Polish School Closes, 1921

The Mining Gazette , Friday, January 7, 1921,
p. 10
Decrease in Attendance is Announced
as Reason
The low record of attendance at the
Polish parochial school in Seventh
Street resulted in the closing of its
doors Monday. The departure of many
Polish residents in the Calumet district
caused a decrease in enrollment of over
50 per cent, the attendance at the last
sessions totaling 43.
Rev. Fr. Woolny announced yester-
day provisions had been made for the
pupils in the parochial and public
Schools of the district.
