label levels:

There is currently no available "Beginner" label. The following is the default level label: Private academies frequently invited students' families and other special guests to attend end-of-term excercises and celebrations. Printed on the back of a playing card (9 of Clubs), this invitation entitled the recipient to attend a program of speeches, declamations, dialogues, and orations from the students of Deerfield Academy. The occasion was attended by parents, trustees, and townspeople on the last Tuesday of each quarter. After the presentations they all celebrated with an Exhibition Ball, held around the corner from the Academy at Barnard's Assembly Hall.
