County School Notes written by County Superintendent, Oscar Warp Sep 26, 1918

Alta JOHANNESEN of District No. 61 underwent an operation for appendicitis Sunday September 15th. We hope for her early recovery.

Miss Oline LARSEN of District No. 55 is arranging for a program and box supper to be held on Friday evening, October 4th, From all reports a good patriotic program is planned and she is anxious to have a large crowd present.

The War Savings society at No. 28 is making plans for a meeting on Friday night. September 27th. Mr. JONES phoned for speakers, whom we are glad to furnish. It is also hoped that special music may be had.

A successful school program was given in connection with the War Savings society meeting in No. 1, Friday evening, September 14th. I. J. THOMSEN conveyed the speaker, Dr. I. C. RANKIN, together with the musicians, Miss Jennie BOSTROM and Messrs. BUTLER and LARSEN. A good time is reported.

The school visiting this week started with Miss Velma CHRISTLIEB, who is located in No. 19 this year. There are only seven pupils enrolled in this school, five of whom come from No. 44. Good work was done by the pupils, especially in reading. Everything was orderly, both inside and out.

Miss Lillie LARSEN teaches No. 20, and has in attendance a bunch of interested pupils. Well prepared lessons were recited. A large supply of much needed books has been ordered and the room has been painted in harmonizing colors, making a world of difference in the looks of the building.

At No. 39 eleven pupils of the twelve enrolled were present. They were enjoying games during the noon hour while we inspected the book condition with the teacher, Miss Freda MILLER, who very wisely spends most of her time at the intermissions on the grounds with her pupils. At the close of the noon hour the pupils came in and went quietly at the preparation of their lessons. The school building has been re-sided and painted, which adds very much to the general appearance Everything was neat and in order both inside and out.

Miss June BURCHELL is the interested teacher in No. 36, and we found twelve of the thirteen pupils present, all diligently at work. Neat work was mounted upon the walls. The younger pupils were making chains for decorative purposes. Miss BURCHELL is conducting valuable work in letter writing as language lessons.

Miss Jessie MOONE, the first of the experienced teachers to be visited, is teaching her third term in No. 15. The fact that a teacher stays three years in succession speaks more highly of her ability than a few words which we may say in these columns from time to time. The work was well planned, and all of the seventeen pupils were busily engaged in their various tasks. The board has caused the outhouse doors to be screened to obstruct the view of the open doors. Everything about the grounds and building was very neat.

No. 58 "has taken its school house to a cleaning," and it has made a big improvement in the looks of things. The house has been painted both inside and out, the floor oiled, desks and furniture varnished and everything put in "applepie" order. Miss Dena THElS is teaching her first school here with ten pupils enrolled, all of whom were present. We enjoyed our lunch with the youngsters. Good work was noted in both teacher and pupils.

County School Notes (continued)

No. 41 is one of the largest schools in the county, there being thirty-eight enrolled, thirty-four of whom were present and comfortably seated in new single seats, which are quite an improvement over the old double seats. We were glad to note thet Miss Nanna NOEL, a beginner, is doing well and has her work planned so that she will know just what to do next. The board is causing the erection of a new windmill, which will be a decided improvement over having the pupils go to the neighbors' for water. We hope the time will soon come when every district will do this. A service flag with four stars hangs on the wall and we wish to commend the idea. There is perhaps not a district in the county that does not have its soldier and the enables us to keep th_________ ____(words are missing)

Miss Violet GRAY _____ No. 5 this year with an enrollment of nineteen pupils, who had excellent lessons: We were glad to note that the seating had been changed so that the seats fit the pupils now instead of the pupils having to fit the seats as formerly. We are glad that teachers and boards are co-operating in this matter of seat adjustment, and we hope before next fall every school in the county will see that the seats are properly arranged. Miss GRAY is doing very excellent and original work, especially training the pupils in the use of the dictionary.
