Sauquoit Valley Central Rural School was organized to give the boys and girls
of the Sauquoit Valley better opportunities for preparation for their life work. The
entire purpose of the Board of Education and principal has been to organize this
school with that in mind and to increase these opportunities as the demand and finan-
cial condition of the district warranted. Young people must have a well rounded
development in mind, body and ethics, in order to be prepared to earn a better living
and to spend their leisure time in purposeful, enjoyable activity in our present age
of competition and multiple activities and diversions.
Your Board of Education has placed in the school five new programs and has
made arrangements for a sixth educational program for the year 1935-1936. The
first program to be introduced was a complete Commercial Course with the excep-
tion of Shorthand. The second course was Vocational Agriculture for boys. The
third course was Vocational Homemaking for girls. The fourth program was music
instruction in our schools with a full time music teacher assisted by teachers from
Myers Band School one-half day a week. These four courses were introduced on
entering the new building in September, 1932. The fifth program was a full time
Physical Education Course for all boys and girls. This program includes intramural
and interscholastic athletics, corrective gymnastics, and a wide variety of games.
Next fall we have added a teacher in industrial arts and drawing who will have
charge of design, representation, an approved Regents course in general shop, and
industrial arts for seventh and eighth grade boys. The girls will take homemaking.
