This year the senior class will lose
some very special classmates. Each of
them has, in his own way, become a
very important part of the Class of '85.
But due to circumstances within the
military community, they will leave us.
We, the Class of '85, wish the very best
of luck to these seniors in their future
endeavors. To all of you, we'll miss you.
Take special care.
My dad has amazed me the most
during my high school years. I have
gone through most of my high school
days crying on only one shoulder: his!
There has always been that big empty
space that always awaits the sound of
my mother. But I was filled with
support and love by my father who
has fulfilled the job of both mother
and father. With a puzzled outcome,
I'm a graduate!
What puzzles me about parents is that they always say that all we think about
is the beach or when's the next party weren't they ever young?
What puzzles me the most is what lies ahead in my future. Frequently the
thought comes to my mind: Will I go to college? What will 1 study? Will there
be a job for me when 1 graduate? Will I survive in this world. I personally think
it's a very scary image that someday I'll be on my own.
What puzzles me about teachers:
Why teachers find it so difficult to admit they are wrong.
Why a teacher's bad day somehow seems to be the student's
Why the grading system has me guessing.
Why teachers tell me in school not to smoke, drink, etc., yet
show me how outside of school.
Why Monday after Monday, teachers can come to school
knowing the abuse they are going to receive.
The thing that puzzles me about parents is that they don't
let their sons or daughters live their own lives. Parents don't
give us a chance to experience life in our own ways.
What puzzles me about the world is how we grasp for a dream
and never find it, plunging back to a painful reality.
This is what puzzles me the most: What is going to be of
me in the day of tomorrow? Will my dream be lived or not?
What puzzles me about my future is that it's too hard to
What puzzles me about the future is ... will I live my
dream or get caught in the turmoil of the world?
The thing that puzzles me most is
the future: so many places to go, so
many things to do and people to meet
.. Where do I start?
What puzzles me about the world
is why do we worry about making the
world a better place, when we are
destroying it every day.
What puzzles me about my future? The battle between
traditional ways and new outlooks. Do I want to settle
down and raise a family, or do I want to pursue a career
of my own? Either would be fulfilling for me ... can I
maybe do both?
What puzzles me about adults is why they are puzzled
about us teenagers when they already went through what
we did? Every now and then adults say, "Honey, we've all
been through that." So, why do they say that we make
What puzzles me about the world is why can't there be
peace, unity, and love in all of us? Why can't we be free and
What's puzzling me about the future is not knowing
what's going to come or go. It's kind of scary to think
about it, but yet, we'll have to face it someday.

Where do old dudes go?
Am I prepared to be on my own?
Will I fit in as a newcomer? How many
roles will I have to play? Being a senior,
I am sure of myself, and I have lot's of
confidence as well; the world is so big
and lonely-i hope it's ready for me!
Teachers don't understand that we
have another life besides school. The
weekends are to have fun; we are only
going to be teenagers once, so take it
How can some teachers tell us wild
stories about their adolescence and then
have the nerve to get on our case when
we do the same thing?
Why do our elders always think the
teenagers are out partying and messing

Teenagers puzzle me in many different ways,
Never to distraction quite,
Always with a bit of humor in the scene,
Because they have
Sooo Much energy,
For the things they want to do,
And are s
Tired when I want the car washed or the lawn mowed.
Because they have
Such great ambitions
A "It reminds me how I longed to play
: For the St. Louis Browns,
To turn them one-handed into champions.
I'm puzzled too at how they handle
New math and
And all the fancy gadgets in the science class,
At how they eat and eat and stay the same
When I have to diet and diet
And run and run
Just to hold my own,
At how bored they get when there's just
A peaceful moment
At how young they look and how
Quick they grow.
The students here at CHS are the teenagers I see and deal with
from day to day so I'm basing my opinions on my dealings with them.
Why are these students usually smiling and happy? Don't try and tell
me they enjoy good old CHS! Most of them are friendly and
courteous, too. Where do they learn such things? These same
teenagers participate in school activities that take so much time and
hard work when they could be at home watching TV or going to a
party. I don't understand this at all! And the athletes! They're the
crazy ones ... going through all that hard practice day after day,
bruising and straining their bodies just to do their best! Yes the
teenager of CHS really puzzles me! Don't change ... you're all great!
She is a very dedicated woman and, at the same time, a very nice
person. We will miss her so much, but we wish her the best of all.
Although many students did not know her very well, she always has
had a friendly smile. I really enjoyed working in the office by her and
the other secretaries. There goes one sweet person.
I'm puzzled why, when there are so
many advantages for today's youth
available, many do not take
advantage of these opportunities.
Education, Scholarships, keeping
mouths closed, ears and minds open,
it's all important. Priorities!! Be your
own best friend.

