CIRCLE (Ja m e s

Yesterday a child came out to wonder Caught a dragonfly inside a jar Fearful when the sky was full of thunder And tearful at the falling of a star. Chorus And the seasons they go round and roimd And the painted ponies go up and down We're captive on a carousel of time; We can't return We can only look behind fran v^ere we came And go round and round and round In the circle game. Then the child moved ten times round the seasons Skated over ten clear frozen streams Wbrds like "when you're older" must appease him And prcniises of saneday make up his dreams. Chorus Sixteen springs and sixteen sunitiers gone now Cartwheels turn to car wheels through the town And they tell him take your time it won't be long now Till you drag your feet to slow the circle down. Qiorus So the boy who dreamt tcmorrcw now is twenty Though his dreams have lost seme grandeur caning true There'll be new dreams, maybe better dreams than twenty Before the last golden year is through. Chorus - Joni Mitchell

trounced MVS, and then Seven Hills was vanquish­ ed, too. Though MVS fell to Fairfield in the sectionals, the players were at their best,demonstrating to all what they had learned during the season: to play the game well is just as important athlete as is winning or losing.

SPECIAL UNIFORM REQUIRED And as if Fall Term was not exciting already -- the Upper School Dress-In-The-Dark Day.



The order of

the day was to reach into the closet with eyes shut and then to wear what ever one happened upon - color coor­ dinated or not. Many took full advantage of this op­ portunity to let their true


alities shine by dressing backwards, inside out, gaudily, and ludicrously.


Those who did

not in­

dulge in this activity still enjoyed gaping and laughing at those who did. Everyone loved this


to ex­

press themselves or to just act a crazy manner.

Among the fall activities were traditional Lower School festivities.

Wo r d From Fall... nEV] YEAR A m NEW FACES The school year, 1977-1978, w i t h all its newness and c h a n g e h a s been an e x cit­ ing experience for all the m embers of The Mia m i Valley School. The year was begun w i t h m o r e than the usual a n ticipation because of the great n umber of n e w faculty and staff, as w e l l as the n e w students. Both Upper and Lower Schools are being headed by n e w principals:Mr Thomas Elmer and M r . W i l l i a m O'Flanagan. Both of these m en have done an excellent job w i t h their duties, and have b e come well-liked m e m ­ bers of MVS. In addition to these n ew administrators, there are two n e w social science tea­ chers: Mr. Jerry Sampson and Mrs. Carolyn Weng. The science department has a whole n e w look w i t h the a d ­ d ition of Mrs. Mary Heuser and Mr. Bryan Czarnota. The m a t h department added Mr. John Vanden B o o m to its n u m ­ ber, while Mr. Peter Chand­ ler assumed the role of PE and health instructor and athletic director. The fine arts program boasted n ew instructors with the add­ ition of Mr. J im Reed in art and Ms. Terrie Lillevig in music. Mrs. Jane Nelson assumed the responsibility of Librarian, assuming this role after working as aid last year. Completing the upper school staffing was the addition of Mrs. Anne Carr, the Skills Specialist In the Lower School, first grade teacher, Bettye Ste­ phens, was the only n ew face. All of these teachers have made the adjustment to MVS and become liked and re­ spected members of the com­ munity. Thus, the school year, which began with some

ANNUAL OPEN HOUSE A traditional fall event is the Open House when parents and teachers meet to share the program for the year ahead. This year's event was well attended as parent and faculty joined in sev­ eral n e w activities.

f a c u l t y /PARENT


The Polo Club was again the setting for the fall get-together of the parents under the auspices of the Parents Association. On a b eauti­ ful, clear day, parents ga­ thered together to welcome new parents to the school, and to meet the n e w faculty. Entertainment chairperson Bobbie Myers, had organized a musical entertainment to the music of "Godspell."The parents and faculty made up the cast and musicians. The response was so over­ whelmingly enthusiastic,the performance was repeated at school before the entire e n ­ rollment .

