Wood Shop acquired new hand tools, two new lathes and the services of a new instructor.

They also learn to develop poise, dependability, courtesy, and platform and stage tech¬ niques.

There are five annual plays presented under the direction of Miss Dorothy Peterson. The funds from the Junior Class Play go towards the Prom.
