Teacher gets paid. 



May 31. Visiting Day. Teacher gets 

paid. 

June 10. Term ends. 

During the year a school was main- 
tained for 36 weeks in each school 
district except the Second and the 
Eleventh. From the Second, the pu- 
pils were transported to the Fifth. 
Pupils from the Eleventh attended in 
the Tenth. The number of days the 
schools were actually in session was 
from 175 to 178, teaciiers being al- 
lowed certain holidays and visiting 
days and not being required to make 
up the time so lost. 

The schools were taught by teach- 
ers examined and approved. At least 
five of these teachers taught in our 
schools last year. In two schools we 
had to make changes. Miss Sarah 
Johnson at the beginning of the win- 
ter term took the place of Miss 
Florence Miller in district ten. Miss 
Alice Slater on the third week of the 
fall term took the place of Mr. John 
Kelley in district four. Four teach- 
ers, without previous experience, 
taught in our town this year. Three 
of our teachers were normal gradu- 
ates. 

In addition to the public schools 
of the town, there was also an in- 
dependent school maintained in 
Hope Valley by the Seventh Day 
Second Adventists. We regret that 
such a school exists for our schools, 
already too small, are made smaller 
by its existence. 

In the following table there is ma- 
terial for thought, Kindly notice that 
district eight, taught by Miss Dai- 
sy White, had the highest per cent., 
attendance for the year; that dis- 
trict four, taught byMissAlice Sla-

ter ,had the smallest number of tar- 
dy marks per pupil registered; and 
that, the number receiving Perfect 
Attendance increased from teim to 
term. It will be observed that He- 
bron makes the poorest showing or 
my four towns. Much or this was 
due to scarlet fever but we cannot 
hay the tardy marks were due to 
that cause. 

The smo'ol registers show th.;t the 
following pupils weie neither absent 
nor tardy for the entire year: 

O ive C. Smith, from district, one; 
Harriet E. Olin, .Jennie M. Olin, Nel- 
lie L. Olin, from distiict nine. 

The attendance improved during 
the latter part of the year. The 
parents, as well as the children, are 
taking a greater interest in keep- 
ing up the attendance, not only for 
their own district but for the en- 
tire town. One rainy morning I saw 
Mr. Robert Schatz carrying his chil- 
dren to school. He was showing the 
proper spirit. Good attendance means 
more money for school purposes and 
this should mean more evident 
schools. 

COST OF SCHOOLS. 
Amt. paid out for schools, $.J086.42- 
Total amount received from 
the State, 1543.56 

Actual cost to the town, 1512.SG 
Cost per pupil (on average 

attendance basis), 12 22 

Very little has been done in beau- 
tifying the school grounds. The pu- 
pils of district ten have done the 
most. 

Schoolroom Sanitation and Decora- 
tion. Both have received our atten- 
tion to some extent. The latter, 
however, has been emphasized most, 
With encouraging results. As this is 
the home of our pupils for six hours 
each day and as they develop ac- 
cording to their surroundings, I feci 
that tills feature should be consid- 
ered more seriously and emphasized 
more than ever. 
INSTRUCTION AND TRAIN- 
ING OP TEACHERS. 

Through Teachers' Meetings and 
through the bi-weekly visits to the 



schoolroom, an opportunity has been 
presented to you teachers such as 
they have never had before. It is 
an opportunity for improvement, fcr 
suggestion, and for progress. Here 
the superintendent may teach them 
how to teach, may guide the.n in 
intelligent discussion of ways and 
means of doing certain work, may 
guide them in professional reacting, 
may point out their faults and their 
strong points, may acquaint them 
with nis plans of organization, and 
inspire them and their pupils to do 
their best. Any teacher who resents 
this, resents work and progress. Any 
superintendent who cannot do this, 
is not a superintendent — he is a vis- 
itor. 

AGRICULTURE. 
This subject has been taught at 
least once a week throughout the 
year mainly as supplementary read- 
ing. Teachers and pupils realize that 
it is a living subject in which al) 
may participate. It fas awakened 
a keener interest in the child's en- 
vironment, has made language and 
reading more interesting and profit- 
able, has developed a new and wor- 
thy attitude toward farm life, and 
has made it possible for the. pupils 
to make use of his physical ac- 
tivities in securing his own mental 
development. 

