I.feiy. 1952 ,-JZa4r.G_l_ o f 'I'l h During the school year 1951- 52 Chadbourn School has had isuch improvenent in some fields and now has some equipment that has been needed for several years.V/e planned the first of this year to get some of the things we had needed in our school and with the cooperation of the students and citizen of our tovm and com munity, lir. Brown, principal,re ports that vie have had excellent progress in achieving these things. Chadbourn School was deter mined from the beginning to have an activity bus. \Jith the pro ceeds of the Halloween Carnival, sponsored by the P.T.h., we made a down payment on it and got the bus a few weeks before Christmas. It is used a great deal for ath letics but various other groups have ma e pleasure and education al trips since its purchase. Our lunchroom has been re markably improved with its nev; tile floor, kitchen equipment, water cooler,and the new paint job v/hich add up to a very at tractive and convenient cafe teria . Miss Smith has needed new science equipment and supplies for her classes and now not only does she have new equipment but tables with faucets and outlets as well. Next year vie plan to remod el our Home Ec. Dept, into a modern up-to-date one. Miss Sim mons could have used one this year to aid in teaching how to cook, sew, furnish a hone, and keep oneself well groomed. ’.7e have purchased around 250 new library books for the high school students this year and for next year we want to get more if possible. Also for next yaar Vife're going to try to get the elementary school accredited and vie sincerely hope we can accom plish this. The new rexograph machine comes in handy when we want dup licating work done* Ms are vrork- ing to get a nevi? electric type writer (especially for the school paper staff). We have a new pro jector for classroom and enter tainment purposes purchased by the P.T.A. The V/oodman of the World gave us an indoor American flag and the American Legion gave us an outdoor flog and a flagpole. Through Pif. :;.loyd's gen erosity we no’w have an adding machine in the office that is used by teachers and students. The aim of the school next year will be toward beautifying and draining the elementary school grounds. This will be a great help, especially to the basebadl and football players since we do not have a ball dia mond. The grammar grade students also need new playground equip ment which we hope to get in the future. At the beginning of the school term the school owed a substantial sum of money and now the debt has beeii paid. The citizenship of the stu dents has already changed for the better in Chadbourn School, Yle think the things we have men tioned have had a lot of influ ence on them in that respect. With the new things vie have now, the students have more interest in school.If cur hopes and dreams come true, Chadbourn High School should turn out better educated, finer,and more enthusiastic stu dents in the future as a result of the bac kg,round they v;ill have hod. In the coming year we hope to have an activity period so the students may participate in various organizations and won't have tc miss class as they did this year in order to participate i ' {Continued'' oh "pf^ge )
