A few of the things I remember about Junior High:
1. My Junior High School included 7th - 9th grade students.
2. Our school mascot was a Cougar Cub. (The high school mascot was a Cougar.) The school colors were maroon and gray.3. In PE we had a section on gymnastics. (That was my favorite part of PE.) My least favorite part of PE were calisthenics and running a mile.
4. Each class was in a different room with a different teacher. In 8th grade I had a teacher who had a big mustache and looked like a lot Mr. Potato head. In 7th grade I had an english teacher named Mr. Shrek. Rumor was he came to class stoned on occasion. (He didn't return as a teacher the next year.)
5. We had a lot of school assemblies mostly before home games to promote school spirit.
6. They lumped art into a quarterly elective series that also included wood-shop and home economics. I was lucky to get Art the first quarter. After Art was over I transferred to choir.
7. The 7th grade choir students got to go on a "tour" to local grade schools. We sang for the students. (It was the choir teachers way of recruiting future choir members.)
