Saturday, June 13, 2015 — Each year, Lassen High School  geometry students are tasked with taking an object and enlarging it by a scale factor of more than two.

    Math teachers Jason Meadows, Christie Cornelison and Jessica Larson and some of their students presented WOW projects during a special June 1 meeting of the Lassen Union High School District Board of Trustees.
    Some of this year’s WOW projects included a book that opened and included the details of the first few pages and a matchbook enlarged by a scale factor of 10.

Local students honor school’s lead janitor

Sunday, June 14, 2015 — Life is full of people who make a positive difference in a quiet way and may never be recognized for the influence they have on others.
    After four months of planning the surprise, Lassen High School’s students body changed that for one person on campus.
    More than 100 students gathered in the school library and when lead custodian Dan Brussatoi walked in they gave him a round of applause and presented him with gifts.
    He received a $50 gift card, a new tackle box and a card in the shape of a fishing vest.  
    Students in the woodshop class made a plaque with a fish and fishing pole and Brussatoi was also given a fish bowl filled with paper fish that were given to every staff member to sign and thank him for what
he does.
