Report of Superintendent 



To the School Committee of Greenwich: 

It is the good fortune of the Plains and the Village schools 
that no change in teachers was necessary. At the North school. 
Miss Mealand takes the position left vacant by the resignation of 
Miss Vera Thurston. 

Mrs. Ruth B. Dwelley of Oakham, music supervisor, did not 
come after May. and Mrs. Whitaker of New Salem looked after 
the musical interests at the close of the school year. Mrs. Whit- 
aker is now our regular supervisor of music as well as of draw- 
ing. 

To our supervisor}' staff a new member has been added in the 
person of Miss Jean I. MacDonald, school nurse. She is regis- 
tered, and has had some experience. Your attention is invitee^ to 
her report. > 

To Mrs. Grace Joy Fewell we owe much for the elaborate grad- 
uation exercises of all the schools at the church at the Plains last 
June. They surpassed anything of the kind held here in many 
years, so I have been told. The participants, by the excellent 
way in which they took their parts, showed expert training. 

Very willingly the teachers have taken up physical exercises 
with the pupils as required by state law. With the aid of Miss 
Moran, the Walter Camp "Daily Dozen" are being taught. 
These exercises are the more pleasurable as they are accompanied 



65 



and directed by a victrola bought at the suggestion of our ener- 
getic music supervisor. This machine may also be used for prac- 
tice in penmanship. It is valuable in the graceful folk dances 
which the children are learning. In giving the children fre- 
quent periods for hearing music of the best composers, gradually 
and unconsciously they will come to appreciate and to prefer it. 
The victrola in the school makes this possible. 

Perhaps the most important change in the school plants is the 
installation of septic toilets at both the Plains and the Village 
schools. These are not flush closets and do not depend upon 
chemicals for action. The liquid waste passes through several 
feet of tile and is absorbed by the earth. The chemical reactions 
within the tank keep the liquid from freezing. This is a most 
gratifying change from toilet conditions that obtained a year ago. 

The next important change is the hanging of adjustable tan 
shades at these same buildings, and the painting of the interior) a 
light color. ' 

With the tabulated information that follows, I respectfully sub- 
mit this my fifth annual report.

Keport of School Nurse 



To the Town of Greenwich : 

The following report I am submitting covers only from Octo- 
ber to January. In October all the children were examined by 
Dr. Segur with the exception of the North School which was com- 
pleted in December. The following is a report of the findings : 

Cases of enlarged tonsils 7 

Cases of enlarged adenoids 4 

Cases of carious teeth 18 

Cases of faulty posture 6 

Cases of Cardiac involvement 2 

Cases of Glands 1 

No. of children under weight 10 

No. of children examined 76 

The children that were found underweight were given advice on 
diet, hygiene, etc., and reweighed monthly. All have shown some 
gain. 

When I had the opportunity of organizing and developing 
School Hygiene and School Nursing in twelve rural towns, I felt 
there was enough material and proof in forty-six schools to con- 
vince me of many problems and conditions that have previously 
come up in other school positions I have held. There is almost 



72 



always a question with all nursing supervisors. "Would school 
nursing be better developed and best results obtained by one per- 
son responsible for just the school work, or can just as good re- 
sults be accomplished by a Community Nurse dividing her time 
between bedside care and welfare work?" This question may 
be answered by a yes and no. I am of the firm belief that the 
most effective educational work is accomplished by the worked 
whose field of supervision covers one subject and for which she! 
has been specially trained. It seems to me that the Community 
Nurse's work is distinctly separate and she can best be used for 
the emergency calls and bedside care or social welfare work. 
Then the question of transportation comes up. This is serious, 
because it handicaps the work, but rural school work is still in 
the experimental stage and there is no reason why transportation 
cannot be made just as efficient as any other part of the work, es- 
pecially in the towns that have consolidated the schools. 

The physical defects that were found by the doctors in the ex- 
aminations have been about the same as are always found in 
school examinations and the question of interesting parents in the 
corrections of defects which handicap a child is met with the same* 
lack of interest here as elsewhere. Doctors, teachers and nurses 
are always reporting that notices are sent to parents notifying 
them of the child's physical defect, such as tonsils and adenoids, 
year after year with no results. I have the deepest feeling for 
any child and parent having to go through all this, living as 
many of them do, many miles from a hospital, perhaps the only 
transportation to and from is a team. Correcting physical de- 
fects is like any other form of educational work, and no person 
should attempt it until she can find the most considerate and con- 
venient plan in which parents can co-operate, and in the rural 
towns some better plan has to be thought of where the child can 
be properly cared for in the town in which they live. Not many 
that I have talked with agree with me on this, but I consider itj 
one of our greatest future needs. 



73 



It has been a pleasure to work with the teachers, and whatever 
successes have been made or results accomplished has not only 
been clue to the interest I have tried to give but largely to the in- 
terest of the teachers and Superintendent and their co-operation, 
with me in the health program. 

In going over my program with the Superintendent, not only 
have my wishes received every consideration, but I have been 
greatly helped by various suggestions. 

In school nursing, as in all other Public Health work, there 
should be the closest and keenest kind of co-operation, and I 
know of no better way of expressing it than the following quota- 
tion. "To raise the standards of home life ; to give young peo- 
ple opportunities to learn to care for children, so that when they 
assume the duties of parenthood they may have some conception 
of the methods that will best develop the physical, intellectual 
and spiritual nature of the child; to bring into closer relations* 
the home and the school, so that parents may co-operate intelli- 
gently in the education of the child ; to surround the childhood of 
the world with that wise, loving care in the impressionable years 
of life that will develop good citizens ; to use systematic , and 
earnest efforts to this end through the formation of parent- 
teacher and welfare associations in every public school and com- 
munity ; through the distribution of health literature, which will 
be of practical use to parents in the problems of home life ; to se- 
cure more adequate laws for the care of blameless and dependent 
children, and to carry the mother love and mother thought into all 
that concerns childhood." 

Respectfully submitted.

Report of Drawing Supervisor 



Suft. Arthur IV. Smith, _ . 

North Dana, Mass. 

Dear Sir: 

I herewith submit my second report of the drawing in the town 
of Greenwich. 

The work of the school year 1921-1922 was successfully com- 
pleted and a pleasing exhibit held as a part of the graduation 
program. 

