the seniors and each senior received a hand embroidered

Powder puff is when the girls get a chance

boys on the football field, and the boys
show off their cheerleading skills. This event
attracts many spectators who enjoy
watching the boys cheer the tigerettes
This year the winners of each 15 minute
flag football game, were the 8th graders
who played the 7th graders, freshmen who
played the sophomores, and the junior class
who held off the senior class. The final game
of the evening was a hard fought, scoreless
battle between SA and the faculty. The ju-

It is a known fact that the atlantic com-
munity is a close one. Whether it's after-
school activities, plays, or cantadas, every-
one from teachers and students to the mili-
tary and their families can be found being
involved. For example the Color Guard was
found beginning many festivities, the play
JUVIE was performed mainly by CHS stu-
dents, and the Christmas Cantada pro-
vided the entire community to come to-
gether and created a Christmas spirit
shared by all.

Weekends for the majority of students means
a time to relax and get away from the daily
pressures of school and enjoy a couple of days
with friends and family. Going to the movies is a
popular way to spend a Friday or Saturday night.
Weekend parties are also very popular among
CHS students. If the movies, or parties, are not
what a student has on his or her mind then the
beach, the Gatun Yacht Club, or simply a back-
yard are great spots to catch some rays and
relax. Still other prefer to use weekends for surf-
ing, or practicing for the annual cayuco race.
While other students use weekends for the sole
purpose of sleeping or utilizing this time to study
or catch up on homework. Weekends vary from
student to student, but one thing is certain, Ever-
ybody Loves WEEKENDS!!

The Panama Canal
"honoring the past by
building the future"
This wonderful year of 1989 we are cele-
brating the Panama Canal's 75th anniversa-
ry. Without the Panama Canal there would
be no Cristobal High School. This celebration
is very important and is being celebrated on
both sides of the isthmus. "Even the cayu-
cos participating in the ocean-to-ocean
race will be provided stick-on logos com-
memorating the Diamond Jubilee." says the
SDillway newspaper which is a great source
of information on the canal. In the end of
the eighties we still "honor the past by build-
ing the future."
The "Alexandre La
Valley," an old French
crane boat, awaits

dro Miguel Locks as it
makes the first ocean-

The annual Ocean to Ocean Cayuco Race has been
tradition since 1953. The season begins in late November
and continues until race day starting March 17th and goes
through the 19th.
There are four cayuco categories: all-male, all-female,
coed, and patch boat. Crew members vary from four to
ten people depending on the size of the boat. Ages ranges
from 14 up.
During the season crews trained vigorously to build up
strength and endurance in hopes of winning the first place
Atlantic side crews consisted of three all-male crews:
Command Performance, Odyssey, and Gone Palante; two
all-female crews: Bejuco, and Daddy Most; two coed
crews: Southern Comfort and Charisma.
The race starts at Cristobal Yacht Club and continues
approximately eight miles to the north end of the Gatun
Locks. The second day starts a 22 mile stretch from the
south end of the Gatun Locks and ends at Gamboa Boat
Landing. The third and final day of the race begins at Gam-
boa and goes 12 miles through Gailard Cut, then proceeds
through Miraflores Locks ending 3 miles later at Diablo Public
After the race there is an awards assembly where tro-
phies and patches are given out.
Though the race is grueling, it is the experience of a
lifetime that has kept the Ocean to Ocean Race a tradition
for 36 years.

Junior/S niotr Prom
last dance for seniors;

The junior/senior prom is a special night, espe-
cially for seniors, because it is the last high school
dance which they will attend as students. The
junior class raises money through class ring sales,
bake sales, etc. to put together an enchanted
evening for everyone. One of the highlights of
the evening is the crowning of the King, Queen,
and court which is voted on by the junior class.
Fond memories linger as students dance the
night away with special friends.

Cristobal High School's faculty and staff ended the 70's under the Canal Zone Division
of Schools and started the 80's with the Department of Defense Dependent School
System. The faculty, staff, and student population has decreased, but as the 80's come
to an end, one thing remains the same-the teachers are still teaching and the students
are still learning.
The faculty and staff at CHS brings a variety of teaching styles and personalities to the
students. Some teachers have grown up in Panama, others have taught in the Phillipines,
Baharain, Belgium, and the United States, giving the students at CHS a wide knowledge
of different cultures.
The faculty and staff work closely with the Atlantic Community participating in plays,
fashion shows, and softball leagues, proving that teaching is not the only activity a
teacher pursues. In addition, teachers are constantly participating in inservices to gain
more teaching knowledge, they are coaches, sponsors, advisors, and even parents. The
faculty at CHS are a busy group with a lot of individuality, but they all agree on one
concept-THAT THE STUDENTS ARE THE NUMBER ONE PRIORITY.

selor, is always ready to help

teams (boys and girls) through wins,
losses, and barely-made-its. The girls end-
ed the season in second place and the
boys ended in third place. Even though
they didn't come out in first place, in our
hearts they did. They worked their best
and played their hardest like true Tigers,
and C.H.S. is proud of them.

