Mr. Carl Jensen,
Superintendent of Schools
UBING the last two years, a substantial
effort has been exerted to define the objectives
of the llighline District llducational Program. On
December 22, 1959, the School Board adopted
a statement of educational objectives which can
be summarized as providing a stimulating, chal-
lenging course of study for every youngster in
line with his interests and abilities.
The Highline School District was fortunate to
have as its Board of Directors for the 1959-1960
school year: Mrs. Ola Mae Crawford, president,
Mr. Stanley M. Little jr., Mr. Charles B. Gus-
landerg Mr. james XV. lliceg and Dr. Victor

Many improvements have been made during
these two years toward quality in education.
These include the introduction of Spanish in the
seventh grade, accelerated courses in mathema-
tics and English, expansion of foreign language
courses, reduced average class size, and more
counseling and child guidance services. XVith the
maintenance and operational tax levy voted
March 8, 1960, continued improvements in edu-
cation can be expected.
The Board of Directors tried to offer all High-
line District students the best possible educa-
tional facilities, so that someday they too will be
leaders in Worthwhile community endeavors.

The year opened with a gala anniversary
Ubirthday party," at which all available past
P.T.A. presidents were honored. In November
at the traditional Open House Night, the P.T.A.
board staged a pre-meeting potluck dinner for
teachers, assisted by the Future Teachers of
America. During the year the parents learned of
the diverse school activities and of the seniors'
doings on a Senior Parents' Night. Moreover,
pertinent school information was mailed in news-
letters to their homes during the year.
International contact was re-established with
six students and five adults trekking to North
Vancouver, l3.C., to return last year's visit by the
Canadians. The "exchangees," including Swedish
student, Anders Lindquist, stayed in Canadian
homes and reported their experiences upon re-
turn. Late in the spring to help further foreign
exchanges, the P.T.A. again sponsored the Pres-
ident's Ball-this time with the Foreign Ex-
change Club, on the theme of "Wide, Wide

H, WHAT a beautiful morning" sang
Mrs. Lilly Anderson as she cheerfully went
about her office routine of straightening out
schedules and sorting out lost and confused
Highline pupils. Her three assistants, Mrs. Lillian
Mickelsen, Mrs. Lois Taylor, and Miss Ioan
Jacobsen joined in for the chorus as all worked
harmoniously in the office.
After a summer of work scheduling the pro-
gram each student was to follow, the devoted
office staff carried on in classic style throughout
the school year. They recorded grades and class
information, helped out the office force and
counselors in the attendance office, and were
generally responsible for the efficient running of
the functional business of the school. All this
they accomplished in a competent and exper-
ienced manner, with relatively few mishaps. As
the year advanced, good will records piled up
on the office desks from pupils and faculty alike.
