School’s Out, 1901

From the April 19, 1901 Skidmore Standard, page 1:

Our school will close one week from today. So far as we can learn, this has been one of the most successful terms of school we have ever had. The principal, and teachers of the other departments, have put forth their best efforts to make it such, and we are glad to say, have not failed in their attempt. The commencement exercises which will be held in Cook’s opera house, Saturday evening, April 27, will be very entertaining as the program is made up of the best talent to be found in the city. There will be an admission fee of 25 and 15 cents. The net proceeds will be used to buy books for the school library. Let yourself be persuaded to go to this entertainment and help a good cause along.
