Very often little credit is given to a school board for the service that it renders to the school community. The Weedsport School Board is made up entirely of men who are actively engaged in some business enterprise. Regularly on the first Monday of each month they give the entire evening to a scheduled meeting. At other times they are called upon to meet to settle some special question. From the standpoint of time they devote a great many hours during the course of a year. From the standpoint of attention they offer the same careful consideration to the business affairs of the school that they would give to their own business. The last financial report of the state department shows that Weedsport High School, based on the average daily attendance, is run at a lower cost than any other school in Cayuga County. The same figures show Weedsport well below the general average for such schools througout the entire state. This fact alone should prove the efficiency of our school board and should bring to the members the credit to which they are entitled.

Believing that the organization of the State Department of Education might be of interest to the readers of this publication, the following information is offered: The Commissioner of Education is the chief executive of the department. He is chosen by the Board of Regents and holds office as long as his service meets with the approval of that same Board. He has general supervision over the educational system of the state and in a large measure is responsible for progress made.

The Board of Regents is a body consisting of twelve men selected by the two houses of our State Legislature meeting in joint session. Each member is elected for a term of twelve years. This body serves as a legislative body. It has the right to determine the policies to be followed, to fix a means of examinations, to issue, alter or revoke charters of schools of the state. It determines the conditions under which teachers may be licensed. The department consists of three divisions namely one for higher education, one for secondary education and one for elementary. Each department has it's supervising officer appointed by the commissioner. They serve during the pleasure of the Commissioner.

Regularly our local school is visited by men who are sent out by the Department. They come to us for the purpose of inspecting the school and classes to determine whether or not the organization and instruction are satisfactory. From time to time recommendations are made by the Department that conditions may be made to meet more definitely with their approval.

The local school receives financial aid from the state on a teachers' quota, library fund, apparatus fund, nonresident academic tuition, and for all special work such as Agriculture. The Educational System ranks high as compared to the systems of the other states. The aim of the department is to continually raise that standard; with complete co-operation on the part of the schools of this state that condition can be established.

SCHOOL PRIZES - At the present time the school offers five prizes for work regularly done during the course of the school year. Each prize is a five dollar gold piece.

GILES PRIZE - Awarded at Commencement time to that student who has earned the greatest number of regents counts in subjects carried during the school year.

CLASS PRIZES - One prize for each of the four high school classes. To be awarded at Commencement time to that student who stands highest in the estimation of the faculty on the basis of scholarship, effort, improvement, and spirit of cooperation.

Prizes serve two very important functions. In the first place they serve as an incentive to the students to strive to do good school work; it gives them somethng definite toward which they may look. In the second place to the prize winners the award stands as an evidence that they have succeeded. Some members of the alumni who are interested in the school could render it a big service by the establishment of other prizes.

From time to time parents either knowingly or unknowingly violate the school attendance law. In some cases the school authorities are criticized for enforcing this law. In order that you may be acquainted with the more important features of this law the following facts are printed.

AGES - All students between the ages of 8 and 16 are required to attend during the entire time that school is in session.

LEGAL EXCUSES - Personal sickness. Impassable roads. In case of sickness in the family older students may remain at home a few days until other help may be secured.

PENALTY - For the first offense parents are liable to a fine of five dollars. For a second offense they are liable to a fine of fifty dollars or thirty days imprisonment or both.

TARDINESS - Repeated tardiness is just as much a violation of the law as illegal absence.

WORK CERTIFICATES - Students who are 14 years of age and have completed the work of the eighth grade may secure such certificates under provisions set by the state department.

Students who are 15 and have completed the work of the first six grades are also entitled to such certificates.

All parents should be, and most parents are, anxious that their children should be successful in life. One of the very strongest factors in the determination of success or failure may be found in the extent and quality of the education that they have acquired. There are many reasons why boys and girls fail in school but the two that stand out most prominently are lack of ability and lack of application. There are some, but only a small percentage, who do not have the native ability to do the grade of work required in the high school course. On the other hand there are a great many who fail only because they will not apply themselves diligently to school preparation. We will all agree that very few people have succeeded in any line of business if they have done only a quarter or a half as well as they were able to do. The very same condition is true in the school work; those who do consistently attend to school work pass regularly and with high grades while those who apply themselves listlessly either fail entirely or pass with low grades.

With this thought in mind we are stating a few essential requirements toward good school work. We should like to have the parents read them carefully and then aply them in the case of their children.

---Boys and girls must understand the importance of an education
---They should receive constant encouragement from parents.
---Their attendance should be punctual and regular.
---All lessons should be prepared thoroughly and on time.
---They should have a regular home study period, if possible, where they may not be interrupted.
---They should not regularly allow outside activities to interfere with school work.

If these conditions were practiced school results would be much higher and students would have little cause to worry.


High School agricultural work is no longer considered as in the experimental stage, but is now accepted as an economically sound course of study especially in those communities where farming is the major industry. There are now in New York State eight-six high schools, six state schools and two colleges carrying courses in agriculture. The average yearly enrollment in these schools shows sufficient interest in scientific agriculture to warrant their continuation.

