WING Languages CLASS HISTORY It was September - 1951 - A warm pleasant day. Excited, happy, proud, scared. It was our first day of high school. We were now members of Gilbert. We'll always remember the feeling we experienced on that first day at Gilbert. How big the school was. Oh! So many kids -- kids we didn't know. Trying to find our way to classes was an ordeal we hadn't encountered before. The homework - it seemed like so much to us - on the first day. We thought we'd never get it done! High School opened a whole new life for us. We joined the various clubs and some of us tried out for sports. Our first year was exciting. As we look back we think of the pleasant memories that went along with each event - the dances, the Dramatic Club's play, the football, basketball, and baseball games, report cards - oh those report cards - and the never-to-be-forgotten exams. Then came june - how we longed for summer vacation. In the fall we reentered Gilbert as old pros. Re- member all those little freshmen? How we gave them wrong directions as to how to find their way about the school. The excitement and drudgery began again. This was the year we had to learn our World History. All those dates just didn't stick with us. Yes, all our teachers had a terrible time trying to pass knowledge our way. Our year quickly passed and soon it was june - loveable june - for vacation time was en- joyed by all. Some of us went off to camp, others worked during the summer, but most of us just loafed. Our junior year - we were big shots now. And the freshmen - weren't they smaller than last year? Did we shine in football, Led by Bill and Glen, our team hit a record by winning them all. One more trophy for the trophy case. Thanks fellas. This is the year we adopted our famous last words - "Care," "Sane," "Chance," "Pretty," "Agile," "Legal," Oh, yes, we'll never forget that wonderful performance put on by the faculty. Basketball was now in full swing - Pep Rallies held in the gym brought out many new fans. Did we have the team! Again we made history - imagine us - we finally won our way into the championship games at New Haven. Our boys worked hard to gain that recognition. Thanks to our cheerleaders -- your support helped the team tre- miendously. Remember those Driver Training classes? Mr. Beecher had to put double insurance on the car after we took over-Ah!!! We now are full-fledged? "drivers". This was the year we all got our class rings. How we treasured them. Summer vacation was all too short. Our last first-day at Gilbert. Excitement buzzed in the halls - homework piled up. We were Seniors. How long we looked forward to being Seniors. Re- member how excited we were to have our pictures taken? We were so anxious to get our pictures - at last came the day -- Senior pictures were passed out. Our football team did very well this year. Boy! Were we famous. Our games were broadcasted over Station WLCR - a first for Gilbert. The faculty play proved to be a huge success. Basketball took over. The kids sure loved those games. The Prom will be long remem- bered by all. Time quickly passed. Graduation was coming closer. We realize for the first time that we'd have to leave the Golden Halls. There wouldn't be another September when we'd all get together for that first day of school. We hated to leave - but we were anxious to go looking back on our past four years of school. We'll all have many memories to keep the Golden Halls alive. We'll all miss those wonder- ful school days spent at Gilbert. Sylvia DePaoli c L wf Q5 EQ X N 'R 5? V.,,,r,--., ,, 1 l l 5. L l V s l 1 "THE SEEDS OF TIME" During our Freshman year, we looked toward the senior class and sighed gently to ourselves, "Will we ever be seniors?" The prospect seemed quite dim from our point of view. Our subjects were so hard andlour teachers were always "picking on us." Most of us spent quite a miserable fall, trying to grasp our new way of life. However, by the middle of the year, we discovered that our teachers were really very nice, and if we honestly tried to concentrate on our home- work, it wasn't so bad after all. We made all sorts of new friends and gained several new interests. When we became sophomores, we felt that we knew all there was to know about school life, and we had great fun teasing the freshmen. And why not? They were just children! We even added to the story about the elevator in the basement to our freshman friends and then laughed at them as they patiently trudged downstairs to find it. Our Junior year loomed suddenly, and wonder of wonders, we were upperclassmen. Gosh, but it was a wonderful feeling - we were superior! We ordered and received our class rings with pride, for the shiny gold rings were our mark of distinction. Now we are seniors, and we look back and say, "Were we ever freshmen?" It seems so long ago and yet so near. As each day passes, graduation approaches and becomes more exciting. We are now looking forward to the future with mixed emotions. We are eager for graduation yet we hesitate to go out into the world on our own. And so it is, that we now take leave of the "Golden Halls" where we have had so many good times, made so many friends, and gained a good amount of knowledge. V.

They are taking their last look at Gilbert remembering the good times they have had, as well as the work they did which has prepared them for the world they are now entering. Also, they are remembering their favorite part of the school where the gang would meet. Will others have that place now, or will it be just another empty space in the school. The graduating class is talking about which teachers are well-liked by them and which ones have helped them the most in their work even though they didn't seem to think so then. At times the class thought the teachers gave them too much homework, but actually it was for their own benefit. As the years go by, the class will appreciate the work they had to do more and more, and they will remember the teachers and thank them for the hard work that they had given them. In the class of '55's memories, there are the many exciting football, basketball, and baseball games that they have seen during their four years at Gilbert. The boys that played on the teams have much to remember as they have helped a great deal in giving the opposing teams good competition. The cheer- leaders, that have cheered at the games, have shown good school spirit as they spent many hours practic- ing the cheers. The pep rallies and dances will also be long remembered as part of the good times here at Gilbert. As the seniors look back at the good times they are leaving, they are thinking of their many under- classmen who are struggling for the same goal that the class of '55 has already reached. Will the under- classmen succeed? They will, with a lot of hard work and studying, reach the success they are looking for. The class of '55 hopes that they will reach this goal. The class of '55 is now saying good-bye to the faculty and underclassmen with all the above thoughts in mind, and they are hoping to make good in the business world. if 9 Wm?

