School life I8
At the good times
The Prowler staff invites the
reader to take a look at Flint River
Academy's sixteenth year. Take a
look at the students, the faculty, the
activities, and organizations that
make FRA what it is. And now that
the school has passed that impor-
tant fifteenth anniversary, pause,
just once in a while, to take a look
back into FRA's past. The past can
be the key to understanding the
present and the future. Perhaps
there is no better time during a
school year to begin reminiscing
than at a Homecoming game.
"Let the Good Times Roll", the
theme of this year's Homecoming.
was just what everyone did. Al-
though the Wildcats lost a disap-
pointing game to the Meadow
Creek Chargers, all was forgotten
as everyone stepped onto the dance
floor following the game. The stu-
dents and alumni who attended all
enjoyed the wide variety of music
provided by Orpheus.
The Seniors worked hard to make
the gym come alive with decora-
tions. They used colored streamers,
balloons, and glittered music notes
and letters to set the mood for plen-
ty of fun and "good times".
The score at halftime, 24-O, had
spirits low, but excitement built
with the crowning of the l982
Homecoming Queen and her court.
Especially happy were Gay Garrett.

Reames, first runner up, Kim Seay,
second runner ups and Susie Dunn,
third runner up. All were Seniors.

ln every new beginning, excite-
ment, tension, and eagerness can be
found among those involved. This
year marked a new beginning for
Flint River Academy. The school en-
tered into its sixteenth year under
the leadership of a new headmaster,
Dr. Felix Turner. The students and
teachers found that the new year
promised many changes.
To start the new year, an Open
House was held on Sunday, August
29, the day before the first day of
school. The wide participation of
parents, faculty, and students made
this Open House serve its purpose
well. Everyone who attended was
able to get acquainted with the
school itself, new students, teach-
ers. and the new headmaster. This
day gave new parents a chance to
meet the headmaster, school board.
and the teachers.
Another factor adding to the suc-
cess of the Open House was the
delivering of the l98l-82 Prowlers.
The students had been waiting all
summer for the day when they
would receive their Prowlers. Ex-
citement could be seen in the faces
of everyone as they looked back
over the past year and anticipated
the next year to come.

There were many new faces at
FRA this year, but the one that
stood out above the rest was the
face of Dr. Felix Turner. He began
his first yeat as headmaster at FRA,

tor at FRA. Dr. Turner started the
new year with some frustrating mo-

leading sponsor as well as a math

Adams were two new elementary
teachers. FRA began this new year
with its Iargest enrollment ever.
There were many new students in
both the upper and lower school.

A New Year
With the leadership provided by
the faculty and the cooperation
from the students. the new year
was off to a great beginning. As ev-
eryone joined into the swing of
things the excitement and tension
at the newness slowly ebbed away,
but the joy and happiness remained.
All of the changes in the i982-S3
year, a new headmaster, some new
teachers, and many new students.
made the school seem different.
Even though there were a great
many changes, one thing remained
the same. This is the desire to learn
and to be prepared for whatever is
to come in the future.
With the guidance of Dr. Turner
and new teachers came new ideas
and features. One addition was the
assembly held every Thursday. This
gave students and teachers a break
from the usual school day and pro-
vided a chance to relax as well as
learn. Many new courses were of-
fered including creative writing.
guidance and testing, psychology.

lower school, changes also took
place. For the first time these stu-
dents were able to participate in

The I982 Fall Festival started off
"with a splash" with the return of
the ever-popular dunking booth.
The booth, indeed, was the main at-
traction. Young and old alike gath-
ered around to submerge Coach El-
lis, Coach Trammell, Eddie Wells,
Bob Dunn, Butch Gill, and several of
FRA's seniors into ice cold water.
The Fall Festival, though it re-
quired planning and much hard
work, was a big success. The event
was held for the first time on a Sat-
urday from four to ten. Several fac-
tors contributed to the festival's
success. There were a variety of
games - video games, bingo, and
cake walk. The Sweet Shop and
Christmas Shop attracted scores of
people. For those brave and daring
souls, who wished for a little excite-
ment, the seniors prepared a
spooky "Horror House".
No one could forget the main
event of the night - the crowning
of the Fall Festival kings and queens.
Bake sales, raffles, and car washes
were some of the methods used in
raising money. Each class had a king
and queen representative, but only
the one raising the most money
could be crowned. From the lower
school, the king and queen were
Todd Lane and Tiffany Sherrer, re-
presenting Mrs. Akins' third grade.
The upper school king and queen
were Waide Fleming and Lisa Bent-
ley, representing the ninth grade.

