2A Wednesday, Feb. 10, 2010 Feather River Bulletin Principal's Message The cafeteria is always an exciting place to be, though sometimes the energy level can be a bit overwhelming. To be fair, your children have worked hard all morning and when they finally get a chance to relax and enjoy a meal with their buddies, we should probably expect them to blow off a little steam. The noise is rarely a reflection of trouble. Instead, it is generally just kids enjoying each other. Given the excitement, I was concerned when I saw a boy eating at an empty table all by himself. I sat with him for a moment and asked, "Are you sitting here because you're in trou- ble? .... I was," he responded, "but I'm not any more. It's just quieter here." "So how long are you going to sit here?" I asked. He broke into a big smile and announced firmly, "I'm going to sit here for the rest of my life!" He may change his mind in ten or twenty years, but it's a pretty good decision right now. Have a nice wintery weekend. Sincerely, Shepard Kest Porter, Principal A Word from the Secretary One of our students found a set of keys on the playground this week.

Did your child receive the H1N1 vaccine in December at school? If so, you should have received a permission form for the second dose in the two vaccine series. Please sign this form and return to the school office by February 5th to complete the flu vaccine for full protection. The vaccine will be administered at school on February 9th.

After several long nights and numerous coffee runs, teams of UCLA Anderson stu- dents gathered Jan. 9 to pre- sent their reports on ways to improve the Starbucks brand for the annual competition. This year, 25 teams of five students each participated in the competition, which began Thursday night and conclud- ed Saturday afternoon. The fictional case asked each team to develop recom- mendations on how to im- prove the Starbucks brand, which was said to be experi- encing falling profits and in- creasing store closures. After working through the case from Thursday night on, teams were allotted 20 min- utes for presentations and 10 minutes for questions and an- swers with a panel of judges. The panel consisted of UCLA Anderson professors and De- loitte representatives After hours of presenta- tions, Team E-Street Readers came away with the winning prize. Daun was joined by teammates Shirin Eghtesadi, Michael Jeun, Sajid Mohame- di and David Rains. The team demonstrated a clear level of analysis and preparation, but more impor- tantly members performed well as a team. "We learned that in order for us to be suc- cessful, we needed to bond to- gether as a team. We didn't let ourselves get into any kind of drama," Eghtesadi said. BUY IN BULK AND SAVE!

A 2002 graduate of Quincy High, Daun expects to complete her MBA in 2011. Photo submitted Many of the judges saw the team's cohesiveness. Eric Mark, principal at Deloitte, said, "We looked for a strong presentation and a team that had aligned views and showed unity by responding to the Q&A section in a well- prepared manner." Other judges looked for ap- plication of skills learned at Anderson. Hans Schollham- mer, an Anderson professor, said, "It wasn't just about the presentation. We wanted to see an analytic effort. We wanted mathematical justification for each team's recommendation." UCLA Anderson School of Management, established in 1935, is regarded among the very best business schools in the world. Daun is on track to complete her MBA in 2011. Daun holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in biology from Claremont McKenna College, where she played Division III volleyball and served as team captain her senior year. She is the daughter of David and Jane Daun of Johnsville. Community radio gets grant The Plumas Community Radio Project's board of direc- tors has learned the project will receive a grant from Union Pacific. The railroad's foundation provides funding for eco- nomic development projects for communities on its rail- road lines. The $7,500 grant comes in time to supple- ment a recent fundraising campaign to purchase the equipment necessary to re- turn to local airwaves by May. Quincy and surrounding ar- eas have been lacking a local radio presence for several years. Benefits for providing a community radio voice in- clude opportunities for local DJ programming, public ser- vice announcements and on- air acknowledgements for business supporters. Also identified as crucial services that community ra- dio may provide is a need for local news, weather and emer- gency broadcasting services. Board members Karen Hay- den and Shaun Lemnah, are working with local emer- gency agencies to identify ...........
