On account of the lack of funds school will close a month earlier this year (the 27th of March). The different grades will not be able to finish up all of their work but some arrangement will be made for those who have done satisfactory work to be promoted next year. Parents are urged to cooperate with the teacher in obtaining the best results during the remainder of the term.

Respectfully,
L. J. Stewart, Supt.
