The schools reopened Monday with a very large attendance.

Among the new teachers this term are Miss Annie L. Johnson, sixth grade, Miss Grace Bothell, fourth grade, Guild school; Miss Gertrude Wilcox, eighth grade, Everett school; Miss Annie Bishop, first grade, West school; Miss Hastings, teacher of mathematics at the High school, in place of Miss Eva Gay, who has resigned to take a position in New Jersey.

Plans for the new eight-room school building in the North district have been prepared and bids will probably be called for in a few days.
The schools have a sufficient supply of anthracite coal to last until January, and the experiment of using soft coal to eke out the supply will be tried.
Special attention will bo paid to the business course in the High school this year. Tins course has proved highly popular with pupils and the school authorities believe that it will prove successful and satisfactory in results.

A department of manual training will be added to the schools here as soon as a proper room can be obtained for fitting up with apparatus, etc.
Some of the schools opened in a badly crowded condition last Monday. In Miss Duncan’s room, first grade at the Guild school, there were seventy children in attendance. In order to temporarily relieve this congestion the school was divided into two sections, half the pupils attending in the morning and half in the afternoon.
