Sometimes this noticeable habit tends to aggravate the teachers. But, students soon learn that there are no easy solutions to this problem. Probably the most bothersome problem for the forgetters Is the changing schedule from week to week. Keep- Ing mind the next days a- sslgnments also presents a perplexing sltluatlon for those with a forgetful nature. For the band student the troublemaker Is his horn. Some days the horn manages to stay hidden In the house when It should be on It's way to school. Dinner eaters often forget to take their most prized possession, their lunch, to school. Even those with their meals stamped out on a small card often find to their dismay the absense of this major asset. If you don't fit Into any of the above groups you will probably remember when you have forgotten one of the following: a book before the night of a test, locker combination, pencil case, kleenexes, purse, notebook, or on what dinner shift you eat.

The first public school In Orange City was In the home of Gerrit Van De Steeg In 1870-71. His son John was the teacher. The first real school building was completed in August of 1871. In 1872, 66 pupils were enrolled In the Orange City Public School. A fire (Its cause unknown) demolished the old grade school building in 1948. Four months later, a contract was made to construct a new building. In these years the school system did not include Maurice in its title. In fact Maurice had its own -- Maurice Independent School District. Therefore in 1958, an election was held to reorganize several of the independent districts like Maurice, into one district to be known as Maurice-Orange City Community School District. About 21 days after the election, the Board of Directors of the Orange City Independent School District held its final meeting. Two days-later thefirst meet-- ing of the Board of Directors of the Maurice-Orange City Community School District was held. It has existed under the title since then Since that time a new high school and an addition to the Junior High School in Maurice have been created. Things have changed since 1870! What is to come in the next 100 years to make today another yesterday In history? oqC CM, € moot Jerry and Norm Bomgaars Joint Concert December 20 On December 20, at 8 p.m. in the M-OC High School auditorium, the band and vocal department will present their joint concert.
