OPENING OF SCHOOL.
The Edgefield Graded and High
School will open the li* 18-19 ses
sion at 0 o'clock, Monday Septem
ber IGth. All pupils who failed to
make their grades, and those who
had to quit school before the session
was over last year and who desire
to stand examination for advance
ment to the next grade, please be
present on the opening day. If it
is impossible to start to school at
the beginning, be present at the
opening so as to be assigned your
grade and given a list of the books.
President Wilson has been em
phatic in his request to keep the
schools open and as near as possible
doing the normal work. I trust
every boy and girl who possibly can
will attend from the nrot to the last
day. lt is the patriotic duty of
every boy and girl to be in school,
to tit themselves to meet the respon
sibilities which come with citizen
ship. I trust parents will not al
low their boys to quit school to ac
cept the apparently good job. The
government wants them in school,
and unless it is an absolute necessi
ty, there is where they should be.
We invite all our patrons and
friends to meet with us on the
Dpening day and to come to see us
during the session.
