That such an association answers a need is shown by its growth. Formed May, 1917, in three years the membership has reached beyond eight hundred.
Through affiliation with the National League of Teachers' Associations, the organization meets and cooperates with similar groups of classroom teachers in the National Education Association and in the California Teachers' Association.
The general executive body of the Association is the Central Committee,
which meets the first Monday not a school holiday of each calendar month.
Special activities are carried on through sections or committees. A monthly
bulletin is issued to advise the members of the various
activities and the time of meetings. Committee and most section meetings are held in the Association headquarters at 333 Kearny Street. This room is a gift from Mr. Raphael WEILL.
The following sections are now active: Kindergarten and First Grade Section, Second and Third Grade Section, Fourth Grade Section, Fifth and Sixth Grade Section. Seventh and Eighth Grade Round Table, Bird Section, and Swimming Section.
