PRINCIPALS INVITED TO SEND IN NAMES FOR MONTHLY
The monthly honor roll of the Portland grade schools, as published
in the Sunday Oregonlan from week to week during the school term, has
proved Itself a source of pride to parents and an Inspiration to pu
pils. Many of the schools are represented in the honor roll, but The
Oregonlan would like to have every grade school there. Parents from
several of the districts not represented thus far have sent in requests
that their school be included. The Oregonlan willingly will do this if
the principals will co-operate, as the names eligible for the honor
roll cannot be compiled except through the principals. The Oregonlan
therefore respectfully invites the principal of each grade school in
Portland to compile and send to the school news editor the names
from his or her school eligible for the honor roll.
Pupils who have perfect deportment and attendance records and
who have an average of 90 Or better for the month are eligible.