The work this year has been along the same lines as was taught 
last year. It is much improved, however, in quality over that of 
last year. More attention has been given this year to lettering, 
design and construction work. Originality is being encouraged 
and guided. 

The winter months will be given over to basketry, using both 
reed and raffia. The remainder of the year will be spent on fore- 
shortening and perspective, pose drawing and applied design. 

I wish at this time to express my appreciation of the faithful 
co-operation of the regular teachers and the superintendent at ajl 
times. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CLARA W. WHITAKER, 

Supervisor of Drawing 



Report of Music Supervisor 



Swpt. Arthur W . Smith, 
North Dana, Mass. 

Dear Sir: 

I herewith submit my first report of the music in the town of 
Greenwich. 

Many problems of many kinds have confronted me in the music 
of the Greenwich schools. Some of the difficulties I believe; we 
have overcome but the progress is slow. 

The school committee have assisted me greatly by purchasing 
a portable victrola. This I gladly transport from school to 
school. At present it is used to promote Rhythm through marches, 
Folk dances and Walter Camp's "Daily Dozen." The latter is 
correlated closely with physical culture and the results will be no- 
ticeably physical. 

Later we hope to give the children a course in music apprecia- 
tion. This course is extremely important, for every child must 
listen to music wherever he goes. It therefore behooves us to see 
that he listens intelligently. 

As for chorus work : We are endeavoring to teach the children 
to read music in all keys and to sing with joy and understanding. 
Three-part songs have been sung at the Plains but it has not been 
advisable to clo much part work elsewhere. I hope to raise the 



76 



standard of music in these schools before the close of the year. 

I wish to thank the teachers for their earnest efforts, and the 
superintendent and members of the school committee for the 
hearty support which I have received from them during the year 

Respectfully submitted, 

CLARA W. WHITAKER, 

Supervisor of Music I

Report of Superintendent of Schools 



To the School Committee of Greenwich'. 

With this I submit my sixth annual report. While more might 
be written on the two or three points I bring up, I shall write 
briefly and leave opportunity for thought. 

At the Village school, water is yet the crying need. Next after 
that is the painting of the interior in light colors. The effect of 
such treatment may be seen at the Plains. 

I recommend the displacing of the teacher's desk at the Plains 
by a new two pedestal one. 

A notable improvement in our school plants is the two-compart- 
ment outhouse connected by a short inclosed passageway to the 
main building at the North school. 

If this school is to be kept open, suitable window shades and 
better blackboard equipment should be provided. A jacket about 
the stove to cause better circulation of air, more warmth near the 
walls, and less discomfort from the heat near the stove, is needed. 
The appearance of the building would be improved by .a coat of 
paint. 

It is accepted as a fact by many that decayed teeth are a cause 
of a few bodily ailments. The school nurse brings this to our at- 
tention in the accompanying report from her. A dental clinic 
similar to the one she speaks of has proved valuable in New Sa- 
lem. I hope the clinic may be had in Greenwich. Perhaps the 
mothers will organize in favor of it. 



64 



It is gratifying to see that the town has been improving its 
school plants for several years. Also it has been liberal in pro- 
viding books and supplies for instruction, and in its allowance for 
good instructors. 

However, another step needs to be taken to obtain the greatest 

value of good instruction. The ability of a first class teacher ex- 
ercised over eight grades, to say nothing about the number of pu- 
pils, does not result in as much good upon any one grade or pupil 
as it would if exercised upon half that number. In a closely 
graded school of one grade a first vear class may read from ten to 
twentv primers in a vear: we do verv well if we read two or three. 
In an upper grade we "get through" a given book, and the teach- 
er of one grade may use the same text. But there is a difference. 
We use that book only, while the one grade teacher throws more 
light on the text, and with it introduces much collateral matter 
which our teachers may know how to use but for which they have 
not the time. That is, the fewer the grades, the broader the field 
of work in each grade, the greater the amount of information ac- 
quired by the pupils. 

The following tables will give further information concerning 
the teachers and the schools. 

Respectfully submitted,

Report of School Nurse 



Mr. W . Smith, Suft. Schools, 
North Dana, Mass. 

My dear Mr. Smith :- 

I hereby report to you the work done in the town of Greenwich 
from August to Decembeer 31, 1923. 

Number visits to schools 7 

Number children examined with school physician 58 

Number children with defects 35 

Number children with carious teeth 22 

Number pupils with enlarged tonsils and adnoids 5 

Number pupils with poor posture 5 

Number children underweight 13 

Number children weighed and measured 60 

To correct the teeth defects, I recommend that a dental clinic 
visit the schools twice a year. A dental committee can be formed 
in the town, and if this committee will write to the Department of 
Public Health, State House, Boston, they will receive all detailed 
information about same. These! dental clinics are sent to the rural 
schools for a very nominal sum. 

I recommend that the ceilirig and walls of the Greenwich Vil- 
lage school room be painted a light color; hooks for clothing in 
both entrances are badly needed. A bench or shelf in the en- 



69 



trance halls of all school houses to hold the children's lunch boxes 
will greatly improve the orderliness of the buildings. 

I will close my report with thanks to you, the teachers and the 
school board, for your hearty co-operation. 

Very respectfully yours, 

ESTHER P. CLEVELAND, 

A. R. C. Public Health Nurse 



Report of Supervisor of Drawing 



North Prescott, Mass., Jan. 8, 1924. 
Suft. A.W . Smith, 
North Dana, Mass. 

Dear Sir, 

I herewith submit my third report of the drawing in the Green- 
wich schools. 

Beginning January, 1923, reed work was introduced in the 
Grammar classes. As this was entirely new to the pupils, it 
seemed wise to devote the remainder of the year to this work in 
order that baskets that were really valuable might be completed. 
The Intermediate classes took up raffia work and the Primary 
classes nauer construction and weaving. 

In the fall nature was studied in all the classes by sketching 
flowers and landscapes. This was followed with appropriate de- 
signs for Thanksgiving and Christmas. 

The marked improvement of the work this fall is very gratify- 
insr to all concerned. The teachers have co-operated enthusiasti- 
callv in every detail and the superintendent has been very prompt 
and considerate in the furnishing of supplies: for all this I wish 
to express my sincere appreciation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CLARA W. WHITAKER, 

Sufr. of Drawing 






Report of Supervisor of Music 



North Prescott, Mass., Jan. 8, 1924. 
Supt. A.W . Smith, 

North Dana, Mass. 
Dear Sir, 

In reply to your request I herewith submit my second report of 
the music in the schools of Greenwich. 

