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 (firstname.lastname@example.org).
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.
