to think ed- ucation is fun.

The job of a high .school varsity sports coach is a hectic and demanding position. Few realize the hours put into the job both during and after school. The coaches deep dedication and effort was reflected in a recent questionaire com- pleted by Miss Carbone, Mr. Joly and Mr. Mayo. Outstanding players were viewed by Miss Carbone as those who always exhibit 1 10% “. . . both on and off the court.” While Mr. Mayo says, “one must combine physical talent with great dedication and a desire to excel.” When each of the coaches were asked if their respective teams had worked up to their po- tential each of them agreed on the fact that their team effort had far surpassed their record. The sportsmanship of the players was exhibited when they “were humble in victory and graceful in defeat.” Coach Mayo found that players give him the hardest time when the team is not having suc- cess. At these times they question why they work so hard in practice yet get little feedback in games. But despite this they continue to practice hard. When asked how they got their players mo- tiviated Miss Carbone and Mr. Joly remarked that they achieved motivation by setting goals Wilh her favorite players, one on eacli hand, Mihs Carbone shows off for the camera. She is everyone ' s favorite volleybaii roach and they are decidedly her greatest fans. for their teams. “If there is .something to strive for the kids will work harder to achieve it.” Mr. Mayo, however, said that motivation is not just a “fiery pre-game pep talk,” but instead “it’s an ongoing process of showing the players that you care about them as a person as well as an athlete.” They found the hardest part about c-oaching was when they see a kid join a sport for all tlie wrong reasons; to earn a letter or to please parents and just goes through the tnotions. Knowing that the kids do not care for the game as much as the coach can be a frustrating experience. Yet on the flip side, there are some terrific days for coaches Mr. Mayo .said, “Came day is great and being able to instill some character and discipline into a young person are the biggest rewards of coaching.” Mr. Joly added, “Seeing the smiles on players’ faces who know they did the best they could is always satisfying.” Coach Joly quietly gives last minute in- structions to his player.

Old students may have noticed three new faces in the halls of Fermi this year. The students and faculty would like to extend our warmest welcome to the three new members of the staff. Mr. Connors has been with the Enfield School System since 1969. Before Fermi he was English Chairman at John F. Kennedy Junior High. De- spite the original feeling of being in a foreign country our newest reading teacher has done an expert job of settling with both the students and faculty. So far he enjoys Fermi. His only complaint is that he wishes there was a window in the library so that he “could see what the weather is outside.” The new in-house suspension teacher, Mr. Shain, came over to Fermi from Enfield High School. The former Industrial Education Teacher states he “is enjoying his new-found home.” The students as well as the faculty have made a very good impression on Mr. Shain. He feels that both are cooperative and courteous as well as helpful and full of enthusiasm. Mrs. Makarewicz, our newest guidance counselor, made her way from Enfield High and before that Kennedy Junior High. She has greatly enjoyed meeting the students and faculty. Her impression of the students is excellent. She feels that the students here are responsible. She is very pleased with the way things are and feels comfortable at her new home, Fermi. Mr. Connors assists one of his students with an assignment aimed at improving study skills.

But these con- cerns have been put to rest IS the year progressed. When asked if the job of an officer required a lot of work they all felt it did. “The problem with the Junior Class is the many different cliques. It was hard to inform everyone about activities and get them to cooperate.” An- other problem was the lack of financial resources and the reluctance of class members to invest in fund raising activities. In their spare time, they all worked and attended school activities. Wendy and Kristen played field hockey and skied; Brian runs. Ester bikes. Kristen also rides horses. Some of the activities the Juniors planned were a float, a dance, a hayride, a class snowman, a picnic, and trips to Boston, New York, and finally the beach.

In preparing for the upcoming years, ' he sophomores have done a good job.

The officers were: resident Karen Martin; Vice- president Roger Flugel; Secretary Ma- rie Shanahan; Treasurer Tricia Veild; Director of Activities Katherine Austin; Historian Sara Grizzle and Hharles Martin. They all got invo lved so they could lelp the class, or in the case of Tricia and Caren, continue helping the class. Al- hough none of the officers thought the job involved much work, they admitted to busy times, especially around Homecom- ing. Some of the things that kept the soph- omores busy were the float, fund raisers, and class rings. In their spare time, the officers do a variety of different things; only Sara works. Katie, Karen, Marie and Charlie go to the movies or shopping with their friends. Karen and Marie are both on the cheerleading squad, which takes a lot of time in the fall and winter. Sara and Tricia both frequent indoor soccer games and Tricia is a member of the St. Martha Players.

