Six members of the PA National Guard landed an alpha model Blackhawk helicopter on the JR/SR High School soccer field in June. Students were able to tour the helicopter and ask questions of the crew.

Tulpehocken's spring sports programs enjoyed their share of success on the athletic fields. For the Trojans, the varsity baseball team finished the regular season as the Berks IV champs and qualified for the district III playoffs. The girls' soccer team enjoyed an equally impressive season by qualifying for both the county and district playoffs. In track and field, the Trojans had 16 athletes qualify for the district meet and two sophomores, Cameron Pierson and Devyn Emerich, qualify for the state meet. Fall sports for the high school 2006-07 season will officially begin on August 14, 2006. Fall sports physicals will be administered on August 2, 2006 from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. We hope to see the fields and courts full of hard working athletes next fall. - Corey Jones, Athletic Director

Third Grade Agriculture Adventure

April 27, 2006, was an exciting day for 120 third grade students from Bethel and Penn-Bernville Elementary Schools. The children attended the Third Grade Agriculture Adventure held at MorDale Farms in Myerstown, Pennsylvania. The event was organized by high school students from the Tulpehocken Jr./Sr. High School who are involved in agriculture education classes as well as the FFA. The Agriculture Adventure featured six different stations that groups of students visited throughout their day. The stations included recycling, animal care, water care, soil care, plant care, and food safety. Representatives from the Berks County Conservation District, Willow Creek Animal Hospital, and Berks County Master Gardeners volunteered their time to present information to the children. The children enjoyed petting the calves and viewing cows being milked. The afternoon was an enjoyable, fun-filled day for the third graders. The students took home soil samples and coloring books to help them remember their day of learning about agriculture. Mor-Dale Farms, who welcomed the children, is owned and operated by Ralph Moyer and family.

I never fully appreciated the value of an autobiography until I sat down to write one. That was when I realized that it is in fact one of the most difficult genres to write in. Nevertheless, I would assume that the best place to start would be the beginning. I was born at St. Joseph's Hospital in Reading. My family consists of my parents, Jeanette and Jefferie, and my sister, Gabrielle. Throughout elementary school, my primary focus was on my artistic abilities. I briefly did a little modeling/acting, which took me all over New York, New Jersey, and the vicinity. Upon beginning Junior High, I discovered I had a talent for writing, which I decided to pursue relentlessly. It is a hobby that I plan to indulge in throughout my life. I also enjoy sewing immensely, and that, too, I will never be able to give up. However, I recently discovered what it is I want to do with the rest of my life. This decision all but devastated my family, but I feel that it is my true calling. My dream is to become a State Trooper, and to eventually engage in an investigative branch of the force. Other than the danger of the job, my family's prominent concern seems to be the lack of artistic expression it provides me. But as I have said, writing, sewing, and painting are all hobbies which I benefit from, so I plan to always engage in them. It would probably be odd to say that my schoolwork serves as a hobby as well, but considering the time and effort I put into it, it would be just as unheard of not to. My grades are indisputably my number one priority; as another dream of mine is to graduate valedictorian. I then plan on attending Harvard if I am worthy, after which I desire a prompt relocation to a state with a considerably warmer climate (perhaps Florida) and an education from a state police academy there. In brief, that is pretty much the story of my life thus far. I have tried to the best of my ability to keep it to the point, but as a writer it is rather difficult to make anything concise. Hopefully I have succeeded to some degree. Thank you very much for your time.

