'•^^f^m lien PUCE™ 19S2 IN HEW DRIVE Mrs. N..B. Menard Seeking Top Rank in P. T. A. Summer Round Up. After having ranked fifth in the nation lust ytar in the PnreiH- Tpachev Siiinincr Round-Up campaign. -Mrs. N. B. M.:ruird. of this city who is st.itc P. T. A. cliainnun of tills project, is making pans for Arkansas to Ijetlcr this record this year. Awards uiirbc Riven at the ua- lionnl convention in MhincaiMlls in Muy to liiuse associations scor- inc> highest In all the slates. Details of (he 1932 campaign liave not jet l>oen announced other than that registration must be made carjy. 'hfc< Active 1'rogram A plan of procedure wil be mail»'! with the registration blank. Mrs. Mennrd says, which ^ives nil « Atitul!)re regarding the cain- «i"i'n. She is urging that e:ich P. T. A. appoint a commute,? to taJu.' charge of the work, follow Hiro:i«h the summer and check up on it hi ihe fall. The plan for 1M2 has a lv.o fold emphasis nud iccegnltlon will • be based on the proi»it!on of children In the entering class who were examined by a physician and dentist, nncl on the proportion whose parents followed lite recommendations given at tlic spiiny examination. A re-examination in the fall is not rctiuirecl but n check-up imis'. l>e innile lo determine whether the :idvie/> In regard lo inrdlra) nnrt dental aliention has been followed and how far corrections have been made. Registration in the camptiifrn is open to all units affiliated, with 1 tlia National Congress of Parents and Teachers.- This restriction is made, not lo limit the work of prc-school examinations or confine it to any one group, but in order lhat it may be possible lo ascertain the value of such effort by this particular type of organization. While some counties are undertaking the summer round«U as a county-wide project, registration must be mad? by each unit, Mrs. Mciiurd says. Hrips Curb Child Ills 'T'he summer round-up of children was inaugurated by Hie Na t'onftl Congres of Parents nnd Teachers in 1925. H is intended lo rouse parents to their sense responsibility and to bring the ^'ssuio of public opinion to bear ^i the need of providing the schools \vith a.s perfect mnteria' as passible. According lo Mrs. Menard. tlr pre-school period is a crucial time for the child. Many of the ills of later childhood, adolescent nml adult life have tly-ir beginning in the interval between infancy and school age. Thousands of children have defective vision, defective hearing and other defects, many of which may be cured or relieved by early treatment. This summer round-up is not only an rrlucnfiorml project, educators believe, but it is also in their opinion a sound ccononjic procedure for it prevents was(s of educational effort with its attendant cost. Mrs. Menard. in making suggestions to local Parent-Teacher Associations 'Jhv carryii-;? out the campaign, suggests that after the date of the spring examination is decided upon, a committee call upon the parents whose children will enter school the fol lowing term nnd Rive a fill* explanation of the Round Up. At (he time of the examination, time should be allowed for the examining physician nnd d?ntist to discuss the condition of ench child with the parent. While notable progress has b;cn made in conducting the campaign in 1 Arkansas during (he past few y^cars, one of the, points upon ..flinch Mrs. Menard hojies to sec a decided improvement is in the percentage of children cxaniined in each school district. She suggests p. T. A.'s conduct n block to block canvass to find all the children who will enter school and get them to attend the spring i?.x- amination. Shortly after the spring examination this committee in co-oper- alion wilh the public health nurse, should call upon (he parents of children to the family physician nnd dentist 'for further advice and treatment.
