Language Arts

The Black and Gold 1977


Language Arts, Social Studies make up academic core

 Social Studies and Language Arts were required basics, essential for graduation. But each was diversified enough to satiate students' different interests. 


 Social Studies courses assisted students to become knowledgeable in the social, political, or historical aspects of the world.


 A variety of electives were offered besides the required American Studies. These ranged from Psychology, to Environmental Studies to Hawaiiana.


 Many field trips were planned, giving students perspectives outside of the confined classroom. Some of the trips were a study of animal behavior by Psychology students at Sea Life Park in November, and an environmental walk studying urban planning by Environmental Studies classes. The movie "Return of a Man Called Horse" which portrayed the plight of the American Indian was viewed at a local theater by the American Studies classes.


 The Language Arts department provided students with skills and know-how for them to develop within by offering a variety of courses.


 Besides the required sophomore English IV, there were 43 elective courses from which to choose. They ranged from World Literature to Mass Media. Popular courses such as Practical English and Reading Improvement showed marked increase in enrollment this year.


 Hard work and extra time necessary for handling of essay contests and scholastic awards paid off as many students who showed off their skills and abilities in English classes by entering the various contests.


 Basic writing skills and overall development in reading comprehension as well as literary appreciation were foremost concerns of the Language Arts department.

Classes & Awards

The Black and Gold 1977


Classes - Supplementary activities enrich curriculum

 Classroom activities made up the largest part of a typical day for all students at McKinley. As in the previous year, the school utilized an alternating 1-3-5 periods schedule on Mondays and Wednesdays, and 2-4-6 periods on Tuesdays and Thursdays, with all periods on Fridays.


 To enrich or supplement the 90 minutes of class time, teachers improvised different teaching methods. Among them were individual research, group discussions and field trips where learning extended beyond the classroom.


 Guest speakers or supplemental visual aids such as films and filmstrips also served as an alternative to the regular classroom lectures.


 Offering the largest selection of electives of any high school on Oahu, students could choose fields ranging from Home Economics to Industrial Arts, from Publications to Agricultural Technology; a course was available to suite just about everyone.


Awards - Achievements gain individual recognition

 Throughout the school year, members of McKinley's student body won recognition or awards for scholastic and personal achievement.


 Ten creative and talented art students won awards in the 1977 Scholastic Art Contest, Hawaii region. Their winning entries were on display at Ala Moana Shopping Center and later competed for national awards in New York.


 McKinley's Taikas, a girls' precision drill team, took the second division trophy in the annual Aloha Week parade in October.


 Seniors Greg Nishioka and Bart Asato were nominated to represent McKinley in the United States Youth Program. Bart was also selected as one of 20 student moderators for the State Student Conference held in January.


 One of 300 seniors in an honor group, Catherine Uyehara was selected for the 36th annual Science Talent Search for the Westinghouse Scholarships and Awards. She was also a first place winner, research division, of the MHS Science Fair.


 McKinley's band students were awarded a total of 91 medals in the Solo and Ensembles judging at the University of Hawaii. Individuals and ensembles were evaluated as they competed against other high school band students. The State Select Band in March was composed of the best in each category.


 McKinley's thespians captured overall superior ratings in the State Thespian Conference at Kaiser High School. The award of "Most Superior Ratings" was also presented to the group, whose awards included two quadruple superiors, the highest possible achievement.


 Other students received recognition for their entries at the Science and Engineering Fair and Industrial Arts Fair where their talents and ingenuity were displayed.


 Seniors, Randall Chun and Terence Oi, advanced to the finals of the 1977 National Merit Scholarship program.

Socials & Activity Period

The Black and Gold 1977


Socials - Affairs range from casual to formal

 Completing the roster of extra-curricular activities were the socials, which ranged from informal stag or drag banquets to elegant proms at fancy hotels.


 The first event of the year was the Junior Class Luau. Juniors feasted on authentic Hawaiian food and enjoyed 'homegrown' entertainment by their classmates.


