Our school gave a Thanksgiving program November the thirteenth, for our Patrons
Day exercise. It was prepared in about two weeks. Invitations written by the pupils were
sent to the parents inviting them to attend.
The program was to begin at two oclock, but it was delayed on account of rain. As
soon as there were enough gathered the exercise began.
First was an opening song by the school followed by prayer. There were recitations,
motion songs, dialogs, and a little play called "The Return" given by the sixth
and seventh grades.
After the program there were talks made by patrons, Miss Ada Baugh, the supervisor, and
Mrs. Estella Tusing, a former teacher. The talks were good.
Everyone seemed to enjoy the program. The music was furnished by Marie Will and Mrs.
Hall. We pupils enjoy the work getting them up. They are a great benefit to us in many
ways. It is to be regretted that our parents do not visit our school at other times and
see what we are doing.
