ECFE CLASSES
Early Childhood Family Education (ECFE is a program for all Families with
children between ages of birth –kindergarten. The program is offered through
Minnesota public schools. ECFE is based on the idea that the family provides a
child’s first and most significant learning environment and parents are a child’s
first and most important teachers. ECFE works to strengthen families. ECFE’s
goal is to enhance the ability of all parents to provide the best possible environment for
their child’s learning and growth.
1
First, class begins with parent/child activity in the
early childhood room with a licensed Early
Childhood Teacher.
2
After a short circle time, parents separate from
children for a discussion led by a licensed parent
educator
While parents are in discussion, children
continue to learn through various play activities

Please Note: A br oad definition of “par ent” is used. A “par ent” can be a significant
adult in a child’s life. This includes, grandparents, aunt, uncle, foster parent, step-parent,

We hear that “space is the final frontier,” but it is also eternal. From the beginning of time, humans peered into the heavens to ponder the
meaning of life, their role in the universe and the significance of the planets.
The Planets, Op. 32 | Gustav Holst
Mars, The Bringer of War…...Venus, The Bringer of Peace…...Mercury, the Winged Messenger…. Jupiter, the Bringer of Jollity…..Saturn, the Bringer of Old Age…...Uranus, The Magician.. Neptune, The Mystic
A note about Pluto: Pluto was discovered in 1930, four years before Holst's death, and it was categorized by astronomers as a new planet.
Holst expressed no interest in writing a movement for it, probably due to the fact that he felt the suite was overshadowing his other
works. Several composers have written Pluto movements as additions to The Planets.

1954 was significant as a precursor to change. The New York Stock Exchange prices reached the highest level since the crash of 1929. The

Yoga will not only build your
flexibility, it is also good for
strengthening your muscles,
bone density, stress reduction,
and getting more oxygen in the
body through the breathing
techniques. In this introduction
class we will approach yoga
from the very beginning with
learning the proper way to
breathe and then approaching
the asana (poses) in a safe
manner. I will offer modifications where needed. My studio
supplies mats, blocks, blankets and straps if you need them.
This class will be an introduction into a Gentle form of yoga.
We will begin by learning the proper breathing techniques and
then progress into the asana (poses). We will not practice the
full sun salutations and will emphasize the use of blocks and
straps for modifications, thus making this class appropriate for
pretty much anyone.

BULLDOG SCHOOL NEWS
Dear Parents, Guardians and Community Members,
It is hard to believe but we have now completed our first quarter and are moving into our winter
months. It is the time of year that superintendents of schools start to sleep with one eye open because
they are never sure what the weather will do. When making a decision to either have school go on
time, a two hour late start or cancel school, I am up early looking at the weather forecast, current conditions and talking with transportation staff and other superintendents. We look at how much snow has
fallen, the wind speed, if there are icy conditions, wind chill, visibility, road conditions and other factors as we make weather related decisions. Our goal is always the safety of the students. The biggest
question is, “Can we transport our students safely to school?” There is not always a simple answer to
that question.
As a reminder, please make sure your student is dressed appropriately when she/he comes to school.
The weather can get brutally cold and warm hats, gloves and clothes need to be worn to insure the student’s safety. Even if
a student is driving to school or taking a school bus, remember that vehicles can and do break down so dressing warm is a
necessity.
I also want to take this time to thank David Johnson (10 years) and Deb Glenz (20 years) for their service to District 741 as
School Board members. Being a School Board member can be a job with few “pats on the back” and many times deal with
very difficult decisions. School Board members get little monetary compensation for what
they do. These two individuals have served the District well and will be missed. At the same
time we welcome Randy Kern, and Heidi Riley to the School Board.
On behalf of the District I want to thank the community for approving question #1 on the November 4, 2014 ballot. We greatly appreciate the communities support and commitment to our
students and staff.
Robert Huot - Superintendent of Schools
A Lot to Celebrate!
Great things are happening at Paynesville Area Elementary School! I announce this with gr eat
enthusiasm because as I enter my fourth year as the Elementary Principal I continue to be extremely
proud of the students and staff at our school.
To most people, especially families who are looking at sending their children to our school, data is
important, but they want to know what we are doing to prepare our students for middle school, high
school and beyond. We really feel that it is important to provide our students with the tools to be
productive, socially responsible adults. Listed below are a few of the great programs that help to
drive our success:
A strong Jr. Bulldog preschool program that is rated a 4-star Parent Aware Program.
This program offers a flexible schedule with curriculum that helps to prepare students for kindergarten
Before and after school daycare program for students in grades K-5.
Our PAWS program is a structured learning environment that is located right in the elementary school.
Smartboard technology in every classroom.
iPad and Chrome Book technology readily available to our students.
Math and Reading Corps Tutors for students. Paid for with grant funds.
Enrichment programs through our Power Half Hour, 5th Grade Math Masters and Young Author/Young Artist

