The Breakfast for Books fundraiser hosted by the Sons of the American Legion to sponsor raising funds for the JHS textbook drive was a huge success Saturday May, 2nd, 2010. It was great to see half of Julian turn out for some good eats and help raise money for new English textbooks. With the efforts, support, encouragement, and generous financial donations of the American Legion, The Sons of the American Legion, The Women's Auxiliary, Julian Pie Company, Poway Toyota, The Julian Triangle Club, and a few private citizen donations, we have been able to raise $12,000.007 That is enough to purchase two more class sets (we want to get new English textbooks for each grade level 9-12) and with your help, we can do it! We live in an amazing community that really steps up and helps our kids tremendously. In a time of financial hardship and when the state has no money to fund any educational endeavor, our local community is still able to go above and beyond to help our kids' education be the best and most enriching one available. Thank you Julian, because of you, our children can thrive. Not all the students got to smooze with the breakfast patrons, some had to clean up too.

(NAPSA)-Eight high school students will have an out-of- this- world opportunity this year to design and construct a rocket and launch it into space. The student-designed rocket is expected to be 29 feet tall, weigh over 500 pounds and be capable of reaching the stratosphere. To build the high-power rocket, students received brand-new Sony VAIO C.W series laptops with the all-new Intel(r) Core(tm) processors. Sony has also paired the students with an expert rocketeer mentor to turn their aeronautical dreams into a reality. "The laptops have more computational processing power than some of the first spacecraft to reach the moon. But can a laptop launch a rocket?" asked Thomas Atchison, director of the Association of Rocket Mavericks and a leading figure in the high- power- rocket community. "That is what this extraordinary group of high school students is going to find out, and I am very excited to give them an accelerated course in rocketry and the unique hands-on experience of building something capable of blasting into space." The VAIO Z Series: 13.1" screen, Intel Core i5 Processor with Turbo Boost provides the brains for the rocket, while the VAIO F Series: 16.4" screen, Intel Core i7 Processor with Turbo Boost will serve as mission control for the launch. Also benefiting from the Rocket Project is the nonprofit organization ReadySetLaunch. The organization provides high school students of financially disadvantaged backgrounds with free college counseling. Started by college students at Yale University and run by students for students, the organization works to level the playing field of college admissions by providing access to the crucial advice and mentoring that can make the difference in successfully navigating the often difficult process of college applications. As part of the Rocket Project, Sony and Intel will donate $1 to ReadySetLaunch for every new fan of the Sony Electronics Face-book page, up to $25,000, leading up to the April 2010 conclusion of the project. The Rocket Project will conclude with the students traveling to the famous Black Rock Desert in Nevada to put their experiment to the ultimate test by launching their rocket.

We did a "change" drive and we also worked on a quilting project. Students made a Quick Trip quilt, a pattern out of Quick Trip Quilts, a book by Eleanor Burns. Merry Jo Rembold, a professional Iongtime quilter in Julian, was our instructor. Several of the 6th, 7th and 8th graders had no prior sewing experience but were enthusiastic about helping. There was good participation by the students and no injuries! On three different Friday afternoons sewing machines were brought to the Jr. High Wolf Den. Students took turns sewing the quilt top and they were very proud of their work. Mrs. Pettersen, Club Live advisor, thought the quilt would be an excellent idea for our Haiti fund raising project. When the top was completed, Jessica Nichols and myself quilted the top with little supervision from Merry Jo. The finished product is beautiful! Look for us in town on Wednesday and Saturday afternoons selling raffle tickets, which are $1.00 for one and $5.00 for six. Any questions, please contact Mrs. Pettersen at the unior High (760-765-0575).
