Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Dec, 26, 2012 9A TRAGEDY AT SANDY HOOK While the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary is clear across the country, it struck a cord with all of us. Nearly all of us questioned our safety in our small community. We have all struggled with how to talk to our children about this. Even from across the country, we have grieved the loss of all those lives, teachers and young children. As your Principal, I have led our staff in evaluating our safety procedures by reviewing our safety plan. On Wednesday, we conducted a lockdown drill. Under the guidance of our head custodian, Frank Carey, the drill went very well students took it seriously and have given thought about what to do if such a terrible event were to happen here. And to help our students show their support, we have cre- ated a poster in the hallway that everyone can sign, as well as participated in the snowflakes for Sandy Hook cam- paign. On Friday, we head into winter break, but that does not mean that your child may not still be having feelings of grief and fear. Please, watch over them closely, and if you need assistance, let us know. We are here for you. As we approach the winter holidays, I want to share the joy that I have had these past six months have brought me by being your Principal. The students here make me smile daily, and I have so enjoyed getting to know them. Enjoy the comfort and joy of the holiday season with your family and friends, and we'll see you in the new year!

The band program had its annual Winter Concert Dec. 19 -- the performances by the choir and the bands were wonderful and everyone was full of spirit! The play "Ashdown-Lee" performance was a great suc- cess and the community was very supportive! Basketball season kicked off with the 32nd Tip-Off Clas- sic where Quincy JV placed third and varsity placed fourth.
