left school having enrolled on Jan
6th, 242. The average nitendnttre
f r the fourth month was 1S0 2 or
74.4 per cent, of theenioMment.
The number enrolled during the
month ending Peb. 3. was ft; the
number that left during the month
was 12. so that the total number
I enrolled to Feb. 3, was 284, and the
number remaining on the roll 0.1
Feb, 3, was 235. The average attendance
for the fifth month was
197, the per cent of attendance
based on enrollment was 76 1.
The attendance for the hve
months was as follows; Frsi
month 167, second month, 199,
third month, 18 r fourth month
l9o, fifth mphth 179; making an
average attendance of 183 2 for
the five months,
The first half year ended Jan.
30. The reports of scholarship for
fur the half year were not as satisfactory
as might have been wished,
but better than for the single
Several reports showed an average
grade of scholarship above 90
per cent., and the following pupils
made 90 per cent, or nJore in olj
their classes: JJlysses Hansel,
Davis, S,bermau Ferciful, Ann
atte Cox, and Raymond Myers.
Annette Cox, Mary Mullins, Samuel
Sowder and Lillie Mullins were
neither absent nqr tardy during the

or more in all their cla.ss.es., there
are more wh,o qre. do.in,g good, and,
faithful wqrk which will show in
their reports a.t the end of the second
And now we wish to say a few
words dtreptly to the patrons.
Many of you perhaps noticed that
tb.i roport of your child or of the
child under your care showed a
grade rather low iu deportment.
This is often due to a number of
unexcused absences which urns' of
course be counted against the de
portment of the pupil'and for which
you are often responsible in your
failure to send a written excuse to
the teacher. This is not difficult
for you to do in case it is necessary
for yo to keep yqqr child, out of
sphool, and, sjqce (t is the only sure
way for us to keep a .true record we
bolieve it is not asking too much
of you to send us such written ex
cuses Let us urge upon you ngain'i
the importance of regular and
prompt attendance. It is scarcely
possible for an ordinary pupil to do
the necessary work of school if he
is ahsjnt as much as one fifth of
the time. And now as we begin
u.joii the secend half year let us
urge upon vou also the
of attendance until the end of
the session for unless a pupil condones
his work to the end of the
terra and takes the final examinations
be. cannqt be promoted to q
hgher grade for next year's wrk.
