28 SPIRIT OF JEFFERSON Farmer's ADVOCATE -- THURSDAY, DECEMBER 1, 1988 PLANS FOR PROM The 1989 Jefferson High School junior-senior prom will be held at the Rams Den at Shepherd College, May 13, 1989, from 8 to 12 p.m. Jefferson High is fortunate to be allowed to use the Shepherd College facility. In the past few years, the prom has been held at the Sheraton Inn in Martinsburg. However, due to increased student enrollment, the Sheraton does not have a large enough facility to accommodate all juniors and seniors. Another advantage to changing the prom location is the location for pic- ture taking. All pictures will be taken in a separate room. Hopefully, this location will help eliminate congestion in the dancing area. This year's junior class officers have also decided to have a king and queen of the prom. It has been several years since a king and queen were selected. STUDENTS SEEKING TRENDY GIFTS FREDERICK, MD.---College students are asking Santa for leather aviator jackets, college sweatshirts, cameras and telephone answering machines this holiday season, accor- ding to the results of Hood College's Third Annual Holiday Gifts for College Students Survey. Other popular gifts requested by col- lege students this year include jeans, radar detectors, VCRs, money, tapes or albums and skis. Popular catalog clothing on wish lists include items from L.L. Bean, Land's End and J. Crew. Students said they would prefer not to receive "tacky" gifts such as fruit cakes, pain- tings on black velvet, gift certificates to a weight loss center, cheap per- fume, underwear and anything polyester. Hood College students also named countless charitable/non-profit organizations they would donate to if they had a large sum of money. Heading the list of needy causes was AIDS research followed by aid to the homeless. Other contributions were earmarked for the United Way, American Cancer Society, Amnesty International, Greenspeace and the Special Olympics. A variety of non-profit groups set up to feed the hungry, offer compassion to domestic and wild animals, and shelter abused women and children were also slated to receive funds. The college students are asked for several priceless gifts such as peace on earth, straight As, dormitory singles, jobs and a new U.S. president. In order for this event to be a big success, the junior class has had many fund raisers. They have been organiz- ed by the class officers under the guidance of sponsors Lois Brumback and Mary Ellen Clipp. Some of the events include selling spirit balloons and mums during homecoming week, jewelry sales, Santagrams, donut sales, and a movie to be shown to the student body. EXCHANGE STUDENTS This year Jefferson High School is fortunate to have three exchange students attending the school for the 1988-189 team. Linda Oye comes to Jefferson from Norway. The Nelson Wilt family is her host. Hector Galvez is from the Canary Islands in Spain. His host stu- dent is Steven Stewart. Jefferson's third exchange student is Dario Giner from Valencia, Spain. Dario is spen- ding the year with the Harry Lake family. HUGH O'BRIEN AWARD Congratulations to Meredith Hope for winning the Hugh O'Brien Youth Leadership Award. Hope was selected by a faculty committee at Jefferson High. To be considered for this honor, Hope wrote an essay describing her leadership qualities. Hope will repre- sent Jefferson High at the state leader- ship conference in the spring. FHA MEMBERS TRAVEL Eleven FHA members traveled to Jackson's Mill on November 10 and 11 for the Fall Leadership Conference. Several students competed with other FHA members from the eastern half of West Virginia. Maureen Hunter won third place in the nametag contest. Holly Allnutt won second place in the poster contest and Michelle Vassar won first place in public speaking. TEST SCHEDULE Jefferson High students and their parents are reminded of the six weeks test schedule for the second six weeks: November 30 - periods 2, 5, and 7; December 1 - periods 3 and 6; and December 2 - periods 1 and 4. Report cards will be issued to students on December 7. GREAT STUDENT ASSISTANTS Mrs. Elizabeth Best, administrative assistant at Jefferson High School, would like to recognize students who help to make her job much easier. These students work in the office dur- ing their study hall hour. First period assistants Monica Rademacher and Mary Elizabeth Thornton are busy each morning col- lecting daily attendance cards. During second period, Mary Spickler assists Mrs. Best with the computer atten- dance report for the day. Mary has learned to use an IBM computer and a duplicating machine. Third period is a busy hour. Senior Kristin Dehaven files student tardy cards while Lori Wilt delivers mail to teachers. Junior Angie Tomblin and senior Mike Shuff deliver the morning announcements and daily absentee report to all teachers. Fourth period assistants are Dana Caniford and Kelli Gainer. These students prepare in-school suspension assignments slips for teachers. Unfor- tunately, tardy suspensions keep these two ladies busy. During fifth period, Sandy Bussard places all letters in notebooks. The student files are the respon- sibility of Matt Kitchen. Each day, Matt files all letters that have been sent to students and parents. While Matt is busy filing, Bruce Myers is tracking down stories for the Jefferson Tidbits. The seventh period assistants are Teresa Capriotti and Alice Marrone. Teresa works with Bruce to write stories for the weekly newspaper col- umn. Alice delivers the early-late sheet to all teachers. Mrs. Best thanks these students for the help and hopes they keep up the good work.
