THE BOOK OF THE SANDY CREEK HIGH SCHOOL 



General Information 



History 

In 1871 School Districts Nos. 9 and 10 of the town of 
Sandy Creek were consolidated and organized as a Union 
Free School District. A new building was erected in which 
school opened in 1872, the school buildings of the former 
districts being retained as Primaries. The following year 
an Academic Department was added and admitted to the 
rights and privileges of the University of the State of New 
York. In 1896 the Academic Department was organized as 
a High School, and as such has made a very creditable 
record. 

Location 

Sandy Creek High School is located midway between 
Sandy Creek and Lacona, Oswego County, New York. 
Both of these villages have pleasant, shaded streets, broad 
walks, and well kept churches, homes and business places. 
Each has a good water supply, and an abundance of 
natural gas for heating and lighting purposes. The school 
is easily accessible by the Ontario Division of the New 
York Central & Hudson River Railroad. 

Campus 

A large campus surrounds the High School building. 
In front is a well kept lawn witb shaded walks and drive. 
The athletic field at the east and north, is well fitted for 
baseball and football, and has a commodious grandstand 
for the accommodation of those who care to witness the 
sports. 

Buildings 

To meet the demand for more room, a new building 
has been erected for the sole use of the Academic Depart- 
ment. This building is constructed of hollow tile, a ma- 
terial which is being used extensively in Germany and 
which has shown remarkable power to maintain equable 
temperatures both in winter and summer. 

The first floor contains commodious recitation rooms 



THE BOOK OP THE SANDY CREEK HIGH SCHOOL 



and the second floor contains a large assembly hall, a 
library and the office of the Principal. 

The new building, together with the present building, 
which has been remodelled for the use of the grades, will 
provide facilities second to none in this section. 



Aim 

The design of the school is to develop pupils into 
strong men and women and to furnish them with the ne- 
cessary preparation for entering the higher institutions of 
learning, the teaching profession or practical business life- 
It also aims to inculcate habits of promptness, industry, 
honesty, and, in general, to foster all that makes for right 
living. 

Non-resident Pupils 

Non-resident students will find exceptional advan- 
tages in Sandy Creek High School. Its courses of study 
are broad in scope and unsurpassed in efficiency. It has 
a strong teaching force with a sufficient number of teach- 
ers to make much individual help and direction possible. 
Moreover, under the State Non-resident Tuition Act, stu- 
dents from schools having no academic department may 
receive free tuition in Sandy Creek High School if they 
hold a Regents pre-academic certificate or its equivalent. 
Persons interested should address Mr. Roscoe Sargent, 
Secretary of the Board of Education, or the Principal. 
Board, both in Sandy Creek and Lacona, is reasonable in 
price, and the train service in each direction is satisfac- 
tory. 

Courses of Study 

The three courses of study, outlined below, have been 
approved by the State Education Department, and adopted 
by the Board of Education. The first two courses prepare 
a student for any of the best colleges; the third is de- 
signed to prepare students for Normal schools and to 



THE BOOK OF THE SANDY CREEK HIGH SCHOOL 



furnish students, whose scholastic training ends with the 
completion of their High school course, a well rounded 
education. Upon entering the High School, pupils are, 
with the aid of the Principal, to choose one of these three 
courses, and when a course has once been chosen it is to 
be followed unless satisfactory reasons can be given for a 
change. Substitutions will be allowed when the Principal 
believes it advisable. 



Courses of Study Detailed 

The figures opposite the subjects indicate the number 
of recitations per week for one year and also the number 
of counts to be earned thereby.

Training Class 

A Training Class will be organized at the opening of 
the school year under the supervision of an experienced 
instructor. 

The course consists of three distinct lines of work. 
Definite instruction is given in all subjects taught in ele- 
mentary schools together with the pedagogical principles 
requisite for a skillful imparting of the same. Two periods 
each week are given up to systematic observation work in 
the various grades and the High School, these periods be- 
ing followed by periods of discussion whereby the instruc- 
tor finds opportunity to emphasize points observed which 
make for good teaching. Training Class students are al- 
so given opportunity to do actual work in teaching under 
the direct supervision of the instructor or the regular 
teacher. Under certain conditions, Training Class students 
can receive credit for one year of academic work, thereby 
earning both an Academic Diploma and a Training Class 
certificate in four years. 

A candidate for entrance to Training Class must be at 
least seventeen years of age and must hold as a minimum 
qualification one of the following: 

(a) Any teacher's certificate, expired or unexpired., is- 
sued in this State. 

