REPORT OF TEACHER.

      The patrons take an active interest in the school. They visit the school quite often encourage the work and to some extent help along the work. The pupils are supplied with books as far as is convenient. I have not been troubled to a great extent with absence or tardiness and still more than is good for the work in general. While this is the case there are others in this community who do not take advantage of the school opportunity.

Yours Obediently,
SAMUEL H. RITTER.

REPORT OF TEACHER

      I cheerfully submit report and enclose amount for catalogue as proof of a cooperation with you in an earnest effort to increase general interest in our common school work. While a few patrons care little and know less about our schols, and their children there are many substantial evidences of the disposition of the parents and pupils to recognize the school as a most inportant factor in the sub-district. Parents have cheerfully responded to calls for books &c, in all cases.
      Trustees are liberal to secure any needed supplies. I recommend the patrons of Marshville school to my successor as interested and friendly, and the pupils courteous, kind and intelligent.

REPORT OF TEACHER.

      Patrons, as a rule, manifest a live inerest in the school work, and the pupils have in most cases secured books according to my directions. I find tht the interest of the pupils is retarded on account of absence and tardiness.

Yours Respectfully,

REPORT OF TEACHER.

      Prtrons did not take the interest in school work that I think they should. The pupils did not have books or all that they should have. I tried to furnish books or all that they could take the studies as required by the school manual.
      I was troubled a great deal by the pupils being absent. The girls took more interest in school work than the boys did. A few of the patrons did not seem to care whether their children came to school or not. I think a compulsory school law would be a great benefit to the children here.

REPORT OF TEACHER.

      I have nothing in particular to say in regard to the school, exept it is very poorly graded. So many in the sub-district drink they are not able to buy the needed books, that it is impossible to grade the school. I think the Manual and Graded Course of Primary Instruction should be more carefully regarded in our public schools.

*Neither Absent nor tardy during the term.


      This school is progressive. The scholars, though most of them are very small, take a great interest and are progressing rapidly. the School is troubled to some extent, and the interest of the pupils retarded by tardiness and absence. Nearly all the parents manifest a great interest in the school, and are very careful to see that their children have all the necessary books. etc. Parents can greatly aid the efforts of the teacher and prevent much tardiness by simply rising early enough in the morning to allow the children time to get to school. A pupil loses interest in the class when he misses a recitation two or three times in a week.

REPORT OF TEACHER

      This school has no graduates this year, for the reason pupils failed to pursue the branches required to complete the course. The trouble is, pupils who were interested in theri education have aroused in themselves an ambition to excel in certain branches, for example arithmetic. many of the parents are prompting their children to become mathmeticians, to the neglect of other branches, and to the great disadvantage of the child's best interest. The greatest trouble the teachers meet in this school is that that the patrons fail to see the advantage of all-round development of the mind. Patrons do not manifest as much interest in school work as they should. Pupils secured a part of the text-books requested. There were many cases of tardiness, and a few cases of truancy, which retarded the progress.

REPORT OF TEACHERS.

      Several of the patrons took a great interest in the school, yet many failed to get the necessary books. The progress of my school was very much retarded on account of absence caused by sickness, &c. There were more cases of tardiness than was neccessary, yet my school advanced well, and I think it was very satisfactory.

REPORT OF TEACHER

      The Pattison Fork School is situated in a farming community near the town of Salem. The district is dividd in two divisions the right and left branches of Patterson's Creek which necessitated the placing of the school building in the lower end of the district. Iregular attendance is caused by the great distance, which fully three-fourths of the pupils have to travel to reach the school, yet our average attendance is ninety per cent, for the term. The patrons take great interest in the education of their children, often conveying them to and from school when the weather would not permit their walking. The parents always furnished books willingly at request, which aids largely in the perfecting of our graded course. The trustees heartly concur in that which will advance the higher culture of their children
