SUPPLEMENT TO THE ST. JOHNS REVIEW, SEPTEMBER 13, 1912
Schools Open Monday The New Novelty Works
It IS Our Rule
Kverythiug is In readiness for
the new school year. The board
have been and arc making many
, improvements for the coming year.
Ail buildings have been thoroughly
renovated, floors oiled, scats and
desks retouched, in fact, every
thing put in tint best of condition.
The North school has received two
fresh coats of paint without and the
annex at the Central school looks
like another building with two
coats within and without.
The course of study has been
, materially improved by adding
Manual Training and Sewing. Sev
eral hundred dollars' worth of tools
and benches have been placed in
the annex for manual work, which
will be given each week to all class
cs above the fourth grade. Miss
Watkins is a graduate of the De
troit Mauual Training school and
has installed a number of shops
with marked success. The board
consider themselves fortunate in ob
taining her services for the; coming
rear. Miss McDanicls, who has
md charge of the drawing for the
two years, will introduce the sewing
in the grades above the fourth. In
the grades below she will place
hand-work in basketry, raffia and
weaving in connection with her
regular drawing classes. The
weaving of mats and rugs with the
use of looms in the primary grades
will come in connection with this
work. Miss McDauicl'u phenome
nal success bespeaks the results
she will obtain this year in these
new lines. Oregon City' was a
strong competitor for her services
this year, but St. Johns could not
afford to lose her.
A number of new teachers will
strengthen the grade work. Miss
Jefferson of Wisconsin, Miss Romig
of Oregon City, Miss Parmelee of
Gresham, Miss Pratt, a former
teacher, but who has been doing
special work at the State University
urc among the new teachers.
Mr. Wilcox, of the university of
Indiana, will have charge of the
High School Athletics in connec
tion with his other work there. The
board are placing the new gymna
sium equipment in the gymnasium
at the High School. This phase of
school life is expected to be well
taken care of this year.
In all, the management of the
schools are desirous to keep pace
with new conditions that arise from
year to year but aim to be conserv
tive In all these nutters of changing
conditions. The practical life ap
peals to all and this should be the
aim of our schools.
