School <rade: O. E. Cowley There were 111 grade childrert (grades I-) who ate lunsh Jn the lunch room last Monday. Of that nUmber there were seven, who did not take milk with the meal. Milk is .furnished in in- dividual cartons. Grade A, homo- genized and pastuerized. We received a bulletin from th Oklahoma State Dental as- THEMILK THAT TASTES LIKE MILK SHOULD TASTE AT YOUR sociation which revealed some startling facts about the care of the teeth. Here is one: Tooth- pastes and powder will not pre- vent tooth decay. They should be considered as aids to clean- ing. That is their purpose--des pite misleading and unw.arranted claims by manufacturers to the contrary. Here is another good quote: Dental decay is the most widespread chronic disease which affects mankind. It occurs in 96 per cent or more of the en- tire population. Dental defects are occurring six times faster than they are being corrected among children. The reason for so much tooth decay is blamed on poor diet of two much sweets. There were 12 girls of tlhe Perkins 4H club that attended the clothing school last week. The director, Miss Allison, demonstrat ed proper methods of making belts and buttonholes. The boys in the grades were absent 139 days and the girls were absent 150 days for the first 12 weeks of school. School will be half over on January 18. Five 4H bOys entered the TV meat judging contest. They are Bill Craft. Bill Harshinan, Jim- mie Eon Loucks, Jimmie Wilson and Larry Spiva. Second Grade We have been taking vca- hu,lary tests. This kind of test shows how well we remember the new words we have had. Some of us need to work on the word list that was sent tome and learn the sight words better. In number work we have been having races telling combina- 00__0000G000CER _ 00'os 9 ur weekly Readers keep us u with the latest news. We read today about many Hun- garian families coming tb America to make their homes. Our Science lessons have sug-I gested making feeding places for our bird friends. Many of the children often put out feed and water for our feathered friends. We shall be looking for the birds to return as soon as warm days comb. o Fourth Grade We hhave a new boy in our roohm He is Emil Ary, who re- cently moved to Perkins from California. We now h_have 37 in our room. Twenty-three of us attended church over the weekend. Sixth SeCeral second grade pupiils wrote letters to children in the sixth grade Monday Nadine Edmondson was ill Monday. We have 42 in our room and all the others were present. In geography we are studying France and its related lands in Africa. We made an ou%line, also ' questions and answers. Friday we finished the unit and had a test. Only one row had perfect at- tendance in church last week. 'This is much lower than usual. Next week will be the end of the first half of school. This means we surely will need to work the last half of school as we need to cover all of our books if possible. Bob Darby's father has been ill but is doing fine now. John Sise visited in Kansas during Christmas vacation. Paula Evans visited Miss Dun- lavy for supper Monday evening. We are ordering junior schol- astic to use for social science studies second semester. The children are loong forward to studying these. First and Second Grade The first and second grade has started reading in their pri- mers. The stories are more in- teresting to us beause we're learn' ing more new words. We. are sorry to have Randy Jarvis ab- sent and hope he is well and back in school this week. It is hard to catch up when we miss a day and we are glad that few of us have been absent this year. The second grade has begun to think abou.t all the helpers in our community. We started with those who carry messages such as post offices and news- papers. We have a play post- office in our room with play money and stamps. The post master gets to cancel, stamp and write postmarks on each letter mailed. His job is a very attractive one so we are learn- in to take turns. We have some good mail carriers to deliver the mail, too. . We are also making posters as we read our health book, "Grow- ing day by day." We have one on what makes a good breakfast, how often to brush our teeth, and when to eat candy and how to play safely on the playgrounds. Oak Grove School News We are happy to be back in school after a weeks Christmas vacation. Each of us had a part in our Christmas program and in decor- atlng our tree which James Net- tles brought us from their farm. Most all of our families were present at the program. Santa %alked to us, asked us what we wanted for Christmas, why we celebrated Christmas, and handed t many nice gifts including sacks of candy, apples and oranges. We were sorry to lose Teddy and rimmy O'Donnell when they moved to Stillwater. The engagementj of Marilyr! McKaughan (a graduate of Oak i Grove) to Larry Ham was an- nounced recently. I We were sorry to read of the I death of Mrs. Loren Gray (Retha I Joan Baker) who was a former II student of Oak Grive. I Our teacher. Mrs. Clark and her ! husband won a nice television lamp during the Merchants draw- ig at Stillwater before Christ- mas. M2rs. O PAggs, mother of R. B. Riggs is seriously ill in the Stillwater hospital. John Elliott's father surprised them flying from California for a visit, the first in 16 years. After tdng our semester tests this week, we found that Bobby Nunn and Danny McKey tied for first place on the honor roll and Darrell and David Aynes tied for second place. Several others made grades almost high enough for the honor roll. Better luck next time! Bobby Nunn made the most headmarks in spelling this six weeks and Billy Human was a close second. Our January parents meeting will be Thursday Evening, Jart- uary I0 at 8 p. m. Films ill be shown on the projector. Refresh- ments will be served Mrs. Anglley and Mrs. Nunn are the refreslt- ment committee. Worthwhile Reading... . . for your whole family in the world-famous pages of The Christian Science Menitor.
