Of our teachers. Miss Robbins, Miss Tucker and Miss Buzzell
were beginners ; but I think they tried to help the scholars, and
did do well. Miss Allison and Miss Langmaid were older teachers,
and more is to be expected of experience. Our schools would be
greatly improved if, instead of looking for perfection in teachers,
we should all, parents and scholars, do the very best we can to
help. Let us do this, and so make our schools what we would like
to have them.

Respectfully submitted.

WILLIS BOWLES, Chairman of School Board.
