Wf DIVE INTO LIFE
AT P.K. YONGE!
Dive into life at P.K. Yonge' At this
pool you'll find all different kinds of
people. Some are tall, others are
short. Some are fat, yet some skin-
ny. We are all different in one way
or another. This is P.K. Yonge.
Many who come to this pool start
at the shallow end, then there are
those at the deep end. Wherever.
you start, you are not alone There
are people keeping you afloat. At
P.K. you will find a pool of
friends-you may think \ou are
about to go under, but it seems
someone is always there to pull
you up again. .. i
Now it seems as if we %,ere u.st
learning to enjoy the water and it's
time to hop out and dry off There
is an ocean of life ahead of us. But
no matter how hard we try, none
of us will ever completely dry off i'" -
from this pool. It will always be a
part of our lives. The splash we
made is a part of us forever.

When the term "P.K. Family" is
used, it can be literally applied to
the lifers. For thirteen years
they've been together, grown to-

gether, and changed together.
There is an unmistakably special
bond between all lifers.
WE MADE IT!
We finally made it! Through all the
good times and bad times we
stuck together. We made friend-
ships that will last forever. The par-

tions made it worth the work. Our

Shannon Dorsey is a junior with
rather unusual pets. She and her
brother Craig lay claim to six
wolves. Shannon grew interested
in wolves because they are an
endangered species. About three
years ago, the Dorseys acquired
their first wolf from a friend. They
liked the pet so well that they
soon got five more. Kahn,
Boogum, Shark, Katie Did, White
Fang, and Ananda now live in
chain link enclosures on the
Dorsey's land. They have ten and
a half acres on which to roam.
The wolves are fed twice a day,
on dog food or raw meat such as
Shannon's hobbies outside of
wolf-raising include flying planes.
She holds a student's pilot
license, and is working towards
her official pilot license. This
unusual junior hopes the future
holds two things for her: vet
school and her very own cougar.

You see it everywhere-on desk tops, on
bathroom walls, on textbooks-the
familiar freshman scrawl. I Love Mike, I
Love Stacy, Weesul was here, the Circle
A-all examples of the prolific scribbler
armed with a pen. Even an occasional
sophomore slips back into younger habits
when, uninspired by a lecture on Cyrano's
noble qualities, he slaps a hasty RUSH
emblem onto the table top. What causes
this freshman frivolity? No research has
been undertaken to ascertain the cause.
Perhaps by the time they are seniors
these students will tire of leaving their
mark in ink and will instead leave their
mark on the world as a success. We know
you'll do great things, class of '89!

THE BARD'S OWN BRAND
The drama addicts of the Shake-
speare Club were disappointed
this year when they were unable to
perform their traditional play. Mrs.
Nancy Dean, their sponsor was
preparing for a major move, thus
making rehearsals virtually impos-
sible. In the past, the club has pre-
sented plays such as MACBETH, A
MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM,
and AS YOU LIKE IT. When Mrs.
Dean was asked how she felt
about her long association with
the club, she replied, "rewarding!"

ADDING A COSMOPOLITAN TOUCH
A ; Although P.K. was a small school, we were
fortunate enough to have students from
eight countries other than the United
States with us this year. Some students, like
Switzerland's Meret Brunner, were here
through the Educational Foundation's stu-
dent exchange program. Others, like Ay-
dut Dayan from Israel and Mahari Tewelde
from Ethiopia accompanied their parents
to the U.S. To gain a more personal per-
spective on life in other countries, local stu-
dents were treated to our first International
-. .-Student Forum, arranged by Dr. Nancy Bal-
dwin. Classes listened to a panel of interna-
tional students explaining the life, land, and
customs of their homelands. Some present-
ers showed slides, while others brought at-
lases and maps as visual aids. P.K. students
asked questions of the presenters at the
end of the program. Teachers and students
politan flavor that the international stu-
S- dents brought to our school.

