Report of Superintendent of Schools 



To the School Committee: 

1 hereby submit my fourth annual report as superintendent of 
your schools. The work of the year has progressed normally and 
satisfactorily. You will find special reference to the health and 
music programs in the reports of Miss Austin and Mr. Bone. 

The number of pupils remains almost stationary. On October 
1, 1933 the enrollment in grades one to eight was 8, 5, 0, 8, 1, 
2 ,5, and 3 respectively. This is a total of 32, compared with 33 
and 3i in the two years previous. Fourteen pupils are attending 
the Belcaertown high school. Reports sent me indicate that most 
of them are doing creditable work. It is extremely doubtful if 
pupils should be allowed to continue in high school unless they 
are passing in three or more subjects. 

The teachers have been asked to encourage a more general use 
of the library facilities. This is for the purpose of getting the 
children to formulate good habits of reading for pleasure and 
benefit, and to associate the public library in their minds with in- 
teresting books. Some children will use the library without urg- 
ing, while others need encouragement from teachers and parents. 
We want all children from the fourth grade up to do some suita- 
ble outside reading. We are not encouraging high individual 
records. The results of the fall term are gratifying. All Green- 
wich pupils above the third grade read from three to twenty-four 
books, averaging ten each. 



50 



The reading course has been materially improved by the ad- 
dition of science readers in grades one to six. With the enor- 
mous amount of knowledge available in this age, we must intro- 
duce more of it into the lower grades. We must give pupils a 
little less of the make-believe and a little more of the interesting 
and valuable material which will help them understand and ap- 
preciate the world about them.

Report of Supervisor of Music 



To the Superintendent of Schools: 

I am pleased to submit favorable report on the year's work in 
the schools of Greenwich. 

The interest in music manifest at the Village school, which is 
made up of boys with one exception, is especially commendable. 
This improvement has been due in a large measure to the use of 
the piano which we acquired a short time before graduation this 
year. 

It seems fitting at this time to pay tribute to the splendid work 
done at the Plains school, due in a large measure to the conscien- 
tious efforts of Miss Gurney. With such a happy musical ex- 
perience in the lower grades, music itself becomes a definite part 
of the lives of these young people. 

May I express my deep appreciation to all who have helped to 
make this year both successful and pleasant. 

JOHN T. BONE 

Supervisor of Music 



Report of School Nurse 



To the Superintendent of Schools: 

I submit the following report as school nurse in the town of 
Greenwich. 

Forty-three schoolroom visits and five home visits were made 
during 1933. Communicable diseases were reported as follows: 
Pink eye 1, measles 14, impetigo 1, and chicken pox 1. The pu- 
pils were weighed and were given individual inspection five 
times during the year. 

The teachers have a regular morning inspection of pupils, 
and a definite period is allotted for instruction in health mat- 1 
ters. T\ie hand-washing facilities and the simple window-board 
type of ventilation in use are, I believe, to be commended. 

The annual Health Day exercises were held in May. An in- 
teresting feature of the program was the ''House of Health" 
built by the primary children. 

The Health Tags issued by the Massachusetts State Depart- 
ment of Health were awarded to pupils as follows : 

Physically Fit Tags to 13 children of average weight and 

without physical defects. 
Teeth Tags to 5 children having dental certificates. 
Improvement Tags to 18 children for improvement in health 

habits or weight. 



53 



In June the summer-round-up was held. Tnree pupils were 
examined by Dr. Segur, and notices of physical defects were sent 
to parents. Parents were also informed in regard to protective 
immunization and vaccination. 

In October the annual physical examinations were given by 
Dr. Segur, assisted by the school nurse. Thirty-one were ex- 
amined, and thirty were found to have defects. Parents were 
notified of all defects found, which were as follows: Posture 1, 
teeth 24, throat 12, nose 1, glands 6, heart 1. 

In November a dental clinic was held under the auspices of the 
Hampshire County Chapter of the Red Cross, as was done Last 
year. 

