The Knights Ferry Junior High traveled to the Chabot Space and Science Center last week. The students were able to use a large telescope to see Venus and serve as astronauts and control center personnel in a space voyage to Mars.

The 5th-8th graders traveled to Paradise Elementary School for a track meet against surrounding small schools.

The Knight Ferry Rebekahs #361 hosted a Paint Day Fundraiser with a taco bar lunch. The group painted a Hawaiian scenery titled “Hawaii Palm” under the instruction of the talented Rebekah, Carol Earle. Carol has been teaching painting classes at the Hobby Shop in Oakdale since 1988. She had easels, canvases, paints, and brushes all set up for each of the guests and everyone had a very good time! Thank you for supporting the local Rebekahs!
