Its spacious and adaptable learning environment encour- a'ges a fluid type of teaching and learning process far learning environment. It can serve as a thrust in moving toward the 1 reality of an education that, truly serves each student in his own pursuit of learning. This is the goal at Happy Hollow School. GERALD HARRIMAN Principal Happy Hollow Elementary School opened its doors for the first time in August of 1972 with an enrollment of 318 students and an instructional staff of 12 classroom teachers, one one- half time materials center director and a part-time music teacher. The expected enrollment for this current year is 330 students. The name was selected because the school is located on the site of the Happy Hollow Farm, owned by the Lighten family. Lighton, a contributor to the Saturday Evening Post, almost single-handedly started a back to the farm movement with his stories of life on the Ozark farm. OPEN SPACE Today the spotlight in education is on the learner. The ultimate goal of American education is to give to every individual the chance to achieve his highest 'potential for living i good rewarding and useful life. The :open space concept was incorporated in building of this school; and it is one of the means for accomplishing thi: goal. Space is provided to foste: an individualized learning en vironment to encourage deve lopment of . special strength and the growth of the talent of each student. The public schools an committed to serving all stu dents, the-gifted,' the average and the less academical! talented. All are importan' Each has the right -to achiey the best he is capable of doing. Denjociacy falls short \ of tlaining its purpose and bur ountry is weaker when even ne person fails to develop to is fullest potential and to use hese skills for worthy pur- oses. In the continuing search for neaps to reach the ultimate joall schools are offering a vide variety of opportunities to hildren, and encouraging an ndependent and open atmos- ihere for learning, ng further ways to motivate -alcnt that might otherwise be undeveloped. Tht- open space school pro- ides this kind of.setting when properly staffed and utilized a student may learn to read, vrite, draw, compute, reason, understand, plan, search, explore and discover at his own jace. Program planning, evaluation are part of developing the open space concept. While the juilding is designed for this ;ype of a program it-takes more han physical environment to actually develop a program which meets the needs of each individual student A team approach is utilized and it takes working with all school personnel who touch the lives of the students to plan and sustain a-program to meet the diverse needs of each student. PUBLIC SUPPORT A ' vital part of this total program is gaining the support and enthusiastic cooperation of parents and other citizens .in the community. The open space school provides an effective A NEW LOCATION FOR FAYETTEVILLE BUSINESS COLLEGE Who Have Many Ways To Declare Your Independence Nowadays, women don't have to be tied to their homes, or settle for the first job that comes along.
