Cat’s Paw, Fifth Grade Notes
We are sorry we forgot the diaries last four weeks, but we will try to remember others. Monday our teacher was sick with flu. Miss Helen Choate, our substitute, was very nice to us and we enjoyed her kindness a whole lot.
Well, Diary, here I am again. What have you been doing? I bet you were lonesome last week. I hope not tho.
We had Assembly last Wednesday and had a visitor, Mrs. Henry Bass.
Just think, we have gone six months to school already. This year has flown.
What will you do when school is out? I guess just die of lonesomeness. Mrs. Wilson’s room is leading us in the contest this week. Our room is going to give a minuet, most of us are. It is so pretty. It has stopped raining for a few days. In geography we have to spell fifty words and believe me they are not easy. Mildred Jean McCreary
P. S. I have left out the most important thing. Mr. Crossett visited our room last Friday. He sure made us laugh. He wrote the longest word in the English language on the board. It was transcubatantiationablessitudinitity. Can you beat it?
It is pretty weather.
We are sorry to have so many absent and to have our teacher ill. Miss Helen Choate is substitute.
We have a program Friday; Assembly Thursday. All but 4 are here today. Had a test last Friday in arithmetic and geography. The girls are spinning tops now and playing marbles. Billie Marie Claburn
Well, old pal, whatchudoing?
Tuesday Miss Sargent picked thirteen pupils in our room and put them in the thirteen states over which Washington was the president.
Are still having the minuet. Our teacher said we improved each time we practice.
Wednesday Mrs. Dowd told us a story about the little engine. Very interesting; am sure the smaller children liked it. Jasamine Honsinger
Well, old pal, what are you doing these rainy days? Sitting by the fire, I guess. We had a test on Italy, Spain, and Portugal. Oh, I am leaving out the most important thing. We had Valentine Friday and I think everyone got some pretty valentines. I did. I’m sure you did. Friday at noon we got the feast, for we won the contest. You see, I’ve been telling you we had a cinch on it. Mr. Pinson was nice to all of us. We were nice to him, too. Gave him a box of candy. Veda Mae Ellis
