Office Attendants Beneficial To Students
The office workers have many iobswhich they must perform during
one day of school. Mrs. Beal checks the absentee report while
Mrs. Faust calls a student's parent. These ladies must know where
a student is if they are not at school. They must call the home,
office, or place ot business where a parent works if the parent
does not contact the school first.
Mrs. McCuan smiles as she reads the mail that has come to the
school that day. Frequently she must check back in the records
and look up a former student's record. This helps an employer
to know what kind of person that is going to work with him. She
also works hand in hand with the counselors and Mr. Larsen.
During the school day, Mrs. Faust checks the files to get some in-
formation about a student. These files contain all of the student's
permanent records that attend Amarillo High. These are important
to students who plan to attend college or to get a fob after their
high school training. These records carry grades from first grade on.
The operation of the school would be much less
organized if it weren't for the help of the three
office workers, who assist administration, faculty. and
Mrs. Helen McCuan serves Amarillo High as sec-
retary to the principal. She helps Mr. Larsen and
Mr. Strickland with correspondence and also sends
students' transcripts to colleges.
'Mrs. Dot Beal shoulders great responsibility as
bookkeeper and records clerk. She is responsible for
the sate keeping of school funds.
As attendance clerk, Mrs. Faust has the task of
keeping an accurate record of all absentees and
checking their excuses.
Mrs. Beal uses the telephone very much during the eight
hours that a student attends school. She calls parents or a
student's guardian, the Administration Building and many
other places to check on students or find information that
deals with Amarillo High. As Sandies we owe a lot to our fine