(b) A passing mark in Regents examinations in read- 
ing, writing, spelling, arithmetic, geography, elementary 
United States history and civics, and 54 academic counts 
including 10 counts in English, 10 in science, 10 in mathe- 
matics, 5 in history, 4 in drawing and 15 optional. 

The course of study is given below:

Entrance to Grades 

Pupils will be received in the first primary grades only 
at the beginning of the school year. Admission to the 
other grades and classes is granted at any time provided 
that the student is qualified to pursue the work of the class 
in which he asks admission. If at any time it is clearly 
shown that a pupil is unable to do the work of the class in 
which he has been placed, the grading of such pupil will be 
changed immediately. Pupils entering this school for the 
first time must present themselves to the Principal for 
classification. 

Grade Promotions 

Examinations are held in all grades above the second 
at the end of each term. A record of the class work of the 
pupils during the year is also kept. This, together with 
frequent tests and the term examinations, is the basis of 
promotion in the various grades, the class average count- 
ing for two-thirds and the examinations for one-third of 
the general average. The minimum standing for promo- 
tion, thus computed, is an average of 759? for the year with 
no subject below 60^ . Promotions are made only at the 
end of the school year and are under the supervision of the 
Principal. 

During the coming year manual work will be intro- 
duced into all grades, the boys taking sloyd, and the girls 
sewing and basketry. 

The School Year 

The school year consists of two terms of twenty weeks 
each. That no class may be delayed by those who enter late 
in the school year and that the greatest possible efficiency 
may be obtained, students should be present for registra- 
tion and class organization at the opening session. The 



THE BOOK OF THE SANDY CREEK HIGH SCHOOL 11 

two daily sessions shall be as follows: 9 A. M. to 12 M., 
1:15 to 3:45 P. M. 

Attendance and Excuses 

In order to secure the best possible results in school 
work students should be regular in attendance. One day's 
absence usually results in a greater or less failure the day 
following. Excuses, certified by the parent in writing, will 
be accepted when the cause of absence is sickness of the 
pupil, sickness or affliction in the family, or urgent neces- 
sity. The compulsory education law recognizes no other 
excuses. Parents are urged to co-operate with teachers 
as far as possible in securing prompt and regular attend- 
ance and a reasonable amount of home study. 

Library and Reading Course 

The school possesses a carefully selected library of a 
thousand volumes embracing history, biography, science, 
travel, fiction and poetry, besides encyclopaedias,, diction- 
aries, and other reference books. Valuable additions were 
made to it during the past year. To broaden the general 
education of the pupils and to assist in their school work, 
parents are urged to encourage their children in reading 
books which may be regularly drawn from the school li- 
brary. The teachers will gladly aid in the selection of 
books. In addition to the general library, adequate grade 
libraries are in all of the rooms for the use of pupils in 
their respective grades. A reading table is in the High 
School library where several of the best periodicals may 
be consulted. 

Those on the files at present are : The Literary Digest, 
The Technical World, The Cornell Countryman. Youth's 
Companion, Review of Reviews, Normal Instructor, Inde- 
pendent, and others. 



Annual School Exhibit 

In order that the patrons of the school and parents 
may be better enabled to judge of the work done by the 
students, a general exhibit of work from each of the re- 



12 THE BOOK OF THE SANDY CREEK HIGH SCHOOL 



spective grades and the High School is held annually in 
connection with the Arbor Day exercises. These exhibits 
are becoming more and more a feature of the school. 

Athletics 

Sandy Creek High School makes much of its athletics. 
Physical training, higher scholastic standards, more tegu- 
lar attendance, fair dealing and self control are some of 
the advantages derived from athletic contests. 

The qualification adopted for membership on any team 
representing the High School for 1916-1917, is an average 
standing of not less than 75% in scholarship, attendance 
and deportment. 

Examinations in the High School 

Although the passing of Regents examinations is ac- 
cepted as evidence of the pupil's knowledge of a subject 
and is necessary to his progress toward the completion of 
his course of study, yet it will be recognized that the acqui- 
sition of knowledge, the thorough mastery of the subject 
and the power thus gained are far higher motives for 
study. These can come only from faithful, daily attention 
to study and preparation of work. This done, the examina- 
tion need cause no fear or worry. To this end no pupil will 
be permitted to enter any Regents examination in any sub- 
ject who has not in the judgment of the Principal and 
teacher in charge reached a general average of 65%. In 
order to test the thoroughness of the pupil's daily prepara- 
tion and as a basis on which to determine this general 
average the teachers of the High School are required to 
give to each class regular tests every ten weeks. These, 
together with the class standing, determine the pupil's 
average, the plan being to allow class standing to count 
for two-thirds, the quarterly average and the regular 
tests one-third. 



