While looking at a calendar it would seem as though the season would drag on and on, but in reality the season moves faster than anyone can imagine. The high school soccer season is separated into four individual areas preseason, non-league, league matches and post season matches and awards. Every season begins with the anticipation of what may happen and this year was no different. Riding the momentum built over the last year, the team finished last year with some strong outings and the hope of things to come. So with a bright future on the horizon more than twenty players began training for the upcoming year. Among the new arrivals are five freshmen and several upper classmen who look to take the program to heights never seen before. The season began with back-to-back wins in both a kick-off scrimmage against Mission Vista High School and the first regular season game against River Valley. With those games, Eddie Silva (Soph), Brian Garcia (Fr) and Jordan Postal (Sr) showed that they were going to be a force for the rest of the season on offense; while our strong defense, was going to be anchored by Gio Santorumn (Sr) and Jesse Lopez (Sr). Our non-league schedule was limited by the fact that we are in both a large, but a very strong league. However, our non-league schedule was highlighted by the entry into the Firebird tournament over the first two days of the winter break. The highlight of the tournament was the final game the team played against another strong opponent in Maranatha Christian. The game featured two teams that had faced off the Planting The Seeds Of The Future For Science Day by Kathleen Beck Kathleen Beck hands out some worms for the school children to inspect. photos by Jeff Holt On March 31st Julian Thank you to the many Elementary School hosted volunteers that helped with Science Day 2011 which VMF's Science Day station: Chris provided an opportunity for the Elisara, Sheana Fry, Felicia Hill, Volcan Mountain Foundation Jeff Holt; and Colleen Bradley- (VMF) to educate area students Kaltenthaler. L i Spencer Valley School Performs A Very Shakespearian "As You Like It" story by Lanson Moles "All the world's a stage," explains Jaques (pronounced "Jake'-qwees), "and all the men and women merely players: they have their exits and their entrances; and one man in his time plays many parts..." This beloved Shakespearean comedy treats fairness, forgiveness, how urban politics can fall into a rotten state, and the practical and romantic aspects of love. The 31 actors from pre- Kindergarten to 7th Grade presented Shakespeare's"As You Like It" was preformed Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, March 29, 30, and 31. The show opened with a discordant yet charming dance by the Old Schoolhouse players, grades Pre-k through 2. The top-hatted dancers, all in black, [ performed on a starkly black and 1 white set. That urban landscape mirrored the fact that the good duke had been sent into exile by his bad brother while tyrant Sir Oliver disgraces the memory of his beloved late father. Things become prettier and (slightly) less discordant when the action moves to the forest of Arden, where life is hard, but charity prevails. While the younger students took parts as dancers, EMT's, and gamboling goats, the Ritchie Hall students, grades 3 through 7, memorized prodigious quantities of lines, learned their blocking, and added their own creative ideas for making the play funnier, clearer for the audience, or more dramatic.

VMF Education Coordinator, Kathleen Beck, taught the students about forests from the ground up, beginning with the soil and the creatures that help make the soil fertile and rich--worms! They dug through compost for the worms and observed them up close and personalthrough magnifying glasses. This activity was followed by songs and lessons that helped them understand about the importance of native plants and our ecosystem. All students planted native seed balls donated by Ramona's Wildlife Research Institute using recycled milk cartons that they brought from home or cups formed out of the Julian News, which uses soy- based inks. That means the paper will decompose right into the ground without too much inorganic material entering the soil upon plantingua recycling lesson in itself. The seed balls in the cups are a control study to see what comes up. The sixth-graders planted cedar saplings as well as taking some seed balls that will help to landscape the banks of the school campus. The seed balls ....

The script was shortened, but not otherwise changed from the original, adapted by local author and director, Don Winslow. Wednesday's performance was a dinner theater and silent auction as a benefit for the Spencer Valley Educational Foundation. As usual with Shakespeare characters, women disguised as men lead to confusion and the wrong people falling in love. In a tour de force of problem solving, Rosalind, disguised as "Ganymede," a man, brings all the right pairs together for the wedding at the end, and is reunited with her father, the banished duke. This performance ended with a classic folk dance to the tune, "Hole In The Wall." previous week in Julian. While were filled with seeds from our banquet and pre-fair with our chapter.
