,Vol. XIV, No. 9 U.S. Naval Station, Keflavik, Iceland Feb. 5, 1971 New high school to fulfill student needs Education provides the stimu- lus for the growth of youth. As the pupils of A.T. Mahan grow with their education so does their new classroom environment grow, as the largest construction of the naval station moves toward completion. The school, almost 70 percent completed, is similar in design to the present elementary build- ing. It will be completed in July and be ready for the new school year beginning August 23. The new school will have two separate wings; grades four through six in one, and seven through 12 in the other. All the students will, however, share by Lee Doss & Mary Kline the cafetorium which eliminates the problem of busing that cur- rently exists in shuttling stu- dents home for lunch. Also, the school's location provides for easy access to the House Gymna- sium, eliminating shuttling. The carpeted library within the new complex will be four times as large as the existing one and will contain a completely new supply of books and equipment, including a relief map library for geography classes. Waiting, though unpleasant at best, will be made more bearable in a waiting room near the cen- tral office with brightly colored, deep upholstered chairs. If it is variety that people want, the cafetorium will serve as a multi-purpose room. The lunch tables fold into the walls, an electrically controlled cur- tain reveals a stage, and sudden- ly... "instant auditorium," with 300 padded folding chairs. The business and typing class- room will have a small room sepa- rated from the rest of the class by soundproof windows in order that students may practice book- keeping and accounting, while others type on the new electric IBM typewriters. Classroom versatility is dem- onstrated by a folding petition (See SCHOOL, Page 6)