The work has been carried on in much the same manner as that 
of last year. The children have been taught rote songs, unison 
songs, songs at sight, and some part singing. Reading music at 
sight seems to be the most bothersome and in this the children 
need more drill. 

Special individual attention has been given to the less musical 
children in endeavoring to train their ears musically, that they 
may be able to sing a song through correctly according to time 
and tune witnout help from the teacher. Twelve such children 
have been helped, and this is a big item when one considers that 
except for this private drill these children probably would never 
be able to sing correctly. 

The victrola has proved a splendid help for folk dancing and 
physical culture. Musical Appreciation plans are laid for fur- 
ther use of the victroia during the months to come. 

In closing I wish to extend thanks to the teachers for their co- 
operation and to the superintendent for his kindly interest and 
support. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CLARA W. WHITAKER, 

Supv. of Music

If the North school is continued, changes should be made there. 
The present old double desks and seats should be discarded for 
new adjustable, movable ones. Then place the west windows on 
the south side and set the stove in a high, curved-top j acket in the 
northwest corner. Raise all windows as close as possible to the 
ceiling, and provide each with a light colored, semi-transparent, 
washable, two-pulley, adjustable shade. 

A well with an anti-freeze pump should be near. 

Sometime the stove at the Plains may be set in the northwest 
corner in a high, curved-top jacket, and the seats faced either 
north or west. Suitable changes in windows would be necessary. 

The Village school room needs painting in a light color. 

Platforms at both the Village and the North schools should be 
removed. 

I gather from reports or lack of reports from the teachers that 
there was no general observance of Education Week last Novem- 
ber. The teachers were ready to receive visitors, but few came. 
We will do better next year. 

We feel the loss of our excellent supervisor of music and draw- 
ing in the resignation of Mrs. Clara W. Whitaker last April. 

We have in the new supervisor of music, Miss Genevieve H. 
Gale, a graduate of the New England Conservatory of Music, 
public school course, one who is taking up the work enthusiastical- 
ly. Through her we are introducing a modern series of books 



62 



published by Ginn & Company. The series presents the latest 
ideas regarding public school music. At present only the lower 
grade books are in the schools. 

In lieu of a supervisor of drawing, the teachers are) using their 
own ideas, or are guided by an art series which have been given to 
each teacher. Results so far are good. 

The book long in use in third grade geography, has been dis- 
placed by a recent publication entitled, "First Lessons in Geogra- 
phy," by Knowlton. It is a very different book. 

In the seventh and eighth grades, we have placed the first two 
books of a junior high school mathematical series, with the idea 
of making the mathematical transition from our grammar school 
to high school less difficult. These books take up algebra and ge- 
ometry in elementary form, and call for much more thinking and 
construction than the arithmetics commonly in use. 

Perhaps the most notable thing connected with the schools this 
year, and possibly as progressive an educational move as has been 
made in several years, is the assembling of grammar grades in 
one room and primary grades in another. This results in greater 
opportunity for both teachers and pupils in both schools, since 
recitation periods may be longer and there are fewer grades to the 
teacher. It also shortens the room day for the primary grades. 

An agent of the State Board of Education, who recently visited 
the schools and asked for a picture of the transportation- bus, ap- 
proved the change we have made. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ARTHUR W. SMITH, 

Suferintendent of Schools

Report of Supervisor of Music 



To the Suferintendent of Schools'. 

I hereby submit my first report as Supervisor of Music in the 
public schools in the town of Greenwich. 

Music is frequently called a universal language because it is 
the first and most natural expression of human thought and emo- 
tions for all races of the world. 

The three main elements by which we may express our deepest 
emotions through music are : Rhythm, Melody, and Harmody. 

In order to understand music as a factor in a child's education, 
a general outline of the public school music course as so far com- 
pleted will be given. The primary work consists of rote songs ap- 
propriate to the child's life. With the new books entitled, "Songs 
of Childhood," the children have learned to know more about mu- 
sic as it is written. The notes are printed very large and they are 
well spaced. The rhythm of these songs develops the first impor- 
tant element of music. 

In one. of the schools the pupils have secured sand blocks, 
whereby the rhythm of a song was made more real. We are hop- 
ing to add more instruments, such as horns, drums and others, to 
form a Kinder Band. The singing games and the physical cul- 
ture exercises have developed their sense of rhythm. 

The intermediate grades have greatly improved in sight sing- 
ing since the beginning of school. The songs are learned by sylla- 
bles, which enables them to understand just how the melody of 



68 



music is written. The pupils enjoy unison singing, especially the 
patriotic songs. We have not learned as many songs as we would 
like to have learned, but what we have learned has been by real 
sight singing. 

In the Junior High, the singing consists of two parts mostly, 
the soprano and alto. The pupils train their ears to hear the two 
parts sung in time, tone and with expression. The other element 
in music is harmony, which consists of two parts sung in harmony. 

The instumental side of music in the public schools is fast com- 
ing to the front. Each pupil has a note book in w T hich notes are 
taken for instruction about musicians of the present time, compos- 
ers, and the study of the various instruments of the orchestra. By 
the aid of the victrola in the schools, we can determine the various 
instruments being played upon and learn to distinguish their dif- 
ferent tone qualities and their prominence in the piece being 
played. 

My visits to the Greenwich schools have been every other Wed- 
nesday. The weather and travelling have been favorable, there* 
fore I have been able to make all my visits to each of the three, 
schools. 

I wish to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude 
for the hearty co-operation of all the teachers and for their assis- 
tance in making my work more progressive. 

Respectfuly submitted, 

GENEVIEVE H. GALE, 

Supervisor of Music

LIBRARIAN'S REPORT 

This has been a very prosperous year for the library with gen- 
erous gifts from the State Library Commission and from other 
interested friends. We were very fortunate in having Mrs. W. 
J. Arnold reorganize our library at the expense of the State Li- 
brary Commission. They gave us four weeks of Mrs. Arnold's 
time and furnished all the supplies necessary for the work. It 
was a pleasure to work with Mrs. Arnold who took great interest 
and pride in preparing our library for greater usefulness. Mrs. 
Arnold roomed and boarded with the librarian and her family, so 
the work was of no expense to the town. The books are classified 
and catalogued according to modern methods and the library is 
now in a position to be of greater service to the public. 

