School Notes - Franklin No. 11
~Postville Herald, Thursday, November 5, 1936; page 7

School opened September seventh with eleven children enrolled. Avis Decker was our only beginner.

Our school room was treated to a fresh coat of paint during vacation which makes it an ideal place to work.

Alice Palmer and Phyllis Ewing were our only visitors. We hope we may have more soon.

We were happy to receive a prize in the Corn Day parade.

We had an enforced vacation of ten days because of scarlet fever. No new cases have developed and we earnestly hope none will.

Friday afternoon, October 30, we had a party with games and a surprise from Miss Beighle.

Several of our young people are practicing for a program. We hope to have it ready shortly before Thanksgiving.

Those earning perfect attendance slips are: Leonard Roffman, Leo Thornton, Avis Decker, Helen Decker, Eileen Livengood, Deloris Ewing, Edna McCracken and John Ewing.

Mirian Bieghle, teacher

School Notes - Franklin No. 11
~Postville Herald, Thursday, October 21, 1937, pg 6

We opened our school year August 30th with an enrollment of nine. We have no beginner, seventh or eighth grades so far this year.

The following pupils have received perfect attendance certificates: Leonard Roffman, Delores Ewing, Gilbert Kurth, John Ewing and Eileen Livengood.

We find only two pupils on the honor roll at the end of the first six weeks. They are Gilbert Kurth and Eileen Livengood. Several others were very close, and will be if they put forth a little more effort next time.

The manual training class is making furniture from orange crates. Leonard Roffman and Gilbert Kurth have completed chairs and Leo Thornton has his chair almost ready to paint too. We are making animals and birds from discarded boxes. We are planning to put all the furniture together and make a play corner. At the end of the year the pupils will take the furniture home after we have enjoyed them together during the year.

Alice Palmer, teacher
