City Schools Graduate Classes

Six pupils of the San Rafael High School completed the prescribed course last Friday and have received certificates of graduation.

That this important stage of their school life may be marked with more than the mere presentation to them of the diplomas, Superintendent O. R. Hartzell has decided that the formal delivery of the awards shall be made at the annual Commencement exercises in June. This will apply to all students who finish the couse before that time.

Those who completed their studies Friday were Emma MARCHISIO, Edith WHITTEMORE, Rose helene FAGUNDES, Elliott JONES, and John MacPHAIL.

Some members of the class will continue in the San Rafael High School as postgraduates. One has entered the Normal School. Another has decided to enter a business college in San Francisco.

Superintendent Hartzell announces that the incoming freshman class will number 25.
