Forest Service visits QES: This week, representatives from the Forest Service came to talk to students in 3rd-6th grade about the poster contest project. Students in 3rd-6th grade have the opportunity to create a poster representing fire prevention, and the winners will be invited to paint their design for display around our community. Deadline for this is May 1st. Smokey the Bear also visited our primary classrooms this week to spread the message of preventing forest fires. State testing has begun: Students in 3rd-6th grade have begun their state testing. New this year is the assessment of the California Common Core Standards through the Smarter Balanced testing system. Different this year is that it is all done online. Students in 4th-6th grades have been making use of the computer lab at Quincy High School to complete this testing. Students are noticing a difference in the computer based format and the rigor, as compared to the previous paper/pencil and multiple choice test. Make sure to ask your child what they thought 0f.the assessment This year, it is a "field test." Neither students or schools will receive results, but it will help all of us better prepare for next year. For more information, check out: Parent Liaison- Pam Becwar: This week the kids came home Saying that they were measured for free shoes from Tom's. Okay. Did I miss something- the shoe fairy perhaps? I decided to look into it to see what was going on and how my kids' feet became involved. The old saying says "don't look a gift horse in the mouth" but looking a gift shoe in the sole seemed reasonable. Tom's has a website (toms.corn) that explains their approach to business which includes helping communities. For every pair of shoes that Tom's sells, they give a pair of shoes away. They have an extensive program in the U.S. that includes shoes, eye glasses, and now they sell coffee and give away water systems. They must be doing a brisk business since they have given away a million pairs of shoes. I also checked them out on Amazon and the shoes start in between $25 and $35. The visit was facilitated by PUSD, approved by our Governing Board, and kids could decline to participate. The kids said the shoes should be here by the end of school- just in time for summer. Upcoming Dates: 5/7: Parent book group, 7:30am 5/9: Family Game Night 5/12: Site Council 5/19: 5th grade overnight 5/21: Student Council 5/26: Memorial Day- No School 5/28: Concert on the Green Graduation is right around the corner, and for our Senior Class that means a time of celebrations! One of those celebrations will be Graduation Night with their "Safe and Sober Grad" party. It is an honor to have a place for this class to come together in a safe environment with many activities, food, prizes, and friends. Without the help of many adult volunteers, this event cannot happen. The Sober Grad committee is in need of adult chaperones for this event on Friday, June 13 and continuing into the morning hours of Saturday, June 14, 2014. We are seeking volunteers who would work two-hour shifts beginning on Friday night at 10:00 p.m. and ending at 5:00 a.m. on Sunday morning. This event will be held at Serpillio Hall at the Plumas County Fairgrounds. If you are able to help, please contact Mrs. McColm in the office at 283-6510 ext. #7 and leav your contact information and what time you would be available.

The intensity of seismicity increased as well, producing twice as many M 2s as last week. All of the M 2 activity occurred in the northern map area.

The largest quake measured M 2.1 and occurred a mile east of Mt. Harkness. This is where the fault displaces lateral glacial moraine crests a total of 34 and 45 meters (ave. 39.5 meters). The age of the moraine crests is not well known but are likely to be around 18,000 years old. A M 7.4 quake causes about 4 meters of dis- placement, so roughly 10 have happened since 18,000 years ago. The big question is when did the last one happen?