THE BOOK OF THE SANDY CREEK HIGH SCHOOL 13 



Tuition 

For non-resident students not possessing a Prelimin- 
ary Certificate or its equivalent, and for students in de- 
partments other than the Academic, the following charges 
will be made for tuition: 

Grades 1-4 $ 9.00 a year; $4.50 a term 

Grades 5-6 12.00 a year; 6.00 a term 

Grades 7-8 15.00 a year; 7.50 a term 

Report Cards 

Parents should give close attention to the regular re- 
port cards which show the progress of the pupil. These 
must be signed by the parent and returned by the pupils as 
soon as convenient. 

Graduation 

A Regents Diploma is made the basis of graduation. 
Any student who successfully completes one of the Aca- 
demic courses will be graduated and will receive a diploma 
from the school. No student will be graduated condition- 
ally. 

Appearance at the Commencement exercises is requir- 
ed of all graduates unless excused by the Board of Educa- 
tion for good cause. No diploma will be granted without 
such appearance. The Commencement exercises will be 
free to the public. 

The following regulations have been adopted by the 
Board of Education. 

Resolved that: 

1. No student shall be eligible to membership in the senior class 
except upon recommendation of the faculty. 

2. No student shall receive the diploma of this school who shall 
not have earned at least 72 counts, including those required by the 
State Education Department. 

3. A statement of the number of counts required for graduation 
shall be printed upon the commencement program and the number of 
counts earned by each student shall be printed thereon opposite the 
name. 



14 THE BOOK OF THE SANDY CREEK HIGH SCHOOL 



4. A candidate for graduation, who, having failed to earn 72 counts 
shall subsequently remove all conditions, shall thereupon be granted 
the diploma of this school. 

5. No student shall be considered an alumnus of Sandy Creek High 
School until he shall have received the diploma of the school duly 
signed. 

6. The requirements for graduation from this school shall at all 
times conform to the requirements of the State Education Department 
for the Regents Academic Diploma. 



General Merit Prize 

A cash prize of ten dollars in gold will be given by 
the Board of Education to the Academic student who, dur- 
ing the year, displays the most character in scholarship, 
deportment, determination in mastering difficulties in the 
way of acquiring an education, attitude toward fellow stu- 
dents and teachers, and in all ways in which character can 
be shown. All other things being equal a student who is 
about to graduate will receive the money. It is the inten- 
tion of the Board of Education to offer these prizes from 
year to year. This prize was awarded in 1903 to Eva A. 
Tanner; in 1904 to Luella DeLavergne; in 1905 to LeRoy 
Enders; in 1906 to Alta Cook; in 1907 to Bertha Marian 
Van Slyke; in 1908 to Harry E. Lester; in 1909 to Mabel 
E. MacNitt; in 1910 to Bessie Beach; in 1911 to Florence 
H. Greenfield; in 1912 to Lois Cox; in 1913 to Ahava J. 
Crandall; in 1914 to Marion L. Edgett; in 1915 to Mary A. 
Donahue. 

All-*)*:.' Association 

The Alumni Association is an organization of gradu- 
ates of the High School formed to promote the interests 
of Alma Mater. The efforts of this group of loyal support- 
ers have been of great value to the school. This society 
holds its annual banquet during Commencement week. 

Entrance to Colleges 

Most colleges will accept the certificate of the Principal 
of this school, in so far as such certificate covers the re- 
quirements for admission. Students, however, are in some 
colleges examined as to their proficiency in English. 



THE BOOK OF THE SANDY CREEK HIGH SCHOOL 15 



Entrance to Normal Schools 

Graduates from this school, possessing a Regents 
Academic Diploma based upon the completion of the 
Normal Entrance course, may enter any of the Normal 
schools of the State, without examination, with the pos- 
sibility of completing the Normal course in two years. 

State Scholarship for Cornell 

Cornell University has free State scholarships, one 
for each assembly district. These scholarships entitle the 
holder to free tuition for four years and are awarded each 
year to students in the State in the following manner: 

1. The candidate must attain the highest average of 
any student in his own assembly district in English, arith- 
metic, algebra, plane geometry, Latin or French or Ger- 
man. 

