Cyndi Brown and her horse invade the outdoor lounge one fall afternoon. Prairie’s varsity football cheerleaders practiced all summer long to prepare for the season. In the fall, they won first place in competition sponsored by Westdale Mall, and were later highlighted on a T.V. program. “ Nowyou’ve Really Rone It!” How about them Hawks!?! Those Cedar Rapids Prairie Fighting Hawks. It’s not just a saying reserved only for the University of Iowa anymore. It’s taken some time, but the formerly renowned Cow Pie High has turned all the way around! So, congratulations! You’ve really gotten it all together! At last, after so many years, you’ve finally got the year. The year that Cedar Rapids Prairie came into its own. Opening — 3

mma Work is not necessarily over when school hours are finished. For many students, part-time jobs, and various other activities, provide opportunities to relax, enjoy themselves, and participate and learn by getting involved. On a given night, one might expect to be doing any number of things. Maybe sitting at home, cramming for a Social Studies Seminar test, crashed out on the couch after a rough practice, getting ready for the date you’ve been waiting for the whole week, or talking on the phone for hours. The average student usually spends his evenings in a combination of activities, ranging from attending a school sponsored event to sleeping, and generally leads a relatively normal social life. Those students with jobs, however, are forced to alter their schedules often, passing up chances to have fun because . . . “ Sorry. I have to work.” Holding down a job while in high school can sometimes be difficult, yet also rewarding. Reasons for putting up with the hassles that a job can bring are varied, still, the biggest influence is the money! , Junior Nick Lehmkuhl expressed dissatisfaction with his job at Bishop’s, “ If it wasn’t for the money, I’d quit! Minimum wage is $3.35 an hour, but I’m making about $3.60 an hour now.” The Target department store employs many students from Prairie, one of which is Holli Kemmerer. A senior, Holli works as a cashier for $5.05 an hour, basically earning money for college and a car. Though certainly interested in the money, Cynthia Dennis had other important reasons for getting a job. ‘Since I hurt my knee, I couldn’t really go out for any sports. I needed something to occupy my time, so I got a job at Jack’s. You get to meet all kinds of interesting people that you wouldn’t run into everyday, and having a job has helped me handle school better. I’ve learned to relate to different types of people in a positive way.” Whatever the reason for getting a job in the first place, jobs play a major role in the life of many students at Prairie.

Triumphantly, several elated members of the hardworking varsity football team display their prize. Enthusiasm ran high all through the school as Prairie students made it clear that they had . . . Spirit to Spare Weekly pep assemblies during the football season and throughout the year, planned by the cheerleaders and pom pon girls, provided us with entertainment while firing everyone up for the big games. Highlighted by amusing skits and routines such as “ Workin’ in a Coal Mine,” and “ That’s a Fact Jack!” , races and countdown cheering contests between the classes, and of course the lively pep talks from the coaches, the assemblies always ended with the playing of the “ Prairie Fight Song” to further encourage us to get out there and rally behind our Hawks! Particularly special was the assembly back at school the night after we had won state. The caravan of buses and cars, their headlights stretching for miles, finally overflowed the parking lot and thousands of happy people packed into the gym to honor the team. Victorious in the semi- finals, Prairie fans began promoting their Hawks! Cynthia Dennis went all out with T-shirt , buttons and hat for the allschool pep assembly before the final game. Totally fired up, Sandy Zach, Mary Larsh, Angie Joens and Joni Bruns get crazy at Iowa City Regina. 6 — Student Life V f f -

Everybody went to the not just your friends — and all of us were having so much fun together!” Another favorite assembly for some was hosted by the witty Don Finn and the ever-humorous Bret Wagner. Pauline’s birthday was celebrated as she received a standing ovation along with a rousing chorus of “ Happy Birthday To You.” One sophomore student was so taken in by Bret and Don’s antics that it was obvious it had been the first time she’d heard them perform. “ I just couldn’t stop laughing,” she said. Whether you attended the athletic events to cheer on our teams, to play in the pep band, or just to have fun with friends, the players created that extra advantage and helped :he teams along the road to success. the spirited support the fans gave For nearly every game, at home or away expectant fans watch the Prairie - Regina football game. .

