Extractions: Scripps Howard News Service How did this happen? One minute we're all enjoying summer, and the next minute it's back to school. You know what that means: It's time once again to start packing the dreaded lunch. But, said Karen Erickson, a Denver home economist and mother of four, with a little imagination, packing lunch can be more pleasure than chronic pain. "To make it interesting for me, I try to come up with something fun and balanced," she said. The payoff can be huge. "It's fun when Peter comes home from school and says, 'Wow,' or 'Mom, I really liked the tuna without the bread.' That makes me feel like it's worthwhile."

Extractions: Juvenile Protection/Safety Committee Report The Sunshine/Outreach Committee would like to thank everyone who participated in our annual toy drive, once again making it a huge success. The following is a note from an Unqua parent who made sure the toys were distributed to the children, and without whom it wouldn't have happened: Dear Josephine and Karen, Just to let you know the toys collected from Unqua were successfully delivered to the St. Francis DeSales Outreach Center in Patchogue. As you are aware, this was our 14th annual toy drive and the 2nd year that Unqua contributed toys to help make it successful. This year we delivered a total of 9 family-sized trucks to the Center, making it the biggest yet! One SUV was filled with toys just from Unqua. The drive has gotten so large, Father Kevin was able to fill the requests of the Outreach Center and provide the Marines with the rest of the toys. Thank you for your hard work collecting and sorting the toys and for delivering those "last minute" toys to my home. Thank you to all the generous families who helped to get toys to the needy during the holidays.

Several examples of PTA sponsored programs and purchases include Great Books, Science Day, new computers and art supplies, as well as money provided to the library and to teachers for classroom supplies or study trips. Funds may also be used for special assemblies and activity days to enrich the regular curriculum. Fund raising varies from year to year, but some of our ongoing programs are as follows. Brittan Acres sponsors a booth at Hometown Days each year. The Holiday Store is a fun and reasonably priced way for your child to "shop" for holiday gifts. Two highly profitable fund raisers are our eSCRIP and Schoolpop programs. These are described in more detail in the following pages.

Tech Team Technology in the Classroom Article T E C H N O L O G Y A R T I C L E "Most teachers fear the words 'We did that before!,'" Tech Team member Dave Figi tells Education World. "Those four words throw up a barrier to the excitement and adventure we hope our students share as we travel the road to learning in our subject areas. The challenge for teachers is to present something new; something challenging and motivating; something within the framework of the students' own experience; and, perhaps most important, something students can succeed at. Early success is the first step on the road that we hope will end in a positive learning experience for our students." Whether you're a technology teacher or a classroom teacher interested in integrating technology, you can challenge and motivate your own students as they succeed with these back-to-school activities from the Education World Tech Team.

Voice of Experience School Issues Article V O I C E O F E X P E R I E N C E Each week, in the Education World Voice of Experience column, an educator shares an Aha! moment in the classroom. This week, Brenda Dyck recounts how her school's administrators used the Survivor TV show as a theme to strengthen teams, build camaraderie, present challenges and teach a few lessons about how to create a quality classroom environment for students! Included: Survivor activity ideas and teacher reactions! I've spent most of today covered in face paint, glitter glue, feathers, and beads. This apparent masquerade was part of my school's first-day staff training a staged simulation based on the successful TV series Survivor. It didn't take long, however, to realize that the purpose of this day was about much more than fun. A day spent in an environment in which top-down leadership, ranking, and shaming were the rule taught all of us some valuable lessons about how to create a quality classroom environment. Within minutes of arriving at school, my colleagues and I were ushered into a darkened room filled with eerie smoke (from dry ice), foliage, tiki torches, climbing ropes, and cargo containers.

Nutritious and Fun Roll ups are fun and easy to eat. Put your child's favourite filling on a tortilla, fold the top and bottom ends towards the center and roll. Bite sized fruit is easy to eat. Strawberries, grapes, melon balls, and fresh pineapple chunks are all great choices. Vary the types of breads you use in sandwiches... rolls, bagels, English muffins, tortilla's, rye, whole wheat, pumpernickel... variety keeps 'brown bag boredom' at bay.

And those adorable overalls? They'll do nothing for your child's self-esteem and sense of accomplishment if she can't get out of them to use the bathroom. 3. Take to the road
