4. Sherman School District Seeks Volunteers for Track & Field Events

sports.javelin-throwTrack and Field season is upon us once again. Sherman County High School Track and Field team will be hosting the annual Sherman County Invitational home meet on April 29, 2017 in Moro.  Field events will start at 11:00 AM and Track events will begin at 1:00 PM. We are looking for parents, guardians and community members to help us out once again by volunteering to run events throughout the day. Volunteer duties range from running the clipboard at field event to measuring competitor’s jumps/throws.

It truly takes a whole community to run a track meet and we are grateful to have such a supporting community. All of the support from parents and community members in running this meet has paid off over the years and we are fortunate enough to get a spotlight and sponsorship by Nike this year for our meet.

To continue to produce such a successful event again this year, I am in need of your help. To run the events at our track meet, it takes a minimum of 30 volunteers. If you are willing to volunteer your time and assist with the meet, please contact me. The more volunteers that we have, the easier events will go and we can rotate volunteers out so they can go watch their athletes compete.

The events that volunteers are needed for are: Boys/Girls Javelin (4-6),  Boys Shot Put (3-4), Girls Shot Put (3-4), Boys & Girls Discus (4-6), Boy & Girls High Jump (3), Boys Long & Triple Jump (4-5), Girls Long & Triple Jump (4-5), and Boy & Girls Pole Vault (3).

As a way to give back and thank our volunteers, I will be ordering each volunteer a Sherman Invitational T-Shirt to wear on the meet day while they are assisting with the events. Please email me your shirt size so that I can get these ordered ASAP.

If you would be interested in volunteering your time to this event it would be much appreciated. Please contact Kyle Pfeifer at 541-565-3500 or (Fastest means of Contact) with the event you are interested in volunteering for and your shirt size. It is my hope to get the T-shirts ordered by Wednesday March 15, 2017.

Thank you,

7. It Begins with the Mind

Can the mind help cure disease? What role do the emotions play in preventing illness?

What is the relationship between the thoughts you think, the feelings you experience, and the overall health and well-being of your body? This is a very old question, but modern science has developed some innovative ways to determine the answers. And, while what they are finding may startle some people, it doesn’t come as a big surprise.

It turns out that improving the quality of your life lowers your chances of developing serious mental and physical illness and also improves the speed and likelihood of your recovery. And if you want to improve the quality of your life, you must start by improving the quality of your thinking.

You see, the quality of everything that happens to you in life – all of your accomplishments, all your behaviors and activities, all your relationships – are rooted in and based on what goes on in your mind. Your beliefs and expectations determine what you try or don’t try, how hard you try, and whether you give up or ultimately succeed.

Your thoughts about who you are and what you are like determine those with whom you associate, what you take into your body and how you care for yourself and others. So if you are interested in improving your likelihood of living a long and healthy life, take a long and careful look at your belief system and spend some time examining your thoughts and values, as well.

If you don’t like what you see, remember, you can change it. You have it within you. You always have. ~ The Pacific Institute
