The Black and Gold 1976Programs Break Routine of Academics, Reflect Talents and Creativity of MHSers
Breaking the routine of academic school life, Friday morning assemblies gave students an extra treat. A special double third period schedule enabled students not to miss any of their classes.
September brought the welcoming assembly in which members of the student government were introduced and they informed students on becoming familiar with McKinley. In October, an assembly filled with beauty as 14 girls vied for the coveted "Miss McKinley" title. In conjunction with the Christmas season, the McKinley Theater Group's first production of the year, "Godspell" was previewed before the student body. Just before the Winter Prom a program gave students tips on the dos and dont's at a prom. The bicentennial assembly which culminated Bicentennial Week, featured the MTG's patriotic skit "A Song for a New World," and a Black and Gold Assembly, which commemorated the birthday of President William McKinley, featured a disco dance troupe.
Special performances also took place on each designated class day, which featured unique and original student written class plays reflecting the talents and creativity of each grade level.
Final events included the awards assembly which recognized students who had won all kinds of awards during the year; and the Aloha Assembly at which time the Seniors gave their final good-byes and sang their commencement songs.
