On Sept. 20th, the Grangeville Elks represented by
Esteemed Loyal Knight Jay Hinterlong came to the Summit Academy and Prairie
Elementary School to present this years third graders with their new dictionaries.
This practice was started last year, and will continue every year from
now on. Thanks to the teachers and staff for their co-operation in allowing
the Elks to accomplish this endeavor. The top photo shows Hinterlong with
Prairie Elementary third graders and in the bottom photo he is shown with
Summit Academy third graders.

With the awarding of a $10,000 grant from the Idaho
Professional Technical Grant Committee, trading in the old laser, and $3,000
from the TSA fund, the Prairie High Industrial Technology Program was able
to upgrade their old laser. Money for TSA comes from the sale of products
that TSA club members and Prairie High students make, from building storage
buildings, bat boxes, donations from individuals that we have built items
for, and from private donations. The laser engraver is another machine
used to prepare students for the real world. Students engrave wood products
they have made, as well as glass, vinyl, leather, corian, marble, and tile.
We do not have yet, but will be working towards purchasing a rotary engraver
allowing the students to engrave on christmas ornaments, and cylindrical
objects, like champagne glasses. Without the help of several people this
could not have been made possible. Their kindness is greatly appreciated.
Shown is the new laser and on the shelves above are samples of the work
being done with it.
