Why don’t plants get sunburns? – Elijah Dear Elijah, That’s a great observation. For as much time as plants spend outside in the sun, we really don’t see too many with a sunburn. I decided to take your burning question to my friend Cynthia Gleason. She’s a plant scientist at WSU and knows a lot about plant defense. Plants actually make their own kind of sun block, she said. It helps protect them from the sun’s intense ultraviolet rays. “Unlike humans, plants can’t just move into the shade or put on a hat when the sun gets too intense,” Gleason explained. “Of course, plants also can’t slather on sunscreen.” As you may know, plants need sun to make their own food, as well as the oxygen we all breathe. Plants face an interesting challenge because they need sun, Gleason said, but not too much sun. Otherwise, they might shrivel up, turn yellow, or even die. Scientists weren’t really sure how plants avoided getting burnt to a crisp, until a few years ago when a group of researchers investigated a question very similar to yours. They found when plants get too stressed out from the sun, they start to make their own kind of sun block. Not like the sunscreen that humans squeeze out of a bottle or spray on, but it still blocks the ultraviolet light. The plant’s sun block is actually a combination of special molecules that form in the plant’s tissue, join together to create a compound that blocks the ultraviolet light. These compounds still allow other kinds of sunlight to pass through. That way, the plant can still make its own food—without turning into a lobster. Plants aren’t the only living things that make their own concoction of chemicals to stay safe in the sun either. Some zebra fish create a compound that protects them from the sun, too. Even hippos make a kind of orange sweat that helps protect them from ultraviolet rays. The sun is not only good for plants, but also for us. It gives us Vitamin D that our bodies use to help our bones stay strong. Thankfully, for humans, chemists have invented sunscreen to keep you safe from the sun’s rays while exploring outside. And luckily for us cats and other critters, we can usually find a nice shady tree. Sincerely, Dr. Universe Details: askdruniverse.wsu.edu

Holy Multifaceted Issue Batman!
What is the OSPI Superintendent Suggesting?? By Dean Kinzer, Pullman Public Schools Board of Directors
Superintendent of Public Instruction Chris Reykdal in a speech on May 24th encapsulated a new long-term plan to redesign the K-12 education system in Washington State. He laid out three phases of his plan. The first phase would address defining basic education and funding it. The second phase would focus on research and policy transition in creating “meaningful” pathways to high school graduation. The third phase would include teaching dual languages beginning in kindergarten plus increasing the number of minutes per day, the number of school days, minutes for lunch, and recesses for K-8 students.
our current system the average student will lose 2.6 months of math skills and 2 months of reading skills during summer break. It can take 6 weeks of school in the fall to re-learn the skills they have lost. Research shows that the Summer Learning Loss affects low income students the most. Often their parents or guardians don’t have the time or resources to mitigate this issue. Two thirds of the income-based achievement gap is attributed to Summer Learning Loss.
Moving to Year Round School would be a major paradigm shift for most schools and would certainly not be Superintendent Maxwell believes as easy as flipping a switch. Reykdal those goals would bring us closer to estimates it would cost at least $4 aligning with other industrial nations’ billion in additional funding per year at education systems and that the additional the state level. That does not includes contact time with students would be a any of the local increases in spending tremendous benefit to our students. Dr. or the capital upgrades each district Maxwell said that Reykdal has some lofty would need to retrofit buildings to goals. Dr. Maxwell also said that it would accommodate those hot summer days. be very helpful if the State would pay for The actual total cost could easily be 3 professional learning days for school staff. times the original estimate. The third phase that Superintendent Reykdal is proposing would be a radical change to the traditional school year. Historically, the traditional school year was tethered to an agrarian calendar due to the need to have children helping on the farms during the planting and harvesting seasons. Due to technological advances in farming practices and machinery, much less manual labor is needed. For instance, when I was young my Dad would pull together a crew of about ten people (mostly teenagers) to haul and stack hay in our barn. Today we have machinery that enables one person to haul more hay faster than that entire crew used to be able to do and expend no more energy than you would driving a truck. Reykdal is proposing lengthening the school day by an hour and the school year by twenty days. We would essentially be transitioning to a “Year Round School” calendar. Doing so could have profound benefits for our school children. We all know that knowledge on average is doubling every twelve months currently. If we expect our schools to keep up, something is going to have to change. Albert Einstein defined insanity as: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Do we want different results? One of the largest benefits would be to eliminate what used to be called Summer Regression. It is now referred to as the Summer Slide, Summer Learning Loss, or Brain Drain. Research shows that having breaks from school longer than three weeks results in the loss of knowledge and skills. Under
In keeping with “Always Doing What is Best for the Kids” I would hope that we can move toward “Year Round School.” We would have more but shorter breaks all through the year which would also reduce burnout both in our students and staff plus all the benefits mentioned earlier in this article. I wouldn’t mind hearing your thoughts on moving toward more hours in a school day and more school days in a year. As always I thank you for your support of the Pullman School District. Have a great summer!

