The school board is composed oi some ot the most progressive of Alvin's
citizens, men with vision, interested in the school and community. They have
worked harmoniously and unseltishly for Alvin's tine schools. A forward-
looking building program, pleasant conditions for learning and teaching, and
plans tor a community college to open next year are evidences of the school
board's line york.
Mr. McDaniel, who is completing twenty-five years ol service on the board,
has stated his intention to retire at the end ot his present term.
The faculty of Alvin Public Schools is composed of the superintendent,
four principals, sixty-two teachers, and the nurse. All teachers hold degrees,
and thirty-two have masters degrees. The average salary, exclusive of
administrators, is 353583, and each teacher has, on the average, 14.3 years
For the first time the faculty is this year 100 per cent in belonging to the
National Education Association, While it has long been traditional for the
faculty to be 100 per cent in the Texas State Teachers Association. Superin-
tendent Welch says it is a consolation and a feeling of security to have back
of him this type of faculty, as well as a fine school board and interested

Dear Boys and Girls,
The 6-3-3- plan was instituted in Alvin schools in 1938-39
with the junior high school housing grades 6, 7, and 8, having
A T an enrollment of 283 students and a faculty of nine regular
Q teachers and seven part-time teachers. ln 1940-41, when the
twelfth year was added, grades 7, 8, and nine were offered
in junior high school. This plan is in effect today, with 301
' H students and a faculty of twelve regular and eight part-time
teachers. The curriculum is organized to continue work in the
'basic tool subjects and to give, in grades 7 and 8, a number
of exploratory 'courses which we term "broadening and find-
ing" CB G FJ.
The student activity program gives students a laboratory for learning and
for putting into practice democratic ideals of citizenship. The Student Council
serves as a channel through which students may participate in school govern-
ment. The guidance program aims to help each student iind fields of interest
to him and to direct his abilities toward a successful life. Individual guidance
is given each student to help him become better adjusted emotionally, physi-
cally, and mentally. We hope we are doing the things which Will bridge the
gap that was so big between elementary and high schools in the old tradi-
My admonition to you boys and girls of junior high is to conduct yourselves
as thoroughbreds, remembering that "winners never quit and quitters never
