Gath, Tenn., Aug. IS, 1800
To the Standard:
I commenced my school at the
High Land School house on the 21st
of last month. The number of pupils
enrolled the first morning was 57, and
the number has increased since to C7.
The average attendance during the
month was GO. ,
I have never taught a school in
which pupils took more interest or
worked better. All are anxious to
be present in ...the morning to take
part in the opening exercises.
Our first monthly examination was
a grand success. It being the first
ever held in this school house, it was
something new and interesting. I
have found the monthly examina
tions to be a great help in securing
an interest, and recommend other
teachers to try them.
I appreciate the interest manifested
by both pupils and patrons. The
good people of this section are thor
oughly aroused as to the importance
of educating their children, and I
trust the interest may continue to