Fourth Graders Make History Come Alive! Pam Brantner, Sunnyside Elementary Principal
Pullman Community Update 7
Schools Implement a Snack Pantry Program Once again it is my turn to write a Board article for the Community Update. I decided to write about the wonderful Snack Pantry Program that was started this year at Jefferson and Franklin elementary schools—so I went to the source: the amazing Linhda Sagen who is the fabulous person behind the Snack Pantry Program. Linhda recently came to our Board meeting and presented on the program. The following is authored by Linhda and I thank her very much for taking the time and making the effort to not only set up the program, but to share with us. -Susan Weed, Pullman Public Schools Board of Directors Pullman School District’s pilot Weekend Snack Pantry Program is currently taking place at Jefferson and Franklin Elementary schools. This snack program was implemented through the district Wellness Committee and considered vital in helping the growing need in our community with food insecurity (the state of being without reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food.). This supplemental food program directly supports the health of student families in need. Hunger negatively impacts the ability to learn. Many circumstances in life can lead families to struggle with accessing enough food. At this time, students from Jefferson and Franklin are provided with food packs for weekends and long school breaks—we also include food for younger siblings not yet enrolled in school. The goal of this program is to create better learning situations, so our students can be successful learners. Food packs are distributed once per week, before school dismissal on Friday afternoons, or on the last day before an extended weekend. The Weekend Snack Pantry Program is need-based, at the discretion of families. A simple form to register for the program can be acquired at the schools.
Each spring the halls of Sunnyside Elementary come alive with history. As you walk the corridor you come across Amelia Earhart describing her adventures, you turn the corner and John Glenn is telling you about his trip to the moon and then further down the hall you will meet other historically influential people. No, you have not traveled back in time. You are witnessing the end product of a month long hands-on history unit in fourth grade. Through this unit the teachers integrate reading, writing, public speaking, and art. Students research a historical figure, write a first person biography, memorize the biography, create a costume and paint a setting all in preparation for the big night. Families, community members and fellow students are invited to come and experience the lives of these historical figures. The hard work and preparation is evident and leaves the visitors in awe. Through this hands-on learning experience the fourth grade team is not able to only teach history but fully engage their students in multiple disciplines in a fun and captivating way.

Jefferson Elementary Parent Teacher Association (PTA) launched this program in April to be a road map for the other schools in our district as well as our surrounding communities to help start a program in their community. The PTA took over the task of setting up the program as well as connecting with community programs such as Backyard Harvest, Community Action Center, and YMCA. In addition, resources from businesses and generous community members helped provide support for the start-up and future support. We hope to partner with other community programs in order to be more sustainable throughout the school year. Also, throughout the year, the schools hold food drives to stock the pantry as well. If you would like to help, we appreciate volunteer time and donations directly to Jefferson and Franklin Elementary schools. Please contact Jefferson (509-332-2617) or Franklin (509-334-5641) PTA for more information or ways to become involved in the Weekend Snack Pantry Program.
Digital Responsibility Pam Brantner, Sunnyside Elementary Principal We all know growing up is difficult, but today’s youth face a world filled with even more challenges. Not in a million years would we have expected our everyday activities to be broadcasted on social media- this ranges from text, Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook and countless others. The prevalence of these methods of communication has trickled down to the elementary level where students as young as first grade have phones on them. While this may seem harmless, in fact these young students are experiencing the effects of this technology. We all know that technology offers great opportunities for students to connect, create, collaborate, and learn. But with so many digital tools available, it’s not always easy to find the best ones—and it’s often even harder to figure out what to do with the tools once you have them. Educators today also have to navigate the challenges that this technology brings to the classroom—from not enough broadband to the behavioral and social issues that many students experience, like cyberbullying and digital drama, oversharing of information, digital cheating and plagiarism, and not understanding how to analyze and evaluate the credibility of websites. For more information on this topic look at common sense mediaDigital Citizenship https://www.commonsensemedia.org/educators/certification. The following safety tips have been compiled by the FBI to facilitate student safety: • Establish a good relationship with kids, talk to your child about telling you right away if they read anything on the internet that makes them feel uncomfortable • Control the online environment. Don't allow kids to use a screen profile or provide personal information online such as full name, home address, school name, or telephone number • Teach your child not to plan personal visits with people they have met online While technology has become an integral part of our lives and they see us use it on a daily basis, we need to remember to take the time to educate our children to keep them safe in this digital world.

