In our Math Classes, each student is
trying to become a “wizard” in giving

is On one of the bulletin boards. Each
student has put on an information fact
about Marquette of long ago or in the

female resident in Marquette? Did you
know Marquette once had a flour mill?
When Marquette celebrates its centennial

youngsters will be enthusiastic boosters!
We celebrated Nebraska’s 115th

profession on Friday, March 12. He was in

Our cursive writing improved. We used
the d’Nealion Method for four years, in
Marquette Schools. The Grand Island
Schools thought they were the only
elementary school in the state using this
method. This statement was published in
the Grand Island Independent. A second
grade student wrote a letter to the editor
stating the status of Marquette.
One student's most vivid memory is the
immense amount of fire drills they had.

This year the first graders had pen pals

The first graders sent them cards and
letters and for Valentines, they sent woven
Valentine baskets with a lollipop. This was
a wonderful experience for them.
The first graders got to be involved in
a new language program called T.A.L.K.
We had lots of fun and even had Roberta
Stiles, Project Director, from Rockford,
illinois, come to observe our class.
In Science the first graders took care
of two hermit crabs, Princess Stephanie
and Lazy Jones, and plants as part of their
study of living things.
Along with all of their studying, we had
holiday parties and are looking forward to
planning our field trips.

The grades seven and
eight sports program is a part
of, and an extension of, their

The purpose of the interschool

and cheerleading is to provide
an opportunity for all junior high
students to experience the
activity program. Victories are
secondary to the above stat-
ed purpose, but make the
activity all the more meaning-
ful when they occur.
The flag football team had
a 4 win and 2 loss record; the
volleyball team had a 6 win
and 4 loss record; the basket-