WHAT PUZZLES A TEACHER
Why is it teens believe they have to get drunk to be somebody? Don't
they realize they are somebody already?!
-Why the teenager cannot equate that a teacher's assignments,
grades, and reprimands equals a teacher's fierce love.
-Why the teenager cannot realize his successes and defeats,
now and later in life, are the parent's and teacher's only
a wound to the heart
a soaring journey of joy
The following are things that puzzle me most about
1. Their lack of self discipline.
2. Their inability to express ideas in complete
3. Their inability to carry over concepts from
one discipline to another (ie. math as a
tool for science, etc.)
Why do teenagers like loud music which harms their
hearing? Why so they like a dance which gets their
clothes dirty and is apt to cause bodily harm? Why do
they worship singers and help them to look and act odd
and turn them into millionaires? Frankly, I have a long
list of things that I do not understand about today's
teenagers. -Ed Koziol
What puzzles a teacher about students?

achieve academic excellence and is satisfied with achieving

WHAT PUZZLES A TEACHER
Nobody smells the flowers anymore; in-
stead they offer up the scent of grape-per-
fumed pencil erasers, or strawberry incense
rubbed on the palms of their hands, or es-
sence of musk bubble gum! The only wonder-
ment they generate is over the mechanical,
the artificial, or the electronic. Whatever
happened to the intellectual curiosity and the
teenager who wanted to know it all, feel it all
and maybe do some of it?
Everything puzzles me about teenagers-clothes, fads, relationship, desires;
but then again, nothing really puzzles me, because I was once a teenager too.
.It puzzles me that that teenagers think we were
born in a different time zone on a different planet.
I'm surprised that they think they can outsmart us!
But they can't .. we were there before!
6 :" I'm confused by their inability to accept responsibility
for their actions. Time, energy, and resources they waste
as though there were no tomorrow.
I'm puzzled by the general lack of self-discipline and
self-motivation on the part of many teenagers in the school
environment today. This spills into sports as well. It seems
often that many students are here to be "entertained" rath-
er than educated. Also I am apalled, at times, with the lack
uL,' of respect students have for each other and for authority.
Lastly, they often lack faith, trust, and strong moral convic-
tions. Am I just too conservative and old fashioned or have
things changed? It puzzles me!
What puzzles me most is how they can chew so -Bill Will
-Ann StahBeing a teenager is hard. I don't envy young people
today. I remember how difficult it was for me to grow up
and find my own identity so I sympathize with teens going
through "the struggle." The puzzle is not just about teens
S- OI but about mankind: why can't we learn from the mistakes of
others and a void the obvious pitfalls? It hurts me to watch a
polite, cheerful, motivated teen decide to follow the crowd
into the drug, sex, and alcohol culture. A visible change
takes place. There is a hardness in the face which says,
"Lea ve me alone; I don't need anyone; don't interfere." The
puzzle or questions I ask are: "How can I help; is there
anything I can do; what is the best way to show love and
concern?" I really long for the answers.
The reasons why teenagers do some of the more "different"
things they do sometimes puzzles me.
What puzzles me most about teenagers today?
One of the most puzzling things is why there are so
many students who prefer watching TV to leisure read-
ing. I am also puzzled about the high rate of absenteeism
in the high schools today in comparison to that of my
I would like to see more teenagers drop one hour of TV
watching each day and do some leisure reading. I would
also like to see more teenagers make a greater effort to
attend school instead of using any excuse to be absent.
Why are so many teenagers reluctant to take advice from
elders and at the same time can be misled so easily through
What I puzzle over is that basical-
ly teenagers haven't changed from
year to year, decade to decade, and
generation to generation.
I wonder why teenagers punt so much of the time.
I am puzzled by the students' lack of concern about
their future. The motto seems to be "eat, drink, and be
merry," but what about tomorrow or four years from
now? Are they going to be prepared to take a role of
responsibility in adult life?
I look at the vast number of students and see them
willing to accept mediocrity, to look selfishly inward
in most situations, and to feel they are strong, fine
young men and women, totally unable to see kinks in
their vision of themselves. On the other hand, there
are a few students who constantly work for a team
effort, who concern themselves with life rather than
short term appearances and who consider themselves
ineffective and rather normal. I wonder where these
few students receive their courage to continue to give
continuously, to live courageously, and to be such
examples to all of us.
What puzzles me most is that right after you have given explicit
instructions on how to do a technique, procedure, or assignment,
invariably the very first question is "What do we do now?"
Teenagers today have so many opportu-
nities to get an education that was not
available to people of the past. It puzzles
me that teens do not take advantage of
their opportunities to learn. Instead, they
want to be entertained, and they turn to
other things like drugs.
On the other hand, the teenagers who do
open themselves up to their opportunities
are so much more knowledgeable than we
I would like to see every teenager want-
ing to get a good education before settling
down with a family.