Tlic’y were only in their second year of high school, most could not yet drive; otily a few worked. Seldom did Soph- omores earn places on varsity sports, they were not yet elected to club offices. Perhaps they stniled because the sun was out; school was fun and life was good. They had survived freshman year. They had friends. They were a part of the high school with years left to learn. Per- haps they liked being Sophomores. May- be it was the victory they won in the homecoming parade or they class rings which arrived in April. Their class treas- ury was bulging and they sponsored a successful April dance. Whatever the reason the smiles were great to see.

For many under- classmen, this begins in ninth or tenth grade on the Junior Varsity Squad. The cheerleading season begins for these girls in October. At this time they are coached and taught by varsity cheerleaders and expected to qualify with a floor cheer, a sidehne and show proficiency at various jumps. The final squad then practices every Tuesday and Thursday until the end of the basketball season. The girls are expected to attend all home games, participate in Home- coming and conduct a half time show at the Thanksgiving Day Game. They work diligently on perfecting their mounts and coordinating their moves. They also must maintain good grades and follow the rules of behavior re- quired of the Varsity Squad. At the close of winter sports, in March, tryouts for Varsity Cheerlead- ing are held. For some this is a chance to move up, others have to wait an- other year. In the words of one Junior Varsity participant, “It’s really fun and exciting, practice isn’t fun but games make it worth while.” Homecoming is an exciting lime for most Junior Varsity Squad members.

Traces interviewed Michelle Malenfant and Tom Roberts midway through the school year. At this point, they were still perplexed and unsure of what they were supposed to accom- plish for their class. “There isn’t re- ally any work to do . . . just the float,” said Michelle. But both were slowly learning what their leadership role en- tailed. Neither Michelle nor Tom work due to their age, but both are involved with clubs. Tom bowls on Monday and also on weekends. He has also taken up skiing and snowmobiling. Michelle is the coach of the St. Martha’s Cheer- leading Squad. “That takes up most of my time,” she said.

As if it were not bad enough being lost and late, you now have two upperclassmen following you. They are saying something and it must be about you. Distinct freshman put-downs that have to be an annual ritual for upperelass students; a grueling torture for in- coming freshmen. The two from behind trip you and your balance is lost along with your dignity. Your heart is beating faster than you ever thought was capable. They pull up from the floor. As you look around, no one dares to help you. There is never a teacher when you need one. You try to rationalize the situation. “O.K., if 1 do what they say, I should be all right. They ' ll let me go and I’ll probably never see them again. I’m willing to lose a little pride to save my life, right?” So you stand there, shaking, looking ridiculous. They start laughing at you, their voices seem so loud. Your feet are frozen to the ground and their laughter eats away at you. What you have just experienced is the Freshman Myth. Each year, about 300 freshmen enter Fermi High with these thoughts. Fear of the first day fill the minds, and imaginations, of many. The thought of Freshman Initiation Day makes them ill. However, they find that their worst fears are never realized. Apart from getting lost once or twice and their own paranoia, the first day of school is exciting, and, yes, even fun. The terror instilled in them is nothing but rumors and teasing from others. The new students go home with a bit of embarrassment in ever thinking such things. The first day of high school isn’t bad at all, if you learn to overcome the Freshman Myth. r ■- x- .n- 110 Underclassmen Finding his way through the halls in September was John Kendall.

The five energetic and extremely daring students are: seniors Brian Bensely and Randy White and freshmen Mike Lee, Derek Bensely and Duane Couture. They have formed their own touring group, an explorers post entitled Maximum Bad- ness — Post 007. Bicycle freestyle consists of flashy tricks performed on the ground and in the air using giant ramps. The riders get ultimate satisfaction by pushing them- selves to the outer limits doing tricks such as “boomerangs, decades, can- cans, no-handers, x-ups and alley oops.” Maximum Radness dazzled crowds at Explorer Day last June at the En- field Square and were invited in 1986 and 1987 to show their stuff at the Connecticut Special Olympics held at the University of Connecticut in Storrs. When asked to describe Free- stylin’, Derek Bensley replied, “It’s a futuristic, very primitive way to let out your aggressions. And besides . . . it’s fun!” Mike Lee was quick to add, “you mean rad.” Mike Lee Randy While “Getting Air” during a show at Enfield Square. 112 Underclassmen Michael Murphy Randy Neal Tara O’Neill Steven Mutch Dean Nelson Bryan Olesen Gregory Nash Rocco Nozik Gerald Olivier eslyle, a popular new sport, at Enfield Square.

