19 Our Health Program The present day conception of edu- cation includes not only the develop- ment of the child's mind but the preservation of the body-and in this aim we iind Number Nine among the leaders in modern education. The entire teaching force working in cooperation with the school nurse and the Health Squad of doctors have aroused a health consciousness and health pride in every child of Number Nine. The wealth of material exhibit- ed in the class rooms in the way of charts, pictures, aud attractive health posters convinces one of the earnest- ness of our motive in promoting health. VVe faithfully observed Health Day, and welcomed its humane possibilities. On this day the teachers carefully examined the children and recorded the individual physical defects. These findings were later confirmed or re- jected by the doctors and nurses of the Health Squad. Several interested parents were present to witness the doctors' examinations. The results of the examinations were reported both to the parent and to the class teacher and through "follow up" work many of the physical defects have been cor- rected. The correction of these de- fects early in a child's life is im- portant. lf it is not accomplished, he may be handicapped not only in his school progress, but also in his social and economic relations during his en- tire life. Our record to date shows that we have remedied defects as follows: Defects Pupils Teeth ......... . . .433 Vision Defects . . . . . 54 Hearing Defects . . .. . 2 Nasal Breathing . . . . . 29 Cardiac Cases ..... .. ..... 13 Malnutrition ................... 23 Defective Tonsils Qflperationsj.. 21 Medical Treatment of Tonsils .. 8 lVe hope before the end of this term to complete corrective work in many other defects now in the course of treatment. The Schick Test, which is the pro- tective treatment for diptheria, was given in the lower grades to the chil- dren whose parents desired it. An interesting part of our Health Program has been accomplished through the class-room projects on Teeth, Food Values, Care of the Eyes, Foot Health, and various other im- portant subjects. In every possible way we have endeavored to correlate that of the health work with the other subjects for we have been considering' health not as a separate unrelated topic, but as a most important, con- tinuous influence in the chiRT's day. lVe feel we have intieunced to some some extent the home habits concern- ing fresh air at night, hours of sleep, and hygienic habits in general so im- portant to human life. To add stimulus and sparkle to our instruction, several worth-while Health Plays were given in our assemblies. Photographs of these appear in this issue of the Monitor. Health charts, scrap books, and health records kept by individual classes and individuals have given a touch of competitive interest to our scheme of work, and all of these de- vices have been fruitful. fContinued on Page 495

18 THE MONITOR stant at their posts. They are Salva- tore Montefusco and Godfrey Smith. These boys form our School Service. ANNEX SERVICE SQUAD llle are proud of the Service Squad at the annex. The members supervise the yards, stairs, and exits. They re- lieve the teachers of immediate build- ing supervision. Instead of the ,teachers doing all of the work, the 5B3 boys and girls take the responsi- bility of the entrance of the school. In this way they gain practical experi- ence and a sense of pride in their own importance. Service is their prime aim. They are friends to all. These monitors have a strong and healthy and loyal school spirit, and help greatly not only in control, but, even more important, in preparation for civic usefulness and social participa- tion. At their meetings they discuss school needs and helps in gaining 100 per cent in punctuality. Members of this group are: Chief, Albert Peterson, assistants, Raymond Vllenschal, Edgar Grasham, Jack Bow- ser, Marvin llleiss, John Scott, Charles Irving, Alice Ennis, Dorothy Thomas, Kathleen Cusick, Helena Friedberg, Anita Stecher, Edna Karnofsky. - Silent Fire Drill monitors are mem- bers of the Service Squad also. These boys carry wooden painted disks through the rooms whenever we have a fire drill without bells. Their names are: Jack Bowser, John Tito, Albert Peterson, Ewart Bateman. The Service Squad boys who wear school colors and who carry messages to the main office from the annex office are very efficient and reliable. Their service is always prompt and courte- ous. The members are: Charles Irving, Edgar Grasham. MEMBERS OF HOUR FINESTH Although not wearing a fine blue uniform, only the badge of their rank, have you noticed the members of "Our Broadway Squad?" How efficient they are? WVe are sure Capt. Gianakos will be a future Commissioner of Police with as capable a force of deputies as he has now. Modern days bring modern ways, and our girl patrol is a very close rival and as able to fill any position in line of duty as their fellow mem- bers. The duties of these boys and girls who so ably assist the Faculty are to supervise and keep discipline in the yards, on the stairs and at the exits. FORMER TEACHERS Since our last issue of the Monitor, two of our fellow teachers have left our ranks. Miss lVakeman, who never knew any other school but No. 9, even as a child, has left us to enjoy a well-earned rest. She retired on March seventeenth. Vile heartily wish her good health and many nappy years. Mr. Onken, our athletic coach, has advanced to a position in the Contin- uation Schools. VVhile we congratulate him on his promotion, we miss his cheery smile and his helpful coopera- tion. ' MOTHERS' CLUB- The Kindergarten Mothers' Club has had an unusually successful year. Many of the mothers of new children have come to the meetings and there have been several who speak little English. Different members act as in- terpreters and over the congenial cup CContinued on Page 493

20 Class Notes 8Bl Now that our last tc1'm in No. 9 is drawing to a close and Graduation Day is approaching, those who expect to graduate are painting imaginative pic- tures of themselves joyfully receiving a diploma and soberly shaking hands. It is but natural for us to look ahead to the happy side of this event but we are wondering how many have given any thought to the days following graduation. Our past in No. 9 has been spent profitably as well as happily and all are grateful for what has been done. Our future is in our own hands and it is up to us to show our gratitude. lVe who are going to high school can show appreciation by trying to reflect credit and glory on dear old No. 9. If any SBI graduate should have to go to work, let him carry with him No. 9 spirit and courage which always brings success. Vllith heartfelt gratitude toward our principal and teachers, the Class of June, 1930, now regretfully leaves No. 9. KNOCKS AND BOOSTS SB1 Louise Cianfrini-Louise Fazenda.