Throughout the season, the Tiger cheer-
leaders showed great pep and pride while
working hard to support the football and
basketball teams. Under the direction of
Coach Bonnie Seeley, captain Wendy
Giese, and co-captain Jesse Dawson, the
cheerleaders led the vocal blue and gold
fans during pep assemblies, jamboree,
homecoming, as well as, games on "the

spirited cheerleaders hung in to support Ti-

Co-Editors Maria Estella and Lisa smile brightly because they
know that the deadlines are coming to an end.
Wow- it's over This year has been such an experience Through putting this book together we have
learned so much about what it means to be organized, open to ideas, able to coordinate things and to
compromise In a sense we have broadened our knowledge. can understand ourselves better and have a
clearer idea of what we wont out of life
When Maria and I took on the job of yearbook editors neither of us really knew what we were getting into.
How hard could it be to put a story and some pictures together? Boy were we surprised. Ms Lancaster, how
would we ever have remained sane without you? You have taught us so much You are the only person we
know who can take bad news and hard times with a smile Thanks for being so optimistic when we all were
so doubtful- especially around deadlne time. We know that everytime we open this book and see a
trapped caption or a type-o we'll just smile, shrug our shoulders and say "wow. we did that."
What would we have done without our photography staff? Yes Mr. Wright-you knew you were in trouble
the first time you gave us a camera and we asked "Now. what button makes it go click?" Maria and I
especially want to thank you, Charity and Barbara for not quitting on us or blowing up when we turned in 8
rols of film and told you we needed it developed tomorrow As you know. everyone of you were a vital part
in putting this book together We hope that you wll stick around for next year Yes. it was new to all of us, but
through trial and error we found what works and what doesn't. For example: the camera must be loaded for
good shots to be developed, if you can't see you can't take a very clear pic, and the cap must be off to
receive an image. Once again we learned something new- photography isn't for us. leave it to the people
who know what they're doing.
Mrs. Grubbs and Mrs Will, thank you for your help with the ads That was one last thing we didn't have to l
worry about. What a relief,
Mrs. Hoffman, your advice and assistance will not go unmentioned. Your previous experience with
yearbook helped us out more than you know This is one reason we decided you were the perfect person to
dedicate this year's yearbook to
Last but not least, we want to express our sincerest thank you to our yearbook staff They are the ones
who truly made the book possible Because this was so new to us as editors and Ms. Lancaster as the advisor,
we were unsure of what to expect Now the newness has worn off, and we know what to expect We can
only that that everyone on this year's staff remains interested and will work on it again next year Our
instincts say that next year's book will be great As for this year we will always remember staying after to
meet deadlines Those were definitely the times when we didn't want the '80's to end It all came so fast No
matter how hard we worked those deadlines seemed to make the days fly by So we were never at home.

because they never ran out of Tostitos, picante dip. popcorn. Mountain Dew's. Dr Pepper, and Diet Coke.
Not only as editors, but also as seniors we were very aware that the year was coming to an end It was
something that was excitingly frightening For most it just means a new year. To Seniors it's the beginning of
life and in reality it's the beginning of a new decade. We hope that as the years go on you can look back on
the eighties with pride and fond memories Now it is the end of the eighties, but we optimistically look '
forward to a new generation and for us "The Beginning of Life,"

The CHS band, under the direction of Art Boche,
performed at many functions throughout the school
year. The band played during each football game
promoting spirit in the stands and on the field. The
band also performed at the annual Christmas concert
helping everyone at CHS and, the Atlantic Communi-
ty, get into the jolly festive mood. This years band had
many students who have achieved honors on their
individual instruments. The band ends the 80's with a
quote, "Clap your hands and stomp your feet Here
comes music with a real hot beat At football games
and assemblies too CHS music is never blue."
Lisa and Kristina help promote spirit as they play their clarinets
