4A Wednesday, May 19, 2010 Feather River Bulletin Principal's Message Dear Parents: One of the joys of being a principal at an elementary school is having young students demonstrate their new reading skills. Sometimes it happens when I visit class- rooms and other times they come to the office, books in hand, asking if Mrs. McColm or I have time to hear them read. They usually settle in, open their books, and take the plunge. Some find it easier than others, but they all take it very Seriously and usually end with a huge, relieved ear-to- ear smile. They should be pleased; learning to read is a skill that will change their lives forever, opening doors to things that they cannot even imagine... Tomorrow, the 14th, is our planned deadline to sign up for the Waldorf-inspired first grade. If you want your child to be included, please let us know. Next Tuesday, the 18th, we will hold a Hazardous Materi- als Drill to be prepared in case the ammonia tanks at the mill leak. During our 1:00 recess, the signal will sound for all students to immediately go to their classrooms. The ventilation system will be turned off to keep out outside air. The drill should take no more than twenty minutes. It is all to be sure your children will be safe, our first priority. Sincerely, Shepard Kest Porter, Principal A Word from the Secretary Friday June 4th, is the last day that students can take AR tests or complete Math Facts In A Flash levels. Any points earned after that day will not be counted toward club awards. Please remember our dress code in this warm weather. The warm weather is wonderful, but students still need to follow the district's dress code. Students cannot wear "flip flop" style sandals to school. Students also cannot wear "spaghetti" style shirts or short shorts to school.

The barbecue part will begin at noon with hamburgers and hot dogs cooked by the hall committee. Partygoers should bring side dishes to share and beverages. The meeting part is a time to plan what kinds of events the community would like to have at the hall. Line or square,dancing and bingo are already being discussed. The cleaning part includes the yard, windows, floors and bathrooms -- volunteers are asked to bring tools and equipment.

Photo submitted SENIOR SPOTLIGHT Quincy High School senior and German Rotary exchange student Georg Thunecke gave sophomore Viet Tran beginning German lessons for his senior project. Thunecke planned lessons and topics with his mentor, QHS teacher Karen Hicks. He spent 21 hours teaching German grammar, history, culture and vocabulary to Tran. "The German language is a hard one to learn and Viet did a terrific job learning it. Viet made good progress and now has a good understanding of the German culture and language," said Thunecke. "There is still a long way to go, but we made a huge step in a good direction." Inspired by the experienceand the friendship it fostered, Tran is making plans to visit Thunecke in Germany within the next few years, where he will be able to use his new language skills.
