Room Mothers - 1958

In a report for the end of the year:

....The first combination festival and ice cream social sponsored by both fathers and mothers of the first four grades made a net profit of $325.00. It is interesting to note that this is the first project in Home and School in which husbands and wives participated together, and also the first project with included the entire family. From all reports a good time was had by all and this will undoubtedly become an annual event.

Without room mothers, Home and School could not function. We need and appreciate their help. The job of a room mother could, however, be made easier if more parents, both husbands and wives, would participate and offer their services. The President hopes to start the year with a questionnaire to be sent to all parents asking in which way you can offer your services. Getting acquainted with the parents of your children's classmates will prove beneficial to all. We invite you to join in all the activities and hope to see you next Fall.

Respectfully submitted,
Mrs. Charles F. Shea
