JOHN GILBERT APRIL
We have a rather special senior in our class this year. John has
been studying with regular textbooks at home in order to receive his
high school diploma. It has taken a long time and an extraordinary
amount of effort, and John deserves a tremendous amount of credit.

The post graduates, who have returned to high school after grad-

We, the class of 1 964, entered KINDERGARTEN in the fall of 1951 . We began our
theatrical reputation with a Christmas play, in which Richard Hendrick and Phina Borgeson
were featured as Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus, respectively; while the rest of the class, taste-
fully attired in red pajamas with flap bottoms, portrayed elves. Our next major production
was on the last day of school. The members of the class acted out various nursery rhymes.
We moved on to FIRST GRADE and the esoteric pleasures of Dick, Jane and Spot. We
also performed in the school operetta, in which each class had a part. The girls in our
class wore crepe paper bows in their hair.
In SECOND GRADE we performed in another operetta. During this year we also vis-
ited the fire station and were taken on a tour through the building. Children in Miss
Pel ley's room used to look out the window at the construction of the new gym.
We entered THIRD GRADE in the newly-built wing of the elementary school. Mrs.
Chase finally carried out her threat, and put adhesive tape on Fizz Richards' mouth, be-
cause he spoke out of turn too much. . . .Mary Lynn Edwards, Betsy Yu ill, and Donna
Prince hid Miss Clarke's car keys three times and wouldn't tell her where the keys were,
so that each time Miss Clarke had to have a new set made. . . . All the pupils in Miss
Clarke's class learned the Preamble to the Constitution and recited it in a group. . . .
Andy Crowe used his magnifying glass to light fires of leaves and paper.
In FOURTH GRADE, we had a Columbus Day assembly, in which we first sang the
song which contained the deathless line, "In 1492, he sai led the ocean blue .... " An-
other assembly that year was on Christmas customs. Led by Miss Wren's class, we each
held a poster and recited a poem about our own customs. Phina Borgeson and Jean
Baker were mistresses of ceremony. We also had square dances in the gymnasium of the
old high school. This year also marked the beginning of our first honor group, the Eager
Beavers, whose members were Phina Borgeson, Steven Hansen, Carol Govoni, Katy
Jokinen, Jean Baker, and Alice Collins .
FIFTH GRADE was highlighted by a field trip with the entire class to the Whaling
Museum in New Bedford. . . .Felice Tasche arrived in November to become our first (and

which Fizz Richards and Cathy DeLorenzo played piano solos. . . .We had another field
trip in the spring. This time we visited the pumping station with Mrs. Turner, our nature
teacher from the Audubon Society.
The most important event during our SIXTH GRADE year was our Junior Tournament of
Plays. Mrs. O'Neil's room, Mr. Staples' room, and Mr. Queeny's room all put on plays.
Mr. Queeny's room won with "The Trial of Billy Scott." Rip Cheney and Cherry Bishop
were voted best actor and best actress, respectively. . . .We went on two field trips this
year. The first was to the Museum of Science in Boston, and the second was a bike ride
to the beach for lunch . Mr. Queeny accompanied us on this trip ... . On the last day of
school, Mr. Queeny, who had been sick, arranged our social studies projects on the side-
walk, and handed them to us as we came out the door.
We moved on to SEVENTH GRADE in the old high school. We elected members of our
class to the Junior Student Council. From the Council members, Fizz Richards became
Vice-President, and Bob Jones, Treasurer. . . .We again participated in a Tournament of

prize in the spelling bee that year, and Donna Prince won first prize in the pupil -prepared
section of the Junior High Speech Contest. . . .Miss Celeste Travers, our English teacher,
