The high school cross country team is
really more of a Jr. High team. There is
only one freshman and the rest of the
team are out of Jr. High. This cross coun-
try team has accomplished so much this
year, it is unbelievable. The team compet-
ed in seven regular meets and did very
well in all of them. They also went to a
Philip Invitational where they took first
place. When the regionals came, all the
athletes were in very good shape and
their final finishing places ranged from
second to sixteenth. Regionals also took
place in Philip. The team, except for
three, then went on to the state meet in
Mitchell. The athletes all did exceptionally
well and came home with their heads up
high. Coach Alvin Birkholz has taken on
coaching these kids as if they were his
own. He was very pleased with the out-
come of the season.

Even though the junior high football ended with a O-3
record for the season, the boys had potential. Mr. Galen
Britain was the coach with the help of seniors, Danny
Coy and Bon Brown. The team games were against
Edgemont, Douglas, and Custer. Coach Britain was
pleased with the talent of the team and did an excellent
job of teaching the boys the basics of football.

George Wright, Mark Meissner, and Wade Morris assist with the heavy
chores of moving out of the Junior High building and into their new
Junior High Math Home Economics
Science Industrial Arts
Social Studies Band
Orientation Physical Education
The seventh grade class is the beginning of the
junior high years. They have moved up to "having
my own locker." This is when most girls are using
make-up and boys are taking the football field by
storm - for the first time in their lives,
The seventh grade advisors are Mr. Boyer and
Mrs. Stapert. In December before Christmas, they
hosted an ice-skating party for the class. Only a
few students braved the extreme cold weather.
They skated near the Fianger station, then re-
turned to the Home Economics room for hot
chocolate and cookies.
Eighth graders are at the top of our "growing"
ladder. Every elementary student's goal is to be-
come an eighth grader.
After Christmas vacation, the seventh and eighth
grade classes moved into their own facility in the
gymnasium building. The students in these groups
have social, emotional, physical, and intellectual
needs that are different from the elementary or
high school students. The curriculum in junior high
provides a program of instruction to meet those
needs. The teaching staff concentrates on teach-
ing basic skills. Choices and decision-making are
all a part of education. A keyboarding class with
Mrs. Stapert was added for eighth grade girls dur-
ing the second semester, The class was added to
better prepare the girls for computer fingering.
Experience is where most is learned, and junior
high is where it begins.
The junior high choir will put on a musical in March
called "VVheels."-"Wheels" is the history of how
the wheel has developed. lt begins during the
stone ages and works through the development of
the wheel into the future. The play has several solo
parts. The main characters of the play are Flock
and Martha. The casting has not yet been com-
pleted, so we cannot give the character assign-
Mrs. Pam Johnson created the costumes for the
cast. Flon Brown is the Student Director assisting
Mrs. Amanda Engstrom with the junior high choir.
