Grammar School News
The grammar school is back to regular work since the promotions have been made. A number of new pupils have entered for the second semester of school.
The picture of the school building and children, which was taken a few days ago, has come. It is very good and large, showing every pupil plainly. Bernice Braudrick was ill with influenza the latter part of last week. We are glad that she is able to be in school again.
Camille Cornett is ill with the chickenpox. We hope that she recovers soon so that she will be back in school.
A number of students have been absent this week due to illness. The fifth and third grades in Miss Wood’s room served hot chocolate Tuesday.
It is said that we can learn better through the use of more than one of the senses, and the grammar students are trying to sell enough candy to buy a moving picture machine to reveal geographical pictures, pictures of hygiene, history and the like. The candy came Tuesday morning and it was found to be good, wholesome candy. A greater part of it is milk chocolate and we don’t believe that you would regret paying five cents for a bar of it. Help us get our machine.
The pretty weather is surely appreciated by all of the pupils, after such inclement weather over the weekend.
A little girl who entered school last week said that she didn’t know whether or not she had a father, but when asked who her daddy was she answered, “Oh! My daddy is Dan Marshall.”
Times will change! A little six-year-old girl was heard this week complaining that Santa Claus brought her a pretty doll when she’d much rather had a tricycle.
