Two years ago, a then five-year-old Autumn Tognotti, who had just started kindergarten at Chester Elementary, asked her mom Nicholle Crowther (Tognotti), a Chester Elementary 4th-grade Teacher, “When is the school’s birthday?”. When Nicholle realized she could not answer her daughter, this simple but insightful question sparked a curiosity in Nicholle to investigate the history of Chester Elementary School. In the process, she discovered that in the 2017/18 school year Chester Elementary would turn 70 years old. Published on 5-31-18
The Plumas Unified School District 6th-grade theme is the Year of the Watershed. Both literally and figuratively, 6th-grade is a rite of passage year for PUSD students as they earn their stripes as true mountain kids and explore the many tributaries that create the Feather River Watershed. Throughout the year, 6th-graders are immersed in the environments that they are learning about to fully explore the scientific principles they are studying, connect to their home, and foster a deep appreciation for and stewardship of the abundant natural resources surrounding them.
