Magnitude I (F <+, e, o, O-] -'W.I" Regional 6 1 0 Previous week 8 4 0 m No one likes large, damaging earth- quakes and it is even tougher when they occur during the Holiday Season. While everyone was cerebrating peace on Earth on Christmas Day in 1899, a strong earthquake measuring about a magni- tude 6.4 struck the San Jacinto Valley region. The quake was centered in the southern portion of the valley near the towns of Hemet and San Jacinto. Shaking was intense, registering intensities of IX on the Modified Mercalli Scale (a relative shaking intensity rating from 1-12 shown in Roman numerals). Heavy damage oc- curred in both towns, killing six persons and severely injuring at least eight others. The death toll probably would have been higher if it had occurred on any other busi- ness day as nearly every brick building was destroyed in Hemet many of which were commercial or retail and would have been full of Holiday shoppers. The quake was centered along northern segment of the San Jacinto fault zone, which experi- encecl another strong jolt registering a magnitude 6.8 on April 21,1918. I 80s DAY Student Council organized the first Spirit Day of the year -- 80s Day! Students (and staff) got into the fun and donned their bright colors, leg warmers, leatherjackets, big hair and sideponytails. The third-graders won for the most par- ticipation -- 49%. Way to go third-graders! The next spirit day is scheduled for Dec.llth, Pajama Day. DRAWING ASSEMBLY Thank you so much to our PCO for bringing in such a high quality assembly. Mark Kistler came all the way from Texas and taught students how to draw in 3D. If your child was really into this and wants more, check out his web- page at FROM THE PRINCIPAL I continue to be in awe of the breadth and depth of our par- ent community. The drawing assembly brought to PQES was of very high quality. With the high quality comes a high rice tag. Thank you for supporting our Parent's Club for being able to bring such a great artist and presenter all the way from Texas to our students here in Quincy. Upcoming Events 12/7 PCO Meeting, 3:30 12/14 First Trimester Awards assembly 12/24-1/4 Winter Break Parent Portal... As we are getting into the fourth week of the quarter I would like to encourage all of you to sign up and use the parent portal. Your daughter/son's grades, assignments, at- tendance record, and lunch account are available on the portal through the Internet. If you have signed up and still are not sure how to get on the portal and use it please give my office a call and talk to Mrs. McColm. Also, our teachers are putting in two grades per week with the exception of AP classes. This is an excellent way to build that connection be- tween school and home. At this time we have approximate- ly 80% of our parents with access to this but not that 80% using it. Our teachers can see what parents are checking student grades and monitoring progress. Dr. Sue A reminder to all students (and parents) regarding atten- dance.

If you are absent for a day or any part of the day, you have 24 hours to dear your absence. Or, if you receive an attendance note from our of- rice, it must be cleared within 24 hours or your absence will be unexcused..Infractions can lead to the student atten- dance review board at the district level, and could result in student community service, suspension of driving privi- leges, loss of eligibility to participate in sports and school activities, and fines for which a parent or guardian and pupil may be jointly liable.

The high-quality 3-D im- ages make for a more accu- rate diagnosis of structures such as aneurysms, tumors, infections, and much more.