Spirit Week was a week for Flint
River students to bring their weird
clothes out of the closet and to
wear anything from mini skirts to
ragged workpants. Most FRA stu-
dents participated by wearing out-
fits that coincided with the theme
of the day. This event is an annuai
tradition sponsored by the cheer-
leaders to get everyone upsyched

They could be found working in
maintenance jobs, coke booths, or
family, church, and business booths.
Those who were not working, to the
distress of their parents, were
spending money on crafts and deli-

greeting friends and listening to the
country music. A very important

Everyone loves the holiday seasonst for celebrating
these special times at school adds a spark of excite-
ment to the year. Halloween was the first holiday cele-
brated at school. On this fun-filled day all the elemen-
tary children enjoyed dressing up and going trick-or-
treating. The kindergarten enjoyed a Halloween party
at Mrs. Lemmon's barn complete with games, a witch
and her witch's brew, and lots of goodies. On Thanks-
giving the younger students held a thanksgiving feast
at the Woodbury Baptist Church with senior citizens.
Afterwards a program in which the kindergarten por-
trayed lndians and the first grade portrayed Pilgrims
was given at schooi. At Christmastime everyone joined
into the spirit of giving as the elementary children
drew names and the high school students brought small
gifts for friends. Santa Claus also visited in the lower
school and the younger children were able to sit in his
lap and tell what they wanted for Christmas. A very
special time at FRA was Grandparents' Day, held in
February. Cn this day grandparents of the kindergar-
ten students were special guests for a program and
refreshments. Then, right around the corner was Valen-
tine's Day. Everyone enjoyed exchanging valentines
and cute cards on this day. In the lower school parties
were held and everyone stuffed themselves with all
sorts of goodies. For the high school students the
Sweetheart Sock Hop was held and everyone loved
dancing to the music of DJ John Alexander from
WVOC. The final holiday was Easter. The elementary
students were delighted to be able to bring colored
eggs from home and have an egg hunt at school. Each of
these holidays at FRA added something extra to routine
schedules and helped in making a more exciting year.

The l983 Kindergarten graduation theme, "Goin' For a
Ride," was based on the popular song from Sesame Street.
The graduation program included poems and songs that
were related to this theme. Each student had a part in the
skits that were done along with the poems. The students
received their diplomas from Dr. Turner at the end of the
program. The i983 Kindergarten class will be well-prepared
for their ride through school in the coming years. Teach-
ers, Mrs. Lemmon and Mrs. Harbin, the aides, and the
parents put much hard work and preparation into the
school year, and the graduation was evidence of this.

After twelve long years of work, study, and teachers,
the senior graduation is a welcomed event. The graduat-
ing class of i983 contained thirty four members, nine of
which were honor graduates.
The i983 senior class made Flint River Academy proud
as they took their final step, graduation. The class chose
for their theme, "The Good News About, Failure". With
the honor students speaking, they presented a meaningful
and inspirational program.
Commencement exercises began with the Baccalaure-
ate service on Sunday night, May 29. The guest speaker
was Dr. Felix Turner, who despite the sweltering heat,
delivered a dynamic message to an attentive audience.
Mr. Frank Tigner read the scripture and gave the prayer.
The graudation ceremony was held on Monday, May 30.
Dr. Felix Turner presented deserved awards, annouced
special honors, and with the aid of Mr. Mell Adkins, Chair-
man of the Board of Trustees, also presented th diplomas.
Class President, Hunter Adkins, presented the senior gifts
to the school, a trophy case and carpeting for the floors in
the senior homerooms.
Senior class sponsor, Mrs. Ken Barnes, and Mrs. Travis
Fuller played the organ and piano for services. Ushers
were chosen from the students in the junior class with the
highest grade point averages. Stacey Collins and Sally
Smith were ushers for Baccalaureate, Steve Bishop and
Becky Pollard were ushers for graduation.
By hard work and clever theme development, the sen-
iors presented a successful program. The graduation class

