"War is at best barbarism ... Its glory is all moonshine. It is only those who have neither fired a shot nor heard the shrieks
and groans of the wounded who cry aloud for blood, more vengeance, more desolation. War is hell."

~William Tecumseh Sherman (1820-1891), attributed to a graduation address at Michigan Military Academy, June 19, 1879

New class coming to school

It was the last day of school at what next year will be a different Floyd Light Middle School. Starting with the 2005-06 school year, the David Douglas School District’s Floyd Light Middle School will be adding a sixth grade class. The Floyd Light Middle School class of 2005 was the last to graduate with the seventh and eighth grade format. Left to right are members of the 2005 Floyd Light Middle School eighth grade graduating class, Alexa Holgate, Kirsten Tenhaken, Kathryn Martin, Aaron Carlton and Rudy Wollrabe. The group is seen taking pizza boxes to the recycling after celebrating the end of the school year. The day began with a class trip to Oaks Amusement Park in Southeast Portland and ended with a pizza party at the school. For more information on the school’s transformation, please see the “David Douglas middle schools add sixth grade” Memo Pad item on page 4.
