Page I0- Wednesday, October 15. 19gn Wrom Jefferson School By DENA GAMBETTA All the state required testing is finished at Jef- ferson School, and it is tabulated and scored. Thanks to June Zanzi, who corrected all of the tests and tabulated them, it saved school personnel many hours. June volunteers her time each year to do this great job. We all from Jefferson School say a big thank you, June. All the students are all individually tested on the STAIR reading tests. These tests consist of the dolch words, most used nouns, naming the capitol and small letters of the alphabet, recognizing diagraphs, blends, how to mark vowels, recognizing synonyms, antonyms, and homonyms, plus knowing compound words, suffixes, prefixes, placement of letters in the alphabet, and how to alphabetize words in the first and second places. In this way the teacher will know where to place the student, and where he-she needs special help. All the teachers, aides and special teachers are already helping and working with students needing this help. Also, the volunteers are a great help in this area. On Tuesday of this week, some25 teachers and aides attended the first session of a workshop sponsored by the school, called "sanity in the classroom." This deals mostly with proper discipline, how to recognize different discipline in dif- ferent students, positive approaches, etc. This workshop goes on for four more weeks with November 4 being the last day. The Sonoma County of Education publishes a monthly tabloid, in which it states pertinent news, such as workshops, school libraries, library courses, teaching activities available and new films. They also publish very important news relating to schools. This week they published an interesting news article entitled Proficiency test for seniors. Perhaps this does not relate to Jefferson School at this time, but will affect your child in the future. For the first time, California students must demonstrate mastery of basic remedial skills before graduation, as required by Assembly Bill 3408. If seniors flunk the proficiency tests in reading, mathematics, and writing, they will fail to earn a high school diploma. All pupils must be tested at least once in grades 4-6, once in grades 7-9 and again in grades 10-11. (This is the minimum required by law.) High school students who fail proficiency tests must be invited, along with a parent or guardian, to confer with school officials on how to help the student master the required basic skills. Remedial instruction must be provided until the student has, in the words of the law, "ben given numerous opporth.ties to achieve mastery." Content, degree of difficulty and passing levels of the proficiency tests must be determined byiocal school f boards. Thank you to all the fine volunteers who are coming regularly. We do need more volunteers to maintain an equal number time please, if you to spare, Last week during Fire Prevention Week, Kevin Moore, Cloverdale Fireman visited Jefferson Elementary School in a fire truck to explain the Fire Department&apos;s equipment and its use to the kindergarteners and first graders. was presented with a fireman's hat. Photos WITH LOVE "We all think we have problems until we learn of the death h young mother, just 24 years old, whose only wish it was to live long enough to see her son celebrate his birthday." We are all shocked and sympathize when we think a young life Ires been terminated too soon. But too often, unless we are 1losely related or friends of this young life, we leave it at all too soon we forget. But I believe, as many do, each life and each moment has to offer...so, I went to Jan's family for con- my beliefs. I was not disappointed. I found what [ was looking for and more. And so, remembering the tears in mother's eyes I offer these few words: Jan, with love, From the many friends who visited these past trying days found they had not "given" as they had intended but in- had received. From the sister in law who said with great love, "She made want to go home and hug your child !" From the sister who found herself a stronger person shared pain and suffering. Her words, "Jan was She helped everyone. She prayed to live to raise own baby, but she knew that it wasn't possible. Toward She said she was ready and she was of the pain. Some how, I know I have become stronger luse of her." From the friend who felt Jan's inner strength even over the and noted that no one ever left her with a "down" From the doctor who said, "She was an amazing young One of the strongest patients I have ever known with will and the fight to live." who thought, "She had the most amazing I have ever known." Before she died, Jan asked her brother and his wife to care heT child and to raise him as their own, saying, "I just will be able to watch over him." never wavered in the belief that she would omelw be near and able to watch over her son as he grows, [n faci I toward the end it became stronger. She also believed plat this life and the next were so closely related she said, |'We will hardly notice the difference." | "Last May Jan was told she had less than two weeks to live lit her own desire and will to fight and to live long enough t she received her one wish, which was to live long enough [o' see her baby celebrate his birthday. | Those who knew Jan and those of us who only knew about er believe sincerely that she is indeed somewhere near, arching over and caring for her only child, he son, who elebrated his first birthday on August 23, 1980. !: \\; BAVARIA GERMANY Add Charm.and, Beauty to YourTable at a Price You Can Afford Blue Carland Pattern  M .4 , '::TL= % t i Outstanding Features: Imported Bavarian Porcelain q_ Dishwasher Safe Durable--High Fired _q Craze Resistant _q Fine Bell-like Tone q_ Open Stock Availability q_ Translucent Body  Pure Platinum Trim | / 20-Piece Set in Forever Spring Pattern T M , :;a :" .