= Do you remember the first day of school? Looking down the English wing it seemed like an endless projection of doors! What was your reaction to the combination Typewriter; T.V. in the resource room? The walls in the English wing and the Apple II computer are two of the new added attractions to the academics this year. Academics have also added many other features to the program. There was a technical addition made by the ShopII class. They built a dust collector on to the south end of the building. There were also many new faces around the school. Even the faculty members that we are used to seeing may be presenting different courses. 4# There was even a new teacher who brought an old subject a new script, meaning, Mrs. Keefer brought many new ideas to the Home Economics Department. Mr. Jensen became a permanent understudy for Mr. Hoffman. While Mr. Wessel is a great new supporting actor in the Social Studies area. Even though there may have been some new lines added to the Academics script, the show still has the plot . . . Learning! Academics — 11

THE P.E. ALTERNATIVE This year there were many different changes in the P.E. Department. One change that is fairly new to Prairie High School is Senior Option P.E. Senior Option is when the student chooses a subject in which they have to participate in once a week. Those subjects can be anything from horseback riding to roller skating. The student has to compile a notebook about his subject. Another alternative to PE is First Aid and Nutrition. This is a fairly new course taught by Mick Mattiace. Not too many students who have taken first aid have any complaints, except for the fact that first aid is only V2 credit. Students feel that there is more work involved with first aid than there is in a regular P.E. class. This year in P.E. they added the use of video tapes to help improve the learning process. ft U-rk Aboue: No, this is not the battle of the network stars!

What’s Cookin’? There are new faces in the HomeEc Department this year. Keefer, one new face, said, Trudi “ The students are friendly and cooperative for the most part.” Mrs. Keefer teaches housing, where the students learn about renting a house and what to look for when buying one, as well as decorating techniques. Foods is another area Mrs. Keefer finds enjoyable. for students. This class is a favorite They learn how to prepare food as well as purchase it, and how to prepare it. “ I had a higher expectancy of the work the students were able to do,” responded Keefer when asked if she had e x p e r i e n c e d a n y disappointments. Linda Sadler, who was working at the Junior High last year in the Home Ec Department, left to have a baby as did Patti Miles this year. Sadler returned to teach Independent Living and Foods classes for Miles first semester. Independent Living is a course where students learn how to live on their own, do laundry, and the basics of preparing a meal. This course is an overall teaching of Home-Ec, it covers just about every aspect of it. Patti Miles will be teaching classes of Child Development when she returns, where you learn the process of a child growing up in different kinds of environments. This year will be fun for Miles, Sadler, and Keefer. They will all see how students enjoy the Home Ec classes they have chosen. h Sam Wilson and Marlon Blaha look in a way that says “ I’m not sure about this, how about you?’’ Trudi Keefer 16 — Home Ec Colleen Vavroch, Marie Schmitz, and Joyce Snyder hesitate to dig in as Nancy Gilbert and ,v Sec/r-e/ go for it.

Library Gets New Ideas Becky Kleinhesselink is the new PHS Librarian this year. She is assisted by Jocell Southward, one of the library’ s paraprofessionals. Joceil has been at Prairie for 6 years. Becky came this past year and she said “I really enjoy it, the students are older than whatI taught before.” Joceil and Becky are making changes in the library. They are getting some input from students on books they would like to see added to the library. Joceil said “ Kids are more willing to work,” this really makes her happy. Becky would like to add new magazines, she said “I ’ve purchased some of the books that students have requested. There is also a game that was new this year; this was designed to help the students to use the library sources, and be able to find the correct materials when needing them. them more independent, and eager to learn.

There’s plenty of work to go around in publications. Students work on both the yearbook and newspaper. The first dimension tackled in the class, is finding a theme for the yearbook. Staff members also brainstorm for interesting articles to run in the newspaper. Another dimension to the class is photography. The photographers are a very valuable asset.

