vssociation has heretofore been
practically a failure so far as
attendance is concerned, though
certainly through 110 fault of its
iflicers, who have always donG
everything in their power to
earry on this exceedingly important
work, but the barrier to
the association's success is that
the teachers and trustees, and
people generally, do not appear
to realize how important and
invaluable these meetings are,
seemingly, 011 this account, they
do not attend them and we all
know how utterly impossible it
is to attain to any dogreo of
success in this kind of work
without the hearty co operation
of the teachers, at least. Teach
ers try to get your trustees interested,
and insist, as you have a
right to do, upon their occasion
ivi c? 1/wnuuii^uy at tiny i (ltd) upuu
these teachers' meetings.
The association will meet
hereafter on the first Saturday
in each month. The program
for February Oth is as follows :
"How can Lancaster county
maintain a live teachers' association?"
by R. A. Dobson of
the Kershaw Graded school.
"Should text books be used
in the first grade?" by R. E.
Mood of the Oakhurst sohool.
"How to beautify school and
school grounds," by Miss Gor
truae ?heror of Dixie school.
"What is condition of school
house and grounds; are any
steps being taken to improve
condition of same?" To bo discussed
by each teacher present.
