Sixth Grade Celebrates Spelling Win, 1921

Perhaps we’d all pay better attention to our spelling if we knew a party would be the prize! From the February 17, 1921 Skidmore News (Skidmore, Missouri), page 1:

Sixth Grade Wins Contest.
The sixth grade, being the winners in a spelling contest, conducted by Mrs. Pierce, were delightfully entertained by the fifth grade Saturday afternoon at the Hoblitzell home. Twenty-eight children and four adults were present.

Valentine games were played, and prizes were awarded Margaret Hoblitzell and Virginia Morgan.

Refreshments, furnished by the fifth grade, were served.
