1. Letter to the Editor: Teacher Appreciation Week

pencil.sharpTo the Editor:

Teacher Appreciation Week started Monday May 7th. We would like to not only thank all of our Sherman County teachers, but all of the instructional aides, administration, assistants, secretaries, substitutes and staff that go above and beyond to help teach our students. We love our Sherman County Teachers!

Sincerely,

Sherman County Parent Teacher Organization


2. Take a Husky to Work

arrow.blueswishTake a Husky to Work is a program in which parents, guardians and community members can share their work and careers with the students of Sherman County. They take pictures of Gus the Husky as they go about their regular day. They also fill out a questionnaire so we can learn more about them, their talents, and what they learned in school that helps them in their jobs and life today.

Gus the Husky has been all over our county as well as to the bottom of The Dalles Dam a couple of times, care facilities and doctors’ offices, ranches and farms here and in our neighboring state, advertising offices, city halls, college, waste facilities, patrol cars, garden nurseries and even another school just over the river. We appreciate getting to know you, your career and how you used what you learned in school to help you today.

The Sherman County Parent Teacher Organization is appreciative of everyone who participated in Take a Husky to Work for 2017-2018!


3. The One and Only You

Did you know that you have a gift that no one else in the world possesses? Maybe you have already discovered it, although it isn’t waiting for you wrapped in pretty paper and ribbon.

This special gift is your ability to live a life that expresses your unique personality and your individual talents through the work that you choose to do, the way you spend your free time and through your relationships.

Although it may seem hidden at first, when you search for your gift with an open mind and a free spirit, it will be there. Once you have found it, if you follow it with courage and persistence, it will reward you with a happiness and deep satisfaction nothing else can provide.

Now, it does not matter how big or important you think your gift is. All that matters is that it is yours and that you are free to give it. When you do give it, it doesn’t deplete you – it validates and fills you, because true, no-strings-attached giving reaffirms the meaning of life.

It is hard to go comparison-shopping when it comes to finding your special gift, because you can’t try on someone else’s life. However, in order to really live your own life, you need to be willing to listen to your heart, pay whatever it costs, and make a firm commitment not to turn back, and be happy that you have the choice. If you do these things, you will find your gift.

You will also find that you have more to give to others than you ever dreamed possible. ~The Pacific Institute

7. Ancient Fruitcake: What really really old food tells us about history, culture, love and memory, May 10

Thursday, May 10

7:00 pm – 8:00 pm

Father’s House Fellowship

207 S. Klickitat (enter at the Court Street entrance)

Humanities Washington speaker, Harriet Baskas’ talk is not about the old leftovers in the fridge. It is about food that is so old, so unusual, or so meaningful, that no one dares throw it away.

Discover the foods archeologists have found buried with mummies, the petrified banana so appealing it sparked a Banana Museum, the 350-year-old fruitcake handed down through generations, 2000-year-old bog butter; and the pickle that has been in a jar since the 1860s.

During this “chew and chat,” author and broadcaster Harriet Baskas explores how and why these and other formerly fresh foods may have been forgotten, intentionally tucked away, or preserved due to unusual or peculiar circumstances. And, more importantly, we’ll talk about how these and other vintage vittles can and do hold memories, tell stories, and connect us with family, culture, and history.
