REPORT OF TRUSTEES NEWBERRY
In compliance with the act governing
the Newberry school district we
are submitting our report for thi*
leision 1921-1922. The session began
Sept. 12th with the largest enrollment
since the organization of
our school system. Below we are
' submitting for your convenience the
enrollment by grades with a division
ai to boys and girls. You will notice
an increase over that of last year,
especially is this true of the high
tchool. We are also submitting for
.irrvnr fnrmiflfaratioTi the average at
tendance, which by comparison with
that of last year, will show that there
hss been a greater increase in th?
average attendance than there has
b^en ever the enrollment of last session.
This is especially gratifying to
us. because it proves that our patrons
are more than ever interested
in the education of their children and
realize the importance of regularity,
in attendance. This increase in the j
average attendance also shows that
the health of the pupils has be *n bet- j
ter than it has been in past years, j
Whooping cough, diphtheria, inf.uen- J
23, and chicken pox have given some
trouble in school. A majority of the
"parents whose children had contract"
id these diseases were careful to
dBey the quarantine laws, and co
tolerated with the senooi autnoriues
in their efforts to keep contagious
diseases from spreading.
*We have been handicapped by lack-i
cf class room space, especially was
itfs true in the high school and in the
ttegjo school, but .we are glad to re-!
"pott that this trouble will have been
'removed by next session. We have
just completed a new school building
for thie negroes. We wish to com-;
m'ent the regroes of our district for;
their interest and financial support
in this work. You will see from our
financial report that the negroes have
contributed $1800 for the new school. In
additibn to this they have obligat
'ed themselves to raise ar>oui $4uu
more. In was through the aid from \
the negroes and to that received from
the Rosenwald fund that we were
able to erect the size of building we
We are adding six class rooms to
the h'gh school, enlarging the audi- J
torium to a seating capacity of 600, j
and installing a first class heating
plant. We completed last January, aj
-"'gymnasium for the high school. Our1
policy is to give tfie pupils of our dis-(
trict &n opportunity for physical as
well as mental development.
In addition to Speers Street school ! '
we are enlarging four of the present j
xriass room,s auumg two new cwm ,
rooms, building an auditorium with a
Seating capacity of 300 or 400, and
'a first class heating plant of the WarTen
Webster system. This addition
vili take care of the increase in the ]
-gramma? schools for sometime. . j
Our report would not be complete!
did we riot mention the generous sup- j
port the cotton mills of our district
-are giving the schools. Both at Oakland
an? at Mollohon we have newhandsome
buildings, erected and
Equipped by these mills, and at the
Newberry cotton mills they are plan-!
ning to remodeT and enlarge the pres-'
ent building:. You will see from ex
"aminktioji of our financial report that
these mills are doing more than furnish
and equip these school buildings,
but are supporting in a financial way;
our school system. Mr. Shealv, the'
mill school inspector, says no mill
presidents in the state are doing more
for the schools than our are doing. f
We have had very few vacancies
to fill among our teachers. We believe
we fjave a corps of teacheTG second
to none in the state, and we think
it fortunate for our schools that we
were able to retain for next session
?0 many sf the present teachers. On
'April 25 -the Great Teacher called
'from her earthly activities Miss Beriii'6s
Martin, one of our most faithful,
teachers." She was a tearner ;:i West
/End school, for almost nineteen years.1
v"$he was interested in her school work
but she iras active in the upbuilding
of the school community. Her deeds
of mercy'and love were many.
We are ^submitting hereto attached
a financial statement of our actions
during the-session. This reoort is not
complete as to receipts because thecounty
treasurer was not able to compete
his books due- to the postpone-;
ment of payment of taxes. We are
also filing with the state superintendent
of education and with the county
superintendent of education the an-;
nual report of the schools, as requir- j
ed by the laws of the state and this
report is also made a part of our report
