ANNUAL REPORT 



OF THE 



j8cl|ool CoiT\ir\ittee 



OF THE 



TOWN OF GREENWICH, 



For the Year Ending March 1, 1881. 



SPRINGFIELD, MASS. : 
Weaver, Ship man and Company, Printers. 

1881. 



School Committee's Report. 



As a Committee, in presenting the accompanying 
reports, illustrating the condition of our schools during 
the year now closed, we would congratulate the town 
on their general prosperity. You are well aware of 
having placed us in a very responsible and somewhat 
difficult position — in the fulfillment of which we have 
endeavored to do our best for the good of our youth 
and the promotion of education throughout our town. 
It is a well known fact that the success of a school 
greatly depends upon the co-operation of parents. 
The best teacher is powerless, and the school a com- 
parative failure, without the confidence and sympathy 
of both parents and scholars. Allow us to suggest 
that, if parents would frequently visit the schools, and 
familiarize themselves with the teacher's work, they 
would not only give encouragement and aid, but be 
better prepared to judge of the progress and success 
of the schools. An examination of some of the Reg- 
isters for the past year shows a sad neglect in this 
particular. 

In those schools where more interest has been man- 
ifested by parents and friends, they have reaped the 
legitimate result in the improvement of their children. 
It is hoped that this error maybe clearly seen, and cor- 
rected in future, that the children may reap the full 



12 

benefit of the money and effort expended. We have 
introduced Monroe's Practical Speller, with Greenleaf s 
New Elementary Arithmetic, and trust the change will 
be productive of good. We have thought it judicious, 
with the scarcity of scholars in some schools, to concen- 
trate in a measure. We have, therefore, maintained 
six schools during the Spring, five during the Fall, and 
seven during the Winter term, of ten weeks each. 

School No. i '. 

This school was instructed the entire year by Miss 
Nellie H. Earle. Miss Earle had the qualifications 
ever needed in the school-room — diligence and perse- 
verance. Her aim was to maintain the important point 
of a well regulated and orderly school, of which her 
school gave good evidence. Seldom has your Commit- 
tee visited a better school. 

1st Term. 2d and 3d Term. 
Whole number of scholars, . . 29 28 

Average attendance, . . . 27. 4 20.4 

Expense of school for the year, $205. For each scholar, $7.07. 

School No. 2. 

Miss Anna L. Rice was approbated to teach the 
Spring term. She had excellent qualifications, with 
some experience in teaching. She deserved more of 
the co-operation of the parents than she received, as 
the Register showed a total indifference on their part, 
bearing no names save the Committee. 

The Fall and Winter term was under the charge of 
Miss Sadie X. Ward, a teacher of experience and suc- 
cess. We believe her services were satisfactory. 

1st Term. 2d and 3d Term. 
Whole number of scholars, . . 22 30 

Average attendance, . . . 18.5 23.2*5 

Expense of school for the year, $203. For each scholar, $0.7(1. 



13 



School No. j. 

Miss Amelia M. Root was employed as teacher for 
the Spring, and Mr. H. H. Childs for the Winter 
term — both teachers of experience. The school being 
small, it was deemed expedient to suspend it until 
winter, and accommodate the pupils in No. 4. 

1st Term. 2d Term. 
Whole number of scholars, 6 7 

Average attendance, . . . . 5.9 6.7 

Expense of school for the year, $96. For each scholar, $13.71. 

School No. 4. 

This school was taught by Miss Belle M. Ward, a 
young and inexperienced teacher. She entered upon 
the duties of her new vocation, we believe, with zeal 
and earnestness, and continued through the year, giv- 
ing good satisfaction. 

1st Term. 2d and 3d Term. 
Whole number of scholars, 18 20 

Average attendance, . . . 15.") 13 

Expense of school for the year, $166. For each scholar, $8.30. 

School No. 5. 

Miss Anna E. Dickerson entered upon her duties as 
teacher of this school with some experience. The 
Committee were pleased with her manner of instruc- 
tion, and the pupils made commendable progress. She 
did not choose to accept the situation for the remainder 
of the year. Therefore, Miss Lucy A. Parker was 
employed for the Fall and Winter term — a well quali- 
fied, experienced aricl successful teacher. 

1st Term. 2d and 3d Term. 
Whole number of scholars, 15 16 

Average attendance, . . . 10.74 9.75. 

Expense of school for the year, $165. For each scholar, $10.31. 



14 



School No. 6. 

It was thought best to accommodate the small num- 
ber of pupils in No. i, and have no school until the 
Winter term, which was taught by Mr. R. L. Jennings. 
This was Mr. Jennings' first school, but he was suc- 
cessful, and appreciated by scholars and parents. 

Whole number of scholars, 13. Average attendance, 11.36. 
Expense of school for the year, $55. For each scholar, $4.2:5. 

School No. 7. 

This school has been suspended five years, and the 
few children sent to School No. 1. It seemed neces- 
sary, and was thought best, to reopen the school the 
past year, involving some repairs, which were made at 
a cost of about $70. The labor was gratuitously per- 
formed by a few in the district. The teacher for the 
year was a member of your Committee. 

1st Term. 2d and 3d Term. 
Whole number of scholars, . . !* 14 

Average attendance, . . . 8.5 10.5 

Expense of school for the year, $154. For each scholar, $11.

School Committee's Report. 



In compliance with both law and custom, the School 
Committee present the following report concerning the 
public schools, for the year 1881-82 : 

School No. 1. 

Miss Nellie H. Earle has taught this school for five 
successive terms. Earnestly devoted to her vocation, 
she has been prompt and efficient in promoting the 
highest welfare of her pupils. The good effect of her 
thorough drill has been plainly visible to those familiar 
with the schools. The vast superiority of her instruc- 
tion in Grammar over the old methods has been clearly 
demonstrated by a class that commenced this study 
under her instruction. A better class of their age have 
never been seen in our schools. She introduced 
singing into the school, which was one of its pleasantest 
features. 

Your Committee were very sorry not to be able to 
retain her for the rest of the year, but considered them- 
selves very fortunate in securing the services of Mr. H. 
E. Brown, who had taught this school seven terms 
before — always with complete success. 

Comments of your Committee seem almost super- 
fluous. We should not do our duty if we passed over 
his school without a word. He is ingenious and 
practical in his methods of instruction, active and ener- 
getic in imparting his personal enthusiasm to his pupils. 
The scope of his instruction is very broad — not con- 



12 

fined to the narrow range of text-books. The lessons 
were well interspersed with illustrations and sugges- 
tions well calculated to develop and strengthen the 
mind. Better fruits were never witnessed than were 
displayed at the examination. 

Particularly happy is this school in having among its 
patrons and friends a gentleman through whose gener- 
osity the school has had two prizes to compete for the 
past term : One a beautiful Gold Medal for pupils over 
twelve years of age, and a Silver Medal for pupils 
under twelve. It was found, at the close of the term, 
these stood equally entitled to the Gold Medal : Elmer 
Hunter, Frank H. Douglass, Gertie Cooley, Ida Clifford, 
Eddie Hunter, and Eldora Johnson ; for the Silver 
Medal, Mary Ruddock, David Hunter and Gracie B. 
Smith. They were awarded respectively by lot to 
Gertie Cooley and Mary Ruddock. Each of the other 
contestants received a beautiful book, as a souvenir, in 
place of the medal. 

School No. 2. 

Miss Sadie N. Ward has had this school under her 
instruction for five successive terms — an accomplished 
scholar and thorough teacher. Her system of govern- 
ment was mild, but no less potent and complete from 
its mildness. Evidence of systematic drill has always 
been found under her administration. Classes in Read- 
ing are worthy of special approval for clear enunciation 
and an easy and animated style of expression. She 
has labored very hard for the best welfare of her 
pupils, and those that made any mental effort showed 
good improvement. 

School No. J. 

The number of pupils were so few (all coming from 
one family), your Committee thought best for them to 
attend, during the Spring Term, School No. 4, the dis- 



13 

tance not being as far as many of our pupils go in 
other parts of the town. The Fall found a few more 
pupils to attend school, although quite uncertain if the 
larger part remained in town during the term. Your 
Committee thought best to combine this school with 
No. 2, and a contract was made with Mr. Samuel B. 
Estey for the transportation of the pupils, and the 
contract was faithfully executed. We are sorry to say 
but few availed themselves of the opportunity thus 
extended to them. We believe the children might have 
been greatly benefited by being connected with a school 
of larger membership. It is a well-established fact that 
a teacher can teach a school of twenty-five pupils with 
little more effort, and far better results, than one con- 
taining only eight or ten. It is a waste of time and 
mental effort on the part of a teacher, and money on 
the part of the town, to maintain schools of such small 
membership. 

The Winter Term was taught by Mr. Henry Hol- 
brook, of Ware, a young and inexperienced teacher — 
this being his first attempt. He entered upon his duties 
with zeal and earnestness, and his success was marked. 
He has good qualifications and, with practice, will make 
a very successful teacher. 

School No. 4. 

Miss Anna E. Dickinson taught this school during 
the year, with good success. Your Committee were 
well pleased with her manner of instruction. She has 
many excellent qualifications for a teacher. The pupils 
made good progress. This school, like some others in 
town, is very small, and we think might be combined 
with No. 5, with much, profit to both schools. 

'chool No. 5. 

This school has been fortunate and happy in retain- 
ing the services of Miss Lucy A. Parker for five 



14 

successive terms, and has steadily prospered. There 
was evidently an effort made on the part of the teacher 
to use the best methods of instructing the pupils. This 
school, like others in town, has many interruptions by 
the pupils not attending more regularly. The best 
efforts of a teacher are powerless, where such interrup- 
tions occur. Those attending through the year have 
made good proficiency. The school-house is wholly 
unfit for school purposes, and your Committee would 
most earnestly recommend the building of a new 
school-house somewhere on the road running north and 
south between Messrs. Drinkwater's and John Powers's. 
By so doing, Schools Nos. 4 and 5 may be combined 
with much profit to both schools, and a great saving to 
the town. It is most earnestly hoped the town will 
take measures at its annual town meeting to consum- 
mate this end. 

School No. 6 

Has beetrwell accommodated at No. 1 during the 
year. 

School No. 7. 

Miss C. C. Douglass has had the supervision of this 
school for the past two years, during which there has 
been no abatement of zeal on the part of the teacher, 
or apparent diminution of progress among the pupils. 
She has had the same cordial sympathy and support 
from the parents, which has enabled her to teach with 
confidence of a just appreciation. 

The work of the schools, as detailed in the preceding 
review, has been attended with prosperity, and we 
trust the results have been of such a character as to 
satisfy all reasonable expectations on the part of those 
interested in the welfare and progress of our common 
schools. Many of the schools have exhibited unmis- 
takable evidence of superior excellence both in disci- 



15 

pline and progress, and no one of them for a single 
term can be pronounced a failure. Fully appreciating 
the fact that the wants of the different schools are not 
identical, and that the selection of suitable teachers is 
one of the most delicate, as well as one of the most 
important functions of the Committee, we have sought 
fearlessly and without favoritism to do our duty and 
accomplish the best results. Your Committee deeply 
regret that parents do not manifest more interest, by 
visiting the schools, and make themselves more familiar 
with the teachers' work — by so doing, be better able 
to judge of the progress of the schools. In those 
schools where most interest has been manifested by 
parents and friends, the best results have been reaped. 
We are sorry to find some children attending our 
schools who show a sad neglect on the part of parents 
in training them properly at home. Children who 
never learn obedience to parents, are apt to be difficult 
in school. 

In conclusion, we gratefully express our thanks to 
the teachers for promptness in responding to any sug- 
gestion of ours regarding school details, etc. To their 
zeal and fidelity, whatever of success may have been 
attained, is chiefly due. 

We would not omit to thank the children for their 
courteous greetings, and sincerely hope whoever suc- 
ceeds us will be as kindly received. 

11 The common school, ! let its light 
Shine through our country's story : 
Here lies her wealth, her strength, her might ; 
Here rests her future glory." 

We have maintained five schools during the year 
thirty-two weeks each; and one school, No. 3, twelve 
weeks, at the following cost :

REPORT 



or THE 



SUPERINTENDING SCHOOL COMMITTEE 
OF GREENWICH, FOR 1882-3. 



Fellow Citizens : By a vote of your School 
Committee, the duty of superintending your schools 
fell upon me ; and you are well aware that it is a 
difficult task to perform ; but I have endeavored to do 
my duty without partiality. Your Committee thought 
best, under present circumstances, to maintain a school 
in each of our school-houses during the past terms of 
school, so we have had seven schools, beside our union 
school with Enfield and Hardwick. 

School No. 1 

Was taught by Miss Carrie A. Thurston, a graduate 
of Westfield Normal School. She entered upon her 
duties with zeal and energy, and was one of our ablest 
teachers to give thorough instruction that we had in 
any of our schools ; but there arose a prejudice against 
her mode of teaching and governing that caused some 
of the scholars to leave school, for which there was 
no just cause. 

1st Term. 2d Term. 
Length of school, . . 10 Weeks 16 Weeks. 

Whole number of scholars, . 17 12 

Average attendance, . . 16.61 9.98 



12 

School No. 2 

Was under the instruction of Miss Lucy A. Parker, 
an experienced teacher. This was the hardest school 
in town to govern during the last term ; but she main- 
tained her right, and went through with good credit for 
herself. 

1st Term. 2d Term. 

Length of school, . . 10 Weeks. 16 Weeks. 

Whole number of scholars, 22 22 

Average attendance, . . 17.78 16.4 

School No. J. 

Miss Jennie L. Vaughn was engaged to teach this 
school both terms. There was nothing lacking in this 
school, except more scholars. 

1st Term. 2d Term. 
Length of school, . 10 Weeks. 15 Weeks. 

Whole number of scholars, 9 6 

Average attendance, . 4.7 3.7 

School No. 4. 

Miss Lizzie M. Powers taught both terms with good 
success — the school showing a good improvement in 
all the branches that were taught. 

1st Term. 2d Term. 

Length of school, . 10 Weeks. 16 Weeks. 

Whole number of scholars, 12 13 

Average attendance, . 10.9 10.2 

School No. 5 

Was under the instruction of Miss Lilian H. Kelley, 
and was well taught both terms. 

1st Term. 2d Term. 

Length of school, . 10 Weeks. 16 Weeks. 

Whole number of scholars, 9 12 

Average attendance, . 8.5 10.8 



13 



School No. 6. 

The first term was in charge of Miss Anna E. 
Dickinson, and was taught with good success. The 
second was taught by Wm. D. RicH. He also had good 
success, and the scholars showed a thorough under- 
standing of their studies. 

1st Term. 2d Term. 

Length of school, . 10 Weeks. 16 Weeks. 

Whole number of scholars, 8 11 

Average attendance, 7.2 10.8 

School No. 7. 

This school was taught by Miss C. C. Douglass, a 
teacher of much experience, and a thorough knowledge 
of training the youthful minds.

Length of school, . 10 Weeks. 16 Weeks. 

Whole number of scholars, 8 18

I will here make a few general remarks. First, we 
do not seem to realize that this is an age of improve- 
ment, and that we should not be harsh in disapproving 
any changes. We are apt to want to follow in the 
same old ruts of our predecessors, rather than make 
new tracks for ourselves ; but this is very bad policy. 
We should be very slow to criticise any change in the 
methods of teaching and governing schools until we 
have made a thorough investigation, and find that it 
is not any improvement. We find, by reflecting a 
moment, that there never has been any new enterprise 
or invention, but that there has been plenty of people 
to cry out against it and pronounce it a failure. Look 
for instance at the voyage* of Columbus, the use of 
steam as a power, the telegraph and telephone as 
message carriers. These have all been pronounced 
failures. I find those that investigate least the 
first to cry out failure. It is a general fact that each 



16 

mechanic is supposed to know his own trade best. 
When we hire a mechanic we abide his judgment and 
let him do his work in his own manner, because we 
know he is the best judge how to do it. Now let us 
be very positive that we understand the methods of 
teaching and governing schools better than those who 
have fitted themselves for this occupation, before we 
pronounce them not competent for the task they have 
undertaken. It is our duty to aid and assist the 
teacher, and see that the children in our care attend 
school every day, unless sickness or some cause that 
cannot be avoided prevents ; and see that they are not 
tardy, and are obeying the rules of the school, and 
that their general deportment is good. When we have 
done all this, and performed our duty, our schools will 
be much nearer perfection than they are now. 

Respectfully submitted, 

C. N. POWERS, 

Superintending School Committee.

School Committee's Report. 



In compliance with the law, the School Committee submit 
the following report for the school year 1883-84. 

School No. 1. 

Owing to the lateness of the season when the school board 
organized, your Superintending Committee was very much 
troubled to procure a suitable teacher to take charge of this 
school, and did not until a few days before time for it to com- 
mence secure the services of Miss Mabel C. Bartlett, a Normal 
graduate, who brought to her work good literary acquirements 
which, united with tact and peculiar ability, enabled her to 
take up the work of instructing this school by the same method 
so successfully commenced by her predecessor, Miss Thurston, 
and carry out the same through the year. In this school there is a 
class of good scholars — scholars who attend school to learn, and 
who, as a matter of course, have made considerable acquisition. 
All the scholars deserve this commendation. The committee 
believe this school one of the most easily governed in town. 
The thorough manner in which Miss Bartlett was qualified for 
her work was very evident from the rapid improvement her 
pupils made under her instruction. The clearness with which 
her instructions were demonstrated showed conclusively that 
her pupils had been taught to work thoroughly and independ- 
ently. Those who visited the school and observed its daily 
drill could not fail to appreciate the excellent character of the 
work performed. The healthy public sentiment found in this 
neighborhood in favor of good schools proves an excellent 
stimulant to incite teacher and scholars to earnest effort. It is 



10 



most earnestly hoped Miss Bartlett may be retained in this 
school.

School No. 2 

Was taught the summer term by Miss Allie M. Johnson, a 
teacher of some experience, who proved herself equal to the 
task, and taught with good success. Miss Johnson did not 
wish to continue in the school through the year. Your Com- 
mittee deemed themselves very fortunate in securing the ser- 
vices of Miss Theresa C. Bartlett, an accomplished scholar and 
thorough teacher. Earnestly devoted to her vocation, she was 
prompt and efficient in endeavoring to promote the highest 
welfare of her pupils. The good effects of her thorough drill 
in the different studies pursued have been plainly visible to 
those familiar with the school. The vast superiority of her 
instructions over the ordinary of a close adherence to text-books 
has been thoroughly demonstrated by classes studying gram- 
mar, history, geography and the different grades of mathematics. 
If any scholar failed to derive permanent good from such in- 
struction it was wholly due to inattention and lack of personal 
effort. Miss Bartlett spared no pains to teach well. Possess- 
in o* o-ood judgment and skill, her labors were valuable and 
appreciated as such by those interested in the school. The 
examinations indicated a degree of progress never attained 
except by patient and persevering effort on the part of the 
teacher. This may be ranked, under her management, as 
amono- our best schools. Miss Bartlett was the second Normal 
teacher the town has been blessed with the past year.

School No. 3 

Has been Under the instruction of Miss Jennie L. Vaughn 
the entire year. Miss Vaughn commenced her school under 
rather trying circumstances, having only two scholars for the 
first four weeks. After this her number increased to eight, 
which made it much more interesting for both teacher and 
pupil. Her connection with this school for several terms has 
endeared her to her pupils and a degree of harmony prevails 
among parents, pupils and teacher which cannot fail to make a 
school pleasant and profitable. This school made commendable 
improvement.

School No. 4. 

Miss Helen L. Haskell taught this school the summer term. 
Miss Haskell was inexperienced, but had good scholarly attain- 
ments and was willing to devote all her energies to teaching a 
good school. At your Committee's first and second visits 
everything seemed to be progressing very well. At the close 
of the term we found an element of disrespect for which no 
words of condemnation can be too severe. From all we could 
gather we are of the opinion that, if the parents had co-operated 
with the teacher, she would have achieved that success which 
her industry and ability merited. The winter term was taught 
by Miss Lizzie M. Powers, a former teacher in this school, 
who gave good satisfaction.

School No. 5 





Has been taught the entire year by Miss Lucy A. Parker, 
who has taught this school many terms in past years and always 
with success. This has been our smallest school the past year. 
The whole number of pupils enrolled each term was five. The 



12 

average attendance for the summer term was 3H j f° r the win- 
ter term, 3 Hi. This school being so small, no great amount 
of inspiration was to be derived from the teacher's daily duties. 
She employed her time and energies, however, and devoted 
herself thoroughly to the children and accomplished all we 
could expect in a sphere so circumscribed. Miss Parker, 
although not a Normal graduate, has made a study of Normal 
methods of teaching and evidently appreciates the fact that " this 
is an age of progress." 

