Improving mental health education and treatment on the Plateau By Dennis Box Editor
Plateau residents will see an expansion of services available to those suffering from mental illness and family members caring for someone in a crises. The services include education for family, police, educators and medical personal. There will also be more professional services available for those needing treatment.

A safe place for songbirds By Ray Still Assistant Editor
They’re common enough situations – you’re reading at home when a bird flies into your window, or the family cat comes through the door flap with a still struggling “present” in its jaws. Many people have seen or tried to deal with an injured bird, but their wild and skittish nature makes it impossible for people to help them. So what can you do with an injured bird? Kelley Ward, director of Feather Haven, says to bring it on down to her.
After years of study and preparation, Feather Haven opened its doors in Enumclaw July 2014, and so far, the organization has helped more than 185 wild birds in their sanctuary. “Ever since I was a child, I loved animals,” Ward said. “We are so blessed here on the Plateau with some wonderful wildlife. This is my way of giving back.” The non-profit is 100 percent volunteer staffed and is licensed by both the state and federal Fish and Wildlife departments. A good portion of the birds that Feather Haven rehabilitates arrive with various injuries, and it’s not uncommon for birds to come with infections or fungus, but the majority of the organization’s time goes to
helping baby birds. “They’re orphans, or their nest was removed. Sometime’s they’re simply birdnapped,” Ward said. Birdnapping often occurs when fledgling birds are out of the nest for the first time – they flew out, but can’t fly back, and an unsuspecting passerby may think the bird fell out of its nest and needs help. “It’s natural fledge activity,” said David, Ward’s husband. “They leave the nest, the mom is there watching and will feed it, but people pick them up.” Telltale signs that a fledgling is venturing out for the first time, as opposed to an infant falling, is the bird is feathered and is mobile on the ground. Injuries tend to be the second biggest reason why birds are brought into Feather Haven, but window strikes aren’t the main contributor; it’s cats. “Cat attacks are huge,” Ward said. “We are very big promoters of keeping your cat indoors.” According to a 2011 American Bird Conservancy report, freerange house cats are responsible for killing between 500 million to one billion birds every year. And it’s not just the outright attacks that birds have to worry about – cats can carry a plethora of dangerous bacteria and diseases on their teeth and claws. Even if a bird gets away with a small scratch or bite, an infection can quickly kill
them. Infections and fungus from dirty feeders are also a huge issue for birds. “Some people don’t understand the importance of keeping their feeders clean,” Susan Quinzel, Feather Haven’ volunteer services coordinator, explained. “If you don’t clean that hummingbird feeder, the hummingbird can get a fungus on its tongue where it can’t withdraw its tongue. It’s going to die.” Another common disease found around dirty feeders is called Mycoplasmal conjunctivitis, also known as Finch-eye disease, which creates a crust over the bird’s eye until they can’t see. “Cleaning the feeders is an ongoing process,” David said. “Once a week, take your feeders down, use a weak bleach solution to wash them out and put them back up.” Bird experts don’t recommend using soap because it can leave a residue in the feeder.
To help birds that are sick and injured, Feather Haven will use modern medication and rehabilitation techniques; birds with broken wings get pins inserted, or if they have a concussion or infection, they’re given anti-inflammatories and antibiotics. But that’s close to the extent Kelley and her volunteers will go to use modern treatments. Nearly

Feather Haven is home to three birds who can’t be released because they can’t fly, so they live in a small flight for educational purposes. Pictured here is Mr. Blue, a Stellar’s Jay, and Miss Eve, a Evening Grosbeak. Photo by Ray Still everything else they do is as close to how it is done in nature as they can provide. When it comes to baby birds, Feather Haven does its best to replicate what mom and dad would do. “We spent thousands of dollars in insects this last year,” Ward said. “We use very, very little formula.” Feeding the birds quickly becomes a full time commitment; when they’re naked, Ward feeds them every 15 minutes from morning until night. And that’s the easy part. As they grow up, each bird has to learn its own unique song in order to be successful in the wild. “You have to watch that you’re not placing a robin next to a song sparrow, because they’re going to learn the wrong song,” Quinzel said. “When it comes to breeding time, and they’re out there trying to find a mate, they’re attracting sparrows and wondering ‘why all these sparrows coming to me?’” Once the birds are old enough
to fly and get food on their own, Feather Haven teaches them to forage. “Last year we went out to the fields cutting blocks of grass and put meal worms in the grass so they would be down there pecking, trying to collect them,” Ward said. To prevent the baby birds from imprinting on their human caretakers, Ward and her volunteers refrain from talking to the birds, avoid eye contact and raise the birds in groups, even if that means transporting the bird to another facility, or taking on another bird. “These are wild birds, and we have to keep them that way,” Ward explained. Sick and injured birds get similar treatments. After their various ailments and injuries are diagnosed and treated, often by Bridget Ferguson of Pine Tree Veterinary Hospital in Maple Valley, they’re kept in flights (shed-sized bird

