CAROLINE COUNTY.

OFFICE OF THE School BOARD,

Denton, Md., August 15, 1899. Hon. E. B. PRETTYMAN, Secretary State Board of Education,

Baltimore, Md. Dear Sir: We here with submit the Report of the Public Schools of Caroline county for the fiscal year ending July 31, 1899.

The financial condition of our Board is entirely satisfactory; for notwithstanding the fact that during the vear we built and furnished four schwol houses at a cost of three thousand dollars, we are practically free from debt.

We expect to build during the coming year a High School Building for Denton, where the school has outgrown the facilities of the present building, which will be used as a Primary School Building. A lot has been secured for the new building, which will provide six school rooms, an assembly room and a room for a library.

By reference to the statistics of this report it will be found that the number of pupils in the higher grade studies is steadily increasing. There were eight graduates from the County High School at the last commencement, which is the greatest number ever graduated in any year.

Our school work for the past year was seriously embarrassed by the extreme cold weather of the blizzard, numerous school holidays and institute week. It is our opinion that the observance of holidays by closing the schools works harm to public education by temporarily disorganizing the school. The good results of such observance do not at all compensate for the bad effects of suspending the daily routine of school work. Were it mandatory that a portion of each holiday be set apart for carrying out a special programme commendatory of that particular event, it would prove a more worthy observance, and at the same time would avoid the disorganizing influence which closing our schools, even for one day during the school week, engenders.

Respectfully submitted,

Thos. W. JONES, Tresident.
H. F. STEVENS,

H. C. FISHER.
M. B. STEPHENS, Secretary.