In addition to reorganizing our library, the State Library 
Commission has given us books, magazines, and The World Book, 
a splendid set of reference books. Those who are familiar with 
our Free Public Library realize the value of such gifts, and it is 
our earnest wish that more people come to the library and make 
use of all available advantages. 

In behalf of the trustees I wish to thank those who faithfully 
and willingly helped the work of reorganization by coming, day 
after day, to do the more wearisome part of the work. 
Respectfully submitted, 

LAURA E. WALKER, Librarian

Report of Superintendent of Schools 



To the School Committee of Greenwich: 

There is but little to report this year as there has been no im- 
portant change. The text book course is modified each year to 
meet the year's needs, but the principle of alternation of subjects 
and combination of classes is continued. 

Mr. Francis J. Gorman, our new supervisor of music, strongly 
favors two more music reproducing machines on the ground of 
their worth in teaching rhythm, for music appreciation, and for 
music memory contests. Each school has the one victrola we own 
only two weeks out of six weeks when it is transferred on time. 

He has had some music dramatization to increase the creative 
and physical abilities. 

On the whole he finds the schools musically up to par, but 
finds weakness in note reading and tonal appreciation. These, 
together with music appreciation, will receive his attention. 

The jacketed stove at the Plains school has been placed in the 
northwest corner of the room, much to the comfort of pupils and 
greater use of the room and board in front of the school. 

Hyloplate blackboards were set up at the North school during 
the summer vacation. Also the sills and underpinning of this 
building were repaired. 

Either this building should be abandoned and the pupils trans- 



61 



ported to the larger schools, or several hundred dollars be spent 
in putting it into suitable condition for a modern school. It 
should be refloored with the removal of the platforms. The very- 
undesirable double desks should be replaced by modern movable 
desks. No teacher can show best results of her efforts when con- 
fronted by double desks. 

The teachers at the Plains and the Village schools report that 
the classes are better prepared for this year's work than the same 
grades were at the opening of school in September 1924. This is 
due to the change made in the schools a year ago, whereby the 
number of grades in each school was reduced and more time giv- 
en to each class. It is particularly noticeable in the lower grades 
where, instead of struggling through one or two readers only, 
they now read more than double that. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ARTHUR W. SMITH, 

Superintendent of Schools

Petersham, Mass., December 31. 1925 

The Superintendent of Schools, 
Greenwich, Mass. 

Dear Sir:- 

The following is my report of the school nursing clone during 
the past year at your schools. 

Number of visits made to the schools 18 

Assisted physician to examine children for physical defects. 
Number of defects noted 59 

Classification of defects: 

Posture 4 

Underweight 10 

Teeth 22 

Throat 9 

Nose 5 

Glands 5 

Heart 2 

Flat-feet 2 

Children weighed and measured twice during the school year 60

Report of Superintendent of Schools 



To the School Committee of Greenwich: 

The plant improvements of the schools this last year have been 
important. The Village School with its white ceiling and wall 
tops certainly is much lighter on a dark day, and at all times 
more cheerful. At the North School the jacketed stove moved to 
the northwest corner of the room is giving satisfactory warmth. 
A good new floor was laid, and the windows were fitted with ad- 
justable tan duck shades. The greatest drawback here is the 
double desks. The tendency to communicate or play with one 
another and to make use of a seat companion's school work is 
greatly increased by the use of these desks. This means a more 
difficult task for the teacher. 

The discipline in all the schools this fall is unquestionably 
good as the superintendent sees it. The school lessons are being 
well taught, and the pupils are working in good spirits. 

All our schools have undergone changes in teacliers. Miss 
Gertrude Hanson, who had been teaching in Prescott, was ap- 
pointed to the North School. Miss Louise H. Clarenbach, a 
graduate last June of the Westfield Normal School, was ap- 
pointed at the Plains. A strongly qualified graduate of the 
Bridgewater Normal School, four years' course, is Miss Doris M. 
Hudson of the Village School. 

During last year we began to give tests in Mathematics. One 
test showed the weaknesses of individuals and of whole classes. 
Noting the weak spots the teachers placed emphasis at those 
points and were pleased when the tests were given later to note 



60 



that improvement was made over the preceding tests. We intend 
to give Stanford Achievement Tests soon, and similar tests again 
next June. We hope that the tests about to be given in the sev- 
eral subjects will show to us the points upon which the teacher 
should put stress, and that the value of the stress so placed will 
be shown in the June tests. 

The superintendent wishes to get away from the question and 
answer form of recitation through a whole period. With the co- 
operation of teachers of grades seven and eight he wishes to give 
up a large part of the so-called recitation period to study di- 
rected by the teacher to help individual pupils to help themselves. 
The pupils should do the work through their own mental effort 
and not because they follow specific directions of the teacher. 

Some time ago a committee from different sections of the state 
was formed to draft a pupil report card. Its form of report was 
adopted and ordered printed. As it was to be used largely 
throughout the State, we have fallen in line. Because the cards 
were not printed as early as we expected, there was a delay in 
sending out the pupils' reports. As you will see from the cards, 
thest, reports should be sent out once in two months. Parents are 
requested to study the report and confer with the teacher. If de- 
ficiency notices are sent, please give them attention. 

Mrs. Edna C. Smith, School Nurse, in company with the school 
physician, made the rounds of the school in September and Octo- 
ber. Mrs. Smith resigned in November. As yet we have been 
unable to find a person suitably prepared to fill the position. The 
State authorities advise waiting until we can do that. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ARTHUR W. SMITH, 

Superintendent of Schoots

Report of Supervisor of Music 



To the Superintendent of Schools: 

School music means much in the lives of the young people, for 
music is an essential part of education. It gives incentive to the 
studies, and with the correct interpretive, aids in formulating a 
basis of education. The mission of the public school supervisor 
is of a varied type, not only does it reach the lives of the children 
but is an active factor in the community. 

Much has been done this year to construct a more denned mu- 
sic curriculum. The course has been devised for a more concen- 
trated school room practice and music appreciation. The latter 
subject is of viral importance. 

I am very desirous to have a more complete selection of re- 
cording records. The Victrola has become, within recent years, 
a necessary adjunct to the class room. Children cannot learn to 
enjoy nor desire to study that with which they have no acquaint- 
ance. The need for an organized course of study with the Vic- 
trola is imperative and is rich in both usefulness and adaptabili- 
ty. It is a great dream come true that the children living in re- 
mote places can have at their command the greatest artists and 
symphony orchestras of the world. What kind of music are your 
children able to hear ? The people must answer. 

A purchase of more books has been made. The s/ogan has 
been. "A book for every child."' The musical interest is gaining 
with strides. The children are showing a more willing attention 
to the subject and consequently they receive a more pleasurable 
result. 



67 



My aim is to make " Music a living and lasting influence to 
the child and create a love for the Beautiful." 

I am indebted to my Superintendent and teachers for their a- 
cute observation and execution of my Ideal. I extend my most 
grateful thanks to them and the town for their interested support. 

"Music is to the Soul, as Air to the body." — Plato 

Respectfully submitted, 

FRANCIS J. GORMAN, 

Music Supervisor 
December 27, 1926

Report of Superintendent of Schools 



To the Committee of Greenwich : 

Miss Elizabeth A. Frost, a graduate of Salem Normal School, 
accepted the North School position left vacant by the resignation 
of Miss Gertrude Hanson last March. Since then no changes 
have taken place in our teaching force. 

After trying all known sources, we have been unable to find an 
available school nurse, even for an occasional visit. 

Last spring the teachers of the school union selected four com- 
mittees of four teachers each. Each committee had representation 
from each town. 

The best method for us to use with our text books in history 
and geography was to be recommended by two of the committees. 
These two are yet studying the problem. They have been hin- 
dered by the several changes in teachers, causing change in per- 
sonnel of committees. 

Since the edition of spellers we were using was going out of 
print, it became necessary to select a new speller or buy a new 
edition of the old one. Buying a new edition of an old book is 
about the same financially as buying a new book. So one of the 
committees spoken of above, carefully examined a dozen or more 
spellers with the view of selecting a modern speller that could be 
adapted to our alternate method of use. This committee recom- 
mended as first choice, The Breed-French Speller. The superin- 
tendent, after much study of the books, agreed with the choice of 
the committee and the book was placed in the schools. 

The tests mentioned a year ago have been given, but lack of 



58 



sufficient office help has prevented the superintendent from ana- 
lyzing results and drawing conclusions. A cursory examination 
of them seems to show that a majority of the pupils were doing- 
well for their chronological ages, but that the grade work was a 
little difficult except for those having high intelligent quotients 
A few having good intelligent quotients were doing unsatisfac- 
tory work ; were not doing as well as they were capable of doing. 
Several classes of same grade showed varying educational age 
marks and their intelligent quotients often showed the cause. 

The superintendent thanks the committee and the teachers for 
their cooperation.

Report of Supervisor of Musij 



Westboro, Mass. 
Dec. 29, 1927. 

Superintendent of Schools ', 
Greenwich, Mass. 

The appreciation of good music is one of the finest things that 
belong to life, but it does not manifest itself through the naming 
of composers and their compositions, nor is it evident in the rec- 
ognition of instrument tones, nor in the aimless picking out of 
motives and themes. Appreciation of good music is manifest 
through its preferment. When we invite in the child this prefer- 
ment we invite a contemplation of the beautiful and good. Such 
contemplation may become an attitude or controlling influence 
for the growth and happiness of the individual as well as for the 
welfare of society. Such a background seems to be the control- 
ling factor for music education in school curriculum. 

I am pleased to say our music is especially taught with this 
aim. 

The music memory contest does this successfully. That is its 
chief distinction. Such work in appreciation, while beneficial to 
all children, is particularly desirable for those children who are 
taking music lessons or planning to do so in the future. Instead 
of driving children to it, we lead them to it so that they learn for 
themselves that it is something to be enjoyed. It is my means to 
perpetuate such a controlling source and every child is entitled to 
the advantage. 

The music education series provides the opportunity for an all- 



60 



round musical development. The need of a book for every child 
has been supplied. Through the books, , pupils learn to sing 
songs that result in power and enthusiasm in participation, songs 
that make the music period a stimulating experience, songs 
that make a strong appeal through attractive verse and melodic 
beauty. This is in line with progress. 

I am indebted to my superintendent and teachers for their a- 
cute observation and execution of my ideal. I extend my most 
grateful thanks to them and the town for its interested support. 

"Teach every child to draw, model, sing or play a musical in- 
strument." — Dr. Charles W. Eliot

FRANCIS J. GORMAN

Report of Superintendent of Schools 



Greenwich, Mass., Jan. 2, 1929 
To the School Committee: 

With the close of the summer term, our three teachers severed 
their connections with our schools. Miss Elizabeth A. Frost, 
teacher at the North School, became Mrs. Wentworth. Her school 
was permanently closed last June. The few pupils left in the dis- 
trict have been transported to other schools. Miss Doris M. Hud- 
son as Mrs. Raymond Walker remains with us in a home of her 
own. 

Miss Marion L. Brine at the Village Grammar school is a 
graduate of Bridgewater Normal School. Miss Bertha A. Eis- 
nor, a graduate of the Westneld Normal School last June, opened 
the Plains school in the fall. Both these teachers are interested 
in their classes and are doing all they can to cause suitable condi- 
tions for learning. The learning, whether it be a task or a pleas- 
ure, will have to be done through the willingness of the pupils. 

The committee was able to engage Miss Kathryne Mansfield, 
R. N., of Bondsville, as school nurse. She began her duties here 
dn October. She and the school physician, Dr. Segur, made the 
annual examination of the pupils this fall. Their reports follow. 

At the beginning of the fall term, the "Open Door Language" 
Series superceded the series long in use, and the "Child-Story 
Readers" was introduced as the basal system of reading. 

Your attention is invited to the appended reports. 

Very truly yours, 

ARTHUR W. SMITH

Report of Supervisor of Music 



Westboro, Mass., January 1, 1929 
To the Superintendent of Schools: 

It is not an uncommon thing to hear the remark, "I can't ap- 
preciate classical music." There are many people who make such 
a remark honestly, but the individual is not always at fault. 
Schools, parents, and communities are largely to blame. Any 
child, if taken early enough, can acquire a taste for good music. 
In order to develop this musical taste, or appreciation, we must 
hear it, and if possible, study it. 