THE MIRACLE BOARD EDITORIAL STAFF Editor-in-Chief-Marianne Curcio Business Manager-Hoyt Nelson Literary Editor-Sylvia DePaoli Photography Editor--Thomas Bonadies Art Editor-Robert Carrozzo Typing Editor--Sandra Whitney Identification Editor-Frances DePaoli Assistant Business Manager-David Light The purpose of the Miracle Board is to encourage and stimulate school spirit. Its members have devoted many hours of thought and time to the preparation of a year book for the class of 1954 - 1955, which will ever recall memories of its four years at The Gilbert School. The faculty advisor to the Miracle Board is Mr. William Graves EDITOR-IN-CHIEF What Next? Now that we have reached the turning point in our lives, what next? Congratulations surely are in order for we have come through some twelve years of hard work and many experiences. 5 There were times when we were ready to give up, but we kept on struggling to keep our heads all the struggles. At this point our education is every- thing. We had our proms, football games, basketball and baseball. Now, we have our yearbook. This is part of our past. Also our "Miracle" will be with us to face the future . Now that we have reached the turning point in our lives, the mystery is slowly being resolved: "What ,H above water. But now that we are about to enter this Next. wonderful world of ours on our own, it was worth Marianne Curcio THE FRESHMEN The freshmen came to Gilbert last September not knowing what the school was like. After a year's experience, they know what is expected of them. Now, that the freshmen year is at an end, each one is looking back and thinking of his new experiences at Gilbert. Each is also looking ahead at the good times to be enjoyed until the goal is reached, graduat- ing from the "Golden Halls" of Gilbert. SOPHOMORES Our second year at Gilbert promises us much. We have outgrown our childish atitude toward school and homework. We used to fret whenever given an assignment, but now we realize that much of our learning depends on that homework. We have a wonderfully planned course of studies prepared for us to give the background needer for a particular career. It's up to each of us individually to cooperate and to be willing to learn everything possible in our chosen profession. Our experiences at school help tremendously after we are working. Remember, your future depends on your education. JUNIORS Once more we find ourselves in the "Golden Halls". It is up to us here and now to really buckle down and put ourselves to some hard work. This year we are older and wiser. Our education should mean a lot to all of us. We are at the stage now where some of us will be looking for jobs. Our ability to hold those jobs will depend on our education. Education may mean the difference between holding a good job - the job you always dreamed of having -- or merely working at some other job because you lack the necessary education required. So don't be hasty. Let your education pay off for your future.

They are taking their last look at Gilbert, remembering the good times they have had, as well as the work they did which prepared them for the world they are now entering. Also, they are remem- bering their favorite part of the school where the gang met. Will others have that place now, or will it be just another empty space in the school? The graduating class is talking about which teachers are well-liked by them and which ones have helped them the most in their work, even though they didn't seem to think so then. At times the class thought the teachers gave them too much homework, but actually it was for their own benefit. As the years pass, the class will appreciate, more and more, the work they had to do, and they will remember the teachers and thank them for the driving force they established. OUR The answers all boil down to a few basic wants and needs in life. The words "success" and "happiness" are predominant factors in everyone's life. just about everyone in our world today wants successg yet what is success without happiness? One can have every- thing that he wants and still be unhappy because something is lacking in his life. Perhaps, he had In the class of '55's memories, there are the many exciting football, basketball, and baseball games that they have seen during their four years at Gilbert. The boys who played on the teams have much to remember, because they helped in giving the oppos- ing teams good competition. The cheerleaders showed school spirit, for they spent many hours practicing and delivering cheers. The pep rallies and dances will also be long remembered as part of the good times at Gilbert. As the seniors look back at the good times they are leaving, they are thinking of their many under- classmen who are struggling for the same goal that the class of '55 has already reached. Will the under- classmen succeed? With hard work and studying, they will gain the success they are looking for. The class of '55 hopes that everyone will gain the goal. GOAL wanted success so badly that he forgot to enjoy the simple pleasures of life. Knowing this, we seniors, who are graduating from high school this year, want success in our chosen fields - and above all, we want happiness in our future. i S X ' A X ...,,- x, f i 1" XN, XX 1 f' X'N XX x X NN X "5 1" XX N N X X f X X f I x I I Y , XX ,..MErxeun.y 1 xxx.. -.-z , ,' f 4 x I Ymus xg fr k 'Vieux f 5 if 5 70' f Lung-if I I I ERR'u'N,f fl- X ,- ,- 1 2' S X K -f -,f- If 'LY 1-.,,.,1 Z ,O ? il!
