Title: Eighth graders cut a graduation rug

Caption: "Eighth graders cut a graduation rug--Eighth grade students at Public School 222 couldn't wait through four years of high school for their first prom, so they staged one of their own in the school auditorium, Quentin Road between E 33d and 34th Sts., to celebrate graduation. The 'rug cutters' busy on the dance floor most of the evening, crowd around the refreshment table during intermission to enjoy the snacks and punch prepared and served by a corps of parent-chaperones. Late arrivals [SCHL 1441] sample the refreshments before venturing onto the crowded floor."
