Much emphasis has been placed on planning the elementary curriculum to meet the child*s interests and needs. The curriculum should provide the child with a variety of experiences that will enable him to succeed in the society of which he is a member. In order that pupils of the Douglass Elementary School will live more effectively in the complex contemporary society, the curriculum should include various wholesome activities and educative experiences. Through these activities, the child should be able to explore and discover his interests and abilities. Experiences should be provided in the Douglass Elementary School which will equip the pupils with the foundation they will need to participate fully in the high school programs. The school programs should also prepare the pupils to meet the demands of the society.
