We took a trip to the high school building and visited the office where we met Mr. Curtis and Mrs. Smith. We also took a tour of our grade building and saw the lunch room and 'the rooms where the other children have school. We met their teachers and our custodian so now we feel more at home. We talked about fire drill procedure and then had a fire drill one day so we know how to use our fire escape. First Grade — Mrs. Scheidel Seventeen bright and shiny faces entered this room on August 29. Of these the boys outnumber the girls greatly. We have 12 boys and five girls. In numbers we have practiced writing our numbers correctly to six. Each of us has learned to write our first names correctly. It is sometimes hard for us to remember to keep our tall letters two spaces high and our small letters only one space high. Our ears are working well. We listen for and can hear rhyming words. We each made a doll like ourselves in art. We thought that this was fun. Second Grade — Mrs. McColley Twenty one boys and girls live in our second grade room. We are planting a garden today.
