The 1961 Gecko is now available for your viewing pleasure in our Photo Gallery.
This was the second yearbook published by American Community School. It was for the July 5, 1960 – March 29, 1961 school year.
A special thank you to Burt Parker for contributing the original of this Gecko yearbook.
This yearbook contains the first pictures of our Teenagers ball team. This was also the year the team was formed and we played our first games. You’ll notice our ‘first string’ only had 8 players to cover 9 positions. We got creative in how we covered the field and all 9 positions.
This was also the first year Viet-namese and kids of other nationalities attended ACS. Prior to this school year ACS was made up of only American students.
The Yearbook was once again funded by the Yearbook Thanksgiving Carnival, as had been started the previous year. One of the most popular events at the carnival was “Clear the table in three and DUNK the GIRL”. Who was the ‘girl’ and how many times did she get dunked?
Who remembers the High School Christmas Dance at the Plaza?

I’ll be converting this yearbook (and all the yearbooks) to eBooks later. But, will first put them in the Photo Gallery so you can view them while I’m working on the eBook versions. Once converted to eBooks you’ll be able to download copies to your computer.
