Tho Stato Teacher anHoclation will
bo bold at Lincoln from Ducembor 20
to 20, and a nuinlir of tlio city loach
ors will probably attend.
Tho avorntro uttcndnrica for tho drat
throe uionthu of this .school year has
boon Dearly 90 por cont,which la based
upou tbo membership, tho highest per
oent for any three consecutive nioDths
There have been 149 pupils, or
enough to fill three school rooms, more
in attendance overy day on tho average
dur'njr tho three school months juBt
closed than during tho corresponding
throe months of lust year.
Tho board of education at their last
meeting decided that tho vacation at
tho holidays should commence with
Saturday, December "3, and close upon
Monday, 'January 1, tho schools open
ing on Tuesday morning, January 2.
Tho teacher's rogistors for the last
four yoare have jut been ordered
bound, ono volumo for each year, mak
ing a com pleto and permanent record
of tho work and attendance of every
pupil in tho city for that year. As
these records will be bound each year
In tho futurp, in a few years tho grad
uatcs can secure a complete history
of their school life from the "C" class
in the first primary to the Senior class
in the High school, showing every day
they were present or absent, every
time they wore tardy, overy month's
standing they ever received in every
study in all grades, and their teachers
for ouch year. At present those rec
ords run back to Soptomber, 1803.
Tho exorcises given In most of tho
rooms just prior to Thanksgiving were
largely attonded, but the lack of ac
commodations for visitors in the school
rooms has caused the superintendent
to suggest to the school board tho ad
visability of permitting the pupils in
the grades to use tho auditorium of
the now High school building, when
completed, in the evening for such
entertainments as they wish their
parents to attend. Tho plan which
tho board discussed last Monday even
ing wa9 to have tho primary rooms
combine to give an entertainment for
their parents ono evening, tho gram
mar grades another and the High
school another, these exorcises to be
given about eight weeks apart. By
this plan the fathers as well as the
mothers could have an opportunity of
attending, which would bo a source of
pleasure to them and of encourage
ment to both teachors and pupils
These entertainmonts would be with
out any charge of admission, only the
parents of pupils in the rooms taking
part, however, being invited each
night to avoid overcrowding. The
taking part in debates, dialogues, plays
and general literary exercises de
velops tho self-reliance of the pupil
and is a legitimate part of school work.
It serves to break the monotony of
their regular work, and has a tendency
to keep some in school who might
Otherwise drop out. It can be made a
spur to better efforts in other lines by
refusing to permit any pupil to take
part in any of the exercises whose
work does not come up to a satisfactory
standard. This will be tho rule in the
schools next year.