1,000 miles for pulmonary hypertension The Pacing Parson is at it again, and this time he’s walking all over the Plateau and Valley area. Auburn resident Don Stevenson, 80, is walking 1,000 miles for pulmonary hypertension and will be trekking through
Bonney Lake and Sumner in February and March. To walk the 1,000 miles in 10 weeks, Stevenson will have to walk “a lazy” 20 to 30 miles a day, Monday through Friday, he said. “This particular walk I am dedicating to all people

who have this problem,” Stevenson explained. “That’s why I’m carrying oxygen and have a nasal canula… I carry that with me with the walker. I’m doing that the whole thousand miles.” Pulmonary hypertension is when high blood pressure around the lungs and heart make it hard for a person to breathe. In 2010, Washington had one of the highest rates of death by pulmonary hypertension in the country, affecting between 600 and 800 people, according to the CDC. This isn’t the first time Stevenson has walked to raise money and awareness for the disease; he recently completed a 3,000 mile journey from Washington to the District of Colombia. Stevenson dedicated the five month journey to Washington, D.C. to two of the senior members of the church he pastors at in Bonney Lake and a young boy who, because he had pulmonary hypertension, had a successful double lung and heart transplant. The walk to D.C. took

him east to Michigan and then south to Ohio, through West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Maryland, back to Virginia and then ending in the country’s capitol. On the walk, Stevenson met hundreds of people who helped him along the way by donating supplies and giving him room and board. “People were good. I found out America is not the 6 o-clock news,” Stevenson said. “It’s better than that. You really meet good people.” The Pacing Parson has been walking to raise awareness for various diseases and causes since 1998, and has walked more than 50,000 miles since. He started walking after he retired in 1994, using that time to write some books. But he soon felt the need to stretch his legs, and after a couple of months, decided to walk across the country. “But I told my wife, I said, ‘but I don’t want to do it for myself,’” he said. “’If I do it for myself, I won’t make it out of the county.’ Her father died of Alzheimer’s, so I walked for Alzheimer’s and dedicated the walk to her

Random acts of kindness “And you can always, always give something, even if it is only kindness!” The words of Anne Frank from The Diary resound within us. Rachel Scott, the first student killed at Columbine and now a modern day heroine, has added a word to create “A Chain Reaction of Kindness and Compassion”. In 2011 the Enumclaw School District brought us the Rachel’s Challenge movement, and the 2-mile long paper links containing acts of kindness spread at Pete’s Pool changed our culture.

Even small efforts work wonders, so from a full day’s worth of labor, a thank you note or compliment, to even a simple smile or “Hello”, look for opportunities to be kind. You are really doing it for them, but are also doing it for you. Be selfish and have compassion for yourself, accomplished simply with random acts of kindness to others.

Studies show acts of kindness with no expectation of reward decreases stress as well as enhances happiness. Listen attentively and non-judgmentally when another speaks to better understand what might be truly helpful. Pay it forward, creating a cascade of cooperation. Teach children to be givers of kindness, and increase their feelings of happiness and improve their friendships. It is odd to think helping another, which incidentally also elevates their sense of well-being, actually increases your own well-being, but it is true. A win-win for all.

