Headline: Glenwood School Closes This Week: Eight in Graduating Class; Ten from Grammar Grades May 19, 1927, Vol. 2, No. 13
Vacation days will soon be here—the Glenwood School closes this week. The closing exercises commenced last Sunday night when the Rev. Taylor Stanfiel, Baptist pastor of Arkadelphia, delivered the baccalaureate sermon at the Methodist Church, which was very impressive and convincing.

With a good teaching faculty, the Glenwood School has made good progress this school term, and those who are among the graduates are as follows: Cue Dunlap, Freeman Dunlap, Max Tolleson, Delos McCauley, Victor Logan, Robert Burnham, Irma Y’Blood, Ruby Babbitt. Those graduating from the grammar class are: William Gibbs, Verlie Burk, Odie Ketchen, Elizabeth Theobolt, Marie Butts, Jane Barnett, Edith McWha, Troy Thrash, Seldon Atkins, Harland Sevier.

Commencing Thursday evening the closing exercises of the school will be in order as follows: Thursday evening at 8 p.m., music and expression recital at the Methodist Church; graduating exercises, Friday evening at Missionary Baptist Church. Senior address by Matt L. Ellis, of Henderson Brown College; eighth grade address by C.G. Bolin, County Superintendent; presentation of diplomas by J.E. Pitts, president of the board.

The public school is one of the greatest institutions in America, and in the matter of making provision for the education of the youth of our land, no limit should be placed upon necessary buildings, funds, etc., in order to promote educational progress.

No doubt the members of the teaching faculty of Glenwood school have done their best during this session; and for those who are called to new fields, have our sincere good wishes in their endeavors; and for those who will remain for another term, we wish for them continued success as the guiding spirit in the progress of education.


Headline:  School Not Begin Until Sept. 17th September 6, 1928, Volume 3
In a previous issue of this paper, it was stated that the Glenwood Public Schools would open September 10.  Since that time, due to unavoidable delays in the construction of the new addition to the school building, it has been necessary to postpone the opening of the school year until Sept. 17th.  All parents are respectfully asked to take note of this change in the opening date.

In order to facilitate the classification of high school pupils, all those who expect to be in the ninth grade this year are asked to report at the school building on Sept. 13th at nine o'clock in the morning; those in the tenth grade at 10:30 in the morning; juniors and seniors report at one thirty in the afternoon.  If pupils will comply with this request, it will save valuable time to both pupils and teachers.

Another forward step in the progress of our schools has been made with the re-election of Miss Leslie M. Oates of Russellville to take charge of Expression and allied subjects in the public school.  Miss Oates comes to the Glenwood school most highly recommended.   She was graduated in 1922 from Henderson Brown College with the Bachelor of Oratory degree.  Since that time, she has worked in other institutions.  She has had four years successful experience and everywhere she has worked, her accomplishments have been highly praised.  The community should feel proud to have someone as competent as Miss Oates in this department.

The Expression class will be organized on the same basis as that now employed in music.   Our school is large enough to warrant a large class.  The parents of pupils should take advantage of this opportunity to give their children training in this most valuable field.

Parents who expect to give their children this advantage are urged to have their children enrolled at the very beginning of school.  The department will be self sustaining and must have immediate support to insure success.
