The graduates of the Vashon and Sumner High Schools entering Stowe this spring bring with them many fresh and vibrant personalities.

This class has cooperated one hundred per cent in the Student Government membership and has been well represented at all lectures and assemblies presented in the auditorium.

From this class have been formed many energetic advisory groups under the guidance of student advisors. These groups have taken field trips to Homer G. Philips Hospital, the City Sanitarium, the Art Museum and various other civic institutions.

As must come to all who matriculate at Stowe, the horrors and humiliation of initiation were heaped upon these students, but they bore it gallantly in proof of their fine spirit. 

For two days the girls wore patched dresses and braids while the boys displayed their "shapely" legs in rolled up blue jeans. Initiation was culminated by the Freshman Party sponsored by the Student Government Association.

The Activities

The pages that follow present a review of co-curricular activities at Stowe. 

The development of the well-rounded student must include some consideration of social and group relationships. Only through these  avenues can the work of the classroom be implemented. Here respect for democratic participation is further developed, and students face anew the implications of FREEDOM, LAW and PEACE.

Such characteristics as sociability, open-mindedness, and cooperation, are developed effectively through co-curricular activities.
