' Classes display concern 1 I ' for fitness in health, gym Dirty gym clothes and getting swea- ty from dressing out became a daily routine in the life of a gym student. Gym class simply did not ,allow enough time for the students to take a shower. As students learned to cope with the lack of time to become presen- table, they enjoyed participating in the various sports that gym offered. "Outside, students have the choice of playing football, softball, soccer, basketball or walking around the track," said Coach Don Coleman. "Inside, students can play badmin- ton, basketball, volleyball and ping- pong," he added. Because the girls' basketball team had the gym first period, first period gym class had to sit in the cafeteria. "It was awesome because on cold, rainy days, we had to go in the cafeteria, and I could finish my 234 O Health!Gym homework," said junior Bill Krause. The introduction of the semester system shortened the time for a stu- dent to complete gym. "Last year, a gym student needed five quarters or one and two-thirds of a year to com- plete gym," explained Coach Col- eman. "This year, a student needs three semesters or one and one-half of a year to complete gym," he continued.

On some days, students would have to listen to lectures. Health teachers required students to write a two page report from a choice of difficulties that are present in every student's life. "Students could pick alcoholism, drugs or smok- ing as a topic for their major report," W w..x ":" W x 'llgixv os x gg ,..,, . - iti' if is '5 Q 3 J!! gl l -:..- - ra -f -t ,t . 4 Student blood pressures were checked by a nursing staff during health and government classes.
