',- Kory Felker, MPT ((? 78 Central Ave., Quincy 283-2202 Dear Dollard's Market Customers: After being in business for 21 years, it's time to retire. We owe this community and the wonderful people in it a sincere "Thank You" for supporting our business and family throughout the years. Our success wouldn't be possible without you! Once again, o,, and we wish you the best life has to offer in the future. Sincerely, Jerry Dollard & Family Elementary School Principal's Message I'm not sure if this is a discipline issue or a cafeteria is- sue. It seems one of our teachers read to her class the chil- dren's classic, How to Eat Fried Worms. You can imagine where that led; I had a discipline referral for boys eating worms on the playground during lunch recess. It is my un- derstanding that worms are good protein, so that part was okay with me. However, Education Code does not allow us to compete with the school lunch program. You can imag- ine the loss in funds if all our kids began eating worms in- stead of buying hot lunches. Obviously, this was a sticky issue. I explained to the kids that the worms on our play- ground could be carrying parasites that could harm them (we do have dogs that leave surprises for us). Therefore, if your children wish to eat worms for lunch, we are asking that you prepare them at home, making sure they are washed well and cooked properly. Bon apptit. Sincerely, Shepard Kest Porter, Principal A Word from the Secretary I would like to thank Amanda Fullerton, Nova Preston and Jacky Madarang for volunteering their time on Spring Picture Day.