Rules, carrots and vertical superiority Rules are a funny thing. Rules, laws and all the things our mothers told us we had to do often bring out late stages of lunacy. That is certainly not the case with me. When it comes to rules I firmly believe we must clearly understand each rule and enforce all rules come what may. Let me describe a scene that happened to me recently to illustrate my point about following and enforcing the rules. I was getting ready to leave for one of the newspaper offices where I spend my Dennis Box, days aggravating Editor everyone within reach. I was late, but I wanted to make sure I took some food for the road. For some reason when I am driving I get hungry. I was grabbing stuff from the refrigerator and tossing it my bag when Yodie the demon Yorkie sidled up next to me acting like she was my loyal companion for eternity. Yodie is my daughter’s dog. Katy allows me the privilege of taking care of Yodie when it is time for my daughter do fun things. I think I may have done something fun once, but I’m not sure. The word fun makes me twitch and see squiggly snakes floating around in front of my right eye. I found an old carrot in the back drawer of my refrigerator. Finding old food like that always makes me feel like a rule follower. Instead of tossing things out I eat them. It’s like cleaning my plate. Even if it makes me throw up a lot, I’m following rules because it says to in the big rule book. I was basking in this warm, fuzzy tidiness when the demon struck. I saw her run off into the living room and immediately knew she had stolen my carrot. Before she could reach her hidey hole I swooped in and grabbed my carrot from the furry fiend. I rushed back with my carrot and hid it in my bag. What appears to be escaping Yodie’s cruddy cortex is I am vertically higher in the air. This is known as the rule of verticality, which means I get to be in charge. It is in the big rule book. I have pointed this out to her numerous times and all I get is the look that says, “Aren’t I just the cutest little princess you’ve ever seen? Better say yes and give me a treat or I’m telling Katy and then – It’s off to the pecan factory for you.” After securing my orange stick of yummy in my food bag and placing it on the couch, I went to get my coat while keeping a vigilant eye on the evil one. She sat on the couch looking all innocent and hurt. I took my eyes away for an Einstein instant and bang! Beelzebub streaked to my bag, grabbed the carrot and took off with it jammed in her mouth. This was war. We raced around the house at light speed. I finally outsmarted the four-legged lupus, cut her off and trapped her in the living room. At first she flumped flat on the floor with the carrot under her giving me the, “What?” dog look. How dumb does she think I am? When I reached under her to grab the goods, she rolled over and gave me her typical routine, “I’m dying. Have you noticed? Look at my cute little legs flop around. Katy is sure going to be mad.”x When that failed she tried the war-wound limp. That hasn’t worked in months. The battle of wits ended with each of us scowling at one another as I backed out of the house with my wet, scarred carrot. I had won the war, and enforced the rule of verticality. The lesson is: rules are rules and must be properly understood and enforced. Rules are a funny thing, and I still have my carrot.

Admit mistakes and take responsibility Do you know people who stay in the same rut their whole lives? They never change; in fact, as they age they seem to get worse. If you listen to them speak, their mantra is always that someone else was to blame for failures – the government, their political opponent, their spouse, their children’s teachers, the boss, God, whoever. That’s why I find Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson so refreshing. After the Seahawks 10-9 victory against the Vikings, Wilson took responsibility for how poorly the game was played while at the same time praising his teammates for the great job they had done. Russell Wilson continues to grow as a quarterback because he takes responsibility for his own, and sometimes others’, mistakes. That is the
In Focus Richard Elfers Columnist
key to being able to mature in any endeavor. People who blame others, and that’s most of us at times, miss the opportunity to grow. Admitting our mistakes and then working to change our attitude and our actions is the basis for positive change. Blaming others and shifting the burden to others is normal human behavior. Denying reality is a part of this blame game. Unfortunately, it doesn’t bring us the results we would like to see. In most instances when
there is a failure or mistake, someone or some group is fingered as the guilty party: Muslims, immigrants or the media. I’ve made some major mistakes in my life. Part of the problem I had to face about myself was that I either totally blamed myself or I totally blamed others. I eventually came to understand that this was blackand-white thinking. Eventually I matured in my thinking to realize that while I may not have been the total cause of the failure, I was still partly at fault. Being able to accept 30, 40, or 50 percent of the responsibility was easier for me to bear than to take on all of it. It also enabled me to make needed changes in the direction I was going. The point is that making oneself

