Summer school once hung over students like the sword of Damocles. The thought of spending summer days in the classroom while your friends were lounging around the pool was more than any right-mind- ed student could fathom. However, today, summer school is far more appealing with approximately 30% of Missouri's public school stu- dents (2002 summer school ses- sion) enrolled in these classes, according to the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. The Crawford Co. R-II school district has contracted with Newton Learning to offer its summer school. Newton is a private company that has become a Missouri leader in providing summer school pro- grams. The firm has summer school contracts with 68 of the state's school districts and is teaching students everything from math and history to the- ater arts and rocket building. Its curriculum is so popular that 55% of the students (grades one through eight) in Newton Learning school dis- tricts have registered for sum- mer school. "The most important charac- teristic that sets Newton Learning's summer curricula apart from other programs is our focus on student interest," said Clay Shwab, the compa- ny's chief operating officer. "With its unique course offerings, interwoven with enrichment activities and great prizes, we have changed stu- dents' negative feelings about summer school into enthusi- asm and wonderful atten- R Estimates on all Repairs and Upgrades $9.95 buys any of the following used test- ed good items: ATX Power Supply, Hard Disk Drive, CD-ROM, & SD-RAM.

Every day, teach- ers award points for each stu- dent's attitude, attendance and achievements. The points are then traded for prizes at the end of the class. The curriculum is developed for each school district and includes basic courses consist- ing of reading, language arts, mathematics, science and social studies in grades K through 8. A range of enrichment pro- grams entice students to opt for the classroom over a morning with their home video games. Courses include: rocketry, fine arts, dance, puppetry, theater arts, broadcast journalism, woodworking and lifetime sports. "The secondary school cur- riculum is developed to meet the most ridged requirements. Southeast confers 749 degrees Degrees were conferred on 749 students during May commencement exercises held May 17 on the campus of Southeast Missouri State Uni- versity. Dr. Charles Roadman II, president and chief executive officer of American Health Care Association, presented the address during exercises held in the Show Me Center. Among the graduates was Tim Metcalf, Cuba, Mo., Bachelor of Science in Educa- tion (High School)-Major, Physical Education K-12. BRCH It includes: algebra, geometry or advanced mathematics, English, communication arts, humanities, U.S. and/or world history," Shwab said. The effectiveness of the Newton program is measured by a pre-class evaluation test that is administered on the sec- ond day of the class, then is conducted again on the second to last day of the class. "During the 2002 summer session, the 38,000 Missouri students participating in our programs realized a mean improvement level between the pre-curriculum and postcur- riculum examinations of 46.75% in communication arts (reading, writing and language arts) and a 63.1% gain in math- ematics," according to Shwab.

When he reached the high bluff, Black Bird saw many from his village. Everyone was excited about what would soon pass before their eyes. Black Bird sat where he could see far up the river Below him was a part of the river that old men called "Dead Man's Canyon." No one ever survived on the fiver this time of year. But it was said that some crazy white men were taking boats through the canyon today. Black Bird didn't think they would survive. Maybe he could help rescue any who did live. "Herg they come," someone shouted. Black Bird jumped to feet. Five boats were coming into view. All the boats turned right into the biggest rapids on the water The Indians on the bluff yelled and waved their arms. But the men in the boats did not look up at them. They were busy paddfing and steering their boats. Watcl the five boats tossing about in the foamy water was the most exciting thing Black Bird had ever seen. But in only a few moments, the excitement was over. All boats were safe. Black Bird could hear the white men cheering as they floated away. Racing back to d his pony, Black Bird was surprised to see four white men on horseback waig for him. They d they were with the men in the boats. They said they needed horses for their hunters. One of them asked if Black Bird would sell  pony. The boy said he would not sell his pony. But he said his father had many horses for sale. A.

Black Bird went with his father and the white men to catch horses that had been sold. His father told the white men tribe's spotted horses were the finest in the country. He also that Black Bird had the most beautiful horse of them all. After the white men put ropes on the horses they had bought, the man called Captain Lewis gave Black Bird's Then he thanked Black Bird for helping him find such ' He asked the boy if he would like a gift.