The Music Memory Contest does this successfully. That is its 
chief distinction. . It is also the reason for its rapid spread 
throughout the country and universal approval of musical educa- 
tors. The unanimity of the enthusiastic support given by every 
music supervisor who has tested the Music Memory Contest can 
be indicative of only one fact: it works. It does secure this co- 
operation. 

The value of music in education, fortunately, is becoming more 
and more clearly recognized. This is evidenced by the increas- 
ing time being given the subject in the curriculum, the school 
credits for private study being granted in many places, and the 
frequency of the public discussion of the subject. The educa- 
tional value of music is of two kinds, at least, the first as a mind 
trainer — as pointed out by Dr. Charles W. Eliot, President 
Emeritus of Harvard University — and the second, as a means of 
preparation for a broader, fuller, happier life. So it is not best 



55 



for those to say, ''Give me popular music and I'm satisfied. '! 

Today we may sit in our home town theatre, far removed from 
the big musical centers, and see upon the silver screen some of 
our favorite artists and listen to their music. Then the radio, 
what a boon for those of us who live in the far corners of the 
country, isolated from the great cities and musical opportunites. 
We are at least familiar with Dr. Damrosch's radio work and we 
are to hear more from him concerning his ideas for radio music in 
the schools. The United States is honestly desirous of bringing 
to the youth of America that great inspiration and help which 
may come through contact with good things and good people. 

OBJECTIVES IN MUSIC CURRICULUM 

1. Development of pure, beautiful tone (as first essential to 
developing and sentizing the ear) ; guarding and guiding the 
voice ; developing that pleasure in and fondness for beauty in the 
tonal realm which is known as Appreciation of Music. 

2. Development of good singing (technically considered). 

3. Development of knowledge and skill in relation to Sight 
Singing. 

4. Pleasure in music as manifested in reactions in the regu- 
lar music period. 

5. The development of the Social Spirit through music by 
means of choir ensemble. 

6. Enlarged Musical Horizon presented by the Victrola a- 
bout composers and composition not included in the basic school 
music course. 

I feel confident that this summarization of facts presented to 
you gives an adequate reason for music instruction in our schools. 
It is with this purpose in mind that I attend to my duties. 

I am indebted to my superintendent and teachers for their ac- 
curate observation and execution of my Ideal. I extend my most 
grateful thanks to them and the town for its interested support. 

"Music can noble hints impart, 
Engender fury, kindle love, 



56 



With unsuspected eloquence can move 
And manage all the men with secret art." 

— Addison

Report of Superintendent of Schools 



Greenwich. Mass., January 3, 1930 
To the School Committee of Greenwich'. 

I present to you my twelfth annual report. I thank you for 
your confidence and your support of my endeavors for the 
schools during the dozen years nearly completed. 

New portable adjustable desks and swivel chairs combined 
have been placed in the Plains building so that now the children 
there may be properly seated. The portable combinations afford 
very flexible arrangement for school seating, as the teacher is 
enabled to meet various needed changes. 

Miss Marion L. Brine of the Village school resigned at the 
close of the term in June to accept a more advantageous position 
in the eastern part of the state. Miss Ruth H. Pollard, graduate 
of the Worcester Normal School, four years' course, is now in 
charge of the school. 

Music supervisor, Francis J. Gorman, resigned and is now 
supervisor in Ware. Mrs. Feme S. Bacon was engaged to super- 
vise both music and drawing. She makes two trips; one for 
music, one for drawing. Until now we have had no director of 
drawing for several years. 

Because of the destruction by fire of many text books in the su- 
perintendent's omce at North Dana last February, we have had to 
buy an unusual number of new books. It has been to some extent 
a blessing in disguise in that we have more up-to-date books than 
before the fire. 



54 



The superintendent recommends that changes be made in the 
history and civics text books for all the grades next year. If one 
change were made in text books each year, the quality of the texts 
on hand would scarcely keep up with the improvements made in 
school books. 

The work in the schools cannot be carried on so successfully as 
it would be, were not the continually decreasing population with 
its attendant decrease in school membership always before the 
school department. Schemes that require somewhat long con- 
tinued growth in bringing to successful issue have to be aban- 
doned because of uncertainty as to membership and the length of 
time the schools will be continued as they are. A leader has little 
to urge him onward. 

Reports and statistics follow. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ARTHUR W. SMITH 

Superintendent of Schools 



Report of School Nurse 



Mr. Arthur Smith, \ 

Superintendent of Schools 

Dear Sir: 

I hereby submit my report as nurse in the Greenwich schools 
for the year 1929. 

Visits to schools 32 

Visits to homes 17 

Contagious diseases reported : 

Chicken pox 3 

- Individual inspections of pupils were given frequently (hair, 
teeth, hands and general appearance). 

Short talks were given to the pupils on General Hygiene, 
Proper Foods and Balanced Diets. 

The pupils were weighed every two months. This practice is 
not being carried out now because there are no scales in the equip- 
ment. 

At the Child Health Day celebration which was held in May, a 
splendid program was carried out. Child Health Day is that day 
on which pupils in the schools receive recognition for health work 
they have accomplished. The Health Tags whicn were given to 
the pupils on this day were issued by the State Department of 
Health. The requirements were as follows : Weight Tags, to pu- 
pils not more than 20 per cent above or 10 per cent below standard 
weight: Teeth Tags, to those who had received a certificate from a 
dentist ; Posture Tags, to those having good posture while sitting, 






56 



standing and walking. Following is a report of the number of 
tags awarded :

>rt of Suaerintendent of Schools 



I submit herewith for your consideration my first annual report 
as superintendent of schools, together with the reports of the 
school nurse and the supervisor of music, and the usual statistical 
reports. 

In any change of superintendents there are many details for 
the new incumbent to learn. Mr. Arthur W. Smith, who retired 
from this position last summer, was especially kind in giving me 
all the assistance possible so that the change occurred with the 
minimum of difficulty. I appreciate, also, the co-operation 
which teachers and committees have shown, and the cordiality 
with which we have been received in the town of this union. 

Schools opened September 2 with a complete change of teach- 
ers, as you may see in the statistical report. There has been 
little change in the enrollment. The plan of consolidating the 
first four grades at the Plains and the other four grades at the 
Village is working out very well for both pupils and teachers. 