The Tri-Hi-Y, under the direction of Mrs. Lynn Go-
downs, had an exciting year as they increased their
school and community projects and activities. To start
off the year, the Tri-Hi-Y reestablished their ties with
the state organization, the YMCA. By holding a bake
sale, the club raised Slw which they contributed to the
YMCA's World Fund. The Tri-Hi-Y's first project was
the annual canned food drive at Thanksgiving. The Tri-
Hi-Y asked that each student bring at least three cans.
Approximately BG? cans were collected and given to
the Meriwether County Department of Family and Chil-
dren's Services. These were placed in reserve to be
distributed to needy families.
At Christmastime the Tri-Hi-Y collected toys and
gifts for children who would not have received gifts.
The Meriwether Department of Family and Children's
Services was very grateful for the club's help in this
In February the club sponsored the Sweetheart Sock-
hop for the second consecutive year. DJ John Alex-
ander from WVOC entertained everyone, and stu-
dents, faculty, and parents had a great time.
The Tri-Hi-Y also ordered jerseys this year. They
were white with red letters and trim. Each member was
able to get her name, nickname, or whatever she want-
ed on the back, and also her choice of numbers. Every-
one was well pleased with the jerseys as they were very
sharp-looking for wearing with jeans and slacks.
A project that the Tri-Hi-Y carried on throughout the
year was Happy Monday. Each Monday three or four
members brought sweets and placed them in the teach-
ers' lounge. The teachers were grateful to the club for
their efforts and enjoyed the results.
The final project of the Tri-Hi-Y was the annual bike-
a-thon, held in May, which they co-sponsored with the
Key Club. The funds raised were donated to St. Jude's
Hospital and the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation.

Hard work and cooperation between student and
faculty are necessary to become a member of the honor
societies. A semester average of 90 or above is re-
quired for membership and each member must be ap-
proved by the faculty.
The honor societies sponsor the annual field day at
Flint River. Interesting assemblies are planned and ar-
ranged by the societies throughout the year. On April
2l, twenty two new members were inducted into the
National Junior Honor Society. These students from
seventh, eighth, and ninth grades were: Christie Bat'
tenhouse, Julie Booth. Angie Branch, Leanne Carlisle,
Callie Fowler, Dan Fuller, Jamie Gramling, Anise Morri-
son, Tom Persons, Stephanie Pryor, Don Voyles, Mi-
chele Wetmore, Karen Baily. Lisa Bently, Brent Bryant,
Ashley Garrett, Todd Harvey, Amy Sarsfield, Jodie
Strickiand and Laura Edwards.
On this same day eleven new members were induct-
ed into the National Honor Society. These students
from tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grades were. Lisa
Brown, Frank Gill, Jon Grover, Kathy McGinn, Henry
Persons, Lisa Phillips, Cher Mills, Bobbie Jo Shaw, Mar-
garet Tinsley, Leia Llpton, and Emily Vincent.
Membership into both societies becomes a challenge
each semester. Meeting this challenge is worth the
effort when students become members of this elite

The Prowler staff got off to a head start this year by
selling most of their ads during the summer. Also, five
members, along with Mrs. Voyles, attended a workshop
at Auburn during the summer. While there, they
learned basic information about creating the yearbook.
The members had to compete with sixty schools and
came out on top to win a Canon Sure Shot AF35mm
camera for creating the best layout design and the best
To help with their annual sales, the Prowler staff
hosted one of the monthly PTO meetings. During the
meeting they told a little about the i983 yearbook and
presented a slide show as a preview. The staff then
showed the slide show at school during one of the
weekly assemblies to encourage all students to buy an
The annual staff's major project this year was the
Miss FRA pageant, which they cosponsored with the
newspaper staff. This event was the biggest money-
making project of the two staffs, and was once again a
big success as well as a great deal of fun.
In May the staff attended the Georgia Scholastic
Press Association's annual workshop at the University
of Georgia's Grady School of Journalism. At the GSPA
workshop they again entered the statewide yearbook
competitions. Though award announcements will be
after the yearbook is printed, the staff hoped to repeat
the i982 staff's statewide win of theme presentation.
This was the first time that FRA had won in these GSPA

