TIME FOR KIDDO KUDOS! I am proud to present the Sunol Glen School second quarter Honor Roll. Fifth grade: Chase Aura, Jordan Bruno, Nicole Harvey, Lindsay Howard, Travis Hoxie, Ryan Johnson, Corbin Kuntze, Haley Laine, Angela Lee, Julian Reisenthel, Logan Williams, Tara Zahiri.

Sixth grade: Jessica Bruno, Griffin Beemiller, Adam Foster, Jordan Franco, Joshua Hadlock, Jennifer Haggerty, Frankie Imhof, Parmida Izadi, Don Krasky, Saba Mash, Kerry McCulloch, Alexzandra Roden, Daniel Salvador, Scott Sweetnam, Jamie Thurman, Geoffrey Woods.

Seventh grade: Michael Carter, David Ingebretsen, Calvin Kuntze, Sarae Van Dyke, Josh Whitfield, Galen Willett. Eighth grade: Richard Foster, Danielle Scroggins, Martin Smith.

Sunol Glen also rewards good behavior and good citizenship. Positive Citations are given at the end of each quarter for extra efforts students make in everyday behavior, and winners get a free recess. Students can also win CHAMPS cards for self-initiated acts of good citizenship. The cards can be turned in at the office for quarterly drawings for ice cream treats.

Second quarter there were 41 Positive Citation winners and 27 CHAMPS Card winners, and there were also 63 students with perfect attendance. I'd say that's pretty great for a school with 166 students, wouldn't you? Congratulations and a wish for continued success to these fine students and their parents!

RESERVE A TASTY TRI-TIP: The class of 2002 is selling hand-rubbed barbequed tri-tip roasts to raise funds for the spring trip to Washington, D.C. These delicious 3 - 4 lb. Roasts cost only $15 each, and freeze really well, so order yourself a few. Orders must be in by Friday, March 8. Pick-up day will be March 11. Stop in at the school office for an order form or call Dale Scroggins (925-862-0314) or Lisa Harper (925-862-0426).

EXPLORATION DAY ALERT: Lisa Harper is also helming Exploration Day this year and needs lots of volunteers to make this special day run smoothly. So far she's got a terrific crew for the May 3 all-day event, including Jana Ballstadt, Victoria Barnes, Vickie DeValle, Theresa Imhof, Margaret Johnson, Terri Jones, Diana Madden, Libby Sweetnam, Guin Van Dyke, Ginny Williams and Mitra Zahiri, but many more are needed.

Each year Exploration Day brings presenters to the school to share their hobbies and career experiences with the children. It's a great opportunity for the kids to learn about our world and the choices they have in the future. Each class is split into two groups and escorted by volunteers to four different forty-minute sessions. If you have a hobby or career you would like to present, please contact Lisa by phone (925-862-0426) or e-mail (lharper12@attbi.com).

ANOTHER OPENING, ANOTHER SHOW: Sunol Repertory Theatre's 21st season production, "Caught in the Villain's Gaze," opened Saturday after a free Friday dress rehearsal with area seniors as the audience. Both these thrilling evenings occurred after this column's deadline, but I'm sure all the hard work by cast and crew paid off with terrific performances.

No kidding folks, this is one you must not miss. There are more laughs, special effects and amazing costumes than ever. Tickets for the upcoming performances on March 8, 9, 15, 16, 22 and 23 can be purchased for $10 each at the Sunol Coffee House and Cafe (925-862-2914), by mail (send your check, number of tickets, performance date, and stamped self-addressed envelope to SRT, P.O. Box 282, Sunol, CA, 94586), or call Producer Diane Tiessen at 925-862-2020.

BIRTHDAY WISHES: Last but most certainly not least, happy birthday to Save Our Sunol's fearless leader and longtime Kilkare Woods resident Pat Stillman. Pat's birthday was February 26 and she and her husband Bart celebrated the weekend before with dinner out with their son Tom. They came home to find a lovely dish garden from their son Bill and his wife Patricia, who live in Santa Rosa. On her actual birthday - and this should be no surprise to those who know her - Pat spent most of the day in San Francisco, speaking out once more against the planned mining of Water Temple Field at a Public Utilities Commission Meeting. Happy Birthday, Pat, and wishes for many more.