‘Before I Go to Sleep’: Movie vs. Book
responsible for our actions allows us to see others and ourselves more realistically. Refusing to shoulder the guilt is to avoid facing our own humanity. We’re all flawed creatures who constantly make errors in our judgments and decisions. Sometimes that failure may not show up for a lifetime. Then we look back to see that the decision we made years ago has now come back to bite us in our old age. Had we considered the possibility we may have been wrong, we could have avoided greater damage as that decision continued to create its victims as time progressed. The Enumclaw School Board and the district administration has admitted they made a $3 million miscalculation in the cost of remodeling the high school. As a result, neither the gymnasium nor the auditorium will be part of the $68 million renovation. I must compliment the board and the superinten-
looking through my favorite category, the thriller section. A movie came up called, “Before I Go to Sleep”. I thought it was a weird coincidence until I read the description. It was the movie made from the book I had randomly bought three years before! So naturally, I watched the movie. And it was so intriguingly good. I had to read the book as soon as possible. I like watching movies made from books, it’s exciting seeing books come to life. “Before I Go to Sleep” was no exception, except this was the first time I had watched a movie before reading the book, which in the end turned out to be a better choice. I noticed one thing right away, the movie and the book both follow the main details of the story, although they are structured differently. They both mention Christine and her
dent for admitting the calculation error. Often major mistakes are swept under the rug to reveal themselves a decade or two later. It takes courage and integrity to admit error. Passing blame only diverts attention from the greater challenge – how do we fix it? The district leaders have a big challenge in front of them. It takes courage to figure out ways to change direction based upon the new realities. They need to follow the example set by Russell Wilson. They’ve done the first part. They’ve admitted error. Now they are able to figure out ways to work around the mistaken ideas and thinking that created failure in the first place. None of us want to be the kind of people we all know and see around us who continually blame others for their own failures and who get caught in a rut for a lifetime. Taking responsibility for our part in our failures is the route to growth. The attitudes we choose to hold will determine our life’s trajectory. Russell Wilson is continuing to grow as the
amnesia, her husband and the doctor she is seeing. But, the book focuses a lot on Christine remembering her past while the movie focuses more on the present. Some minor details are changed, such as people’s ages, which affects some of the events and relationships. The details seem to change for cinematic effect. The only peculiar change I noticed was the ending. The ending was more dramatic in the book, which doesn’t make sense since I feel it would have been very easy to visually duplicate, and thus make the ending to the movie even better than it already is. Usually I suggest reading a book and then watching the movie but this time, I suggest watching the movie and then reading the book. The book has much more detail (as books usually do compared to the movies), but with “Before I Go to Sleep”, the movie is definitely lacking some of the details in the book that could have easily been added in. I highly suggest reading the book and/or watching the movie. You won’t be disappointed. They both keep you guessing what is going to happen next and it has such a great twist you won’t see coming.

Imagine waking up every morning and not knowing who or where you are. All you really remember is, you’re in your 20’s, with your whole life ahead of you. But when you look in the mirror, the 20-something you thought you were isn’t staring back. You see pictures around the mirror of the person staring back at you, smiling next to a man you do not recognize, in places you have never seen before. The man in the pictures is in the other room and explains he is your husband, you have been married for 22 years. You had an accident, and your memory is erased every time you go to sleep. This is the reality for Christine Lucas, in “Before I Go to Sleep” by S.J. Watson A few years ago, I was wandering the isles of Barnes and Noble, not looking for anything in particular. I came across the clearance section and picked up a random book that was strewn about. It looked interesting, and it was on sale, so I bought it. Fast forward three years and I still hadn’t read more than 20 pages of the book and it was quietly sitting with the rest of the half read books on my bookshelf.

Get hardy plants in the ground Early February is when nurseries begin to stock bare root roses, fruit trees, shrubs and berry bushes. You can plant strawberry, raspberry, roses and trees now as soon as you see them for sale. Bare root means that these plants will be sold in their dormant state with no soil around the roots. As long as the ground is not frozen you can dig in and start planting these hardy plants. Bare root plants are a great bargain, lightweight and easier to haul home than potted plants. Do I need to remove the foliage from my blooming hellebores? I started adding these winter-blooming plants to my landscape a few years ago after I won a plant at one of your talks. They are doing well but my neighbor insists I must cut back their leaves to keep them healthy. R.P., Puyallup Early spring is a good time to snip off the old foliage from around the stalks of flowering hellebores so you can better enjoy the blooms and to discourage any fungal diseases that thrive on the old foliage. Laid back gardeners can get away with skipping this task for a year or two but in our wet climate hellebores do best when the old leaves are removed. Removing the old leaves is especially important if you see black spots or dark areas on the leaves as this is

Another way to jump start winter blooms is to dig up bulbs of snowdrop, crocus and dwarf daffodils when you see the foliage poking from the ground. Bring the entire bulb indoors and set on a dish of gravel and water to keep the humidity high while the flowers open. The first blossoms of spring are always the most appreciated. • • • For more information, Marianne Binetti can be reached at her Web site, www.binettigarden.com.

