MARLIN SCHOOL NOTES.

 

(BY THE SCHOOL.)

 

     Thursday, June 2, has been set apart as the day on which the regular school work of the pupils of the public schools will be on exhibition. The exhibit will consist of papers saved either from the regular written tests or examination, or from the daily recitation work of the child. All papers will be graded and have errors marked. In drawing the teacher will display the whole drawing book of the child some page from the drawing book, or a picture on one of the practice sheets. For some of the geography papers, maps or other constructive work may be substituted. A part of the language work may be compositions, while the history display may consist of note books, maps, etc. Teachers and pupils are anxious that parents and friends show their interest by seeing the exhibit. They purpose, if possible, to bring home and school into closer relation, with the hope of securing a higher standard of education and a more determined effort to reach it.
