REPORT OF TEACHER

      As will be seen from the enrollment, there are forty-six pupils registered in both rooms--twenty-two in the first and twenty-four in the second. Of these, eight are in the upper grade, five being in the last section.
      With the execption of the irregularity of three or four pupils trdiness is the worst fault of the school. It gives the teachers more annoyance than all else combined.
      But little difficulty has been experienced in having pupils procure proper books, except that arising from the inoperatievness of the late school law.
      In general, the parents seem to realize that the future happiness of their children depends largely upon their educational attainments; that the public school is the first if not the only means by which these advantages are secured; that this is not an eleemosynary institution, but is supported by their money: hence, naturally, they are deeply interest in the progress made.

REPORT OF TEACHER

      The average daily attendance for the term was forty out of a total of forty-eight. Owing to the crowded condition of the school the advancement was not as marked as it would have been under different circumstances, yet the pupils and patrons all manifested an interest in the school. An addition will be built to the building this summer which will insure better results the coming term.

REPORT OF TEACHER

      The above report is made out to the very best of my ability. The students are not regular in the prescribed course. Procuring books is the trouble. I did all that I could and believe the parents did what they could to get books. Grant district failed to provide a depository and the adjacent districts refused to sell books.
      Only one family has troubled me with tardiness and thess pupils have not been in school this month. One man has faild to send his children at all. Here are two cases in which we ned a compulsory law.

Yours truly,
W. H. McMillan

REPORT OF TEACHER

      The school lacks the help that parents can give. Not intereste enough on the part of patrons. When they can be led to see it, probably Mt. Clare will be better off as a school district. Of course we find some families here that take a great interest in the school work, but a magority of them are careless about it. The attendance is not good in any of the three rooms, but we do not think it is any fault of the teachers. We hope, as theachers, to see an awakening of the people of this place to the better interest of the welfare of their children.

REPORT OF TEACHER

      This report is as nearly correct as I can make it> Some are not classified as well as they could be on account of not having sufficient books. There are always some parents that do not take enough interest in school to firnish their children books so that a teacher can clasify his pupils. Wire Run has a few patrons that takes a great interest in trying to cultivate their children's mental capacity, while there are few who cares no more for school than some one that never heard of such an institution.

REPORT OF TEACHER

      The school is graded nearly in accordance with the Manual. A few pupils are not in their proper places on account of books. Tardiness is one graet fault with this school, and there are only a few that are studious and taking much interest in their books.