School No. 6 

TTas taught the whole year by Miss Lillian M. Thayer, a 
teacher of some experience, who came well recommended. 
She fully sustained her former reputation. She was faithful 
and progressive in her methods of instruction. Good discipline 
was maintained and it has closed a year of marked improvement.

I am asked by parents of this school why they cannot have a 
Normal teacher. I wish it were in my power to employ one in 
every school in town, and I am confident that the standard of 
our schools would be very much elevated by so doing. If these 
parents were willing to unite Nos. 7 and 7 1-2 for the best good 
of their children, and the money it takes to support each were 
united, it might secure as good a teacher as we have in town. 



13 

School No. 7 1-2, 
Or the Union school, has been taught the past year by Miss 
Mary P. Foster. The average membership for the year was 
eight, and the average attendance 7+. Greenwich furnished 
five of these pupils. This school has been especially favored 
by the services of Miss Foster, a young lady of culture and 
ability. Thoroughness and good order were among the fruits 
of her work, and her earnest efforts in behalf of her pupils were 
well appreciated by parents and by Committee. 

The work of the schools as detailed in the preceding review 
has been attended with success, and we trust the results have 
been of such a character as to satisfy those interested in the 
welfare and progress of our schools. In a few of our schools 
we regret to report great irregularity of attendance on the part 
of some scholars. In No. 4 school there are some scholars 
who live in sight of the school-house and who have not attended 
one-half of the last term. There is no greater discouragement 
to a teacher. Irregularity of attendance retards the progress 
of a whole class. The effect upon the child is very bad. The 
course of study becomes broken up. That mental discipline 
which can be gained only by constant application is destroyed. 
We are aware that children are often obliged to stay at home 
on account of sickness ; this is unavoidable ; but too often we 
fear they are absent for insufficient reasons. Your Committee 
deeply regret this state of things and are inclined to think par- 
ents are much to blame. The years spent in school are few 
enough at most, and it should be the aim of all to see that their 
children have all possible educational advantages. We wish 
that a greater interest was manifested by the parents and the 
community in general. In urging this matter of school visita- 
tion, we are often confronted with this reply from the person 
addressed : "Your methods of teaching are so different from 
those used when I attended school that I do not feel qualified 
to judge of the value of the work you are doing." To all such 
we would say that it does not require a technical knowledge of 
all branches taught to obtain a correct impression of the condi- 



14 

tion of a school, but simply an exercise of that common sense 
we are accustomed to apply in judging of the common transac- 
tions of the world at large. No such trivial excuse as the 
above should make any parent a stranger in the school-room. 
Your presence will confer a benefit and promote the efficiency 
of our schools. We notice upon some of the registers quite an 
increase in the number of names of parents ; for this we are 
thankful and take courage. Again, much of the criticism of 
school management comes from those who never enter the 
school-room, and can hardly be esteemed just, being founded 
too often only on flying reports, such as on other subjects 
would gain no credence whatever. If those who criticise the 
methods of teaching and government would first visit the schools 
and ascertain for themselves, a large part of the censure so often 
received would never be heard. 

Teachers' Qualifications. — Without any detraction from 
or reflection on our teachers the past year, we would say many 
commence the work of teaching without special preparation for 
it. In the past it has not been considered necessary for one 
possessed of natural ability for the work of teaching to make 
preparation other than that received while learning the branches 
to be taught. This idea is fast losing ground. Teaching is 
becoming established as a profession. We have five Normal 
schools belonging to the State and there are also cities that 
have their own training schools. We read not long since that 
95 per cent, of all the Normal graduates became teachers and 
that 90 per cent, were teaching in Massachusetts. One-half of 
the teachers in Suffolk country are Normal graduates. While 
in Boston, in November, I spent a day visiting the public 
schools and considered it a day very pleasantly and profitably 
spent. All the towns in the country are securing the services 
of Normal teachers as fast as possible. In fact, the demand 
for them is so great that last spring your Committee could not 
get one from the Westficld or Worcester Normal schools. 
Teachers, like other people who seek employment, work for 
the money and cannot be reasonably expected to remain with 



15 

us when their talents demand more elsewhere. If we get com- 
petent teachers to do our work, we have no alternative but to 
pay what other towns pay for similar services. 

We have maintained eight schools the past year, of twenty- 
six weeks each. Your Committee regret, as much as any, their 
inability to continue the schools, but for want of funds the 
school term has been cut short, much to the loss of some of 
our oldest scholars, who sadly need the benefit of school. 
There are a number of things the town needs to consider imme- 
diately. First, that of bringing our schools more together. 
We had, as returned by the Assessors, but seventy-four scholars 
of school age last May — not enough to make more than three 
schools, and by a vote of the town, your Committee have been 
obliged to run eight schools. Some of the parents, I am happy 
to say, have arrived at the conclusion that it is a waste of the 
town's money and of the time of teacher and pupils to maintain 

such small schools. There is the item of school-house repairs, 
so necessary for the comfort of the pupils, and certainly it is no 
small item as regards expense. The repairs the past year have 
been only such as were positively necessary. 

During the fall term a teachers' institute was held under the 
direction of the State Board of education, at North Prescott. 
Your Superintendent with five of our teachers accepted an invi- 
tation to attend, and we take occasion here to acknowledge 
with thanks the very kind hospitality we enjoyed there. The 
exercises were listened to with close interest and were consid- 
ered valuable by those interested in the best methods of teaching. 

In conclusion, we gratefully express our thanks to the teach- 
ers for the promptness with which they have responded to any 
suggestion of ours regarding school details or methods of in- 
structions. To their zeal and fidelity whatever of success may 
have been attained is chiefly due. We also acknowledge fre- 
quent assurances from parents and others of their appreciation 
of our labors to elevate the standard of our schools ; these 
expressions have done much toward lightening what otherwise 
might have seemed a thankless task. 

We would not omit to recognize our pleasant associations 
with the children ; for their courteous greetings and the memory 
of their sunny faces will linger among the pleasant recollections 
which the lapse of time cannot easily efface.

OF THE 



SCHOOL COMMITTEE 

For 1884-5, 



In presenting to the inhabitants of the town the annual report, we arc 
happy to congratulate them on the continued progress of the schools, on 
the whole, as a source of gratification to ourselves and of encourage- 
ment to our fellow-citizens. 

REVIEW. 

In former reports we have alluded to important topics connected with 
the interests of the schools, such as the improved and more interesting 
condition of the school buildings and their surroundings. AVe have 
made great improvement in school-room No. 2, for which we think the 
children are very grateful. The relation of parents to the success of the 
schools, shown by sympathy and in more frequent visits to the school- 
rooms, (there are many parents, we are sorry to say. whose names 
never appear on the registers), and in correcting the evils incident to tar- 
diness and absence; the necessity of securing well-qualified teachers 
and retaining their services if possible; the liberality of the town 
which should furnish ample means to enable the committee to suco — 
fully prosecute the school work and maintain the system of common- 
school education, as the only safe-guard of our liberties — these consid- 
erations, besides many other reflections, your committee, to whom you 
have committed this responsible trust, have presented from time to time, 
thus keeping you faithfully informed as to the condition and prosperity 
of the schools under their charge. While the schools have made com- 
mendable improvement under the instruction and guidance of a corps of 
teachers as assiduous, intelligent and efficient as at any previous period, 
it will not be understood, however, that we have reached the highest 
point of excellence in educational work. Much has been done, as we re- 



School Committee. 13 

view the past, and we rejoice in every progressive step; still quite a 
large field remains to be occupied before we attain to the limit of our 
possibilities or desires. The standard of instruction should be more and 
more elevated, and greater thoroughness of acquisition on the part of 
scholars be secured. "A school may be greatly aided, and the duties of 
the teacher greatly simplified, if the homes from which the children 
come be what they are intended to be : while, on the other hand, the ob- 
ject for which a school is established and a teacher employed, may be 
largely defeated by a lack of certain important elements in the home life 
of the pupils." It would not be difficult for one conversant with the 
affairs of some schools to draw certain inferences concerning the families 
with which the scholars are connected. The statute law requires that 
all public teachers "exert their best endeavors to impress on the minds 
of the children and youth committed to their care and instruction, the 
principles of piety and justice, and a sacred regard for truth, love of 
their country, humanity and universal benevolence; sobriety, industry 
and frugality ; chastity, moderation and temperance; and those other 
virtues which are the ornaments of human society and the basis upon 
which a Republican constitution is founded; and it shall be the duty of 
such instructors to endeavor to lead their pupils, as their ages and capac- 
ities will admit, in a clear understanding of the tendency of the above- 
mentioned virtues, to preserve and perfect a republican constitution, and 
secure the blessings of liberty, as well as. to promote their future happi- 
ness, and also to point out to them the evil tendency of the opposite 
vices." Chapter 44, Section 15. In these days when the monster infi- 
delity is stalking through the lands, even offering a premium for his 
victims, parents and guardians should be on the alert and know what in- 
struction their children are receiving. No employes of the town are do- 
ing more to shape its future than the teachers of our public schools, and 
the co-operation of tax-payers and parents should most surely be enlis- 
ted, that we may reap the greatest results. We must not forget that the 
interests of this community will soon pass into the hands of those who 
now are, or should be, in our public schools. Nor can we afford not to 
give to the children and youth of to-day the best possible training, to fit 
them for the positions of trust and influence they are soon to occupy. 
We had, as returned by the assessors on May 1st, 1884, eighty-four 
scholars between five and fifteen years of age, for whom we have main- 
tained six schools with nine different teachers, thirty weeks, and we 
trust the results have been of such a character as to satisf v those inter- 



14 Annual Report or 

ested in the welfare and progress of our schools. In some of our 
schools we regret to report great irregularity of attendance on the part 
of some scholars, which has been a great discouragement to teachers. 
Your committee greatly regret this state of things, and are inclined to 
think parents are wholly responsible for the same. It is to be deeply re- 
gretted that the usefulness of any of our schools should be impaired by 
the misconduct of pupils, and still more that any act of citizens should 
give encouragement to a spirit of lawlessness. It will require the earn- 
est co-operation of parents and citizens with future teachers to bring 
some of our school into a state of wholesome discipline, which the high- 
est good of the pupils themselves and of the community requires. We 
hope the schools will be judged according to the good they have accom- 
plished, not according to the imperfections that remain. 

CONCLUSION. 

In conclusion, we quote from our last year's report: "We gratefully 
express our thanks to the teachers for the promptness with which they 
have responded to any suggestions of ours regarding school details. To 
their zeal and fidelity whatever of success may have been attained is 
chiefly due. We would not omit to recognize our pleasant associations 
with the children; for their courteous greetings and the memory of their 
pleasant faces will linger among the recollections which the lapse of 
time cannot efface."

WM. S. DOUGLAS, Secretary and Treasurer, 



In School No. 6, commonly called the "Hunter District," the school 
has been under the charge of Mr. H. "NV. Smith. The number of schol- 
ars is small, from eight to twelve, and the average age is from eight to 
fourteen years. The teacher, Miss Anna E. Dickinson is highly capa- 
ble, and has been very successful. Great pains has been taken with in- 
struction in reading, with the endeavor to secure clear articulation, pure 
tones^and the intelligent expression of ideas. A school so small and in 
which everything is done in order requires very little comment. It is 
enough to say the scholars are pursuing the studies prescribed with dili- 
gence and success.

OF THE 



TOWN OF GREENWICH 



FOB. TEE TEAR 1885-6. 



Report of Chairman. 



The welfare and progress of our schools depend largely upon How 
to introduce reforms in them, in harmony with the educational sys- 
tem of the State- Without regard to this there will be great waste 
of effort, and many difficulties will arise to counterbalance much 
good that may be for the time effected. The community is coming 
more and more to see the need of trained teachers, and the Normal 
Schools are barely able to supply the growing demand. Teachers 
need to understand the philosophy of teaching, in order to abolish 
the old-fashioned method of text book question and answer. The 
years of attendance at school where this method is adopted give 
most meagre intellectual capital, and almost no thoughtful training 
for a child to begin the practical work of life upon. The best that 
our public schools can do for our children is to teach them how to 
think. In the very constitution of things there must be regular 
steps adapted to this end, and these, well understood and grounded 
in the pupil's mind, give him an invaluable key to all knowledge, 
contrasted with which all the memorizing of years is comparatively 
valueless. To call a pupil's attention to an object is to excite 
thought respecting it, which, expressed by the child, leads to further 
thought ; and a teacher at all qualified for his position will be ready 
with questions that will cause deeper thinking on the part of the 
child — not questions that will impart the teacher's knowledge, but 
those that will so act upon the mind as to elicit or educe that mental 
activity in the child the result of which is knowledge. And perhaps 
nothing should be told a child until its active thought and searching, 
induced by pertinent questions, has given it a glimpse, at least, of 
the knowledge the teacher is trying to disclose. 

Aptness in Questioning is required on the part of a teacher to 



4 

draw forth the pupil's capabilities and put them in possession of 
their faculties, more than any other one talent. No reading lesson 
should be given that is not interspersed with questions to give full 
understanding of the author's meaning ; and this attained, but little 
time need be spent upon inflections and rhetorical pauses. To get 
the image that the author had in mind is the root or secret of the 
elocutionist's art. Oral and written reading exercises should be 
prominent in our public schools, and engage much more attention 
than any other branch, as it especially advances pupils in methods 
of thought, in modes of expression, in grammar, spelling, and writ- 
ins;, and forms the leading tool for advancement in all other branch- 
es. Time and effort here are never lost, but contribute to make a 
Well-Trained Mind, which should be the acme of the teacher's en- 
deavor, rather than the memorizing of others' thoughts, which are 
more likely to cumber the mind than to expand and strengthen it. 
Clear and distinct utterance should be required of all pupils within 
the school-room. No ungrammatical phrase should be allowed to 
pass without comment and correction by the teacher or some one 
appointed to that work. This carefully regarded for but one season, 
and more practical grammar will have been learned than from the 
study of text books for years. It is the exception rather than the 
rule to find graduates from our public schools who can talk and 
write without grammatical blunders. But conversations with the 
pupils regarding the subject they are studying advances them at the 
same time in grammar, if care be observed as recommended, while 
the committing to memory the words of the text book is of little 
avail, be the sentences ever so well formed and the knowledge ever 
so accurate. For unless the reason is active, the mere words will 
soon fade from memory, and the pupil's mind be as barren of 
knowledge as before. Pity it is that our school education is looked 
upon as somethiug to be gone through with in a few years of early 
life, and education in the practical duties of life as something dis- 
tinct, instead of its being the period in which to learn the use of the 
tools necessary to apply in all fields of knowledge, discovery, and 
invention, in later years ! With this view of how to teach, and what 



the aim of our public school education is, progress will be sure and 
thorough ; and the Supervisors will give up the idea that the more 
text books swallowed the more education the child has, and also, 
neither they nor the community will expect to get good teachers 
without good pay. Wages only sufficient to supply the necessaries 
of common living will not command more than common talent, 
generally. Here, too, there is a decided call for reform. The 
superficial school exhibitions which show taxed memories rather than 
power to think and reason, cannot longer be accepted as satisfac- 
tory result for time and means expended. Our schools should do 
what they are intended for — Educate : that is, call forth the mental 
resources of the child by exciting to thought and observation — just 
the opposite of crowding the memory with facts and words. 

Our schools, as a whole, have shown commendable results the 
past year, and some of them marks of decided improvement. I 
have found that teaching the principles of Music in two of the 
schools, along with singing, has been an influence for good, and a 
great success in increasing a general interest in all their studies ; and 
formed so attractive a feature, while it lasted, as to improve the at- 
tendance and industry of the pupils. I regret that other duties pre- 
clude the further pursuit of it, but recommend to teachers the habit 
of allowing the children to sing occasionally during study hours. It 
will lift the monotony of school routine, and give brightness and 
cheerfulness in place of plodding dulness- 

School No- 1 has been taught during the autumn and winter by 
Miss Knappe of Springfield, a graduate of the State Normal School 
of Westfield- Although it is her first school, she has shown an 
aptitude and fitness for the work most encouraging. This school 
has been observed with more than usual care, that an estimate of 
the comparative value of trained teachers might, if possible, be 
made. But much more than one term is requisite to break up old 
habits and form new ones, and especially in methods of thinking and 
speaking is it long and difficult- With sufficient time, we feel Miss 
Knappe might make a model school worthy of imitation. 

At a meeting of the Committee when first organized for the duties 



6 

of the year, the following was adopted, versus the previous method 
of investing the powers of the Board nominally in one person, viz : 

*' That the teachers to be employed in the various schools, the 
amount of salaries to be paid, shall be subjects for the consideration 
of the full Board. That all bills, incidental or otherwise, for the 
maintenance of schools in the various districts shall, before pay- 
ment, receive the signature or vouchers of at least two of the Com- 
mittee. Also, that all matters of importance pertaining to schools, 
finance, or otherwise, shall be brought before the full Board for their 
consideration and decision." 

Heartily agreeing in the wisdom of the above change, and as one 
entrusted with the matters referred to, I have been led to think 
much how a better and more complete education of the children in 
our schools might be effected, and take this opportunity to present 
to the Town a few thoughts respecting its desirability and feasibil- 
ity. Believing that only quiet and calm consideration on the part 
of parents and guardians is requisite to a clear apprehension of the 
great gain that must follow a concentration of our six or seven 
schools in two if possible, or three at the most, I would recom- 
mend that this union be effected at the earliest practical moment, as 
it is the first step necessary to improvement in other respects. A 
large class, or school, furnishes a stimulant to study and effort, a 
friction of mind, the great advantage of which is scarcely appreci- 
able in a small one. A spirit of healthy emulation is excited, as 
well as an increased interest in the subjects taught ; and, conse- 
quently, much less time has to be expended by the teacher in main- 
taining the attention and order of the pupils. Then the money now 
paid as salary to many teachers can be used to defray transporta- 
tion expenses, and for apparatus to illustrate the lessons taught. 
Once books were thought all-sufficient for education. Now it is 
known that charts, diagram., maps, and instruments for the demon- 
stration of principles, more than double the value of books. A 
higher grade of teachers can be employed, also, and all, no doubt, 
from the saving resultant of the fewer number of schools- 

Every intelligent person knows that, without order, obedience, 



good discipline, the efforts of teachers to impart instruction and en- 
list the studious attention of the pupils must be in vain ; and yet, 
when a child is reprimanded at school for disobedience, parents gen- 
erally sympathize with the child, rarely question its veracity, or ask 
the teacher for explanations in order to aid in the maintenance of 
good management- And the child thus encouraged is emboldened to 
fresh attempts to dispute the authority of its benefactor or teacher ; 
and the elements of disintegration are constantly and surely under- 
mining any constructive work which the teacher, properly aided, 
might perform, and a good degree of success is unattainable, how- 
ever capable and conscientious the teacher may be. A change on 
the part of parents in this respect is absolutely needful, if the child's 
interest and that of the school is to be advanced- Thoughtlessness 
or indifference here is almost or quite unpardonable, as their bad 
effects are so far reaching and involve the welfare of so many. 
Consider how much more a teacher with the parents' cooperation 
can do for a child ! Knowing that his parents are at one with the 
teacher in the efforts to establish good order and decorum, the child 
will shrink from having it known at home that he has broken the 
rules of the school or defied its authority ; and, instead of seeking 
sympathy, will seek how to conform to good habits of conduct and 
study. Then, too, openness with the teacher may disclose points of 
character in the child that the parent may otherwise never have 
opportunity to learn, till some bad deed to society reveals a tendency 
hitherto unsuspected- The moral as well as intellectual stamp of the 
child is largely wrapped up in the years of its public school life, and 
no parent can afford not to avail himself of the aid of the teacher at 
this period when character as well as intellect is being developed. 
Union of schools and union of effort on the part of parents and 
teachers so to raise the standard of our school and home education 
that every department of our children's miud and character shall be 
broadened, sweetened and purified to earnest and honest endeavor 
for human relief and elevation, is the burden, then, of what I would 
present to you. I have only indicated, or briefly outlined, my 
thoughts respecting how and where to begin the work of bettering 



our schools, but I feel that thinking people scarcely need more than 
iiints to see all, and more than I see, from these steps, and that I 
have not overstated the advantages we may reasonably expect from 
the course I have recommended. A little pains, rightly directed, 
will improve ourselves at the same time that it blesses others. 

