Staff and students from 1968 remember what it was like to walk into a brand-new Janesville Parker High School.
Blessed with an abundance of talented athletes in a variety of sports, it didn't take Parker High School long to establish itself as a powerhouse in the Big Eight Conference.
Back in 1968, girls participated in water ballet while boys had 10 sports. Ink wasn't allowed in lockers, not even in a school named after a pen magnate. And everyone had to wear socks.
A variety of factors kept Parker High School from opening on time. For the first five months of the 1967-68 school year, students attended school in shifts.