The clinic report is as follows: Children examined 28; with 
defective teeth, 24; treated and given dental certificates, 17. 
The work done was as follows: Temporary fillings 2, permanent 
fillings 8, temporary extractions 4, permanent extractions 0, 
cleaning 4. 

I thank you, Mr. Gifford, Dr. Segur, the teachers, and the 
parents who cooperate with me in establishing permanent health, 
the value of which can never be estimated.

Report of Superintendent of Schools 



To the School Committee of Greenwich: 

I desire to submit this my first report as Superintendent of 
Schools in Greenwich. It will be brief, covering as it does but 
four months of the year 1934, with some suggestions as to the 
year just beginning. 

I would call attention to the reports of the School Nurse and 
Music Supervisor, as going more into detail in regard to the 
work of their various departments; and also to the detailed 
statement of School Department expenditures and receipts 
printed in full herewith. 

PERSONNEL 

No change took place during the year 1934 in the regular 
teaching force. This is fortunate because some loss is inevita- 
ble due to readjustments always necessary with personnel 
changes. The Greenwich Village pupils were fortunate in hav- 
ing some special drawing instruction during about half of the 
past year. Mr. Jacob Levenson acted as Art Supervisor and ac- 
complished excellent results in the work, the children benefiting 
greatly by his teaching. 

SCHOOL WORK 
An effort is being made to strengthen the work in English in 
the upper grades. A brief Course of Study in technical gram- 
mar, with an accompanying guide to the Diagram Analysis of 
sentences, has been introduced and should with proper use prove 



48 



helpful in those grades, and by strengthening the ground work 
there, send the pupils on into High School with better prepara- 
tion to cope with all phases of English work in the latter 
school. Courses in the other fundamental subjects will be put 
into use during the present year. ■ ■•■',■ 

HIGH SCHOOL 

One Greenwich pupil is attending the Agricultural Depart- 
ment in New Salem Academy this year, and eleven pupils are 
enrolled in Belchertown High School. The first marking 
period in the latter school, in addition to eleven A's in conduct, 
showed the following distribution: 

Marking ranges 60-69 70-79 80-89 90-100 

Marks 2 4 28 9 

While the above represents only the beginning of the year's 
work, it augurs well for the year as a whole. 

HEALTH 

No phase of school work deserves more careful attention, in 
my opinion, than does the health of the children. Only with 
good health is real happiness possible. Poor teeth, for instance, 
have perhaps caused more discomfort and through that, poor 
school attendance with its consequent interference with good 
school accomplishment, than any other one health factor. Not 
only that, but poor teeth, because of their effect upon personal 
appearance alone, have caused a great deal of unhappiness with 
its resultant feeling of inferiority and loss 1 of self-respect and 
self-confidence on the part of many pupils so afflicted. Dental 
Clinics, Pre-school Clinics, Eye and Ear testing, School Phy- 
sician's and Nurse's examinations, Toxin-Antitoxin and Tuber- 
culin testing take a great deal of time and effort on the part of 
all in any way engaged in their administration, but they are 
all well worth while. I wish to compliment the parents upon the 
way in which they cooperate with us in all these efforts to pro- 
mote the health of the children, and thereby, their happiness 
and success. 



49 



CONCLUSION 

In closing this report, I wish to thank all who are in any way 
connected with the schools for the cordial spirit of cooperation 
shown to the Superintendent of Schools upon his coming, so 
recently a stranger, among you. 

Respectfully submitted, 

WILLIAM A. NICKERSON 

Superintendent of Schools 



Report of Supervisor of Music 



To the Superintendent of Schools: 

The mission of all art is to develop a fineness of feeling and to 
stimulate the highest type of idealism. The development of this 
idealism in each child will make for a better individual and 
thereby a better home and society. 

Music is now recognized as a universal human need because it 
appeals to the qualities that are universal in one's nature. The 
life and happiness of a democracy are dependent upon the ideas 
of its people. Music helps to inculcate idealism, and regenerates 
the spiritual and social life of man. 

