One week from Monday school will begin in Greenwood and surrounding districts for the coming year. Numerous changes and improvements have been and are being made at the school house so that better accommodations will be had this year than ever before. A partition has been put in the physics room up stairs so as to give an extra recitation room. The grammar grade will have the north room upstairs this year and the room heretofore used by that grade will be used by the second primary which the school board found it best to add to the course, thus dividing the work in this department and giving better results all around. The teaching force for the coming year will be made up as follows: Harold Veeder, Mauston, principal Matie A. Patch, Stevens Point, assistant principal Eva Miller, Greenwood, grammar Inez Palms, Greenwood, intermediate Della A. Agreen, Neillsville, second primary Mrs. B. O. Dodge, Mauston, first primary These are all experienced and capable teachers and the patrons of the Greenwood schools are to be congratulated on securing so well recommended teachers as they have for this year. The surrounding schools, so far as we have been able to learn, will be made up as follows: Larson district - Viola Dutcher, Greenwood Beaver (La Tart district) – Effie Andrews, Greenwood Hemlock - L.
