“The Science of Rafting” Connecting Learning and Adventure

The Plumas Unified School District 6th-grade theme is the Year of the Watershed. Both literally and figuratively, 6th-grade is a rite of passage year for PUSD students as they earn their stripes as true mountain kids and explore the many tributaries that create the Feather River Watershed. Throughout the year, 6th-graders are immersed in the environments that they are learning about to fully explore the scientific principles they are studying, connect to their home, and foster a deep appreciation for and stewardship of the abundant natural resources surrounding them.

Volunteerism in Plumas County Creates Thriving Communities and Schools

The Kindergarten Roundup is an annual collaborative effort of Plumas Unified School District and many county organizations to help incoming kindergartners and transitional kindergartners register for school, obtain their mandated physical and dental exams and have fun doing it! The roundups are orchestrated by the PUSD school nurses who work with local agencies to make the event a success. Published 4-25-18

School Nurses Help Create Healthy and Thriving Learning Environments for ALL students

There is a common misconception that the role of school nurses only includes the occasional first aid duties and caring for kids with a cold or the flu. Yet, the truth is that the responsibilities of school nurses are critical to monitoring and maintaining healthy and thriving schools. School Nurses are foundational to making public education available to every student, regardless of any and all pre-existing health conditions and circumstances. Published 3-29-18

Teacher Feature Bianca Ruiz-Hernandez

The path to career discovery and passion is different for every person. Some people are born knowing what they want to do, some people think they know what they want, only to find their calling is elsewhere; and still, others find that, in one way or another, their careers find them. Bianca Ruiz-Hernandez, a Quincy local, never planned on being where she is now, but as life would have it, she found her calling working with students with special needs and is currently working as the Special Day Education teacher at Quincy Elementary. The Special Day Class is for K-6th students with moderate to severe disabilities. Published 3-14-18

Sierra Nevada FireWorks Curriculum Collaboration creates Regional Fire Science Curriculum for Plumas County Kids

Fire is a huge part of the culture, landscape, and ecology of the Sierra Nevada. For years, Fire Ecology has been taught in many schools in Plumas Unified, both as a part of general science classes and specifically in Fire Science Courses. Since the adoption of Outdoor Core and Next Generation Science Standards, this fire focus has only increased. One very beneficial educational resource for teaching fire science was created by the Missoula Fire Science Laboratory of the US Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station. While many fire ecology principles are relevant in any area, there are forest-specific fire behavior and regional considerations. Published on 1-11-18
