SOMH IMPORTANT INFORMATION
AK to tho High School in Walhalla.
Eleventh Onde I? Needed, *
Superintendent Marion K. Frost
was in town several days this week
arranging for the opening of tho fall
session of the Walhalla High School.
He has returned to Spartan burg, but.
expects to move his family to Wal
halla during Ibo next, week or lon
days, and will occupy tho Dukes cot
tage on (Miurch street.
School will open on tho fl rsl Mon
day in September, which will Ins tho
fi th day of the month. All pa ron is
arc urged to send their children in
on the brat day if possible, in order
that the work may be uniformly bo
gun.
lt is further hoped that wo can
have n large attendance in tho High
School from tho Kural Graded
Schools in our surrounding districts.
Wo intend, If attendance will justify
it, to put on the eleventh grado. This
is essential for two reasons: For
those desiring to go away to college
the work done in the eleventh grade
ls necessary before students will bo
allowed to enter. To stop short of lt
therefore, entails expense of going
to a preparatory school for work
that wo should do at homo.
The second reason ls that those
desiring to leach may do so when
they obtain a certificate from tho
eleventh grade and attend an author
ized summer school. This work enti
tles them to a State certificate, so
i for this class of students it is placing
a handicap on our school not to bavo
tho eleventh grade. So WO strongly
urge those who tool; the tenth grade
work hero last year to como hack
and take the eleventh grade this
year. While wo urge them, wo
cordially invite any others wv., will
to come in and join us. We must
have one hundred in the High School
next year to procure State aid. (
We aro also trying to arrange to
put in a commercial business course,
including shorthand, typewriting,
business forms, etc. Your. presonco
will help in that.
All students In the summer school
from outside the district will be re
quired to pay two dollars per month
tuition, payable nine dollars at- tho
beginning of each half af tho school
session, and all students In town and
outside will be required to pay tho
usual incidental fee of fifty cents
each nt the beginning of each half
of tho school session.
Further Information will bo pub
lished later.
DOA RD OF TRUSTEES.
CHAMBER OF COMMERCE.
Don't forget to-morrow (Thurs
day) night, 0.1 fi o'clock-the (/bam
ber of Commerce meeting at tho
American IjCgion Hall. Every busi
ness mnn of Walhalla is urged, to at
tend. Your ideas and energy uro
urgently needed for the future
growth of our town and county.
COME! THIS MEANS YOU! ?
