By the time we are juniors. things calm down a little bit but not for long. Once we're seniors . " senioritus" hits in full force! All through high school we have shared hundreds of experiences with the people in our lives. We enjoyed activities and adventures together, as well as suffering through tough times with the help of friends, teachers, and family.

i Mr. Leeper, A Friend to All. A teaching career of 15 years is a small part of one’s life. It’s the one part . that Mr. Gary Leeper left with those here at Prairie when he died September 9, 1980. Mr. Leeper began his teaching career here at Prairie in 1965, after graduating with his B.A. from Wartburg College in Waverly, Iowa. He taught physical education at the high school every morning and earth science at the junior high every afternoon until 1968. If he wasn’t busy enough with P.E. and science, he was also assistant track coach. He retained this position until 1975, and then took over as head track coach the following year. Mr. Leeper was personally interested in self-hypnosis and he carried this on into his coaching. He used this as a form of relaxation for his track team. t i t Far Above: Mr. Leeper got involved in as many school related activities as possible. Here he is carving the meat at the Pig Roast with Mr. Hining and Mr. Worsfold.

A Fifth Season Never to Be Forgotten I a iiJ!^rifiiiii 11$ •* EiOJiEfElIMKuausu 11 * a V I i * ILM >. i I For many students at Prairie, having a “ fifth season” is an important part of school life. They need a time to relax, and time to do and see things that they enjoy. School life isn’t just filled with endless homework assignments, biology projects, and semester exams. There’s always that weekend date or dance to look forward to. Prairie students get involved in sports, plays, music, clubs, art, and many other things. Outside of school they have parties, cruise, go out with friends to movies, for pizza, and just have a good time. Not all students choose to spend their free time in school related activities. Many participate in church groups, Junior Achievement, 4-H, Y-teams, and various sports and hobbies. Many of these students receive awards and recognition that is not acknowledged by the school. The season of leisure is an important part of school life for the students at Prairie. _ Far Above: "Vere de doors to go?" ask Bohemie Loren Lippman drags his donkey up to meet her. carpenters Tami Karisek .

I Philosophy Important to P.H.S. School Board Prairie High School operates on a phi - losophy made by the school board. A 7member school board is responsible for developing the Prairie High School philosophy. The school board’s philosophy is that each student is unique. They believe that students should be in a learning environment to develop his or her full potential for life. Board members are elected for service every 3 years. Mr. Harger, a board member, said he ran to help straighten out budget problems so that students would receive the best possible education. Mr. Boland, School Board President, said “some of the decisions they make, are setting the curriculum for the school system, and making general decisions about the money problems.” % i i Above: Dr. William Bach, Superintendent.

Support Can Be Beautiful The support staff has the big job at Prairie High School of keeping the building running smoothly. All the paraprofessionals, secretaries, cooks, and custodians help this school to be more efficient. Some changes have been made in the High School office. Mrs. Connie Goldsberry is the new face on the block. She is in charge of all attendance and is Mr. Jennings’ secretary. Mrs. Sharon Bruns is the principal’s secretary. Her days are filled with all the tasks necessary to keep the office in business. Room 11 also has a new face. Phil Britcher monitors that room. A lot of people know Phil from the Jr. High where she taught P.E. “It’s not the same as teaching. A lot of paper work is involved but the contact with the kids assigned for various reasons make it an enjoyable job.” Joceil Southward is the paraprofessional in the library. She is always around to help you find the material or book you need if you can’t find it yourself. Eileen Grinder is another important person. She is the secretary for the counselors. She helps maintain the organization in the counselors’ office. Mary Hynek is also new to our building. She is the nurse for the high school and the other five buildings on campus. There used to be two nurses in the district but now Mary takes care of all the buildings. Vicki Hawkins continues to take care of all school store business. The custodians and the cooks have a big job to do. The custodians spend many hours trying to keep this building picked-up and cleaned. Every time you turn around, you’ll see a custodian picking up after the students who use this building. The cooks have to cook for over 600 people, and while some lunches are better than others, they are constantly faced with the question of what they can make that is new and what will they eat?

Sophomores Enjoy Lock-In As in the past four years, sophomore orientation, for the Prairie High School held a sophomore lock-in. The lock-in was used to introduce the incoming sophomores to the high school. The lock-in was enjoyable as well as educational for the students and their parents. The students were shown their way around the building, and introduced to new teachers. They also caught up on summer gossip. Ken Steine, Principal, says that the lock-in is a lot of fun for the teachers as well as students. He also received a lot of positive feedback from the community. Activities began with a potluck dinner at 6:00 pm on August 5. Registration and paying fees followed the dinner. At 9:00, parents left and the fourth annual lock-in officially started. S t uden t s t hen found t he i r homerooms, and met homeroom teachers. Also, Mr. Stiene welcomed everybody and gave a little orientation on what the high school was going to be like.

From 12:00 to 3:00 a.m., a dance was held to get the sophs acquainted again. At 3:00 to 5:00 a.m., students had the choice of watching one of two movies or sleeping. At 5:00 a.m. breakfast was served. Finally, at 6:30 a.m., it was time to go home. This is one time that parents didn’t mind if their children were out all night!