 "Walk Close to Me," the all-school Winter Prom a the Ilikai Hotel's Bora Bora Room began the Christmas holidays on December 20.


 As school resumed, the first student council sponsored dance, "You Ought to be Havin' Fun" took place in the gym on January 21. Two other dances were held in conjunction with the annual carnival on February 18 and 19.


 But, exclusive class functions were the highlight of the year. The seniors, similar to the class before them, opted for a luau at Sea Life Park, instead of a class banquet, on March 26.
The casual setting gave them the chance to 'hang loose' and enjoy the festive atmosphere.


 In contrast, the Class of '79 chose to keep with tradition and celebrated their first banquet "Beautiful" at the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel.


 The juniors attend their class prom "You and I" in the chic surroundings of the Ilikai Hotel's Pacific Ballroom.


 Marketing the last day of school for the graduating Class of 1977, the long awaited senior promenade "Do You Know..." was celebrated at the Princess Kaiulani's Ainahau Ballroom.


 Concluding the school year was the traditional annual signing Aloha Dance in the gym which bade farewell to seniors and signalled the end of the school year.

Activity Period -
Personal interests determine pursuits

 This year's bell schedule, a modified form of last year's, again allotted time for students to pursue their individual goals.


 Activity period, scheduled everyday except Wednesdays, gave McKinleyites 20 minutes to one hour's time to finish up homework, attend weekly or monthly club and class meetings, or take part in specially scheduled assemblies such as commencement or ring ordering for seniors.


 Others found a refreshing break between classes and chose to relax -- within the classroom or out on the campus.


 Supplementing the activity period was tutorial time on Tuesdays and Thursdays for 45 minutes and on Wednesdays for 25 minutes. Students needing extra help with their work could seek it from teachers at this time.

Traditions & Carnival

The Black and Gold 1977


Traditions

Long history provides rich heritage and staunch traditions


 As the oldest public school on Oahu, McKinley is rich in traditions. Among the stuanchest is Black and Gold Day, which commemorates President William McKinley's birthday on January 29.


 This year the choir sang the McKinley Code of Honor at the special assembly featuring guest speaker Mr. Bob Masuda on McKinley's heritage and the introduction of new principal Mr. Herbert Imanaka to the student body for the first time.


 Other traditions with long histories include commencement exercises on the front campus and refraining from walking on the oval out of respect for the president's statue.


 As long as McKinley endures, here traditions will likewise last.


Carnival


13th annual carnival falls in prosperous year


 McKinley High School's 13th Annual Carnival happened on the weekend of the Chinese New Year, February 18 and 19.


 According to the Chinese belief, the year 1977, or year of the snake, is one of prosperity, and
truly it was.  With no rain clouds in sight, the carnival, which sometimes turns out in rain and mud, brought one of the bigger crowds, both young and old, in recent years.

 Screams and laughter could be heard amidst the noise of the power generators, as anxious carnival goers took on scary or amusing rides such as the Sizzler, Rock-n-Roll and Ferris Wheel.

 As smoke climbed to the sky, the aroma of huli-huli chicken, chili, undagi and other "ono" foods enticed the hungry.


 Ma's and Pa's Country Store gave shoppers a wide variety of bargains. Ceramics, clothes and plants were some items for sale.


 Another popular feature was the games tent, where the skilled or lucky could win stuffed animals, bottles of soda or various other prizes.


 The success of the carnival was not only determined by its patrons, but by the many who pulled together to supply the manpower -- whether actually working at the carnival itself or taking part in scrip presale drives or donating goods for sale.


 This, coupled with early planning and organization, made the 1977 carnival a prosperous one.

Assemblies

The Black and Gold 1977


Assemblies

Homegrown, professional talent entertain MHSers


 Providing students with a break from classroom learning, assemblies became an almost weekly Friday ritual. Hard work and planning by the assembly committee, advised by Mr. James Nakamoto, resulted in a wide variety and abundance of talent by both professionals and amateurs.


 The first, a "Welcome Back" assembly, featured the student council members, class officers and drama students to welcome and orient old and newcomers alike.


