School To Open on September 4
Many Improvements Made To School Buildings This Summer
M. D. Pace, city superintendent of schools, returned to Bonners Ferry yesterday after having spent the summer taking work in educational administration in Teachers' College, Columbia University, New York City.
Mr. Pace is now taking up work incident to the opening of school here on Tuesday, September 4. During the summer vacation many improvements have been effected and all of the buildings thoroughly cleaned. The brick grade school building has been kalsomined and painted. Among the improvements are new wardrobe hangers, an iron railing to protect the lawn, and the blinds have been refinished. Other things have been done to give the boys and girls of Bonners Ferry a more cheerful, a more healthful and a better school than they have ever had before.
In the high school building, the assembly has been given a coat of paint. Improvements to the grounds are noticeable in a finer lawn and a good growth to the shrubbery.
As the opening of school approaches attention is again called to the large number of high school students from the common school districts who will want places to stay while attending school. Those who can take a boy or a girl for the school year are asked to communicate with Mr. Pace. He can be reached over the phone, either at his home or at the high school.
"Let us make an effort to see that no boy or girl in Boundary county is deprived of the privilege of attending high school because he or she cannot affort to pay the cost of board and room while at school," said Mr. Pace last night. "Each year more high school students are asking for help in finding places where they can earn all or a part of their expenses while attending school. The number this year will no doubt exceed that of last year."
Through resignations and cancelled contracts the list of teachers as published in the Herald in May has undergone a few changes. The teaching staff for the city schools will be as follows:
Maurice D. Pace, superintendent.
Clarence Fitzgerald, high school principal and History.
Ethel Skirls, English, Latin, and Physical Education.
