As we close the cover on “not just anoth¬ er year” at the " Rock,” the words of the ALMA MATER express what all of us should feel about this year. By the mighty Mississippi on a rocky shore, Stand the school we love so dearly, Now and ever more. V I Alma Mater, Alma Mater, We thy children as of old, Sing thy praise in song unending, to the Crimson and the Gold. Tho’ the future years may part us, Still together now, Faith and love to old Rock Island. Ever more we vow. Alma Mater, Alma Mater, We thy children as of old. Sing the praise in song unending, to the Crimson and the Gold. The memories of the year are fresh and new now; memories we have created for ourselves at the “Rock " will last forever¬ more.

The end of this school year has proven many things. The dream of being recog¬ nized as an important part of the com¬ munity was finally realized. From first place speech team wins to a new weight¬ lifting association, we have proven our¬ selves mature enough to participate in the world around us. From Sweetheart Swirl to the Presidential Classroom and National Honor Society, we have been able to live together as one unit — shar¬ ing and helping each other to succeed. Yes, this was the year for growth at the “Rock,” growth in the community, and growth in us as individuals. This is only the beginning of a wonderful relation¬ ship that is filled with promise and hope for all. The profits from weekly basketball raffles paid for the Booster club’s project of painting the field- house bright red and yellow. Each week, matching signs were made to boost the Rocks. Liz Wheelan and Ted Grevas admire the fountain at Swirl. 231