H. W. SMITH, 
Chairman of School Committee. 





Superintendent's Report. 



Your Superintendent is happy to report that your Committee 
have been fortunate in securing teachers that have taken a deep 
interest in their work ; and where parents and scholars have 
cooperated with the teacher, we found the schools to be a success. 
But where we find the scholars not at school, we cannot blame 
teachers for scholars not improving. We find there have been 92 
scholars attending school the past year. Of that number 18 have 
attended the 150 days that school has been in session. The 
average has been only nine and one-half. We find there is a 
goodly number who have a clean record for one term. Some of our 
schools have been so small that much of the interest and benefit is 
lost- This was caused in two cases by families moving out of town . 
The problem of consolidating our schools is one that has puzzled the 
wise, and is too great for your Superintendent- 

J. B- ROOT, Superintendent.

Annual Report 



OP THE 



SCHOOL COMMITTEE 



OF THE 



TOWN OF GREENWICH, 



FOR THE YEAB 



1 886-7 



IR/E PORT 



OF THE 



SCHOOL COMMITTEE 

for 1886-7. 



The cheerful acquiescence of our citizens in the maintenance of our 
public schools in excess of the time required by the provisions of 
the public statutes, marks their advance, and is an indication of their 
confidence in the elevating influences of education. 

The control of the educational department of our town is vested in a 
Committee of three, whose duties not only involve care and responsibili- 
ty, but require the exercise of sound judgement and ability to faithfully 
discharge them. 

The number of school houses used, and the number of teachers em- 
ployed the past year were three each, with the exception of the spring 
term, when No. 6 was used with Miss Douglass as teacher. 

The assessors' valuation of all the buildings and land was $2,000. 

The tslal enrolment of pupils was 79. 

The average membership was 68. 

The average attendance was 62. 

Your Committee, in their last year's report, aimed to present some 
fundamental principles which, if regarded, will aid to a larger and bet- 
ter education than our public schools have heretofore bestowed And 
your committee can scarcely do better now than to reiterate, or beg of 
parents, teachers and pupils to re-read that report and make renewed 
efforts to put in practice what is there outlined. The concentration of 
schools was there urged as a means of economy and greater educational 
advantage, and we are led to reprint the following brief extract be- 
cause of the importance we attach to it: 

"Believing that only quiet and calm consideration on the part of par- 
ents and guardians is requisite to a clear apprehension of the great gain 
that must follow a concentration of our six or seven schools in two if 
possible, or three at the most, I would recommend that this union be 
effected at the earliest practical moment, as it is the first step necessary 



to improvement in other respects. A large class, or school, furnishes a 
stimulant to study and effort, a friction of mind, the great advantage of 
which is scarcely appreciable in a small one A spirit of healthy emula- 
tion is excited, as well as an increased interest in the subjects taught : 
and, consequently, much less time has to be expended by the teacher in 
maintaining the attention and order of the pupils. Then the money 
now paid as salary to many teachers can be used to defray transporta- 
tion expenses, and for apparatus to illustrate the lessons taught. Once 
BOOKS were thought all-sufficient for education. Now ii is known that 
charts, diagrams, maps, and instruments for the demonstration of prin- 
ciples, more than double the value of books. A higher grade of teach- 
ers can be employed, also, and all, no doubt, from the saving resultant 
of the fewer number of schools." 

Your Committee have seen fit the past year to merge some schools in- 
to others, where the number of pupils did not warrant the employment 
of teachers and the accompaning necessary expenses. This has, of 
course, increased the cost of transportation on the one hand, but les- 
sened the aggregate expenses in much larger proportion on the other. 
As, for example, the salaries of the teachers for the three schools discon- 
tinued would, for thirty weeks each at $6 per w r eek, amount to $540, and 
with fuel and incidental expenses would aggregate $o75. Deduct excess 
of expenditures over last year in transportation, and there is left a net 
gain or saving of $)>18.9G besides the advantages to the pupils already 
stated. The aggregate of salaries paid teachers last year was $1,045.00 
— amount paid this year was $681.00. 

It is neither intended nor advised by the Committee to make further 
reduction by concentration until our town at some future time can af- 
ford one large commodious building, that will accommodate all needed 
grades and a high school. 

Your Committee would call attention to the erroneous idea, somewhat 
prevalent, that a large number of school houses dotted here and there 
over the town, add to the value of real estate in their vicinity. An in- 
telligent person visiting Greenwich with an eye to residence and educa- 
tional facilities for his children, would at once decide that so sparsely 
settled a town could not possibly afford trained teachers for so many 
school houses as Greenwich presents. While one large commodious 
building and grounds with department for all grades, furnished with 
necessary apparatus, charts, maps, etc., would at once attract settlers, 
and thus increase; a hundred-fold the value of real estate thoughout the 
town. Will the citizens of our beautiful town consider this view of the 
matter, and help toward the growth of a place upon which nature has 
so bountifully lavished her beauties of hill, dale, mount, running stream 
and lake, forming as complete a panorama of delight as any town of no 



greater extent in. the old Commonwealth affords. Your Committee Can- 
not too strongly emphasize again the need of well trained teachers, that 
our children may not need to go from home for that education which is 
as easily attainable in Greenwich as elsewhere, were all the appliances 
that can be here furnished rightly directed and expended. Well-trained 
teachers cannot be retained in schools like ours for a long period, be- 
cause they can command much larger pay than we, with our six or 
seven schools, can afford to give them, and so, although we may have 
their first efforts in teaching after their graduation, when they wish to 
know how successfully they can apply what they have learned, we lose 
the added advantage which their experience for a term or two of teach- 
ing has given them. Your Committee has been fortunate the past year 
in securing the services of a few such teachers, but cannot hope they 
will long remain under our present arrangements for the reason already 
indicated — lack of adequate pay. This subjects us to a frequent 
change, most detrimental to the children's progress, and ought in 
some way to be overcome as a needless hindrance to their advance. The 
following resolution upon this point was discussed and passed at a re- 
cent meeting of The Schoolmasters Club at the Brunswick in Boston. 

" Resolved, That we, the members of Schoolmasters' Club of Massa- 
chusetts, believe that provisions of law, making more permanent the 
tenure of office of teachers, are essential to the highest welfare of the 
public schools of the Commonwealth, and that the same should be enac- 
ted." 

Since this resolve was passed by the Club, the Legislature by a recent 
enactment has recognized this principle of civil service in contracting 
with teachers. Thus we see that high authority has moved in a matter 
wherein the need here is plainly seen by your Committee. With the ex- 
ocn/ion of supplying new seats and desks in one or two instances, our 
school houses and their belongings have been left for a long series of 
years to the ravages of time and bad usage, until, instead of being any 
credit to the town, they were nearly, or quite, its disgrace — so that your 
Committee felt called upon to make needed repairs and alteration, that 
what should be the pride of a town shall at last cease to be its dishonor. 
And it has required much more money to put them in habitable order 
than if each year something had been expended to arrest their decay ; 
but money cannot be used in a be'tter cause, and once fairly renovated, 
the Committee will expect teachers and pupils to unite in maintaining 
their good appearance — and further, they will expect the teacher to ex- 
ercise such watchfulness as to be able to point out the one who may 
needlessly injure or deface anything on the premises. A needful part 



6 

of a child's training is to overcome his natural destructiveness and learn 
habits of order, care and cleanliness. Your Committee has seen it for 
the advantage of the schools to expend a small Bum for new reading 
books, exchanging the old. The children had become so familiar with 
the old readers as to be able to report most of the lessons by heart, and 
thus these books were useless either to interest or instruct them. To en- 
force what was said in last years Report respecting the way to teach 
grammar, we quote from Herbert Spencer— than whom there is prob- 
ably no greater authority living as regard principles that underlie men- 
tal training. He says: " Grammar rules .should be among the latest 
studies taken in school, because an analytical study, and therefore un- 
suited to young pupils. Correct speech should be taught to children »\ 
ear, and absolutely, as the multiplication table is." If the time now 
spent over recitations of grammar rules were given to talking lkssons. 
and if the teachers understood that they, and not the grammar 
books, are responsible for the correct speech of the class, accuracy 
would be in the atmosphere, and children, who are by nature 
imitative, would quickly adopt it. It is true the teacher has but 
a few hours daily to overcome the influences of bad grammar, but these 
are impressive hours, or should be made so. Each reading lesson, too, 
may become a grammar lesson. Young children may be taught to ob- 
serve that the small personages of a story never say " I done it," 
** Them's it." Children speak as their elders and playmates do, and 
when the playmates are all gathered together, in free and lively conver- 
sation, the teacher pointing out the correct, and warning against the in- 
elegant phrases, would make the class observant. " Teacher says " is :i 
quotation that shows the spoken arrow has gone home. Only very un- 
common children are heard to quote what " the book says." 

s 

Our schools the past year have on the whole exhibited many gratifying 
features, and had the attendance been as prompt and regular as it should 
always be, we believe no reasonable fault could be found with them. 
When parents are as reluctant to take their children from school a day, 
as to take food from their mouths for that length of time, teachers can 
better demonstrate the worth of their efforts at the close of each term. 

To recapitulate. Teachers should understand the philosophy of 
teaching, and never suppose that the reading of questions from text 
books and listening to the correct repeating of the words of the answer 
by the pupils necessarily forms any part of their divine art. 

Call forth the mental resources of the child by apt questioning, and 



thus put him in working possession of his own faculties, and the labor 
of teaching soon becomes a misnomer. 

Allow no ungrammatical word or phrase to fall from the lips of a pu- 
pil without correction. 

Make oral and written reading exercises prominent, as they tend to 
the education of the eye and head, constituting the means by which the 
child will be enabled to continue his education throughout his career — 
when all the details of school instruction are wholly forgotten. 

Let there be open sympathy, as far as possible, between parents and 
teachers, that the children may not expect any support at home in any 
misdemeanor they may be guilty of at school, and thus retard the best 
welfare of themselves and the school at large. 

There is no intention on the part of the Committee to detract from 
the value of other studies. Too much emphasis cannot be laid upon 
arithmetical analysis, but arithmetic as a branch is rarely neglected, and 
is less far reaching in its results toward a complete education than those 
dwelt upon, and which are more frequently neglected. Drawing should 
be omitted scarcely less than writing, for the beneficial ends it subserves 
in all the industries. In the study of geography and history the draw- 
ing of maps should never be neglected. The importance of the study of 
physiology and hygiene recently introduced as a branch of public in- 
struction cannot be over estimated, and moral health as well as physical 
may be anticipated as a legitimate result. 

Educate — not stuff the mind with facts, figures and words — but 
educe, draw forth the powers of mind and heart in the child, and so 
direct him as to enable him to apply them in such field of thought or 
industry as his taste and circumstances may please him. This is the 
work the instructors of our youth have in charge, and that they may be 
impressed with the ardor and devotion necessary to maintain the high 
character needful for such a grand purpose, is the earnest prayer of 
each and all the members of your Committee.

ANNUAL REPORT 



— OF THE 



SCHOOL COMMITTEE 



-OF TEIE- 



TOWN OF GREENWICH, 



FOR THE YEAR 



18 87-8. 



3 " 



13 

To the Citizens of Greenwich:— 

We present for your consideration our report of the progress 
and present condition of the schools committed to our care. 

AVe have endeavored to give to eacli school our most careful and 
earnest consideration, in order that we might judge intelligently concern- 
ing the needs and advantages in our power to bestow. 

Your committee thought it advisable, under the circumstances, to 
have a school in the north part of the town the past year, instead of 
transporting the scholars to the Village school, as was d me last year. 
and in the aggregate at nearly the same expense. Therelorc there have 
been four schools maintained the past year. The number of children of 
school age March 1st, 1887 was 53. There have been 92 enrolled in the 
public schools during the year, including 10 over fifteen years of age. 
r i ne length of each school, relative cost, number of pupils, and cost per 
pupil can be seen by reference to the table accompanying this report. 
Your committee have endeavored to secure the best teachers obtainable 
with the means at their disposal, employing none but those of experience 
and tried ability, and in this particular they have been successful. 

The school on the Plain, (Xo. 1) has been taught dining the school 
year by Miss Mattie S. Howard, with much credit to herself and pupils. 
The school at the Village, (Xo. 2) was taught the Spring term by Miss 
C. C. Douglass. The Summer term by Miss II. A. Orcutt. The Win- 
ter term was taught by Miss Mabel A. Phelps, an accomplished teacher 
and thorough disciplinarian. The school at the north district was taught 
the Spring term by Miss Lillian M. Thayer. The Summer and Winter 
terms by Miss Rosa C. Wheeler. This school, though small, and the at- 
tendance irregular, particularly the winter term, on account of sickness, 
has done good work. On East Street. Xo. 7 was taught the Spring term 
of seven weeks by Miss E. V. Lawrence. The Summer and Winter 
terms by Miss C. C. Douglass in her usual practical way, with unfailing 
success. We have supported four schools the past year, and we believe 
that the result of the year's work will compare favorably with those 
that have preceded it. We have found our teachers careful and pains- 
taking, and the pupils willing and eager to succeed in their studies, and 
willing to conform to the rules of the school room. 

We are happy to say our registers are quite free from tardy mark-, 
though absent marks in some of our schools are quite too common, in 
many cases, no doubt, on account of sickness, while in others it is a lack 
of enthusiasm, and this is not the fault of any one alone, for there are 
four parties at least concerned — parents, pupils, teachers and committee. 
We need to labor earnestly and unitedly in order that the children may 
be as enthusiatic in their studies as they are in their plays. We have all 
noticed that thev are enthusiastic when thev are engaged in the work 



■»"W

they like to do. Now suppose that arithmetic is blind and difficult, it is 
far bettor to encourage by leading them over the mount of difficulty 
than to scold or drive them, for the former gives them a new impulse, 
while the hitter puts out the spark that ought to be rekindled. 

Unfortunately the geographical situation of our town is inconvenient 
for the consolidation of our schools, but something must be done. If 
the town is to maintain a school in each of its districts it will be neces- 
sary to appropriate a sum of money sufficient to thoroughly repair or 
build them anew, for most of them in their present condition are simply 
a disgrace to the town. If the citizens of this town will look at it care- 
fully, considering the outlay for putting Nos. 3, 1. 5 and G in a respecta- 
ble condition for school purposes, will come to this conclusion that a con- 
solidation of all our schools into two will not only save the town con- 
siderable expense, but will aid us very much in assisting those boys and 
girls who need help, and would profit by it. It is an actual fact that 
they do not have an equal advantage with many in the place, for if the 
school is small there will be a lack of interest and enthusiasm on the 
part of scholars and teachers. Furthermore it seems hardly profitable 
to continue a school if there are only a few present. Xow what shall 
we do? We ought not to neglect them, Ave must not, for they have an 
undisputed right to the public school patronage, and are worthy of our 
consideration. Suppose we attempt to consolidate, then some one is in- 
convenienced on account of certain circumstances we cannot avoid, 
but the school has better advantages because we can give them more 
schooling and secure better instruction. 

Xow your committee do earnestly recommend that the town dis- 
pose of some of their old school houses Xo. 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6, and with 
the proceeds build a new and commodious school house just outside the 
village on the road leading to the Depot, and transport all scholars in 
the north part of the town to this house. The present location of the 
Village school is decidedly bad, the ground in front is so very steep it is 
difficult of access with a team, and in an icy time decidedly dangerous. 

In conclusion: We gratefully express our thanks to the teachers 
of our several schools the past year for the zeal, fidelity and prompt- 
ness with which they have responded to any suggestion regarding our 
schools. AVc would not omit to recognize 1 the gratifying increase in the 
interest and attendance of parents and friends upon the several schools, 
and it is hoped it will continue in the years which arc to come.

OF THE 



»eho©l ©©maaaSibi 



To the Citizens of Greenwich:— 

Your comuiittcc beg leave to make the following report. AV r e 
congratulate ourselves on the success in obtaining good teachers. All of 
our teachers have been of a high order, and if scholars have failed to 
learn the fault is not to be laid to them, for they have all been devoted 
to their work. All of our schools have been more or less interrupted 
by sickness. 

School No. 1, spring term, was taught by Miss Mattie Howard, who 
had taught the school several terms before. The fall and winter terms 
'were taught by Miss EllaE. Glover, who brought a large amount of en- 
thusiasm to her work, but through lack of experience did not accomplish 
as much good work in the fall term as she was doing in the winter. 
when her school was obliged to stop on account of sickness. 

School No- 2, w^s taught the first two terms by Miss Mabello Phelps 
whose great success was socurod by good discipline. The last term 
taught by Miss Lizzie Kobinson, whose experience has been such That 
scholars. cqii|4 not faij to, (earn if tljey hac] the )ea»t disposition to olo so ? 



1 1 

School Xo, 4, the spring' and fall terms were taught by Hiss Carrie 
Wheeler. The school was small in numbers. The teacher having the 
1 >ve of her pupils made her work easy and successful. The winter term 
is being taught by Miss Lucy Parker, with larger numbers and good 
success. 

School No. 7 was taught by .Miss C. C. Douglass, who had an ad- 
vantage over the other teachers by having had the school for a number 
of terms. In this school we find the most enthusiasm on the part of pa- 
rents and scholars, this being shown by their having the largest number, 
according to the number of scholars, neither absent or tardy. 

Where there is a similar effort ou the part of parents, teacher and 
scholars, there cannot fail of being success. Your committee regret 
there are any in town who, by lack of interest or otherwise, fail to send 
or allow their children to attend school. 

J. U. ROOT, Chairman.

ANNUAL REPORT 



OF THE 

SCHOOL COAAITTEE 

^•OF GREENWICH.-^ 

For the Year 1889-90. 









ANNUAL REPORT 



— OF THE — 



SCHOOL COA/AITTEE 



The undersigned, School Committee of the town of Greenwich, re- 
spectfully present the following report for the year ending- March 1 
1890: 

CONDITION AND WORK OF THE SCHOOLS. 

The schools have made, on the whole, good progress, some of them 
excellent, during the year. In nearly every instance experienced 
teachers have been employed. Your Committee have maintained schools 
in Districts No. 1, 2, and 4 three terms each; in No. 7 two terms. Dur- 
ing the fall term the scholars from this district were transported to the 
school in No. 1. 

The schools have been In session thirty weeks; the spring and fall 
terms were not interrupted on account of sickness, but the winter term 
in all the schools has been more or less by the prevailing epidemic, La 
Grippe, which has been so general all over the world, and has not left 
Greenwich untouched. Your Committee feel that all the teachers have 
labored faithfully, and their desire has been to sec the children under 
their care progress in knowledge and moral character. The following 
will show somewhat in detail the condition and work of each school. 

DISTRICT NO. 1. 

This school has been unfortunate in having a different teacher each 
term. The spring term was in charge of Miss Ella E. Glover, who had 
taught the same school for two terms previous, and your Committee feel 



Town of Gbeekwich. 13 

urc that many of the parents and pupils will join them in thanking her 
for the earnest and unwearied efforts to guide her pupils not only iii the 
path of knowledge, but in those higher walks, which joined with knowl- 
edge, make true men and women. The fall term was in charge of Miss 
Lila M. Taylor. We were fortunate in securing for the winter term 
Miss Lillian M. Thayer, a former teacher in our schools, and although 
sickness in her family has caused a break in the term, we feel sure this 
school will show good progress at its close. At this writing it is in ses- 
sion. Your Committee extend to her their heartfelt sympathy in her 
bereavement. 

DISTRICT NO. 2. 

This school for the spring term was taught by Miss May A. White, 
who although an excellent disciplinarian, was not entirely satisfactory 
to the Committee. The fall and winter terms have been in charge of 
Miss Fannie P. "Walker, whose efforts have been untiring in her endeav- 
ors for her pupils. Miss Walker is an excellent teacher of much ability 
and literary culture and your Committee desire to retain her services 
for the coming year. 

DISTRICT NO. 4. 

This school has been in charge of Miss Lucy A. Parker for the en- 
tire year and has made good progress. Whenever visited by the Com- 
mittee, it has been orderly and quiet and paving close attention to what 
ever duties were before them. Miss Parker's methods are not to see 
how far her pupils can advanee in a text book, but rather to see how 
thoroughly they can acquire knowledge that shall ill them for the duties 
of life. 

DISTRICT NO. 7. 

Miss C. C. Douglass had this school for the spring term and it was 
taught with her usual success. The school in this district, as was noted 
above, has had but two terms. The winter term was taught by Miss 
Hannah M. Holway. We believe this was her first effort in teaching, 
and she was most successful, and your Committee can cheerful [y recom- 
mend her as a teacher of much promise. 

