Vol. 18 SISSETON, ROBERTS COUNT*, S. D.. FRIDAY, JUNE 1(3, 1911—10
Splendid Work of City Schools
There have been so many good
things done by the Sisseton
School during the year ju&tt past
that- wo perhaps omit several of
them in our resume but among
those we note particularly are:
First on the list, after (the
school had been reorganized and
put inline running order, was the
five number Lyceum Course,
which netted after all ex
penses were paid for hall rent,
lecturers, musicel artists, etc.
Second: The Teach rs Glee
Club was organized and was wry
beneficial to the teachers as
well as a source of pleasure to
the community whenever any mui
ical members were scheduled for
an entertainment or for the
many social functions of the sea
Third: is the High School Or
chestra. Music hath power to
charm and .soothe and who can
estimate its inftrinsi value as an in
centive to a nobler manhood an:I
womanhood, the pleasure radiat
ing froim such a source, how man
homes and lives are touched by
ths soul of music, or the practic
al benefits derived from just such
an orchestra of bright young
people to help out in musical pro
gram when needed.
Fourth: There were the three
special programs— Thanksgiving,
Washington and Decoration Day.
Tlie door receipts from the two
former have been used fco pur
chase and place good reliable
books in the school library, and
the latter, a free will offering to
the Veterans of the G. A. R.,
and W. R. C., was given on the
school campus for which the W.
R. C. took occasion, to publicly
thank the faculty and pupils.
Fifth: There were the two
home Declamatory contests th
door receipts of which were used
to defray Jt-he expenses of the con
"tests and to aid in sending the wi
#K.r, Miss-Ruby Peterson of whoa
the press notices were very fla:
taring to /the district and state
contests, held at Aberdeen ami
Vermillion in which Mi's Ruby
won first plac? in the, forme
and (third in the latter.
Sixth: We also sent a con
testant, Cla.vfton Schmidt, to the
Normal Declamatory contest at
Aberdeen and Pr-of. Geo. Nas
said some very compliment,arv
things about our representative.
Seventh: Rev. Bush was se
cured ito give a lecture- for the
benefit of the fa.mine sufferers of
China, the door receipts, with the
sums collected in the various
grades amounting to- *30.(0.
E.gMh: The Art Exhibit, the
first of its kind ever held in' Sis
seton, netted a profit of $12.00
which was expended for copies of
the masterpieces to be used in de
corating and beautifying the
various grades.
Ninth: Three exhibitions, vis
ited by about 800 patrons and
others, were held at different
times and at the close of school
shipped to Huron for display ait
the State Eair in the autum.
Tenth Judiciously expended
$150 for much needed supplies fo
the physical liyboratory.
Eleventh: The door receipts
from the class play, a success
financially and otherwise, were
used in defraying the expenses of
the commencement exercises.
Twelfth1 Money from the var
ious programs purchased and pla
ed about 500 books in library, a
mong them being 20 volumes of
journeys to other lands, hitt'oric
a.1 stories, biographies, etc. These
have been drawn out by the pu
pils at the rate of 300 per month.
Thirteenth: Also purchased
400 supplementary readers, for th
grades, placed 50 copies of song
books in the High School, put in
a set of music readers thruout th
school and had music daily and
systematically taught in every
Fourteenth Eight readers
were scanned!'in the first grade,
eight in .the second, seven in the
third, five in the fourth, and so
on up through the other grades.
Fifteenth: Received, from
various sources and localities, and
used, tern industrial exhibits, (the
wheat, cotton and cocoa being es
pecially fine and instructive..
Sixteenth: Put in a regular
course oil ethics and physical cul­
ture with text books in ,the hands
of teachers, and followed the
State course of study which
makes our pupils this year com
petent to enlter any school of
like class or grade in the state.
Seventeenth1 Physical exam
ination ot' about 400 children re
sulted in better physical condi
tions, belter sanitation and many
visits to physicians, dentists and
occulist.s to remedy existing
troubles before becoming chronic.
Eighteenth: Five sanitary
drinking fountains, electric lights
a t'ir-e ^onjr, drum, triangle, two
hundred foot"rests, looking glas
ses in all the rooms, sets of meas
ures and barrel of oats for practi
cal d'liionstration in number
work, three sand tables, a bulle
tin board in the High School, a
set of foreign flags, two dictioa
aries, three baskets halls in the
grades, a shot, a vaulting pole an
a discuss were added from time
to time, in the school, and a notli
door was also inserted so as to
facilitate marching.
Nineteenth: A Band of Mercj
was organized in the fourth grade
and a foot ball purchased in. the
same grade.
Twentieth 46 copies of Cur
rent Events and 6 copies of Lit
tle Chronicle were used weekly ir
the grades as were also copies of
American Boy and Girls Com
panion. German was also taught
in grades below the High School.
Twenty-first. A Literary So
ciety was organized in tlie. High
School and several debates which
brought out considerable latent
talent on the part of the pupils,
resulted therefrom.
Twenty-second: Tlie boys
athleitic team did some very goo
work, considering the length of
time for preparation—Right here
we pause to say that you can't
build athletics in one year. One
foot ball and three base ball game,
were worn by the boys, while th«
girls basket ball team did them
selves proud.
Twenty-third: An outline
book, complied by Prof. Mossman
for the work in language, ar|t,
and Nature Study in the grades,
was a great aid in simplying and
correlating those .studies and a
great, time-saver. The art work
consisted of water color, studies
of masters, great paintings, coir
struction and drawing, Prang's
outline, being used for the latter.
Twenty-fourth1 We had th"
pleasure of: examining the daily
registers used in the different
rooms and found t-he.m tlie most
convenient comprehensive a*vi
servi -eaM of any which we had
ever seen before. They were in
sections—one for each grade—
and a.t the end of the veair were
collected, complied and bound in
one volume for future reference
Twenty-fifth: In the enumer
ation of all the good things done
by the faculty and school, sup
ported most, loyally by the Board
of Education and paJt-rons, we a-1
most-'but not quite^-forget to mei
tion the four prizes, amounting
to $40 which were as follows:
The Knappen Letter Prize, $10:
Kennedy English Prize, $10 the
Zenith Club Ancient History Priz
$10, and the Advanced U. S. His
tory Prize, $10, which were awarr
ed, after very careful markings
by competent judges to various
puupils in the school.
Twenty-Sixth Then we had
Commencement week, with ser
mon, addresses, class play, toasts,
banquet and graduating exercises
to keep green in our memory as a
fitting climax to whalt has been
a very pleasant as well as profit
able year, as Mr. Rask, the Presi
dent of the Board of Education'
remarked on the occasion of the
annual banquet, the schools this
year, under the present manage
ment, were the best ever had in
Sisseton and many of the patrons
echo his sentiments. Our school
is certainly one to be proud of.
Let the good work go on.
