“History Day” is a program that encourages students to explore local, state, national and world history. The 2013 Sacramento County History Day Competition was effectuated March 9th at the Inderkum High School in Natomas. This event was comprised by different categories of research projects: 2- Dimensional Displays, Documentaries, Exhibits, Research Papers, Performances and Websites.
Arlene Hein Elementary 6th grade students Bella Felix, Daniel S. Marquez, Adrianna Ortega, Jordyn Rosette, and Laurin Taylor- Wilkerson in conjunction with Mr. Lappin presented a 10 minute Junior Documentary titled ” TERROR ATTACK 911: The Day We Fell Down.” The process of preparing this Documentary took a great deal of planning, several days of investigation, late work hours, dedication, coordination and patience; and the product was great, an excellent DVD documentary that impressed the judges and the audience.
AHES is proud of this great team of young researchers. It was a great, unforgettable, rewarding experience and an impressive competition!!
Thank you, Mr. Lappin for your excellent coaching and support so this project could become a reality, and also big thanks to the individuals that dedicated their time to participate in the interviews.
Congratulations! With your efforts, we turned in $630 worth of boxtops! That is 1/3 of our annual goal in one month! Way to Go!
Mrs. Masons A Track 6th grade class was the winner by a landslide turning in 1,358 total labels! Way to go Mrs. Masons class!!!!

It’s the time of the year when gifts are exchanged by many, lots of baking is filling our houses with wonderful smells, and the weather is turning crisp and foggy. It’s a time of looking back on the year, thinking about how to make next year even better, and how to show appreciation to those around us.
The question arises from many parents, “How can we show our appreciation for the time, effort and dedication our teachers give to our children?” One of the most valuable things that the teachers give our children is time. Something that is irreplaceable and precious. Wouldn’t it be nice to be able to give that back to them? ”But how?” you ask.
Answer: Take the place of your child’s teacher when they have crossing guard duty. It takes just 15 minutes, on whichever day fits your schedule. Many of us parents are at the school for those 15 minutes anyway. Couldn’t you step in for a teacher?
The gift that gives back: Try it out! We promise that you will be happier all day long, because you made a difference for someone who spends his/her life serving you and your kids. As you take that stop sign, the smile and appreciation you get from your child’s teacher is genuine. Catherine Pomeroy is often at the main crosswalk, replacing 1 or 2 teachers. She says, “One of my favorite teachers said to me, as I took the stop sign out of her hand, “You have no idea how much this means to me. I need this 15 minutes as much as I need air to breathe.”"
So, Make a Difference Today! Thank your favorite Teacher.

Children need at least 1 hour of exercise or physical play a day in order to maintain proper health. With Winter approaching, are you wondering how to keep your kids active while battling the chilly weather? Just because frost is upon us, doesn’t mean our kids can’t get in quality play time each day.
Here are 7 things your child can do inside when outdoor play is not possible:
1. Shake It! Dancing is a great way to exert energy, burn calories, and it is loads of fun for the kids. Have them make up different dance routines based on popular themes or artist.
2. Jump Rope. Kids love this! Clear some space in a room and get to hopping. If your child hasn’t learned any of the traditional “playground jump rope rhymes”, check out sites such as http://www.gameskidsplay.net/jump_rope_ryhmes/ and learn them together.
3. “Keep the Balloon Up”. Each kid gets a balloon and hits it in the air. They can only touch their own balloon. Whoever can keep their balloon going the longest, without it touching the ground, wins. To make it last longer, have the winner win 3 out of 7, 5 out of 9, etc.
4. Hula Hooping is a great form of exercise (and the kids don’t even know it!). Have them hula to songs, challenge each other to a hula hoop’off, or, if space allows, push the hula hoop and have races across the room.
5. Indoor kid gyms are also great ways to get the kids moving on poor weather days. Most facilities offer play areas and structures for all ages of children, so the whole family can enjoy. Be sure to call ahead to check available open play times.
6. Traditional Games like Ring around the Rosie, Duck Duck Goose, and the Hokey Pokey can all be done indoors if there’s more than one child playing.
7. Foam Ball Games – ‘nerf’‐like foam balls make perfect indoor sports equipment. Toss around a foam ball, play catch bouncing it of a wall or play basketball with a mini hoop.
*Try to limit TV time to less than 2 hours per day. And be sure to introduce activity breaks during commercial breaks any time your child watches TV so they don’t remain completely sedentary*