The Informer staff got off to a busy start at the
beginning of the l982-83 school year. The staff had ten
members. Of the ten members there were only two
veterans. ln a sense the whole staff had to be rebuilt.
They all knew they had a lot of work to learn in a short
The Informer staff first studied journalism and tech-
nique. After that was mastered, they went on to more
difficult things like writing a lead story. They all
learned this in a very short period of time.
Mr. Lewin was the Informer staff adviser. He set
goals for the staff, like how many papers they would
print. This year the staff printed eight papers.
To print a paper it takes many weeks of hard work
and writing. After the staff has everything written,
they take their stories to Thomaston for paste-up. This
is where the paper is actually put together. lt took the
Flint River staff about five hours to put together a

stories: what's happening in Flint River sports, activi-

FRA was very proud this year to have one student,
Donna Howard, chosen for the Governor's Honor Pro-
gram. Donna, a junior. was nominated by the faculty for
this highly coveted award. After being nominated, Don-
na was interviewed by the Governor's Honor's Commit-
tee, and based on this interview and her high school
record, she was chosen to represent FRA in the field of
math. This summer Donna will participate in a six
weeks program at North Georgia College in Dahionega
where she will take part in an intensified study of math.
This is a great opportunity for Donna as well as a real
honor for her and her school.
Several FRA students were selected to be in the i982-
83 edition of Who's Who Among American High School

ln addition to team honors, Gerald Ordoyne received
a medal for highest individual score on the written

ual score. The team members agree that all this could

western College on November 22 in Americus. Five
students made up the Flint River team that took a ninty-
five question multiple choice test. Besides testing at
the Science Bowl, the students and teachers got to
attend laboratory workshops of their own choice. This

classes and gave advisors ideas for using in their class-
rooms. At the end of the day awards were given and
Flint River placed second in the AA division, with Jim
Battenhouse as the high scorer for Flint River two years
in a row. The average score of the Flint River team
exceeded the average score of the other schools.

A Sense of
At the sound of the 8:20 bell spe-
cial groups get together at FRAQ
those special groups are classes. ln
the lower school these special
groups stay together all during the
school day, but in the upper school
they are dispersed during the day.
Competition is one factor of
these special associations: seeing
who can make the most original sign
for the pep rallies, who can bring
the most canned goods for the
needy at Thanksgiving, and most
importantly, who can raise the most
money for the King and Queen of
the Fall Festival.
Enjoying each other makes class
membership special. Being able to
talk and sit with class members dur-
ing lunch or break and being able to
chat with friends between classes
add to that particular sense of be-

After twelve long years of school-
studies, sports, clubs, activities,
and competitions - the seniors be-
gan looking in new directions. With
all the choices and decisions to be
made their last year, they realized
how different life after graduation
would be. However, experiences at
Flint River Academy will be reflect-
ed in decisions made throughout
their future. As the seniors complet-
ed their final year at FRA, they not
only looked to the future, but also
iooked back at the past -- to times
that will never be forgotten.

busy schedules of high school, the seniors learned
thatresponsnnhnes go dong wid1aduhhood.Even

For seniors, the choices and opportunities were
numerous. Whether to go to college, to go to techni-
cal school, to get a job, or to settle down to undeci-
dedness were a few of the options. The pressure to
make decisions increased as graduation neared, and
many found themselves wondering which road to
take. For along with one decision came many others,
as seniors took one step closer to independence.

