If you are someone who disliked gym, join me on a little fantasy trip. You arrive at high school for the first day of your junior year. Looking across the street from the school entrance toward the gym building, you see … a pile of rubble! The gym building stands no more. Is this just wishful thinking?
No. The long awaited construction of the replacement for the crumbling old school has started and step 1 was demolishing the old gym building so that the new school building can be built in its place.
Because the school has no appropriate facilities, a waiver has been granted from the state exempting all students from the PE requirement for the next two years until replacement facilities are built. Two years, as in – after you graduate!
A nice fantasy … and exactly what happened to me.