Music education of every child should begin with singing. The 
study of a keyed instrument does not require tone thinking, 
whereas singing does. Properly to begin a music education 
should require tone thinking. Singing brings the child into vi- 
tal contact with the art of music. It affords him another medium 
of self expression. 

Many thanks to those who in any way have made the past year 
both pleasant and profitable. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN T. BONE 

Music Supervisor 



Report of School Nurse 



To the Superintendent of Schools: 

I hereby submit my report as school nurse in the town of 
Greenwich for the year of 1934. 

Thirty-eight visits were made to schools and five visits to 
homes. 

Communicable diseases reported: 

Chicken-pox 2 

Mumps 1 

Impetigo 1 

Ring-worm 1 

The pupils were weighed and were given individual health in- 
spection five times during the year. The parents were notified of 
the gain or loss as the case might be. 

Health instructions in matters vital to the welfare of the pupils 
were given by the teachers, assisted by the school nurse. 

In May the annual Child Health Day exercises were held. 
Health tags issued by the Massachusetts Department of Public 
Health were awarded as follows: 

1 1 Physically fit tags to those having no physical defects, 
6 Teeth tags to pupils presenting dental certificates, 
and 16 Improvement tags for improvement in weight, posture 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 the defects found. 



52 



In October the annual physical examinations were given the 
pupils by Dr. Segur, school physician, assisted by the school 
nurse. The report follows: 

Number of pupils examined 28 

Number with defects 19 

Defects found: 

Posture 1 

Teeth 19 

Throat 8 

Nose 1 

Notices of the defects found were sent to the parents. 
In November a dental clinic under the auspices of the Hamp- 
shire County Chapter of the Red Cross was held. Dr. Glade P. 
Hall was the dentist. The clinic report follows: 

Number of children examined 26 

Number of children found with dental defects 19 

Ntimber of children receiving care from clinic dentist 9 

Number of cleanings 2 

Number of fillings 9 

Number of silver nitrate treatments 6 

It is pleasing to note that none of the extractions were perma- 
nent teeth and that denotes fine cooperation in the homes. 

I wish to thank you, Mr. Nickerson, the teachers, parents and 
pupils for cooperation given me in the health program during the 
past year.

School Nurse

Report of Superintendent of Schools 



To the School Committee of Greenwich: 

I desire to submit this, my second annual report as Superin- 
tendent of Schools in Greenwich. Accompanying it will be 
found reports by the School Nurse and Supervisor of Music, 
statistical reports, and a complete statement of School Depart- 
ment expenses and receipts for the entire year. 

A comparison of average memberships in our two schools for 
the past four school years may be of interest and is as follows: 

Sept.— Dec. 
1931-32 1932-33 1933-34 1934-35 1935 
Village 19.11 14.09 972 11.14 7.42 

Plains 12.04 16.93 19.80 15.98 17.72 



31.15 31.02 29.52 27.12 25.14 

The following table shows the cost of elementary school support 
for the fiscal years most nearly corresponding to the above school 
years; and state reimbursements with resultant net cost to the 
town :

While there has been an appreciable reduction in actual school 
costs since 1932, the cost per pupil in net average membership 
for the past school year (1934-1935) was $137. as compared with 
per pupil costs of $109., $125., and $127., in the three preced- 
ing school years, respectively. These increased per capita costs 
for the past school year are due to two factors-; (1) decline in 
membership, and (2) lack of tuition-paying pupils such as state 
wards, there having been no such pupils during the past two 
school years, and therefore no income from that source. 

The tables and other data given above show that, while there 
has been a falling off of 61% in average membership at the Vil- 
lage School, the present membership at the Plains School is a 
little above the average for the past four years. In view of the 
above figures and of the fact that the Village School site in ail 
probability will be taken within the present year into the con- 
struction operations of the Metropolitan Water Commission, it 
seems wise to plan to continue only the Plains School after June. 
1936. Pupils of grades 5, 6, 7, 8 will also be accommodated, at 
the latter school. 

