A LOOK AT JUNIOR HIGH
Present enrollment figures for
Refugio Junior High show the to-
tal enrollment to be 320 pupils
which is an increase of 9 over last
year. This is broken down as fol-
lows: sixth grade — 112, seventh
grade — 102, eighth grade — 106.
The daily schedule is divided in-
to seven periods of 55 minutes
plus a 30 minute homeroom per-
iod. During six of these periods
all students take language arts,
physical eduation. Choir is also
math, science, social studies, and
physical education choir is also
offered to all pupils four days
each week during the homeroom
period. The period remaining is
spent in band, art and writing, and
developmental reading classes.
Since art, writing, and develop-
dental reading are relatively new
to our curriculum they are des-
cribed briefly below.
Creative writing is designed to
help develop creative thinking. All
students have ideas of their own
but unless these thoughts and
ideas are drawn out and express-
ed they are of little value. Stu-
dents are stimulated by pictures,
objets, music, sounds, given ti-
tles, nd many other ways.
Art has many phases and is also
an expressive course. The child
paints and draws as he sees and
feels. To develop artistic ability,
however, takes miuch practice and
effort. A few art activities include
painting with tempera, pencil
charcoal, pen and ink, chalk, and
watercolors. Also mural painting,
lettering, block printing, spatter
painting and many others.
With a new emphasis on react-
ing, this developmental reading
program was added to the curri-
ulum. The term “developmental’”
implies presentation, reteacli-
ing and testing of skills at higher,
levels of achievement. This pro-
gram embraces the skills which
would enable students to want to
read. The child who likes to read
is seldom the one with reading
difficulties. Likewise, the child
who does not like to read usually
has reading problems. All instruc-
tion given in this program is giv-
en with one objective in mind—
to foster love of and enthusiasm
for reading. The success of the
entire program hinges on the at-
tainment of this objective.
Excellent library facilities are
available to all students. The li-
brary is the one place that every
child visits at least once a week
some several times each week..
Here books are circulated, pro-
jects discussed and worked on, re-
ference work done, and courses;
in the use of the library present-
The library has 2,500 volumes
on the general shelves and 350
volumes of reference books. Theie
receive wide use by students and
teachers. Last year 12,000 volumes;
were circulated to 310 students.
An added incentive to encourage
students to read is a reading cer-
tificate given to those who read;
and report on at least ten books
a year in certain designated areas.
Last year over 100 students earn-
ed this award.
The oldest ship in the present
U. S. Navy, built in 1779 (the
Constellation) is being put on per-
manent display at Baltimore.
