schools which are now bursting at the seams was proposed Thursday by the Mason City School Board Voters of Mason City will have opportunity to make the decision Nov 14 the Board decided One bond issue will be submitted to finance a new Washington School and anew Roosevelt Elementary School The Roosevelt building would be classrooms for each grade It would replace the present elementary building which would then accomodate the seventh grade replace Henkel to Build New Hoover School 12 classes from Roosevelt Junior High The new building would be large enough to take care of the greatly increased enrollment which in the June school Washington building relieve pressure for classrooms in MonrtJe Junior High by taking out the kindergarten first second and third grades now is indicated census The would new help in that the one It would condemned and removed and also would take care of some of the increasing ele mentary enrollment Architect Karl Waggoner was in structed to prepare estimates so the size of the bond issue needed may be determined His prelimi nary sketches already are drawn on the two buildings The decision to submit the two buildings to the voters Nov 4 fol lowed a threehour discussion ses sion at which a number of alter natives were suggested to solve the Roosevelt problem The need for the Washington building al ready was established and caused no discussion Discussed for some time was a suggestion to add four or five classrooms to high and build an cxpandible school for two kindergarten three first grade and three second grade classrooms leaving the third fourth fifth and sixth grades in the old Roosevelt Elementary This suggestion was discarded when it was agreed that five class rooms would be only a temporary solution for the junior high Supt Lawrence H Shepoiser then ad vjsed that it would be educationally sound to house the seventh grade in the old elementry building Architect Waggoner added that it seemed more sound financially than to start remodelling the jun ior high school Remodelling he pointed out costs more than to build new the same amount of cubic footage Part of the basis for the boards decision to hurry the conduction of the two elementary schools were the following facts from the school census taken in June 1 142 children between the ages of Z and 6 than there were in the 1950 census This means that there were that many more children who moved into the district than moved out during the last two years 2 370 children between the ages of 0 and 0 than there were of those same ages in the 1952 census 3 number pf children born in 1951 exceeeded the number born in 1947 and for the first five months of 1952 fee birth rate topped either of the other two years for the same period of time Allowing cent to attend parochial schools the projected ele mentary school enrollment for 1957 58 would be exactly 1000 more chil dren than were enrolled in 195152 UC O 5 Bui THE PAPER and chambers of commerce will go to
