Rriinnnnnnggg--the noon bell dismissed a crowd of hungry sophomores to be caught in the lunchtime traffic. Some hurried to meet their friends and rushed off campus to spend their 42 minute break for lunch at McDonald's, King St. Pharmacy, Zippy's, or the popular "Sweet Shop." Other diligent sophs headed for the library to complete their homework assignments, work on projects, or to further pursue their scholarly interests. Favorite hangouts for the Class of '77 included the band room, the parking lot, Sophomore Court, Mr. Maeda's room, or classes in which teachers permitted them to study or eat lunches they brought from home. After a satisfying lunch, clusters of sophomores could be seen relaxing or socializing on the front lawn until the ringing of the bell announcing the end of lunch, sent them dashing off to their respective classes.

An attempt to gain a higher education prompted 828 students to come to McKinley and experience the school life that would eventually become a part of them. Everything was new for these students, the Class of '77, including the environment around them, new faces, teachers and a "first time" class adviser--Mr. George Maeda. Caught in the whirlpool of high school activities, a prolonged class officers' election was held-the results begin dominated by three boys and one girl. Along with Mr. Maeda, they began putting ideas together for events and activities which were to compose the Class of '77. Being class adviser was a personal challenge and a very satisfying job, according to Mr. Maeda. This was a good opportunity to get to know individuals and understand viewpoints of the students. Inspired by the pride and spirit at school, the sophomores displayed undaunted spirit at pep rallies and produced an enthusiastic pep squad to help them cheer. A JV football game dedicated to the sophomores helped bind the class together as did their class image elections. This was another step towards identity and recognition at McKinley. Pooling their efforts, they strived to complete their first Homecoming float on time. This hectic time of year brought many new faces together for good times. To help them get acquainted with each other, the sophomores sponsored a "Vote K-POI" activity for the entire school. Piles of paper filled with "Vote K-POI" were brought to Mr. Maeda's room. Although McKinley did not place in the contest, the sophomores attempted to lead the way for school unity.