The elementary course of study remains about the same as 
heretofore. Minor changes were made in arithmetic and in spell- 
ing in order to offer a more suitable sequence of material. An 
examination of the history course showed that pupils were getting 
very little background for American history. This condition 
has been remedied by giving more time in the fifth and sixth 
grades to the text, "American Beginnings in Europe." Ameri* 
can history is taught as a distinct subject in the seventh and 
eighth grades, but considerable knowledge of the subject should 



52 



be acquired earlier through reading and through patriotic pro- 
grams. 

Twelve Greenwich pupils are attending the Belchertown High 
School. This seems to be an excellent arrangement. I have 
visited the school and found that the pupils are provided with lib- 
eral opportunities for a high school education. It does not seem 
however, that the scholarship of our group as a whole is commend- 
able. According to reports I received there, a few are doing 
good work while too many others are taking school life in too 
leisurely a manner. Parents and pupils are reminded that suc- 
cess in most high school work depends upon regular and serious 
study outside of school hours. Mathematics and foreign lan- 
guages in particular are not learned in any other way. 

Because of the widely scattered population of this school union 
I have not established regular office hours. When any one 
wishes to see me in regard to school matters or employment cer- 
tificates I shall be glad to make an appointment for a meeting at 
a school building or other convenient place.

Report of Supervisor of Music 



John Philip Sousa, America's premier bandsman and com- 
poser, has recently written that the greatest reason for an edu- 
cation in music is that he has never found any one who has had 
such an education, however small, who has ever regretted having 
it. Good music has been brought so close to the American home 
through the means of the radio that more progress has been made 
in our national musical life in the past decade than in the previ- 
ous two hundred years. Educators everywhere have realized the 
significance of music more than ever before, and nearly ail agree 
with the words of the late President Eliot of Harvard College 
that "Music is the greatest mind trainer of them all." 

The greatest problem which confronted us in September was to 
create an interest in the subject I have been privileged to teach. 
An attempt to accomplish this in a practical way seems to have 
obtained splendid results. Two methods of procedure consisted 
in giving fundamental training on intervals of the scale which is 
after all the basis of all singing, and -by placing carefully each 
voice within a comfortable range. 

We have given particular attention to defective voices and 
have encouraged individual singing to the extent of practically 
one hundred per cent, in the elementary schools. Part singing in 
all classes above the fourth grade has been established, and in one 
class we have been able to establish four part work. 

I was happily surprised at the number of good individual 
voices throughout the district, and would suggest that parents 
bend their energies toward developing and encouraging pupils to 



54 



an interest in music at home as well as at school. 

May I express to the school committee, the superintendent, the 
teachers, and the pupils, my sincere appreciation for the hearty 
co-operation which has made the work for me so enjoyable and 
satisfying.

Report of Superintendent of Schools 



I submit herewith my second annual report as superintendent 
of schools, and am including with mine the reports of the nurse 
and of the supervisor of music. Your attention iis called also to 
the usual statistical reports. That you may judge better the 
most significant figures found there, I present for comparison 
some others: 

School yr. ending '26 '27 '28 '29 '30 '31 Last Term 
Average Mem'ship 59 58 45 32 28 32 32 

Percent Att. 93 93 96 94 93 95 95 

Our two elementary schools are doing very commendable work 
under the direction of Misis Wickham and Miss Gurney. Al- 
though new to us as well as new to the teaching profession, they 
are conducting their schools in a manner which deserves public 
recognition. 

The text books in use are giving general satisfaction. Ad- 
ditional readers were purchased this year for some of the 
grades. Badly worn books have been replaced. The seventh 
and eighth grades have been furnished with a new text in Civ- 
ics, "Active Citizenship," which we hope will be not merely in- 
formational but inspirational as well. Citizenship, like some 
other aims of education, is much more a matter of feeling than 
information. 

Thirteen Greenwich pupils are attending the Belchertown 
High School. Reports from the principal indicate that the pu- 
pils are, in general, making good use of the advantages offered 
there.

This coming year, 1932, there is to be celebrated the two 
hundredth anniversary of the birth of George Washington. 
The celebration is sponsored by the United States Govern- 
ment. Congress has created the United States George Wash- 
ington Bicentennial Commission and the President of the Unit- 
ed States as its chairman. The commission plans for a nation- 
wide series of celebrations in which every state, city, and town, 
every organization, institution, and individual will participate. 
It will last from Washington's Birthday, February 22, to 
Thanksgiving Day, November 24. During that time the 
schools will be called upon to give special prominence to the life 
and character of George Washington, "First in war, first in 
peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen," 

FLAVEL M. GIFFORD 

Superintendent of Schools 



Report of Supervisor of Music 



Each year we lose many of ( our leading voices as was the case 
laist June. In spite of this, I feel that f each school has much 
greater musical capabilities now than at ,the close of 1930. Es- 
pecially satisfying is the attitude of all toward singing, and the 
tavorable reaction toward the theory which is taught. 

Now that we have created a desire to sing, and aie teaching 
the fundamentals which will foster the art of singing, may we 
turn our attention to the quality of music which we present to 
our pupils. If music is to mean anything from an educational 
standpoint, we must present the best, not only in school music 
but in radio and other programs. , We have endeavored, this 
*year, to stimulate greater interest in the many splendid radio 
programs, and 1 suggest that parents encourage their children 
lo listen to the best. 

Many schools equipped with radio are taking advantage of 
the Music Appreciation hour broadcast Friday mornings by the 
National Broadcasting Company under the personal direction 
of 'Dr. Walter Damrosch. Many schools are having piano 
classes with group instruction made possible with a single in- 
strument. In this way thousands of pupils ar», learning the 
fundamentals of piano. Would it be expecting too much to 
imagine in the future, our own schools equipped for these ad- 
ditional musical advantages? 

Music glorifies the Within. Let Music, then, keep burning 
the Httle flame that is born into every child. 

JOHN T. BONpE 

Supervisor of Musi: 



Report of School Nurse 



In September I accepted the position of school nurse. This 
report, therefore, is for the lalst four months of 1931. 

