Significant 70's

A test with bubbles marked - a pencil sitting on topA student walking the halls of Eureka School in the 1970's might have seen lockers decorated with smiley face stickers and maybe a Rubik's cube or "pet rock" stashed inside.  The 70's was a decade of gasoline and paper shortages.  By the end of 1973, the Board moved to temporarily suspend field trips.  The school calendar was not sent home in May due to the paper shortage.
