SHS students await first report cards By Amy Overholser Correspondent, The Sun As the end of the first nine-week grading period comes to an end, students have become more alert to their grades and aware that report cards are to be sent home next week. A sign to students that the grading iperiod is almost,over could be the PSAT (Practice SAT) tests taken last Tuesday by the sophomores and juniors. These tests show students the kind of test needed to be taken in their senior year and gives them an opportunity to see just what the test will he like. Another sign that the grading period is almost over could be the last week of fall sports. Volleyball ended last Thursday when Sheridan and WiUamina met once again. Cross country went to district last week and the football team made their final stand in Willamina Friday night. It could also be the tests that all seem to pile up on week number nine to determine thefinal grade, or the tremendous amount of home- work hauled home each night of that final week. Most of all, they all realize that the nine weeks are over when they have no school on that last Friday and have the weekend to relax until their parents receive their report card. Perhaps this is why many of the juniors and seniors attended the college fairs last week. One was held at Linfield college and had around 50 representatives from two year, four year, and private colleges, trade schools, armed forces and apprenticeship programs. The other was the International College Fair held in Portland on Friday with colleges from all :over the United States. From these, the students had an opportunity to look at different colleges and perhaps choose the one they wish to attend. Faulconer's Parent Night is detailed There are two kinds of children, those who are teen-agers and those who will be teen-agers. Parents and teachers were entertained by the stories of Betsy Geddes as she spoke about Discipline with Love and Logic at the Faulconer Parent Night on Oct. 15. Her two hour presentation was illustrated by her personal and pro- fessional experiences as parent and educator. By interacting with chil- dren in a way that gets children thinking about their actions, there is a better chance they will be able to handle the day-to-day responsibili- ties of adults. Discipline with Love and Logic is an approach to working with chil- dren that promotes responsibility. This common sense way of interact- ing with children takes practice and training. The Faulconer staff will continue working with Betsy Geddes throughout the year. We are fortunate to have many high school students who already show and act responsibly. While parents were at the Faulconer Parent night, 13 students in Mary Krick's Early Childhood Class provided chiidcare at Sheridan High School. The Faulconer staff would like to thank Mrs. Krick, Mr. Prough and the following students for contribut- ing the time and energy to providing quality childcare for Faulconer stu- dents: Marcus Vollman, Melissa Wertz, Carrie Widdison, Debbie Woodcock, Ren6 Yoder, Carly Aaron, Jonell Mills, Yvonne Salis- bury, Robyn Houston, Gina Zamora, Heather Anderson, Brian Diehl, Dennis Tabor, Teresa Miller, Ste- phani Smith, Kathy Lyon, Angel Southern and Jennie Sandels. The Sheridan PTA provided cookies and coffee for the adults who attended the parent night. All expenses for the Faulconer Parent Night were paid from Faulconer Grade School's HB 2020 Grant. Water rights hearing told Sheridan hikes Do you know your Water Rgh. fe, when wate,,,sage is exem water, sewer Oregon Water Laws are changing and when a permit or a water right is hookup charges and the changes may affect you. Do :you know that you need a Water ight to put water in storage? These and many other questions will be answered in the OSU Exten- sion Service program on Water Rights, reports Pat Swan, OSU Extension agent in Polk County. The program will be held in the Exten- sion office meeting room at the Academy building in Dallas at 7 p.m. Thursday, November 7. Participants will learn how water is regulated in Oregon and how Water Rights are granted and trans- needed. Also included is informa- tion about sources of information and how to go through the process of applying for a Water Right. Reed Marbut of Water Resources Depart- ment will explain the adjudication process and new laws that may be affecting your water rights. To register, visit or call the Exten- sion Office, 623-8395 and ask for a blue registration flyer. Complete the flyer and return it to the Extension office before November 1. The workshop is free, but pre- registration is required. While Measure 5 may be saving Sheridan property taxpayers a liule money this year it is forcing the city to increase water and sewer hookup fees for new developments. Based on a private consultant's study, the city council is expected to increase hookup rates to $2,226 for a single-family home, up from $1,850. Under the new rate schedule, it will cost $750 for a 3/4 inch waterline hookup and a $616 system development charge.