GENERAL REMARKS. 

Methods and measures of education are constantly changing, there- 
fore new text books are constantly being printed. W^hile we think it 
unwise to adopt a new method or book because it is new, yet we think 
that any improvement in educational work is an advantage to our 
schools. At the beginning of the school year we supplied the schools 



1-4 Annual Report of titk 



with Language Charts, and at the commencement of the fall term, after 
careful examination, your Committee decided to change the Readers and 
Geographies then in use in our schools for Harper's series, believing 
good results will follow. We also feel the need of more illustrative ap- 
paratus, consisting of maps and charts, and we hope to be able to supply 
them in part the coming year. 

The Committee would recommend the teachers to make more use of 
the text books in United States history for supplementary reading. We 
wish to call attention to a fault that we fear is too prevalent in our town, 
and that is the children, in too many cases,are allowed to be absent from 
school, and regret that we are obliged to ask your most careful consider- 
ation of this matter and hope you will see to it that the registers of the 
coming year will show a great falling off in the list of absent. When 
you consent to your child's being absent, you not only wrong your own 
child, but others that are members of the same classes; for it breaks 
lip, to a great extent, the progress of the class, and leaves a blank in the 
course of study which, often repeated, begets an indifference and the pu- 
pil will become discouraged and may desire to discontinue his attend- 
ance at school. 

With regard to repairs, we have not been called upon to make but 
very few during the past year, and are happy to be able to congratulate 
the citizens of Greenwich that we have come within the appropriation 
for the schools. The parents are earnestly requested to visit the schools 
where their children attend, and become acquainted with the methods 
and real condition of the schools. 

In conclusion let us remember we are making future citizens of 
our children, and see to it that we are helpers, and not hinderers to 
their progress, but by co-operation with the committee and teachers, 
carry forward the work of raising the standard of our schools, that 
will enable them to give the youth of our town such an education that 
will best fit them to occupy useful and trusted positions in life.

OP THE 



Sehjool ©orqrrjittQG 



During the year just closed the town has maintained three schools, 
whose benefits have been shared by seventy-eight pupils. 

The average attendance in all the schools has been low, especially 
during the winter term. Much of the absence has been due to sickness, 
and therefore unavoidable ; but it is not easy to believe that all the marks 
which cloud the pages of the registers are referable to that cause. Too 
often, it is to be feared, pupils have been absent from school simply be- 
cause they did not wish to go; or for some other trivial reason. 

It is a fact too plain to need statement in this report that, in order 
to receive the benefits of school, pupils must be present at its exercises. 

This fact it recognized in the law which requires all children be- 
tween the ages of eight and fourteen to attend school for at least thirty 
weeks every school year, if the schools are maintained for so long a 
time. "This law is violated, if, without some Providential reason, the 
child is absent from school or tardy in his attendance during this time." 

It is hoped that parents and guardians will realize more fully the 
importance of prompt and constant attendance for the children under 
their charge. 

The school in No. 4 was closed two weeks in December, on account 
of the outbreak of a contagious disease among the pupils. La'er it was 
again closed on account of the illness of the teacher; and, at this writing, 
it is in session, with Miss Elizabeth Main, a recent graduate of the West- 
field Normal School, as teacher. 



21 

All the teachers are to be commended for the faithful, earnest spirit 
shown in their work of the past year, and it is confidently expected that 
the good results already gained will stimulate them to greater efforts in 
the future. 

The truth of the proposition, that the school is what the teacher 
makes it, is too apparent to need the proof of a demonstration. 

It is also true that, to do his best work, the best teacher must have 
the cordial support of the community, and must be well supplied with 
maps, charts, books of reference, and other appliances for teaching. The 
skilled teacher may, indeed, accomplish much where insufficient aids are 
provided; but, to do his best work, these must be abundant. 

The Committee have endeavored to supply some of the helps so nec- 
essary to successful teaching. One set of outline maps has been pur- 
chased at an expense of fifteen dollars. Another set should be added 
immediately. In the way of supplementary reading, Geographical 
Readers have been furnished to the older pupils and two sets of Primers 
to beginners. 

The pupils in some of our best city schools read twelve or thirteen 
different Prinlers during their first school year. Primary reading as 
taught in those schools is almost a revelation to those accustomed only to 
the old plodding way. 

But we have made only a beginning in the right direction. 
The need of more blackboard space at once is imperative. 
Book cases or closets should be provided for keeping books and 
maps not in use. Thi* last is a matter of economy as well as convenience. 
To do the best possible work, our teachers need to spend time and 
money visiting the best schools in the State. In that way they will learn 
many new and better methods of teaching. The reading of educational 
journals and pedagogical works is also helpful. 

The fact that it requires greater skill to teach well our ungraded 
rural schools, than the carefully graded schools of the cities and larger 
towns, where the salaries paid average nearly, if not quite, double those 
paid here, is perhaps not fully realized. 

It is well to remember, too, that a poor teacher is dear at any price, 
while it is a wise economy that retains a good teacher at a high price. 

In view of all that we expect of our teachers, of all that we would 
have the schools do for the children who are trained in them, a generous 
appropriation is asked for their maintenance, and all the citizens of the 
town are urged to take a more active interest in all that pertains to their 
welfare. 

FANNIE P. WALKER, Superintendent.

REPORT 



-OF THE— 



Trustees of the Public Library. 



The Trustees of the Public Library respectfully submit the follow* 
lug as their first annual report The organization of the Library has 
been a matter of so recent occurrence, and with which the citizens of 
the town are so familiar, that the Trustees feel that scarcely any formal 
statement is necessary. At the last annual town meeting it was voted 
to accept of the orovisions of the law establishing Free Public Libraries, 
and an appropriation of one hundred and twenty-five dollars was made, 
and a board of Trustees was elected to carry it into effect. The Trus- 
tees immediately proceeded to the work of organizing and putting the 
library in proper shape for circulation. This was accomplished, and 
the Library was opened, on the nineteenth of September last. Since 
that time the interest in. the library has constantly increased, in fact has 
exceeded the expectation of the trustees. During the month of Febru- 
ary, the trustees made an examination of the library, and found it in 
good condition, every book being on the shelves, in accordance with 
Art. 8, of the rules and regulations. 

The Trustees would however, urge upon all, the necessity of care- 
ful usage, in order that the greatest possible amount of service may be 
obtained from the books. The Public Library is an established fact, it 
is a part of the town's institutions, and in order for it to prove successful 
it must meet the wants, and suit the tastes of all. 

"Books," says a distinguished writer, "contain the elements of 
character: the more familiar the person's acquaintance with them, and 
the higher the standard of his reading, so much the higher will be his 
social standard." 



24 

In connection with our own Library, the Trustees do not wish to 
direct the public reading, nor to take upon themselves the absolute au- 
thority of deciding what books shall be purchased for the Library. They 
feel that the Public Library is an institution of the people, supported by 
public taxation, and as such, every intelligent citizen has some voice in 
saying what class of literature shall be placed upon its shelves. There- 
fore the Trustees ask the co-operation of the citizens in suggesting to 
the Librarian, or themselves, such books as may be thought proper to 
be placed in the Library. 

Finally, a Public Library, to be successful, must be progressive; 
constant acquisition must be made to its numbers. To accomplish this 
end, pecuniary aid must be granted by the town ; accordingly, the Trus- 
tees recommend the appropriation of such sums of money as the assemb- 
led wisdom of the town may think proper to successfully carry forward 
the work of the ensuing year. 

, The thanks of the Trustees are due to one of their number, who has 
acted as Librarian, performing the duties assigned to that office in a 
very faithful manner, without any remuneration. 

The whole number of volumes in new library, Feb. 26, '92, was 313 
Of which number, one hundred and eighty-one, (181) volumes were 
donated by the State, thirty-seven, (37) by Miss E. P. Lohier and other- 
friends; ninety-one, (91) volumes added by purchase, and the remaiug 
ing (4) volumes by other friends.

REPORT 



-OF THK- 



Trustees of the Public Library. 



The Trustees of the Public Library respectfully submit the follow- 
ing- as their second annual report. At the last annual town meeting-. 
March 1892, an appropriation of one hundred dollars ($100) was granted 
the Library for the purchase of books. Of this, ninety-nine dollars and 
sixty cents ($99.60) has been expended for that purpose. This sum is 
represented by one hundred and one (101) new volumes, In addition, 
forty (40) volumes have during the year been donated by Miss Anna 
Cabot Lodge and other friends, making the whole number of books 
now in the Library four hundred and fifty-three (453). During the 
month of February an examination of the Library was made, and every 
book aocounted for, according to Art. 8 of the Rules and Regula- 
tions. The Trustees earnestly recommend that for the coming year 
an appropriation to be made adequate to the needs of the Library, to 
render it not only progressive, but that the interest already awakened 
may be sustained.

MISS F. P. WALKER. [ inw< 

MISS A. M. ROOT, 

MRS. S. G. CROWELL. ) 



OF THE 



Sehjool ©orqrqittoe. 



To the Citizens of Greenwich: 

The Committee chosen by the town consisted of Dr. F. M. Gould, 
Miss Fannie P. Walker and Wm. S. Douglas. Organized with Wm. S. 
Douglas as chairman and secretary, Miss Fannie P. Walker as superin- 
tendent. Miss Walker being engaged in teaching in Hardwick, most of 
the responsibility of looking after the interests of the schools has 
devolved upon the secretary. He has endeavored to give to each school 
his most careful and untiring efforts concerning their needs, that they 
might have everything in his power to bestow. Upon the review of the 
year we can say that the schools, with one exception, have been quite 
successful, and some of them have attained to a high degree of excel- 
lence. 

All the teachers have been untiring in their efforts for the best wel- 
fare of their pupils. 

During the year just closed the town has maintained three schools 
each thirty-three weeks, which is an improvement upon last year. 

It is t© be hoped we may extend the time of our schools to thirty- 
six weeks per year. Few towns have less. It is a matter of regret that 
some of our pupils attend school so irregularly, the best teachers find 
their efforts retarded by it. It ought not to be a matter of wonder that 
a scholar who is absent two days out of five, through the term, is not 
interested in his school, nor improving in his studies. It is a question 
how far parents and guardians have a right to the time of children 
during school hours. If the State has a right to compel children to at- 



18 Annual Report of the School Committee. 

tend upon the public schools, it has also a right to say, within certain 
limits, what the amount and conditions of that attendance shall be. 
"The State requires, every year thirty weeks attendance at school, of 
every child between eight and fourteen years of age." The School 
Board have authority to compel the attendance of scholars for thirty 
weeks, or to compel a fine to be imposed upon parents whose children 
have not been in school the required time. The present Committee have 
not enforced this law, though there are cases where it might be en- 
forced. The moral right of parents to keep their children from school 
is even more questionable than legal. 

It is hoped that parents and guardians will realize more fully the 
importance of prompt and constant attendance for the children under 
their charge. 

What has been said as to the regularity, etc., of scholars, has been 
said because your Committee are of the opinion that much of the fric- 
tion in No. 2 School might have been obviated had parents co-operated 
with teachers and committee for the best good of all concerned. Your 
Committee regret very much that parents do not visit the schools more 
and familiarize themselves with the teacher and pupils, and encourage 
them in their work. If parents realized how much good a word of ap- 
probation from a parent does a teacher or pupil, we are sure they would 
visit schools more, and not withhold that encouragement which their 
visits would give. Your committee have purchased very few books the 
past year, which necessitates the purchase of more the coining year. 
We need new books for supplementary reading, etc. The repairs have 
been few the past year: there has been some new blackboards put in No. 
2, and we have some new book cases for Nos. 1 and 2, as a receptacle 
of books and supplies, which were very much needed, and we are sure 
will be a matter of economy as well as convenience. 

In conclusion ; we greatf ully acknowledge our thanks to the teach- 
ers, for the promptness and fidelity with which they have responded to 
any suggestions which we have made regarding our schools. Let us 
not forget we are making future citizens of our children, and let us be 
helpers, and not hinderers to their progress, but by co-operation with 
teachers and committee raise the standard of our schools, so as to fit 
them for useful and trusted positions in life.

REPORT OF LIBRARY TRUSTEES. 



The Trustees of the Public Library respectfully submit the following 
as their third annual report : 

At the last annual town meeting an appropriation of forty dollars ($40) 
was made the Library tor books and expenses. Of this sum nine dollars 
($9) was at the beginning of the year paid for insurance, covering a term 
of three years, from June, 1893, to June, 1896. Six dollars ($6) has been 
used for a new book-case, leaving the small sum of twenty-five dollars ($25) 
to be expended for books. With this, twenty-eight (28) new volumes 
have been purchased at an expense of twenty-four dollars and thirty-six 
cents ($24.36). During the month of February an examination of the Li- 
brary was made. The books, with few exceptions, were found in good con- 
dition and every volume accounted for, in accordance with Art. 8 ot the 
rules and regulations. We desire here to express our thanks, as well as 
the thanks of the public, to friends who have kindly donated books to the 
Library during the year. The Trustees again recommend that at the next 
annual town-meeting a more generous appropriation be made for the pur- 
chase of books than was made at the meeting in 1893.

SCHOOL REPORT. 



To the Inhabitants of Greenwich : 

Another year has passed, and as the law requires, your Committee 
make a report of their doings. But of what use will it be to spend *.ime 
and paper to do this? Who among our citizens ever reads or takes heed 
of what is printed in this connection? The committee could go into a 
long list of reasons why such and such things should be ; but what is the 
use? Some of our inhabitants are much dissatisfied because our schools 
are not on a par with some of our neighboring towns. 

Your Committee, with the limited amount of money we are allowed to 
spend, have secured the best teachers we could, and we think with good 
success. Our schools for the past year have been quite successful. All 
the teachers have been untiring in their efforts for the best welfare of their 
pupils.- To be sure, your Committee have had (like all School Commit- 
tees) some trying and perplexing matters to get along with, but we still 
live. 

School No. i has been for the past three years under the charge of the 
same teacher. Your Committee think that is about all the praise which 
should be given, for, in our opinion, a better managed school, or one that 
will show better results, might be looked for long before found. School 
No. 2 has been under the charge of one teacher the whole year, a former 
teacher in No. 4. She has been untiring in her efforts for the best good 
ot her pupils, and has attained much success. The discipline in this 
school has been ot the first order. At the close ot the tall term your Com - 
mittee regretted to find by the register that certain pupils were so irregular 
in their attendance, one pupil being absent 18 1-2 days out of 6d. This is 
a matter that parents and not teachers are responsible for. The best 
teachers find their efforts retarded, by such irregularities, and all the 
school suffers thereby. Your Committee wish parents might realize how 
much the records might be improved by a little care and thouginfulness 
on their part. No. 4 school was taught by a young teacher in summer, 
this being her first term ; her success was quite marked. The fall and win- 
ter terms were taught by a teacher of much experience in this and other 
towns. Her methods are not to see how far her pupils can advance in a 
text book, but rather to see how thoroughly they can acquire the knowl- 
edge that shall fit them tor the duties of life. Your Committee again urge 



SCHOOL REPORT. IJ 



upon parents and friends the duty which they owe to their children and 
the schools, the duty which will lead them to visit and manifest an interest 
in the work which the teachers and the pupils are trying to do.

SCHOOL REPORT. 



The school board for 1894 and *95 consisted of Miss Fannie P. 
Walker. Geo. X. Duncan and Win. S. Douglas. The board organized 
with Geo, N. Duncan as Chairman. Wm. S. Douglas. Superintendent 
and Secretary. 

The number of children of school age returned by the 96 M 
May 1894, was 58. 

S hool Xo. 1 has been under the charge of the same teacher for the 
past five years, her faithful service during all this time abundantly 
proves her fitness for the position. 

B hool Xo. 2 has had four teachers the past year. The spring term 
was the fourth by the same teacher: most excellent discipline was 
maintained. Some friction arose during the last of the term, the re- 
nsibility for which, in the opinion of yonr Committee, rests largely 
upon the parents. The fall term was taught by a graduate of the 
Springfield Training School. The progress of the school under her 
practical, thorough system of teaching was marked and seemed a revela- 
tion of the possibilities we might reasonably expect from a continuance 
of such training. The children were taught to think for then 
The progress was very marked The winter term ha- been under the 
rare of a former teacher in this school. 8he combines many of the 1 
qualities for a m :ul teacher, and has worked with untiring 

seal for the best good of her pnpils. It i- very gratifying to your Com- 
mittee to see the improvement in tin- school, and we arc confidant if 
parents and friend- would do their part a- faithfully as the teacher, 
much larger results might be obtained. 



ANNUAL REPORT OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 19 

School No. 3 was taught by the same teacher who taught fall and 
winter of '93, closing her year in June '94. A most excellent teacher. 
Your committee would gladly have retained her. The fall and winter 
terms were under the care of a Northfield graduate, a teacher of limited 
experience, but one who thoroughly loved children, and has proved her- 
self quite equal to the position. This school is much larger than in 
former years. This school house has been thoroughly repaired and 
when a few more desks are added will be as comfortable as any we 
have. 

But few changes have been made in text books the past year. We 
have introduced Fry's Primary Gegraphy, which is a great improvement. 
The edition for advanced grades is expected in the near future. We 
have added some Normal Readers for some of the lower grades, and 
still much more supplementary reading must be added. The age of one 
reader for the pupil has departed. Pupils of to-day demand four fold 
the reading material that the youth of forty years ago required. Your 
Committee wish to call the attention of the town to the effort now being 
made to have this town unite with a group of towns and have the bene- 
fit of a skilled superintendent. Ex-Sec Dickinson says, "that the 
schools of a town are good or poor according to the quality of the 
supervision." This truth is realized by the most intelligent people of 
our state, and to-day more than eighty-five per cent, of all the pupils in 
the public schools have trained superintendents. The value of these 
superintendents has been settled by experience. It is the great educa- 
tional need of the small towns. Whether the much desired change can 
be made/ and whether your children shall receive the benefit accruing 
from such a change, will depend upon your generosity. 

In conclusion, I wish to gratefully acknowledge my thanks to those 
citizens who have given me an occasional word of encouragement and 
appreciation regarding school work, and to urge you to co-operate in 
the fullest extent with teachers and committee to raise the standard of 
our schools, that we may fit the children for useful positions in life.

REPORT 

-OF THE— 

School Gorqu|it|ee. 



The Committee organized for the year with Mr. Duncan as Chair- 
man, Mr. Carrick as Secretary, and Miss Walker as Superintendent 
The whole number of pupils enrolled is eighty-five. There ha- 
been great irregularity in the attendance during the winter on account 
of illness. Pupils have been absent, however, who could not plead ill- 
ness as an excuse. If parents realized how much children lose who arc 
occasionally absent a day, or even hnlf a day, the attendance would be 
improved. 

There has been only one change in teachers during the year. In 
the North school Miss Rose was succeeded in the fall by Mi89 Mary 
Wheeler. This school was closed three weeks during the Spring term 
on account of scarlet fever in the district. One week was added to the 
Fall term, making thirty-four weeks for the year, instead of thirty-six. 
as in the other schools. Owing to the illness ot the teacher, No. 1 
school was taught three weeks by Miss Walker. 

Some needed changes have been made in text book*. The Arith- 
metics used for many years have long been uusatisfactory. bir it \va- 
difficult to find the right .books to take their places. The old books had 
at last become so worn as to make the purchase of new ones of some 
kind a necessity, and Prince's series, which opportunely appeared in 
1894, was adopted. This, your Committee believe, is the best Arith 
metic published. It has many advantages, one of which is worthy of 
mention in this report, and that is the separation of teachers' and pupils' 
books. All definitions, rules, illustrative examples, and analysis, with 
suggestions for teaching, are found in the former, while the latter con- 
tain only exercises for practice. Most of our text books in Arithmetic 
»eem to leave the teacher out of accou nt. Everything that should he 
taught by the teacher is constantly before the pupil's eyes, and he is

often allowed to memorize definitions and rules with little understand- 
ing of the principles involved. Here may be found the reason why 
such poor results are obtained, considering the amount of time given to 
Arithmetic in most schools. The new books are liked by teachers and 
pupils, and better work in Arithmetic is being done since their intro- 
duction. 

Frye's Complete Geography has been substituted for the book pre- 
viously used. The Primary has been in the schools more than a year. 
The author of these books is noted as an educator and writer alon 
geographical lines, and his books have easily taken the first rank among 
geographical text books. 