Sadat-Beain Talks Major News In the raonth of tJoveiuber, 1977, at Ben-Gurion A ir­ port in Tel Aviv, Israelis greeted Anwar Sadat, the President of Egypt. Sadat's trip was the first official visit to Israel by an Arab

leader since the state was formed in 1948. Sadat met many Israeli leaders and government m e m b e r s , includ­ ing Moshe Dayan and former Prime Minister, Golda Meir. Sadat and Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin had broken the diplomatic iso­ lation that had existed be­ tween Israel and Egypt. Is­ raelis reception of Sadat was so warm that his visit was extended. The search for peace in the entire Mid East is unpredictable, but this certainly was a major step by the two prime mini­ sters.

Something ne w was added to the school program over the summer - a hot lunch pro­ gram. Prepared by the ki t ­ chens of the Dayton Public Schools, students and fac­ ulty are able to purchase a warm noon meal as an al­ ternative to the tradition­ al brown bag. The monthly menu is published for the students so that they can plan ahead. Meals consist of a meat, fruit, vegetable, and dessert. Milk is also included. In the Upper School, additional sand­ wiches, potato chips, and frozen desserts are avail­ able at a moderate cost. It may not be MacDonalds, but at least it provides choice where there was none before.

Today is Monday. Have a good dayl" With this message the school day begins at the Miami Valley School. Starting this fall, all of the students and faculty gather in the gymnasium at eight-thirty where attendance is taken, a lunch count ga­ thered, and announcements made. While there was some adjust­ ment that had to be made in the length of the days' seven periods to accomodate the ten minute assembly, there are some positive advantages to this all-upper school morning gather­ ing. There is a sense of the whole school being included in a coimon pursuit while allowing all to share in the events of the day ahead.

Boys Varsity Basketball A LONG WINTER AND A LONG SEASON Though ending the 1977-1978 basketball season with a record of three wins and eleven losses, the team progressed well playing against some very tough opposition. Because so many of this year's players were new and because there was so much snow, the team had to suffer through an early season period of being outskilled. But as the season progressed, and the players respond­ ed to first year coach, Pete Chandler, the team began to play more effectively and presented a challenge to their opponents. Special highlights of the season included two victories which came as the buzzer sounded when team captain and senior Ken Wilder hit two im­ portant pressure shots. The first of these was the victory over Cincinnati Christian and the second was in the tournament played in Indiana­ polis against Evansville Country Day School. In the Sectional Tournament the team again drew highly rated Covington as their opponent. The game was played before four thousand fans at the University of Dayton Arena. The MVS team made a contest out of it, saving their best ef­ fort for this final game of the season., Coving­ ton won the game 57 to 34, but the score does not reveal how well the Rams really played. A lot of credit must go to the team, particular­ ly seniors Roy Cowan, Tom Emoff, Charlie Hedley, and Ken Wilder, for their persistance and strong efforts in this long season. Next years' team will have returning lettermen Greg Chick and Scott Moyer along with returning varsity players Jeff Green and Steve Princehouse for its founda­ tion. It will be supplemented with some of the outstanding young players who made up this years Junior Varsity team. With the promise of a new gymnasium in which we will host varsity contests MVS can look forward to a more successful season in 1978-1979. longer will the MVS fans have to find their way to the gymnasium on Wilmington Pike to watch varsity contests. Basketball will finally arrive in a big way at Miami Valley.

When weather did permit play, the results were anything from the unmen­ tionable to the unmentionable. One of the most memorable games could definitely be termed a source of humiliation. By the end of the last quarter all of the efforts of the tired and disheartened team went toward keeping the op­ ponents from hitting the century mark while it pushed to break forty. It was a fun ^season, though, and the coaching of Sharyn Jackson, the scrappiness of Keta Cowan, and the sharp-shooting of sophomore Marci Cohen helped keep spirit alive. With the addition of several promising JV play­ ers who will reach the ninth grade next year, the solid core of returning veterans, and the playing area provided by the new gymnasium, the future of Girl's Varsity Basketball is promis­ ing at MVS. Perhaps humility can be taught to some MVS opponents during the 1978-1979 bas­ ketball season.

Girls 7 t h / 8 t h G ra d e Basketball



The unusually scrappy and energetic seventh and eighth grade girls basketball team displayed the kind of en足 thusiasm that makes a winner out of a team, no matter what the final season record looks like. Under Coach Bill Glisson, several of these girls developed skills that will make them effective additions to the Varsity program next year.

