He encouraged the students to always take care of themselves and to not let issues derail them. "Please don't let any mistake make you think less of yourself," he said, and used a $1 bill to make his point. No matter how he folded it, or even if it were to fall on the ground and be stepped on, it was still worth $1.

Sixth-grade teachers Linda Beacham and Rick Wilson, along with school board members Leslie Edlund and Dwight Pierson. presented the certificates and congratulated the students.

In 2014, PUSD offered, for the first time, a Summer Meals Program in Greenville and Portola. During the program, 7,357 free healthy meals were given out to Plumas County kids. "During the school year, many families participate in the free lunch program at their school, but in the summer this valuable support for a family's budget goes away," said Linford. The "seamless summer option" is a USDA-funded program that allows PUSD to serve free meals to anyone 18 and under while school is out. There are no requirements to participate in the program. PUSD will be offering its Summer Meals Program for the second year in 2015 and expanding the program to Chester and Quincy. All meals include fresh fruit and/or vegetables and a choice of low-fat milk or water. All sites are in operation Monday - Friday. Plumas County Public Health Agency will support the Summer Meals Program by providing a variety of interactive physical activities at meal sites. Health educators working in supplemental nutrition assistance program education will engage kids at each summer meal site in activities that get them moving, staying active and coming back to the program for healthy, nutritious meals throughout the summer. Last year, activities at the Portola site included giant croquet, obstacle course's, hula hoops, jump rope, capture the flag and volleyball. This year, these activities (and more!) will be held on a rotating basis at all sites, and will reach out to Insure Your Family's Safety and Comfort! r m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m m u mo am m  mm m m m m m m m ..t- m m m  m m m ml I 'COOLING SYSTEM SERVICE ' ' & SAFETY INSPECTION ' I I I I I I I I ' A/C $99 SWAMP COOLERS $159 ,  I I I Offer and coupon valid through June 30.
