Numa: Fifth-grade students gathered in the cafeteria for a presentation from Churchill County Middle School band, choir, administration, and staff. Students learned about electives offered at CCMS, signing up for classes, and the Blended Learning Community. Principal Wickware and office staff will go to fifth-grade classrooms in the coming weeks to start helping students sign up for their sixth-grade classes. There will be a field trip to CCMS in May and an open house event before school starts so they can find their classrooms. Students were sent home with information regarding signing up for weeks. If families have questions regarding this process, they can contact Milana Lattin at CCMS by calling 775-423-7701 or emailing [email protected].

E.C. Best: Reading Specialist Linda Rasmussen and Librarian Jennifer Sanchez created a March Madness Reading Tournament. Sanchez made the bracket bulletin board by the library. Rasmussen chose the books for the brackets, and teachers read the books with their students each week, with the students placing their votes. The competition is nearing an end, and only four books are in the running. Second-grade classes will vote between “Pete the Cat” and “How to Drive Your Sister Crazy,” and third-grade classes will vote between “Bad Kitty School Daze” and “There Was an Old Mermaid Who Swallowed a Shark.” 

Lahontan: Students in Stacey Manning’s first-grade class spent last week learning about turtles and tortoises during their science unit. The students then wrote a realistic fiction story about a green sea turtle. They had to include facts they learned and make a clay flower pot bottom turtle to match. “They did a really great job on their writing. I am so proud of them. They have come so far this year,” Manning said.

One of my most favorite stories Paul told dated back to the late 60s or early 70s and it revolved around him killing a deer way out in the mountains. Naturally the deer ran down into a deep canyon and died. Knowing that it would take him forever to haul it out he devised an awesome plan. After preparing the deer he drove back to NAS Fallon and rustled up a SAR crew and they flew out and picked up the deer. Of course it was labeled as a training flight but what the hell in those days you could do that sort of thing. Rest in Peace my friend until we meet again!!Comment publication date: 4/11/24, 1:15 PMComment source: Obituary - LCDR Paul N PflimlinComment author: THughesComment text: So sad to hear.
