All Schools Show Enrollment Rise The final figures aren't in, but it's very apparent Algona's public school system and St. Cecelia's Academy will both show sizeable increases in enrollment during the 1955-56 school year. • At completion of initial registrations at the Academy Sunday afternoon and evening, 350 grade school and 106 high school students had enrolled for classes which will get underway next Tuesday, Sept. 6. The figure includes more than 70 first grade pupils,, a new high. According to Father Harold Cooper, many children still haven't enrolled, so the final count will be much higher. Supt. O. L. Laing of Algona high school reported a total public school enrollment of 1,396 opening day, but doesn't expect a cessation of registrations until Labor Day. It is estimated the high school will total about 325, the same as last year, with 185 in junior high and over 900 in the grades. The junior high count is up from last year and the kindergarten classes furnish the biggest total in history.