Williams says baseball season will be his last By Kevin Hanson Senior Writer
The end of an era is in sight at White River High, where Mike Williams has announced the coming season will be his last as skipper of the Hornet baseball
NPSL 4A sets two divisions By Kevin Hanson Senior Writer
The world of high school athletics continues to spin and some schools still are learning their competitive fate. A major development came Jan. 26 when representatives from the new North Puget Sound League 4A met in Kent to decide how they would split 16 teams into two divisions. Phil Engebretsen, athletic director at Enumclaw High School, said a handful of factors entered into the decision. Considered were lost class time for student-athletes, travel time, geographic proximity and intra-district play. In the end it was decided to form an Olympic Division and a Cascade Division. Included in the Olympic will be Enumclaw, Federal Way, Decatur, Todd Beamer, Thomas Jefferson, Auburn, Auburn Mountainview and Auburn Riverside. In the Cascade Division will be Kentlake, Kent-Meridian, Kentridge, Kentwood, Kennedy, Mount Rainier, Hazen and Tahoma. The alignment is solid for the next two school years. NPSL 4A representatives agreed to reconsider the alignment following the 2017-18 school year, Engebretsen said, if member schools feel another look is warranted.

SUPERINTENDENT’S MESSAGE Kindergarten registration has officially kicked off! We welcome new kindergartners and families to the Sumner School District. What an important and exciting time! I get a thrill watching the children who come with parents for information and registration. Hands gently intertwined and connected to their first teacher – the parent – preparing to meet their next teacher – the kindergarten teacher. Here in the Sumner School District one of our core values is a commitment to early learning and development. It is amazing what a 1-5 yr old brain can do. As young children are active and eager learners, our early learning programs are developmentally appropriate and academically rigorous. The expectation of what a young mind can learn is braided into a playful and intentional kindergarten program for students and families. Our commitment to exceptional early learning drives the Early Learning Center project that is currently a component of the February 9 Capital Facilities Bond. If passed, an Early Learning Center in the Sumner valley would support young learners through scale and space. Research shows, young children learn through play and by exploring and interacting with their environment. They need classrooms and outdoor play spaces that are markedly different from traditional elementary school classrooms and playgrounds. Spaces designed for early learners feel comfortable by having appropriate scale and design. The design encourages children to explore, be self-directed and invite self-expression. Integrating the outdoor and the indoor environment allows children to interact with their peers and with nature. Spaces would be structured, yet flexible to meet the ever-changing needs of young students. Combining a space specifically designed for young learners with an appropriate and academically rigorous early learning curriculum is an ideal model. In addition, by moving kindergarten and preschool classrooms out of Daffodil Valley and Maple Lawn Elementary, it would open up classrooms; reducing crowding at these schools.
SCHOOL BOARD NOTES At the January meeting the Board of Directors … APPROVED the 2016-17 School Year calendar agreed upon by District Administration and the Sumner Education Association (SEA). APPROVED the technology services fiber upgrade allowing the district to increase bandwidth capacity and technology offerings. School Board Recognition month is the month of January. As such, the District honored the Board of Directors for their dedication and hard work in leading the district and preparing students for a successful future.
KINDERGARTEN REGISTRATION Kindergarten Registration has begun. All children enrolling for kindergarten for the coming school year must be five years old by August 31, prior to the start of the school year. Visit the Sumner School District Website for information about kindergarten programs and registration or visit your neighborhood school. The District offers free full-time kindergarten programs at all elementary schools.
TEACHER TUESDAY Every Tuesday school is in session a teacher is recognized in the Sumner School District for impacting student success and making a difference. This is a weekly opportunity for us to honor the hard work teachers do all year long and say “thank you!” If you’d like to nominate a teacher to be recognized, email email@example.com.