Many seniors at FRA had already
realized that they would be ex-
changing one classroom for an-
other. These college-bound stu-
dents had been making plans for
weeks, months, or even years, by
taking the SATs writing essays, and
filling out applications, While the
majority finalized their college
plans, others frantically tried to
make that all important decision.
All, however. were busy dreaming
of a life of freedom, independence.
Because Flint River Academy in-
stills the development of mind,
body. and spirit, graduates face the
future with strong minds. strong
hearts. and confidence. FRA has be-
come a poignant memory, but it will

. . . Getting it Together
The junior class was really raring to go when August
rolled around. Receiving their class rings, kicking off
the fruit sales, and making those all-time big prom
decisions were just a few of the things in store for
them. Early in the year the juniors hosted a dance in the
gym for the entire high school. It followed a home
football game and everyone had a great time.
Then came the fruit. Despite the freezing cold and
dreary weather, the juniors can proudly say that they
set a record for unloading fruit. It took them just two
hours to unload both semi-trucks. Class sponsors "Miss
Lib" and Mrs. Copeland were both very pleased with
the fruit sales which totaled exactly 2000 boxes and
raised S5l00, the most ever made, and with the way
the juniors handled themselves.
Everything was not all fun and games though. The
juniors also experienced some tough academic courses.
Learning how to write their first research paper pro-
vided quite a challenge. Also many juniors were in-
volved in the school's literary events and bowl teams.
All together it was an exciting year for the juniors, one
full of hard work, decisions, challenges, and fun.

Striving and Achieving
The I982-83 sophomore class was a class of achievers.
They participated in many extra curricular acitivities to
keep them busy year around. Sophomore Lisa Brown was
a member of FRA's state-winning math bowl team
coached by Mrs. Barnes. Jon Grover, another sopho-
more, sang in FRA's quartet at literary competition. All
six sophomores who played varsity football lettered. Six
sophomore girls were on the region-winning softball
team. Six sophomore girls were on the region-winning
varsity cheerleading squad. Eight sophomore girls were
on the drill team. Cole Garner played varsity basketball
for the second year in a row. Four girls from this class
were on the varsity girls' basketball team, including one
starter, Kathy McGinn.
Simone Rogers and Tracy Maddox sang in FRA's new
ensemble under the direction of Mrs. Turner. Cliff Elliott
and Simone Rogers were in the cast of Flint River's state-
winning one-act-play. An alternate, Cliff Elliott, was on

second time that rings were ordered during the sopho-

Headed fur the Top
The l982-83 school year was an exciting one for the
mighty freshman class, this was their first year of "real"
high school. Beginning this year they were allowed to
participate in such activities as varsity sports, literary
teams, and various other extra curricular activities. The
freshmen showed their intelligence as Trace Lasher, Ash-
ley Garrett and Mollie Battenhouse won the honor of par-
ticipating in the Humanities Bowl that captured third
place at Gordon Junior College in Barnesville. Ashley Gar-
rett scored the third highest in the Humanities competi-
tion at the Gordon event.
Being freshmen also meant that they could join the
clubs in the school, freshmen became members of the Key
Club. Tri-Hi-Y, 4-H, and Drama Club.
Another first for the freshmen class was that they had
Mrs. Barnes as their math teacher. For many this proved
to be difficult. but they found that the hard work pays off.
Although they knew that they probably would not make
the math team, many tried out for math bowl because they
knew it would help them in later years.
Homecoming is always an exciting time for all classes in
the upper school, it was especially exciting for the fresh-
men. They elected Mollie Battenhouse and Tammy New-
man as their Homecoming representatives. Mollie was
chosen the fourth-runner-up in the court.
The freshmen showed their strength again as Fall Festi-
val came around. For the fourth year in a row, their class
won the king and queen contest. They raised money by
sponsoring a wide variety of activities. They conducted
garage sales and newspaper drives and worked at the
Concord Jubilee painting clown faces and selling fresh
apples and roasted peanuts.
I. A new salad bar was added to the Iunchroom, at the Fall Festival Amy
Sarsfield piles it on. 2. Brad Gregg, president, John Koon, vice-president,
and Bridget O'Rourke. secretary, served as class officers for the fresh-
men. 3. Ashley Garrett, Mollie Battenhouse. and Trace Lasher placed
third in the Humanities Bowl at Gordon Junior College.