Thirteen Greenwich pupils are now attending High Schools in 
other towns. In September, there were fifteen such pupils enrolled, 
fourteen in Belchertown and one in New Salem. Two pupils, 
Patricia Blanchard and Frank Nicholson, moved away from town 
in November, reducing the number attending Belchertown High 
to twelve — two freshmen, two sophomores, two juniors, four 
seniors, and two post-graduates. 

The distribution of marks attained by these pupils, from Sep- 
tember to December, follow :

Since five of the marks in the lowest brackets were attained by 
but one pupil and the other four by three other pupils, it will be 



51 



seen that almost all of the pupils are doing good and passable 
work. 

Beginning in November, transportation of pupils by the 
School Committee was extended to include, in conformity with 
state requirements, all pupils living more than two miles from 
the schools attended. This move increased the cost of transpor- 
tation furnished to some extent, but is bearing fruit in better at- 
tendance and in a larger measure of comfort in the case of the 
small number of children involved. It seems to be working out 
in a satisfactory manner. 

Early in 1935 a new Music Series (The Music Hour, a Silver, 
Burdett & Co. publication) was put into use in both schools. To 
date it is givingl satisfaction to all, the children, teachers, and to 
Mr. Bone. A number of other text-books including arithmetics 
were purchased to replace old and worn out copies, during the 
year. The arithmetics were new editions of the same book which 
we were already using, The Modern Arithmetic, by Clark-Otis- 
Hatton, a World Book Co. publication. Books are now, with few 
exceptions, in very good condition.

Report of Supervisor of Music 



204 Pleasant St., 
Orange, Mass. 
Jan. 28, 1936 
Dear Mr. N[ickerson: 

Music has been a part of people as far back as records indi- 
cate. In olden days, and to some extent in the present, many 
have thought that musical instruction meant preparing one per- 
son who had special talent in music for that specific phase of the 
art in which that person was most interested. Public school mu- 
sic is for the masses. It is all-inclusive rather than exclusive. 
Music classes have all children just as the other subjects have 
them. There is no aim to make master musicians of all who 
study music. Even the English classes do not make all pupils 
writers or dramatists. We endeavor to teach the child the bii of 
philosophy summed up in the following lines : 

"Use what talent you possess. The woods would be silent if 
no birds sang except those that sing best." 

In spite of the numbers of boys' voices in the Village school. 
all of which are subject to change at any time, I am pleased to 
report much interest and an earnest effort on the part of these 
boys to give of their best. A substantial number coming from 
the Plains school in September has aided materially in accom- 
plishing these results. 

The work at the Plains school continues to go on in a most 
satisfactory manner. 



53 



I feel that the year has been both profitable and pleasant, and 
may I express my appreciation) to all who have made it so. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN T. BONE

Report of School Nurse 



Mr. William Nicker son 
SuferintencL&nt of Schools 
Dear Sir: 

I hereby submit my report as school nurse in the town of 
Greenwich for the year of 1935. 

Visits to schools 42 

Visits to homes 17 

The pupils were weighed five times during the year. The par- 
ents were notified of the gain or loss ofi the children through the 
medium of the weight card. 

Each child was given individual health inspection rive times 
during the year and even more frequently when a condition was 
found which demanded close follow-up on the part of the nurse. 

In May a toxin-anti-toxin clinic for the prevention of diph- 
theria was held at the Greenwich Plains school. Twenty-six 
children were given the three injections. 

In October the Chadwick clinic held a Von Pirquet test to de- 
termine whether the school children had been infected with the 
tubercle bacillus. Then those who reacted positively (there were 
but two) were X-rayed, and if the X-ray proved suspicious a 
thorough physical examination followed. It was found that only 
one child was suspicious of tuberculosis. 

Twenty-three school children and two pre-school children were 
given this test. 



55 



The audiometer, an instrument for testing the hearing with 
the greatest degree of accuracy, was used in the Greenwich 
schools this year. Twenty-seven children were examined and all 
had excellent hearing. 

The annual physical examinations were given the school chil- 
dren by Dr. Segur, school physician, assisted by the school nurse. 
The report was as follows : 

Number of pupils examined 23 

Defects found : 

Throat 6 

Nose 1 

Glands 5 

Heart 1 

A notice of each child's defects was sent the respective parents. 

