Cliffside Fives Busy Practicing
Cliffside, January 17—The Cliffside High School Basketball teams are practicing hard and faithfully under the direction of their coaches and will soon be playing games. There are fifteen good candidates for the boy’s five and their instructor is Mr. C. A. Denson. Miss Ruth Finch, the domestic science teacher, has a large number of girls to work in the court and she hopes to have a sextet which will give a good account of themselves in their games.
Fine School Band
The band of the Cliffside High School is probably the largest of any school in the County. It had twenty-seven pieces and under the able direction of Mr. C. M. Collins, the bandmaster, the students are making rapid progress.
The school orchestra is composed of eleven pieces and plays remarkably well for any student organization. It is being directed by Mr. C. M. Collins and Miss Heafner.
Enrollment Now 702
The total enrollment of the school is now 702 and in the next few weeks it is expected to be increased by 150 to 175, as the homes in Cliffside which are now vacant will soon be filled. Owing to the fine system in operation here, delinquency is practically non-existent.The high schools now begins at eight forty-five o’clock each school day and closes at four in the afternoon. There is a ten minute recess given both in the forenoon and afternoon.
Credit For Work At Home
The students are now being given more credit for all work that is done at home. Of course the certificate of the parents is required. Credit for the physical education work is also allowed. This work is done out of doors in the afternoons under the capable direction of Mr. C. A. Denson. The elementary school has its physical exercises in the mornings.