Social Studies Sees New Face Social Studies is a combination of politics, economics, history , geography, and human relations. The Social Studies Department at P.H.S. offers classes from understanding human behavior to learning about the physical layout of the world. To teach these topics the teachers must put in a lot of hard work to be able to explain them in their lectures. This year has only one change to the department. Mr. Wessel, who taught P.E. at the Junior High, was moved to the High School to fill in a vacancy. He was faced with a new concept, teaching a “ book” subject, which required him to do a lot more preparation and experiment with facing a classroom of students. He felt it was easier and more comfortable for him, already knowing most of his students from the Junior High. This year didn’t have as many major events involving politics or economics, but a few students were offered the chance to travel to New York to tour the United Nations. Seven P.H.S. students got involved in this activity. Far Above: Mr. Oertel discusses politics with Lorie Novak, Brian Lynch, and Vicki Schaefer.

If you make it through these two, then you may wish to go on to higher and more advanced algebra classes. Even trigonometry or calculus.

Vicki Miller takes a blood sample from her finger for biology. A new year in Science has inspired teachers to set new goals for themselves and their students. We asked each Science teacher this question,“ What is new in Science this year?” Life Science teacher Mr . Jensen replied, “ We’ve changed a lot of things; Sophomores work more together than they do independently, this way it keeps everyone at the same level.” Biology teacher Mr. Osland stated, “I ’ ve been using a few methods this year. I have been emphasizing an areaif the students seem interested in that area.I add new activities as I think of them; it changes from year to year.” Chemistry teacher Mr. Rienets answered, “ In the labsI try and let the kids have more time to think up and do more lab experiments. Lab time is often limited.” We talked to students of these Science classes to get their outlook on what Science is like to them this year. Life Science Student Angie Neis replied, “ My favorite unit is Birds and Mammals, because I like to learn of new onesI never heard of before.” When we asked Biology student Wes Durow the same question he answered,“ It’s a good class. It’ s interesting looking into crayfish. I like Mr. Osland, he’s a good teacher.” A surprised Mr. Osland is caught checking papers.

Mini Courses The annual end-of-the-year mini courses were a big success again thanks to the help of faculty and students. There was some doubt as to whether mini courses would be held this year, but due to the efforts of a few students who raised money for the candy sale, mini courses were once again made available. Thirty-one mini courses were offered to sophomores and juniors, ranging from habitat to table games. Mini courses were enjoyed by all who participated because they stimulated positive student-teacher relations and made good use of the time that was left at the end of the year.

These groups seem to get people involved in extracurricular activities that may not necessarily be sportsminded. They have a chance to promote “ school spirit” in their own way. Being part of a club or an organization lets people show off their different talents that they may have. Membership in a group gives students a chance to perform. Students may also actually receive credit for their role in some of these organizations, such as band and choir. So, as you will see, there are many different things for people to get interested in other than the typical school work or sports . . .

The girls on the cheerleading squads did them. The cheerleaders this year really gave it their all. They devoted their free time to cheerleading. They put in extra hours to really do their best.

Current Actions Follow Old Traditions This year’s student council has continued many fine old traditional activities, and has started a few new ones of their own. Some of the activities that continued are school dances, homecoming events, the a two hundred student President Bruce dollar scholarship for graduating seniors, Christmas candy give away, council exchanges, carnation sales on Valentine’s Day, and continued Friday morning doughnut sales. This year’s officers, Kimpston, Vice President Tammy Karasek, Secretary Kathy Potter, and started some Treasurer Ann Oldorf, new ideas of their own. They got a new telephone installed outside the school building, a new Gary Leeper memorial trophy case, sponsored the RIF program, started the student council retreats, helped with the organization of career days, started the outdoor lounge committee, and started to reorganize the school constitution. The student council did their best to make sure that the old traditions were kept up, but also put in a few new ones of their own.

