War Years: Impact on School
“The successful conduct of your school is one of your direct contributions to National Defense. We wish that our young people may grow into citizens who love America and who are willing to do their part in thoughtful study of her problems, in sharing the cost of government, and, if necessary, making any and every sacrifice to defend this land against foreign aggression. Our teachers are earnestly and happily engaged in this vital task.” Harold B. Clifford Superintendent of Schools.
