Second, this work must be dtne under a teacher who is certi-1 ficated to do work in that field. The student, in any case, high or elemen tary, should get a written statement from his teacher or principal that summer school work will be accepted next fall. Several pupils have made inquiry about the work and we have instruct ed them as follows: Mrs. Kellet is qualified to do the work for any of the punils who are deficient in Math or Latin. Mrs. Jones, in English or Math I. Miss Boyd in French or Eng. I. Where as many as three subjects are to be made up the individual, by no means, should attempt to do the work in the summer but will be re quired to take the work over in class. As was stated to a parent this week it would be obsurd to think a pupil could get off that much work in thirty, one-hour recitations, when said stu dent had failed to make a passing grade v a period of eight months. The father thought likewise. Pupils in the elementary school whose promotion depends on the re moval of one condition, may remove same by taking the work under an elementary teacher who is qualified to teach in that field of work. If the parents will please consult the princi pal of the school in which said child is enrolled he will advise relative to the child's particular needs and what teachers will be accepted to do coach ing work. For example: We would not recommend that a first grade teacher coach the work of the seventh grade student. Neither would a gram mar grade teacher's coaching be ac ceptable for the high school pupil, un less that teacher holds" a -high school certificate and has had training in high school subjects.