BULLDOG SCHOOL NEWS
Dear Students, Parents and Community Members,
I would like to first congratulate all our fall athletic teams for a great season both in our PAMS
and PAHS. Our student-athletes and coaches set high standards for themselves as school leaders
and in their commitments to their season goals. I am very proud to be a Bulldog and to see our
teams excel. Our school pride is without a doubt strong. It is also a wonderful sight to see the
number of students and community members that attend our school events to cheer and support
their fellow Bulldogs.
We have great news for parents. You will now be able to make lunch payments online. If you
would like to take advantage of this program, please follow these steps.
1. Go to www.paynesvilleschools.com
2. Click on the online lunch payment center link.
3. After you put money into your child’s account and you are ready to check out, the system will ask you to login to
your Family Account. Your Family Account Login is your JMC login information.
If you have any questions regarding your JMC account and Password, please give Cassandra a call at
(320) 243-3761 ext. 3150.
During the month of November we will be giving the Explore Assessment to all 8th graders, on November
12th and the Plan Assessment to all 10th graders, on November 18th. These tests will help students determine if
they are on track for graduation, college readiness and also suggest career areas that they are currently showing an
interest in. We hope to have these scores back and available for advisors to share with parents at our February
conferences. These results will be used to help in scheduling classes for next year.
We have always had student led conferences mandatory for all MS students. Students have an opportunity
to share their successes and the areas they are struggling in. This is also a good time for students to share their goals
and map out a plan to achieve them. Research shows that if goals are shared it greatly enhances the effort put into
accomplishing them. Starting in February, conferences will now be mandatory for all HS students as well. We will
be focusing on students’ academic goals and providing information to help them achieve their goals. During this
time we will also be providing course scheduling advice and career/college readiness information. HS advisors will
be in contact with parents to set up these meetings.
Go Bulldogs, Lorie Floura

PAYNESVILLE AREA CENTER
Senior Spotlight
This month the featured senior is someone relatively new to town. Patsy Koski
became a home owner in Paynesville in July of 2013. Since that time she has been busy
getting involved in the community that she now calls home. Patsy is what I would call a
“people’s person”. Her personality truly shines when she is with others, and especially
when she is lending a helping hand.
Patsy was born in San Antonio, Texas almost 80 years ago. She was an only
child. She attended Abilene Christian University and majored in accounting and
business. (which she pointed out she has never used)
Her first husband was in the military and they spent five years in England, five years in Newfoundland, and
she spent several years in Texas while her husband was stationed in other countries. Eventually the journey
took them to the Duluth/Esko area which became home from 1973 to 2013.
Patsy and her second husband made their home on the farm that had been in his family since 1879. In
1997 they planted over 21,000 evergreen trees which were to be harvested as Christmas trees. Her husband,
Don, was diagnosed with cancer before the trees were ready to harvest so the land is stilled filled with many
trees. They made trails through the trees which now are used for horseback riding and snowshoeing. Patsy truly
loved this area and the friends she had made, but knew she needed to move from the country. The farm was on
the market for some time with no buyers until one day in 2013 a gentleman knocked on her door and said he
would like to buy it but she would need to move within a month. With the assistance of her children which by
now totaled 11 from her two marriages along with 8 foster children she helped raise along the way, 12
grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren she decided she could move that quickly. She soon discovered
finding a suitable house in the Esko area was not an easy task. After looking she finally found the home that fit
her needs, or more exactly had room for the beautiful entertainment center and bedroom suite her husband had
made for her, in Paynesville. This brought her closer to 4 of her
daughters who live in this community, but far from her many
friends and volunteer activities.
Patsy is a licensed massage therapist specializing in
craniology and reflexology. She currently volunteers to give
hand, feet and shoulder massages at Koronis Manor on
Saturdays. She also brings her therapy dog, a Pomeranian named
Ollie, to the Manor to visit with residents once a week. She can
also be found calling bingo at Queen Bee’s, helping with any
Lion’s service events, volunteering at the Area Center since she
joined the board in July or working on one of her many craft
projects.
Patsy is a lady of many talents. She ran a group home for
the mentally challenged for 18 years while living in the Esko
area. She led a grief support. She has taken medical missionary
Patsy in front of the entertainment center her
trips to Africa and Haiti through her former church, St.
husband made for her.
Matthew’s in Esko in 2007 and 2008. She does embroidery,
hooks amazingly beautiful rugs and makes lap robes for the
nursing home that anyone would love to receive.
Patsy spend parts of 2009-2012 traveling around the United States with friends. Those years they put
on 5000 to 7000 miles with no specific destination in mind. They would just stop when they saw something
interesting and stay with family and friends along the way. She still manages to visit friends and family from
the Esko area, but not as often as she would like.
Even with all the volunteering and hobbies, Patsy says she needs more to do. She has truly tried to
embrace her new community by giving of her time and talents. It is now time for Paynesville residents to welcome her by offering their friendship. For those of you who have moved to this community, you know how
important having a good friend to do things with can be. I often hear how
Teal Receipts
challenging it is to make friends in this community. People
Please continue to drop off your
have acquaintances but not friends. Let’s try to change that for
Teal’s receipts for the center
not only Patsy but all Paynesville residents.

