School Board: Emil Hedquist Director, J.W. Armstrong Clerk. The Close of School. The school is out! The school is out! Proclaim they on and all; The School is out! The merry shout Resounds from room and hall. And bustling here and there they go, A joyous happy band; With hearts and faces all aglow, They take each others hand. And gently murmur out “Adieu!” With many wishes twined, That life may in their pathways strew. Her flow’rs of sweetest kind. The School is out; To some perchance ‘Tis out for evermore; And they must now take up the lance, And ply the lab’ring oar. And in life’s ever warning field. The real life begin, And panoplied with wisdom’s shield Their spurs deserve and win. To others school days are not done, And time with lore unrolled Has just with them his school begun His treasures to unfold. The school is out and now we part. And go our sev’ral ways. To mingle in lifes busy mart, And spend vacation days. But let us all remember well The lessons we’ve been taught; Let’s let our lives their impress tell, And live them as we ought. The old school house will be revered, And to our mem’ries cling, The chart by which our bark was steered When life was in its spring. And teachers who the twigs inclined, And taught them how to grow. Oh dear their mem’ries are enshrined In days of long ago. O Wisdom! Sweet is thy address, Thy wooing never cease, Thy ways are ways of pleasantness, And all thy paths are peace. Thrice happy they who at thy fount, Drink from thy crystal springs. As eagles they shall upward mount, Above all lowly things. The time has come to say farewell For now our term is through. To sound our present school days knell And bid you all adieu.
