We often look back on the past with a rosy, nostalgic glow, remembering the good old days when computers, cellphones, and even calculators were inconceivable developments! We learned from books, newspapers, and our elders. The library was our fount of knowledge.
Things weren’t easier, but they were much simpler.
We remember the early morning walks to school, and gleefully running back home at lunch to catch our favorite radio or television program. We recall the clack of typewriters and the puffs of chalk-cloud as one unlucky student clapped the blackboard erasers at the end of the day. Our teachers elicited from us a mix of awe, fear, and respect.
School taught us many things, but not everything was learned from books. Education was so much more than just the hours we spent sitting quietly in rows.
We learned about people and built relationships. We learned to love, to communicate our thoughts, and discovered things about ourselves that shaped who we are today. We plumbed the depths of our curiosity and used our hands to create, leaving high school well-rounded and capable, ready to take on the world.
From physical education, team sports, band practice, choir, camping trips, Friday night dances, and prom night, we relish the moments spent with friends, exploring, growing, living in the moment.
