Daily: Busy Hands, Hall Noises, Guidance The 1963-64 year will be remembered by Portage students as one with daily work, special convocations, seventh period activi- ties, contests to be won and new experiences to be tried. They complained of homework, book re- ports, large assignments, — as all other class- es before them. They participated in clubs of their choice and rallied to the support of teams in all sports events. Each busy day required checking in to homerooms, attending classes, passing class- es, chatting with friends, eating in the cafe- torium, then scampering off to a bus and home at the close of the day. Not forgotten daily was the studying and acquiring of new subject material; neces- sary requirements for future success and careers. The year ' s activities aided each student in learning academic subjects, meeting new friends, and participating in various activi- ties which prepares him for becoming a good citizen. CLASS SCENES Ninth graders " reload " for their next classes. It re- quires stamina to lug books around all day.