SENORITAS AND BEAUX
The Foreign Language Club was an
innovation at P.K. this year. In the
past, the Spanish and French clubs
have been separate organizations,
but a move to combine both clubs
into a single organization created
something "new and improved". At
club functions the French and Span-
ish students shared their cultures with
one another. For example, the stu-
dents sampled food, learned folk
songs, dances, and even a few words
of one another's language. The offi- -
cers in the club represented both na-
tionalities. The advisors, Mrs. Gina
Ashton and Mrs. Jo Stepp, were
ready to try almost anything French
or Spanish. This new concept in mix-
ing the language clubs was a great

The P.K. Yonge Blue Wave Pep
Club was stronger this year than it
had been in years. Under the guid-
ance of president Joe Sajczuk, the
spirited group was present at every
school function. They brought a
new sense of pride to P.K., and the
school had a great deal of pride in
them. Dedicated to their school,
the Pep Club directed the pro-
ceeds of their fundraisers to the
rebuilding of the wooden patio by
the cafeteria. The group of hard
workers and loud cheerers said
they hope to complete this project

Spirit Week allowed us to be offi-
cially crazy and gave fans the
chance to show their undying loy-
alty to the Blue Waves. On Mon-
day students stepped back in time
to the fifties. Saddle oxfords and
bobby socks were the fashion of
the day. Anything went on Tues-
day, Outrageous Day. Blue Wav-
ers who had trouble making it to
first period on time were blessed
with Pajama Day on Wednesday.
Gators in training sported their
best orange and blue on Thursday.
Friday, Hawaiian Day, encapsulat-
ed the theme of the week. More
people dressed up for this day
than for any other day. They
seemed to enjoy being an exotic
islander, if only for a day. The fes-
tivities were topped off by a terrific
Hawaiian dance following the

Excitement lingered in the air. We
knew this would be a Hi-Tide we
would never forget. The skits were
practiced, the show was re-
hearsed. Spirits were on edge
when Hi-Tide rolled in with a big
splash! Red Line, our local talent,
rocked into the spotlight. The
crowd was hyped, and with music
still ringing in their ears they
cheered on the antics of the Fat
Boys. The football players clowned
around the stage imitating the
cheerleaders. In return, the cheer-
leaders hurled insults at the team.
Unknown talent blossomed in the
clever skits. The audience laughed
with delight. "This was a real spe-
cial Hi-Tide, it turned out great!"
commented one spectator.
For the first time in the history of
the school, a homecoming float
carried the king, queen, prince,
and princess around the field at
the game. Creative palm trees like
those on the float added zest to
the Hawaiian dance after the
game. The dance ended the week
on a happy, somewhat tired note.

GRAND REOPENING: THE THEATRE
The drama department is an excit-
ing addition to P.K. Yonge. It al-
lows the students to demonstrate
their creative and acting abilities.
Through the direction of Mr. Rob-
ert Wentzlaff several plays were
performed this year, such as BARE-
FOOT IN THE PARK, THE ODD
COUPLE, PLAZA SUITE, and THE
WIZARD OF OZ. The play MOUSE-
TRAP was an exception because it
was entirely produced by students.
Eight students accompanied Mr.
Wentzlaff to the Illinois Theater
Festival in Chicago, where they en-
hanced their knowledge of the

shared throughout the year. However,

KEEPING THINGS RUNNING
-- -~ S--1
What would our school have been
like without the cafeteria staff?
Many students would answer bet-
ter, but those students would also
have been sneaking into the
teachers lounge to raid the vend-
ing machines because they were
so hungry. The lunchroom staff
gave us readily accessible, nour-
ishing alternatives to junk food.
If a nickname like "Mr. Fixit" was
ever deserved, it would have to be
bestowed upon Ray Bonet. Ray
was there to fix every leaky fau-
cet, every torn-down bathroom
stall door, and to do all of the nec-
essary jobs that come up in the
physical plant of the school.
Students could be assured of getting the latest, most
popular, and most helpful books in Mead Library
thanks to Mrs. lona Malanchuk and her assistants
Janice Washington, Doug Kloepper, and Pia Brown.
Some of the books selected by Mrs. Malanchuk were
so popular students would wait their turn to check
Students and parents could rest assured that medical
problems in school would be handled professionally
and efficiently by our school nurse, RN Evelyn Mickle.
The clinic manned by Mrs. Mickle operated smoothly
due to her learned bedside manner.
TEACHERS HELP STUDENTS IN
MORE WAYS THAN ONE
A novel approach to assisting students with
. academic and career planning was institut-
ed at P.K., the Teacher as Advisor pro-
gram. Used last year for the freshmen class,
the program went schoolwide in August
1985. Dr. Jack Jenkins formulated the idea
for the advisory groups, and turned the
reins over to guidance counselor Jerry
Thompson for its implementation. Groups
cj' met once a month to discuss items such as
figuring grade point averages, career out-
looks, and college information. Students
and teachers enjoyed the chance to be-
., come better acquainted with each other.

