"One Enchanted Winter Night," or Winter Ball, was once again held at Challenger Memorial Hall at the old Fairgrounds with over 600 people in attendance. 

And 650 students boarded 15 charter buses to attend the 1989 Prom aboard the Queen Mary in the Grand Salon. 

Mr. Dupratt and the 1988-1989 Ubiquity staff

The school newspaper, "Ubiquity showed a brand new look for Quartz Hill's 25th anniversary. The paper was longer, had more articles, added color, and used a different style paper. The Ubiquity staff produced a record 10 issues. The front page featured a new blue Ubiquity desgin with the 25th anniversary logo printed on each side of the banner." Mr. Dupratt continued as advisor of Ubiquity and the editor this year was Tom Stevens. 

Seniors win Powder Puff 14-6. 


The Girls Cross Country team won the Golden League title. 

Again, Wrestling are undefeated Golden League champions with 11 members going to CIF. 

And Girls Track earned their first Golden League title after a 5-0 record. 

The Yearbook recognized the "25-year veterans", the teachers who had been with the school since its inception.  They include (left to right) Mr. Don Crimin, Mr. Benny Ortega, Mr. Jerry Reeves, Mr. Ray Crommett, Mr. Jerry Hoff, Mr. Jerry Broomfield, Mr. Dick Hague, Mr. Don Seiwell, and Mr. Joe Giesler. 

The QHHS 25-year veterans.

Two new teaching faces arrived in the Yearbook, who have continued for the second half of Quartz Hill's 50 year history. Mr. David Wright, who was the Leadership advisor during the 1988-1989 school year (and today oversees the Drama department) and Mr. Tim House, famous for both appearing on Jeopardy, and today being the go-to guy for educational technology questions on campus and teaching in the English department. Finally, Mr. Loughridge served as Principal for the third year. 

And graduating with the Class of 1989 is former QHHS math teacher Leticia Ojeda!


The theme of the 25th anniversary yearbook was "Catch That Rebel Spirit!"
