,Aq Page 8, Cloverdale Reveille, January 22, 1997 Lice Head lice has become more of a problem in homes, daycare, preschools and elementary school in the past few years. Pres- ently we can expect that one child out of 10 or more will con- tract head lice by the time they reach sixth grade. Cleanliness is no barrier to contracting head lice. Head lice may attack any- one with equal zest and knows no socioeconomic barriers. Treating lice tends to be a lot of work? All of the heads in the family need to be treated as well as thorough cleaning of bedding, clothing and the home. Most people are very good about fol- lowing these steps. The problem arises when lice are resistent and r?turn. It is incredibly frus- trating to make sure that lice are eradicated. Every nit needs to be pulled from the hair. Oiten the combs don't work effective- ly. Each egg case must be re- moved using fingernails. It is very time consuming, especially with an energetic youngster. At the present time, the over- the-counter lice preparations containing pyrethrins are very effective in killing lice and nits. Research in the last two years has shown that the 1% Lindane is the least effective in killing lice. It is thought that lice are becoming resistent to this prod- uct. Concerned and informed parents+effective lice control-no baby lice? Brainwave Brainwave is an innovative fund-raiser which links raising money for extras in the class- room to the curriculum knowl- edge of the students. In the spring students will be able to exhibit academic skills through a competitive and supportive competition. They will answer all questions in small groups oral- ly in each classroom. Every grade level has prepared a list of ques- tions which will be asked. Before Brainwave day, students will collect monetary pledges based on how many questions they answer correctly Brainwave is a county-wide fund-raiser and is sponsored by the CARE (Cloverdale Adds Re- sources for Education) Founda- tion. It has been the most successful moneyraiser and for some schools has brought in sev- eral thousand dollars. Teachers and parents like it because it does focus on existing curricu- lum and encourages learning. Students like it because its fun. There are incentives and they get to choose a nonprofit organi- zation that will receive 10% of the funds Students will be rais- ing money for their own class and money that the CARE Foun- dation will use to fund grants. February 12th is Brainwave Kickoff Day! There will be an assembly at 8:15 and another at 9:15. The chosen nonprofit orga- nizations will be represented ando enthusiasm for the fund-raisers will be generated. Inservices Days will be held Jan. 31 and Feb. 3 for the entire Cloverdale School district. Jef- ferson School staff will partici- pate in health presentations, a seminar for new teachers, and time will also be spent on the school's REACH plan.

The faculty and administra- tion at Jefferson Elementary School have identified reading literacy to be a curriculum focus, beginning with the 1995-96 school year. As a result of plan- ning efforts, training of teach- ers, instructional assistants, new measures of reading perfor- mance in kindergarten through third grades are showing progress toward the outcome of demonstrating that, by the end of third grade, all children are reading at or above grade level. Measure so reading skills which relate to grade level per- formance were obtained for the first time in June, 1996. Approx- imately one half of the first grad- ers demonstrated below grade level reading skills. This num- ber dropped to 20% for second grade students. Third grades reported 26% were reading be- low grade level. This data sug- gests that approximately 3/4 of the second and third grade stu- dents were reading at or above grade level. Efforts of the teach- ers and students are paying off. ,% ,,,: United Church of Cloverdale 11 AM Sunday Worship 11"=25 Sunday School for Grades KSth Nursery Care provided for infants and todlers Gayle Waring, Pastor Jan]ca Timm.

This issue was brought to the attention of the kinder- garten through third grade chil- dren by the Clo- verdale High School Future Homemakers of America (FHA- Linda IIIsley HERO) stu- dents. The high school FHA- HERO chapter has chosen traf- fic safety education as their major community outreach project for this school year. Jennifer Tegnell and Alex McNulty are spearheading this project. They invited a roller- blade instructor from Star Skate World to give a presentation to all students at Jefferson School. FHA-HERO member Michael Doolan was on hand to intro- duce her and give her a warm welcome. Linda Illsley is an experienced rollerblade instructor who was wilting to give an afternoon to this endeavor.

Freshwater would continue to be available at the state and federal pumps. Salinity intrusion into drink- ing water supplies from the Del- ta is not a problem, according to David Spath, Chief of the Drink- ing Water Program for the State Department of Health Services. Spath said the huge storm run- off of fresh water through the Delta makes salinity intrusion impossible. "From the salinity standpoint, we view'it as a non- issue," said Spath. "We're not looking at this as a water treat- ment problem." Spath indicated that Califor- nia's water systems are equipped with "more than adequate treat- ment" capability to assure disin- fection and safety of local water sources and supplies affected by inundation, Spath said.
