It was the first time activity has had back- to-back 30 quakes since the Lassen Peak swarm in November last year. The earthquake swarm near Mineral continued for the third straight week, producing nine events, including one as large as M L0. Twenty-nine quakes have been recorded in the sequence. A seven-event series close to the junction of Highways 32 and 36 included three in the M 2 range. The largest mea- sured M 2.5 and all of them happened in a four-hour window beginning at 10:19 a.m. on August 13. Two quakes measuring M 2.6 and M 2.4 occurred at Canyondam and both hap- pened within a 30 minute window begin- ning at 1:18 p.m. on August 17. Both were locally felt. The largest of four aftershocks to a M 3.5 in NM last week measured M2.4.

Welcome back! Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year! I am excited to return as your Principal and look forward to working together to do many wonderful things for students this year. We are fortunate to have dedicated teachers, involved parents and hardworking students that all combine to make for a positive place to teach and learn. New staff I'd like to introduce you to our new 5th grade teacher, Ms. Read. Ms. Read takes the place of Ms. Casalnuovo, who has taken a position in our district as an instructional coach. Ms. Read comes to us after having been at Quincy High School and looks forward to working with fifth grade students. Class Lists and Family Movie Night Class lists will be posted on the front door of QES on Friday, August 28th at 4:00. Plan on staying for family movie night at 6:00 featuring "Home." AR Reading There is still time to complete your AR reading and quizzes at the public library for the summer! The deadline is Friday, August 28th. TK/Kindergarten Orientation Please join us on Aug. 27 at 6 p.m. for our TK/Kindergarten orientation at Pioneer. Parents and students can come, meet their teacher and check out the classroom. Construction Update If you've driven by school this summer, you've noticed quite a bit of work going on around campus. If you remember last year we closed down the third wing of our campus. I'm pleased to say that the wing now has a brand new roof and is safe for students and staff. Along with the roof project came numerous upgrades to our campus including the renovation of the student restroom near the playground, new cement work and a new parking lot on the west end of the upper terrace. While most of the work will be completed Prior to school starting, there will continue to be work done, primarily on the upper terrace parking lot. I'll be working closely with our custodial and maintenance staff to ensure a safe environment for our students August 8/27 TK/Kindergarten Orientation, 6:00-7:00, Pioneer 8/28 Class lists posted at QES, 4:00 8/28 Family Movie Night "Home", 6:00 8/31 First day of school!
