Opened Tuesday, With Large Non-Resident Attendance

Indications Point to Best Year in History of School-Over 200 Pupils Enrolled

Today, Tuesday, the bell of Stamford High School sounded for the first time in ten weeks and the students will return to work after a joyful vacation. The dream of the favorite fishing place and the deep swimming hole will be replaced by the sterner and more exacting rountine [sic] of the school room. The students will return much refreshed and it is believed that students of Stamford Seminary will make a good record during the coming school year.

There are already 90 enrolled in the high school department and 120 in the grades, and it is expected that the complete enrollment will show 115 or more in the high school making the total nearly 250. There are at present 46 non-residents registered and Principal McLaury expects the number to reach 60 before the first term is completed. The total enrollment in the high school department last year was 76.

A class in agriculture will be organized and it is possible that a business course may be introduced.

The faculty this year is as follows: Frank H. McLaury, Ph. B. principal. Latin, Mathematics. A Mynne Benjamin, B. S. Science, Mathematics. Sara L. Bartow, A. B. French, History. Genevieve Jacoby, A. B. German, English. Lillian M. Chase. Training Class. Anna M. McCadden. Sub-Academic Department. Carrie L. Dayger. Grammar Department. Miss Farrell. Intermediate Department. Beatrice Winne.