Throughout the fourth quarter, the teachers used what little strength remain­ ed to try and catch the stu­ dents, but failed leaving us victorious. The faculty was led by the games high scorer Pete Chandler's 32 points, ■followed by Vin Romeo's 20, and Joe Zaluski's 16. Greg Chick led the students with 27. Roy Cowan and Bruce Spence added 20 and 18 re­ spectively. Keep trying old t eachers.'

TEE BLIZZARD OF '78 I remember listening to Bob Breck on Channel 2 announ­ cing that the barometer had hit a record low and was on its way down. There was al­ ready over a foot of snow on the ground outside, and Bob Breck was telling us that we had broken the low barometer reading. Obviously, it was going to snow. There was to be a lot of it. I remember waking up at four in the morning to the sound of creaking trees and h o w l ­ ing winds. I looked out my bedroom w indow and could not see the houses across the street. The big leafless trees were swaying in the wind like saplings. The air had become a sea of snow. I went back to bed after decid­ ing there would probably be no school that day. When I woke up at 8:30 it was still snowing and blowing.Itsnowed and blew all day. I remem­ ber there being no newspaper no mail, no school, and al­ most no news on the TV. And for two days afterward, the city of Dayton literally was stilled. There was n ow al­ most three feet of snow on the ground. We broke all of the records for total snow fall this year-54 inchefe. Every winter activity was d e ­ layed or cancelled - includ­ ing my birthday celebration,. I remember. The Blizzard of '78 made this a winter to never forget.

SUCCESSFUL SEASON FOR TEAM MVS participated this year for the first time in the high school quiz program "As Schools Match Wits,"on Channel 22. The five m e m ­ ber team, along with the three advisors, practiced for many arduous hours and made an excellent showing. The "WITS" team's defeated Jackson Center in the fir­ st match by a score of 235 to 60. The second victory was against a strong Rich­

mond team (290-80). The team lost to the tourna­ ments third place team, Vandalia Butler. MVS is being recognized in the community and the success of the "WITS" team only enhances the school's name in the city.

A TIFE OF CHA.NGE Immersion for the seventh and eighth grades had a new look this year. For the seventh, there was work in the basic skill areas with Mrs. Carr, a continuation of math with Mr. Fath­ er] ey and Mr. O'Flanagan, literature and grammar with Mr. Elmer, and with Mrs. Nelson, a library unit. Eighth grade students spent half of the day pursuing either Spanish of French with team leaders Mrs. Mel nick and Ms. Anderson, ably supported by Mr. Reed, Miss Lillevig, and Mr. FatherLey. In the afternoon, both groups selec­ ted activities that ranged from cer­ amics to bowling all with the help of teachers Anderson, Melnick, Carr, Jackson, Chandler, and Reed. The ninth grade spent hours in prep­ aration and on field trips while do­ ing a Study of the Earth under the leadership of Science teachers Bryan Czarnota and Mary Heuser. Three days a week were spent in class (during the mornings) and two days spent on field trips throughout the area. Af­ ternoons three days a week were with seventh and eighth grade students in a variety of activities. 7TH GRADE LEARNING SKILLS WITH CARR


During Immersion in Mrs. Carr's room we worked a lot on grammar and read­ ing comprehension. One thing I liked was that we chose what we wanted to do and it was our responsibility to do it. Some of us worked briefly on speed reading. Even with the brief time we worked on it, it did improve our reading skills. Overall, it was a good course. -Key Randolph In Mrs. Carr's class,it was very ex­ citing because we got to work in the folders. Sometimes, on Fridays, we played games. All of us worked on reading comprehension,spelling, ad­ verbs, adjectives, and verbs." We listened to tapes too. It was fun. -Beth Weiner





