The Winlock High School was faced with a bomb threat this week.
The Winlock High School had a few bomb threats last year and this year seems to have started off with the same problem. What many don't seem to realize is, there are consequences for these types of actions.

Winlock Elementary School is starting a new program called FLASH. The recent scores for math show our school is below the state standard. Winlock Miller Elementary is determined to get the scores up and they need the community's help to do so.
"The school is starting the FLASH Card Math volunteer program with an orientation for volunteers on Monday, October 7 at 2:00 p.m.," said Meg Matheson. "This is the day that volunteers will learn about expectations of the program, tips for working with students, and have an opportunity to meet the students and teachers with whom they will be working. The program will start with our fourth grade classrooms. Each volunteer will have 5 students that they will work with once a week. Multiplication flash cards will be the basis of the learning, with students memorizing facts that will help them with mathematical problem solving. Having the facts memorized will give students the skills to apply this knowledge, when needed, in algebra, geometry and calculus."

The event sounds like it will be a lively one with music performed by Tony Branco and Gubmint Cheese. There will also be a live, silent, and dessert auction, and of course a delicious "all you can eat" BBQ meal catered by the folks at Bonanza BBQ. Salads and fruit are by the Crowded Kitchen. As you can see, it is an event that the businesses in Toledo are supporting.