The school dentist has not yet examined the children's teeth. 

I wish to thank you, Mr. Nickerson, Dr. Segur, the teachers, 
parents, and school children for the loyal cooperation and assist- 
ance given me in the health program. 



Respectfully submitted, 

CATHERINE L. AUSTIN, R. N.

Report of Superintendent of Schools 



To ike School Committee and Citizens of Greenwich : 

I desire to submit this, my third annual report as Superin- 
tendent of Schools in Greenwich, along with reports by the 
School Nurse and Supervisor of Music. Also I submit the usual 
statistical reports of attendance, etc., and a complete financial 
report showing receipts and expenditures by the School Depart- 
ment for the year 1936. 

The period from January to June, inclusive, was uneventful. 
Upon the closing of schools in June, however, the school build- 
ing at the Village was torn down, its site to become a part of 
the construction project. The School Board held a public hear- 
ing for the discussion of school plans for the fall term. The 
consensus of opinion seemed to be that it was advisable to keep 
the necessary school rooms open in Greenwich for the elementary 
children of the town as long as possible. The committee de- 
cided to confer with the Metropolitan District Water Supply 
Commission as to its willingness to prepare a room at thePlaina 
suitable for school purposes. The Commission agreed to pre- 
pare Grange Hall for such a purpose at no expense to the towns- 
people. This was done, and in September all the children were 
housed at the one building at the Plains. This plan has worked 
out in a generally satisfactory manner, grades one to four, in- 
clusive, being taken care of downstairs and grades five, six, 
seven and eight, upstairs, 

Both Miss Margaret E. Gurney and Miss Bessie A. Wickam, 
after five years' successful teaching in Greenwich schools, were 



50 



elected, during- the summer to positions elsewhere. Miss Gur- 
ney went to Clarksburg, Mass., and Miss Wickam to Concord, 
Mass. These two vacancies were filled, respectively, by the e- 
iection of Miss Marion Davis, a graduate of the four-year 
course at Frammgham State Teachers' College, and Miss Ger- 
trude Harty with like training at Fitchburg State Teachers' 
College, both of whom have taken up their work for the Green- 
wich pupils with enthusiasm. 

Three Greenwich boys enrolled in September at New Salem 
Academy, taking the agricultural course there. Two of these 
boys are undergraduates and one is enrolled as a postgraduate. 
There are six boys and girls enrolled as undergraduates at Bel- 
cher town High, two of whom will graduate in June, and one 
girl doing postgraduate work. 

A new History series was introduced in grades five, six, sev- 
en and eight, in September. These replace (or rather, supple- 
ment) "Essentials in American History," by Evans, a book long 
in use in Greenwich. The new series consists of two books, one, 
"From Then Until Now," by Greenan and Cottrell, for grades 
five and six, and the second, "Our American Heritage," by 
Coyle and Evans, for grades seven and eight. It is, perhaps, 
too early to draw conclusions as to their effectiveness, but their 
style and subject-matter seem to have an appeal for the students. 

In conclusion, I wish to thank the committee, the teachers, 
and all who have in any way aided our schools to attain a 
measure of success during the past year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

(Signed) WM. A. NICKERSON, 

Suferintende/it of Schools 



Report of Supervisor of Music 



To the Superintendent of Schools: 

The unsettled conditions in the valley naturally reflect them- 
selves in our school work. The continually decreasing popula- 
tion and the attendant decrease in membership makes our work 
in music somewhat more individual than collective. However, 
the results of this work at graduation time were, we believe, 
highly commendable. 

In September of this year we introduced classes in piano 
playing, a plan which has been successful and adopted by 
many school systems all over the country. The class lesson is 
not intended to take the place of individual lessons on this, the 
basic of all instruments. It does, however, give parents an in- 
expensive way of ascertaining the musical desires and capabil- 
ities of their children. The plan requires the pupil to pay a 
modest fee for each lesson. Some have already availed them- 
selves of this plan, and it is hoped that more will do so in the 
near future. As yet we have not required the added expense 
of purchasing study books and other material, but would sug- 
gest that as soon as the pupil shows sufficient interest, the add- 
ed expense of this material is recommended. We should be 
glad to confer further with parents interested in this plan. 

