Bulldog by Samantha Hadley FFA Food Packing By SuSun Fisher The W'fllamina FFA food packaging project was very successful again this year. About 24,000 pounds of food was recently packaged in our school district for distribution to area food banks. Many area farms, companies, and families do- nated a variety of fruits and vegetables, which in- cluded foods such as apples, pears, oranges, pota- toes, beets, carrots, and onions to name a few. The packaged food was delivered to many regional food banks and to food banks as far away as Coos Bay. "It is a lot of work, a lot of hours, a lot of labor," said Wyatt Woodward, a senior at Willamina High School. Woodward actually delivered some of the food himself. Under the direction of FFA teacher/advisor, Roy Whitman, the Willamina School District has been packaging food for the past five years, but the project began in Perrydale 15 years ago.

NJHS Tree of Giving By Katherine Morris and Justin Fasana In the National Junior Honor Society, we completed a char- ity event to support the area Tree of Giv- ing project. The pur- pose of the Tree of Giving is to give gifts to people who are less fortunate during the holidays so that they have something spe- cial to open on Christ- mas morning. In December, NJHS students went shopping for gifts in Salem and then wrapped the gifts which were donated to the project. To raise money to purchase gifts, everybody in the National Junior Honor Society, WMS Leader- ship Team, and other individuals and organi- zations in the commu- nity made generous donations which were greatly appreciated. Together, we were able "to raise a total of $1,500 to buy gifts for the Tree of Giving and to support other young people in our commu- nity. l!!i Students wrap gifts for the Tree of Giving Native Song by Michella Gonzalez Winter Tree by Georgia Haight Community celebra00:es School Board Recognition Month The Sheridan andWtllamina school districts will join the other 195 school districts throughout Oregon to celebrate January as "School Board Recognition Month," Superintendent A.J. Grauer announced Jan. 7. Serving on our local school board are: Jason Alexander (4 yrs.); Judy Breeden (6 yrs.); Larry Deibel (I1 yrs.), Harvey Hall (2 yrs.); and Robin Rawlings (8 yrs.). "Our school board members spend countless hours of unpaid time working to provide the best possible education for our stu- dents," said Superintendent Gram. "They also serve as the corporate board of directors for one of our community's largest employers. Celebrating School Board Recognition Month is one way to say thanks for alltt do." School board members rep- resent their fellow citizens' fiews and prioritie; in the com- plex enterprise of maintaining and nmning the community's public schools, Grauer said. They also reinforce the prin- ciple of local conlIol over pub- lic education, which is an im- portant, highly valued aspect of education in Oregon. "Too often the efforts of school board members go un- recognized," Grauer said. The school board's main goal, is to support student achievement, Grauer added. To achieve that goal, the board fo- cuses on the following needs: Creating a vision for what parents and citizens want their school district to become and how to make student achieve- ment the top priority; Setting standards for what students must learn and be able to do; Assessing whether schools achieve their goals, and whether students are learning; Accounting for the out- comes of decisions and by Irack- ingprogress andreportingresults; Aligning the use of the district's human and financial resources; Creating a safe and orderly climate where students can learn and teachers can teach; Collaborating to solve common problems and to sup- port common successes; and Focusing on continuous improvement by questioning, examining, revising, refining and revisiting issues related to student achievement. There will be an open house from 5:45 to 6 p.m. atthe Sheri- dan District Office on Wednes- day, Jan. 16. "Even though we are mak- ing a special effort during Janu- ary to show appreciation for our school board members, we rec- ognize their contributions re- flect a year-round effort on their part. They are dedicated indi- viduals who are'committed to improving student achievement and to fighting for the best for all of our students," Grauer said. Willamina Superintendent Gus Forster honored his board on Jan. 10 saying this is one of the best boards he's ever worked with. "From my stand point, they're appreciated every month," he said. Forster, who has been a school administrator since 1985, said he is incredibly im- pressed by the way this particu- lar board supports student achievement and learning. "If you're going to be a school board member, it's got to be about the kids," he said. School Menus: Jan. 21 - 25 Free breakfast for all students. All school meals include milk or fruit juice.