Vicki Harris and Scott Boots say that parts of programs that use money will have to be cut in order for our economy to improve. On :ne other hand, Scott Daugherty thinks that the economy will become more stable and also that the inflation rate will go down. Theresa Christensen has a similar thought. She believes that with good ideas the economy can be built back up. Kathy Potter feels that we will have to go through some rough times. Patti Stallman thinks that the economy will do one of two things. It will either completely recover or else it will be a total mess. Cindy Lantiser’s main concern is that jobs will be harder to find and that it will be too expensive to go out on dates or to just have fun with friends. . Others believe that prices will go higher and the economy will fall apart Juniors 23

It doesn’t mean I’ll get drafted right away.” Scott Joens and Bret Wagner say that they don’t want to, but have to. Curt Woods thought it would be all right if we don’t go to war. John Volk summed up the feelings of the majority of those interviewed by saying that, something we’ll probably be glad we did later.” Yet, “It’s a good idea, there are still some Juniors such as Clark Humble who don’t plan on registering at all. “I don’t know what I’ll do,” says Clark, “and if you think about it, neither does anyone else.” 26 Juniors

Changing While in junior high, students got an impression of what they imagined high school would be like. We asked some juniors how their expectations compared to their current feelings about Prairie High School now that they’ve had a couple of years to experience it. Curt Woods says, “It’s different, not as hectic, and people are a lot different than they were.” Pam Meyer and Carol Buresh are having more fun than they thought they would. Cindi Brown said, “I thought I would get picked on more, and I’d have a lot more homework ... and I was right!” Julie Bell and Rob Schorg were both a little unsure about coming up to the high school at first. Though most have adapted well to the high school, nobody said it was easy. In fact, John Volk comments, “It’s the hardest thing I’ve had to go through!” Juniors 29

Discover Talented Junior Kitty Gromman has recently made herself known to the entire student body at Prairie High School by winning the school sponsored poster contest “Education Steps to a Better Tomorrow.” Her prize winning poster was put on display for everyone to see, and she received many well-deserved comments as to how nice of a job she had done. This is not the first time, however, that her work has been highly praised. Kitty, at age 16, has been interested, and involved in art for a long time. “I knew I wanted to be an artist since Iwas 5 years old in tot lot,” says Kitty. She’s entered many projects in various competitions and won numerous awards. Each year, Kitty enters the “Hobby Show.” The Hobby Show is a competition between the Cedar Rapids area schools displaying the talents and hobbies of kids from kindergarten through 12th grade. The show is designed to allow kids to begin showing off their hobbies, and encourage them to keep them for later on in life. “I started taking things to the ‘Hobby Show’ when I was in 2nd grade, but I didn’t enter any sketches until I was in 5th grade. I have yet to win a blue ribbon at the Hobby Show, but I hope to get one this year,” Kitty said optimistically. Kitty plans to become either a commercial ar - tist or a cartoonist. When she gets older, she would like to own a craft shop, so that she could sell pictures that she wouldn’t normally be able to sell, and buy her materials wholesale!

Hard Work Pays Off “The only way a team gets better is to wrestle the tougher competition,” were the comments from Prairie Head Wrestling Coach Jim Kimball, and that’s just what the Hawks did. The grapplers battled with top-ranked Iowa City West, Waterloo West, and Marion, and when the end result came, Prairie placed 3rd in the districts and tied for 14th in the state. The highlights of the season were tremendous. Kimball commented that, “You take a young team like ours and you’ve got success. The kids kept working harder, and the price paid off. The team improved more than any team improved that I have seen in the years I’ve coached.” The Hawks had a state tourney feeling when they wrestled in the Five Seasons Classic, Seasons Center. held at the Five Below: Setting up a takedown is Prairie’s state champion Mike Hahesy in the finals of the Class third time during the year to wrestle his opponeJ 3A State Wrestling Tournament.

Old Faces in New Places This year in cross-country and sophomore football there were two new coaches, but they weren’t new to Prairie basketball fans.Head varsity basketball coach Jeff Wessel was also the new head coach for boys’ The new head sophomore football coach was Kevin Behrends, who doubles as the assistant varsity basketball coach. Coach Behrends, in his first year as head sophomore coach, led his team to a record of 8-0-1, bringing with that record the E.C.I.C. championship. The only blemish on their record came from a 0-0 tie with Marion. The cross-country team had very few juniors or seniors and therefore the team was made up of young men with very little experience. Coach Wessel believes that with a little experience and good leadership from the few seniors next year that Prairie should have a fine team in ’81. cross-country.