It is important for the freshmen players to develop skills and mechanics so that they will move up to the Jr. Varsity and Varsity Squads. Entering high school as a Freshman was hard enough in itself, but some went for more and joined the Freshman Foot- ball Team. Not only did these students have to learn the new rules of social- ization and academia, they had to learn to work as a team in order to perfect varsity formations. They learned to adjust to defeats and gracefully accept victories. Training began in the summer under coaches Mike Marrino and Jim O’Brien. The team practiced every day after school until five. This often meant staying up late each night completing homework. The most exciting game of the season was the one against Enfield High School. Their win gave them confidence. Un- fortunately, subsequent games were not all that successful. According to one play- er, winning was not the greatest dividend of the freshman season, learning to stick together was. J r !

Consistenl with tradition, the Class of 1991 began their freshman year with an apathetic spirit. In fact, when class elections were held, no one sub- mitted their names. These positions were filled only as a result of broad- cast appeals. The problem, according to IVlichelle Malefanle, was, “Lack of enthusiasm.” Tom Roberta felt that many thought, “it was traditional ! to do nothing freshman year.” But , upon closer observation, uninvolve- t meni was not necessarily “the name of the game.” Many members of the Class of 1991 were enthused and active. Joan Green spent her summer and one day a week during the school year working with the handicapped at Greater Enfield ARC. Greg Durza, Alicia Smith, and Me- lissa Tracey were active members of Lamplighters. The Fermi Band boasted members such as Shannon Kelley, Jennifer Johnson, Thomas Rob- erts, Daniel Dumoulin, Kerri Kearney, to name a few. High on the list of enthusiastic supporters of school spirit were Amy Slack, Kristina Hontz, and Melissa Tracey. These students en- livened the ranks of Fermi’s cheer- leaders. The Freshmen also had their own football and basketball team. Perhaps the fault wasn ' t apathy. Per- haps it was just pains of adjustment. Maybe we expected too much, too soon from our youngest class, because, in the end, they evolved and became involved.

This traditional gathering of pres- ent students and graduates took on new dimensions and was laced with surprise. It all began on October 23 at the annual Homecoming Dance. Seniors Bill Lee atid Michelle Bruno were shocked at being named king and queen. After being crowned by last year’s royal cou- ple, they led a room full of graduates and undergraduates onto the dance floor. A new twist was introduced for the Homecoming Parade Float Competition. It was opened to the whole student body rather than limited to four class floats. Va- riety and competition were the name of the game! And as the train of decorative vehicles passed down North Maple Street it seemed obvious to all. The senior class float was “outclassed” by the Sophomores’, as well as the Freshmen’s. They were first and second. In the individual car competition first place went to Fermi’s new SADD Chapter. As the weekend wound down to a close the Fermi Football team took on and beat Hartford Public 15-0. This gave the Falcons their first win of the season. It capped off a weekend full of surprises.

At this point the pep rally, food drive and football game are on the same level as turkey and stuffing. In preparation for our turkey dinner, students, and for the first time teachers, participated in a school- wide canned food drive. Scores were announced over the loudspeaker daily, forcing all into com- petition. Food and financial contributions collected were donated to the Enfield Food Shelf. On Wednesday the annual Pep Rally was pref- aced with a visit from the co-captains of the Enfield High School Raiders, who were given a rousing “boo” as a welcome. The cheerleaders brought in our chains representing the Thanksgiving money contribution that our classes raised. One of our more excitable seniors, Todd Whitford, attacked the junior chain when he found out that they won. All right Todd! This year our Falcons proved their superiority over the Enfield Raiders. Despite the rain and freezing weather, they had an incredible score of 35-6 in our favor. Through it all the cheerleaders yelled, the crowd roared and we all got wet. Finally numb, cold and hungry, we went home to that great tradition, turkey and dressing. Tyler Timion, one of the four co-caplains of the football learn, wails silently as liis fans cheer him. After the noise subsided, Tyler assured the crowd that the Falcons would be victorious. He was decidedly correct. Todd Whilford, all excited after ripping apart the juniors’ chain, leads the seniors in a loud cheer. Kach link represented a ten cent contribution. Somehow (we seniors have not figured it out yet) the juniors won. Freshman Tim Graczewski helped in the Thanksgiving Food Drive. The faculty took the lead with .368 food items. They were followed by the seniors, juniors, sophomores and freshmen. The seniors show iheir school spirit by giving a rousing cheer for the football team. The foot- ball team responded by winning the game the next day. Cheerleader Karen Martin at- tempts to excite the crowd into a rousing chc r for our Fermi Falcons. Unfortunately, as you can see by the look on Mr. Jurkowski’s face, it is not working. THANKSGIVING Coach John Mayo yells at the referee in disbelief of one of his calls. Verbalizing his opinions as well as his support is one of Mayo’s assets. Despite the bad call Fermi was able to cash in on Enfield’s mistake. 128 Student Life yier Ttmlon and holder Bob Vranlch •mprised a vital pari of Fermi’s effective fense on Thanksgiving Day.

