There are thirty-one freshmen, nineteen boys
and twelve girls.
Out of four subjects there are only two that
the boys and girls have together. These are math
and general science.
Being our first year in high school we found
many things to get accustomed to. Such as, musical
events and school activities.
We also tossed in a lot of fun by attending
school parties and working on our float, which got
The sophomores also gave us a hayride which
everyone enjoyed. In return we had to give the
sophomores a party.
Freshmen are offered a variety of subjects in-
cluding agriculture, industrial arts, home econom-
ics, general math, and general science.
The girls who take home economics have a
wide range of interesting and educational work to
do and learn. They have learned the art of cook-
ing breakfasts and luncheons. They also took up
sewing by making themselves aprons and gathered
skirts. They brought flowers to school and then
learned how to arrange them most effectively. At
Christmas time the high school Christmas tree was
trimmed by the girls. A party was given by the
freshmen girls for the kindergarten class with a
circus theme. To broaden their knowledge even
further they were allowed to take agriculture for
a Week. They learned different carpentry, pound-
ing nails and affixing hinges. They learned live-
stock feeding and the difference between the dif-
ferent types and breeds. Also a short course was
given on the basic wiring.
The vocational subjects offered to the boys
are industrial arts and agriculture. The boys tak-
ing shop are building cabinets, gun racks, and
The agriculture boys are repairing machinery
and building different farm equipment items which
include, loader chutes, self feeders, and feed bunks.
The boys also took a week of home economics
where they learned how to sew, judging the qual-
ity of clothes, getting along with others - espe-
cially girls, and the last day they made ice cream
and brownies and served it to the girls.

Imagine yourself spending a day in Alta High
School. You would find it quite easy to find a
Sophomore either in or around school.
The Sophomores spend their class time in
English, World History, Biology, Algebra, and
Home Economics. The Agriculture class is inside
except for an occasional field trip. The drivers
education classes are inside when learning the
rules and outside to learn how to drive and to get
the actual practice. Physical education classes are
held outside in spring and fall and are in the gym
during winter months.
Extra curricular activities also have a share
of the Sophomores time. There are Sophomores
participating in all music activities, vocal and in-
strumental. FFA, FHA, GAA, and Scarlet and
Black Staff are other organizations in which
Sophomores take part as active members and of-
Parties are not a forgotten part of the Soph-
omore class. During the year the Sophomores
sponsored dances after football and basketball
games. The Freshman-Sophomore party is held
twice each year and each class sponsors it once.
