The Superintendents' Message
I wish to use my allotted space in this book to commend and encourage
the new plan of student participation in the affairs of Mineral Wells High
The better Teacher's Colleges, teacher organization, and progressive city
schools are encouraging and fostering these extra-curricular activities because
this form of student participation can be justified on sound educational prin-
ciples. I wish to congratulate the teachers and students on the plan now in
operation in our High School. It has required study and planning upon your
part. You have realized that we could not take over bodily a program which
some other school has developed. You have considered wisely local conditions,
traditions and background in building our program for activities.
I believe that student participation in formulating and solving many of
the school's problems should be a part of the school's positive program. The
students are to be commended for developing the extra-curricular activities from
within and encouraged to continue the program to a more perfect state of de-
velopment. A vital part of our school policy should be to give such leader-
ship that under wise supervision there will exist extra-curricular activities for
every pupil in the school operating under a centralized democratic group of
students and teachers called a council.
The student body may look back on its accomplishment of this year with
a very pardonable and just pride in the fact that it created a valuable tradition
that will be cherished by future students of this school, accompanying this
privilege is the responsibility of actively fostering, promoting, and encour-
aging the continuation of student participation in Mineral Wells High School.