The first books if Hyde's series in language and grammar has 
lately been introduced and is being used with good results. It is hoped 
that the higher books may be introduced early in the year. 

There is need of a greater variety of elementary books in United 
States history. There is in each school one set of American History 
Stories, 4 vols. The books are read by the younger pupils, who thus 
gain their first knowledge of history. The children are much interested 
in these books and at stated times they are allowed to tell the stories 
they have read. They are thus early acquiring a love for what is best 
in the history of their country, and are laying a good foundation for a 
more formal study of the subject later on. Such books as Pilgrim and 
Puritan, From Colony to Commonwealth, and others should be added. 

There is need, too, of much in the way of reading. The days 
when pupils were required to read through a long series of school 
readers, with no particular object in view, have gone by. After a child 
has learned to read, why should not his reading in school be made 
helpful to him? With this end in view many towns have a graded 
course in reading arranged in co-ordination with history, literature, 
science and geography, using the regular school readers through only 
the two or three first years of school life. The best literature is none 
too good for the children, and a love for good books is most easilv ac- 
quired in early years 

The needs of the schools are many. Whether they shall be supplied 

depends upon the generosity of the citizens.

REPORT OIF 1 

School Gonimittee 



The whole number of pupils who have attended our schools during* 
the year just closed is 87. The average membership for the year is, 
however, considerably less than that number, owing to the fact that 
many pupils have been in school only a part of the year. The attend- 
ance, as in years past, has been interrupted by sickness. It is still a fact 
to be regretted that parents often allow their children to be absent from 
school for trivial reasons. The loss of a day, or even a half day, may 
affect the child's progress for many days, hinder the progress of his 
class and cause extra work and annoyance to the teacher, who cannot do 
her best work for any, if some are irregular in attendance. 

In the judgment of the committee, good work has been done in the 
schools during the year. All the teachers have made earnest efforts for 
the highest success of their schools. In some respects there has been 
progress. Drawing has been taught in all the schools, with a fair de- 
gree of success. Its introduction necessitated a small outlay for the pur- 
chase of suitable paper and pencils, with a few small models for form 
study. More and larger models are needed. The value of drawing as 
a study in the public schools has long been recognized by educators. 
The following is quoted from a report of Mr. Henry T. Bailey, State 
Agent of Drawing. 

"Industrial drawing is not to be taught in the public schools sin ply 
for the sake of making a show of complying with the law. It is to be 
taught because of its three-fold value: as one of the best studies for 
mental discipline; as a practical language for every day use; and as ;t 
most efficient means for refining the taste. The study of this subject 
should develop all the powers of the pupil. Unless it trains him to use 
his ey> s and hands to better advantage; unless it trains him to think; 
unless it educates his taste, and creates in him a love for that which is 
truest and best, — it has little claim to a place in the public school curri- 
culum, or to the time required for its proper pursuit." 



Annual Report of the School Committee. 19 

There have been few changes in text books. The higher books of 
Hyde's language series were purchased early in the year. Single copies 
oi books on U. S. history and physiology and hygiene have been placed 
in each school. Selections from Hawthorne, the first two books of the 
Seaside and Wayside series of nature readers, and Longfellow's Evan* 
geltne have been provided for reading. 

It is gratifying to be able to report an increased use in the schools 
of books from the public library. 

Through the generosity of citizens two of the schools have lately 
been able to purchase small school libraries. It is hoped that the pupils 
of the other school may also be successful in obtaining money for a 
library. The books selected are all of the best. A faw were chosen for 
their value as reference books. 

Some one has said that a taste for good books is in itself a libera 
education. Too much stress cannot be laid upon the importance of 
training the children in right habits of reading. To that end good 
books and teachers who read and love good books, are essential. 

The registers show an increase in the number of visits made to the 
schools by the parents and others, but there is still much to be hoped 
for in this direction. The schools belong to the people. Should not all 
the citizens have sufficient interest in their welfare to visit them more 
frequently? 

The town has been generous in its appropriation for schools. It 
is the earnest plea of the Committee that the appropriations for the 
coming year may not be lessened.

BEPOBT 

OF THE 

SCttOOL COMMITTEE 



In addition to the school statistics there is little that need be said in 
this report. Changes or additions in the way of text books have been 
few. Copies of Whittier's Snow-bound, and of Stepping Stones to 
Literature have been provided for reading. 

A system of vertical penmanship has recently been adopted for the 
schools. In No. 1 School there has been a marked improvement in the 
penmanship of the younger pupils, who were taught vertical writing 
before the introduction of the new books. 

The committee wish to express their appreciation of the generosity 
of Rev. L. L. Perry in giving prizes to the schools for their collections 
of native woods, and three large pictures for the school rooms. The 
pictures are now being framed without expense to the town, and will 
be hung in the school rooms before the opening of the spring term. 

The thanks of the committee are also due Mr. Charles R. Abell, 
who has, for the past few weeks, given lessons in drawing to the pupils 
of the North school. 

An interesting and profitable teachers' institute, the first in the his- 
tory of the town, was held in May, under the direction of Mr. G. T 
Fletcher of Northampton.

18 Annual Report of the School Committee. 



—OF THE— 



SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 



The School Committee organized at the beginning of the year, with 
C. B. Coit, Chairman; Miss Fannie P. Walker, superintendent; W. R. 
Carrick, secretary and treasurer. 

Your Committee were fortunate in securing teachers of marked 
ability, who have faithfully endeavored to do good work. The pupils 
have been in harmony, and the results obtained are satisfactory. 

The winter term has been somewhat interrupted by sickness in all 
of the schools, especially in the village, which made the average atten- 
dance very low. 

The Committee wish the parents would study the school statistics, 
and, by united efforts, see if the next report will not have a better show- 
ing. The No. 2 schoolhouse having burned, the Committee thought 
best to close the school, so the winter term was in session but nine 
weeks. The time has arrived, in the judgment of your Committee, 
when the town should consider the further consolidation of the schools, 
and, in the building of the new schoolhouse, build with that in view.

Annual Report of jlhe Librarian. 23 



Libpcjricjii's fjepo^t. 



Since the last yearly report, the trustees have had a classified Cata- 
logue made of the books in the library. This seemed, in the main, sat- 
isfactory, but a few errors crept in. Doubtless these would not have 
appeared, if the classifier could have done the work at this library, but 
that would have involved extra expense. There were also omissions, 
some of which were due to the carelessness of your librarian, some to 
the oversight of the classifier. A list of the omissions, and of books re- 
ceived since the catalogues were printed, is found in this report. Pat- 
rons of the library are advised to cut out this leaf and paste it into the 
back of the Catalogue. 

Two books, Romola, by George Eliot, and A day of late, by E. P. 
Roe, were lost in the fire which destroyed the house of Mr. E. T. King. 
They will be replaced when new books are bought. 

It would save the librarian much work and annoyance if all who 
leave their books at Mr. Kelley's store for exchange would observe a 
a few simple rules. If you have no book bag, always leave your book 
tied up in a paper parcel with name on outside. If another book is 
wanted, put a card with at least six numbers just inside first cover. If 
no book is wanted, keep your card. When a book is again wanted, 
send the card to the librarian by mail. It may be sent in the box with 
books, at some risk, however, of being overlooked. Please cross out 
on your cards the numbers of the books you receive. 

The magazines subscribed for by the library for the present year 

are Harper's, Century and New England. The Review of Reviews, 

and the Cosmopolitan are received as gifts. Numbers of the current 

month and that next preceding should be retained only a week. Those 

of earlier date may be kept three weeks.

—OF THE— 



Seh^ool ©orqnqittGG. 



The School Board met March 27, and chose officers. After the 
death of Miss Walker, who for so long- and well had worked in the in- 
terest of the public schools, W. S. Douglass was elected as a member of 
the committee, after which the committee reorganized. 

The number of pupils enrolled is seventy-four. 

The Fall term of No. 2, and the Winter term of No 1 schools, were 
interrupted by whooping cough, which made the average attendance 
somewhat smaller than other terms. 

There have been some books on literature and a few new histories 
bought. The work in history has been very satisfactory, being treated 
in a different manner from the old question and answer method. 

The hand writing, and some of the composition work is worthy of 
mention. 

The new school house, with the furnace heat, tine blackboards and 
commodious cloak rooms, has been fully appreciated by those who have 
attended school, and those who have been visitors. 

We regret the fact that so few names of visitors are chronicled in 
the three registers, and beg for an interest, not alone of parents, but of 
all citizens, in the education of the children of Greenwich. Is there one 
who does not wish to make the standard higher, rather than lower? 

The first aim of a public school should be to produce good charac- 
ter, and fit for good citizenship. The question is how to accomplish 
this, 



Annual Report of the School Committee. 19 

The outside influence in any town does a great deal to help or hind- 
er this work, so we would ask you to take pride in the schools of to- 
day. Let pupils know that the town is interested in their studies and 
behavior. We hope the parents will have a personal knowledge of 
what their children are doing. 

At the annual town meeting, attention will be called to the subject 
of "District Supervision." Perhaps it may be proper to quote from a 
"Circular of Information" sent by the Secretary of State Board: 

"This plan enables towns of low valuation to obtain that skilled 
superintendence which has done so much for the improvement of the 
schools in the larger towns and cities. These towns and cities include 
93.5 per cent, of the whole number of the public schools, and 95.6 per 
cent, of the entire school population of the state. When so large a pro- 
portion of the schools are under professional supervision, it cannot be 
said that such supervision is still an experiment, and that there can be 
conditions at present in any town under which the schools would not be 
benefited by the employment of a superintendent, who gives all his time 
to the business of supervision. 

DUTIES OF THE SUPERINTENDENT. 

1. Planning courses of study. 

2. Selecting and recommending text books, apparatus, etc. 

3. Examining and nominating teachers. 

4. Inspecting the schools. 

5. Guiding the teachers personally in their work and study. 

6. Conducting Teachers' meetings. 

7. And, in general, serving as the professional representative of 
the interests of the schools, and as the executive officer of the school 
commtttee.

W. R. CARRICK Superintendent.

R E PO RT 

—OF 

serieoL 60mmittees. 



The whole number of pupils enrolled on our registers this year just 
closed is seventy-seven. This is not as large a number as has been 
enrolled some years, but we believe the average attendance has been 
enough to make up the difference. The attendance has been better than 
some previous years, as the children have not been victims of any con- 
tagious disease or epidemic. There have, however, been more absences 
recorded than we like to see, and we believe that some might have been 
avoided had the parents been in closer touch with the schools, and 
realized how much it means to the child to be absent from his work, 
even for one half day. He not only loses the definite amount of in- 
struction whieh he would get at that time, but, in a measure, gets out 
of touch with his class, and, when the absence is not absolutely neces- 
sary it is of positive injury to the child in forming his habits for his 
future career. For a child to come to mature years with the idea that 
success can follow anything but the strictest attention to the work in 
hand does not tend to inspire him with the right spirit of manhood, or 
form in him the best qualities of good citizenship. 

We would plead again, as has been done in previous years, that the 
parents and friends will visit the schools oftener, and by personal 
contact become familiar with the work that is being done. For the 
schools to be of the most value to the child, and for the teacher to do 
her best work, we must have the hearty co-operation of the parents. 

Several of our older pupils have left us this year, and are attending 
high school; but their number is more than made good by the little ones 
just beginning. It is a pleasure to watch these little minds as they 
begin to unfold and take on these new responsibilities of school life. 



18 ANNUAL PtEPORT OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE 

During the spring term, it was thought advisable to introduce 
painting in connection with the drawing, and the children were supplied 
with small boxes of water color paints and brushes. They have taken 
much interest in it and many have done surprisingly good work. A 
few have shown marked talent in that direction. 

There have been a few new books added ; the Finch First Reader, 
the fourth grade. of '-'Stepping Stones to Literature," and a few school 
classics for supplementary reading. A bird magazine has been sub- 
scribed for, intended to help the children to know the common birds 
and their habits. We wish the friends, as they visit the schools, would 
examine it from month to month, as we believe it to be a magazine of 
merit ; and one that will prove interesting to the patents as well as the 
children. 

Thermometers and wire door-mats have lately been provided. These 
have long been needed, and the latter will not only serve in keeping- 
much of the mud and sand out or the school room, but will assist the 
teachers in impressing upon the children the habits of neatness and 
carefulness. 

The public library has been of great service to us the past year, 
many of the books being used for reference, while others have been 
very helpful as side reading. The children have been especially inter- 
ested in the new books on nature.

ANNUAL REPORT 

OF THE 

SCHOOL conniTTEE. 



The results of another year in our public schools are gratifying. 
The teachers have been earnest in effort to accomplish as much as pos- 
sible. Some helps to study, not available in previous years, are due to 
the generous aid from the state. 

One of the best traits of a good teacher is to be able to make clear a 
subject, through the art of using a chart or a book, or bringing many 
things from different books, thus making sensible impression on the 
brains of pupils. 

The public library has been a great help to the teachers, and we 
take this opportunity to thank the library trustees for considering such 
need of help. 

We have appreciated very much (he pains taken by the teachers, to 
give as much care as possible to those who probably will not attend 
school in town another year. Whether many take a higher education 
may depend upon how much help and influence they receive from you. 

The following are names of pupils who had the best attendance 
during the year: Lester Edsou, Carrie T. Ed son, Mabel Edson, Clara 
E. Hall, Helen Hall, Dora E. Gam well, Bella Harper, Earl Hamilton, 
Wilfred Nevins, Stephen Walker, Charles Walker, Laura Walker, Zilla 
Gentis, Flora Gentis, Carrie Mosher, Hut b Mosher. 

We ask all in town to do what you can to make the next year of 
school work better than former years. You will notice that our share of 
the income of the school fund is much larger than it has been. "It is due 



ANNUAL REPORT OF THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE 17 

to the addition of $150,000 to the school fund income, — an addition de- 
rived from that excess of income from the securities in the Fitchburg 
railroad securities loan sinking fund, which is denned in Chapter 408, 
Acts of 1893, and which, by the terms of that statute, has to be added to 
the income from the school fund. The excess has amounted to $25,000 
annually for several years. 

Because of the exchange of the Fitchburg Railroad stock in this 
sinking fund for Boston & Maine Railroad bonds, the excess for 1901 
was increased by $150,000. 

The Commissioners call special attention to the temporary nature 
of this increase. Hereafter, because of the withdrawal of the Boston & 
Maine railroad bonds from the sinking fund, and their application else- 
where, the income f rom the school fund will resume its normal magni- 
tude."

ANNUAL REPORT OF 

SCHOOL COMMITTEE. 



To the School Committee of Greenwich: 

I have the honor to submit the following report of the condi- 
tion, work and needs ot the schools. As they have been in ses- 
sion only about five months since my work began, I cannot re- 
port for the entire year. 

The schools in the villages have been so crowded that it 
has not been possible to do as good work as we desire. It 
would add greatly to the efficiency of the work if some means 
could be devised for dividing at least one of these. 

COURSE OF STUDY. 
It is no easy matter to arrange a course of study and adjust 
it to the work of ungraded schools without interfering too much 
with the individuality of a teacher's work. I have thought best 
to place in the hands of the teachers a schedule of the work to 
be done. A brief outline was given them last fall, and I have 
prepared full outlines, which will be placed in the schools as 
soon as copies can be typewritten. I have endeavored to ar- 
range this work so that the child may be introduced to all or- 
dinary branches in the lower grades. In the first grade, the 
pupil, while learning to read, meets all the fundamental pro- 
cesses of Arithmetic, including fractions, and some Language 
and Geography. These principles are gradually expanded and 
developed year after year as the mind of the pupil develops. 



Some grading has been done to simplify the program, and 
changes necessary to fit the schedule will be effected at the 
opening of the next term. 

DRAWING AND MUSIC. 

I have asked the teachers to give one lesson a week in draw- 
ing, and some good work has been accomplished. 

The music, under the direction of Mr. Cox, is progressing 
well, and, considering the short time the work has been going 
on, we must say that the results are very good. For further in- 
formation on this subject we refer you to the report of the super- 
visor of music. 

TEXT BOOKS. 

Several changes have been made in books. When new 
ones are needed, something can be saved by making an ex- 
change, and we think that the new books are better adapted to 
the work of our schools. Nichols' Graded Arithmetics replace 
the Prince books in the lower grades. A large number of topics 
are introduced in the lowest grade, and the work in each topic 
is gradually made more difficult through the grades. Such 
practical subjects as Percentage and Interest are early intro- 
duced, so that those who are obliged to leave school before they 
reach the advanced book, may have a fair knowledge of these 
subjects. These books are arranged on the constant review 
plan. They are the work of a practical teacher, and have been 
tested in his own work before they were published. 

In the last few years, probably more advancement has been 
made in the teaching of Geography than of any other subject. 
We have placed in the schools Tarr and McMurray's three 
book series of Geographies In place of Frye's, Professors 
Mc Murray and Tarr are acknowledged leaders in this forward 
movement, and their books are endorsed by nearly all Superin- 
tendents and teachers. We have also purchased the Hobbs 
number sticks for first and seeorjd grade work in Arithmetic, 



15 

The cost of text books and supplies is quite an item in the 
expense of our schools, and necessitates constant watchfulness as 
to their use. Children should be taught at home and at school 
that care in the use of property is a large factor in the economy 
which all should practise, and some must of necessity exercise. 

ATTENDANCE. 

On the whole, the attendance so far, has not been satisfac- 
tory. An epidemic of mumps is partially accountable for this. 
We hope each parent will remember that even a few days ab- 
sence cannot fail to be disadvantageous to the work of the 
school, and will encourage his children to make the most of 
their opportunities, both for their own good and the future wel- 
fare of the state. 

TEACHERS' MEETINGS. 

A number of teachers meetings have been held, and good 
results of these seem to be manifest in improved methods of 
teaching, and increased interest and enthusiasm for their work. 
At these meetings I have outlined the work to be taught in the 
different subjects and grades, and discussed means and methods 
for carrying it out. I have been much gratified by the earnest-^ 
ness with which the teachers have adopted these suggestions. 

In November, the teachers of the entire district met at Mill- 
ington for a talk on first grade Reading by Mr. J. S. Cooley of 
Worcester, and in December an Institute, under the auspices of 
the State Board of Education, was held at North Dana. Both 
of these meetings were very interesting and helpful. 

VISITING DAYS. 

As is customary, teachers have been allowed one day a term 
for visiting and observing the work of other schools. In my 
opinion this is an excellent plan, provided the time given is 
well spent, With a view to a better use of this time for visiting, 
some regulations have been made in regard to the matter which 
I briefly explain: 



i6 

Teachers are all required to visit one day each term. 

The day for visiting is arranged by the Superintendent. 

Each teacher is given the choice of certain schools to visit, 
and is expected to spend the day in some of these. 

A report of each visit, with remarks upon the strong and 
weak points of the schools visited, and a statement of the bene- 
fits derived is required to be made to the Superintendent. 

TEACHERS. 

The cordiality of my relations with the teachers has been a 
source of gratification to me. I believe that every one of them 
has a sincere interest in the welfare and advancement of the 
pupils over whom she is placed, and has tried faithfully to do 
the best possible for them, and if there are faults they must not 
be attributed to lack of good intentions. On the whole the work 
has been good, and we hope for continued progress in the 
future. 

I desire to give formal expre'sion of my thanks for the co- 
operation of teachers, and the cordial support of committee and 
people that have been of so much assistance to me In my work 
of superintending. 

Respectfully, 

E. L. ADAMS.

Good schools are worth paying every dollar we can afford. 
No one is ever heard saying he regrets any knowledge of books 
he may have had, but the universal cry is, "I wish I could 
have had better opportunities." The school only takes part 
with other influences, those of home and neighborhood. 

Education is of two kinds, good and bad. Education that 
cultivates and uplifts, makes good homes, and good homes 
make good neighborhoods. 

School census shows one hundred and eight children be- 
tween the ages of five and fifteen. The hope of the town may 
be largely in these.

The School Committee organized March n, with C. B. Coit 
as chairman. Shortly after the Greenwich committee met the 
several committees of Dana, Prescott and New Salem, and or- 
ganized into a district for the purpose of electing a superintend- 
ent. Three of four candidates appeared, or sent applications. 
A choice was made of B. B. Adams, formerly High school Prin- 
cipal in New Salem, whose personal inspection and oversight 
of our schools is showing marked results, One aim is, to bring 
the work, as much as possible, into a graded system. Along 
this line, as in other departments of the work, we are sure, that 
after better acquaintance with circumstances, character and dis- 
positions, there will be more rapid progress and better results 
obtained. 

