Elmont School Closed
The Elmont school closed last Friday and in the forenoon the pupils
and patrons gathered at the school house and had a very delightful time.
Dinner was spread on the ground, a large crowd was present, and all enjoyed
themselves immensely. In the afternoon the children went over to "Lover's
Leap" and spent the evening kodaking. The school was taught by Prof. Ledgerwood
and Mrs. Walker, and they were asked to accept another year, but Mr. Ledgerwood
informed us that very likely he would teach elsewhere next year. This was
the third year he taught the Elmont school, and he has given splendid service
and almost universal satisfaction. The school had an enrollment of 85 pupils
the past session.