A Roaring Year
The eighth graders' i982-i983 school year got off to a
roaring start with some new and different classroom
experiences. For the first time at FRA, the students in
the eighth grade had classes in creative writing and
current events. ln the creative writing class the stu-
dents expanded their ability to express their feelings
and thoughts more accurately with words. The eighth
graders learned to increase their awareness of the
happenings in the world around them through the cur-
rent events class.
The West Georgia Medical Center was toured by the
Flint River Academy eighth grade science class. The
students toured the ultra-sound department, the can-
cer clinic, the heart clinic, the radiation treatment de-
partment, and they also learned how x-rays work and
how they are used. The students learned about heart
catherization through video tapes provided by the per-
sonnel at the center. Class members were able to see
how cross-sections of brain tissue looked as a woman
was being examined with the Cat scanner.
The eighth graders sang at the Warm Springs Roose-
velt Auditorium in the Christmas program. Many of the
eighth grade members of the junior high chorus were
named to the district honors' chorus. The expectation
of soon becoming freshmen helped make the eighth
graders' year pass more quickly.

Moving Up in the World
This year's seventh grade was the largest class in
Flint River Academy's history - with the addition of
Ric Strozier at mid-year - 49 strong. Entering the
upper school was a long awaited adventure for these
students. The experience of having lockers and school
dances and participating in organized sports made the
seventh grade year uniquely memorable. The students
in the seventh grade this year had typing as an elec-
tive. This class is usually offered only to older students.
The class also had the opportunity in the classroom to
develop their artistic ability and to develop an ear for
music. The seventh grade students took a day out from
studying Georgia History to celebratre Georgia's 250th
birthday. Looking back on the year, the seventh grade
observed that a year of their upper school education
was a worthwhile experience.
I. The seventh grade elected as their class officers: vice-president,
Steven Grosst president, Christie Battenhouset and secretary. Jamie
Gramling. 2. Don Voyles and Anise Morrison, along with many other
students and even some teachers and parents, thoroughly enloyed
the "Sweetheart Sockhop" 3. Heather Solomon and Andy Crowder
found that learning could be fun as they learned about molecules by
constructing models of DNA using gumdrops and toothpicks.

Top Rung of the ladder
Being "seniors" of the lower school proved to be excit-
ing as well as trying for this year's sixth graders. Exper-
iencing new classes and activities like Spanish lessons
from Mrs. Ellen Lee gave these students a glance at some
upper school privileges. The sixth graders spent many
long hours working in the classroom. They found it neces-
sary to study hard in order to prepare themselves for
upper school. Not only did they learn in the classroom with
the new courses offered, but also outside the classroom
through educational trips such as the tour of the new
Atlanta airport. The sixth graders also received a new
computer and began to learn to use the computer to help
them with their studies. The sixth graders enioyed the
computer and added one more step to their learning.
The sixth grade students also participated in a number
of musical productions directed by their music teacher,
Mrs. Carolyn Turner. Showing their leadership, many sixth
graders performed in solos, trios, and quartets.
As the year came to an end, the excitement of making
the step into upper school could be found in all sixth
graders. All looked forward to gaining this independence
with new responsibilities and activities.

More classes, more hooks?
During the l982-83 school year the fifth graders were
active doing many projects for different teachers. Mrs.
Brisendine, the science teacher, had the students make
crystals from sugar and salt. She also had them make a
model of the solar system. Mrs. Walton, the math
teacher, assigned a booklet of geometric figures to be
made. Mrs. Brisendine, also the social studies teacher.
had the students draw Indian villages and write a re-
port about the villages. Mrs. Cotton, the English teach-
er, assigned book reports every month for the fifth
Besides their regular courses, this year's fifth grade
went to the upper school for Spanish, art, and music.
Most of the students enjoyed these courses more than
the regular courses.
Though they worked hard, the fifth graders did have
a little fun. ln December they were able to miss class to
rehearse their Christmas songs. Also in December, they
had their annual Christmas party which was enjoyed by
everyone. They also had a Valentine's party in February
and an "End of the Year" party in the month of June.