A statement in regard to the cost of supervision may not be 
out of place at this time. Undoubtedly most of you understand 
the matter. Possibly some have not a clear comprehension. 
The four towns pay $1500 per year. The share of this town is 
three twenty-firsts of that amount, namely $214.26. The state 
refunds one-half, leaving actual cost $107.13. Then the state 
gives to the district $500. Of this we receive $71.40, which 
helps in paying for teaching. Five-sixths of the $214.26 re- 
turns to us.

REPORT OF 

SUPERVISOR OF MUSIC. 



To Mr. E. L. Adams, Superintendent of Schools: 

My Dear Sir; It gives me pleasure to submit this, my 
first report of music in the public schools of Greenwich and 
Greenwich Village. 

This report must be necessarily short, for we only began 
music the 23d of September, 1902, and have had but fourteen 
weeks to get a start, as you might say. But in that short space 
of time we have accomplished a good deal. We have found a 
most interested lot of pupils under the instruction of competent, 
interested teachers, so that the work left to do through the 
week has been fully carried out. This means a great deal for 
the success of music in the public schools. Of the seventy 
scholars in the schools, only about ten had ever had music 
taught before, which meant that we had to start at the very be- 
ginning. 

As the older scholars progressed more rapidly than the 
younger ones, we were obliged to divide the schools into two 
classes, the older ones using the "Normal Chart," series one, 
combining tune and time, in the keys of C. G. and D. They 
are not only able to sing these exercises from the chart, but to 
do dictation work on the board covering anything we have had. 

The lower grade is doing interval work, and will begin 
chart work by the beginning of the Spring term. 



21 

Albert B. Winship, editor of the Journal of Education, 
says: "What the public school wants of singing as a branch of 
instruction, is the grandest possible teaching of the art intellec- 
tually and fervently, as a means of providing the most manhood 
and womanhood. Singing is to be taught the whole child. His 
mental being, physically, industrially, morally, is to be vibrant 
with help, elasticity, energy and cheerfulness. 

These things being so, singing is as important a subject 
for the school room as any other branch; and unlike most other 
branches, it needs to be taught from the lowest primary grade 
to the highest, in the ungraded as well as in the graded 
schools . 

It is needed for patriotism, for morality, for health, and to 
make discipline lighter, school attendance more regular, school 
management easier, study more interesting, recitation more 
spirited. 

What the eye is to the face, what fervency is to the voice, 
singing is to the school." 

Very respectfully, 
G. WARREN COX, Supervisor of Music.

ANNUAL REPORT 

—OF THE— 

^SCHOOL COMMITTEE^ 



While there is much that is satisfactory in what has been 
accomplished in school work since September 1903, all must 
see that the frequent change in the teaching force has been det- 
rimental to rapid progress. 

It seems wise to contemplate furnishing a place for a fourth 
teacher, in order to secure best grade of work. There is more 
money, this coming year, for your committee to expend. How 
to make the choice of ways, in which to do this, will be a prob- 
lem. Some have suggested a special teacher in drawing. 

We have heard the teachers speak of the generous supply 
of books and helps in our school rooms. A few years ago, there 
was constant complaint that best work could not be done, be- 
cause there was lack of material. 

The design of the State Board, is not to make cheaper, but 
better schools, and we ought to feel the greatest respect for the 
men who so generously are planning for the small towns. 

Remarks are sometimes made about the increased expense 
of education, and comparisons drawn between these and former 
times. Was the cost of other things as much then as now 5 Did 
labor of any kind demand as large pay? 



15 



Times have changed, and to-day we can find men who were 
taught manual training in the common schools, and have gone 
through scientific courses in higher schools, and now are com- 
manding large salaries, also women who have been trained for 
special work, and are to-day receiving salaries that would have 
scared the far off, old time folks. 

More than these, are the hundreds in our state, who have 
been helped to live broad and useful lives. As improvement 
along all educational lines is marked, up to the highest schools, 
many must be discarded, as teachers for our children, who 
once might have been accepted, the demand for skilled labor 
being very much greater. 

We thoroughly believe that more than all your committee 
can do, may be done by the parent cultivating in his child a 
spirit of content with the school and teachec, and a determina- 
tion to do his best during school hours. 

There are one hundred and five children between school 
ages. 

Following is a list of names of pupils who have been twelve 
consecutive weeks without absent or tardy marks: 

Clara Mason, Lester Mason, Herbert Stack, Howard John- 
son, Evelyn Hall, Helen Hall, Lester Hall, Laurence King, 
Laura Walker, Arlon Moore, Mamie Januszajtis, Annie Han- 
son, Sammie Thrasher, Nellie Hanson, Roxie Powers, Mabel 
Short, Agloria Saverance, Annie Edson, Fannie Edson. 

Very respeclfully,

SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT, 



To the School Committee of Greenwich: 

Gentlemen: 

I herewith submit to you, and through you to the citizens 
of the town, my report of the conditions, work and needs of the 
public schools of Greenwich. 

This is a report of my five months of service, and the 
second in the series of Superintendent's reports. 

The first problem presenting itself when I began my work 
in September was that of classification in the schools. I found 
the teachers trying to apply the course of study provided last 
year. In each of the schools I found an abundant number of 
classes. I have reduced the number of classes as much as 
possible without detriment to the pupils, that more efficient work 
might be done and valuable time saved. In some instances 
classes have been consolidated. Before the close of another 
school year we hope to be fully adjusted to the course of study 
as it appears in our schools. 

It is impossible, and not always wise, to attempt distinctly 
to grade such schools as are in Greenwich, when the whole 
school occupies one room. If such a course were attempted, it 
would result with serious detriment to the child. Grading in 
Greenwich will be a matter of slow growth. There should be 
a course of study as we have already, but it should be used as a 
standard for all work done in the several grades. I will give 
one reason why distinct grading cannot be done in Greenwich 
as the schools are situated today. For years Mary, for instance, 



17 



has recited reading and language in one class; arithmetic and 
history in another class, and geography in still another class, 
which under a careful teacher is wise if it be adapted to the 
mental condition of Mary, for the language cells in her brain 
may not be so fully developed as are her mathematical and his- 
torical cells, and to attempt to put her in the same class in 
everything is to hinder in her case the development of the 
language cellular tissue of his brain. If Ma.ry had spent all of 
her school life in a graded school, a little of this one sided 
development might have been overcome. 

A prominent educator has wisely said that "we are all born 
short in some one or more faculties." Some children are "born 
short" in mathematics; some in history and others in language. 
It is to such people that the rural school is an advantage. Some 
day the cloud that obscures that part of his brain will lift. I 
have seen instances of this many times. 

The school at the Plain ought to be divided into two rooms 
to get the best results. It is almost impossible to do satisfactory 
work of a modern nature in a school with so many classes and 
so many pupils as are found in this school. Only a teacher of 
good physical strength and courage can stand the pressure of 
work. 

RUI.ES AND regulations. 

I find that work can be done more economically and to 
better advantage if certain rules or principles govern said work, 
therefore I submit for the benefit of all concerned a few rules I 
find necessary for guidance in our school work. 

HOURS. 

The morning session of all schools shall begin at 9 A. m., 
and close at 12 m., with a recess of 15 minutes at 10.30. The 
afternoon session shall begin at 1 p. m., and continue until 4 
p. m., with a recess at 2.30 p. m. of fifteen minutes. 

Primary children may be excused at the afternoon recess. 

Teachers may detain pupils above the third grade, at the 



i8 



close of the afternoon session, for the purpose of discipline or 
for making up lessons, for a time not exceeding 30 minutes. 

CARE OF PROPERTY. 

Teachers shall be accountable for the care of all apparatus, 
books, and school property belonging to the town contained in 
their rooms. 

ATTENDANCE OF TEACHERS. 

Each school room shall be opened and the teacher present 
at least fifteen minutes before the opening of each session. 

OPENING EXERCISES. 

The morning session shall be opened with the reading of 
the scriptures without written note or oral comment; and the use 
of the Ivord's Prayer. 

No pupil shall be allowed to enter the room during the 
devotional exercises. 

ORDER OF EXERCISES. 
Teachers shall be required to keep a program and plan of 
seats accessible to pupils and visitors. Recitations shall be 
conducted according to this schedule. 

EXCUSES. 

Teachers shall require a written excuse for every absence, 
tardiness or dismission. 

No pupil shall be excused from school for the purpose of 
taking private lessons. 

SUSPENSION. 

A teacher may temporarily suspend a pupil for opposition 
to authority or habitual disregard of rules. She shall at once 
report the same to the Superintendent of schools, and to the 
parent or guardian. The Superintendent may restore the pupil 
or report him to the Committee for final action. 

TRANSFERS. 

No pupil shall be transferred to a school in a district other 
than the one in which he resides without the consent of the 
Superintendent or Committee. 

No pupil shall be transferred from one class to another 



19 

without the consent of the Superintendent. 

Every child leaving for another school shall be given a 
discharge card, and one shall be sent to the Superintendent of 
schools. 

RESPONSIBILITY FOR GROUNDS. 

The teacher shall be responsible to the Committee for the 
general condition of the school house and its appurtenances, and 
shall report to them at once any damage done, with necessary 
information concerning the same. 

ADMISSION TO SCHOOLS. 

No pupil shall be admitted to the lowest class except during 
the first two weeks of the school year, unless he shall have 
attended school before, or be over eight years of age. No child 
under five shall be admitted. 

TEACHERS' ABSENCE. 

Whenever a teacher is absent from school, immediate notice 
must be sent to the Superintendent of schools. 

CONTAGIOUS DISEASES, CHAP. 64, LAWS OF 1885, 

No pupil shall be allowed to attend the public schools while 
any member of the household to which such pupil belongs is 
sick of small-pox, diphtheria, or scarlet fever, or during a period 
of two weeks after the death, recovery, or removal of such sick 
persons; except in case of measles, in which case three days 
shall have elapsed after death, recovery or removal, and any 
pupil coining from such household shall be required to present 
to the teacher of the school the pupil desires to attend a certifi- 
cate from the attending physician, or Board of Health, of the 
facts necessary to entitle him to admission in accordance with 
this regulation. 

Teachers shall have authority to exclude temporarily pupils 

who may be afflicted by other diseases or eruptions of a doubtful 

character, and all such cases shall be reported promptly to the 

Superintendent of schools. 

discipline. 
Teachers shall aim at such discipline in their schools as is 
exercised by a kind, wise, judicious parent of a family, avoiding 
corporal punishment in instances where other measures would 
suit the case. 



20 



In no case shall the teacher resort to provoking or harsh 
language. Corporal punishment ma} T be inflicted, to pupils 
when other measures fail to secure order and obedience. 

Teachers shall report on their monthly report card all 
instances of corporal punishment inflicted, the name and age of 
the pupil, reason for infliction, and the manner and amount of 
said punishment. 

VISITATION. 

For the purpose of observing modes of discipline and in- 
struction, teachers may visit schools two days each year, at such 
times as may be arranged between them and the Superintendent. 

DUTIES OF JANITORS. 

Janitors, during term time, shall keep the school rooms, 
halls, school furniture, school yards and out buildings clean and 
neat. They shall sweep the floor and dust the furniture at least 
twice a week, and shall dust the woodwork as often as necessaty 
to keep the same neat and tidy, and remove the ashes from the 
stoves. 

The teachers shall have charge of the flags, see that they 
are out at the proper time, take them in at the close of the 
session and when the weather is stormy or windy. 

During the cold season they shall maintain fires sufficient 
to keep the temperature as nearly 68 degrees F. as possible. 

Janitors are directly under the control of the Superinten- 
dent; they must be courteous and obliging to teachers at all 
times. 

ECONOMY. 

The financial condition of the town makes it necessary 
that the greatest care be exercised in the expenditure of the 
school appropriation. The town should not be asked to raise 
more than is necessary to provide for the schools in a com- 
fortable manner and keep them in the front rank of progress. 
In this, as in any other business, a balance should if possible 
occur at the end of the year. We should spend just so much 



21 



as, and no more than, is required to make our schools up to 
date, and give the children of the town a chance to have as 
good an education as any children in the State. 

It is not economy to hire teachers without the Normal 
training which the State considers important enough to furnish 
at an enormous expense; or at least teachers with a natural 
talent for teaching, with a foundation beneath of a broad 
education. Teachers of this variety view life in a broad and 
generous manner; are not cramped in their views, and are 
a greater uplifting force to the children than can be measured 
in dollars and cents. This is the kind of teachers necessary 
for rural schools especally, and we must place the salaries at 
a figure that will secure them. The force of this has been felt 
in Greeuwich this year. At the North school we had a model 
teacher, but Stoneham paid her more money, and her excellent 
services had to be Tost to us. At the Plain we had another rare 
teacher, but Franklin could pay her more money and give her a 
school with but two grades and of course she left us, but the 
influence of these teachers upon their schools "lives after 
them," and will be felt by the pupils for time indefinite. If it 
could be arranged so that valuable teachers could be retained, 
it would surely be economy, for their value to the pupils is not 
to be measured commercially. 

We have had six different teachers for our three schools 
this year. 

I raise the question if it is economy to maintain cheap jan- 
itor service. 

teachers' meetings. 

As there are but three teachers in Greenwich, I can give 
them all needed help and suggestions regarding their work at 
visitation. 

Frequent meetings would not meet their individual needs, 
and would incur a needless expense of time, money and travel 
to the teacher. 



22 . 

All teachers, like other people, are not constituted alike, 
and the aid of a Superintendent, wisely directed to assist the 
particular needs of the individual teacher, is of vastly more 
importance to that teacher. If the teaching force were larger, 
time would have to be economized by calling all teachers 
together. 

An Institute, which was very helpful to the teachers, was 
held in North Dana, November 12th. Agents Fletcher, Mac- 
Donald and Sargent, also Miss Love joy, spoke ably on topics 
instructive. 

Each teacher has been provided with a plan book, in which 
she records daily her plan of work in her several classes and 
what she has accomplished. She also makes note of any matter 
she wishes advice upon. On my visits I can from this record 
see just what has been done; answer her questions, and give 
any advice or suggestions necessary. It saves the teacher's 
time and that of the Superintendent. 

PROMOTIONS. 

The daily or oral work of the pupil counts three-fifths or 
60 per cent., of the year's average. The written work counts 
two-fifths, or 40 per cent. That is, the best eight weeks' in 
each term counts one-fifth each; the mid-year examination one- 
fifth, and the final test in June one-fifth. A general average of 
70 per cent, must be attained to enable the pupil to be promoted. 
These averages apply above the fourth grade. 

SPELLING. 

There is a common belief among people that the spelling is 
not so good as it used to be. I find that is true in the upper 
classes in my district. One reason I have heard given is, that 
in teaching reading by the word method, the pupils acquire the 
habit of seeing the word as a whole, without recognizing its 
parts. This trouble may be easily overcome by giving the pu- 
pils more practice in naming the letters in the word after look- 
ing at it closely a short time. This kind of drill, together with 



23 

care in copying accurately, and frequent lessons in oral spelling 
are productive of better results in spelling. The work must be 
a continuous and persistent effort throughout the school life 
of the child. Teachers have too much written spelling in th e 
upper grades. 

DRAWING AND MUSIC. 

The Weaver system, an individual method, is being taught 
under the direction of our skilled Supervisor of Music, Miss 
Amsden. During her short time spent with us, rapid and sure 
progress has been made. I refer you to her report. 

I hope the time is near when we can unite with the other 
towns, and have a special teacher in drawing. 

SCHOOL-ROOM ADORNMENT. 

Some one has fitly said that "There should be interest and 
individuality to the room where the children of an impression- 
able age are gathered." If that be true, the decorations should 
be educational, and the pictures should be those which furnish 
information of things suitable for the child. They should be an 
inspiration, and contain high thoughts; some common things 
well expressed. They should furnish enjoyment for the mind 
of the child. Have reprints of pictures that have moved the 
hearts of men. The}' are within the means of every one. 
Teachers are giving more attention to the appearance of their 
school room walls, but with some teachers there is chance for 
vast improvement along this line. 

OPPORTUNITIES FOR IMPROVEMENT AMONG THE TEACHERS. 

Being located so far from an opportunity of attending the 
lectures of the Twentieth Century Club, and many other valua- 
ble sources of mental improvement, the faithful teacher asks 
herself what she may do to improve herself and keep on a plane 
with her more fortunate sisters located in the midst of all the 
great opportunities for self culture and improvement, as she is 
working for the children and for whatever will develop and lift 
them to a higher plane and a broader view of life. 



24 

I would suggest more professional reading. Read not only 
educational publications, but be on friendly terms with the lib- 
rary, for the public library and the public schools are parts of 
one great whole. There should be a closer relation between 
the public library and the public school teacher and pupils. We 
can never have a community that will fully appreciate books un- 
til our schools teach how to use them, and where and how they 
may be obtained. 

No teacher should ask or expect to teach in Greenwich 
who is not willing to put forth every effort to know the BEST, and 
to keep pace with the rapid progress of the times. An English 
philosopher once said " We know diseases of stoppings and suf- 
focations are the most dangerous in the body; and it is not much 
otherwise with the mind." Teachers afflicted with such stop- 
pings or suffocations of the mind need not apply in Greenwich. 
It is the duty of our teachers by thought, study, reading, inter- 
change of ideas, and by all possible means within their power 
to put themselves upon the plane of leadership in every sense 
of the word. 

STATE AID. 

Having been asked several times concerning the Mass. 
school fund and State Aid, I think it well to answer some of the 
questions at this time, so that "he who runs may read." 

The Mass. School Fund from which the income is derived, 
was established by an act of the legislature in 1834 which pro- 
vided that all moneys in the treasury derived from the sale of 
lands in Maine and from claims of the State 011 the government 
of theU. S. for military services and not otherwise appropriated, 
together with 50 per cent of all moneys thereafter to be received 
from the sale of lands in Maine, shall be appropriated to consti- 
tute a permanent fund for the aid and encouragement of com- 
mon schools, provided that said fund shall not exceed $1,000,000. 

In 1854 the fund was increased to $1,500,000. In 1859 pro- 
vision was made for indefinite enlargement. In 1861 the in- 
crease of the fund was limited by providing that the addition 



25 

thereto of sums received from the sales of public lands should 
cease as soon as the principal of the fund should reach $2,000,000. 
In 1882 $700,000 was added. In 1890 $700,000 was added and 
in 1894 the principal was fixed at $5,000,000 to be accumulated 
by the addition of $100,000 annually from the proceeds of the 
State tax. The amount of the fund Jan. 1902 was $4,470,548.14. 

By the laws of 1903, Chap. 41 R. L,., most towns whose val- 
uation is less than $2,500,000, get nearly double the amount, 
and a few towns get double the amount received under the for- 
mer law. 

The money received must be spent for school purposes, and 
an account of the way it is spent must be sent to the Secretary 
of the State Board of Education. Otherwise the allowances may 
be withheld. 

The purpose of the law is to improve the schools, not 
to lessen local taxation, and the law is so arranged that if a Town 
raises less money for schools than it has in the past, it will re- 
ceive less money from the state fund. The more a town raises 
itself, the more it will get from the state school fund. This 
money is received Jan. 25th. 

By the former law Greenwich received $544.76. By the 
new law she^ receives $1,097.84, more than double the sum 
received before. We get $500 on our valuation, and $597.84 
on ratios. If our ratio is less next year, of course our State 
aid is much less. I^et us see to it that our ratios are kept up. 

I feel that a little of this extra money should be expended 
to increase the salaries of at least the teachers in our largest 
schools. 

Here is a chance to increase the efficiency of our janitor 
service, and an opportunity for special instruction in drawing. 

SCHOOL HOUSES. 

The houses at the Plain and Village are in excellent repair. 
Some substantial filling must be put in front of the steps at the 
Village school, and the steps at the Plain school need some 
filling placed about them. 



26 



CONCLUSION. 

In closing, I wish to thank the teachers, who have so 
cheerfully worked with me for the improvement of the schools- 
I thank the Committee, who have so cheerfully and heartily 
supported me in my work for that which has been attempted for 
the highest and best interests of the public schools. 
Respectfully submitted, 
W. D. DAVIS, 

Superintendent of Schools.

REPORT OF 

SUPERVISOR OF MUSIC. 



To the Superintendent and School Board: 

Having been in Greenwich schools only five times, I shall 
not find much upon which to report, but I will explain brief!}- 
the method which I am teaching. I have studied other meth- 
ods, and have visited schools where mu§ic was being taught un- 
der various systems, but the finest results I've seen were from 
schools in which the Weaver Method was taught. 

