VERNON GRADED SCHOOL WILL OPEN ONI MONDAY SEPT II To the patrons and pupils oj the Mt Vernon Graded School I wish to say that the building will be in order and that schoolwill open on Monday Sept nth at 830 oclock IVe hope that every pupil that enter school at this time will do so and again ve ask the co operation ofpatrons and frIends to secure a greater attendance I am convinced that more than half the pupils who failed to pass their respective grades last year failed because of irregular attendance We are going to use every effort to increase the attendance as well as the enrollment this year over that of last year On Sept 12 last year the first day of school we en rolled 170 in all the grades this year the number enrolled on next Monday should be at least 250 It can be so if patrons will see to it that their children are ready for school ou the first day Pupils should not secure new books before coming to school on the first day for they may not know what books they will need Let them bring their old books and let those who received pro motion cards at the close of last school apt fail to bring then Every pupil should have a pencil and tablet when he comes the first day fromIIThose pupils who attended the Mt Vernon Graded School last year but were prevented for any good reason horn taking examina mayIirthis time i enrollingf they are able todo regular work and attend regularly but we would prefer not to have very small children sent to school with their older brother or sister as visitors and in general wje would not encourage the sending of pupils w oare under sax years of age However we rtbuld be glad if fathers or mothers would visit us with the little tolls at any time bayelpatrons and friends present on next Monday morning to ste our new building and to attend and assist in the opening of this session and agaiu thanking you for your earnest effort in the past we ask and trust that you will put forth even more effort for the greater success of this school year and for the education of everypupil in the community and may Mt Ver non zs the county seat set an ex ample cf public education en thusiasm for the whole county and this school year that ofall the boys and girls of school age in this good county of Rockcastle more than half were not in attendance at the public schools at all Such a a condition should not exist in Rockcastle and by