PAYNESVILLE AREA CENTER
Greetings from the Paynesville Area Center Director,
Soon the Christmas trees will be up and decorated and we will all be longing to spend time with friends
and family and for many of us remembering those that will not be celebrating Christmas with us this
year.
Let the Area Center help fill the void this year. Join us for our Christmas Social on Monday, December
15th at 2 pm. Enjoy some Christmas cheer and also hopefully make a friend along the way. The Centrist
Choir will be sharing a few melodies as well.
The ACT on Alzheimer’s Committee will soon be making plans to help make Paynesville an Alzheimer’s
friendly community. This will be a “Community” project so if you have not had an opportunity to share
what you think will help make this happen, please share your ideas with me or one of the other committee
members.
AARP will be providing tax help again this spring. The dates they will be here have not been set yet, but
please know that the volunteers will be happy to help anyone on limited income or seniors citizens file
their taxes. Appointments will be accepted after February 1st.
Thanks to everyone who has visited the Center this past year. May the new year be filled
with many blessings!

PAYNESVILLE AREA CENTER
HEALTH HELPS # 99
ALZHEIMER CARE GIVING
November 2014
Dr. R.J. Lindeman, M.D.
The subject of this writing is a “hot topic” in Paynesville at the present time.
Due to the foresight of Linda Musel and many others as well as the Area
Center, Paynesville has accepted the challenge to start a program entitled
“ACT on Alzheimer’s.” It has been initiated and successfully promoted in
numerous communities in Minnesota. We, in the Paynesville Area, are in the
first few months of laying the groundwork for the program to be active in
our area. With the help of certain Alzheimer agencies in the county and state
and a generous financial grant we are moving forward----starting, what we
anticipate and hope, will be a long beneficial journey.
88,000 Minnesotans age 65+ live with Alzheimer’s disease and the number is growing. To add to
the magnitude of this painful figure there are 245,000 caregivers caring for family members with
Alzheimer’s and other dementias. An Alzheimer Caregiver’s responsibility is different and more
difficult because it requires attention and/or help, 24 hours a day and 7 days a week for as long as
the patient is able to stay in a home setting.
Alzheimer’s is unique. How it affects a patient varies with each individual patient. The area of the
body that causes the difficulties is the brain. The part of the brain that is involved dictates what
the abnormal functions of the body will be. Alzheimer’s is actually a syndrome and a syndrome is
a group of different but related actions and reactions of the body. Since there are few effective
treatments and no known cure, the disease is always a progressive group of problems that create
difficulty in providing care.
The goal of the ACT organization is to make the community aware of the urgency and size of the
problem. Also to become informed about the disease and then assisting the caregiver by offering
to relieve the caregiver for several hours at a time. Caregiver “burnout” is a common reason for
the need to place the patient in a facility that is able to give 24 hour care.
In areas of the state where ACT has been functioning it has been an overwhelming success. Our
program in Paynesville is being well organized and there will be numerous opportunities to attend
meetings and training sessions where people can prepare themselves to be of great help to their
friends and neighbors in caring for a loved one in the home. The amount of money saved by being
able to care for Alzheimer patients in their home setting is unimaginable. And I can think of no better way to show your love for your friend or neighbor than to volunteer some time to him or her,
the caregiver, at your discretion. Show your gratitude, for all of your blessings, to another person
by following the great commandment—LOVE THY NEIGHBOR AS THYSELF.

in the dining room, driving Meals On Wheels, washing dishes, whatever it may be “thank you”. We would not be able to continue these
programs without you. You make a difference in many lives each day and I hope you realize that too and it makes your day more complete
also.
We do celebrate birthdays on the first Friday of each month. So if it is your birthday in that month please come and join us in the celebration
and the companionship and visiting.
We also have pie day, where you will receive a piece of pie with your meal and that is every first Wednesday. Come out and see what the
pie is for the month and join us.
You are welcome to join us Monday thru Friday for a healthy nutritious meal and some good socializing. We have a great group of diners
here that would love to visit with you. We publish the menu in the papers & have them here on site. We aim for a noon eating time.
Meals on Wheels is available also if you are unable to make it to the Center for dinner. Hot meals will be delivered to your door Monday
thru Friday. Meals are partially funded under contract with the Central MN Council On Aging as part of the Older American’s Act and administered by Catholic Charities of St. Cloud. The suggested contribution for person’s 60+ is $4.00 to $7.50. No person 60+ is denied a
meal based on their ability to pay.
SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) is there for anyone who is 60+. This program can help you buy
healthy food and help you to eat well balanced meals and stay healthy. Please contact me with any questions.

The other day I was thinking about how lucky our community is to have the Center here. There is always something going
on whether it be a clinic, card playing, meetings, crafts or a private rental, this place is a busy place. We are lucky to have
the services available that are within the building and the great family of friends that gather here each day.
Thank you for supporting Senior Dining. Lisa Paulson, Senior Dining Coordinator; Catholic Charities Senior Dining 320.243.4575