This year the Girls’ Varsity Basketball Team learned that work in the offseason can really pay off. The team practiced about 2 times a week last summer to improve their skills. They improved on the 3 wins and 17 losses of the year before, to 15 wins and 6 losses this season. Willingness to improve and dedication were big factors in the success of the team. There was balance in both the guard and forward courts. The team had a lot of close games and came out the winners in all of them. Mr. Hoffmann, head varsity coach said, “The highlights of the season were beating LaSalle twice and beating topranked Jefferson in the last regular season game.” Both Coach Jensen and Hoffmann think that next year will be a rebuilding year because they lost 7 valuable seniors who were regular starters. Coach Hoffman says, “There will be a direct correlation between the work in the off-season and next year’s showing.” Both coaches feel that the underclassmen could play an important role in the team’s success. The following awards were given: Laurie Welty — Zalesky Team All-Conference, 1st Team All-Metro, 1st Al l -State Honorable Mention, and 2nd leading scorer in the metro area. — 1st Team All-Metro, 1st Team All-Conference, lead in steals in conference.

They came back with two Outstanding awards, two Excellent awards, one Superior award, and the Spirit Stick on one night. The sophomore cheerleaders sold tshirts with the varsity girls during the year. All the girls did a great job of getting students and faculty enthused for the games.

The traditional mural that has been on the back wall in the choir room for six years has finally disappeared. A new look has taken its place. The main color is capri green with the word “music” in big yellow print. Near the left corner of the room is a painted ball that is orange on one side and it fades out to yellow shades. Staff lines go the length of the wall and connect to a bar at the end. Many choir students helped with this project . Small group contest was held at Prairie on March 28. The groups that went to contest were: Madrigal, Girls’ Sextet, Double Boys’ Quartet, Like and Unlike Duets and Solos. Special thanks went to Roxene Schreiber, Ricki Hayes, Sheila Pewitt, and Kelyn King who accompanied the groups and soloists.

One of the Best Approximately eighty members make up one of the best bands Prairie High School has seen in the last five years, according to Bill Henley, who directed the band during the 1980-81 school year. Most of the band members part i c i p a t e d i n s m a l l g r o u p vocal/instrumental contest, which was held here at Prairie this year. The groups and soloists received 23 division one ratings, 11 division two ratings, and 2 division three ratings. This year the band took a spring tour to Decorah, Cresco, and Fayette to perform for other students and prepare for contest. The trip helped the band but was also relaxing, according to Mr. Henley.

Camp Helpful to Both Pom-pon and Flag The season for both flag girls and pom-pon girls started with camp. The flag girls, sponsored by Gloria Henley, attended a camp in June, at the University of Northern Iowa in Cedar Falls. This was the first year for the flag girls to attend a camp. Many new skills and routines were learned. Laurie Eden commented that, “camp was worthwhile; it helped us a lot. We learned some good routines, how to improve marching, and some new ways to twirl.” The flag girls march with the band during half-time of home football games. To prepare for the games, the squad practiced twice a week in the morning and every day during band. The squad came a long way this year. Camp helped them to improve. New uniforms gave them a new look. The pom-pon squad went to a NCA camp in August, at Iowa State University in Ames. This was the second year for the squad to attend a camp. The girls did well, receiving over 40 ribbons, 2 spirit sticks and also qualified as a “Super Star” squad. Many new rolls, and routines were learned, along with kicks, ripples, pom-pon passes, mounts . The squad’s season ran most of the year. They performed with the band at football games, half-time of boys’ and girls’ basketball games, and several pep assemblies. They also performed at their first wrestling meet. To prepare for games, practices were often held 5 days a week and before games. One of the highlights of the season was a clinic at Coe College. The squad received two first place trophies. One was an overall trophy, the other for their skill division. Captains of this year’s squad were: Suzie Gallagher, Kim McConaughy, and Susan Reid. The squad improved a lot during the year with the help of camp and their two new sponsors, Phyllis Britcher and Mary Hynek.

No, not a game, a play! Or rather, a musical. This year’s production was highly acclaimed and praised as being very entertaining and well performed. The “ Pajama Game” was about a pajama factory located in Cedar Rapids, whose workers were demanding a seven-and-a-half-cents raise. When denied the wage increase they threatened to strike, but the strike was thwarted when the new superintendent finally urged the boss to agree to the higher wages. Among the highlights of the show were the knife throwing act in the picnic scene, Hernando’s Hideaway, and the Dream scene. The singing, dancing and acting were excellent, something all of those involved should be proud of. The band, light and sound crews, directors and choreographers also did a fantastic job and are to becommended.

Coffeehouse t This year’s annual Coffeehouse production was performed November 7 and 8 in the high school gym. Entitled “Dr. Rock and Mr. Roll Out the Barrell,” the play centered around the conflicts that arose when two musical groups were scheduled to perform at a big vacation resort on the same weekend. Then, a mysterious phantom promoted havock by kidnapping women, until Chanet Woo, daughter of the notorious detective Mr. Woo, solved the mystery of the missing ladies and disclosed that in reality, the leader of the rock and roll band was transformed into a hideous phantom whenever he heard polka music from the other group, Far Above Left: Matthew Clothier, readying for the take-off.

Fortunately, a couple of band buffs apprehended him before any harm was done. Once again, Chanet gave the facts, explaining how his scheming plan was to be. Written and performed by choir members, the play was a great success, mixing music, romance, sorrow and anguish in a drama that will be remembered as ‘one of the best.’ Coffeehouse 121
