I must admit that I am still on an emotional high since our Snoqualmie Valley Historical Society’s 1940 community sing-along. What a thrill to have well over one hundred Valley neighbors gathered together for the sake of joined voices to celebrate and commemorate the pivotal time and heritage of 1940! We rarely gather together nowadays, except to confront issues or to take advantage of bargain sales. Neither was the case as joined voices were raised to recreate and celebrate our rich heritage of music in one of the more pivotal years in American history.

At the Feb. 28, 2013, meeting of District 410’s board, I inquired as to the status of teaching cursive in our schools. Although disappointed to learn of our lack of emphasis after teaching it in the third grade, I was somewhat encouraged by the board’s interest in the issue. Since then, I have talked to many persons, adults and students, about the use of cursive. Many of the adults had heard about the national trend of de-emphasizing cursive.

Before junior Hailey Johnson races down the runway for a high-flying vault, she walks herself through every movement. “I think about every part of it, everything that I have to focus on,” she said. “There isn’t time to think about it when you’re going. You just have to do it.” It’s only when she’s back on solid ground that she knows whether it was good. A perfect landing “is the best feeling” and an awesome moment, Mount Si’s vault specialist said.
