Rural School Notes (13 Apr 1916)

A community meeting was held Friday evening, March 24, in Dist. No. 2, Withee, Miss Isabelle Bast, principal. A program of regular school work was enjoyed by a good crowd. A beautiful $75 Victrola was used for the first time. A talk on “The School Today and Twenty Years Ago” was given by Mr. Mikoianis, the school clerk.

March 31st was Parents’ Day at the Lombard School, Miss Rychwalski and Miss Reisinger, teachers. Regular classes were held and regular work exhibited. A special effort was made to demonstrate domestic science and manual training which were introduced into the school for the first time this year. Excellent work has been accomplished in these arts, and great interest is being shown by teachers, patrons and pupils. Articles made by the pupils were auctioned off at the close of the evening. As a result of the sale, $9.20 was added to the fund which the school maintains for carrying on this work.

Teachers’ examinations have been held in Greenwood and Owen during the past two weeks. On April 13, 14 and 15 they will be held in the courthouse in Neillsville, and this will close the spring series.

Many of the country schools have been closed this week because of the condition of the roads and the teachers have been enjoying a rest at their respective homes.