Math activities, technology and engineering projects will be featured along with science fair projects at this annual event, and held in conjunction with the District Art Show. STEM Fairs give students the opportunity to model the work of professional research scientists. Students who develop science projects learn or improve their skills in scientific method and experimentation, logical thinking and problem solving, writing and public speaking, and advanced library research. The District STEM Fair represents first, second, and third place winners from each grade level at every school, along with two honorable mention entries. Students will present projects to science fair judges, with the top projects moving on to regional competition in March. The STEM Fair will be held in conjunction with the 7th annual District Art Show.

WILLIAMS FROM 11 River High program in 1989. He then made stops in Yelm and Enumclaw before taking
over the White River program for good in 1997. “I owe a great deal of debt to Keith Banks for hiring me in 1989 as a 23-yearold head coach. That’s what
got me started,” Williams wrote in an email. He also reserves praise for Jim Meyerhoff, a former White River athletic director “for taking me aside and giving

me some advice.” During his 19 years as a head coach Williams has built a record of 221-184 and led his teams to 15 playoff appearances, four league championships and two appearances in the state tournament. Despite the numbers and accolades – he has been league Coach of the Year five times – Williams chooses to defer to those who helped turn around the Hornet diamond program. He singled out the following for their impact on the baseball program: • James Congdon, a longtime manager during his high school career. • Jon Verde, who once played all nine positions in a game for White River. “He was a trooper that bought in to what I was trying to accomplish.” • Jason Parlari, a Hornet wrestler that had never
played baseball, but turned out for baseball his senior year because he had been Williams’ student assistant. “(He) was an outstanding teammate and is a friend to this day.” • Butch Loney, who had two boys in the baseball program, ran White River’s first booster club. “Had zero hidden agenda and was a great, positive supporter.” • The entire 1989 team. “They established the foundation for how we were going to play the game and it has carried through ’til today. Hard nosed, scrappy, underdogs, tough kids that don’t make excuses.” • Tim Kolisch, a “crafty pitcher and shortstop who was the epitome of a friend and teammate.” The White River baseball program has grown and become successful, Williams said, due to the help of many assistants who not only
coached, but helped build fields and did everything from painting to raking. Among those supporters, Williams cites Ron Balmer, Gaylen Hahto, Kevin Alfano, Jer Argo, Bob Brooks, Cody Mothershead, Scott Campbell, Connor Williams, Jeff Emerson, Brady Vanhoof, Jeremy Curtin, John Schumacher. Troy Rasmussen, Troy Stroud and Ryan Manowski. Under the heading of “impact players” during his time as Hornet skipper, Williams rattles off an impressive list: Kyle Nearhood, Joe and Jeff Sprouse, Jason Osborne, Paul Weed, Jesse McClung, Brad Addink, AJ Huttenlocker, Jason Erickson, Cody Ryckman, Payden Cawley-Lamb, Connor Williams, Dustin Stroud, Tanner Williams, Cole Johnson, Trevor Lubking, Zach Rohrbach and Riley Johnson.

Egg Drop Soup
Ingredients: 4 eggs (scrambled) 1/4 cup chopped green onion 4 whole shitake mushrooms 2 carrots (shredded or diced) tablespoon sesame oil tablespoon cornstarch 48 ounces chicken broth tablespoon turmeric soy sauce salt/pepper to taste Directions: Saute veggies, add broth and bring to a rolling boil, add beaten eggs and simmer for 5 minutes, stirring gently. NOTE: After serving the soup, Clayton determined to add more flavor and some sweetness, he would suggest adding corn.
Ingredients: 1/4 cup soy sauce (use the less sodium kind
to make less salty) 1 tablespoon brown sugar 1-2 cloves garlic, finely chopped (OK to use the minced) 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, finely chopped 2 tablespoon vegetable oil 15 ounces Yakisoba noodles 2/3 cup celery, chopped diagonally 1/2 medium onion, thinly sliced 1/4 of a large cabbage ground black pepper, to taste Directions: Combine soy sauce, brown sugar, garlic, ginger and black pepper; set aside. Remove noodles from packages and discard the included flavoring packets. Run the noodles under hot water or soften them up for a minute in the microwave.