The pupil of tomorrow will be confronted with the problem 
of much leisure time. What he does in this leisure time will 
have just as much to do with determining what he becomes and 
his value to the state, as what he may do during his work hours. 



52 



May I suggest increased activities in things of a musical na- 
ture as one answer to this apparent problem of the future? 
My sincere thanks to all for continued cooperation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN T. BONE 



Report of School Nurse 



Mr. William Nicker son 
Suferintendent of Schools 
Dear Sir: 

I hereby submit my report as substitute school nurse in the 
town of Greenwich from Oct. 1, 1936 to Jan. 8, 1937. 
School Visits 7 

Home Visits 5 

A complete physical examination had been given by Dr 
Segur, the school physician, in September, assisted by Miss Aus- 
tin. The children were weighed and measured twice since Oc- 
tober. Health talks were given on personal cleanliness, the im- 
portance of good posture, rest and diet. 

AH of the children were given individual health inspection. 
Home visits were made to children who were ill, and also when 
a chiJd came to school in an unsatisfactory manner. 

A. number of children are taking cod liver oil during the win- 
ter months and seem to be profiting by it. The children weie 
all urged to take C. L. O., if possible. 

No contagion since October 1 has been reported, which is very 
satisfying. 

I wish to thank Mr. Nickerson, Dr. Segur, the teachers, par- 
ents and pupils who have contributed in making the health pro- 
gram more successful. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CATHERINE B NICHOLS, R. N., 

School Nurse

Report of Superintendent of Schools 



To the School Committee and Citizens of Greenwich: 

The following is my fourth annual report as superintendent of 
Schools m Greenwich. Accompanying it are the reports of the 
School Nurse and Supervisor of Music, and also the usual finan- 
cial and statistical reports. 

HOUSING 

Grange Hall has worked out fairly satisfactorily as a class 
room, and having all the elementary pupils in one building has 
been a distinct benefit to all the pupils from a social point of 
view, as well as in the regular conduct of the school. 

THE TEACHERS 
Both the Misses Marion Davis and Gertrude Harty resigned 
in June after one year of good service, to accept positions in 
other school systems, the former in Stoughton and the latter in 
Pelham. Miss Helen B. McMullen, of Newton, a graduate of 
Framingham State Teachers' College, was elected to fill the po- 
sition made vacant by the resignation of Miss Davis, and Miss 
Ann Connor, of Holyoke, a graduate of Westfield State Teach- 
ers' College, was elected to succeed Miss Harty. Both began 
work in September. 

HIGH SCHOOL PUPILS 

Greenwich pupils enrolled in various High Schools this year 
are as follows : 



48 



Elmer Thresher Sophomore New Salem Academy 

Robert Johnston Senior Belchertown High 

Raymond Johnston Senior Belchertown High 

Donald Walker Junior Belchertown High 

Robert Doubleday Freshman Belchertown High 

Elwyn Doubleday Post Graduate Belchertown High 

Lois Doubleday Post Graduate Amherst High 

I believe that all of these pupils are profiting by the opportu- 
nities offered them of securing a high school education. I be- 
lieve, too, that the two pupils taking post-graduate work at Bel- 
chertown High and Amherst High, respectively, are worthy of 
special commendation, an opinion based on comments made by 
the principals of the two schools. 

CONCLUSION 

A^t the time of writing this report, it looks as if said report 
may be the last to be written by a superintendent of schools, as 
such, in Greenwich. For this reason and for other more personal 
ones, I wish to thank everyone connected with the schools, com- 
mittee members, parents, teachers, and pupils, for their uniform 
courtesy to, and cooperation with the present superintendent. I 
wish also to commend the townspeople for the interest which they 
Jiave apparently always taken in their schools, and in the prog- 
ress and physical, mental, and moral welfare of the pupils — 
their children. 

