6A Wednesday, March 28, 2001 Children/Health i! win By Victoria Metcalf Staff Writer Three students at Quincy Elementary School (QES) were the big winners in an essay contest at the Elks dis- trict level. According to Drug Awareness Chairman Me Ragusa, it was gratifying to see three Quincy students take home prizes in such a big competition. Of the six possi- ble placements, Quincy claimed three. Earlier, students from QES and one student from Pioneer Elementary School won hon- ors on the local level with essays on "How Good Life Can Be--Be Drug Free." The winners went on to the Northeast District Elks com- petition and were awarded savings bonds for the place- ments. QES sixth-grader Muir Morrison came in first, win- ning a $100 savings bond for the boy's division. QES sixth-grader Erika Samuel, and QES fifth-grader Lyndsi Jaureguito, both won $50 savings bonds for placing second and third in the girl's division. According to Ragusa, Muir's essay went on to com- pete at the state level of the Elks competition. The results of that competition have not been published.

The American Sign Language (ASL) immersion weekend, scheduled for May 11-13 gives the children and their parents an opportunity to hone their sign language skills and improve their com- munication. Lynne Koeller, a teacher for deaf children, explains that though most parents have basic sign language skills, they are not advanced enough to allow child and parent to have in-depth conversations. Koeller said, "Spending a 'silent weekend' with deaf adults and other students will give the parents the opportu- nity to use ASL to communi- cate for everything for the entire weekend, and at the same time give the parent a chance to understand how the deaf child feels in a hearing household, as now the parent will be on the 'other side.'" But, to get to the weekend workshop near the Alliance Redwoods, the six local deaf children, ranging in age from 3 to 17, need help. KoeUer has organized a fund-raiser to help the children. Tickets may be purchased to win a gift certificate from one of the following merchants: Carey's Candy Co., the Toy Store, Sights & Sounds, Sweet Lorraine's, Sierra Mountain Sports or The Bookshelf. Tickets are $1 or six for $,5 and may be purchased at the above locations. The prize will be awarded May 1. For more information, call Lynn Koeller at 283-4148 after 4p.m. Printing Estimates!
