School Doings


Monday evening, May 25, 1908, the eighth grade will give their class play, "The Hickory Holler School," in the town hall, at eight o'clock p.m. As the name implies the scene is that of an old fashioned country school.

In addition to the play there will be several numbers given in the line of music and declamations given as interludes. The evening entertainment will be completed by a strong tableau.

Come and see what the environments of our forefathers may have been. Admission ten cents.


The Juniors give the Seniors a reception this evening, at the Colburn building.

The outside schools will close next Friday afternoon, each one having a program followed by a picnic, at which the parents of the children are expected to be present.

The last meeting of the Literary society for the year was held at the school house last evening and an exceptionally good program was rendered. The work of the Literary society shows a marked improvement over that of the first of the year. For the occasion of last evening's meeting an exhibit of the students' school work was made, by blackboard drawings and also geometrical figures made of pasteboard and used for demonstration purposes.

The closing exercise of the Humbird Schools will be held next week as noted in the program on this page. The grammar room will give its play at the town hall on Monday evening, and on Friday they will picnic on the south shore of Lake Emerson. The intermediate department will also hold a picnic next Friday. The primary department will unite in rendering a very good program next Friday forenoon in Miss Clark's room. On the program are also a number of Memorial day selection. In the afternoon the teachers and scholars of those two departments will have a picnic in the grove on the school grounds.