2. The candidate must be sixteen years old and must 
have attended a "common school or Academy of that 
State" at least six months during the year preceding the 
examination. 

3. The competitive examination is held in each 
county, on the first Saturday in June each year, the Educa- 
tion Department furnishing the questions. After scholar- 
ships have been awarded those having passed the highest 
examination, the names of candidates standing next high- 
est are arranged in order of merit, and appointments are 
made from this list to fill vacancies in counties where no 
candidates were examined. 

This scholarship was awarded in 1910 to William A. 
Prescott of Sandy Creek High School, he having secured 
the highest standing of any student from this county since 
the institution of the scholarship.

Academic Department — Outline of Work 

Mathematics 

A practical business training and the development of 
i tie mental faculties are the aims of this course. A knowl- 
edge Of underlying principles, clearness of expression, 
accuracy and speed will be constantly sought. 

English 

The course in English is designed to teach pupils to 
read and appreciate the best in literature and to express 
themselves In clear, correct and forceful language, both in 
conversation and in writing. 

Foreign Languages 

The careful, thorough study of foreign languages 
gives much valuable mental discipline and culture to the 
student, while the knowledge gained thereby renders him 
an appreciative reader in the Language studied and in 

English as well. 

History 

The history course aims to teach students how to 
study history by showing them the relation of different 
events to eacb Other and their bearing upon the progress 
Of the world. Events and epochs are compared and con- 
trasted, and present social and political institutions are 
carefully studied. 

Science 

Competent teachers and a well equipped laboratory 
make possible practical and thorough work in the sciences. 
The physical and biological laboratory, well lighted and 
provided With running water, with gas and an adequate 
supply of apparatus, is located in the basement of the new 
High School building. Students are trained to gain a 
knowledge ol things for themselves rather than to be in- 
formed about them. Bach student is required to do individ- 
ual laboratory work under the Immediate supervision of

the instructor. Hence our graduates are enabled to enter 
college unconditioned, securing full credit, on presentation 
of their note books in either biology or physics. 

Psychology 

Believing that the average High School student can 
do much more efficient work with some knowledge of the 
working of the human mind than without it, the course in 
psychology will be emphasized. The aim of the work will 
be two-fold : first to enable the student to systematize his 
own thoughts and habits of study and life, and second to 
give him a point of view from which he may be helpful to 
others. 

Public Speaking 

Recognizing the fact that public speaking in some 
form and at some time falls to the lot of every individual 
it is the purpose of this department to prepare pupils ac- 
cordingly, and to that end rhetorical training will be given 
regularly in the High School and as far as possible in the 
grades. The work will be varied in character and will be 
in charge of a teacher who has had special training in this 
line of work and is well fitted for the position. 

A literary society, open to all High School students, 
has been formed, and will give excellent practice in public 
speaking and debating. 

Drawing and Painting 

This department is in charge of a specially trained 
teacher. The aim of the work is three-fold: to secure ac- 
curacy in construction, to train the hand to execute in form 
and arrangement what the mind conceives, and to develop 
an appreciation for the beautiful both in nature and art. 
To this end much mechanical drawing is done, as well as 
free hand work, both from nature and from studies. Pencil, 
pen and ink, crayon and water colors are among the me-

diums used. Much interest is evinced by those taking the 
course, and the work done is convincing proof of the effi- 
ciency of the instruction. 

Fire Drill Law 

Section 1. It shall be the duty of the Principal or other person 
in charge of every public or private school or educational institution 
within the State, having more than one hundred pupils, to instruct and 
train the pupils by means of drills so that they may in a sudden 
emergency be able to leave the school building in the shortest pos- 
sible time and without confusion or panic. Such drills or rapid dis- 
missals shall be held at least once each month. 

Sec. 2. Neglect by any Principal or other person in charge of 
any public or private school or educational institution to comply with 
the provisions of this act shall be a misdemeanor, punishable at the 
discretion of the court by fine not exceeding fifty dollars. Such fine 
to be paid to the pension fund of the local fire department where there 
is such a fund. 

Sec. 3. It shall be the duty of the Board of Education or School 
Board or other body having control of the schools in any town or 
city to cause a copy of this act to be printed in the manual or hand- 
book prepared for the guidance of the teachers, where such manual 
or hand book is in use or may hereafter come into use. 

Sec. 4. This act shall take effect June 1, 1901.
