This Day in History: 1952-01-26
The parents of children in Mrs. McCann’s kindergarten showed their support of the school in a practical way by completing a series of projects to improve the classroom. Questionnaires were sent home to determine what individual families were willing to do. Committees were then formed to be in charge of parties, telephone contacts and construction of equipment. The biggest project involved the construction of a partition in the form of a side of a house for the housekeeping corner of the classroom. This was constructed to hold the stove, dishes, doll bed and other homemaking equipment. A classroom library was expanded and bedding made for the doll bed. The parents pledged to continue their participation as long as their children were in school.
