Albert City Marathon Republic (Newspaper) - November 13, 1969, Albert City, Iowa The Marathon Republic and the Albert City Appeal MARATHON, BUENA VISTA COUOTY. IOWA 50565 THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 13, 1Q69 NUMBER 46 Educational Outlook ^ by Nell V. Mansfield ^t was a pleasant experience to receive a letter of commendation from the State Department of Public Instruction on the improvement of our plant facilities and the library advancement. All our teachers are properly certified and state Mproved to teach in their special areas. Marathon has always maintained good discipline in the school system and we plan to continue that philosophy. True, they say, teenagers are different today than a few years ago, but going on the assumption that all of us need disciplining in one way or another. I announced to the students #iat a well educated student, a well mannered student, a well bred student, a student that had respect of his parents, a student that planned on being a good adult citizen, would expect to be required to show respect for the school rules, show respect for the faculty and to do the right thing and if not they could expect to be punished by the Superintendent with a paddle, if that student is in the Elementary Department and if a high school student cnooses not to follow school rules, etc., could expect to be suspended from school and at least one parent to accompany their child to the Superintendent's office on the morning to come back to school. The Board of Education Stet the school day from 8:15 to 3:45 and the students are required to be in regular classes or study hall or a school sponsored activity, if they expect to receive .credit for their classes. No student is to be allowed a work permit from 8:15 to lil?:45. Let us all cooperate, 'hoping we do the right thing for all the students. Marathon students have a lot going for them and I sincerely hope the students respond as ladies and gentlemen and that the parents understand. * State School Boards Convention in Des Moines this week.
