You know you went to FHS when you remember...
...school not being closed unless it was 5 degrees or colder and 2 feet of snow or more...until the new school was built, then being cancelled as soon as it started to snow due to the school being on a dirt road.
...the admin said the new building took 4 minutes to get from one end to the other with no one there and yet you still managed to get to classes from one end to the other in less than 2 minutes.
...your school was known as 'Falcatraz' due to massive brick walls in every direction, blocked cell signals, and two full glass walls.
...when you see it from 20-30 miles away, and all you see is a massive brick.
...you had tornado drills in the hallways when both side walls were full wall windows.
...you rode a horse to homecoming because you could.
...you have had your football team rivals drive onto the football field, tear down the chain link fence, and plant a 6 foot tall pine tree in 3' diameter of cement in the middle of the field on homecoming day and still play the game that night, undisturbed.
...having a horse, donkey, or camel as a homecoming float is normal.
...every car in the parking lot is covered in dust.
...it was and still is, the only school in the county that doesn't allow you to go off campus for lunch.
...you know it is the most energy efficient school in the state.
...you still have school even when the power goes out thanks to wind and blowing snow and the building temperature drops into the 40's.
...you weren't scared of the principal...the principal was scared of you.(the current principal when I left had gone from elementary school admin. To hs. Principal)
...spirit days and tailgating parties meant 4wd trucks of all sorts being decorated, and BBQing from the bed of the truck.
...bonfires at your school consisted of a 50' diameter of plywood, crates, and old barns in the parking lot next to open fields...and the fire dept.
...band was more popular than any other class in the school.
...prom cost you 70$ to get in.
...boots, cowboy hats, and belt buckles were nothing but normal.
...the size of your books wouldn't fit in your locker no matter how hard you tried.
...the art classrooms were where you hung out when you had nothing to do, no matter whether you liked art or not.
