Delbert Scheffert is a new pupil in the fourth grade. The fourth grade pupils are en joying their new books. "Exploring in Science." They are finding many subjects they wish to know more about, so they look them up in our nice set of encyclopaedia for boys and girls, "Britannica„Junior." Yesterday they read about geysers from the books. Fifth and Sixth Grades. Both language classes have been working on correct usage of words, especially words needing helpers and words that stand alone. Grade six is working on a new science unit, "The Ocean is a great Storehouse," and reviewing our last unit. We have had several combination fifth and sixth grade "spelldowns" reviewing all of fifth and sixth gTade words from our speller texts. Basketball. Our male quintet was nosed out in the first round of the Clayton county basketball tournament- in an overtime game with, St. Mary's of Guttenberg.