 Theatrical productions included "The Me Nobody Knows," presented by members of the Honolulu Theater for Youth, which focused upon aims and goals in life, and sneak previews of McKinley Theater Groups' versions of broadway musicals "You're a Good Man, Charlie Brown," "Celebration," and "Hello, Dolly."


 Among the professional talent was a guest appearance by KKUA's disc jockey Kamasami Kong and the rock group "Gig," on an island-wide high school tour, and the Honolulu Symphony Orchestra under the direction of assistant conductor Sidney Rothstein. Both gave McKinleyites a taste of different cultural experiences.


 McKinley was not at a loss for talent; the majority of assemblies were put on by students. These included the annual Wind Ensemble I Pops Concert, an Aloha Week performance by the choir, and a song contest by clubs in December that helped the student body celebrate the coming Christmas holidays.


 Especially enjoyed by students and faculty was the "Rong Show," a talent contest patterned after TV's "Gong Show." Magic, song and slapstick comedy had the audience awed at times, or howling with delight.


 At year's end the annual Awards Assembly recognized outstanding students for their service and performance.

Pep Rallies

The Black and Gold 1977


Pep Rallies

Varsity pep squad sparks unity, spirit and team support


 Pep rallies were a weekly Friday event during the football season and an added treat afterward for other various sports.


 Special surprises were in store for students like the zany antics of the seniorettes or the presentation of the Homecoming court. Class squads were also on hand during the respective class rallies.


 Held a lunch and activity periods, the pep rallies also featured members of McKinley's band who played the traditional rally favorites like "Peter Gunn" and "Horse" as well as new tunes such as "Express."


 But the main component of the rallies was the 1977 varsity pep squad, composed of six song leaders, five cheerleaders, a pep chairman and a drummer.


They participated in many events such as representing the country of Brazil in the Lion's International Parade, hostessing tournaments and participating in the Hula Bowl half-time. They also promoted the carnival at Ala Moana Shopping Center and the feeder schools, went caroling at Kaiser Hospital and planned an Easter service project at Waimano Home as well as supporting all the boys' and girls' sports activities and promoting school spirit at McKinley.

Homecoming

The Black and Gold 1977


Homecoming

'Tiger Tracks' brings together old and newSpirit, memories, defeats and pride were all part of the 1976 Homecoming "Tiger Tracks." Planning began months before the final week, as the student body and alumni worked together to prepare for the annual fall festivities.


 In the gym, packed "to the max" with enthusiastic supporters, the varsity pep squads, past and present, performed and displayed their undying Tiger spirit. Coronation of the queen and introduction of the court highlighted this Homecoming pep rally. Reigning over the celebrations were Queen Patti Matayoshi and King Mark Matsumoto.


 A downpour of rain did not hinder the traditional bonfire which took place beside the bandroom, nor deter the turnout at what may become a new tradition -- a Homecoming dinner in the cafeteria.


 The rain continued to fall at the game the next day, and again did not dampen the hopes and fight of the crowd. Colorful tapestries were parade around the stadium while the Taikas performed a special routine during the halftime festivities.


 Victory seemed imminent until the final three minutes of the game when Farrington scored the last and deciding touchdown. The final score of 12-7 found many Tigers speechless and filled with mixed emotion, yet the predominant spirit of Homecoming and its meaning upheld the celebration mood.

STUDENT LIFE

The Black and Gold 1977


STUDENT LIFE

 Contrasting, yet encompassing the academic side of school, student life on McKinley's campus was determined by the individual. Students had options to do what they wanted -- whether to join 
clubs and become socially involved or to do their own thing.

 Many school-sponsored events were extra-curricular, involving many hours outside the normal school day, such as homecoming and the annual carnival. And, for many activities, it was the students who made them happen, with the undying devotion of some faculty members.

 Academically, student life was similar to the previous year, with periods of the same length. For some, the 90 minutes still proved too long to sit down and absorb the knowledge offered them.

 Whatever the case, student life was highly distinctive, determined by the individual desires.
