1955-1958 Let us recall that gloomy morning in September 1955 when we first approached J P with butterflies in our stomachs After findrng our way in by the wrong door we nervously paced the corridors with our new squeaky shoes until the time came to as semble ln the hall Upon asklng directions from a senior we found ourselves searching for a staircase to the fourth floor where we would find the assem bly hall Realizing we had been made the subject of a practical joke we thought rt best to continue on our own After several attempts we finally reached the hall where we were assigned to homerooms by Mr O Leary and Mr Buck In the homerooms we strained our finger mus cles by exercising them for the first time ln two months filling out those terrible program cards Remember XX267? That was the hardest to decipher but eventually it turned out to be gym During the first few weeks, we feebly attempted not only to ab sorb the confusing A B and C schedules but also to determine our correct lunch period After several days of two lunches and tardiness for our next class pleasures Gradually we adapted ourselves to the new environment and buckled down to our studies During the year we enjoyed the privileges that accompanied high school life Most of us attended the dance at the Y sponsored by the Key Club we'll always remember the frm at the Bowling Tour nament. These events were followed by a successful Science Fair and Fashion Show It was these activi ties and even mlnor privileges such as free filing in the corridors that made us feel more adult This was high school and we liked it In the fall of '56 we returned to I P with that know all look We even entered by the right door! Soon we were busy renewing old friendships and mak ing new ones As the year progressed we joined the various clubs or sought part time work through the guidance office This year the Key Club started showing mov ies to raise funds for the purchase of a trophy case Since they were shown on our wide vlstavislon screen no one beyond the first fifteen rows could hear lt but everyone got his quarter's worth of fun Speaking of sound remember your first reaction to the cheers our new gym teacher Miss Russell? We can never say that she lacks school sprrrt' It was during this year that our Clarion won first prize in a contest sponsored by the Boston Globe for an Arthurian ballad written by Mary O Connor All higher social position are what caused our junior year to be a memorable one We retunred to J P ln 57 It was hard to believe that our high school days had passed so quickly and at last we were Seniors We looked down upon those baby faced sophomores and juniors not mention ing the freshmen tots with that exalted look of Ex perience It was our tum to he the leaders! Who was it that said the senior year was easy? On the academic side there was more homework with less time inwhich to do it Yearbook pictures to be taken and college applications to be filed However although there was more work to do we enjoyed this year most of all Our football team rose out of its slump and even crushed our tradition al rival Hyde Park At Christmas we were enter tained by Hum and Strrrrn plus that ever famous quar tet Messrs O Leary Buck Murphy and Dugan In the second half of the year plans were underway for this year s Talent and Fashion shows Remember the confusion caused by rehearsals? Then came the happiest event of the Senior year the Prom The good times had there will always be remembered Finally after the Class Banquet Graduation Day rolled around finding us a little sad to be leaving all our old frlends and J P We will never forget I P H and the wonderful teachers who have helped prepare us for the adult world No matter what the future may hold we shall always remember the most important years of our lives our happy days spent at jamaica Plain High School Maureen Cotter Gerald O'Ne11 Y , , ' .
