(Miss Johnson) Since we have come to school again after the snow vacation, we have had lots of work to do. Some of us have started new books in reading. One group is talking about Mr. Mac's store.

One day Donna Preuss brought her pet rabbit to school. Her name was Sniffles. We wrote a story about Sniffles. We had lots of fun watching her because she tried to get out of her box. Donna brought snme lettuce and oatmeal for Sniffles to eat. We are all busy getting ready for There is a deep gloom that sometimes enshrouds the human soul. It comes silently, and usually without warning. Like an evening fog it seems to rise out of the marshes and imprison us in its chill tentacles. Men call it by many names. To one it is UNCERTAINTY. To another, WORRY. To the most harassed, FEAR. But always it hides the brightness in life ... and makes us feel the surrounding shadows. ING THE SHADOWS There is a gleam of faith that is capable of penetrating the gloom. It seems to leap time and space to unite the soul with God. Men call it PRAYER. ^ And whether in the quiet of meditation, or in the thrilling unison of a congregation at worship, it pierces life's shadows. It | lights our next step!

Homes, lumber and wood are the topics of our new unit in social studies. We find this unit most interesting. We've had a new student in each of our reading groups.

A movie about how different the homes of people are all over the world introduced us to a new unit in social studies. A small committee has made a fine bulletin board for our room, showing us the lion and lamb of March' on a big calendar. We are anxious to present our part of the Grade Music Program this Friday. We know that everyone attending will enjoy it. Our new bulletin board is overflowing with news items. We are finding out many of the nation wide, world, and local happenings by doing such things as reading magazines and newspaper, listening to radio, listening and watching t. v., and gathering information from, people we know will teU us the right things. Learning to weave has been an interesting project. Some still have to make their small loom, but others are already planning what they're going to do with their products. Fourth Grade.