Seniors Todd Whitford and Bill Lee demonstrate their en- thusiasm during the Thanksgiv- ing game match-up between Fermi and Enfield. Despite the raw rainy weather, hundreds of faithful football fans filled the stands. Like many students who attended the game Todd and Bill went home with sore throats due to the fact that they spent most of the game vocalizing their support for our Fermi Fal- cons.

You also tackled the problems of ililtle brothers and sisters, big brothers land sisters, not to mention losing your Jleeth and growing out of your clothes loo fast. ) Then came junior high. This was a big ladjuslment. You didn’t spend as much time with your friends, and school was a imajor part of your day. Still, you man- iaged to keep in touch and be close to ilhose friends who were most important to lyou. You needed these friends to help you get through the tough job of classes, maturity, and now dating. The boy that tied your braids together suddenly be- came cute and the little girl who whined became a fun person to be with. Without your friends, would you have ever been able to get through it all? Now you’re in high school. Your social life is probably the most time-consuming thing outside of school. You balde your parents to be out with your friends. Friends now are more important than anything. Who but a friend could help you through boyfriend or girlfriend trou- ble. Now they have become close and personal, your best friends. They could have been with you on that first day of school. Maybe you met them in Junior High; maybe it was just last year that brought you together. Graduation is approaching fast and the senior class will not be going just to different schools across town, but will be spread across the country.

Despite the high cost of insurance and maintenance, many Fermi seniors owned their own automobile. All types could be seen parading in and out of the parking lot; new, old, foreign, domestic, hot rods or just junks. The privilege of having wheels to drive yields some very positive throwbacks. It afforded seniors the luxury of driving back and forth to school, getting to work, going out with friends and, most im- portantly, it provides transpiortation fd the big dates on Friday nights. It als] enabled participation in after school ad tivities from extra help to clubs anj sports.

Prior to January first when the students were still allowed to smoke on school grounds, the smoking area used to be a place to so- cialize and have fun be- tween classes. “No! 1 won’t go to lunch! You can’t make me eat that food!” laughs senior Holly George as junior Brian Ward futilely tries to drag her out of her fifth period class to the ever life-threatening cafeteria. Every morning starting at eleven, the Fermi High stu- dents practice this comical ritual. Student Life I 134 “Give me back my wallet before 1 hurt you!” demands Jodi Deford as she pins Junior Chris Menard to the wal l. With a devilish grin on her face Jodi stands ready to deal with this apparent criminal. Despite her size Jodi was able to overcome and retrieve her wallet. Lucky for him nothing was missing. After vising a recent college fair. Senior Steve Higley was satisfied with the information he obtained. Unfortunately not everybody had as much good luck as Steve did. Many left the fair confused as to their options. Others felt discouraged by the requirements. FineJly, contem- plating the cost was a sobering experience. Leaning solemnly over a esk, high honors student Latie LeBlanc ponders le fate of her next criticcd aper. The time consuming ard work for Critical Writ- ig can take its toll on a tudent. Fortunately, if the ludents didn’t succeed the rst time, they were given an pportunity to re-write their |apers and obtain a better rade. Taking advantage of lis, Katie assimilates the jggestions made by her ;acher to improve her pa- er. Caught in the act! Soccer player Lara Becker, and swimmer Laura Hoinoski were caught red-handed “powdering their noses” during practice time. As Lara’s shirt implies, the locker room is the lazy guys place to hang out while trying to cut practice time a little shorter. (Just kidding — we know you practiced long and hard all season. Your coaches loved you and we appreciated your efforts.) Second year Traces staff member Gina Alaimo looked seri- ous as she entered Seminar 33. Being re- sponsible for ads as well as the faculty sec- tion weighed on her mind at deadline time. Her job was compli- cated by the difficul- ties she experienced obtaining information from many students and staff members. But she persisted. Student Life 135 SNAPSHOTS Theresa Buss is caught in the act. The secret is out. She spends her spare time playing with Stompers. Will this be the end of her great political career? Probably not, be- cause we learned through the grapevine that Mr. DePino supplies these little cars to all his Physics students. He encourages this activity, in fact, it is a course requirement. Not only does Terry spin her Stompers’ wheels, she measures its speed and resistance. Nothing beats a warm, sunny fall day. Sue Smolenski watches a late afternoon football practice with a friend. Exiting the girls’ locker room, Darlene Kried stopped short when she saw our cameraman prowling the gym for interesting and unusual pictures. Tod Cou- ture stares at the massive traffic jam exiting the student parking lot. Joy Bostick is surveying the gym from on top of a bench as she waits for her friends to change. How she got herself put together so quickly was a mystery we dwelled on for days. Finally it occurred to us that she must have participated in her mini skirt. We really regretted hav- ing not gotten a shot of that. Stacey O’Palick caught in the act by roaming yearbook staff member Pat Martin. Not only had she brought a lunch to school, she purchased additional food from the cafeteria. Trying to explain why she was eating both proved to be rather difficult. Stacey finally hid her faee in embarrassment and refused to diseuss the incident. Pat on the other hand was very voeal about the event. 136 Student Life “Two Ways to Skin a Cat” tfatt Callahan, Chip Laf- argue, and Dan Hart show off heir “manly man” muscles, pos- ng near the main office. When sked they told us that their mus- ics are thanks to Coach Mayo.

