This and that

Our local elementary students participated in the state Mathcounts competition in Sacramento last Saturday. They all did very well, but lost to older students from other areas. We are very proud of them and know they will keep doing well in future competitions.

With the change in this column from weekly to every other week, it is really important that you let me know any upcoming activities, etc., as early as possible, so I can meet our deadline. I appreciate all your help and input very much.
