The finishing touches have been done on the school house floors, the windows have been washed and new books are in readiness for the opening of school next Tuesday at nine o’clock. The forenoon of the opening day in the high school, will be devoted to registration. Regular classes will be held in the afternoon. All classes will meet on the first day for half of the usual class period. A delay has occurred in the changes being made in the Home Economics Department, caused by difficulties in the heating arrangement for the new Home Economics room. However, it is hoped that this room will be ready for occupation before the end of the first week of school.

The school faculty for this year has been completed. Orville Deuel of Greenwood, will again be Principal. The High School faculty will consist of Miss Bertha Bienfang, of Fort Atkinson, English and Latin; Miss Lorraine Sell of Glidden, Home Economics; Miss Beulah Griswold of La Crosse, English, and history; Glen Crowley of River Falls, social science, Robert Davenport of Greenwood, Agriculture; Donald Moore of Darland, science and athletic coach; Harvey Williams of Plamyra, Commercial; and M.G. Hamel of Arpin, band.

The Grade School faculty will include Miss LeNore Bartz of Granton, Grades 1 and 2; Miss Avis Jacobson of Madison, Minnesota, Grades 3 and 4; Miss Ruth Peterson of Prescott, Grades 5 and 6; Howard Jacobson of Greenwood, Grades 7 and 8.

Additional tools have been purchased for the new farm shop which was used for the first time last year. With the additional tools and equipment, the Greenwood High School Farm Shop will be an outstanding class room. The purpose of the farm shop is to teach boys and girls (if they wish) the mechanical skills connected with farming.
