Work day provided students with a choice of going to school and getting paint and dirt all over them or staying in their warm beds and sleeping late.

Most of the approximately 215 students who did work arrived by noon. The largest crowd of the day gathered in the cafeteria at lunch for pizza paid for by the administration and Pepsi provided by Student Council.

“I’m always impressed with students that show their concern in such a positive way,” said Mrs. Sherry Price, Student Council sponsor.

Among the individual improvements was a fresh coat of blue paint in the accounting room. The band room was given a Bicentennial look, and the girls’ dressing room took on a brighter appearance as Mrs. Carol Brunner’s work team painted desks, trash cans, benches and the door.

The major clean up consisted of wiping away the cobwebs and grime that had accumulated since the last work day. But probably the biggest clean up of the day took place after all the workers got home and took a look at themselves.
