ong awaited and gone too fast
are phrases that describe those glori-
ous spring and summer months. As
the sun shined down warm and the
days grew longer, every J-Hawk knew
it was time to head outside.
Fun in the sun could be found at
lunchtime, after school, and some-
times during class, as skipping became

Student life-just what was it like at
Jefferson? While each person had his
or her own way of making the most of
that precious free time. several events
brought students together and created
many memorable occasions.
The end of August also brought the
end of summer fun. All those days on
the beaches of McBride. and nights
around the beverage container at
Sandy Beach, finally came to a halt.
Sleeping in late and iust plain taking it
easy were also brought to an abrupt
The return to classes in the fall also
brought a return of several social
events which served to bring many
students together. Football games
were the "place to be" on Friday

the time they would rule the school.
For the seniors. it was a special year. a
chance to demonstrate their authority

high school. But for every student.
there was a lot to look back on and
more to look forward to.