MUSIC AND DRAWING. 

Our town gives systematic train- 
ing in music in two schools only. 
Drawing is not systematically tau- 
ght. Tiie:e subjects are of vital im- 
portance in the deve'opment of our 
children for future efficiency. As 
soon as possible we must male it 
possible for our childien to re- 
ceive training in both. 
REPAIRS. 

Each district had made repairs 
when I took up my work. The re- 
pairs in districts one, four and nir.e 
were particularly noticeable. Other 
suggestions in regard to repairs 
were made. In all districts but dis- 
trict three they were attended to in 
a reasonable time. Some of the many 
things to be done, I have already in- 



cheated Id a special report to the 
d. By doing something each 
vear we may hope to have, a'l of 
our sehoolhouses changed into cheer- 
ful, healthful, and elevating build- 
in::";-. 

Ma«.s. with poles and fixture? 
have been provided in every dis- 
tr.ct. The obscene marks havs ben 
removed from every building except 
district six, 

TOWN MANAGEMENT. 
Beginning July 15, L909. our echo Is 
■ y H 1,0 under town management. At 
the October town meeting a new 

Town School Committee will be el- 
ected. 1 beg to suggest that this 
new committee have three mem- 
bers only and that you make thesd 
i lure men the best and most pro- 
gressive men you have in Hebron. 
mall committee is more rapid, 
more efficient, and more careful in 
ibj work. 

I also suggest that the Secretary 
be provided with an order book. 
Bv using it ,you have receipts for 
all your -expenditures. 

SOME IMPROVEMENTS. 
Supplementary Reading. As t! ore 
was none in town I have brought 
U to the schools and loaned the 
books to the pupils at the rate of 
i i < cents «i _eopy for the first two 
an Dths and live cen:s for every 
month in addition. Districts cne. 

four, five .nine anc! ten have" 
taken advantage of ibis privilege. 

Kunp'ies. As the superintend nt 
makes bib visits every two weeks 
••M (I delivers uniform supplies, it 
mai es it possible for every te u b- 
"'• in lov n to order her i upplies and 
baie them delivered at her s< 

door within thai time. Tie eu- 
oerintendei I delivers arithmetic i a- 
ner, Ian -a:, je paper, writing | ap r, 
: i ncils, pers, i ointers. crayon, etc 
at prs i ost.

charts, physiology charts, and pic- 
tures for study. f or illustration, and 
lor schoolroom decoration. All were 
free and from the state. 

Eighth Grade Diplomas are to be 
granted to all pupils who satisfac- 
torily complete our course of study. 
Here is something for which every 
pupil may work/ 

Neat and uniform papers have 
been required, pupils have been 
made to study what and wjjero they 
should, a record of the progress of 
each class has been kept, and, above 
all. discipline through the pupils' 
self-contrcl has been emphasized. 

r Ihe town appropriated five dollars 
for each of the following d's'ric'.s: 
One. three, five. six. nine and ten. 
This $30.00 with an eiual amount 
given by the state was expand- 
ed on maps, globes, reference book* 
ib-ary books for those districts. 
if the town would make such in 
appropriation each year, our equip- 
ment would soon be satisfactory. 

We should congratulate ourselves 
upon being able to adequately pro- 
vide first year high school work. For 
the first time in the history of He- 
b:on. a class has been graduated 
from our Preparatory School and 
:t seated with certificates which will 
admit them to the second year in 
high school work. 

Names of Pupils Receiving Certifi- 
cates: Genevieve Jagper Little, 
Henry Albert Brown .Sidney North- 
ern Hewitt, Daniel Gott Norton, 
Charles Joseph Sheketoff. 
To the 13oard of School Visitors, 
larents. the pupils, and the 
teachers who have cooperated with 
me in superintending our schools, 
who have supported me in my en- 
deavor to raise the standard of our 
schools, and who have encouraged 
me to their appreciation of my e"- 
i wish to express my gratitude. 
Without year support I can do very 
little. Even a superintendent needs 
encouragement and support. 

Respectfully submitted ,

Superintendent of S.-hcols.

