NINTH GRADE BEHIND THE FIFTH GRADE?
by Kim Austin, George Burnette,
HMrs. O'Connor, will I be able to
graduate to the Fifth Grade next
year?H was the question asked after
three members of the Ninth Grade
visited the Fifth Grade and spoke to
their teacher, Mrs. McGee.
The reason for the question was a
fifteen minute class of French taken
by the Fifth Grade. The difficulty
of it startled me. I saw words I had
never laid eyes upon!
The members of the class are par-f
ticipating in an HArithmetic Race.n
It consists of class work only.Every
time a student hands in a perfect
paper, he may color in a square after
his name and put a gold star in the
center if it was a test.
United States History is another
subject of interest. The class begins
with Columbus and travels through
history until they reach the present.
They must also learn to spell and
place on a map, all the states of the
Another chart upon the wall is a
Book List. After a student reads a
book on his own, a black star is
placed after his name. When a student:
has given an oral or written book
report, he receives a red star.
The most interesting chart is the
one entitled HRecess Partners.H The
purpose of this chart is to make new
friends and see the good qualities
in them. Each week a person has a
new recess partner who plays with
him for one week.
Some other activities of the Fifth
Grade are meetings with the Sixth
Grade for singing on Fridays. Assem-
blies have been given on Social
Studies, Bird Pictures and Parts of
WORKING IN A TREE HOUSE
by Janalee Meyhaus, Don McCarty,
In the Sixth Grade many interest-
ing and unusual things happen. With
Mrs. Henry these thirty-one enjoy
living in a Htree housen where they
not only see the sycamores sprout
in the spring and many different
kinds of birds, but have fun re-
trieving a paper or two that Hacci-
dentally flew out the window.n
Each year they elect two boys for
the daily job of raising and lower-
ing the flag. Bruce Larson and Jon
Thomas were chosen this year. For
this they receive a letter of
appreciation at Graduation.
Sixth Grade pupils find new exper-
iences and new problems: Dancing
lessons are given by Mrs. Baker in
preparation for the Sixth Grade In-
vitational. Next in importance are
country reports. They have the
privilege of attending a few Junior
High assemblies, the Thanksgiving
Service, and they celebrate their
last Play Day.
Here each learns to multiply and
divide decimals and fractions.This
is seldom accomplished without an
occasional noon spent in the room.
A sneak preview of history from the
first real civilization down to
modern times is given. A new world,
the world of French, under Mr.
Dishian's guidance is entered.
In art, under Mrs. Richards, the
Sixth Grade makes world globes,
masks, and clay figures. In science,
under Mr. Richards, they study
natural science. In music, helped by
Mrs. Purtle, they learn to sing in
harmony. Mrs. Jeffries teaches the
girls the hula and the boys a stick
What a wonderful grade this is!
they learn rules of spelling, of
each vowel, and what each says. This
makes the children sound out words.
There are no pictures in the Carden
book. This helps each pupil to form
his own picture in his mind.
The students also have a science
of animals. They draw pictures of
cows in the air or fish in the meadow
for the purpose of distinguishing
the habits of animals and on what
Once every two weeks, as a reward
for corrected workbooks, some students
have the privilege of an art period.
An occasional party is even allowed.

OUR READING LABORATORY
by Todd Culbertson
This year the Seventh Grade was
very fortunate to receive the SRA
Reading Laboratory. The method used
is that of questions and answers
after the reading of power and rate
builders. The reader then corrects
his work and puts his grade in his
There are also listening skills,
in which the teacher reads an
article to the class. Then the
class answers questions about the
article. There are only six listen-
ing skills, but they are very
interesting. In a recent discussion,
not only did the class agree that
the articles were interesting, but
almost everybody has improved his
reading in one way or another. We
hope that the future Seventh
Grade will enjoy it as much as we
three years ago had a record auction,
they spent some of the money they
obtained on improving their garden.
Now, the present Seventh Grade is
doing their best to keep the garden
up. They cared for the tree that had
been injured last summer. It has
responded fully to the care, and we
have thoroughly enjoyed the garden.
We hope the future Seventh Grade
will appreciate it as much.
OUR FAVORITE ASSEMBLY
by Christine Carlson
We have had a number of assemblies.
Among these were our assembly on
astronauts, our ballad assembly, and
a few others. Our very favorite one
was our Lincoln and Washington
Debate. This assembly, under the
direction of Mrs. Dlouhy, was in the
nature of a debate on Lincoln and
Washington. Half the class was ar-
guing for Lincoln and the other half
It took much preparation to get
the facts used. When the debate was
over, we asked Mr. Nelson to decide
which man was the greater. We thought
that we would fool him, but he
us and made a decision. His decision
confirmed that of the class: both
men were the greatest of their time.
by Van Van Tress and Don Vogel
The boys go to science every Monday
Wednesday, and Friday. We read a
paragraph and then discuss it. Light
is one of the subjects we have stud-
ied. We have learned about how the
light rays can be bent so that all
the colors of the spectrum can be
seen. Occasionally we see a movie
illustrating the unit we are study-
ing. After we finish each unit, we
report on it.
