Weekly Warrior by Eliane Campbell 1/10/18

Welcome back Weekly Warrior readers! I hope you all had a wonderful winter break and a happy New Year. To start off, before the break Mrs. Bosworth’s K-3rd class had a gingerbread man hunt. They went around the school looking for clues to find where he was hiding. The high school students had a fun Christmas party, sharing secret Santa gifts and eating some yummy snacks.
Mrs. Bosworth’s K-3rd grade class has had a pretty busy new year. They are finishing their stuck-in-a-snow-globe writings, which will be hung up in the hallway soon, for everyone to see. The class has started a 1-3 math Prodigy online skill program and the 3rd graders have started state test prep. Mrs. Bosworth’s class has received a grant from the Sierra Schools Foundation for a tour and hands on project at the Crocker Art Museum.
The 4-6th grade class has also been doing some exciting things, too. The class did book reports over the winter break and they are starting math meetings. Ms. Maire’s class is studying ancient history and the body system.
For the high school side the math and science finals are next week, so it’s time to start studying. Ms. Bolle’s tech class has started a new coding program that they are very excited about. The tech class also got a grant from Sierra Schools Foundation to participate in Sea Perch, a navy competition in San Jose. The DHS students will submit their submersible in a competition against a lot of other schools. The 7th and 8th grade class is working on 2-point perspective drawings and they will study the Yuba Restoration Proposal in science. A reminder that there is tutoring every Tuesday, Thursday and Friday after school.
We would like to congratulate our teacher Mr. Boli and his fiancée Christina on their new baby boy, William!
The varsity boy’s basketball team went to the Elk Creek tournament on the 15 and 16th of December, and they won their game against Elk Creek. They also had a game in Providence on the 19th. Sadly we lost but the team played awesome in the 2nd and 4th quarters. On December 20 we had Junior High and Varsity games against Ipakanni. Gillian Rust made the first shot in the Junior High game with a great jump shot. Unfortunately we lost both games but only by four points in the Junior High game and the high school put up a great fight.
Now for some announcements. Next week on Wednesday the 17th and Friday the 19th there will be 2 varsity home games, the first against Loyalton and the second against Greenville. Don’t forget Friday the 19th is the end of the semester.
That’s all from Downieville School this week. I hope you all have a happy new year!