Getting a good shoulder mas- sage while in school has always proved to be a problem. When Bob Spanswick offered to work out the kinks in Craig Wojciehowski’s trapezius, Craig was relieved. This relief was short lived. The devilish look in Bob’s eyes let us guess his true intentions. Shortly after this Bob burst out into gales of laughter, and Craig struggled to escape being throttled in public by this good friend. (Rule of thumb: Don’t let anyone fool with your trapezius.) Foreign Friend on Camera One of the most exciting facets of senior year were the exchange students from all over the globe that attended Fermi for ten months. Even those who spoke hesitant English quickly learned the idioms and ex- pressions of the day. All make friends quickly. All enrich the high school by being there. Tuula Kesti, a Einish student, had successfully avoided having her stay recorded on camera prior to this shot being taken. Once again she tried to avoid us. This time she was only partially successful thanks to Valerie Rose. We managed to photograph her cheek and the top of her head. orking in the school store is not nec- sarily the loneliest job in town.

We are told he was simple giving a show (of some kind) al his home. The major evening activities of all red- blooded American teenagers has for years been the PARTY. Like the in- dividuals that attend them, these events come in all shapes and sizes. At the large end of the scale are the back yard, poster advertised, come one-and-all crowd pleasers. At the other end are the in- vitation only, living and playroom small group celebrations. All share one thing — they are a chance to celebrate, to be with friends, to share, to laugh and I plan.

