Noon Events For the first time in the history of B. Y. High, the Junior High students are holding daily noontime activities. On January 2, the program began after careful planning by a committee of Junior High officers and social chairmen of each grade under the direction of Mrs. Bauer. The program varies from day to day, with dancing, playing games, watching movies and planning future parties. Faculty members of B. Y.