HOBY

HOBY is an international youth leadership program founded by the actor Hugh O'Brian. The mission of HOBY is to recognize and develop student leadership potential, beginning with high school sophomores. HOBY seminars work to motivate and develop future leaders and to expand their individual talents and skills. The Tulpehocken High School faculty selects one student from th all interested 10 graders. This HOBY representative must have a charismatic personality and excel at oral and written communication, creative and critical thinking, problem-solving and decision making. He or she must demonstrate a sensitivity to others, courage to speak out and community service. Michael J. Kegerise II was selected to be the HOBY representative from the class of 2007. He attended the HOBY seminar at Eastern University in May `05 and thoroughly enjoyed the leadership activities, speakers and interactive experiences. Anne Hartman is the HOBY choice from the current sophomore class, and Brooke Stewart is the alternate. Anne attended the HOBY seminar early this June and is excited to be a part of the HOBY family. HOBY representatives from prior years are encouraged to stay active in the HOBY organization and may be invited back to be planners and counselors for the annual conferences. As "A*Team" volunteers, both Jayne Miller (HOBY '04) and Michael Kegerise (HOBY '05) helped to run the leadership seminar at Eastern University and to organize regional community projects. - Leslie S. Lockard Bethel Elementary Family Science Night! On Friday, April 7, 2006, the Bethel PTO sponsored their 3rd annual Family Science Night. Approximately 130 students and parents attended the event. "Turbo Tracy" from Science ExplorersTMof Lancaster taught students and parents about wafting, hypothesizing, and how molecules "dance" in different forms of matter. Participants created gases, endothermic reactions and polymers. Each student had the opportunity to do five hands-on experiments. They combined ingredients to create a foamy "volcanic" eruption and made raisins dance. They also mixed ingredients inside a vinyl glove that rapidly expanded the glove to its maximum capacity. Finally, students were able to squeeze two gooey mixtures until one formed into squishy silly putty and the other formed bouncy silly putty. Children and parents had a great time at the Family Science Night.

PANDEMIC INFLUENZA: GET THE FACTS Everyone is familiar with the seasonal flu. This is the common human respiratory illness caused by an influenza virus that is passed from person to person, or from contact with germs on infected surfaces. There are two types of influenza virus ­ type A and type B. Type A viruses tend to cause more severe disease, while with a type B virus; the illness tends to be milder. Many people have some level of immunity to the seasonal flu, because they have been exposed to previous years' seasonal flu ­ the strains of which differ only slightly from year to year. Most people don't realize that the seasonal flu usually causes some 30,000 human deaths a year, often from complications of pneumonia which are caused by the flu. An influenza pandemic is different from the seasonal flu. An influenza pandemic is a worldwide outbreak of disease that occurs when a new strain of type A influenza appears in the human population. When a new, or novel, strain of the type A virus occurs, it is different enough from previous circulating strains that few people have any immunity to it. A flu pandemic can spread very quickly before a vaccine becomes available, affects a larger number of people than seasonal flu, and will likely cause much more illness and death than a seasonal flu. Bird flu, or avian flu, is mainly an animal disease at this point. Bird flu is an infectious disease of birds which is caused by type A strains of the influenza virus. Generally speaking, it isn't found in humans. There have recently been a number of cases of avian flu in poultry and wild birds in Asia, Europe and Africa, and a few individuals have been diagnosed with bird flu as a result of close contact with sick poultry. Because the bird flu virus has infected a small number of people, it is being closely watched for changes that may make it able to spread easily from person to person. If that would happen, it might cause a flu pandemic. The Tulpehocken Area School District is committed to promoting health, wellness, and safety in the community. Look for further updates.

SUMMER ORIENTATION PROGRAM FOR NEW JUNIOR HIGH STUDENTS For many students the transition from the elementary school to the middle school, or junior high school, is difficult. Many students are overwhelmed by the various tasks and responsibilities and become quite anxious. Some of their concerns include: getting to class on time, finding their lockers and remembering the combination, finding the cafeteria and bathrooms, remembering which class to go to next, fear of getting lost in the building, keeping up with the class work for multiple subjects, and social issues, including peer pressure, cliques, and bullying. In an effort to help students make a positive transition to the Junior High School, we have developed a Summer Orientation Program. The Junior High Orientation is voluntary and parents are welcome to attend. During the orientation, students will spend time in the Junior High building, learn the location of their homeroom, preview their class schedule, meet teachers, locate their locker and practice the combination. Students will be given a sample agenda sheet and will write down assignments posted in the various Junior High classrooms to help prepare them for the th increased demands of 7 grade. Students will also have a chance to meet some of their new classmates and engage in fun activities as they learn about the Junior High. The Summer Orientation Program will be held on Wednesday, August 23, 2006 from 9:00 A.M. to 11:30 A.M. in the Junior High Building. Participants will assemble in the Junior-Senior High Auditorium at 9:00 and proceed to the junior high building. Refreshments and a brief orientation to the Junior/Senior High Cafeteria will be held from 11:00 to 11:30 A.M. We look forward to seeing the new 7th grade students and any new-to-the-district 8th grade students on Wednesday, August 23, 2006! If you have any questions please contact Gregory G. Protzman, Principal, at 610-488-6286 ext. 107or Susan Burns, Junior High Counselor at 610-488-6286 ext. 133.