Parties can be tiring — especially when they are held on New Year ' s Day. Student Life 139 1 987-1 Student Life The life of a Fermi student is far from placid. Between studies, sports, work and social life, the amount of free time afforded each student is min- imal. In light of this, we elected to present a Student Life sec- tion in Traces. Hopefully this will shed some light on the com- plexity of the average student’s twenty-four hour day. We found it impossible to totally separate school activities from outside pursuits. School is the focal point around which most ac- tivities revolve. It is where friendships are made and ad- ventures into the world begin. It is where skills are sharpened and problems are solved. Traces Staff EDITOR’S NOTE “Catching forty winks?” Not exactly, in this case it is closer to forty-five for Michelle Doyker and Grego; I Mips. With a hectic schedule of student events, some need to use a study hall to rest. (Editors note: In this case rlii time occurred in French IV.) 140 Student Life Oulside ihe main office at 2:05 p.m., Steven Kaselouskaa, Todd Whilford, Scott Valliere and Brian Austin await the beginning of after school activities. Editor’s Notes When attempting to differentiate between school activities, student life and academic activities, the staff of Traces became confused. Many clubs required academic participation while one stresses ac- ademic grades. Some involved ac- tivities outside of the school build- ing, while others rarely required leaving. The following is therefore a col- lection of all kinds of activities stu- dents became involved in during the school year. All require after hour participation, all offer a Celebrating deadline number two, the staff of Traces holds a seventh period bash resplendent with ginger ale and chips and a masterpiece of culinary achievement from the kitchen of Chris- tina Inthavong. chance to enjoy and work with oth- er members of the student body.. Almost all function on a limited budget and require fund raising. Many involve students with the community and stress widespread participation. Of note this year was the in- crease in student enrollment in various activities. The hal|s of Fer- mi were filled with activities after the hour of two p.m. — dances, competition, volunteer work, plays, concerts and publicatio ns occupied the after hour during 1987-1988. 142 Activities Vol. 17 ACTIVITIES THE YEARLY REPORT HERO: Home Economic Related 150 Occupation. Holding its second Christmas brunch for the elderly, HERO once again filled Fermi’s halls with the echoes of laughter and the joy of giving. This time Santa was accompanied by a clown. COMEDY: Lamplighters produce ‘‘Don’t 152 Drink the Water!” = Students played to a full house in the month of November. Cast and crew proved , over again that teamwork brings about success. TRACES: Magazine Media of 158 1988 Once again the yearbook went into production and the staff learned as it produced. Layout and copy, design and format all evolved in bits and pieces. 144 ‘ Student Faculty Senate The Senate has become an active force in school events. It is a leader in inspiring school and community involvement. 154 Band Maintaining a hectic schedule of parades and shows, the marching band also competed in several events throughout the school year. 146 National Honor Society Enrico Fermi chapter of Sabath M. Nigro National Honor Society main- tains its tradition of academic ex- cellence as well as school involve- ment. 156 Choir The voices of Fermi performed in events at school and within the com- munity. 148 Distributive Education Clubs of America Representing the world of marketing education, DECA once again represent- ed Fermi throughout the state while maintaining an innovative school store. 160 Future Business Leaders of Amer- ica Among the most active clubs on cam- pus. members of FBLA outdid them- selves by adopting clients from the En- field Nursing Home. 147 Physics Club Chemistry Club As Schools Match Wits 155 Jazz Band Color Guard 157 String Ensemble Chorus 162 Bowling Club Model United Nations s Activities 1 43 An Active Yea j Schoc 1 ] Innovative, involved, and enthu- 3 siastic describe the activities and j leadership of the 1987 and 1988 5 Student-Faculty Senate.

Activities 145 NATIONAL HONOR SOCIETY Service To School and Community The National Honor Society con- tinued their volunteer work in the school and community. The Society, which ad- mits members on the basis of character, scholarship, leadership and service re- quired a minimum of twenty hours vol- unteer work from each of its members. To accomplish this goal, members did a variety of services. Some, including Gina Alaimo and Tracy Polmatier, were teacher assistants for first graders at Hazardville Memorial School. Many tu- tored, assisted as guides at Fermi on teacher in-service days and parents’ open house and offered their services at the Halloween Party. Working to achieve ihe 20 hours needed to be a member of National Honor Society, Paul Kogu shows Bobbie Verni the errors of her ways. Tutoring seems to be his forte.

Katie LeBlanc was a lab aid for Mr. Cher- ry and taught Sunday School at her church. Finally, Tracy Thibodeau, Heidi Vanderheiden and Andy Walsh volun- teered at the Greater Enfield ARC. What- ever the service or the need, members of Sabath M. Nigro were again involved, filling their pledge to assist others. The future Einsteins of Fermi all joined the Physics Club in the hope of perhaps once and for all finding the ultimate solution. Meeting after school every Thursday, these students dreamed up bizarre problems in order to find solutions. They took the laws of physics and applied them with enthusiasm and unending curiosity and then visited Riverside Park to apply them. Also meeting on Thursday after school was the Chemistry Club. Their year was divided between field trips and laboratory experiments beyond those ordinarily done in the classroom. These inquisitive chemists searched for reactions as they experimented on lab exercises from a new curriculum. Finally, As Schools Match Wits, was composed of students representing Enrico Fermi on the Springfield, Massachusetts Television station’s high school quiz show. Intellect figured intensely in this game where students had to field questions in front of a television camera. Chemistry Club: First row: Greg Johnson, James Stroiney, Roger Chapul.

