ITS STILL Page 4 Nw Park City High Schctol ing On Work Schedule Progress Tree Program Called Late Bloomed i I ' Park City's new high school on Highway 248 Now , beginning to sprout red brick walls, Park City's new high school looks like a safe bet to successfully reach it completion date of Jan. 14, 1977, according to School Superintendent Dr. Richard Goodworth. Sept. of 1977 Although it appears likely the new school will be finished oh schedule, . Dr. Goodworth explained he does not expect it to be housing students until Sept. of that year. The superintendent cited the many inherent problems of trying to complete com-plete the three week move while the students are in session. "By moving in the summer," sum-mer," he said,"we will have time to work out all the kniks and have everything ready for the fall." J.J. Johnson & Assoc. In a report presented to Goodworth by J.J. Johnson & Associates, a 'local engeneering firm hired by the school district to oversee the construction project, the new school's progress was described as progressing on schedule. . The evaluation report read in part: , ' "It is proper to note at this time that the contractor (Culp Construction) has generally done a very good job on the project to date, and that a highly cooperative attitude on the part of the contractor has been noted." Costs The total cost of the new building, including the architect's ar-chitect's fees, is $3,006,000. With the State Critical Building Aid fund con- tributing $1,630,000 to the project along with $356,000 from the South : Summit School District, the Park City School District's Share comes fo $1,020,000. South Summit's share was calculated by the number of students residing within their district which will r be attending at-tending Park City's new high school. Commenting on the sizable financial outlay made by the state," Goodworth said,"We timed our request . perfectly. If the district applied for the Critical Aid money under the recently revised criteria we wouldn't qualify." The state money, however, was granted with the stipulation that it could not be spent on an auditorium or on landscaping. Consequently the new school will not be equipped with an auditorium although it was designed to allow room for one if the money is available at a I uriirmsl ( S ht VSfil 3f',tf vliafl -u:t later date. Flexibility ; The new school, with its capacity for 450 students, should offer plenty of room for the 250 students currently enrolled in the 7th through 12th grades. "It was designed .for community school use and offers a great deal of flexibility," Goodworth pointed out. Built so that it can be opened up in sections, the new school will be able to handle particular events and needs more efficiently, the administrator explained. Gymnasium Park. High's new gym will have a basketball floor 93 feet long, 9 feet longer than the standard 84 feet high school floor, and a seating capacity of 1,018. The second floor of the gym will house a complete wrestling and trampoline facility. Although the. new school will not be equipped with a swimming pool, that also could be added at a later date. ' . Old High School "There are no plans at the moment for the old school," Goodworth said and added, ad-ded, "The board has not addressed that problem as yet." When exploring the possible uses for the old building the superintendent stated,"The key issue will be how large the elementry school grows." - With Park City's Marsac Elementry School beginning to reach its capacity, it is possible, according to Goodworth, that the old high school could be turned into a middle school. in ' H S H g g g KiMf S B Ear f I r . f f- V:.

Mother's Day A Busy One For Ma Bell Wolls Takes Moana Post More than 11 million sons and daughters will be giving Mom a ring on Sunday, May 9, according to Local Mountain Bell Exchange Manager E. H. Anderson. Because Mother's Day is the second busiest day of the year for the telephone company, Mountain Bell has scheduled nearly 500 operators in Utah to handle the high volume of long distance calls that will be made on that special day. And because of the heavy telephone traffic, Anderson suggests a few ' tips on avoiding delays and saving time and money for those who desire to wish mother well on her day. Timing will help the call go through. To avoid the busiest time of the day, calls should be placed between noon and 5 p.m. Calls will also go through faster if they are placed at times other than on the hour or half hour when calling peaks are the highest. You may even wish to call on Saturday and tell your mom you couldn't wait. ,u Plan in advance what you want to say. Callers will be able to cover more conversation con-versation in less time by jotting down things they want to talk about. Those interesting in-teresting little tidbits are also less likely to be forgotten. Direct dialing 'saves time and money. It alwys costs less to call direct because an operator's assistance isn't required. In most cases, direct dialing is also the fastest way to complete a call. If you don't know the number, it's best to get it from the long distance operator before mother's day. If Mom lives outside the U.S., it's especially important im-portant to have her number ahead of time.
