REPORT OF TEACHER

      Most of the patrons patrons showed an interest in the school. In nearly all cases pupils were provided with the books in sccordance with the teachers directions. There were a number of cases of tardiness which detracted from the interest somewhat A few attended so irregularly tht they accomplished but little. In some cases the absence was unavoidable.

REPORT OF TEACHER

      In compliance with your request I submit my report. I had some trouble in regard to the promotion of pupils from one reader to another. Some children, and parents, too, think, as soon as they go through a reader, that they are ready for a higher one. They do not consider how many times they have been absent while going through, nor do they care whether they are graded. Two elements, at least, should enter into the determination of the fitness of a pupil for entering the reader above, 1st. The judgement of the teacher. 2nd. The test given by the teacher. I believe in monthly examinations. I find my pupils derive great benefit from them. More interest is shown on examination day than at any other time. Most of the parents manifest an interest in the welfare of the school. I have had the hearty co-operation of many parents.