Activities 147 DECA Marketing and Retailing Learning to Reap a Profit The exciting world of retailing and marketing comes alive for students be- longing to the Distributive Education Clubs of America. The program offers a two year cooperative work program which enables them to obtain hands-on expe- rience. It also offers the opportunity to share ideas and skills with the other sixty- two active DECA chapters in the state of Connecticut. As in the past, this year’s schedule of events and competitions was as varied as it was rewarding with profits from the student run, school-based store offsetting the expenses. In October, the annual Installation Banquet was held for new members and parents. November brought the North Atlantic Regional Con- ference in Toronto, Canada offering an opportunity to attend workshops and con- 148 Activities ferences. The annual Christmas Poinsettia Sale raised over two hundred dollars for the Eileen Fleming Scholarship Fund. DECA students hosted a faculty meeting in February where they served only nutritious food. Ten Fermi students attended the State Career Conference in Stanford, Connecticut during March. Finally in May the Marketing II students held their Employer Appre- ciation Banquet whereby seniors take their supervisors to lunch in gratitude for the skills they have learned. Be- tween these activities there was the store to run, fund raisers to hold, and programs to print, and least we forget, classes to attend.

THE CROWD ROARED ON Lamplighters Produce a Night of Laughter As always, it ' s difficult to put on a show, any show. A high school production has its own unique problems. Copyright laws have to be overcome, casting — do we even have enough males? Money is always a problem since we don’t have a budget. Any money we make in ticket sales goes back into the costs of producing a show. We have to pay the custodians, the police, the printing of pro- grams, and tickets, make-up, and any props or costumes we have to purchase. Con- sidering royalties for musicals run into the thousands of dollars, we obviously can only do one musical a year, if that! As it is, we have to hope and pray just to break even. With all the problems, it’s a wonder we can do all this, but somehow the cast and crew manage to work hard enough to pull a show off. For example, Stacy McCann went above and beyond the duties of student director to put together the show. Joe Giangrasso is depended on for doing musicals. To the many dedicated people who gave up val- uable snow days to rehearse — I love you all! Ms. Tanasi Tough guy Sieve Smith plays a ruthless military officer in a Communist regime. “You think ihik rent a finger, but it’s really a flesh colored .45,” Walter shouts to Krojack.

In this scene he is lecturing his son played by Eric Stano on all the mishaps he has created, ■like his ambassador father, Eric was not adept at political life.

Here the judges found out what we already knew! Fermi ' s Band is number “one.” For their superior performance, they brought home not only a trophy, but also a school datice, which was spon- sored by WKSS radio station and held in the gymnasium on February 10. Not stopping here, many other ac- tivities and competitions occupied the schedule of events for the Marching Band and Jazz Band. Both performed at the Enfield Square during the Christmas season. The Jazz-Band en- tertained the Senior Citizens as well as the band parents attending the Band Parents Dinner-Dance. On February 27, the Jazz Ensemble performed at the Berkeley College of Music Jazz Festival in Boston and the Fermi Color (iuard performed at Holyoke High School.

Activities 1 57 — TRACES— LAY- OUTS OF A YEAR A Year In Print Magazine Media, a collection of events, people, and views of 1988, grew into reality from an idea. The process of layout design was complex and taxing. At times four sec- tions of the book were under development in bits and pieces making progress impossible to measure. Panic at deadline time was frequent. Inevitably, deadlines were met. Traces went to print in the “bits and pieces” as they became complete. Needless to say, proofs returned in scattered sections and the staff s best efforts to conceptualize a finished prod- uct were frustrated. In light of this, the Traces staff found it necessary to con- gratulate each other — not necessarily on the finished product, but on the pieces fin- ished — bit by bit. Then they proceeded to the next two-page layout. This persistence continued day after day amid laughter, smiles, and sometimes frowns, and of course, an occasional “Come on, guys.” Thanks Guys! Mrs. Frigo Viewing pictures in the hopes that the one-in-a-million shot will enliven the layout is a difficul aptly handled by Sarah Mulready. Interviewing, a seemingly endless job. fell on the should) li layout woman, Tracy LaVigne. Here she waits for Mr. Cutler. Jack-of-all-trades, f Ji Vanderheiden relaxes.

Sports 165 FOOTBALL Fantastic Finish A Slow Start, A Victorious Conclusion The 1987 Fermi Football Team was a quality club in terms of effort, discipline and team improvements. The young and inex- perienced Falcons dropped their first f ive contests by an average of six points before they came together as a unit, winning four of their five final games. They bombed a good Windham defensive team (35-8) and blasted rival Enfield (35-6) on Thanksgiving day. Fermi was competitive in each and every one of their 10 games and with a little luck could have had an outstanding record. Nevertheless, the heart and pride displayed by the Falcons after their rocky start was truly inspiring. Most teams would have rolled over after beginning at 0-5. The 1987 Fermi Footballers rose to the occasion. Much of the credit went to the captains — Mark Kasperan, Mike McNulty, Steve Poulin, and Tyler Timion for their great leadership. We will miss our Senior captains as well as our other senior performers: Gary Richardson, Mike Garrity, Toshi Mochizuki, Duane Sanders, Bob Vranich, Dan Hart, Chip Laffargue, Mike Carew and Dave Houle.

