In addition to his daily routine, he planned the curriculum, kept things running smoothly, and attended many meetings concerning new ideas in educa- tion. Dr. Kariger is a hard-working man who tried his best to give us a school with the right atmosphere for learning. Dr. Kariger and Mr Middleton conferred on many subjects throughout the year Mr. Middleton, our assistant principal, did many things to keep our school operating evenly. He supervised our lunch program and made sure the seventh period program was in working order. Among other duties were book rentals and locker assignments.
