r 4--TIMES-NEWS (Mt. Pulaski, Ill.) THURSDAY, MAY 20, 1971 MRS. BOOTS WlLHAM, 400 North Vine St., was pleasantly surprised by a group of young people on her birthday. Those present were Mary Schroth, Emil John Lynch, Angela Gee, Penny Hatfield, Doughs, Becky, Carol, Marsha, Kathy, Cheryl Schroth, and her daughters, Sandra and Darla Wilham. Refresh. ments were served to the guests. GRADE SCHOOL (Continued from page I) By reducing the amount of space, it is certain that the prent continuous "shift" op- eratlon must continue to serve the lunch program to the pupils of the elementary school com- plex, also it would create addi- tional confir/ement of students during lunch period and likewise provide only temporary solu- tions to the classroom problem. These classrooms will be im- mediately'adjacent to the noise dining areas that the partitioning and physical separation should be of a positive nature rather than of the usual temporary construction type. GENERAL CONCLUSION: It is our opinion that the school district should pursue their proposal to bus students to the Lake Fork Elementary School, which promises (on a temporary basis) adequate facili-" ties for education and food ser- vice (as must be expected by all studentsand PARENTS and tax- payers in the district) while utilizing to the best of the Dis- trict's ability a structure which otherwise has no value to the District. This approach is realistic in that it is the best use of the taxpayer's investment While a bond issue to be presented to the voters will allow for the construction of the necessary added classrooms facilities con- tigous tosthe present elementary school in Mt. Pulaski. These alternate proposals will not be without expense, but perhaps becomes justi- halle so long as it is clearly recognized by all concerned that this is the most direct, immed- iate solution to the overcrowd- ing problem, ff the original pr6- posal to bus the students is met with resistance. I trust that our review of the problem and the several alter- nates is of benefit to the School Board of the Mt. Pulaski Com- munity Consolidated School Dis- trict No. 34 in making a final decon as to the proper dis- thution of students in the com- ing year. Since it does appear that the acc ep, tance of any of the alter- nates would require some im- mediate planned changes and different utilization of your present facility, we are ready and available to assist you in determining the extent of these changes and to begin immed- iately to expedite the needs of the School District.

Fourth grade begins swim pro- gram, chorus, band lessons, etc. same as with the fifth, sixth and seventh. Third grade was chosen be- cause it was the most mature and oldest group of the primary (K-3) children. They have not begun, the more advanced levels of subject matters and program activities which begin with the fourth grade.
