Treasure Chest Thursday - Report Card for Beryl Johnston 1917
I have a collection of papers that belonged to my
great-aunt, Beryl Johnston. She was the sister of my grandfather, Tom J.
Johnston. My grandfather didn't save his report cards, but my aunt saved hers.
Below you'll see the card for 1917 when she was in Mrs. Odell's primary grade
at Gustine School.
1917 Report Card (front)
I found a Mary Odell as a nineteen-year-old teacher living
as a boarder in the James A. Hubbard household in Comanche County, Texas.
Beryl was promoted to low second grade for the next term.
1917 Report Card (back)
The other side shows her grades for reading, spelling,
writing, and arithmetic. She earned grades of A or A-. One month she was absent
eight days but basically she attended school regularly. Her father, Thomas N.
Johnston, signed the card the six times.
