Tomorrow, we in- crease our study of world ge- ography with an emphasis on transportation and com- munication. CONSUMER EDUCATION Increasing numbers will study the technique of intel- ligent buying. The future of the consumer depends upon his ability to select carefully the commodity best suited to his needs. HARRIET E HENDERSHOT GUIDANCE DE,N ' O. Guidance should be an integral part of every phase of education. Students have particular needs that must be recognized and satisfied. To fulfill these needs, students must be given opportunities to grow and develop in meeting successfully situations in all of the important phases of life. All aspects of an individual's development are interrelated. His occupational success in life may influence his health, his emotional maturity may have a bearing on his social adjustment, and his educational opportunities may be influenced by his environment. lf it is true that good citizenship in a democracy requires a person who is not only self-directing, but fully aware of the problems and needs of other people, then the best kind of guidance would be the type that develops the individual in making his own decisions and choices. The school program at Argo Community High School is made up of ten periods a day, - class room instruction and study hallsy two lunch periods are scheduled. Class sponsors advise students regarding courses of study, procedure at class meetings, and class parties. ln the spring of each year the freshman sponsor takes charge of the testing program, tintelligence and achievementl, of all incoming freshmen. Freshman Day is arranged before the close of the school year, and the members of the Iunior High School visit the various departments of the school, attend a special assembly program which has been arranged, and have lunch in the cafeteria. This serves as the begin- ning of the orientation of freshmen to a high school program. The cumulative record is taken care of by the administrative staff of the school, and it is placed at the disposal of all faculty members at all times. A cumulative record system attempts to give a detailed evaluation of the student's total performance in school life: observation of a student's conduct provides valuable information for future reference. Parents attend the regular Parent Teacher Association meetings which are held each month during the school year. They are invited to attend an as- sembly program and later enjoy the service of the cafeteria, if they so desire. After the business meeting, a program pertaining to some phase of home-school- community relations, is arranged. The parents take an active part in the group discussion, tnereby stimulating a closer relationship between parents and teachers. Conferences with parents prove helpful in adjusting pupils to particu- lar interests and abilities. The home room period provides an atmosphere for group counseling. Those things are discussed that are pertinent to the level of the various home room classes. A committee usually has charge of the meeting, and the teacher listens to the discussion and gives an opinion when necessary or offers helpful information. Some of the principal subjects discussed are: school customs and traditions, habits of study, conduct, citizenship, character, leadership, history of the school, honor clubs, social behaviors, care of school library, course of study, and vocations. The extra-curricular program of the school affords opportunity for the student to develop courage and self-competence in all areas of human relationships. lt includes many types of activities, - clubs, assemblies, plays, operettas, school functions, coronation programs, tcrowning of queen of football and bas- ketball activitiesl, chorus work, and orchestra and band entertainments. ln the modern school of today visual aids have become an integrated part of the educational program. They provide concrete visual experience, develop desirable attitudes, and stimulate further activity on the part of the student. Executives from industrial districts of the various communities have given talks at assembly programs and to senior groups, concerning occupations and job placement. Students are given opportunities for interviews, and as a result many students are placed in responsible positions because of these experiences. The various organizations of the community take an active part in school and community relationships. The Superintendent and Board of Education are fully aware of the needs of boys and girls and are eager to support new trends and developments. Vv'e are advancing in guidance in our school but there are many goals to be attained. The effectiveness of a guidance program is not determined by the size of the school or the number of teachers on the staff. The guidance service, to be successful, must discover the abilities, interests, and needs of the student, and motivate him to the pursuit of a worthwhile program in the life of the com- munity in which he lives.
