School Ready to Open
The Caddo schools will be ready to open on Monday, September 3rd. All teachers have been employed for the term, and the buildings are to be made ready for occupancy.
Plans are being made to make this the very best school year possible. It is the aim of the school administration to make each year better than the preceding one.
The teachers again wish to ask the patrons for a continuance of the whole-hearted co-operation which has been given in the past. The problem of education for the child is so great that no one institution or organization is able to do the job by itself.
Again it might be mentioned that it is hoped that every school child in the district will enroll in the beginning. The child should be started even if it will be necessary for them to stop awhile during the cotton picking season. Every parent should consider it his duty to see that his child is in school every day that it is at all possible. Children who are permitted to stay out of school unnecessarily develop a dislike for school that is hard to overcome. The whole educational future of the child may be ruined.
Yours for a successful school year, O. E. VanMeter