An Exciting Transition
This year was a year of "firsts" for the fourth grade.
Fourth graders looked forward to choosing what they
wanted to eat in the lunchroom and playing on the
lower playground with the sixth gradersl The fourth
grade was represented in the king and queen contest
by Nikki Stevens, Michael Couch, Jessica Gray, and
Brooks Solomon. Their competitive spirit grew strong
with participation in P.E. and in Field Day. Several new
subjects and activities were added to their schedule.
They enjoyed science, art, and Spanish. In English the
fourth graders learned how to write and use quotations.
During the middle of the year computers were added to
all the elementary classes. In the fourth grade the stu-
dents used the computer to improve their math skills.
They participated in two musical productions, "Hey
God, Listen" and "Christmas Around the World," that
were under the direction of Mrs. Carolyn Turner. Don-
nie Lemmon throughly enjoyed being narrator in "Hey
God, Listen." Book reports included designing their
own book covers and dressing up as a biographical
character. At long last, they discovered that reading
could be fun. The teachers said. "The fourth graders
were enthusiastic, interested young people, for whom
every day is an adventure. They specialize in friend-

Un The Road Again
The third grade made several interesting and educa-
tional trips during the I982-83 school year. They trav-
eled to Atlanta to see the "Emperor's New Clothes" at
the Alliance Theater. Another trip was a tour of Eastern
Airlines at the Atlanta airport.
These students participated in the canned food drive
sponsored by the Tri-Hi-Y and received a certificate
for reaching their class goal.
The climax of their unit study in Georgia history was
the long awaited trip to the state capitol in Atlanta.
This trip which is made by the third grade class each
year proved to be fun and educational for the students.
A new addition to the third grade was a computer.
The students enjoyed practicing their math on the

less Time for Play
More Time for Worh
The second grade found the new school year different
from first grade. There was less time for play and more
time for work. The second graders learned how to write
in cursive. In math they learned how to borrow, carry.
and began basic multiplication.
Visitors added new joy in learning for the second
graders. Trooper Eddie Jackson visited in his state patrol
uniform. He taught the class safety rules. One of Dr.
Hopkins' dental assistants, Miss Tooth, came to teach
the students about good dental hygiene. She said, "If you
are true to your teeth they will not be false to you."
The second grade class participated in the film festi-
val, each voted on his favorite film. The second grade
unanimously chose Fourteen Rats and the Rat Catcher.
They also performed in the annual lower school Christ-
The second grade class had four field trips. They
toured the Atlanta airport and they attended two plays.
"The Emperor's New Clothes" and "The Pirates of Pen-
zance." At the close of the year, the class had a picnic at

A Big Step foward
In their first year of "real" school, first graders found
that learning can be fun. Their learning activities, taught
by Mrs. McAdams and Mrs. Gilleland, ranged from writ-
ing and reading to phonics, math, and telling time. Texas
Instrument computers and monitors, a new addition to
the lower school grades, provided these students with an
innovative tool. With so many hours spent studying in
the classroom, it would appear that they did not have
much time for play. However, the first grade participat-
ed in many activities outside of their classrooms. Field
trips, to a puppet show and the zoo, and performances, in
musical productions and in a Thanksgiving Day program,
were only a few of the numerous activities of these
students. With such a busy schedule, first graders were
expecting a second grade year full of excitement.
I. Nervousness can be seen on the faces of Misty Procurot and Lisa
Hunt as they prepare to perform at the Christmas program. 2. To Dana
Godowns and Chris O'Neal. dressing up like pilgrims is a favorite part
of the Thanksgiving Day program. 3. Jason Porter enjoys escaping from

