Social studies is our next subject and we are learning about the Civil War. All of us had to hand in a booklet on the Civil War. P. E. is our fourth period class and some of us play basketball and some of us have wrestling. Sometimes the wrestlers and basketball players get to play games together. They play us in basketball, and we play them in wrestling. Our fifth period class is study hall and in study hall we do our school work. If we get done ahead of time we can go in the typing room and type awhile. Then we have English, spelling and reading. We are using the card catalogue and using deference books. Spelling is our easiest subject. We do some reading and do a few pages of written work in our reading work book. Arithmetic is our last subject and we are learning about angles and triangles. We are learning that similar triangles have the same shape but are different in size. We just finished the chapter and are going to learn about something else. It is a hard subject, but easy for some of us. Ernie Heins, reporter. This week in science, we have been studying' about molecules and what happens to them in a chemical change. There are three kinds of chemical changes: combination, decomposition, and replacement. Our next period is mathematics. We have just started Unit Five, about measuring numbers. Our next unit is on rectangles. During the fourth period, the boys have basketball or wrestling, while the girls have either P. E. or study hall. After dinner we have English. Miss Pumfrey is our teacher. We are on chapter 23 this week. In reading, we just read a story about a dog, and in English we are studying subjects and predicates. Our next period is social studies, and we have just finished Latin America and have taken a test. Now we are studying about coal. The last period, is study hall, which gives us a chance to do our work so we won't have to take so much home. John Paulsen, reporter.