P Being in choir means being involved! Choir is not a class where a person can only go for their scheduled time and really “ e in choir. First of all there are lessons that every choir member must attend in order to get credit. These are usually scheduled for ne mod each cycle. There are about 5-10 people in each lesson group. The reasons for the lessons are so that Mr . Price, ~e choir director, can work with students on a more personal level and also to see how members are progressing. Your * rade is based partly on your attendance to your lessons and how you participate in them. Another part of choir that every member is involved in is Coffee House. This is a musical written by the members of choir and everyone must participate in it to receive credit. The show is put on for two nights and after the last performance iere is a cast party and so the effort is well worth it. The Choir Club is a very important part of the music department. Members of the Choir Club join at the beginning of the pear. The Choir Club mainly does a lot of planning and organization for the choir. Even parents are an important part of choir. The parents of all students in choir make up what is called, Music Parents ' -.e Music Parents play a big role in making choir and its activities a success. This year’s Music Parents sponsored a dance :: everyone grades 1-12. The band that played was Top Syde and the money raised from the dance will help the choir , -embers going on the Florida cruise this summer. 5o being in choir is really being involved!

The class of ’ 83 swept the titie all three years. These class spirit awards are something that the juniors will always be proud of. This year has been different for the juniors, a lot of people are getting jobs. Also, some people have notice: that the juniors aren’ t really “ clique;." anymore. Another point in concensus Right now we are is that our minds are more into sports than academics. working to get prom off the ground. Joni Bruns states that her most memorable thing about this year was the day she was initiated into Girls Letterclub. “ Well first,” she explains Michelle Evans and Kindee Dean show that they/ have caught, “ That Junior Spirit! ” “ they made us get up on the tables the library and sing and dance, then I turned around and there was JoC * J.

From Kindergarten Roundup to Graduation Your senior year in high school can be a very difficult time. This is your last year of security. The last year of participating in school events and activities. After graduation, you are faced with the question of what to do and where to go. Many of this year’s seniors have been laid off and job prospects are scarce. Money is tight and high paying jobs are hard to come by. The seniors have worked hard to make the most of their final year in school. “ Kindergarten seems so long ago. It is a big relief to finally get done with thirteen years of school, ” said Kelly Lamb. — Teri Bennett added, May 23, “ We have been working for years for that one special day 1982.” “ Sometimes, I wish I could go back to junior high and start all over,” stated Tommy Johnson. Many seniors like the feeling of security that they have in high school. They have a roof over their heads and food to eat. A lot of students have a job so they can earn extra spending money. This money is usually spent on movies, gas, clothes, or on their car. Kelly Blackwell confessed, “ I’ll miss the security I have in knowing that I go to school every day where things are familiar and I can still act like a kid.” “ Everything I dreamed of happened this year,” said Brian McNeal. “ Prairie is really ‘Someplace Special’ ” added D. J. Holvenstot. “ This year was special to me because we won volleyball games against teams we had never beaten before. We came to school late or skipped school,” commented Kathy Nearad. “ I think I learned the most as a senior, My junior year I just wasn’t into school,” replied Kevin Hadenfeldt. Todd Salat likes being a senior because “ He’s king!” Sam Selzer feels that the seniors run the school. Curt Woods has another view of the senior year at P.H.S. “ I served my time, gave it my best, and now I’ll move on to bigger and better things!” Brook Weldon says he can’t wait to get out of high school and “ start life.” Dot Pospiscil is the teacher that influenced the majority of students according to a class survey. Scott Douglas said his most enjoyable class was World History because “ Jeff Wessel is a Cub fan.” Most seniors picked sex roles or consumer ec as their favorite class. Marlon Blaha and Tim Appleget said they like P.E. and recess. Chris Gallagher liked “ being crazy and getting away with it.” “ When you act goofey, teachers say it’s just senioritis,” stated Lisa Campbell. Doug Blair best sums up the feelings of seniors when he says, “ We’ve made it through all our years of school and it looks like we are going to graduate. We want to and then again we don’t want to.” How will we feel after we graduate? Will we be glad we did or will we wish we were back to the safety and security of ‘Someplace Special’? i, FAR ABOVE: Is Tami Karasek getting dressed for a night out with the guys?
