Saturday, March 25 — Class B The Saxons had a word for Spring. It was jcten, shortened, in time, to Lent. |5o the name Lent was given to that spring- i period of 40 fast days from Ash Wednesday |1 Easter. Xent came to mean « time of penitence. And I But it is also a time of preparation, and of nise. For because Lent means Spring, it lids good things to come. It forecasts the glori- Imessage of Easter. It is the dawn of the most [itiful season of the year. The bare branches of these trees will burst 'bud and leaf with the touch of Spring. Our pghts during Lent, our personal preparations, will reach fruition when the 40 days are fugli. tent is the time for prayer and self-examina- ( • Make this Lenten season really mean some- Z by seeking help and guidance at your church [ices. THE CHURCH FOR ALL . . . ALL FOR THE CHURCH The Church is the greatest factor on earth for the building of character and good citircmhip. It ll a itorehouie of spiritual values. Without a strong Church, neither democracy nor civilixa- tion can survive. There are four sound reasons why every person should at. tend scrvicei regularly and support the Church. They are: (I) For his own sake. il) For his childtcn's sake. (3) For the sake of his community and nation. (4) For the soke of the Church itself, which needs his moral and material support. Flan to go to church regularly and read your Bible daily. Day Sunday Mon tiny Tuesiiav Wediirsin!

Tuesday, March 28, 3:40—Classes dismissed for Easter vacation. First Grade. (Mrs. Cordes) Anyone visiting our room on Tuesday would have been surprised to see cowboys and cowgirls instead of flrst-graders. It was dress-up day and all of us wore our very best western outfits. We sat around a "campfire" and sang songs about cowboys. We wore the neck- erchieves we designed with crayons on cloth. We were very proud of our mural, "On the Ranch". The range country background makes a realistic setting for the cook, his fire and chuckwagon. Cowboys can be seen rounding,up cattle for branding. One day we tried out our talents for creative writing. The stories were very good for our first attempt. Some of them fill be print, ed in the cowboy unit booklet we made. We dictated stories, too, for our pictures about life on a ranch. Jim Green and Christine Kittleson brought sets of "Lincoln Logs" and built a ranch scene for us, We also used the logs to make a cabin like the one Abraham Lin coin was born in. Andy Enyart and Danny Ohloff returned their dental cards this week. We have started a new book in reading. It is named "On Cherry Street". Second Grade. (Mrs. Lammert) This week is bundle week. We are bringing used clothes to be sent to children in the mountains who do not have as many clothes as we do. Our bundle bag is getting full, Mary Swenson, reporter. Chuckie's group has finished another reading book. After we take a test we will begin a new reading book. Everyone is excited about the new book. Terry Szabo, re> porter. We are through talking about the Doctor and Nurse but we will continue studying about health. Good food, cleanliness, sleep, exercise and care of teeth are some of the things we are learning about. Joe Harris, reporter. Valentine's Day is coming so we have planned to make a Post Office to sort our valentines. Each one of us will have our mail box which we are making out of shoe boxes. Chuckie Witt, reporter. Several children have been bringing pictures and talking about the monkey that went into space. Joel Overland, reporter. Everyone has been talking about the tuberculin test we will be taking. Monday, February 13. We know it will not hurt. Craig Wander, reporter. After we read a book from cover to cover and tell the story to someone we get a miniature book to put on the bulletin board. Many children have read books. Donnie Martindale, reporter. Fourth Grade. (Miss Camp) We have 100 per cent in our room for pupils taking T. B. tests. Bradley Brainard returned his dental card. We now have 16 cards returned. A valentine's bulletin board was put up. Everyone has their pic-, ture on a heart shape. In social studies we are reading about Seattle. It is a lumbering and Ashing city. News this week was written by Sandra Friederich and Jane Deering. Seven -A. For the past week in exploratory class Mr. Nelson has been teaching the girls about soils and crops. Miss Barton has been showing the boys how to cook and prepare foods in home economics. Poems are being read in literature by the students in Miss Iliffs class. Also in English we have been studying different parts of speech, such as nouns and verbs. Subjects and predicates are also being discussed. Chemical and physical changes and different ways in which they can be prevented and caused are being talked about in Mr. Nalan's science class. After this unit we will be studying about different kinds of fires, and how we use and control them. We had a unit test over Latin America. Many nice booklets were made pertaining to this subject. We are going to be studying about coal next in Mr. Olson's geography class. Jazz, famous composers, and arrangers are being discussed in Miss Pumphrey's music class. In mathematics we are starting a new unit on different kinds of measurements. Mr. Kuhens and students are also studying area and dimensions. Kathy Schrader, reporter. Seven-C. The Seven-C art class is busy looking for scrap materials at home. These materials are being used in making pictures and placing them on boards. Arithmetic class is just completing changing per cents to the nearest tenths, hundredths and thousandths. In English we are going to tell stories that the class will be interested in. We are going on to Unit two in our Doorways to Dis covery, book for reading. Tom Sawyer is one of the characters we will be reading about. We are getting ready for the unit test in science. We are working on the chapter about coals in social studies. James Sanderson, reporter. Eight-A. Our science chapter is entitled "How Do We Control Heat?" It describes the three methods of heat transfer. In social studies we are studying how to the United States recovered after the Civil War, and about the spoils system type of government. We have just finished the first chapter of our algebra book and I think everyone enjoys working with algebraic expressions, like terms, literal numbers, etc. How to write friendly and business letters and ways to make our letters more interesting are some of the things we have been learning in English. "The Funnybone" is the title of our literature chapter. As you can guess from the title it contains some funny and amusing stories, Sue Schroeder, reporter. Elght-B. In exploratory we are giving demonstrations. Some of these Wednesday, February IS, 1961 POSTVILLE (Iowa) HERALD 3 give people something to think about. Seeing the Last Great Frontier is what we are going to be studying in American History. We are going to learn who started the Chisholm Trail, and where it is located. Basketball is our main topic in P. E. We will only have a few more weeks in basketball and then we will probably go on to something else. Arithmetic has been quite in­ teresting, because we are now- learning the different ways itt which we use money. In science we had a unit test cm:.. "How to Control Heat". We are now on the chapter il* English "Manners Plus." I think this a very interesting chapter, because we all can improve our manners in some way or another. Kathryn Schlee, reporter. Efcht-C.