A successful season is one in which the effort put forth in each practice ses- siot) and in each game is exemplary. A successful season is one in which there are memories to recall with a smile and a laugh; the result of the positive expe- rience. The 1987 Field Hockey season, by the above definition, was a success. The commitment and dedication by all ath- letes was readily reflected in the in- creased level of play in each game during this re-building year. While the pre- season goal of hoping to qualify for a 7th consecutive appearance in the State Tournament did not materialize, all play- ers can hold their heads high for their efforts as they strove to reach this goal. The returning players for 1988 wish to thank the seniors for their contributions to the hockey program. Good luck to each of you with plans for the future.

One of the main goals for next season will be to achieve a state tournament berth. Ducking an opponent, winger Michael Butler chases the puck in an effort to obtain possession. This year’s Fermi skaters were an energetic bunch whose flare and pizazz dazzled many fans home and away. 1 88 Sports ICE HOCKEY 190 Sports Readying for a start, senior Mike Shaw adjusts tu goggles and prepares to lake the plunge. Mil f ended his high school career in the state toumame I i in ti 1 in the 200 medley relay, 400 free relay, and i 100 yard butterfly. BOY’S SWIMMING Swimmers At States Young Team Gives All Despite a record of 5 and 1 1 , the Fermi Boys Swim Team never gave any- thing but their best effort at every meet. Although the going got rough, the Boys’s Swim Team never gave up. With hopes of making the State Tournament alive throughout the season, the continuous encouragement from Coach Lessard helped guide many of the team members to state tournament berths. Fermi par- ticipants in the state tournament were: Gordon Murphy, Mike Shaw, Joe Amster, Dan Phelps, Sean O ' Neil, and Kevin Kita. Fermi took third place medals in the 200 medley relay, the 100 yard freestyle, and the 100 yard butterfly. So with their best record in a few years, we say “Congratulations!” to the 1988 Boy’s Swim Team.

What spirit! Wha I enthusiasm! What devotion! It foreshad | owed the new resurgence of school spiri ' which eventually hit the urways of Fermi I and at two p.m. broadcast rock ovei them. I RECAP 8 ii Sports Teams Go To States With a little bit of luck, Fermi’s basketball team made it into the state tournament this year. On a sadder note, the hockey team made it to the States for the first time in three years, but, due to the team’s ineligibility, they were excluded from the tournament. Despite this, both teams offered competitive play, games laced with excitement, and hours of live entertainment. We enjoyed watching them and will ever remember the “Class Teams of 1988.’’ Homecoming Changes The annual Homecoming Parade was a smashing success. This year, students were allowed to enter their cars in the parade. Floats such as the “Seniors Know How to Party” float and Pam Cerrato and Pam Tenero’s balloon adorned car briefly dec- orated North Maple Street. The three top winners in this category were SADD, Field Hockey and Pam Cerrato. In the class float contest for the first lime on record, the Sophomores came in first place. The Seniors were a disappointing third. At The Hop The band came in first place in the Hartford Thanksgiving Day parade this year, winning the school a free dance, courtesy of WKSS F.M. Stu- dents cheers were broadcast over the radio, voices were lost and moves were made. This dance be- came the first dance ever to be held in the school gymnasium. Rubber soled shoes or socks were the evening’s attire. The success of the event prompted a survey by the Student Faculty Senate, which concluded with another gymnasium dance. All in all, there were eight dances this year, more than any previous year. Dances appear to be “In.” Students of the Month This year, for the first time ever, students were chosen to be “Student of the Month.” These people were nominated by one of their teachers for the award. The nominations were re- viewed by a committee of faculty members and one student from each house received the honor (“I’d like to thank my mother . . Brian Aus- tin was one winner of this coveted award. He is pictured to the right playing with a blanket at a party, a typical “Student of the Month.” Among the many changes that took place at Fermi this year, perhaps the one that took place in the school store, temporary or not, was felt the most. Students could no longer satisfy their hunger between classes, and the traffic near the business wing thinned out. We heard it through the grapevine that some health freak was push- ing raisins, depriving us of our sugar highs. Thanks to the efforts of the DECA officers and a campaign to clean the school, the store had its grand re-opening. Apparently DECA, which de- pends on the money generated by selling candy, mustered the courage to appeal to a high au- thority.