Add cabbage and saute another few
minutes until soft. Add the sauce mixture and heat through. Once it’s all warm, add the noodles and carefully break them up in the pan using the warm sauce mixture. Mix all together and serve with your favorite stir fry. NOTE: You can add chicken or any kind of meat to make it a full meal.

While the Washington Interscholastic Activities Association has wrapped up its reclassification process, the final word hasn’t been handed down regarding league alignments. Chris Gibson, athletic director at White River High, reported there still could be changes to the South Puget Sound League’s 2A division. The present eight-team layout has already grown to 10, which will require two divisions. Still to be decided is the fate of Renton and Lindbergh; if those two wind up without a league, they could be headed to the SPSL 2A. There was hope for some resolution during a Tuesday meeting.

TRAFFIC FROM 1 Council that we would apply for this spring to do the design work,” Palmer said. If the city secures state funding by the time the legislative session ends on March 10, the plan is to ask the Puget Sound Regional Council for $1.65 million to cover the bulk of the design costs. The city also hopes that Sound Transit will kick in around $100,000 because
the company plans to build a 500 stall garage in the area, but according to Palmer, that project is contingent on the interchange being improved. Other sources of funding include local support from other cities and private companies for around $150,000 and a grant match for another $550,000. According to the city, it’s important to secure funding for design planning and permitting this year because the Puget Sound Regional Council and Transportation
Improvement Board make grants available every two years. This means if the city misses the 2018 window for construction planning, it could be a while before any improvements are made. Current projections estimate construction will cost $14.7 million. Ideal funding situations involve the city securing $10.7 million in grants and the legislature help cover the remaining $4 million shortfall.-

Superintendent’s Message STEM Program at WRHS Student Success Award Bond Update Agricultural Science Program Jump Rope for Heart Calendar of Events
A GLIMPSE INTO THE FUTURE OF STEM AT WHITE RIVER
MESSAGE FROM JANEL Left, Janel Keating, Superintendent and right, Meagan Rhoades, Assessment Manager
As the administrative team worked to provide information about the building needs for the upcoming bond, we learned a lot of valuable information about the history of the White River School District. We discovered the hopes and dreams for the students in 1905 were very similar to the hopes and dreams we have for our students in 2016. In 1905, the first high school class graduated from what was then named Buckley High School. There were four students in that class, two young men and two young women. Part of the salutatory address from that graduation ceremony read, “Some of us, and it is to be hoped that all, will place that goal (graduation) one step higher which would be a college course. We all, by this time, ought to realize the value of an education for we, the coming men (and women) of America, must be educated in order that we may fill our positions in life to the greatest possible advantage to ourselves and our country.” Those words are perhaps more true today than in 1905! But more than that, those words show the importance education has always had in this community. We are proud that White River schools have continued the expectation of lofty goals from our graduates. Today, we are preparing students for jobs and job skills that perhaps don’t even exist yet. It is so important that our schools have the tools to set that foundation. Do you know that out of eight buildings in our district, six of them were built well before the World Wide Web, digital cellular networks, or 3G networks even existed? Thanks to amazing work by our custodial and maintenance crews through the years most of our buildings do not look their age, but the bottom line is they weren’t built, or wired, for today’s needs – in both technology and safety. We look forward to many more graduating classes who fill their positions in life to the greatest possible advantage to themselves and their country, and we know we are on the right path to continue guiding them in that direction. The stakes are high! These are OUR children, OUR future. They deserve to be educated at high levels in 21st Century classrooms, not merely required to attend school. Janel Keating, Superintendent and Meagan Rhoades, Assessment Manager
As part of our mission to ensure that White River students are engaged in high levels of learning and graduating ready for college and career, we continue to build our STEM offerings at Glacier Middle School and White River High School, and also infuse STEM learning at the elementary level. STEM courses integrate Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics and apply relevant learning so that students are engaged in rigorous curriculum. Teachers in our elementary schools are providing opportunities for students to engage in engineering practices and bring STEM to life for these young minds. Students are involved in inquiry based learning, applying their knowledge, and using engineering principles to solve real world problems. We are excited for the opportunities that may be created with the passing of the bond and new construction at Glacier Middle School. Glacier currently offers opportunities for students to enroll in Robotics and Creative Solutions and this year students have the ability to join the First Tech Challenge robotics team and compete and demonstrate their robotics knowledge and skills. As we look ahead, there are many possibilities for STEM growth which includes the implementation of Project Lead the Way, for which the district won a competitive grant in the amount of $35,000 to cover teacher training, supplies and equipment. We are also hoping to incorporate an outdoor learning area around Environmental Science, and add a more diverse computer applications course. White River High School will be introducing a new Biomedical Pathway for the 16-17 school year which includes three year-long consecutive courses that helps prepare students for careers in the Health Science field. Also in 2016-17, we will open a class in AP Computer Science Principles which will introduce students to the foundational concepts of computer science and challenge them to explore how computing and technology can impact the world. As we look ahead, there are many other possible offerings such as Food Science, Sustainable Resources, and Green Technologies. These courses will enhance the current STEM offerings which include courses like Robotics, Pre-Engineering, Biotechnology, and AP Environmental Science.
As we continue to ask our students to develop their critical thinking skills, we continue to implement best practices. STEM is not an idea, it’s the future. Paid advertisement.

