5 Leaves From the Principals Note Book Vnder the guidance of Mr. Rainey over a period of twenty-three years, P. S. No. 9 has become an outstanding school not only in athletics, but also in scholarship. The new principal will strive to keep up this reputation. VVith the able assistance of Mrs. Carole and Miss Hoffman, and with the loyal sup- port of the teachers, he feels confident ot' the continued success of the school. Thanks are due to Mr. Janowitz who so willingly undertook the task left by Mr. Onken on his promotion to the Brooklyn Boys' Continuation School. Mr. Janowitz has taken charge ot' the athletic training of our boys, and has devoted afternoons, Satur- days and holidays to preparing them for baseball and the various athletic meets. Under his direction, Public School 9 has again won the District Championship in swimming, and also the City Championship. The office table is again graced with the Swimming Cup won by our Championship Team. The cover design was drawn by Mrs. lrene YVilliams of the Art Department of James Madison High School. Mrs. NVilliams is the mother of M'alter E. NYilliams of Class QB3. VVe wish to thank her for her interest in the school. Our Parents' Association is function- ing well under the guidance ot' Mrs. Otto M. Stern. The May meeting was particularly interesting and profitable for those who attended. Representa- tives from tive of the neighboring high schools outlined what each of the schools offers to prospective students. Among the speakers were Mrs. Evelyn NV. Allan, principal of Girls' Commer- cial High School, and Mr. Albert L. Colston, principal of Brooklyn Tech- nical High School. The principal wishes to thank the Kindergarten mothers for their co-operation with the school. Miss Lonergan and Miss llubbell have found them of invalu- able assistance. Our children again have an oppor- tunity to learn to play the violin. An afternoon class for beginners has been tor-med under the direction of Mr. Max Weinstein, who has been assigned to the school by the Director of Music of the Board of Education. A second group, of experienced players, has been organized and will play at the Graduation Exercises. It is intended that this group form a nucleus for a school orchestra. Two groups of chil- dren, one of beginners and the other of advanced players, are being in- structed in piano playing by Mrs. Olga Kolanos, who has been assigned to the school. The success of the Monitor this June is due to Miss Mahlman, who is the business manager, and to Miss Purdy, the literary editor. Through the ex- cellent co-operation of both teachers and pupils, it has been possible to pub- lish this magazine. Although more may be heard re- garding our record in athletics, we are not behind in scholarship. This term, Superintendent O,Sl162l examin- ed the pupils of the city schools in reading and spelling. Vile are happy to say that Public School 9 made the

Welcome, Dr. Korey 'tDr. Korey is coming. He is due tomorrowf' The word spread like wildfire through the school. The teachers paused in their work and wondered. "NVhat is he like? Is he young or old? Is he nice? What will he think of us? How will we get on with him?" These and many other queries were uppermost in the minds of all. The following day P. S. No. 9 was alert, ready to receive its new princi- pal. Accompanied by Mr. Van Dam, our Superintendent, Dr. Korey visited each class room. From the very outset, we were drawn to him. His kindly manner and fine administrative ability have so permeated the atmosphere that we teachers feel called upon to congratulate the school and to pledge anew our loyalty and support. IVe also wish to take this opportunity to extend to Dr. A. J. Korey, our new Principal, a sincere and hearty wel- come. Public School, No. 9, Vanderbilt Ave. and Sterling Pl. Brooklyn, N. Y. June 20, 1930 Dear Dr. Korey, NVe have been awaiting this issue of The Monitor to say "Hello" to you. It is our sincere hope that you are as glad to be here with us as we are to have you. The children of "45" have lost a good friend but their loss has been our gain. Loyalty to dear old Number Nine has always been our motto. We in- tend to continue being loyal pupils of Number Nine and hope that in a short time you will have reason to be very proud of us. Sincerely, Your Boys and Girls. IN APPRECIATION The following is an excerpt from a letter sent to Supt. Van Dam by the teachers of P. S. No. 9: "The faculty of P. S. No. 9 takes this opportunity to voice its apprecia- tion of the able and successful man- agement of the school by Mrs. Carole during Mr. Rainey's illness and his absence on sabbatical leave. Her ready helpfulness and sympathy in our many tribulations have merited our heartfelt gratitude. 'We tender this testimonial as our appreciation of a heavy burden that has been nobly borne." Brooklyn, March 21, l930 To the Teachers of P. S. 9, Brooklyn Ladies and Gentlemen: I acknowledge with very great plea- sure the receipt of your letter of ap- preciation of the able and successful management of the school by Mrs. Carole during the sabbatical leave granted Mr. NVilliam M. Rainey, late Principal of P. S. 9-II1 and since his death. I have already conveyed to Mrs. Carole personally my appreciation of her work. Very truly yours, EMMANUEL F. VAN DAM, District Superintendent.

6 THE MONITOR highest score in Districts 25 and 27, the two districts supervised by Super- intendent Emmanuel F. Van Dam. In one respect we have room for improvement. That is in our record for attendance. Vtle have had a great many children absent in our lower grades because of measles and other children's diseases. This, of course, could not be helped. It is of absences due to avoidable causes that we wish to speak. NVe are concerned not so much with making a record as we are with helping our children progress normally from grade to grade. One of the most serious causes of retarda- tion in our schools is poor attendance. A pupil who is absent misses the day 's instruction, and comes to school the following day unprepared for he does not know what lessons have been as- signed. He thus loses two days in- stead of one. We have, of course, as will be found in all schools, some chil- dren who prefer to stay away from school. But, we also have parents who unwittingly encourage their off- spring in this tendency. NVe do not Want children who are sick, to come to school, but very often an imaginary ache or pain will disappear if the par- ent insist that the child attend school. Prolonging a week-end in the country to include the following Monday, or taking children out of school for a week at a time to accompany the mother on a visit out of town, does not give the child the proper attitude toward school work. It often results in non-promotion and the dreadful habit of failure. PARENTS' ASSOCIATION The Prospect Hill Parents' Associa- tion is organized to foster a program for parental education and to estab- lish a co-operative spirit between the home and the school. Vile meet on the second Tuesday evening of each month from October through June. Our meetings are both interesting and instructive. NVe have had some out- standing speakers with us during this past season. All parents are urged to join us in the fine work we are doing. April 2, 1930 Dr. A. J. Korey, Principal, The Prospect Hill, Brooklyn, N. Y. My Dear Dr. Korey: A short while ago we sent you a list of those pupils whom you had sent to us from your school. The list showed the results of their efforts dur- ing their first term with us, and very probably proved interesting to you. Since that time we have made further statistical studies based upon the achievements made by the pupils of the various schools. NVe are pleased to inform you that your school stands among the leaders in results achieved, and that we have appreciated the op- portunity of carrying forward the education of these boys. Vile shall be very glad to welcome to Boys High School's entering class in June additional boys of the type which has made this fine record. Should you find it convenient to do so, please call upon us that we may make you acquainted at first hand with the work we are doing. Sincerely yours, J. ALLISON STEVENSON, EUGENE A. COLLIGAN, Principal.
