pupils are graded by a scale in which 10 is perfect, 9 excellent, 8
good, 7 fair and any grade below 7 is considered poor.
who reach a general average for the month of 9 or over, in both lessons
and conduct, have their names placed upon the roll of honor for that
month. Honorable mention is made of all who average 9 or over in
conduct but fall below that high average in lesson.
pupils are endowed with brighter minds than others; some have had better
school advantages than others; some have more time to study at home than
others; and some have better assistance in home study than others.

every one can behave properly and thereby win the honorable mention for
good conduct. We hope that all parents will urge their children to
strive for this honorable distinction.

one making the highest average in each grade heads the list of that
grade, and the next highest is placed second and so on; the lowest being