A NEW LOOK TO IffERSIOT^ 1978 The Immersion Program of 1978 was greatly changed from previous years. The Foreign Language Immersion - once the bulwark of the program, had vir­ tually disappeared. In its place for grades seven through nine was a cur­ riculum that involved both academic and activity oriented experience. For grades ten through twelve, there were course offerings not seen beforeintroduction to Architecture, Theatre Appreciation, and Film-making, as well as such old standbys as Govern­ ment and Computer Programming. Des­ pite these new offerings, the course choices seemed unusually limited to some students. Perhaps for this rea­ son independent studies were popular in '78. Most of these were intern­ ships in fields of business, politics, law, science, and art. Locations in­ cluded Los Angeles, Chesapeake Bay, Mexico, Israel, and of course Dayton. The Immersion Program of 1978 was new and for most of the students involved in it, exciting and worthwhile. "The Immersion Program involves a month of study in nearly any area of choice. In it a student is given the chance to get involved in a specific area of study and really learn." "For the 1978 Immersion I studied Theatre Appreciation. Viewing five Broadway shows was the highlight. Yet all of it was thoroughly enjoyable, educational, and worthwhile." "I think Immersion is a very unique and worthwhile experience that our school offers. It's really an enjoy­ able break from the monotony of the regular school program where kids can learn about themselves." "A break in the pace and a change in the scenery___ Too much homework, but it's fun anyway." "Immersion is a fantastically wonder­ ful experience because it gives you a chance to experience a fantastic­ ally wonderful experience." "Immersion is a worthwhile experience in which a student has the opportuni­ ty to expand his knowledge in an area which is of interest to him." "Immersion is being drowned in ledge."

"I have never encountered anything as meaningful 5 self-rewarding,and pleas­ urable. I had anticipated the worst, but received the best. I had not re­ alized the extent of what was involv­ ed in an organization such as the one with which I worked - the Therapeutic Riding Institute (TRI). It has taught me to be more confident and more appreciative of myself. I value this experience more than any other I have ever had and was proud to be a part of a program such as TRI." "To be at one with nature. To really be aware of others and yourself. 'To serve, to strive, and not to yield.' To be limitless - that is Outward Bound." "Immersion for me was realizing that a place like New York City is just an ordinary place that people 'oooh' and 'ahhh' about in spite of its similar­ ity to everyplace else. The glamour and luminous marques are only a part of the single minded person who goes looking for it." "So you fet up in the morning, hop on a bus, and spend the day painting and drawing - but always learning." "Immersion provides an experience be­ fore going to college which helps one discover his own brand of personal motivation." "Three girls - two blond and one redventured into an artistic world of people and ideas. The happening re­ sulted with severe impact of green, orange, and purple." "Commercial artists work profession­ ally, that means accurately." "The experience of living in a for­ eign country is one that has capped my total high school education." "Municipal government is finally be­ ginning to represent its constituents. The power of the Federal Government restricts the ability of local rep­ resentatives to act out their propos­ als fully." "Immersion was frightening in concep­ tion, but exhilarating in practice. I did not really want to do it, but am delighted that I did."

^■Jhat is love? From the spiritual and inner point of view, love is self-expansion. Human love binds and is bound. Divine love ex­ pands and enlarges itself. Here we are dealing with Divine Love.

Devotion is the'intensity in love, and surrender is the fulfillment of love. Why do. we love? We love because at every moment we are pinched with hunger to realize the highest, to feel the utmost, to be conciously one with the universe; with the universal Truth, Light, Peace and Bliss, and to be completely fufilled.

How to love? If we love with a achieving something from others, then our love is no love. Love means constant self-offerin-^ :-i the strength of our own inner aspirations.

Boys V arsity Tennis A miNUING TRADITION - WINNERS AGAIN On March 21st, while most MVS students were on vacation, hearty tennis players braved the ele­ ments and practiced for the first time. Though some predicted a banner year akin to that of a year ago, most of the veterans saw this season as a rebuilding one. With Alter, Bel 1 brook,Se­ ven Hills, and Chaminade-Julienne on the scheddule, a breakeven season was predicted. For­ tunately, predictions are not results. The team finished with a remarkable 11-3 record. What happened to turn a break-even season into an excellent one? First of all, the singles, which were expected to be weak - Ming Hsi Tsai, Craig Myers, and Brad Myers - all had winninc seasons. Coach Vin Romeo's team was once more led by the doubles teams. With Tom Emoff, Jeff Sapinsley, and John Norton backing up Mike Rice and Mitch Emoff at first doubles, and Adam Gor­ don and Richard Donenfeld at second doubles,our team had depth as well as power. Mitch and Mike stretched their consecutive winning streak to 33 matches over two seasons. The second doubles also had an excellent season, losing but once to Mike and Mitch in the first annual MVS Tour­ nament in which the team tied for first. In the sectionals, we tied for second behind a strong Oakwood team, with all players giving their best performances of the season. A season, no matter how good, cannot go by with­ out disappointments. The consecutive match re­ cord ended at 15 and the tie in the MVS Invita­ tional was anticlimatic, unsatisfying, and frustrating. All in all, the season was good. Next year pro­ mises to be another good year in spite of los­ ing Ming Tsai, Adam Gordon, and Tom Emoff. This is due to the outstanding crop of freshmen who are due to play next year. Many feel that next year's team has the potential to go undefeated. It's possible, very possible---

