Weekly Warrior by Arroyo Campbell & Kaylon Hall 5/3/17

This week in Downieville High School has been very busy. Both the golf team and the tennis team played hard games. On the tennis side, both Niles and Kyle Bosworth are moving on to the semifinals, on May 8th. But for the rest of them, the tennis season is over. The tennis team this year included Megan Parker, Kaylon Hall, Sierra Folsom, Hunter Davey, Jacob Rust, Niles Bosworth, and Kyle Bosworth. The entire team had a great time playing this year!

The golf team that was started this year has had a lot of fun being coached by Tom Potter. The golf team, consisting of Rosendo Marquez, Ramon Nevarez, and Arroyo Campbell, has played two tournaments so far, the first at Lake Almanor and the second at White Hawk Ranch. Both were fun but neither ended in a victory.

The butterfly watch in Mrs. Galan’s class is over! The students released their butterflies on May 1st! The Kinders are learning how to stay safe in different weather, while the 1st and 2nd grade are learning about ancient times. They are also preparing for a field trip to the Reno Discovery Museum in June.

In Ms. Maire’s 3-5 class is doing a super review to prepare for CAASPP testing coming up. They are also learning about Native Americans and continuing their ceramic projects. Students who turned in most of their Reading Logs had a root beer float party. They are working on starting the garden and working on their nature journals.
Last Saturday, April 29 was the combined Prom for Loyalton and Downieville. The students who attended had a blast! In other high school news the Chemistry class got new tables over spring break and are excited to use them with future experiments. Last week, on April 26, Downieville held a Book Fair and Open House to show parents what the students have been doing in school. The event as a whole went very well. Thank you to the Sierra City Masons for providing their traditional, delicious strawberry shortcake!
