REPORT OF TEACHER

      We submit the report of our school. The patrons manifest a deep interest in the education of their children. A great many of our pupils will continue in school throughout the year. We take this opportunity of expressing our regard to the worthy trustees who have served the school so well and whom we have always found willing help us in our work.
      We have been enabled by the energetic assistance of the pupils and friends of this community to place in this school the nucleus of a library--a collection of books numbering seventy two volumes. We trust that our successors may add to this collection and that this school and community may soon know the worth of a public school library.

REPORT OF TEACHER

      The patrons of this school are taking a very great interest in the school work. The pupils secured books according to my directions, and their interest does not seem to be retarded on account of tardiness or absence, for tardiness and absence occurs here only to a small extent. The school is progressing nicely on account of the interest which is taken by pupils and parents

REPORT OF TEACHER

      The pupils were not tardy often, but they did not attend regularly. They secured books enough, but did not take interest in them that they should. The patrons do not take a live interest in school work, or at least it is not manifest. The majority of the pupils do not seem to know the value of an education. They are not enough interest in their books.

REPORT OF TEACHER

      The interest on the part of some of the patrons is not as great as it should be to secure the very best results. Owing to the complication of the book law, and the slowness with which many of the books were purchased, several of the pupils could not obtain books and could not study certain branches that they should have studied. Therefore the school is not properly graded; too many are in the primary grade that should be in the intermediate grade. There has been comparatively little trouble in the school. The greatest hinderance to the success of the school is absence. Tardiness also hinders the school, but not such an extent as absence. When a scholar has been absent a few days, if he has not kept his studies up while out of school, he gets behind his classes and in a great many instances loses all interest. But the pupils who get to school on time, and are never absent are the ones who are achieving the greatest results in the school.

REPORT OF TEACHER

      This is my first term of teaching the Twolick School. I find it a very pleasant and agreeable school to teach. Most o my patrons are awake to the educational opportunities of their children and manifest it by sdnding their boys and girls regularly punctually and by securing books for their use. I have established the graded course with few exceptions--exceptions which arose, where pupils had previously gone ahead in one or two branches, or where weak eyes prevented sudying at night. For the good of those who regularly attend, and the citizens who pay hundreds of dollars school tax for the moral elevation of society. I am forced to believe there should be a few amendments to our present school system, such as, "A Compulsory School Law." A higher standard of teachers intellectually and morally, and better renumeration for the teacher's services.

REPORT OF TEACHER

      I have taught this school for six years, and find to some extent the same old Mosaic idea that a pupil ought not study andy branches but spelling, reading, writing and arithmetic until they get so old they become blind and deaf. consquently we must have more books in school. Some of the patrons are neglectful and care les about having their children in school regularly and promptly. We, as parents, hold to tight a grip on our pocket-books, and in many cases fail to supply our children with neccessary school supplies. I think Union District has as good a corps of teachers as any district in the county, and for their energetic work they receive a recompense of all of twenty-eight dollars per month. With one exception we have a good series of text books. Hydes Language is a complete nuisance. Burnside school is needing benches badly.

REPORT OF TEACHER

      I have taught the Hall School for the two past terms, and am pleased with the result of my labor. The boys attend regularly and were diligent in their studies. The greatest difficulty I had was to create an interest in study at home. The girls have not the intnerest in school that is nicessary to active work in education, caused by a lack of interest on the part of parents, by sickness, by protracted meetings, and, parhaps, by the inefficiency of the teacher. Some of the patrons take pride in sending their children regularly to school, while others don't seem care whether their children come at all.

REPORT OF TEACHER.

      The patrons are fairly alive to educational work, though modest in public manifestation. Yet, by talking to the patrons and telling them where you think improvement could be made on the part of their children they are always ready to make neccessary changes for the better. In the main this is so. I have only been troubled in on instance in regard to grading the school. All securd books that were needed. This is my second term n this school, and I know for a fact tht the school has made decided progress this term. Sickness has interfered with this progress of some of the pupils. Tardiness interferes to some extent, but it seems to be unavoidable in the most cases, as the boys have feeding to in winter.

I am very well pleased with my school and the interest the pupils have taken this winter. I had no trouble and must say that the scholars in general were very obedient and attentive to their books. The patrons were very obliging in securing for thier children the necessary books. The patrons in general are persons of reason and judgement, and henc are staunch supporters of the school.

REPORT OF TEACHER

      Some of the patrons took a great interest in the school while others did not. They would not secure the necessary books. I was not troubled to any great extent except that parents would. not send their children regularly and on time.

REPORT OF TEACHER

      The pupils of this school manifest a great interest in a part of the school work. They all spend more time on arithmetic than is necessary, and neglect their other branches. It is troublesome to get a part of them to take a lively interest in some of the work, and to procure books according to directions. Some of them were often tardy and it was almost impossible to get them to be prompt.

REPORT OF TEACHER

      The McPherson school is active and the pupils, with few exceptions, are regular in attendance. There is a lack of interest on the part of some of the patrons. There where a few pupils of the school age who did not attend.
      I think we have a practical corps of teachers in Union district, notwithstanding many of our best teachers have gone to other districts and are employed at better wages.

REPORT OF TEACHER

      The patrons manifest but very little interest in the school work. The trustees are anxious for a good school, but want the teacher to do all the work. I do not believe much in the graded course. Pupils did not secure books accoding to my instructions, therefore I found it very difficult to follow the graded course. The pupils attend irregularly, but are seldom tardy.

      The patrons of this sub-district are very much interested in school work and the education of their children. I had no trougle in getting pupils to secure books according to my direction. I was troubled but ver little on account of tardiness. About four of my pupils were absent a number of days on account of sickness, but never lost their interest in their school work. I had no trouble with stupid or disinterested pupils.

REPORT OF TEACHER

      The majority of the patrons manifest considerable interest in the school work.
      The necessary books were secured after some delay, owing to the exhaustion of the first supply ordered by the Depositary. The precribed text on Physical Geography could not be obtained.
      We experienced no inconvenience from absence or tardiness until the beginning of the protracted meeting, which deverted the minds of the pupls from their studies for several days.
      I send you herewith $1.00 for the catalougues, and will be pleased to distribute my quota of same.

REPORT OF TEACHER.

      This is the first school taught in sub district No. 25. The majority of the patrons take interest in the school work while some of them would not take any interest neither would they comfortable with good blackboards, a primary mathematical chart, good benches, table and chair. We have neither dictionary nor library, but I am doing my best to make the School interesting. The children love to go to school and are seldom tardy. I had no trouble in getting them interested in their studies. The average daily attendance is good.