Taking that First Step
Attending school and liking it . . . how does a kinder-
garten teacher instill this idea into thirty-seven school
age children? Mrs. Lemmon and Mrs. Harbin had spe-
cial activities every month. In October, the kindergar-
teners had a party at Mrs. Lemmon's barn, which was
complete with games, a witch and her witch's brew,
and lots of goodies to eat. In November they had a
Thanksgiving feast with the first grade. and the Keen-
agers were special guests. Christmas was a time of
celebration at Matt Fuller's house. Everyone helped
decorate the tree for the tour of homes and afterwards
had a party. The children anxiously awaited the arrival
of Grandparents' day in February. To greet the grand-
parents, corsages and boutonniers were made. Grand-
parents' day was a great success with eighty-six grand-
parents attending. ln March, they had an Easter party
with the Community Helpers as special guest speakers.
A new project this year was the Apple of the Week.
Each week whoever is leader of the class gets to bring
items like photos and vacation souvenirs to put on a
bulletin board in the hall. Through the year while they
were taking that first step in learning, kindergarteners
were having fun at the same time.
I. Shannon Hobbs and Cal McDonald hang ornaments for the tour of
homes at Matt Fuller's house. The kindergarteners made the decora-
tions themselves. 2. Learning to tell time isn't all that bad, as seen by

Learning and Fun
In the playlearn class, four year olds were taught to
work and play together. The teacher, Mrs. Kalynn Hat-
chett, inspired and directed the four year olds to listen
as well as speak and to finish what they started. The
students in the class were led to develop a curiosity
about the world around them, to begin new interests
and to extend old ones.
The students observed common things in the world
around them. The chore of cooking a typical everyday
breakfast was a pleasure to the playlearn class. Each
individual had the opportunity to break an egg on their
own, fry stips of bacon, and flip pancakes.
To many adults, the difference in the state and the
national flag is a mundane thing. The four year olds'
questions were answered in the playlearn class with
pictures and a trip out to the front of the high school
building to see the "real thing" waving in the breeze
atop the flagpoles. The main goal of the playlearn class
was to answer the questions of four year olds and to
prepare them for kindergarten.

A Key to Success
There's a time for work and a time for play, this
seems to be the philosophy of Flint River Academy's
teachers. Taking a break from the work with their
students is something that every elementary teacher
enjoyed. Though day to day work is a necessary part of
learning, escaping from the classroom was a real treat
therefore the elementary teachers organized many
field trips and activities for their students. This gives
the students a chance to learn, grow, and have fun at
the same time.

Church. Beth Pierce is also a kindergarten aide. She
enjoys cooking and swimming. Mrs. Pierce is a member
of Williamson United Methodist Church and enjoys
teaching Sunday School there.

received a BS degree. She enjoys reading, cooking and
playing tennis. Ruth Nash is member of the First Baptist
Church in Gay. She enjoys sewing, painting, doing

The i982-83 school year was one
of pride, for Flint River Academy
had come a long way in such a short
time. With so many new beginnings.
with a new headmaster, new poli-
cies, and new programs. the year
progressed through the hard work
of many people.
This year was full of new exper-
iences that were participated in by
every student in the school.
During the year there were many
assemblies, at one assembly was ob-
served Founders' Day, at another
students listened to people tell
about their high school days as
compared with today. Senior Send-
off was a tradition started this year
at FRA. Juniors, Sophomores, and
Freshmen talked about the seniors'
achievements, wishes, and memor-
eis. Afterwards, the seniors were
sent off by the students, who lined
the drive-way and waved good-bye.
This is going to be a tradition to be
carried out each year at FRA.
Looking back, we see the good
times and the bad. With all these
memories, students closed another
chapter in the book of their lives
and took a step toward the future.

VM My I
Looking back I gazed at the
tracks I had made in the sand, and I
thought about myself, about the
paths I had walked, about the new
direction I was heading. And I sud-
denly realized how small I was, and
how insecure I was, and how big the
world was, and how Lonely the new
path was - and I wanted to turn
back. But as I turned and looked
back, the wind had blown out my
tracks. So I walked forward and
didn't look back again.
The class of l983 will look back at
this year and their previous thir-
teen years at Flint River Academy
with fond memories and with a feel-
ing of pride in their school. They
have now joined the fifteen other
classes to become alumni who will
work together to continue the heri-
tage begun -- a school to develop
mind, body. and spirit.
I. The Seniors of l983 look back at exciting
years at Flint River Academy. There were
good times, and bad times, but they will al-
ways be remembered by the class of l983.
