Arts for the Schools’ holiday cards, Homewood’s Honor Roll incentive program

Local artist Cathee van Rossem St. Clair, creates the annual holiday card to benefit Arts For the Schools. The “Bobcat Series” was created in celebration of Arts For the Schools 25th year as a non-profit organization dedicated to bringing artists into schools to share their time and skills with children in the Lake Tahoe/Truckee area of Northern California and Nevada. Cathee’s art reflects a personal quest for a deeper understanding of our earth and her diverse inhabitants. Cathee shares her talents with hundreds of schoolchildren each year, using egg painting as a tool for learning the importance of caring in our fragile world. Cards are now on sale at public outlets. A pack of 10 cards costs $12 plus tax. Also available on-line at http://www.artsfortheschools.org. Please call 582-8278 for information.

Homewood’s Honor Roll incentive program rewards Truckee and Tahoe City high school honor roll students with free lift tickets, valid any day of the week. To qualify for free lift tickets students must either achieve a 3.75 grade point average or a 3.5 grade point average with perfect attendance.

“The purpose of the program is to demonstrate by keeping sight of a goal, great rewards can be earned. Free skiing and snowboarding are great rewards for kids in our community,” Pierini said.

Each report card quarter, area high schools will provide the Homewood special tickets window with a list of eligible students. A valid student I.D. must be presented upon each ticket redemption.
