The intensity of seismicity remained relaxed, producing two events in the M 2 range. Driving the action was a small seismic swarm at the California-Nevada border east of Truckee. The sequence began Fri- day afternoon and slowly clicked off a couple events a day until Tuesday after- noon when the activity stopped. All of the action was small. Largest: M 1.9. The largest quake measured M 2.6 and occurred Tuesday night on the northwest- ern slope of Lassen Peak near Whitmore. Three quakes were detected north- west of Chester and 1.5 miles south of Drakesbad near Terminal Geysers. The occurred on the Hot Springs fault, which ruptured with a large earthquake not too long ago and created the open frac- tures that are responsible for Terminal Geysers and Boiling Springs Lake. The fault displacements can still be seen today.

From left: teacher Yvonne Casalnuovo, Director of Outdoor Education Rob Wade, teacher Nancy Sipe, State Superintendent of Schools Tom Torlakson, Superintendent Micheline Miglis, Principal Kristy Warren and PUSD board president Chris Russell. Ul ncy ngui More than 500 students and administrators representing 125 schools in the state of California convened in Sacramento on Monday, June 9, for the Distinguished Schools Award ceremony and luncheon. Among the celebrated recipients was Quincy Elementary School. The award is given to those schools that maximize their instruction and resources to meet the needs of underrepresented subgroups in schools. Schools must present their practices as part of the application process. If chosen, the school is visited by a state-approved validation team that observes the practices in action and verifies the impact on student learning through observations and interviews with teachers and students. Quincy Elementary School was chosen based on its comprehensive application that highlighted the school's signature practices: place-based learning and differentiated instruction. Plumas Unified School District board pre'sident Chris Russell, Superintendent Micheline Miglis and Director of Student Performance Ed Thompson joined Principal Kristy Warren, Director of Outdoor Education Rob Wade and teachers Nancy Sipe and Yvonne Casalnuovo for the special event. The essence of Quincy Elementary School's success is captured in the following excerpt from its application: "Our school site has an incredible setting, with Boyle's Creek running along the north side of the campus. The campus rests at the base of Claremont Peak, with many walking field trips taken to Boyle's Ravine in the fall and spring months. "From this setting, we thrive with a rich outdoor education program, complete with an outdoor classroom and a sixth-grade capstone watershed education course. "During the V m-m months, students in kindergarten - sixth grade can be found learning in the outdoor classroom, walking along the nature trail that lines the northern border of our campus or participating in learning opportunities through our local community garden, adjacent to the south side classrooms. "Academic success is achieved through differentiated instruction in guided reading groups, frequent monitoring of student achievement through a comprehensive formative assessment plan, analysis of best practices through Monday collaborations, and a team approach to student success, including all support staff."