The work of the agricultural department at Weedsport is divided into three sections. First comes the high school agricultural teaching work. Agriculture takes the place of Latin in the high school curriculum and those who graduate receive a vocational rather than an academic certificate. The agricultural course at Weedsport includes work in poultry, dairying, wood shop, soils, fertilizers, crops, animal husbandry, orcharding, and farm surveying, farm accounts, farm law, farm machinery, etc. This course is intended to give to the students an appreciation of the underlying principles of successful farming and to prepare them for advanced agricultural work in colleges if they care to go.

The second division is the junior project work. Boys and girls, especially in the seventh and eighth grades, are helped in carrying on projects in crops, gardening, poultry, and dairying, and an interest in growing things is stimulated. We also have a girls' sewing club which has done some very good work.

The third division is agricultural extension work in the community. The most work, in this section, has been done in poultry, especially culling; in animal husbandry, especially milk testing and tuberculosis control; and in assisting the county agent in his extension plans. Every community should be the better for having an agricultural teacher in its midst, and it is up to the community to make use of the teacher.

Much interest has been stimulated in agricultural things through junior project exhibits, school exhibits, Grange exhibits, and the various student stock judging contests. The boys who are in agricultural work, like and believe in it. The aim of this department is to place the agricultural work here on a plane level with that of any agricultural school in the state. We need the co-operation of loyal agricultural students, willing junior project workers, and a true community conception of extension activities. It should be done. It can be done.

Old Father Time swings his mighty scythe mowing down the years so swiftly that we do not realize it has been nearly eighty years since the old Union School was given its place in the annals of history. About 1845 the Union School House was built upon the site now owned by Mr. D. Clifford Jones.

A Catalogue published in 1852 states that there were four hundred and twelve pupils, four rooms and five teachers. In 1853 the district was incorporated as a Union School.  The Weedsport High School was established under a special charter by the Legislature of the State of New York in 1858. In 1870 it was made a High School. At this time a third story was added to the Union School Building. Under direction of A. W. Morehouse in 1871 the High School Department was organized. It occupied the third floor of the school building.

In 1875 the first class graduated from High School. It consisted of seventeen members, eleven of whom are still living.

Later two quite extensive additions were added to the school building, one on the northeast corner and the other on the southeast corner.

About 1908 the Old Union School House was condemned as unsafe for use. Then too, it was much too small to accommodate the number of students who were desirous of attending. Such circumstances led to the building of the Weedsport High School as it stands to-day.

In the fall of 1909 the new building was ready for use. It was considered one of the most up-to-date school buildings in this part of the state.

On February 26, 1925 about 6:30 P.M. the school building was reported to be on fire. Thanks to our worthy fire extinguishers it resulted in only a blaze of papers in the basement.

June 24, 1925 will be the commencement of the fifty-first class to graduate from Weedsport High School. The class numbers twenty-five and is the largest class that has ever graduated from Weedsport.

On a certain occasion an Englishman was showing a friend the evidence of modern enterprise in his town. In passing the most imposing structure, the stranger remarked that for a factory building it was the finest example he had seen. He asked "what do they manufacture there?" The answer came at once, "Brains; that's a schol house."

Some students, however, fail to comprehend this viewpoint. They consider school a bore, or worse. Some of them attend until they are sixteen because it is compulsory; others stay on because they have nothing else to do, or because they prefer loafing in school to getting out and hustling.

But the majority of students are in school for good, hard work and good, hard play, each at the proper time. They regard school as their job to be attended to just as faithfully as any in the business world; and when the time for play arrives, they play all the harder for having accomplished that work.

Authorities agree that athletics are the most valuable training for the battle of life that any student can acquire. Athletics teach true sportsmanship, co-operation and stick-to-ativeness. Any boy or girl who is able to play a good, clean game so as to win the approbation of his or her teammates need never fear when playing the great game of life. Our school mates are our severest critics, and although they may scoff at what they term "fussiness," deep down in their hearts they are forced to respect squareness.

Our school life is the rosebud, after years the flower matures and becomes beautiful, nourished by education as the rose is nourished by the sun and the rain.

The organization of athletics and the regulations concerning them attempt to conform to the highest standards of fair play, sportsmanlike conduct and a healthy recreation. Provision is made for boys and girls. Athletic training offers a number of important factors in the development of our youth; such as, lessons in the observance of rules, development of strong bodies, stamina, rapid and accurate thinking and others.

The foot-ball team was made up quite largely of men without experience. They met such teams as Clyde, Groton, Baldwinsville, Moravia and Most Holy Rosary. Considered from the standpoint of games won the season was not a great success, but the experience gained should be a big advantage to the players during the coming season.

The basket-ball team was a member of the County League. As such they lost only two games, both the Sherwood Select School. One of these was played as a post season game to decide the winner of the League.

We are also participating in a County baseball league. Games are now being played, but no definite estimation can be given as to the prospects of the local team.

Athletics are important in the school life and program of to-day and as such they should be heartily supported by students and by the community.

There are four photos in this book:
