The Last Time the Leafs Made the Playoffs

KCS Loves the LeafsTonight’s victory by the Leafs over Ottawa ensured that they would be involved in a playoff game sometime next month.  Here’s a look back on the year 2004, the last time the Leafs made the playoffs:

  1. None of our grade 1 or 2 students had been born (and even some of our grade 3s)
  2. We still had only one class in each of grades 5-8.
  3. Shrek 2 was the number one movie and Usher was the top selling album
  4. Our 18 000 square foot Third Addition had not been built
  5. KCS didn’t have social media sites…sometimes I feel it would be nice to go back to this time!
  6. Current Leafs; James Reimer, Phil Kessel, and Jake Gardiner were in high school
  7. We sent home our newsletters on paper in your son or daughter’s knapsack
  8. Glenn Zederayko was Head of School
  9. Elmo was the hottest toy on the market
  10. The majority of students did not carry around cell phones (the phone would not fit in their locker)
  11. Our student population was approximately 220 students – almost 2/3s of our current student body
  12. A daughter of one of our teachers was born on May 4, 2004
    (Toronto Star, Apr. 20, 2013 – Toronto Maple Leafs: Return to playoffs would be first-time experience for these kids)

What have you done since May 2004?