Community Action Center
Senior Gardening Club and Class for “Food, Fun, and Friends”
Senior Gardening Club kicked off this spring with weekly meetings Fridays at 1:30. The Senior Gardening Club maintains Community Action Center’s gardens and plans future garden projects at Community Action Center… all while learning from each other’s gardening expertise. Each week features a food tasting with fresh garden produce. Along with the Senior Gardening Club, Community Action Center launched a gardening and nutrition class for senior citizens. The class, called “Energize Your Life,” meets once a month. It features information and skill sharing on the best way to design and plant gardens for the best food value, taste, and nutrition. The class also incorporates physical fitness activities and nutrition information. For example, a kinesiology intern from WSU led the class in a series of gardening stretches at the first meeting. Gardens and Nutrition Specialist Joe Astorino said he has gotten a lot of positive feedback on Senior Gardening Club and the class.
“We are all about food, fun, and friends.” Astorino said. “People are asking questions and learning from each other. One woman told me how important it is for her to stay active with scheduled activities. This group really does that. Once you have that energy from gardening and stretching, it spills over into other parts of the day. It affects how you shop and what you eat. It gives you inspiration.” For more information on Senior Gardening Club or Energize Your Life, please call Community Action Center at 509-334-9147 and ask for Joe. Classes are held the following dates from 1:00-2:30 and folks can register at the CAC main desk or calling in advance. • June 23rd • July 28th • August 25th • September 22nd Senior Gardening Club meets Fridays 1:30-2:30PM (when there is not a class scheduled) starting June 30th throughout the growing season. Folks can register at arrival.
Palouse Tables Project to Investigate Regional Hunger There’s a hidden battle on the Palouse—the fight against hunger. Last year, 18% of all Whitman and Latah County residents reported running out of food and not having money to buy more, compared to 13% nationwide. That number jumps to 50% for low-income Pullman residents. Many of the poorest residents of the Palouse live in “food deserts” where cheap, healthy food is not available. Going to the store is not a given, as these residents often do not have the transportation or gas money needed to buy affordable food. The 2016 Community Needs Assessment uncovered these findings and more, but led to more questions than it answered. What is the “face” of hunger? What do folks do when they need food or transportation to the store? What positive assets have people and communities developed in their quest to access food? What are the underlying conditions that lead to hunger? The Palouse Tables Project, which will kick off in November, will investigate all aspects of hunger on the Palouse and engage people who are experiencing hunger to “discover, dream, and design” solutions to the food issues they face. Called a “comprehensive food security assessment,” the project is the brainchild of the Whitman County Food Coalition. The project will give local organizations that work to end hunger a roadmap for action, based directly on input and ideas from the people they serve. It will also help all Whitman County Food Coalition members by strengthening collaboration and creating new information to inform their work. Community Action Center received a $20,000 grant from the Inland Northwest Community Foundation last month to host the project, including providing project management and office space and supplies for a researcher. Community Action Center will work closely with Council on Aging and Human Services and Backyard Harvest, along with other Coalition members, to hold town hall meetings in 13 communities on the Palouse and interview a variety of different people experiencing hunger.

