Lux continues By Doug Miller, Principal Pat Lux has acted as the district EA.M.E. coordinator since its inception in 1992. Through her focused and committed leadership, she has helped to maintain the high profile of this K-5 fine arts program. When you visit Fauiconer Grade School, notice the framed prints hanging in the main hall. These prints are from the first year of EA.M.E. Pat has taken it upon herself to have the artists' prints framed for both Faulconer and Chapman. She has personally absorbed the cost at this time, but I am working to find funds to reim- burse her for the cost of the materi- als ($125/school/set). Enrollment at Faulconer Grade School as of Oct. 5 is 261 students. This includes 68 in 3rd grade, 40 in 2nd grade, 40 in blended, 53 in 1st grade and 60 in kindergarten.

By Kathy Sumners, Principal Open House, Volunteer Fair, Hal- loween Party! Many activities have been going on at Grand Ronde Elementary during the past month. We had a very successful open house with many students showing their parents around the school including the new music/band room and the book fair. We would like to give a special thanks to Vernon Kennedy and Dwayne Manyhides from the Confederated Tribes of Grand Ronde and their students who provided us with real atmosphere in the form of drumming and chanting in our covered area during the open house. Thank you to all parents who purchased or allowed their children to purchase books at our book fair. We made enough money for the school to purchase a new 27" television and a VCR for use in the classrooms. Donna Halleck, Grand Ronde Elementary School teacher and our site council chairperson, held a volunteer fair on Oct. 10 that invited parents interested in volunteering at the school to come to the school for an orientation. We had several par- ents who were interested and many who are already working in the classrooms. As the saying goes, "It takes a village to raise a child," and indeed, in education, the more peo- ple who pitch in, the better job we can do. Thanks to all of these people for their interest and support. Your presence gives a message to every- one that you care about education. The students need you.
