Successful Term For Attendance and Work Done. A brief review of the work and proficiency attained shows that our schools are closing one of the most successful yenra iu their history. in the high school a marked increase iu enrollment over last year is shown, and the popularity of the school is indicated by the number of pupils from outlying districts who by choice prefer to attend the Covina school. During the year a high standard of work has been required and maintained, and (lie small percentage of failures speaks itselt for the proficiency and interest shown by the teachers in the students. The students have also reciprocated the efforts made on their behalf by the teachers by increased interest iu their work. Many who planned short commercial courses have this year changed to the regular four-year course, preparatory to college work. Their interest is beat shown by the fact that many scholars have been willing to come at 8:30 o'clock to secure instruction which could uot, be arranged for at any other time. Among the new courses and departments added daring the year we would,mention.the-tbird year agndif ^r, meohabicHl drawing, orchestra, otiorua choir and hand, all of which have given the Covina schools wide reputation and a high standing among the schools of Southern California. In May, 1906, the debating society of the high school, after meeting a number of defeats, voted to disband, the fall of 11)07, Principal Collins, by timely encouragement, secured a reconsideration of the students' action, since which time tho work of the society has steadily improved, Covina this year defeating some of tho largest bigh schools in tho league--Pomona twice and the Los Angeles Polytechnic once. The school spirit throughout tho year has been excellent and tho students have made for themselves throughout all Southern California reputation for courtesy to their opponents in debate, on tho diamond and track. All credit for tho excellent condition of our schools is duo to the supervising principal, A. H. Collins, and tho corps of olflcient and loyal teachers who havo worked so faithfully during 'ho year. GRAMMAR GRADES. The work ot the grammar grades during tho year also shows excel lent results and Prof. Lcebrick and his teachers aro to bo congratulated. Prof. Leobrick is a young man whoso enthusiasm iu tho work ho ban the happy faculty of imparting alike to the teachers under him and to the students. One notable improve ments during the past year bus been the introduction of departmental work iu the upper grammar grade-, i Tho results from this havo boon stir- prising, proving the tboorv of Hpco- ializiiig. Kvory teacher can impart to tho etude-lit some subject bolter than others through personal pre- foronce for it, hence able, to do the most efrh:ie'it work in thin, their special lino. The introduction of the wood nloyd for tbt; four upper grades ono of tbe most advanced departments of education of tho limes which trains the bauds to do, tho eye t<i M-I;, the brain to estimate and dosigu, IUIH possibly done morn for the. advance incut of tho school than any feature added for many years. It has Loon found to so interest the boys that truancy is a thing of tno past, and it bus also been iiibtr unienlal in *e cm inn a large enrollment in the] upper grades.