The basis of this entire system is the child's independence. 
Everything is done to encourage this, and nothing to destroy 
it. Each child stands and sings alone; if he can, he sings his 
exercise correctly, if he cannot, he fails, and from these failures 
he grows strong, for he learns that no one is standing ready to 
help him over the hard place. By means of this individual sing- 
ing, the teacher finds out where each child is weak, and imme- 
diately endeavors to teach the child what he does not know. 
I have found a good spirit in the Greenwich schools, and there 
is not a child in town who hesitates to stand and sing the ex- 
ercises which has been given him. Very few of the pupils can 
sing, individually, the tones of the major scale correctly. This 
of course, is due to the fact that the weak ones have always 
leaned upon the strong ones in chorus singing. 

The two elements of music, time and tune, are taught pure- 
ly by imitation. All children, being imitators naturally, learn 



3o 

everything from hearing and seeing others do, so in music they 
learn from hearing and by imitating. 

In the first three grades no books or charts are used. A 
large part of the work is from the blackboard. Thus the child 
sees an exercise only once, he reads it at sight and never sings 
it over and over until he has learned it by ear. In the grades 
above the third, any good book may be used in connection with 
the Individual Sight Singing Exercises. 

It Would please me very much if the parents and friends of 
the children would go into school and see the progress made in 
music during the year. 

Respectfully, 

S. MAUDE AMSDEN. 

January 29, 1904.

AUDITOR'S REPORT. 



I have audited the accounts of the Treasurer for the year 
ending March ist, 1904, and by examination of his vouchers, 
and comparison with the accounts of the other officers upon 
whose orders the several payments have been paid, I find the 
Treasurer's account correct. The amount of his cash balance 
is supported by thirteen hundred, seventy-three dollars and 
eight}* four cents, (1,373.84) in hand, and he holds nine«hund- 
red ninety-nine dollars and twenty cents, (999.20) to the credit 
of the Cemetery Trust Fund, and he holds five hundred and rive 
dollars and eighty-four cents to the credit of the Rebecca Spoon- 
er Library Fund. I recommend that the Treasurer require all 
orders drawn on him to be endorsed by the pa}'ee therein named 
before payment. 

Respectfully submitted. 

THOMAS H. DUNHAM, Auditor.

SECRETARY'S REPORT. 



The number of children in town between the ages of five 
and fifteen, on the first of September, was 94. 

Perhaps the school attendance during the year has been a 
little more regular than some other years. Nothing of epidem- 
ic nature has interrupted. 

The Number 1 register for the Fall and Winter terms is not 
available at this time, so the Roll of Honor may not be quite 
complete. The following names are of those who have not been 
absent nor tardy for one or more terms: Laura Walker, three 
terms, Richard Johnston, Harold Johnston, Lawrence King, 
Mildred Nevins, Lucille Cadwell, Annie Hanson, Nellie Han- 
son, Lowell Parker, Maurice Schermerhorn, two terms; Samuel 
Thresher, Sophia Walker, Kenneth Clifford, Ila Miller, Paul 
Walker, Raymond Walker, one term. 

We have eleven High School pupils.

SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 



To the School Committee of Greenwich: 

The first annual report of the superintendent of schools is 
herewith submitted. It is the third of this department under 
district supervision. A report of the Supervisor of music and 
drawing, a school calendar, and a table of statistics is append- 
ed. These are valuable for reference, and furnish such informa- 
tion as is likely to be sought by parents and others interested in 
the schools. 

Three schools, the same number as formerly, have been 
maintained this year, and the same policy of transportation has 
been pursued. Miss Hannah Clifford, who taught the Village 
school so acceptedly last year, was welcomed back again, but 
each of the other schools opened with a new teacher. Just be- 
fore the opening of the schools in the fall, both the Supervisor 
of Music and the Supervisor of Drawing resigned. It was then 
decided to place both of these subjects in charge of a single su- 
pervisor, and in October, Miss Helen W. Traver of Hartford, 
was appointed to the position. But in January, upon receiving 
a most unexpected opportunity for study abroad, she "asked to 
be relieved for the remainder of the year, and Mrs. Lucy A. 
Gatchell was selected to substitute during her absence. 

Your superintendent believes it is his duty to know of the 
work in every school and in all classes, for his business is to 
supervise all the work in every department. The teachers 
have co-operated most heartily in assisting him to keep in touch 
with the work, and all have labored faithfully and in entire sym- 



X9 

pathy with the new administration. Few short calls have been 
made but visits of a reasonable length seem to be more profitable 
though they be less frequent. In the visits we have endeavored 
to observe carefully the methods of each teacher; to examine the 
work done, or expected to be done by the pupil; to estimate 
justly the general and special results secured; and to note the 
failure to secure the expected or desired results. Only by a 
thorough understanding of the work each teacher is doing can a 
superintendent have that knowledge which will enable him to be 
most helpful to the teacher; and only by a just and generous ap- 
preciation of the faithful and conscientious work done by both 
teacher and pupil can he come into those cordial and sympathetic 
relations with the schools which are among the most helpful and 
inspiring influences in the school room. The iegister is exam- 
ined and absences noted. When these absences are frequent, 
inquiry is made and an explanation is asked for. The discipline 
is observed, suggestions in regard to school management and 
attendance are made, and attention is called to approved methods 
of teaching and to how the teaching may be most effective. 

It has been urged upon the attention of the committee and 
teachers that the superintendent be notified whenever a school 
be not in session upon a regular school day; also whenever there 
may be a session upon Saturday or other holiday. In view of 
the rights of the other towns in the district the necessity of such 
a regulation is apparent. 

In the conduct of the schools we have tried to utilize what- 
ever of good there may be in material, means and method, and 
while avoiding startling changes, to work gradually towards a 
high and uniform standard. In this way, it is hoped, even 
radical reforms may be wrought while steady advancement is 
made. Other changes will be suggested as occasion may re- 
quire and experience demonstrate their usefulness. Real pro- 
gress in education is of slow growth, and time is a very impor- 
tant factor. 

The improvement in your schools during the time I have 



20 

been connected with them has been along old-fashioned lines, 
for while there has been no change in the time schedule of 
studies, more emphasis has been placed upon the ''three r's." 
The same law that requires the teaching of reading, writing and 
arithmetic requires also that instruction shall be given in draw- 
ing, but the nature of the subject demands the care of a special 
supervisor. The chief aim and duty is to lead the children to 
see the beautiful around them, to help them to appreciate it, 
and to encourage them to make for themselves a world beautiful 
in a world of facts. Color, form and arrangement are subjects 
on which much time can be spent and from which much can be 
learned. With a supervisor of music who is qualified to do 
this work also, excellent results in both subjects are secured at 
a nominal cost. 

Unlike the work in drawing, the school committee may, or 
may not require instruction in vocal music, but there is a great 
deal of musical ability among the children in our schools, and it 
has been surprising to see how readily and gladly they have en- 
tered into this work with the supervisor. She is using success- 
fully the same methods in an adjoining town, where she has es- 
tablished the work upon an excellent basis, and is showing re- 
markable results. The results thus far in our schools are all 
that could be expeeted. 

In order to determine intelligently what instruction shall be 
given to all the ehildren at public expense it is necessary to con- 
sider the purpose of the public schools and the reason for their 
existence. Schools for the children of all the people are neces- 
sary for the welfare, if not for the continued existence of a 
government by the people, and it is for this reason that they are 
supported at public expense. It is for the protection of the 
state that compulsory attendance laws are enacted. The schools 
are state institutions. The state commands that they be sup- 
ported. It requires the town authorities to provide them with 
competent teachers, and the teachers with suitable means of 
teaching; and it also requires all children of school age to go 



21 

regularly to school- All the children must attend, under com- 
pulsion if necessary, for a sufficient time to acquire the rudi- 
ments of good citizenship, and the subjects and methods of in- 
struction must be such as to guarantee more successes than 
failures in the process. We must prepare the children of to-day 
for citizenship; not by casting aside the traditions of our public 
schools, but rather by fostering all that is good in them and by 
the extension to all the schools of the best to be found in the 
most effective schools, as the teachers are prepared to assume 
the added responsibilities. In order to prepare our youth for 
citizenship they must be taught not less arithmetic but more, 
and it must be better taught. Our young men and women must 
be better penmen, and must read more intelligently. But the 
work of the schools must not stop here. It must be so broadened 
as to include moral and physical development as well as the 
higher intellectual discipline that has been conferred formerly in 
none but the best schools. The true test of teaching is the 
desire and power manifested in the pupil. Our teachers are 
conscientiously applying themselves to the practical application 
in daily instruction of some of the highest ideals of the best 
teachers. Our schools can only succeed, and can only justify 
themselves before an intelligent public, through the measurable 
success of these earnest efforts. The good of the school demands 
that there should be a high, but attainable standard. There 
must be no retrograde movement and with a common purpose, 
with unity of action, theie need be none. The desire for the 
best possible for all should end in its attainment. 

The policy which has been pursued by your board of grant- 
ing to the teachers at different times throughout the year a day 
for visiting other schools, is commendable, and may be produc- 
tive of much real benefit to our schools. It has been thought 
by some that these days are holidays. They should be days of 
hard and conscientious work on the part of the teachers. The 
visits should not be made indiscriminately, nor for the purpose 
of a social call upon some friend and co-worker. The day 



22 

should be taken during the first half of the term, so that there 
may appear in the subsequent work the special benefit that the 
school derives, and the superintendent should always be con- 
sulted regarding time and place. The teachers have been 
expected to render to the superintendent an account of their 
visits in accordance with a printed form that is given them. A 
portion of the form is as follows: 

6. Exercises conducted, time spent in each? State fully 
what was done while you were in the room. 

7. What especially interested you? 

8. What did y r ou see which you think it would be well to 
introduce into your own work ? 

9. What did you see which you would avoid? 

10. To what extent were you benefited by visiting and in 
what ways ? 

It can readily be seen that these reports may be of great 

help to the visiting teacher. Extracts from those on file will be 

of interest as showing their character. 

"I saw the need as never before of care in conducting the 
reading in my own classes." 

"I came back more than ever determined to have good 
order." 

"I saw nothing to avoid." 

"I gained ideas as to busy work." 

"I was benefited chiefly by watching throughout the day 
two systematic teachers." 

"I had grown careless. I hope this time I can remember 
and profit." 

In dispensing supplies the exercise of a wise forethought is 
imperative. Whatever is needed should be at hand, with the 
register, upon the first morning of the term. The teachers have 
been requested to transmit at the close of each term a requisi- 
tion for such books and supplies as may be needed for the next 
term. Besides reducing the number of requisitions to the 
minimum, much of the annoyance due to frequent applications 
and the inconvenience of sending often to distant schools may 
thus be avoided. 



When we consider the inexperience and lack of training of 
many teachers, and how difficult a task it necessarily must be to 
manage and keep in proper condition foi successful study and 
school work children of such various dispositions and habits, 
many of them but little accustomed to wholesome discipline at 
home, it is truly surprising that so little friction has occurred in 
the discipline of the schools. This department of school work 
requires rare tact and great wisdom, and fortunate are they who 
possess the qualities of mind and heart that adapt them to so 
important a trust. The teacher who is a poor disciplinaria 
cannot be a first-class instructor, for that happy relation which 
exists between teacher and pupil, in a well managed school is 
most favorable for the teacher to impart, and for the pupil to 
receive profitable instruction. Those teachers succeed best in 
discipline whose bearing before their pupils is quiet and self- 
possessed; who set a good example of earnest industry, cheer- 
fulness and well-tempered enthusiasm; who are reasonable in 
their requirements, prudently commending well doing, and 
cautiously reproving when needed; and who have a sympathy 
with all the conditions of childhood. Just in so far as the town 
i sable to secure permanency in the teaching force the benefits 
derived from the work of the superintendent will be continuous. 
The zeal with which your teachers, in general, have sought to 
apply the advice and suggestions given them has rendered his 
work pleasant. 

In closing, I desire to thank the citizens and committee for 
their most cordial reception when I began my work, and for 
their hearty support at all times. I can speak in no uncertain 
terms of the inspiration and strength I have received from work- 
ing with those who have dealt with my faults so leniently, and 
whose advice and judgment I have felt so free to ask at all 
times. 

Respectfully submitted,

REPORT 

—OF THE— 

SUPERVISOR OF MUSIC AND 

DRAWING. 



To the Superintendent of Schools: 

I herewith submit the following report of the work done in 
music and drawing under my supervision in the schools of 
Greenwich. 

I have visited these schools once a w r eek, leaving work to 
be done during the week by the teacher. 

The aim of the system used in vocal music is independence 
on the part of the pupil, and toward this end has every effort of 
teacher and supervisor been put forth. The result give satis- 
faction and promise for the future. 

The material used is the Weaver Individual Sight Singing 
Series, and the Normal Music Readers. 

In judging of the work in drawing, it must be remembered 
that it is not as yet a fully developed department of study in 
these schools. It is a plant of young growth, and has not yet 
reached the blossoming stage. There are, however, gratifying 
evidences of the wisdom of its introduction in these schools. 
This is evinced, not so much at present by visible results, as by 
the readiness with which the work has been undertaken by-both 
teacher and pupil. 



27 

The work in synopsis is as follows: 

A. Primary Grades. 

I. Facts of form. 

i. Type solids: Sphere, cube, cylinder, hemisphere. 

2. Objects similar to type solids.

AUDITOR'S REPORT, 



I have audited the accounts of the Treasurer for the year 
ending March ist, 1905, and by examination of his vouchers, 
and their comparison with the accounts of the other officers up- 
on whose orders the several payments have been paid, I find 
the Treasurer's account correct. The amount of his cash bal- 
ance is supported by twelve hundred ninety-one dollars and 
eighteen cents in hand, ($1,291 18), and he holds nine hund- 
red ninetyrfeight dollars and forty cents, ($998.40), to the cred- 
it of the Cemetery Trust Fund, and he holds five hundred twen- 
ty dollars and twenty-four cents, ($520.24) to the credit of the 
Rebecca Spooner library Fund. I recommend a fuller compli- 
ance with my recommendation of last year, that the Treasurer 
require all orders drawn on him to be endorsed by the payee 
therein named before payment. 

Respectfully submitted, 

THOMAS H. DUNHAM, Auditor.

SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS 



-<•»■ « -«• ► ■ 



To the School Committee of Greenwich: 

The second annual report of the Superintendent of Schools 
is herewith presented for your consideration. It is the fourth 
of this department under district supervision. Accompanying 
this report will be found the usual school calendar and table of 
statistics, and the reports of the supervisor of Drawing and 
Vocal Music. 

The schools opened in the fall with two changes in the list 
of teachers. Mrs. Harriet B. Coffin, of Danbury, Conn., a 
teacher of several years' experience, succeeded Miss Chamber- 
lain at the Plain school. Though Miss Chamberlain had been 
with us less than a half year, she declined her re-election to ac- 
cept a school of fewer grades in the eastern part of the state. 
Miss Carrick did not wish to be considered a candidate for re- 
election at the North school, and she entered Mt. Holyoke Col- 
lege in September. She was succeeded by Miss Olive F. Bliss, 
of Blandford, who had taught successfully in New York and 
Massachusetts schools. It is noticeable that these changes oc- 
curred in the same schools that sustained a similar experience 
the year before. Miss Helen W. Traver, after a half year's 
study abroad, again took charge of the instruction in drawing 
and vocal music. You are referred to her reports for a more 
complete statement of her work. 



19 

The work of teaching and drill in all the departments of 
study has been pushed with the usual vigor, and with a fair de- 
gree of success. It has been carried on with the consciousness 
that there were many weak points that needed strengthening, 
and that in many ways more power to gain knowledge should 
be secured to the children than, in the time allotted, they were 
accustomed to receive. Constant vigilance has been employed to 
detect failures and discover the means to correct them and pre- 
vent their repetition. It is felt very generally, and with increas- 
ing force year by year, by the wise and faithful teacher, that 
the best possible opportunity should be afforded the child, and 
that this has not been accomplished unless he has been aroused 
to voluntary effort. He must be stimulated to exercise his men- 
tal powers to the utmost in the acquirement of knowledge. 
Only by this means can he grow and secure the full develop- 
ment of his faculties. Hence, every effort is made to awaken 
thought. 

If arithmetic is the subject of study, by constant and per- 
sistent appeals to the concrete, processes are discovered and 
mastered, and ability to interpret and solve problems developed. 

In geography, or any other branch, the blind memorizing 
of facts and details is discouraged, and in natural ways that in- 
terest and stimulate, the child is helped to discover for himself, 
make inferences and draw conclusions. Then follows the repe- 
tition, long continued and varied, by which the essentials of the 

subject are fixed, and the mind trained to the ready use of its 
powers. 

Language is a very comprehensive branch of study. It 
embraces certain artificial laws — the etiquette of speech. 
Mere glib expression is not enough; we must know the accepted 
canons. The Old Education, which concerned itself so much 
with technical grammar, and the New Education, which con- 
cerns itself so much with language, as a fine art, should be com- 
bined. Our forefathers were not all wrong. They did some 
things well, I believe that all the old-fashioned analysis and 



20 

parsing that is strictly English, and not in any sense Latin or 
Greek, should be taught today. The more recent departures in 
language-teaching, while attended by great gains, have not 
been taken without some losses. Let us hold tenaciously to 
that which is good in the Old Education, and accept without 
hesitation that which is good in the New. 

Reading and spelling, vocal music, drawing and penman- 
ship, are all parts of one and the same general subject, ex- 
pression, and we are seeking to treat them more and more as 
such, especially in the lower grades, and so carry them right 
along together. By well-directed efforts we aim to make our 
boys and girls appreciative and thoughtful readers, — to make 
them love reading for reading's sake, and find in it an intellec- 
tual pastime — to make them understand what they read and get 
the most possible from the printed page. 

The spelling book is not discarded in our schools, but by a 
more systematic teaching of spelling we are obtaining more grati- 
fying results. The words selected for spelling are largely those, 
the meaning of which has been brought out in the development 
of the reading and language lessons, and special attention is 
given to oft-recurring simple words. 

Special effort is needed to improve the deplorable school at- 
tendance. The statute requirement is so exacting, and is so 
imperfectly understood that a summary of the law is appended 
to this report. Would that we might adequately present to the 
parents of our pupils the importance of more perfect school at- 
tendance. Knowing that regularity of attendance is the first re- 
quirement for a successful school, and believing that the welfare 
of your children and the success of their school life are your 
dearest care, we appeal to you to try to send them every session 
during the coming term. No school can be of a very high or- 
der in which children are allowed by their parents to stay out 
every now and then on the most frivolous pretext. Such child- 
ren are a moth to any school. The child should understand 
that while he is attending school, school is the main thing.

You cannot impress him with the idea that education is some- 
thing to be valued and prized, and striven for with earnestness 
and patience, — in other words you cannot educate him at all, — 
unless it is made the great thing, to which other things, your 
own convenience and fancies, must bend. Not many realize 
how much the town annually pays for the education of these 
absent children. The waste cannot be measured in dollars and 
cents alone. It is insignificant in comparison with the exceed- 
ingly great loss which the misfortune or perversity of the pupil 
entails upon his associates. An incalculable amount of pupil's 
time and teacher's energies is thus wasted in fruitless and wea- 
risome repetition and reviews which would otherwise rapidly 
advance our schools to a degree of excellence, which under ex- 
isting conditions we can never hope to reach. This is unques- 
tionably the evil above all others which cripples our schools and 

defeats our most earnest and persistent efforts. The direct 
financial loss each year can be computed; the indirect loss to 
the lives and prospects of our youth is so great that it is diffi- 
cult to think of it with patience, and to speak of it with modera- 
tion. Teachers can do much towards enlisting the co-operation 
of parents. Investigation frequently reveals the fact that the 
home life of the child is an important factor to be taken into 
consideration. The strong arm of the law is needed at times, 
but the true mission of the truant officer is to secure attendance, 
not to prosecute children. His work is with the parents. 

Much encouragement may be derived from a retrospect of 
the past year's work. Hindrances have been experienced, but 
in the main a steady and healthful growth may be fairly noted. 
In some lines of work improvements have been made which 
promise an'increasing degree of efficiency as time passes on. 
We are pleased to note these improvements, and gratifying are 
the words of praise which have come to us from those who have 
taken pains to visit the schools. 

In conclusion, allow me to express my appreciation of our 
faithful teachers, and of the conservative attitude of Committee 
and citizens toward the educational interests of the town. 
Thanking you for the uniform kindness extended to me in the 
prosecution of my work, I am 

With great respect, 

LOUIS A. PRATT, Sup't of Schools.

