Nearly every girl was wearing a poodle skirt, some full with crinolines, and many had saddle oxfords. The boys, from kinder- garten to eighth grade, wore blue jeans and white t-shirts. They were all dressed in the styles of the 1950s as part of the fortieth birthday celebration at the school. Principal Donna Halverson, herself in bobby socks and loafers, welcomed the students and the 170 grandparents who were visit- ing for the day. "This is a time of celebration certainly, and thanksgiving for us," Halverson said, adding that the students' grandparents were being honored "for their role in having the foresight" to start Holy Spirit School back in 1956. During the program, the stu- dents danced the stroll and the jit- terbug, then sang the school song. Faculty members dressed in habits from the 1950s and per- formed a song from "Sister Act." Even the pastor, Father Thomas Kessler, got into the spirit of the day, dressed in a cassock and biretta.