COURSE OP STUDY, 

Our great aim in elementary edu- 
cation is to oDen up the mind of tl id 
child and let the whole world in. In 
the Hebron schools, we cannot hope 
to attempt this until we get our 
schools into line in the bare funda- 
mentals. To get our children into 
line in these fundamentals, we need 
a definite plan. We shall call this 
nlan a course of study. It will mark 
<mDly the different steps of r<rc- 
aress. It will let the Barents know 
how far the.-r children have progress- 
ed. Ir. will let the children know 
ivhat they must accomplish foerore 
they can graduate. It is to the su- 
oerintendent and the teachers, wnat 
a written y.ian is to a buildei. ex- 
i'f j nt that our plan is more flexinlp — 
it leaves a chance for life, thought. 
and individuality. 

To make the course of study brief. 
I have been compelled to leave out 
the aims for each subject and to 
avoid manv suggestions. 

The teachers are urged to use the 
State Course of Study in connection 
with our course, 

As all promotions will depend on 
passing my examinations and as mv 
examinations will be based on the 
tallowing course of study, it is nec- 
essary that each teacher should fel- 
low this course of study carefully 
arcl teach the principles indicated.

Health Officer's Report. 



To the Inhabitants of the Town of Hebron. 



As Town Health O.Ticer I would 
respectfully report for the year end- 
ins; Aug. 31, 190C, as follows, viz: 

During the year there occur lei in 
October and Novembei, five cis.es of 
Diphtheria with two deaths, one (f 
the fatal cases terminating in Mem- 
branous Croup, in the family of Sam- 
uel Bruckmann in Turret ville. 7heie 
were also three mild cases in Febru- 
ary in the family of S. Silberman in 
the Sixth School District. The source 
of the contagion in both outbreaks 
could not be ascertained ,but pes i- 
bly it might have been in Colches- 
ter, as the disease was prevailing 
there at about that time. In Decem- 
ber and in January there were some 
eight cases of Scarlet Fever in the 
First School District in four familie?, 
all of a fairly mild grade with no. 
deaths. In three of the famili.s the 
outbreak was at sd near the same 
time as to suggest their originating 
from the same unknown source. 
There was aiso one solitary mild 
case in March in the family of F. 
H. Coates of uncertain origin. In 
both the Diphtheiia and Scar et Fe- 
ver «/ases the families were quar- 
antined and the premises alsD sub- 
sequently disinfected. 

There was a fairly mild esse of 
measles in Hebron village contract- 
ed probably m Middl fnwi or en 
the cars between Middletown and 
Turnerville, and five mild ca e; in 
July, three of the primary cases con- 
tracted In ( oluhester. There was no 
spread of the disease to other fam- 
ilies than those in which the pri- 
mary cases occurred. 

hi .'nne there was one mild case 
of probable Typhoid Fever in He- 
bron Village of uncertain origin, bit 
possibly contracted in Willimantlc. 
The drinking water upon the premi- 
ses was analyzed and nothing found 



indicating that to have been tic- 
source of the contagion. 

There weie no other cases o'. con- 
tagious diseases reported. No nui- 
sances were reported or found, ex- 
cept cases of lice among the tchcol 
children in the Third School Dis- 
trict, one in December and one in 
February. In the cases of lice I took 
such steps as I considered neces- 
sary. 

Towards the last of November, at 
the request of the teacher, I fumi- 
gated the schoolhouse in Turnerville, 
the district in which the October and 
November cases cf Diphtheria oc- 
curred, but more to re'ieve appre- 
hension than because 1 looked upon 
it. as really necessary. In May. at 
the request of the committeeman in 
the Third School District, I cbiair.ed 
analysis of the water from an old 
well recently opened and cleaned o. t 
lor supplying the school with drink- 
ing water. The issue of ihe analysis 
was fairly favorable. 

The school buildings of the town 
weie hardiy ready loy in? pec inn till 
after August 31. and weie net in- 
spected till during the week in low- 
ing, and were then lound in good 
sanitary condition, or in process cf 
being put in such condition. One 
word in conclusion with regard to 
contagious diseases, while it beloi gs 
to the physician in attendance to 
report all such cases to the health 
officer, it is equally the duty of 
heads of families when no physican 
has been called, as not (infrequent- 
ly happens especially with caries of 
Measles, to so report; a fact which 
perhaps not every one is aware of.