Visits to schools 14 

Visits to homes 1 

Contagious diseases: 

Scabies 1 

Pediculosis 1 

The pupils were weighed twice and inspected twice. In De- 
cember thirty-two pupils were weighed, thirty-one of whom had 
gained in weight. Nutrition authorities advise Us that the 
steady gain in a child's weight should be considered the aim 
rather than that any definite weight be held as correct. 

The pupils have been encouraged to take cod-liver oil during 
the winter months because it confers immunity to respiratory 
infections, and because of its bone and teeth building properties. 
Health instruction has been given the pupils by class-room 
talks and by the distribution of health literature through the 
courtesy of the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. 

The renort of the physical examination given in December 
by Dr. Willard B. Segur. assisted by the school nurse, is as fol- 
lows: 

Number of pupils examined 32 

Number having defects 19 
The following defects were found : 

Nutrition 3 



54 



Teeth 9 

Throat 7 

Nose 1 

Glands 6 

Heart 1 

Skin 1 

Corrections since last physical examination: 

Nutrition 1 

Glands 3 

The parents are urged to consider the notices of the physical 
defects of their children not merely as a recognition of the de- 
fect but rather as a warning of possible future disability if the 
defect is allowed to remain uncorrected. 

I thank you, Mr. Gifford. Dr. Segur. the teachers, and the 
parents whose cooperation and assistance has made possible the 
carrying on of the health program.

Report of Superintendent of Schools 



To the School Committee : 

I submit herewith for your consideration my third annual re- 
port as superintendent of schools. 

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has followed the policy 
of equalizing somewhat the financial burdens due to education. 
When receipts from the Commonwealth and from other sources 
are deducted from the total expenditure, the net cost of schools 
in 1932 is found to be 35,102.03. This is equal to the proceeds 
of a tax rate of $7.42 on the Greenwich valuation of $687,984 as 
established by Chapter 164, Acts of 1932. The corresponding 
rate for Dana is $10.45, and for New Salem $13.49. 

We have been fortunate in retaining for another year our 
teachers, nurse and music supervisor. Work of the pupils is pro- 
gressing very satisfactorily. The enrollment figures show but 
little change. On October 1, 1932, the date on which all Mass- 
achusetts pupils are counted, the enrollment in grades one to 
eight was 8. 0, 8, 1. 4, 4, 4, and 4 respectively, a total of 33 as 
compared with 31a year ago. 

Sixteen Greenwich pupils are attending the Belchertown High 
School. The latest reports sent to me indicate that 4 are rated 
as excellent in Effort, 5 as good, and 7 as fair. About three- 
fourths of the failures occur in the "fair" group. Every effort 
should be made to have as many continue their education as are 
profiting by it. 

During the past year the supply of readers has been materi- 
ally increased. Skill in reading is the key to successful learn- 



h 



ing in many fields as well as a source of pleasure, arid the sub- 
ject should receive great attention. Our next need in text-books 
is the replacement of geographies for which an allowance has 
been made in the estimates for 1933. 

The school rooms were refinished before the opening of school 
in September. The new paint and the neat arrangement of fur- 
niture and decorations by the teachers add much to the attract- 
iveness of the schools. The principle item of maintenance for 
1933 is the need of a new furnace in the grammar school. 

The schools assisted in tne celebration of the George Washing- 
ton Bicentennial by giving special attention to the life and char- 
acter of our first president through essays, stories, note-books, 
pictures and recitations, and in the graduation exercises in June.

Report of Supervisor of Music 



To the Superintendent of Schools: 

The ability to sing is one of the moost enjoyable experiences 
in life. To express one's emotions through song is an experience 
which everyone should enjoy. The man who recognizes only one 
melody, 'The Star Spangled Banner," and that because the aud- 
ience rises when it is played, is indeed to be pitied. The world 
of music with its beauty and inspiration is unknown to this man. 
This should net be true of our children. They must be helped 
to acquire singing ability in order that their lives may be en- 
riched from beginning to end, and each should attain adult life 
with a desire for increasing musical experiences. 

With this ideal in mind we feel that a favorable report on the 
year's work is in order. Individual and group singing is much 
improved, and a marked progress has been made in part singing. 
The musical intelligence of the pupils has developed to such a 
degree that a part of each period can be profitably spent dis- 
cussing the best in music and the lives of world famous musi- 
cians. 

Through the means of this report may I again express my ap- 
preciation of the cooperation extended me in my work throughout 
the entire district.

Supervisor of Music 



Report of School Nurs6 



To the Superintendent of Schools: 

I hereby submit my report as school nurse in the town of 
Greenwich for the year 1932. 

Fifty visits were made to the schools and seven to homes. Only 
one case of contagious disease was reported, a case of scabies. 

The pupils were weighed and were given individual inspection 
five times during the year. All the children showed a normal 
gain in weight. Class-room talks on personal hygiene, food and 
health habits were given. The teachers have a regular morning 
inspection of the pupils, and a definite period is allotted for in- 
struction in health matters. 

In May the annual Child Health Day exercises were held. 
Health Tags issued by the Massachusetts Department of Health 
were awarded as follows : 20 Physically Fit tags to those having 
no physical defects, 1 Teeth tag to a pupil presenting a dental 
certificate, and 11 Improvement tags for improved posture, 
weight, or health habits. 

At the summer round-up in June complete physical examina- 
tions were given to five pre-school children. The parents were 
notified of any defects found. 

In September the Chadwick Clinic gave the Von Pirquet 
tuberculin in the schools to determine whether a child has 
been infected by the tubercle bacillus. No clinical symptoms 
of tuberculosis were found in any of the Greenwich children ex- 
amined. 



54 



In October the annual physical examinations were given by 
the school physician assisted by the school nurse. Of the 32 
pupils examined, five were without defects and four had all de- 
fects corrected since the last examination. The defects found 
were as follows: Teeth 26, ISfose 1, Throat 5, Glands 4, Heart 3. 

In December a dental clinic was held under the auspices of the 
Hampshire County Chapter of the Red Cross. Of the 26 chil- 
dren found with dental defects, 14 received treatment by Dr. 
Glade P. Hall, the clinic dentist. Work done was as follows: 
Cleaning's 7, Fillings 16, Extractions 8 including but one per- 
manent tooth. 

I thank you, Mr. Gifford, Dr. Segur, teachers, parents and 
pupils for the loyal cooperation given me in the health program 
during the past year.