SCHOOL ATTENDANCE 

Revised Laws, Chapter 44* 



Every child between the ages of seven and fourteen years 
is required to attend some public day school during the entire 
time such schools are in session, unless 

(i) He attends for a like period of time a private day 
school approved by the school committee; or unless 

(2) He is otherwise instructed for a like period of time in 
the branches of learning required by law to be taught in the 
public schools; or unless 

(3) He has already acquired such branches of learning; 
or unless 

(4) His physical or mental condition is such as to render 
his attendance inexpedient or impracticable. 

The Superintendent of schools, and teachers acting under 
his authority, may excuse cases of necessary absence. 

Until otherwise instructed, teachers are authorized to ex- 
cuse, as necessary, absence : 

(1) Due to child's own sickness. 

(2) Due to contagious disease in household. 

(3) Due to death in family. 

But they will not legally excuse absence due to : 

(1) Failure of parents, or other responsible parties, to 
provide necessary clothing. 

(2) Desire of parents to utilize the labor of the child. 

(3) Failure to enter school promptly when changing 
schools. 



<& REPORT dt 



— OF THK — 

SUPERVISOR OF VOCAL MUSIC. 



To THF SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS I 

I submit herewith the annual report of the Supervisor of 
Music in the schools of Greenwich. 

The amount of time given to the subject consists in the 
weekly visits of the Supervisor, and short daily lessons by the 
regular teacher along lines prescribed by the Supervisor. 

The advance in the knowledge and ability of the pupils 
during the past year has been most gratifying. The children 
are gaining in their individual work, and harmony and unity in 
class singing. 

Each school is divided into two classes for the work of the 
first four grades forming the first class, though aside from this 
division, the first grade is given especial attention. The work 
with the first class has been : Tone-placing, oral dictation of 
scale tones, staff representation, simple melodies, degrees of the 
staff, and rote songs, with frequent individual recitation. 

The pupils in the upper class have become familiar with 

the keys, and the writing of signatures, so that they find no 

difficulty in singing exercises in any key. They have a knowl- 
edge of common time, and are able to define many musical 
characters and terms in common use. They have ability to 
sing two part, and in some schools three part music, and a fair 
acquaintance with the bass staff. Much individual work has 
been done, as also good class singing. 

The great purpose of the work is to send out pupils from 
the schools each year with such a knowledge of music as will 
be a substantial ground work for further musical study, or, if 
they do not contemplate further study, such as will bring pleas- 
ure to others and to themselves, in power to execute and to ap- 
preciate good music. 

Respectfully submitted, 

HELEN W. TRAVER, Supervisor of Music. 



& REPORT & 

— OF THE — 

SUPERVISOR OF DRAWING, 



To the Superintendent of Schools : 

I herewith submit the annual report of the Supervisor of 
Drawing in the schools of Greenwich. 

Briefly stated, the purpose of drawing in the schools is to 
give (a) the power to draw any simple object from nature or 
imagination, (b) ability to make good working drawings, (c) 
some knowledge of good design, and (d) acquaintance with 
good examples of ancient and modern art. 

In the Primary grades, only the first has place. Readiness 
to draw, to express ideas pictorially, is the only sure foundation 
for good work in the upper grades. Among these beginners, 
criticism has been little employed — correctness of form is of sec- 
ondary importance to enthusiasm and spontaneous expression. 

In the intermediate grades, I have endeavored to develop 
the sense of proportion, and to lead the children to take a real 
pleasure in ability to make a drawing a truthful representation 
of the object. Care as to measurements enters here. Propor- 
tion and effects of perspective enter largely into the work of 
grammar grades. 

Working drawing and design in the lower grades has been 
embodied in constructive work — simple Christmas gifts and 
souvenirs appropriate to the various holidays. 

In the upper grades design has taken a more definite form 
— first, through imitation of good models, then stimulation of 
originality. In these grades I have emphasized the subject of 
color with a view to their gaining a keener perception of colors 
and values. 

I consider the work to be full of promise, because of the 
ability and the earnestness evinced. 

Respectfully submitted, 
HELEN W. TRAVER, Supervisor of Drawing.

Report of Superintendent of Schools. 



To the School Committee : 

The third annual report of the Superintendent of schools is here- 
with submitted. It is the fifth of this department under district su- 
pervision. In response to the requirements of the State Board of Ed- 
ucation, and conforming to a custom which is uniform throughout the 
state, the usual table of statistics covers the school year from Septem- 
ber, 1905 to June, 1906. This is supplemented by an additional tab- 
ulated statement to February, 1907. A study of the table will reveal 
much that is of interest to one who wishes to understand the general 
condition of the schools. The record may be of value for comparison 
with that of other years as well as being of present interest. The re- 
ports of the Supervisor of drawing and vocal music, and the school cal- 
endar is appended. 

Our schools are coming to realize some of the advantages of more 
permanency in the teaching force. Frequent changes are found to 
produce constant confusion, and the benefits to be derived from contin- 
uous methodical work are almost entirely lost. One term does not al- 
low sufficient acquaintance to be formed between teacher and pupil to 
enable them both to work to the best advantage. If the schools are to 
improve, it must be through the improvement of the teachers by train- 
ing those in the service, and by using every occasion of change to se- 
cure as good or if possible a better teacher than the one resigning. 
The average school membership for this town is now about fifty chil- 
dren and under present conditions it requires two teachers to educate 
them. Both teachers resigned during the last summer, Miss Clifford 
after a service of two and one half years at the Village, and Mrs. Cof- 
fin after a single year at the Plain school. The latter was tendered a 



21 



more lucrative position at the Hillside Industrial school. Miss Clif- 
ford was succeeded by Miss Fannie Watson of Williamsburg, and Miss 
Edith Leland of Ashfield took Mrs. Coffin's place. Nearly every 
change causes a slowing up of the work for several weeks during which 
the pupils and the new teacher are adjusting themselves to each other. 
It is decidedly good policy to retain a teacher of acceptable qualifica- 
tions for at least a year rather than to risk the disarrangements and 
dangers of a change. To this end it is probably wise not to hold to a 
hard and fast line of salaries, but to treat each case, as it arises, on its 
merits. No schedule of salaries can be rigidly adhered to, without oc- 
casionally preventing the securing or retention of exceptionally desira- 
ble teachers. The highest priced teacher is sometimes the cheapest, 
measured by the good she does. On the other hand a teacher who 
fails in discipline, or lacks ambition and teaching power, is expensive 
at any price. What a teacher can accomplish in her school is the tru- 
est measure of her value. Dr. J. M. Rice, in a recent notable Forum 
article, has but offered additional proof of what we have all along been 
conscious, namely, that above college and normal training, above all the 
graces of face, figure and voice, fine and essential as these are, is the 
" power of the teacher to develop power in her pupils." To such a 
teacher we can afford to pay a worthy hire. 

On the afternoon of June fifteenth, union exercises of graduation 
from the ninth grade were held in Farmer's hall at the Village, when 
eight pupils were graduated. The list is given below as a matter of 
record : 

Village School, Plain School. 

Maurice Schermerhorn, Nathan Sheldon, 

Linwood Giffin, Edith Blamire, 

Kenneth Clifford, Helen Hall. 
Raymond Walker, 
Lewis Johnston. 

Four of this class are pursuing courses in the Athol high school ; 
the Orange high, the Ware high and the Newton high each has one ; 
and one is at home. 

By act of the Legislature at its last session, medical inspection of 



22 



the schools becomes a necessity. The act provides : - 

1. That the school committee of every city and town shall appoint 
a school physician for every public school, and shall provide that every 
child who seems to be in ill health shall be promptly seen by the school 
physician. 

2. That the sight and hearing of all children in the public schools 
shall be annually tested by the teachers. 

No expense can be incurred by any city or town until an appro- 
priation for the purpose has been made. The tests of sight and hear- 
ing, however, involve no expense to the city or town inasmuch as they 
are made by the teachers and the blanks and materials for making 
them are supplied by the State Board of Education. It is very impor 7 
tant to observe and to point out how small an appropriation is needed. 
Against the expense must be placed the saving to the community from 
cutting off one of the chief channels for the spread of infectious dis- 
ease, especially diphtheria and scarlet fever, a saving not only in the 
life and health of the children but in that of the community at large. 

In the matter of sight and hearing tests, it is provided in the law 
that the method of making these tests shall be prescribed by the State 
Board of Health and that printed directions for making them shall be 
distributed by the State Board of Education. The tests are to be made 
by the teachers, and a teacher who knows the children, can test both the 
sight and hearing for each child in about five minutes. Our teachers 
have made the tests and in accordance with the statute have sent for- 
mal notice to the parents of defective children. A large number are 
defective in sight to the extent of needing glasses to do their school 
work properly, to prevent permanent injury to their eyes, or to avoid 
great nervous strain. The defects of sight increase with the length of 
school attendance and as a consequence of it. About five per cent, are 
defective in hearing so as seriously to interfere with their school work. 
The percentage of defects of hearing varies from week to week with 
weather and other conditions. It is of especial importance that only 
a small minority of these defects of sight and hearing would be discov- 
ered by the teachers or known to them, to the parents, or to the chil- 
dren themselves. The results oi children attempting to do school work 
while subject to these defects include injury to the eyes, resulting in 
blindness ; injury to the nervous system due to eye strain ; depression. 



23 



owing to inability to do what other children can do. Such ability pro- 
ceeding in the opinion of the teacher, the parent, and the child him- 
self, from mental deficiency, when really the cause is inability to see 
or inability to hear. 

The school physicians have been appointed and supplied with the 
necessary notification blanks. Dr. Myron H. Davis of Hardwick is as- 
signed to the Village school and Dr. Willard B. Segur of Enfield to 
the Plain school. Whenever a child shows symptoms of smallpox, 
scarlet fever, measles, chickenpox, tuberculosis, diphtheria or influenza, 
tonsilitis, whooping cough, mumps, contagious eye diseases, or parasit- 
ic diseases of the head or body, he shall be sent home immediately 
and the board of health shall at once be notified. It will be noted 
that Section 5 of the statute provides for examination of every child " to 
ascertain whether he is suffering from defective sight or hearing or 
from any other disability or defect tending to prevent his receiving the 
full benefit of his school work, or requiring a modification of the school 
work in order to prevent injury to the child or to secure the best edu- 
cational results." This may be interpreted to include nervous weakness, 
anemia, bad teeth, and many other matters. Notice of the disease or 
defects, if any, from which any child is found to be suffering must be 
sent to his parent or guardian. 

Under a perfect system of inspection will be developed manifold 
responsibilities. The examination of the eyes and ears alone will fore- 
stall measureless sufferings and thanks to the examiner, these organs 
will be preserved for a more useful future. By this same system of 
inspection, many cases of spinal distortion and stooped shoulders will be 
averted. Everything about the building that relates to its hygiene 
should be under the inspector's watchful eye. The heating, the tem- 
perature, the ventilation, the disinfection, and the sanitary closets would 
be supervised by one competent to know the exact requirements of 
all these departments. 

The school authorities outside the principal cities of our country 
have been slow to make use of the great advantages of medical inspect- 
ion. It is not a fad,- it is an ideal application of the " ounce of pre- 
vention. " No school is too large for its scope and none too small to 
dispense with it. It is a safe prediction that another decade will find 
the practice general. Delay, therefore, in instituting the regular in- 



24 



spection of the schools is not wise ; it is better to be a leader in a good 
movement than to be dragged into it later from fear of the shame of 
standing opposed to public good. 

In this connection reference to the sixty-sixth report of the secre- 
tary of the state board of education may be permitted. He speaks of 
the pressure of the irresponsible. The pressure of the aggregate of in- 
terests — when to the pressure from a single interest there are added 
pressures from numerous other interests — may become formidable and 
oppressive, far beyond the capacity of the schools to endure. This 
pressure is largely a pressure from irresponsible persons, — that is, 
from persons who are not charged with the direct and immediate man- 
agement of school affairs. Such persons are responsible, indeed, in a 
general way as citizens, but not in the special way in which members 
of a school committee are responsible. They are usually worthy peo- 
ple who want to improve the schools and to work with the school au- 
thorities for the purpose. Less hampered than those authorities by ad- 
verse and stubborn facts that have to be reckoned with, their sugges- 
tions often have a freedom and a sweep exhilarating to note, but hard 
to put into practice. Perhaps they urge vacation schools or a shorter 
school year ; the school museum, school gardening, school decoration, 
or that school sanitation is of supreme importance and the children 
should be medically inspected. They would have the schools give 
more attention than they now do to drawing, to music, to nature study, 
to manual work, or to whatever they deem of special importance. And 
so on through a long list of plans and propositions, a few of them vis- 
ionary, many of them admirable and some of them imperative. 

These ideas are not to be summarily disposed of as the frills and 
fads of education. Large numbers of these propositions merit rot 
simply consideration, but positive "recognition in the administration of 
the schools, It is the duty of citizens, however, to reflect upon what 
it means for the school committee to bear the brunt of these proposi- 
tions. Let the board sympathize ever so heartily with each of them 
as separately presented and defended, it cannot handle them all at 
once. Indeed, it cannot even patiently listen to them all without seri- 
ously reducing that time and energy which it must have to act upon 
some of them. Call it the pressure of measures or the pressure of 
persons, the school committee must stand between the aggregate of this 



25 



pressure and another aggregate, — that of opposing school conditions, 
of difficulties in raising money, of a public opinion untrained to ad- 
vanced ideas, and, in general of that conservatism that vast systems 
tend to develop and strengthen. 

What should be the attitude of the friends of the schools towards 
these innumerable suggestions for their welfare ? First of all, they 
should rejoice that so many thoughtful people are alive to the impor- 
tance of making the schooling of the children more natural, sensible 
and effective, if possible, than it has been in the past. This striving 
for better things means growth and life for the school system ; it is im- 
measurably superior to that indifference which means stagnation and 
decay. On the other hand, the school committee can advance but a 
step or two at a time ; and it cannot do this usually without the sup- 
porting power of a vigorous public opinion. And so there stands out 
the duty of concentrating effort on selected measures for improvement ; 
and with it the duty of waiving certain measures until more opportune 
times ; and finally the duty of confidence and loyalty, and of bearing 
patiently with the school committee whose task of carrying out a pro- 
gressive policy is as liable to be impeded by the aggregate of good 
things it is urged to do as by the aggregate of resistance it is forced to 
encounter. 

Meanwhile, let it not be forgotton that, so far as the school is pro- 
vided with strong teachers, its great work is going on effectively, not- 
withstanding visions of a greater work that is possible. Without the 
competent teacher, many of the new things done for the welfare of the 
schools are likely to be disappointing. With the competent teacher, 
such new things as may be added to or substituted for the old are more 
likely to tell effectively for such welfare. It should uot be overlooked 
that the most important element in the teacher's qualifications is not 
to be found in academic scholarship, essential as this is, not in the pow- 
er to hold a school in order, essential as this is, but in the rarer and 
finer power of leading the child to act judiciously, earnestly and ad- 
vantageously for himself in the enlargement of his executive and pro- 
ductive capacity, in the acquisition of knowledge and particularly of 
those larger underlying principles that enable him to classify and util- 
ize knowledge, in the cultivation of a sturdy civic spirit, and in the 
building up of a well-rounded and admirable character. 



26 



It is a wise provision of the law of this commonwealth that pro- 
vides for regular instruction in " physiology and hygiene and good be- 
havior. " In other words the State provides not only for the mental 
training of the child, but for physical and moral education as well. 
The care of the health, and the physical welfare of the children under 
her care should be a matter of first importance to the teacher. Great 
care concerning proper heating and ventilating of the school-room and 
the avoidance of draughts should be exercised. Physical exercises a- 
dapted to the needs of the children should occupy an important place 
in the daily program, and in the lower grades these exercises should be 
introduced whenever the children have been held to one position for a 
considerable time or are in need of a change. We would teach good 
manners and good morals as the foundation of good character and the 
basis of true citizenship, and would endeavor to inspire in the hearts 
and minds of all our boys and girls a high ideal and a genuine desire 
for a noble life. 

Closely connected with the above thoughts are others. Unguard- 
ed criticism in the presence of the pupil in the home promptly under- 
mines the respect due the teacher. The evil effects of unfavorable 
home influences have been felt this year in the schools. Anything 
that will bring about a closer union between home and school will be 
of great benefit to both. A greater knowledge, each of the other, will 
create a bond of sympathy, confidence and support. Parents do not, 
as a rule, visit the schools, or not enough. Many parents never visit 
and the loss by this neglect, to parent and school, can hardly be esti- 
mated. With all their other duties teachers cannot as often as they 
would, visit the homes of a large number of pupils. When they do so 
it is too often because they must, in order to settle some unnecessary 
difficulty, rather than to consult and devise means for mutual assist- 
ance. A knowledge on the part of a teacher of the child's surround- 
ings would materially help that teacher in determining what her indi- 
vidual work with that pupil should be ; a knowledge on the part of the 
parent of what the schools are attempting to do would make him more 
willing to assist. The parent has a great interest in the welfare of his 
child, but this interest usually manifests itself spasmodically, and it 
takes some unusual occasion to make it do so at all. The tax-payers 
are liberal in their support of the schools, as liberal perhaps as they 



27 



feel that they can afford to be. Would that they were as liberal in 
their sympathy openly expressed ! Would that they felt even more 
keenly that the schools are theirs — that what is being done for them is 
being done for their children, and that nothing that is good can be too 
good for them ! It is for the parents to say whether or not the schools 
are what they wish them to be, or as good as they would have them. 
They can make them what they will. 

In conclusion, I wish to thank all who have in any way assisted 
in trying to make our schools better. The administration of the town's 
schools has been largely and properly along lines previously laid down. 
New things have been only steps forward, let us hope, from vantage 
ground already gained. This suggests the situation in New England 
towns generally. Their schools are evolutions. Present conditions 
may be considered as resulting from a long series of " survivals of the 
fittest, " again and again being shaped to latest needs, often touched 
and retouched by hands of varying skill. However, it is safe to say 
that nowhere else in America have these shaping hands been guided by 
hearts more loyal to the one great aim of making the schools serve for 
upright manhood and womanhood, good scholarship, and intelligent, 
pure citizenship. 

Respectfully Submitted, 



LOUIS A. PRATT, Supt of Schools.

Report of Supervisor of Music. 



To the Superintendent of Schools : 

The report of work done in music during the past year is here sub- 
mitted. 

The gain during the past year has been threefold ; gain in indi- 
vidual work, gain in class singing, and gain in knowledge of the tech- 
nical side of music. The improvement in the first is due to the con- 
scientious and frequent use of the Weaver Sight Singing slips, and the 
gain here is directly responsible for the improvement in the chorus 
work. That chorus only can do good work which is composed of those 
who have confidence and independence as individual singers. Gccd 
two and three voice work has been done this year, and some very cred- 
itable reading at sight. 

Music on its technical side- knowledge of keys, common and com- 
pound time, chromatics etc., has received careful attention, and the 
knowledge gained is definite and concise. 

More time has been given this year than heretofore to rote songs 
in the first three grades, as a means of developing the child voice, and 
a relaxation in the busy school room. 

The good work done in the lower class last year is apparent in 
the good singing of this year's upper class. For the coming year we 
hope for even greater progress and growth. 

In conclusion I wish to express my appreciation of the cordial in- 
terest in my department shown by the public, and to thank the Supt. 
and teachers for their hearty co-operation. 

Respectfully Submitted, 

HELEN W. TRAVER, 

Supervisor of Music. 



Report of Supervisor of Drawing. 



To the Superintendent of Schools : 

I herewith submit the following report of the work done in draw- 
ing during the past year. 

The work has been characterized by progress along certain lines, 
though still greater improvement is possible. There has been an in- 
crease in readiness to draw, the result, in the early grades, often show- 
ing more imagination than accuracy. But even in such drawings, the 
desire to express an idea is present, and each expression of the idea is 
likely to be better than the last. 

The work in the upper grades shows a growth in the power of 
seeing and thinking clearly and expressing truthfully. 

The monthly contests with prizes offered by the " School Arts 
Books" have stimulated the children to better work, and four of the 
children in this town have won prizes or honorable mention. 

The year's work has been along the same general lines as last 
year's outline : Nature drawing and design in Spring and Fall, object 
drawing, illustration, and constructive work during the winter. 

For earnest co-operation in this work, I wish to thank the Supt. 
and teachers. 

Respectfully Submitted, 

HELEN W. TRAVER, 

Supervisor of Drawing.
