Two New Departments
Two new departments have been added to high school curriculum: these include Art under the supervision of Mrs. Nina Crossett Hardy, and Industrial Arts under supervision of Mr. Shannon Thornton.
Parents are urged to keep the children in summer school every day if possible. Unless children attend the summer session it will be impossible to complete a full year’s work.
Ice water fountains have been placed in both high school and in grade school in order that plenty of cool water might be available during the hot days.
A new agriculture building is to be completed during the next two months and used for all agriculture classes.
A special Assembly will be held in the gym today (Friday) at 2 p.m. A guest speaker and musician will be present for part of the entertainment and the rest of the program will be used for introduction of new teachers and students. Parents are invited to attend this assembly.