My good wishes to all for the future. 

Respectfully submitted, 

WILLIAM A. NICKERSON, 

Superi?itendent of Schools 



Report of Supervisor of Music 



To the Superintendent of Schools: 

We are approaching the turn of a century of public school 
music in the United States, it being just ninety-nine years since 
Lowell Mason, noted educator and musician, introduced the 
study of music into the public schools at Boston. The movement, 
then on trial, spread rapidly to other cities and finally to smaller 
communities. Today, everyone believes that music contributes 
to finer living. And everyone agrees that the children of rural 
communities deserve all the advantages which today are offered 
in city schools. 

The day of isolation of rural communities is past. Good 
roads, modern transportation, telephones, and the radio have 
brought all parts of the country into neighborly proximity. Ed- 
ucators are studying the contribution of the various school sub- 
jects to better living. Among these subjects, music takes an im- 
portant place and one which educators now recognize as essential 
to modern school life. Our schools are finding the music lesson 
one of the chief joys and inspirations of the day. 

In its last analysis, the value of music in the school may be 
measured to a considerable degree by the effect it has on the 
whole community. His music studies are of slight worth to the 
child unless he grows to feel that music is an interesting and en- 
joyable part of life, associated with his deeper life experiences, 
enriching them, and enlarging and refining his emotional re- 



50 



actions to the world about him. 

Our objective in the schools in Greenwich has been to contrib- 
ute our very best to develop this very feeling toward music. 
The townspeople have had opportunity to be the judges of these 
results from the various public appearances made by the chil- 
dren, and we are very grateful for the helpful comments re-» 
ceived. 

In closing I wish to express my appreciation to all who have 
helped in any way to make my term as music supervisior in the 
Town of Greenwich both profitable and pleasant. 

Respectfully submitted, 

JOHN T. BONE, 

Sufervisor of Music 



Report of School Nurse 



Mr. William A. Nicker son, 
Superintendent of Schools, 
Greenwich-, Massachusetts. 

My dear Mr. Nicker son: 

I ubmit the following report as school nurse in Greenwich for 
the year of 1937. 

Visits to schools 21 

Visits to homes 15 

Skin diseases reported : 

Scabies 1 

This year for the first time no annual summer round-up was 
held in Greenwich, due to the fact that there were no children 
entering the first grade in September in this town. 

In July, the annual dental clinic was held for pupils in Green- 
wich. Dr. Glade P. Hall was the school dentist. The report fol- 
lows: 

Pupils examined 24 

Number without defects 6 

Number attending clinic 2 

Number fillings, permanent 10 

Cleanings 2 

The annual physical examinations were given the pupils by 
the school physician, Dr. Willard B. Segur. Report follows: 



52 



Number of children examined 25 

Number of children without defects 9 

Number of children with all defects corrected 

since last examination 3 

Defects found : 

Teeth 5 

Nose 1 

Throat 5 

Glands 3 

A new form of physical defect notice, recommended by the 
State Department of Public Health, has been sent to the parents. 
This type of form has the advantage of allowing the parents to 
secure recommendations from the nurse or school physician, Dr. 
Willard B. Segur, and give the nurse information concerning 
what action on the defect found the parents plan to take. Al- 
so, new forms for the physical defects of the pupils in each 
classroom have been given every teacher so that they might bet- 
ter know the physical status of the pupils. The individual pu- 
pil's physical record forms furnished by the State do not permit 
a full report of the home visits made by the school nurse to the 
child. In order that there might be a continuity of health edu- 
cation in every visit the nurse makes to various homes a new 
type of report, the "Family Folder System" is being used. 

A daily hot dish is served by the teachers in the Greenwich 
schools to supplement the lunches brought from home by the 
pupils. 

Health instructions are given regularly to the pupils by the 
teacher assisted by the school nurse. 

Many of the valuable improvements in the health program 
during the past year could not possibly have been achieved were 
it not for the assistance, the cooperation, and support of all in- 
dividuals connected with the school personnel. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CATHERINE LUCILLE AUSTIN, R. N.
