(The Second Greenwood High School)






Memories—September 3, 1900 (Greenwood Gleaner):

Numerous changes and improvements have been and are being made at the schoolhouse so that better accommodations will be had this year than ever before.  A partition has been put in the physics room upstairs 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.  Another improvement made is by having molding placed around every room so that in hanging pictures hereafter it will not be necessary to drive nails into the walls and so disfigure the plaster.  The blinds, some of which have been broken and out of order, have been put in working order.  Other minor improvements have also been made both inside and on the school grounds.
The teaching force for the coming year will be made up as follows:

Harold Veeder, Mauston, principal.
Matie Patch, Stevens Point, assistant principal.
Eva Miller, Greenwood, grammar.
Inez Palms, Greenwood, intermediate
Della A. Green, Neillsville, second primary.
Mrs. B. O. Dodge, Mauson, first primary

October 12, 1900 (Greenwood Gleaner):

The members of the G. H. S. L. S. have decided to have a fine program and a good supper at the Woodmen hall Friday evening.  The price for the supper and program will be the small, modest sum within the reach of all, namely, ten cents.  Now most reverend father and mother and doting sisters and brothers, on the nigh of Oct. 12, 1900 A. D., you will don your best clothes, you best filled pocketbook, your most pleasant look and repair to the Woodman hall, where you will sit down and partake of the most bountiful sense of home inspiring repast that ever your eyes rested upon consisting of coffee, cake, rolls, baked beans, chicken, celery, pickles, pumpkin pies and other eatable things too numerous to mention in this my first poor attempt to enlighten the villagers of a coming event.  Then will follow the best program ever given in Greenwood.

October 19, 1900 (Greenwood Gleaner):
“Necessity is the mother of invention.”  More black board was needed in the recitation room and Miss Patch, because she couldn’t easily make a blackboard, invented a blue board, on which charcoal is used instead of chalk.

Therefore! O' ye fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters, come to the Woodmen hall Friday evening with your filled pocketbooks and most empty stomachs.


Leda Williams has been absent a few days this week on account of sickness.


The Freshman class will have examination in physical geography Thursday.  They are very anxious to note their progression.


A few days of nice weather has been immensely enjoyed by all the pupils.


The botany class had their final examinations last week.


Peter Peterson has entered the Freshman class.


The U. S. history class, after much trouble, has finished the study of the thirteen original colonies.


The disorder of the papers, magazines, etc., on the reading table Monday shows that the scholars are will posted on the topics of the day but not very well posted on putting things in their places again.


The Scholars of the high school watched to see if Hick’s prophecy for the 8th came true, but the storm resembling the Galveston hurricane failed to appear.


Evidently from the attendance at the Republican Rally the high school people are as greatly interested in the political questions of the day as the “next one.”


September 14, 1900 (Greenwood Gleaner):
The new scholars this year are: Gerda Nelson, Guy Boyce, Marian Draper and Horace Brownell.
