READY FOR SCHOOL
Which begins at Greenwood, Monday, September 3
One week from Monday school will begin in Greenwood and surrounding districts for the coming year.
Numerous changes and improvements have been and are being made at the school house so that better accommodations will be had this year than ever before. A partition has been put in the physics room up stairs so as to give an extra recitation room. The grammar grade will have the north room up stairs this year and the room heretofore used by that grade will be used by the second primary which the school board found it best to add to the course, thus dividing the work in this department and giving better results all around.
Another improvement made is by haing moulding placed around every room so that in hanging pictures hereafter it will not be necessary to drive nails into the walls and so disfigure the plaster. The blinds, some of which have been broken and out of order, have been put in working order. Other minor improvements have also been made both inside and on the school grounds.
The teaching force for the coming year will be made up as follows;
Harold Veeder, Mauston, principal.
Matie A. Patch, Stevens Point, assistant principal.
Eva Miller, Greenwood, grammar.
Inez Palms, Greenwood, intermediate.
Deiia A. Green, Neillsville, second primary.
Mrs. B. O. Dodge, Mauston, first primary.
These are all experienced and capable teachers and the patrons of the Greenwood schools are to be congratulated on securing so well recommended teachers as they have for this year.
