REPORT OF TEACHER.

      The parents, with the pupils, seem to show interest in the school. I had no trouble in securing necessary books. I had some tardiness and also some absence but the latter was on account of sickness.
      I will promote a class of six from this room into the upper grade this year.

REPORT OF TEACHER

      The patrons of this School manifest some interest in the school work here but not as much as they should. The officers visit us some times but fail to show their interest by way of advice, Suggestions, etc., yet they seem destrous to see the work going on all right. In regard to securing the proper books mot of my pupils complied with my requirements. There seems to be a good deal if tardiness here and in my opion it has been cultivated, rither than discourage. Otherwise my pupils are very obedient.

REPORT OF TEACHER

      Mr. J. E. Law, Dear Sir -- I would say in regard to books, that in the beginning of the school we had scarcely any books at all, but the patrons became interested and bought some books, but not as many as were needed. The board made no arrangement for a depository. Tardiness and Absence were the sources of some confusion and trouble.

      The school is in good condition and with a gew exceptions the pupils are very studious. We had some trouble in securing the necessary text-books, because no one kept them near here.
      The patrons have manifested a lively interest in the school work in the way of preventing absence and tardiness, but very few patrons visit the school.

REPORT OF TEACHER

      Some of the patrons manifest great interest in the school, but do not visit the school as much as they should. I had very little trouble in getting the pupils to secure the books they needed
      The margority of the pupils attend regularly. A few are very irregular and I found the trouble to be carelessness on the part of their parents. Tardiness was a very rare thing. Quite a number of patrons have moved out of the sub-district, leaving the school small.

REPORT OF TEACHER

      The patrons of the Hasting's Run school manifested a live interest in the school work. Except in a case or two books were secured according to direction. Owing to much sickness the attendance after the first two months was very irregular and the advancement of the pupils was not what it would have been under more favorable circumstances.

REPORT OF TEACHER

      In Submitting this report permit me to say that I have the hearty support both of trustees and patrons. I have good working material, but the progress of the school has been somewhat retarded on account of irregular attendance. In making up the different grades in this report, I must day that most of th pupils are behand in some of the sections. For wat of proper text books it has been impossible for me to conduct my pupils through the grades as prescribed in the manual. This is partly owing to the fact, that the most important books of the series prescribed by the last Legislature have not been contracted for, and the patrons and school officers preferred to await the action of present Legislature before buying new books. The patrons and school officers instructed me to do the best I could with the old books, until the question of text books should be settled. The present school law is a very unsatisfactory (?) to the people, and it is earnestly hoped that the Legislature, now in session, will repeal the objectionable features and give us a series of good text books.
