Student constructs new bench

Cosmo Varlomoff constructed a new bench that is now featured at the entryway of the front office. Showing school pride and the beautiful woodwork from our woodshop class.
A weekly highlight of the programs of Plumas Unified School District and supported by the County Office of Education.

Congratulations to the class of 2018!

Another year, come and gone. The end of every school year marks a momentous moment of academic and personal achievement that comes with sentimental reflection and gratitude for the things that have gone and the things that will come. As with every year, this moment marks a turn of the tassel and a progression for every class. This year’s 8th graders are now finally in high school, the current freshman said goodbye to being freshies, sophomores stepped that much closer to graduation, juniors are about to enter their last year of high school, and another class of seniors walked across the stage, accepted their diplomas, and is about to embark on a new journey.

The Science of Adventure

There is a science to everything - even adventure. Science is - “the intellectual and practical activity encompassing the systematic study of the structure and behavior of the physical and natural world through observation and experiment.” Adventure encompasses a plethora of activities, which up here in Plumas County can include boating, rock climbing, and skiing, among many others. So, what is the science of adventure? It is the study of the scientific principles that make up and interact with the outdoor activities that we love. Published 6-13-18

Principal Spotlight

Principle Erin Mongiello
 Interview with QHS Principal Erin Mongiello :
“When I was growing up I wanted to be a doctor or a Crime Scene Investigator, I guess being a principal is kind of like both sometimes.I came to the Lake Almanor area from Santa Cruz, California. My husband was offered a job up here and we were excited about the opportunity.
We had talked about making a move to the Sierra’s for a long time. We love the climate and all the great outdoor activities that go along with it. The timing was perfect with our youngest daughter starting college and the other one already out of the house. Once we were up here I was lucky enough to interview and get the principal job at CES, I then moved to into my role as QHS principal in the 2017/18 school year." 

“What I love most about being a principal is being a warrior for kids”
“My advice to kids is to set goals and stick to them. Also don’t take things too seriously. You have time to enjoy life, laugh, and play.”

Before Erin started her principal position in Plumas County she was an assistant principal in Watsonville, Ca. and a science teacher in the Santa Cruz Mountains. She loves anything that has to do with being outdoors, including, skiing, mountain biking, hiking, and swimming. Her passion is “making the world a better place, I want to make sure that the kids I work with have the best opportunities to be successful”. 
"Going through things you never thought you’d go through will only take you places you’d never thought you’d get to."
