Mr. Volpe is one of the busiest people in our school. First thing in the morn
ing, he begins his day working with the senior doss officers during homeroom, os
one of their advisors. Thanks to his help and his effarts, the 1978-1979 schoal

afficers all year to moke Homecoming, the Snow Doll, the Forido trip, the Senior
Prom, and Graduation memorable events for everyone,
Mr. Volpe goes to his classes like oil other teachers, but Mr. Volpe's teaching
differs from most other teachers; his sharp wit and out-going personality, creotes
interest in every ospect of English. He not only teaches the regular English
courses, but olso, the gifted progrom for seniors ond tech dosses, of which he is
also on odvisor.
After school the real work begins. As director of the school musical, his hord
work and dedication is most evident. His productions ore olwoys eogerly an-
Aside from oil these activities, Mr. Volpe always finds time to be with the

HOME OF THE m sO N MM;
The first day of school this yeor
created o koliedescope of feelings. An
ticipation for the coming sports seoson,
people looking forward to o year of vic
tory, especially the footboll teom, The
freshmen were o little opprehensive
ond uneasy In their new school. But the
seniors were hoppy to be bock and
looking forward to oil the fun ond ac
tivities ahead. Mony students were o lit
tle disappointed because their
schedules didn't include everything they
wonted. As the first day’s apprehension
disoppeored, it was replaced by o busy
doy's octivities; finding classrooms ond
teachers introducing themselves. At the
close of the day, many students were
happy to hear the 2;15 bell and to
close the first doy's dosses.
KEPOUT T O THE.
Homecoming wos on October 7.
1978, during the day. The bright and sunny
weather odded to the beouty and excite
ment of the day. The climox of the doy wos
holftime festivities. Disappointed by the
foct that the Roms were losing 6 to 0 ot the
end of the half, the crowd grew excited os
time grew neor for the crowning of the King
and Queen. Although the choice wos dif
ficulty, the Senior Closs proudly crowned
Lisa LoMonico, queen ond John Cosole,
king. The other nominees were: Kuthonne
Brockwoy, Michele Broillet, Donno DeBiggi,
Kim Hodges, Wendi Houser, Phyllis O'Neal,
Bob Armstrong, Ted Emeigh, John Henry,
Mike Joconski, ond John Koch.
The winner of the float contest was o
difficult choice, since oil the floats were well
decoroted. The winners, o combined effort
of Freshmen and Sophomore dosses,
represented summer sports. Even though
the gome wos lost, the donee thot evening
was Q success.

Every year Wilson has o different fad
and this year it seems that everyone is spor
ting the lotest fashions. For some reason,
fashionable clothing seems to be the "in
thing" among Wilson students. It's not
unusual to see people flaunting their stylish
clothing or people gov^King ot those weor-
I From bulky sweaters and the layered
look, to slinisy disco outfits, mony styles of
dress ore exhibited. Everyone seems to be
getting into the croze, including some of
the faculty members, who dress like
models from Vogue mogozine.
Even hairstyles ore adopting to this
fashion croze. Not only ore girls getting
perms and body waves, but the guys ore
showing their flair for style by wearing the
curly fro. Wilson is certainly showing off its
doss with style.

Bright and early, on the morning of November
15, I978, Wilson's auditorium wos the meeting
place for those seniors who attended the annual
trip to Washington D. C., sponsored by the Social
Studies Department. The trip not only proved to be
educotionol, but olso provided pleasure for oil. Mr.
Monnion and Mr. DiSongro led the seniors through
this historical city, the copitol of our country.
The Closs of 1979 hod on enjoyoble day visit
ing such places, os the Arlington Notional
Cemetory, o guided tour through the Capitol
Building ond o tour through the White House. It is
certain thot the events of the doy, from buying
flowers from o solesperson, to shaking bonds with
representative Peter Kostmeyer, will be long
remembered, by the Senior Class of 1979.
Classes at Wilson ore most often held inside the
classroom ond this is where o student's formal educotion
ond learning experiences begin. But by no meons ore
leorning experiences limited to the four walls of the
During dosses, before ond ofter school, students
always find time to migrate to the outside of the school
building. As these outside meetings convene, students ex-
chonge news ond hoppenings of the school day. If the
students seek any kind of informotion, the best place to
seek the answer is the smoking lounge or other outside
Those few moments that the student has outside of
the classroom ore important to him or her. Time is provid
ed for the students to unwind ond toke o breother before
the next doss. Some students might use their freedom to
cotch o smoke or rop to o friend about lost night's bosket-
boll gome. Whotever the reoson, Wilson students enjoy
their moments of reloxotion from the classroom.
RAMPAGES represents o pictorol
record of the people and events of
Wilson's year of 1978-79. The yeor-
book endeavors to capture every
day happenings ond speciol
moments ot WWH5. It is important
to revive those memories of the
homecoming festivities and the
heartfelt loss of the gome, fright
frolics, with the costumes displayed
ond pie eaters, and the senior doss
tour of Woshington D.C., ond the
eventful meeting with represen
tative Peter Kostmeyer, Many other
events happened that year, such os
the troditionol Wilson donees, the
Snowball and the proms, ond sports
gomes, os well os the doily events,

Science education is one of the
avenues which utilizes and chollenges o
student's obilities and innate curiosity
about the world in which he lives.
Science is essential to the interpretotion
of the noturol phenomena and is impor-
tont because of its function in
estoblishing heolth, economy and safe
ty in life. This experience is centrol to
meoning and provides students with
materials that evoke experience. While
one of our aims for providing o science

Support given to educators by aides and subs.
The permanent substitutes and the
teacher's aides pravide the schaal with
ane af it's mast basic needs: help ta the
teachers. It is nat easy being a perma
nent sub, jumping from one class to
onother doy after doy, sometimes not
even having on emergency lesson plon,
but Mrs. Urbonek and Mr. Evons seem to
be handling this extremely well. They
help keep the school day running
smoothly for all those affected by the
absence of the teocher. The teacher's
aides don't hove an easy life. They must
do the necessory things that a regular
teacher does not hove time for. Without
these cooperative and understanding
people, the teoching staff would be lost
during the doy. The yearbook staff
would like to extend their thonks to the
permanent subs ond teocher's aides.

It takes many hard-working people
in order to keep Woodrow Wilson runn
ing efficiently and many of these peo
ple ore overlooked. The cafeteria
workers and custodians ore the people
whose Jobs ore very important, but no
one really seems to recognize their
significance. Our school day begins ot
8:00 Q . m . and ends at 2:15 p.m., but
for these employees there ore no time
limits. They keep on working until the
Job is finished. When we walk the
hollwoys or eot lunch in the cafeteria,
do we ever actually stop to realize the
time and effort these people hove
spent so that we may hove o nutritious
lunch everyday or hove o clean choir to
sit up. We think these people deserve
recognition for oil the work they hove