Bond Information Update
White River Pride Runs Deep
Needed renovations for Glacier Middl School and Elk Ridge Elementary include in 2016 Bond
Two of the largest projects included in the 2016 White River Bond are focused on major renovations at Glacier Middle School and Elk Ridge Elementary. At Glacier, several of the buildings there were built in the 60s, and there are 16 classrooms in portables. These have served us well, but the time has come to make this campus, which was formerly our high school, into a school better tooled to the needs of middle level students in the 21st Century. Elk Ridge is also slated for major renovation and the addition of several more classrooms to accommodate expected growth in our community. Built in 1969, we are proud of the way our custodial and maintenance staff have kept this building looking its best. Doing both the major renovation to the existing building, while adding 30,000 square feet at the same time will save money in the long run, and help us keep up with expected population increases in the area.
STUDENT SUCCESS AWARD White River School District has completed construction of an accessible playground that is also developmentally appropriate for preschool aged children. The playground is located at Mountain Meadow Elementary School and will serve students enrolled in the District’s Developmental Preschool Program. The playground was funded with the support of the Mountain Meadow PTA, the White River Education Foundation, HELAC Corporation, and the White River School District. The playground provides an outdoor learning environment accessible to all preschool age children regardless of disability where they can practice social, motor, and communication skills. Like all the District outdoor equipment, the playground is available to the community outside school hours and on weekends.
JUMP ROPE FOR HEART
WHITE RIVER AGRICULTURAL SCIENCE PROGRAM White River Agriculture Science Program has been honored as the District II Agriculture Program of the Year. Area teachers chose to recognize Todd Miller and Austin Baker’s program due to the continued advancement of the courses, quality SAE (supervised agriculture education) projects, and their outstanding FFA Chapter. They appreciate the diversity of course offerings that lead to numerous career pathways, integration of science and art, and providing a model to other programs. The program is recognized by both WSU and U of I as elite programs and they often seek student teacher placement within our program. They recognized the FFA program for their ability to produce leaders and their success in Career Development Events at the state level. Please congratulate Mr. Miller and Mr Baker on this accomplishment. Austin Baker was also chosen as the District II Rookie Teacher of the Year. Austin has worked to develop positive relationships with all students in his courses, develop new and innovative curriculum, lead White River FFA, and help to continue to move the program forward. We are so fortunate to have him as a member of the WRHS, CTE, and Agriculture Science Program team.
You make us proud!
Calendar of Events
All elementary schools in White River are participating in the Jump Rope for Heart fundraiser for the American Heart Association for the second year in a row. Last year our community raised over $30,000, and White River School District was recognized by the American Heart Association as one of the districts of the year.
February 9 February 9
This year the Jump Rope for Heart culminating celebration events will take place on the following dates: February 11 Foothills Elementary and Wilkeson Elementary , February 19 - Mountain Meadow Elementary, and February 26 at Elk Ridge Elementary . Each school will start fundraising two weeks prior to the event. Over those two weeks, PE classes will be involved in a jump rope unit. The elementary PE teachers believe in teaching our students the importance of giving back to others while promoting physical fitness.