Of spring In te re s t

™ R E M R EVENTS HIGHLIGHT JUr€ The Junior Class hosted the annual end-of-year event, the Junior-Senior Prom, in the lobby of the Win­ ters Bank Tower on June 3, 1978. A large group of students and class sponsors (some of whom are shown at the left) enjoyed the evening. Thursday, June 8, provided the con­ tent for the other pictures on the facing page as the sixth grade graduation exercises were held. A variety show, including participa­ tion of the teachers Ladd and Zaluski, was performed for guests. On Wednesday, June 7, groundbreak­ ing ceremonies for the new physic­ al education facility were held. A group of students turned over the dirt as work on the building will now begin.








The AFS Program at MVS has been alive and active this year. The April AFS function,' "Swing Into Spring," was a success. Foreign students from all over the Dayton area came to join in the evenings' festivities including a dinner, a dance, and the playing of a variety of games. By the end of the evening new friendships were made and all faces became familiar. It was a thoroughly enjoyable event for all. AFS is becoming an important part of Miami Valley; it's a growing program. "I really thank you at MVS for this v/onderful year. It gave me the great opportunity to make so many friends and to learn a foreign language. This year has changed completely my life. I will always remember this great ex足 perience and especially now I do not want to go back to Italy, because now I feel a part of American life, part of this big family that has made me feel so comfortable. As the days go on I want to enjoy every minute of it and the day of goodbye is coming up. But as we say, ' Goodbye doesn't mean forever.' I hope I will some back to see you all again. "Keep in touch. I love you." Cinzia Marcotullio

A W o r d F r o m S p r i n g ... ODE TO TEACHERS LEAVIl^G Birds are singing in the trees, Students lounge with care­ free ease In the hot afternoon sun Making plans for the year to come And teachers plan their courses. Not every teacher shall return To coach the students, help them learn; These are the teachers leaving. This year they number three: Coach Chandler, Mrs. Weng, Jim Reed. We're gad to see them go; But as they leave we know Each of them helped us grow and n o w . .. It is time for them to move on.

FRIDAY NIGHT FEVER Contrary to popular thought, the Junior Class is capable of "getting it together." A prime example of this was ex­ hibited on the 28th of April when the class culminated its weeks of planning and a d ­ vertising into a feberish evening of boogeying aptly named "Friday Night Fever." Numerous Upper S c h o o l e r s ,in­ cluding all of the grades, faculty members, and several non-MVS people showed up in their finest disco apparel. The crowd was kept dancing by the nonstop variety of up beat sounds spun by disc jockey, Larry Baldwin. And if one wished to escape the fervor of the dance floor the eleventh grade also pro­ vided pizza and refreshments But not surprisingly, many found it difficult to stay away from the vibrant disco atmosphere for long due to

the flawless light show en­ gineered by the juniors. The strobes, colored lights, and mirrored sphere in addition to the rousing music trans­ formed the upper school gym into a bonafide discotheque. When the dance ended, many perspiring, but happy people reluctantly parted and could be seen doing the Latin H u s ­ tle in the moonlit night.

ATHLETIC AWARDS A RE NEW Miami Valley has been an in­ stitution which stresses acadfeinic achievement. But af­ ter a long, hard day in school, many students have found that kicking a soccer ball, or chasing a tennis ball, or even trying to put a ball through a hoop, is a terrific way to unwind every day after school. Yet, b e ­ cause Miami Valley School is a place where academics come first, the coaching staff de cided to add special awards of recognition for the best male and female athlete in the school, and to also rec­ ognize the school's scholarathlete.

