Monday was Labor Day and no school sessions were held that day. There was a joint meeting of the school board and all of the teachers held Monday forenoon, Superintendent D. E. Peters outlining his program and policy or work for the coming year as far as could be done thus early.
Tuesday pupils were enrolled, text books given out and lessons assigned. In the high school 210 were enrolled with prospects for a considerable increase. The freshmen class numbers about 100 and is probably the largest freshman class in the history of the school. In the Teachers Training Department 15 enrolled with several more likely to enter.
In the grades there are approximately 140 in the South Side rooms and 90 in the north Side Rooms.
