SO SAY THE TEACHERS
Several of the teachers who have taught the
freshmen this year were asked to give their opinion of the class and
here we have recorded the various opinions.
MISS FOSBRINK: "I have enjoyed
teaching the class. They are very good and no problems at all."
TRANSLATION: “In all my 187 years of
teaching, I’ve never seen so many ne’er-do-wells! But I like that nice
Kranning boy who rakes my leaves.”
MR. HOUGHLAND: "I wish the freshman
class all the luck, but I encourage them to work a little harder."
TRANSLATION: “This lazy bunch is going to
need all the luck they can get!!!”
MRS. WITTERS : "I have enjoyed it
very much. They were very responsive and volunteered answers and the
TRANSLATION: I thought they would never
shut up!! That Sprunger girl really has a mouth on her!! Wow!!
MR. BOLEY: "On the whole, a good
average class. Many will contribute to society.
TRANSLATION: “Another class like this,
and society as we know it is doomed.”
MR.DEPUTY: "An average class. They
show good discipline."
TRANSLATION: “No initiative, no
creativity, no real ability, but at least they understand their
MR. HILL: "I enjoyed them more the
first day than the last."
TRANSLATION: This has been the longest
year of my life.”
MRS. DANNETTELLE: "I have enjoyed
teaching this year more than I have for several years, thanks to my very
good freshmen students."
TRANSLATION: “Maybe if I flatter them,
they’ll go away and leave me alone!!”
MR. SINN: "Our ninth grade pupils are
anxious to move on to grade ten in the fine new building provided for
them. As they advance into their school programs, many new and
challenging areas will confront them. More will be required of them
academically and socially, and responsibilities will be multi-plied as
they respond to the demands of mature living,. They will discover their
many abilities which thus far have gone unnoticed and unused, They will
also realize that perhaps the greatest happiness they have ever achieved
is to be found in the realization of a task well done,
Yes, it is indeed a fine group of ninth grade
pupils who will find that the future has untold possibilities waiting
for the individual who will prepare himself and be ready when the
opportunity presents itself."
TRANSLATION: Most of these immature
clowns have already reached their peak. They’ll probably trash the
new high school building, too. Let’s just push them along, and get
them out of our hair as soon as possible.”
MR. BARNES: "I am sure that with much
hard work and perseverance the ninth grade class of 1961 can, through
the year, maintain a lead of one full year over the eighth grade class
of 1961. Seriously, the ninth grade class has shown what they are
capable of and I am sure they will do even better in the future. Good
luck and happy new year."
TRANSLATION: “These duds haven’t shown us
anything so far. There’s no way but up for these folks. I wonder
what they’ll be like in 40 years?”