A YEAR OF HELLOS AND GOODBYES
The year brought many changes for the English depart-
ment. P.K. Yonge was given Writing Enhancement money ;' t .
from the state, which made it possible to build up the
English program. Two additional teachers were hired, and
each teacher had no more than one hundred students. t
Mrs. Cindy King was brought in to provide help with con- I
centrated test preparation skills. The English depart-
ment's goals in its weekly meetings were to develop the
curriculum to meet the school's needs. This included an
emphasis on reading and writing. They also concentrated .
on SAT and ACT communications skills, an area which
P.K. students have found troublesome in the past. .
Many extracurricular activities were sponsored by English 4
teachers this year. Bob Wentzloff, English and Drama L
teacher, took a group of students to Chicago. Vicki Clif- &
ford took eleventh graders to Cross Creek, and Nancy
Dean accompanied the seniors to a few "seminars" as
well as the senior class outing. Susan Hardee and Vicki
Clifford escorted yearbook and newspaper students to
New York and Orlando for special conferences. When
asked if she could sum up this year in a word or two, Mrs.
Clifford replied, "What potential!" Yet nothing ever turns
out perfectly. We were sad to see Mrs. Nancy Dean leave
her P.K. family after thirteen years. We hoped she would
be very happy in the Honduras, as happy as she had made
us at P.K.

SOCIAL STUDIES POPULAR WITH STUDENTS
The Social Studies department at
P.K. was the favorite of many stu-
dents. This success could be attrib-
uted to the creative teaching of
Mr. Mark Johnson, Dr. Wes Cor-
bett, Mr. Mack Duggins, and Mr.
Wade Ring. The middle school was
treated to the teaching talents of
Mr. Herb Dupree. A special event
of the year was the marriage of
Mr. Johnson to Miss Jackie Kurtz

SCIENCE DEPARTMENT GAINS NEW ADDITIONS
The Science Department had two k .
welcomed additions to their staff
this year, Dr. Frank Bonaccorso
and Ms. Eve Singleton. They
brought new ideas and extra man-
power to the department. Another
new addition was on the way, too.
Plans were made for a new science
wing to be built, giving teachers
more space and more equipment.
On a typical day, students could
expect to experience a man-made
volcano and tamed wolves. Ms.
Gayla Beauchamp and Ms. Single-
ton took their classes on field trips.
The diverse offering of courses
and activities made science
classes a hit with students.

LANGUAGE CLASSES RESTRUCTURED
Fortune smiled on the Spanish and
French departments this year and
gave them two top-notch new
teachers, Mrs. Gina Ashton and
Mrs. Jo Stepp. Mrs. Stepp concen-
trated on teaching French, while
Mrs. Ashton handled most of the
Spanish classes. Both teachers
spoke Spanish, French, and, of
course, English fluently. Language
classes took on a special meaning
when Mrs. Stepp and Mrs. Ashton
related details of their own trips
overseas. The teachers also pre-
pared students for Spanish and
French competitions on both the
local and the state levels. A trip to
their state convention in Orlando
highlighted the year for certain
students in both classes.

EDUCATION FOR THE MIND AND BODY
What's the most important factor
in succeeding at Physical Educa-
tion class? "Attitude," according
to physical education instructor
C.H. Faber. Faber said he tried to
emphasize the importance of de-
veloping a positive attitude toward
exercise. Three main areas cov-
ered by P.E. this year were weight-
lifting, team sports, and personal
fitness. Included as part of the Life
Management class, P.E. reflected
attention to individual needs.
Coach Faber, in Life Manage-
ment, presented units on anato-
my, alcohol, tobacco, drugs, and
rape, along with many other topics
that affected physical and emo-
tional well being. Coach and math
teacher Phil Bollier did the same for
the middle school, along with the
help of Wellness coordinator
Diane Thompson. Coach Faber re-
marked that his experience with
P.E. classes had been "interest-

DEPARTMENT TEACHES SKILLS FOR LIVING
The Practical Arts department at
P.K. included typing, shorthand,
business law, and employability
skills. This selection was very good
for a school the size of P.K. Yonge.
Mrs. Betty Richardson and Mr.
Wade Ring were the primary .
teachers for these classes. Stu-
dents found these courses useful
and pleasant. In the future, ac-
cording to Mrs. Richardson, typing
would help students no matter
what career they chose. She also
felt that the staff made a good
choice when they made practical i '
