Potter Valley Elementary School has been notified by the California Department of Education that they have been advanced to the finals in the process of being certified as a “Distinguished Elementary School.” This year the State received 1997 elementary school applications from a total of 2,043 eligible schools. After a thorough evaluation, 368 ele- mentary schools were selected as “Statewide Nominees.” The State notified Potter Valley that, “based upon the exemplary quality of the application your school community submitted,” you have been selected to advance to the final validation process.

On April 18, State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Jack O’Connell will issue the results of the validation reviews and announce the 2006 Distinguished Elementary School recipients.

HOLY HARE The word Easter isn’t even in the text of the Bible, except for the King James version from 1611, where the translators substituted the word Easter for the word Passover in the book of Acts (This could have been seen as a proper way to translate it, because the pagan worship of Ishtar (Easter), actually domi- nated Passover in Roman life). For Christians the so called Easter season is to celebrate the resurrection of Christ from death, and this period of time was origi- nally known by the early Christians as the Passover sea- son, and the resurrection occurred on the Feast of First Fruits, which concludes the Passover week of feasts. The week of feasts included the Passover, Unleavened Bread, and First Fruits Lev, 23, Exodus 12. Pastor Mike Fenton 900 S. Dora; 462-8569.
