It appears that a typical school day began at 9:00 and ended at 4:00 with a one hour
lunch period.  There were two "intermissions" one mid-morning and one mid-afternoon.  
Depending on the grade students were in, it seems there were courses in Arithmetic,
language, grammar, geography, physiology, Kansas history, reading, writing, drawing,
civics, U.S. History, spelling, agriculture.
