More About the Toy Shop The little house used for a toy shop in the first grade room, I told you about last week, is just large enough for. some of the small chil dren to get into if they do not stand up straight. I think it is more than four feet high. It has two stories. Since last week it has had paper painted like brick put over the out side. It looks like a strong brick building. It also has cotton on the roof for snow. Strings dyed like silver color are hanging from the edge of the roof for icicles. Santa Clausis looking out of one of the upstairs windows. His face Is near ly half as large as the window. Ther are several dolls looking but of the windows too. A few blocks are put around the house for a fence. There is a littje arched gateway. Inside the fence are some sleds, rolycoasters, and a little automobile. The rolycoasters have bed-casters for wheels. Right outside the fence on a table were velvet hats with feathers and dresses for dolls all put up on sticks for sale. This is the way it was on the day we marched by It on the last day of school. I hope the things for sale were bought and put on somebody's Christmas tree. I also think Santa Claus has been taken away for he would be lonely during vacation. I hope lie took the dolls along with him too. Second Grade Candy Boxes In the second grade we saw a fine lot of candy boxes on a long table in the back of the room. The children had fixed the boxes. They had painted them black to hide the printing and other things. Then (Continued on Pag Two) MEDALS AWARDED FOR GAMP HONOR AT THE Y. M. G. A. The boys of Richmond have made tha Y. M. C.
