Remember that these suggestions are based on the teacher's years of training and successful practice with students in the classroom, that they are influenced by the teacher's ob- servation of your child during many hours every week. When you follow the teacher's sug- gestions, always remember to tell her or-tim how you think they have worked. Teachers need to know your responses first hand and will welcome your sugges- tions for working productively with your child and other stu- dents. Teachers also need other in- forrffation from you-about your child's health problems, such as impaired sight or hearing or allergies to food or medicine, about what your child likes or doesn't like to do, what hobbies or Library Aides high schools r varied "classes in at divided grade select chorus basic and stu- skills As they they work -I and basic to learn twotop High. to become a member of the group and spend their year learning to perfect their vocal and perfor- mance abilities.

They will start with a fall concert early in November, followed by a winter concert in December and a spring concert in May. These concerts are open to the public. sports she or he is most in- terested in, and what you talk about at home. Information such as this is important, because it gives the teacher valuable know- ledge about how to motivate your child to learn, how to protect her or his health and safety, and how to help her or him develop into a balanced adult person. Teachers appreciate this kind of aid. Next time you talk with your child about his or her classroom, remember the trust that rests on the teacher. Think how you might be able to share that trust for the present and for the years to come. After all, the responsibil- ity doesn't just involve the future of one professional person in a school, it means your future and that of your child, and, ulti- mately, the future of our country. It often is of great help to a teacher if he or she knows somethlng about the students' family life. Thus, it is important for teachers and parents to communicate.  Cheney School District 360 Community Re rt "Working Together for Kids" November, 1982 Students help at CHS library Every year, the library at Cheney High School is fortunate to have a group of talented students who work as library aides. Each trimester, junior and senior students (two each clas period) have the opportunity to be a library aide. This fall trimester, we have three seniors and seven juniors. Library aides are expected to be dependable, reliable, court- eous, pleasant, cooperative, neat and honest. They also should have a business-like attitude, good handwriting and a clean appearance. They are trusted with the responsibility to make the library a place where every student and teacher will find a pleasant, peaceful atmosphere in which to read and work. The library aides perform a variety of responsibilities, includ- ing: circulation and shelving of books and materials, becoming media ' equipment specialists in video, 16mm, etc., distributing ESD 101 films and helping other students locate materials in the library. The grade for the course is based on attitude  and per- formance. Library aides get a "P" for passing, and the com- ments given are appropriate to their assigned responsibilities. During each course registra- tion period, a reminder is put in the daily school bulletin to en- courage students to apply to be a library aide. The student is ex- pected to have a 2.0 grade point average. Then, the library aide and librarian sign a contract agreement which commits them to: 1) be on time; 2) perform all reasonable tasks assigned will- ingly and to the best of their ability; and 3) maintain discreet confidence about the problems of students and teachers which they discover in the course of their work with them. There are fringe benefits for students who are library aides. They have: 1) first access to read the new books; 2) special help in locating material for reports; 3) letters of recommendation for future reference; and 4) in- serwce on use of libraries. Former CHS library aides have benefited from letters of recom- mendation by obtaining: 1) part- Cont. on page 5 Cheney Junior High School Choral Instructor Harlan Henderson helps young singers develop their vocal skills.
