The sign outside the school building calls our renovation "a moderniza-
tion." To us, however, renovation is the rat-a-tat of a jackhammer competing
with typing, the shower of plaster coating our history notes, the murmur of
the P.A. system pleading during math . . . "Will Richie the electrician please
come to the office? . . ." lt's climbing from the second floor tothe fifth to find a
greeting on the door . . . "English 810 will meet in Room 219 today . . ." lt's
wishing the hot food were back . . . "l'm so tired of tuna fish . . ."

We won't be here when the wires are tucked back into the walls and the
water fountains spout again, when the kitchen is unveiled and the clocks
all tell the same time, when fluorescent lights shine upon a refurbished, re-
furnished, refinished James Monroe High School. No, we won't be here
when . . . but we certainly were here during!

Renovation is the turning
into a plastered wall, the Monroe Mirror
Office turning into a men's rest room, and the
school turning into a disaster area. Renova-
tion is cubicles and cubbyholes carved out of
corners, and team teaching in a room large
enough to hold u team. Renovation is leaving
the room to go to a place that isn't there . . .
"Hey, where's the bathroom? . . . Who took the
bannisters? . , . Whatever happened to Sep-
tember? . . ."
