Since then it has spread to all kinds of communities, each with their own unique approach. The "take what you need, give what you can" concept changes both the giver and the receiver. The only qualification for using the box is being human. People leave food and basic human needs and people take what they need. Items that shopuld not be left in the box are alcoholic beverages, over the counter and perscription medications of tems that could be We humbly thank those who made this box and this day possible. Harry and Sabina of Wynola Pizza and the Wynola Pizza staff for generously sharing their space in a leap of faith in our project. ALL of our box captains who check the box and make sure things are O.K. and Every person who takes a moment to pick up a few extra items to stock our box. Julian Cuyamaca Volunteer Firefighters for sponsoring, assembling and driving the box to its spot and setting it up- anything we asked was done! Nico and Heather of Candied Apple for donating time and pastries so that we can reach our goal of a second box very soon! Thank you to the community of Julian for being supportive and generous to each other because you are what will make this box bless others — both those who give and those who receive. Heather Rowell organized, planned and then threw an opening day party for the “Blessings Box” Little Free Pantry. Set up just outside Wynola Pizza. Grand Opening ‘A Little Free Pantry’ In Wynola WASC Time Again At The High School The Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ACS WASC), a world-renowned accrediting association and one of the six regional accrediting agencies in the United States, works closely with the Office of Overseas Schools under the U.S. Department of State. ACS WASC provides assistance to schools worldwide, primarily in California, Hawaii, Guam, Asia, the Pacific Region, the Middle East, Africa, and Europe. Sunsay started the process of re-accreditation at Julian High School with a tour of the school led by students, It will continue through Wednesday as staff will meet with the committee on progress the school is making in producing students ready to move forward with their lives. The Accrediting Commission for Schools, WASC, extends its Strides Being Made In The Julian High School FFA Throughout Julian Union High School's history, there have been many organizations. Each one has had an impact on students, teachers, and the community. One of these organizations is the National FFA organization. FFA has been around since 1928. That is 90 years! In those 90 years, it has evolved and become a national organization that has changed the lives of many people. When most people think of FFA they only think about animals and farming, but that is not the case. There are so many more opportunities Just recently there was a new addition made to the Julian Union High school staff, Curtis Martineau. Along with teaching five classes, some of which are vocational education, he has taken on the laborious task of being the new Julian High School FFA advisor. When he took over the program there wasn't very much participation. He started to advertise FFA and the potential that it has. More and more students began to join! One of these opportunities is the speech competition, which includes mock job interview, extemporaneous, impromptu, creed, and prepared public speaking. This year Rylie Boyd, Nick Carneiro, Makayla Lucas and Nicole Arias competed in impromptu, advance prepared, and job interview. This year the competition was held at Poway High School. Sophomore, Nicole Arias who participated in the mock job interview was the only one who placed high enough in her competition, to move on to the southern section regional, at the Poway competition, Nikki placed third qualifying her to move on to the southern region competition On March 20th, 2018 the regionals were held at Cal Poly Pomona. In the mock interview, there were 14 students, each who had placed third or better at their section competition. It was every competitors goal to advance to state. This time Nicole Arias placed 5th just barely missing the opportunity of going to state by one place. This was her very first time in FFA and she was one of the very few underclassmen that participated in the job interview competition. “This was truly a great experience. FFA has truly changed people’s lives and every day makes an impact on somebody’s life.” Nikki hopes to go to the State level next year with the goal of winning. Hillside Church recently went on a humanitarian/mission trip to Malawi. The seven-member team left Julian on April 13 and returned April 25. Working closely with PB&J (Peanut Butter & Jesus), Nkhoma Hospital, and AfriCare Orphanage, the team worked tirelessly to help different villages, the hospital, and orphanage in many ways. PB&J is an organization that wants to reduce the number of Hillside Church Mission In Malawi Standing L-R: Alyssa Dornon, Wade Wylie, Nichol (Nurse/Founder of Nkhoma AfriCare Orphanage), Pastor Rick Seated L-R: Pracilla (Manager of PB&J’s Hope’s Inn), Danae Massa, Kris Coates, Carissa Dornon, Samantha Massa According to measurements taken by volunteers on Julian’s Sky Quality Monitoring (SQM) team, the month of May has some of the darkest nights of the year, and four planets will be “best in show” this May. Jupiter is in opposition to the Sun (exactly on the opposite side of the Earth from the Sun) starting on May 8th, and this means that Jupiter is up virtually the entire night and the planet and its four Galilean moons are at their brightest during the month. You should be able to see the two major cloud bands on Jupiter, the South and North Equatorial Belts, separated by a whiter zone. Jupiter will appear low in the southeast in the constellation Libra all month. Venus will appear in the west-northwest near the constellation Gemini for a few hours after sunset and it will set about 2 ½ hours after sunset by the end of May. Saturn rises in the southeast just after midnight on May 1st and about two hours earlier on May 31st. Finally, Mars rises in the east-southeast after 1:30 a.m. on May 1st and a little after midnight on May 31st. I told readers last year that May is the month for beautiful globular clusters, and we took a look at M5 (Messier Object 5) in the constellation Serpens Caput. This year turn your binoculars to M3, also one of the largest globular clusters in the northern hemisphere. Recall that globular clusters are the mysterious giant balls of stars (between 100,000 and 1,000,000 stars) that orbit our Milky Way galaxy (and other galaxies) in highly elliptical orbits well outside the galactic disk where most of the galaxy’s stars orbit. Astronomers estimate that there may be 150-200 of these globular clusters orbiting our Milky Way galaxy, and that at least some of these clusters may be the cores of smaller galaxies that formed in the early universe before our own Milky Way and were absorbed by our galaxy later in its development. Although M3 is actually in the constellation Canes Venatici (the Hunting Dogs), the easiest way to find it is to locate the two brightest stars in the Coma Star Cluster (nearly overhead in the constellation Coma Berenices located just south of Canes Venatici) and draw an imaginary line running east-west about as long as your extended fist between those two stars. If you extend that line another 50% longer to the east, you will come to a very bright fuzzy ball that is M3. This globular cluster has been described as “a stellar-like core surrounded by a gradually fading halo”. This fuzzy ball contains an estimated 500,000 stars. The peak of the Eta Aquariid meteor shower will be in the predawn hours of May 6th. The radiant (source point) for this shower is the constellation Aquarius, which appears low in the east about 90 minutes before sunrise. However, this year’s meteor shower will be accompanied by a waning gibbous Moon, so the sky conditions will be less than ideal.
