Re: What ever happened to traffic boys or girls

Girls were not allowed on traffic patrol at Alvarado in the early-mid 60's. I do however, remember being allowed to attend the review at Kezar one year.

Some of us 6th grade girls got together and convinced our Principal, dear Mr. McInnis, that our boys needed cheerleaders. My mom sewed white gathered skirts for us, and we wore red sweaters. We went on the Muni, and I don't remember for the life of me what we did when we got there.

I also remember that the boys would take their class photo while in uniform.