The best male and female awards were given to the va r ­ sity athletes who through leadership, athletic ability good sportsmanship, strong endeavor, and perseverence has best represented MVS.The Scholar-Athlete Award is awarded to the senior who has demonstrated consistent and outstanding academic perform ance in addition to being a positive and persevering mem ber of an athletic team. The addition of these new awards draws attention to the in­ creasing role of athletics in today's life. Academics and athletics must go hand in hand if a well-rounded ed­ ucation is to be achieved. At this year's sports ban­ quet, Keta Cowan was named the outstanding female ath­ lete, while Ken Wilder was named the outstanding male athlete and received the a-^ ward of scholar athlete for the school year, 1977-1978.

SPRING Spring fever? Nonsense I Since when don't seniors arrive at school late during the Spring Term? Since when isn't the area outside the school strewn with sunworshippers? Since when don't the tea­ chers complain about the patter of tiny hooves as students retrieve their frisbees from the roof? You know the story the weather is just too fine for w o r k . ..summer is just too close. Definitely a prime time for seniors whose years of toll at IWS are almost through. It's just a matter of keeping your brain to-

gather until graduation — can't let those late papers get out of hand...seems like there are always hastles about "signing out." Lots of people "get sick" this time of year, too. For some rea­ son this is a time to sleaze. Spring is for all a time to savor.

SPRING FAIR - ORIENTAL Bright, colorful balloons bobbed above the heads of the happy, hand - painted children. Mommies stood b e ­ hind papier mache counters and sold their old-time,fav­ orite goodies. Past and pre­ sent frustrations over the tests and quizzes were avenged on sopping wet tea­ chers. Under a white canopy hung vibrant oriental fig­ ures , while cuddly kids in a bubble around the corner bounced high. Smiles seem­ ed to poke their huge heads around every corner. This sunny, green scene ap­ peared to come straight out of a Norman Rockwell paint­ ing. It was the Miami V al­ ley Spring Fair, an annual 'project to raise money for the MVS scholarship fund, planned by the Parents' A s ­ sociation and chaired this year by Mrs.Toivi Cappel and Mrs. Mimi Grant. Although the turnout was not as big as usual, many parents,tea­ chers, students, families, and just plain-old regular people showed up. The Tsais created an authentic Chi­ nese cuisine, chopsticks as well, which proved a delicous challenge to all of the MVS fumble-fingers. Later the highlight of the even­ ing unfolded, the Gong Show. It may not have been the equivalent to a big Broad­ way bash like "Chorus Line',' but the audience, as well as the participants, took this in stride and had a rowdy, good time. It was a fat dav of loud lauehter and soft memories.

BUILDING CAMPAIGN OFF In the fall of 1977, the Board of Trustees authoriz­ ed and the Miami Valley ed and the Miami Valley School community undertook a capital fund raising pro­ gram that would provide the necessary support to allow the school to build a much needed physical education building, enlarge the media center, and provide for an expanded fine arts program while allowing space to be utilized as a multi-purpose student area. On June 7, 1978, official groundbreak­ ing ceremonies culminated a successful fund raising cam­ paign and also marked the beginning of a n e w era of growth and success for the school. All of us look for­ ward to using and enjoying the n e w facilities during the 1978-1979 school year. We are grateful for the sup­ port that has been extended to us by the people of Day­ ton and our own school com­ munity.

TORNADO PROCEDURES When the alert sounds, stu­ dents are to leave the room and sit down in the hallway with a book over their head to prepare for a possible tornado. Teachers are to open windows and prop open the door to their classroom to allow the winds to rush through and to keep the through without destroying through without destroying the building. These were the instructions that ac­ companied the school's tor­ nado drill this spring. May it never come to pass.


i ' A The second installation to the Cum Laude Society of the Miami Valley School was held in conjunction with the sixth gradu­ ation on June 10, 1978. As explained by the chapter secre­ tary, Betsy Hughes, the Cum Laude Society was established to recognize students in private schools who have distinguished themselves through their academic and personal performance in the years they have been in high school. Elected to me m b e r ­ ship this year were Annetta Burke, George Day, Susan Krumholz. Sheri Sable, Beth Saidel, and junior, Stephanie Weber.

Late into the night We worked (until day). Got the annual finished. And sent it away. Erin Muths Jackson, Wyoming