Pullman Community Update 11
Meet the Staff: Cheryl Starkey, Family Development Specialist How long have you worked at Community Action Center? I’ve been here for two years. I started as an intern in May 2015, and then was hired in November 2015. Describe what you do at Community Action Center. I do a little bit of everything. They ask, I do! I take food donations, help people through the food bank, and help people sign up for food stamps; it’s called SNAP. I also help with clients sign up for energy assistance and clothing vouchers. I’m kind of in an administrative role on a lot of our services. For example, I request the contracts for clothing vouchers. I also keep track of client numbers, all donations, and volunteer hours, and put that information into funding reports. What’s special about your job? I have two kids; they are 29 and 30 now. This job is so special to me, because Community Action Center helped me out years ago with food and Section 8 housing, being a single mom and raising two kids. What do you do in your free time? I like to make cakes and do crafts. I just baked four cakes last night! Two are for church, we’ve got anniversaries coming up. One is for a 90th birthday party, and one is for a special friend who is turning nine. I always go to his birthday party and bake his birthday cake. I am the official cake decorator at church and I teach Sunday school, at St. James. I like to create things with my hands. I do needlepoint and scrapbooking, and I make most of my own cards instead of buying them. What is your favorite animal and why? I had a lot of cats growing up, and they’ve always meant a lot to me. Now I have live cats and stuffed bears! Animals are important to me. They’re calming, and they love you unconditionally. Unless you’re gone for a few weeks, then they snub you!
Meet the Volunteer: Suzanne St. Pierre What is your day job? I am retired. How long have you volunteered at CAC? I started after I retired. I just really needed some physical work. I probably heard about it in the Pullman Community Update, and I liked it so much I haven’t left. What type of volunteer jobs do you do? Two days a week I stock shelves in the Community Food Bank. I maintain the back stocks and do inventory control. What keeps you coming back? Originally it was just to get out of the house for a while. I stay because of the amazing work that comes out of that building. Not just in the Community Food Bank, but in other programs as well. It’s a bright, friendly place to be and I really enjoy the people there. What do you do in your free time? I garden in a big way. My husband and I like to travel. We have a camper van, and all my life I have been a great fan of the Sunday drive. We just finished a giant extended Sunday drive to Bozeman and back. Three hours per day was a lot of driving for us, and we just explored the West. I just love the countryside. I’m Pullman born and raised, and I went to college here. I was so committed to the landscape that I never left. What is your favorite animal and why? It would have to be a bird. They have a lack of restraint in their movement.

Follow fireworks rules for fun and safety Several fireworks stands in Pullman open July 1 when it will be legal to purchase fireworks in town. However, it isn’t legal to use these fireworks until July 3. Pullman City Code limits the time to discharge consumer fireworks legally to: • July 3 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 11 p.m. • July 4 between the hours of 9 a.m. and midnight Any discharge of fireworks outside these time periods is a violation of the fireworks ordinance and could result in a civil penalty of $100. All fireworks stands in the city of Pullman have been inspected and are selling only legal fireworks. Therefore, if you purchase fireworks in Pullman, you may set them off in Pullman. If you purchase them outside of the city, buyer beware! Two of the most popular fireworks that are illegal are firecrackers and bottle rockets. Possession of illegal fireworks is a criminal misdemeanor. In addition, individual fireworks are not allowed in Sunnyside Park during the community celebration, to be held on Tuesday, July 4. To reduce emergency responses to fireworks incidents, it is critical that children ages 14 and younger are supervised. Talk to your kids about fireworks and safety. Set family boundaries. Only adults should light fireworks. Fireworks should be stored in a secure location out of the reach and sight of curious children. Be a good neighbor and clean up your spent fireworks in a timely manner. Personal fireworks require personal responsibility. For public safety and to safeguard school facilities, school property is off limits to fireworks. Pullman School District has asked the Pullman Police Department to enforce this fireworks restriction. Pullman Police officers will actively patrol for fireworks violations and have been instructed to assertively enforce the fireworks ordinance. Those found with illegal fireworks, or discharging fireworks outside of the allowable time periods, can expect a citation.

Is paradise calling your name? One of the best ways to enjoy summer is in your very own paradise—a paradise that limits the need for water, minimizes the need for ongoing maintenance and is beautiful. Now that sounds like paradise. Additional benefits of drought resistant landscaping include saving money on your water bill, helping relieve pressure on our aquifer, doing less maintenance once established, and the opportunity to create beauty and engage in relaxing spaces. The practice of planting drought tolerant species-both native and naturalized--and installing accents like rocks, boulders and attractive mulch, is a practice that goes by many names, but ultimately provides you with a drought resistant landscape. The city of Pullman offers lawn removal credits of up to $150. That means you can earn a rebate for removing existing lawn space and replacing it with drought tolerant plantings. There are many ways to achieve the look you are hoping for. There are plants that fit every soil type, aspect and microclimate. For a flash of color this summer, consider beautiful species such as poppies (Eschscholzia californica), common dianthus (Dianthus plumarius), lupins (Lupinus sp.), and blanket flower (Gaillardia aristata). Native grasses such as bluegrasses (Poa spp.), Idaho fescue (Festuca idahoensis), and Junegrass (Koeleria cristata, K. macrantha), provide texture and height. Also, creeping vegetation, like wooly thyme (Thymus pseudolanuginosus), sedum (sedum sp.), and Bearberry or kinnikinnick (Arctostaphylos uva-ursi) are fun and easy ways to start small, knowing that they will expand and spread each year. Rocks, boulders and mulch are nice accents and create ground cover to help keep moisture in. We challenge you to learn more about drought resistant landscaping, also known as Wisescape®, lawn removal credits, toilet rebates and other water conservation measures by visiting PullmanConserves. com. For additional questions, please contact Maintenance and Operation Superintendent Art Garro, at (509) 338-3242. Take care and be water aware.

