They further proposed "social clubs among different schools" could meet to work out potential problems among students before they arose at the new consolidated schools. "Both the Alderson and Rainelle teams spoke to the need for new schools to be small enough to allow students to feel at home and main- tain a sense of community," Mr Dulee said. The Lewisburg team was made up of: Fen Ikner, Robin Westrik and Tim Reese. Rachel Loos, Lindsay Gabbert, John Fulcher, Rachel Bie- semeyer and Sheila Smith com- prised the Alderson team. Rainelle was represented by Jenna Dolan, Maclyn McCall, Ryan Painter and Amy Rikder. The Lewisburg team's proposal will be submitted to a state competi- tion to be held in Summersville this March. This competition is one of four countywide academic bowls con- ducted for students in both regular and gifted education by Dan Greene, Danelle Gibson and Rich- ard Dulee, county gifted education instructors. 9 teaching and coaching. At the meeting, Academic admin- istrator, M. Earl McGuffey pointed out that the average cost of educat- ing a child through public education in the U. S. was $4,509 during the 1988-89 school year. He further showed members that an education at STCA could be given for less than 1/3 of a public school educa- tion. He pointed out that it costs STCA only $1,200 per year to edu- cate a child. STCA Principal Don Brewster, said parents enrolling their children at STCA could expect a high academic performance at all levels (grades K-12). He cited the text books and dedication of con- cerned qualified Christian teachers as the reasons for these superior academic results. The funding for educational pro- grams at STCA comes solely through private contributions and tuition paid by parents whose chil- dren attend STCA.

Ms Altizer, a December '89 graduate of the Visual Communica- tions program, is the daughter of The Mountain Messenger, Tuesday, February 13, 1990 5B Hand in Hand Priscilla Maren Resolving Problem With Grandma One of my readers writes that when she and her husband go out, Grandma repeatedly does things with the children that she has been asked not to do --- encourages them to watch TV indiscriminately, feeds them candies, and tells them fright- ening stories from the newspapers. If she were a hired babysitter, they could fire her, but she is the grand- mother, she lives next door, and she loves to come over and take care of her grandchildren. My advice is to give up trying to get Grandma to change her ways. Hire a sitter who will obey your in- structions --- a young person would be good in that you could explain to Grandma that he or she is getting work experience, is going to be a teacher, or the like. So that Grandma will have plenty of opportunities to enjoy her grand- children, invite her to come over at times when you are home, and go to her house along with the children. If you or she has some work you can help each other with, and in which the children can participate if they feel like it -- such as shelling peas, polishing silverware, making tortillas, or unravelling old sweaters to re-use the wool -- so much the better. Working together at something, no matter how simple, will draw you closer together and will give Grandma the feeling of being useful and wanted -- which may be what she was hoping for with her candy and TV and stories. Something Fun To Do Together Curl your fingers to make a fist. Open you fist just enough to make a hole large enough for a finger to be poked in. Invite your child to try to put a finger in the ho!e and pull it out so fast that the finger do, esn't get caught. Let the child succeed at this several times, then catch the finger in the hole, then almost catch it, etc. Changes places and let your child make the hole for you to put your finger in and out (and let your finger get caught a few times). Something To Make You need peg type clothespins, pipe cleaners or long twist-ties, glue, a small amount of lightweight card- board, and various odds and ends such as bottle or toothpaste caps, scraps of cloth or yarn, small shells, etc. Wrap a pipe cleaner once around the "neck" of the clothespin, twist it once in back, and bring the ends forward to make the arms of a doll (you can make little loops for hands, so the doll can hold things). Let your child draw eyes, nose and mouth with a ball point or felt tip pen. Cut out a piece of cardboard about 1-1/ 2" round and let your child put a generous dab of glue in the center of it. Stand the clothespin doll on the glue and set it to dry. Make a whole family of dolls. Saw off part of the "legs" to make different size dolls (you can use a sawtoothed bread knife if you don't have a saw). Make hats, hair, and clothes for the dolls out of odds and ends. If you have any problems or questions or would like to share with other parents things you have done with your children, write Priscilla Maren and she will try to respond in this column. 1970 Greenbrier East, Class of 1970 is organizing a 20 year reunion.
