School Story

Fondly recall having finals cancelled in the 9th grade.... 12th grade French class walking down three flights of stairs then getting into Mrs. Neufeld's car to continue speaking French so we wouldn't miss a second of class during all those bomb threats... scary walks through the underground passages between buildings with most of the lights blown out.... watching kids overturn a police car while in math class.... marching on City Hall... walking home up all those hills after tennis matches...
