From the Rockingham Post-Dispatch, Dec. 22, 1921.

The Rohanen School now has an enrollment of 391. The eight large class rooms are crowded, and in addition to these, about 40 children are being taught in the auditorium.

A piano has been placed in the building, and Mrs. Purnell, the music teacher, has a large class of piano and violin pupils.

The teachers are entertaining the entire school at a moving picture party this afternoon.

A Christmas program will be presented as a chapel exercise Friday morning, by the pupils.

The school will close for the holidays December 23rd and open January 2nd.
