The enrolment was, boys, s 10, girls, 17. total 37. Attendance, boys 12, girls 12, total 24, a loss of I in the enrolment and of 7 in the M ittendance. St Rodrigae School. By reason of inability to secure a in teacher for this s hool in the early se part of the year, the session did not is begle until July. when Miss Fanny g Knobloch, having completed her sea. 31 sion at the Lsgarde School accepted the appolntment to the Rndrigne !Ishooi. It was possible to give but SvemoethI of tuition to the pupils _ ýthe fact that I I, slelpujo Iola ths earmetl t !s of 3 to the atsendance, is Onion Academy. ai This is the only school in th3 parish a kept open for ten months In the year b by public funds. This is made pos- a aible by a special tai furnished by the town of Thibodaux. At the be ginning of the year, Judge A. F. Knoblock was the principal, with the vi tollowing assistants: Misses Clara levron, Mary L'sferest, Frances Mal- cl hiot and Emma Kent. Of these ass- t Istants, Miss Maihiot and Miss Kent ni are Normal graduates, while Miss A Levton and 3liss Laforest are teach- si ers of many years experience. After a the vacation to the summer, the school opened with the same staff of! teachers except that the principal was changed to Mr. A. J. Dupuy, of New Iberia, a Normal graduate, with six d years of experience as a teacher. The h session h's beeu a very profisable one in many ways In fact, the number of pupils enrolled has been so large a as to render it impossible for the five b teachers engaged to do full and ade- t quate justice to all. In spite of the fact that an annex was made to the i building last year at the cOwt, be it a said, of the town of Thibodaux for G the building and the desks, yet the 9 accommodations are not sufficient. There is a crying need of another addition to the building, and the em ployment of another teacher. At my n suggestion some of the pupils in the lower grades were taught only a half day, on the plan pursued In the city t of New York for the same reason of a ecegestious of the class-rooms by g too sa sembr of pupils, but arest~ sseIneastery, sad sor ib ditions ought to be improved so that every child of educable age presenting himself for admission to this school, u may be enrolled and given the full attention that is his due. The school house has been painted and repaired j the present year and is now much 6 Improved in appearance. One of the most pressing needs, and which should receive the prompt attention of the School Board is, the purchase of eight single desks for the Principal's y department. The enrolment was as follows: boys 120, girls 94, total 214. Attendance, boys 93, girls 73, total 166, an increase of 30 in the enrol ment and of 27 in the attendance. Mathews School. Mr. Marshall Thompson, principal, Miss Mary Kennedy, assistant. The record shows a falling off of twelve in the enrolment and of ten In the at tendance, slthough the figures are still satisfactory. Both these teachers are first grade and gave most efficient service. We have lost Mr. Thompson, who will teach In another parish. The enrolment was, boys 35, girls 37, total 72. Attendsnce, boys 20, gui. I 26, total 46. Hatherme SchooL Mr. Alcide U. Lasseigne, first grade, teacher. The enrolment has shown aI gain of 1 and the attendance, a lossI of five. The figures, the present year are: Enrolment, boys 15, glirs 13, total, 28. Attendance, boys 7, girls 9, iotal 18. Piece School Mr. Joseph H. Price, first grade, teacher. This school has bees die-' osmalmced sad mersed with the aewly Uhs~he ieDesss Sehoel, at the OCt0Or Thsre wes a ossof 8ls the esnilusat and 6 In the attedance., the numbers this session being suM cleat to tax the utmost energies and attention of the teacher. It is coal dentiy expected that at she new school, which will be under the man agemest of Mr. Jos. H. Price, as principal, the number of pupils will be very largely increased. The enrol ment this year was: boys 25, girl. 25, total 50. Attendance, boys 17, girls 14, total 31. Lefort School. Mr. W. C. Lorraine, second grade, teacher. A very large decrease in the enrolment and mo the attendanep is the record for the Lefoit4 School The enrolment fell off from 61 t- 29, and the attendance from 32 to 20. I am informed that the situation of the school is unfavorable and that if changed to the neighborhood of the chapel, the result would be a large, incorease in the numbers of pupils enrolled. For the present year, tb. enrolment has been, boys, 14, girls 15, total 29. Attendasce, boys 8, girls 12, total 20. aRouissel School Mrs. .14. IC.

The School Board loses the ser- tt vices of an excelleat teacher in the at resignation of Miss Use. She has had charge of the Thibodaux school for the past two sessions and has given is universal satisfaction to the patrons. al A decrease of 6 In the attendance S and of 6 in the enrolment is to be 11 noted.

This atranoed teacher had charge of this school for the present year and did excellent work. g Ste has accepted an appintment in g another parish where the salary is g better.

An Increase of 11 in the enrolment and t S6 inl the attendance are to tb noted. i The numbers on the roll and in at- i d tendance would justify the appoint s mont of an assistant.

The as patrons are so well satisfied with the II services of their teacher that dunmg 1i- the course of the session they handed I, him a handsome purse, which they is had made up, as a token of their ap predation of the able manner in which he had discharged his duty. It o, is to he hoped that other comiannitie's to in the parish will imitate this goo is example, as regards the teachers em te ployed In their neighborhood schools. ad Enrolment, boys 21, girls 25. total m 46.
