Public School Opens (4 September 1928)
The public Schools of he city will open September 4th at 9:50 a.m.
Kindergarten sessions will be held in the North Side building in the morning and at the Public Library in the afternoon. The reason for the change to the Library is that an additional teacher has been engaged in the elementary grades. This teacher, Miss Standke, will have charge of about thirty pupils selected from the grade rooms that have heavy enrollments. It is likely that this will be the first six grades. This room will serve the double purpose of relieving congestion in some of the class rooms and also serve as an observation and practice teaching room for the Teacher Training department. Enrollment in this room will be on voluntary basis as far as possible. Further announcement will be made concerning this room.
The Teacher Training department will continue as usual. All members of last year’s class have secured positions for this school year. The department can accommodate about eighteen students. Only high school graduates can be admitted to the department. There seems to be the usual interest in this department, not only on the part of local graduates, but also on the part of Greenwood, Granton, Loyal and Humbird graduates.
The usual courses will be offered in the high school department. The special departments, Agriculture, Commercial, Home Economics and Manual Arts are to be continued.
Although the high school has been comfortably filled during the past few years it has not been over-crowded. We welcome the enrollment of rural school graduates of the surrounding country. No matter what their interests are they will find courses to meet their needs.
For information concerning courses, enrollment, board and room etc., address your inquiry to Principal Wm. C. Hansen. It is not necessary to enroll in advance. Be on hand Tuesday, September 4th, and you will be taken care of in a satisfactory manner.
A complete list of teachers will be published next week.