Spokane Falls Community Colleges
Graduation 2017 was great! Each year, commencement produces a bittersweet moment. We say goodbye to a group of students with whom we have shared experiences, knowledge, worldview-altering discussions, lots of laughter, and sometimes even tears. We bid farewell to the student leaders who helped shape the tenor of campus life and brought their own vitality and new ideas. We also get to share with them a moment of lasting triumph. They have earned a degree, certificate, or diploma and taken a huge step toward securing a brighter future for themselves, their families, and their community. This year’s graduates demonstrated particular grit, as they weathered the uncertainty we experienced in 2016 and led the charge when we moved to WSU. It was a true pleasure to be a part of this year’s celebration that honored our graduates.

ASSISTANT DEAN’S MESSAGE
We just finished our first quarter on WSU’s campus, and I have to say, it has gone even better than I hoped it would. The folks at WSU have been fantastic to work with. The provost’s office, advisors, student financial services leadership, Rec Center staff, facilities staff, parking staff and leadership, librarians, and people throughout the university have been helpful, accommodating, resourceful, and friendly. And being on campus has been great for our students. The libraries are close by. Transfer counselors are available just around the corner. WSU advisors and financial aid staff will be coming to talk with and help our students. And to top it off, we are surrounded by that great WSU college “vibe.” I’m really looking forward to the fall quarter when classes get rolling again and to the future in general; it’s looking bright!
We are at a new location. New mailing address: PO Box 896, Pullman, WA 99163. Our new physical address is at 185 Veterans Way, the building just to the east of Daggy Hall on WSU’s campus. Our main phone number, email, and website have stayed the same: 509-332-2706 • Pullman@Spokanefalls.edu • www.Pullman.Spokane.edu
Announcement: Starting in the Fall, We’ll Offer ABE in the Evening In addition to our current morning schedule, we will be offering Adult Basic Education in the evening starting in the fall quarter (which begins September 20th). The evening offering will cover Basic Skills, GED prep, preparing for college, and Basic Computing. Tuition for the quarter is only $25 total, and there are scholarships available to cover even that cost. The evening ABE program will be available from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m. Nearby WSU parking is free after 5:00. So, if you or someone you know is interested in getting their GED, preparing for college, or improving their basic math, English, or computer skills, give us a call or come by and visit for more information.
Hello! I am Breiton Haug, the new president of SFCC-Pullman’s Associated Student Government (ASG). ASG brings events and activities to its students. This year we had incredibly fun events such as a giant laser tag battle at the Cougar Entertainment Center, a self-defense demonstration, and an end-of-the-year barbeque. We recently created a “MondayFun-Day” event that is a monthly occurrence. Students can bring a game or some food to the event and get a free SFCC-Pullman T-shirt. We want to improve our students’ time at SFCC by listening to their ideas and thoughts to help us deliver new and exciting events. I have lived in Pullman since I was two years old and was homeschooled with my family until 4th grade. I took three years of public school until my parents took me out to homeschool me again with an occasional collegelevel class mixed in. At the age of sixteen, I started my first year of full-time college at SFCC-Pullman, working on my AA as a Running Start student. Now I am seventeen years old with one year of college under my belt. By spring next year, I hope to have graduated with my AA and a high school diploma. At the moment, I do not know what I want to major in when I transfer. I have always had a fascination for film and photography, so I am thinking of going into media and broadcasting. Without SFCC-Pullman and its students, I would not be where I am today. SFCC was my ticket into Running Start. The staff is extremely kind and helpful. They have helped me through every challenge I can think of. The students here are so welcoming; they are the reason I am in ASG in the first place. They convinced me to join Film club and ASG, and now I am the president of both! The students and the employees at SFCC-Pullman keep me motivated to go further and take on new challenges.
