Life goes on despite partial government shutdown Even with a flurry of last-min- ute negotiations to avoid a U.S. government shutdown, no agree- ment was reached, and a partial shutdown began on Oct 1. Essen- tial services are scheduled to con- tinue, including Social Secu- rity and Medicare payments as well as many others. No one can know how long this partial shut- down will last or the impact, which will likely grow as it pro- ceeds. The pain is greatest for fur- loughed government workers and those whose activities are tied to national parks and other govern- ment services. But most people will continue their daily routines without any disruption. There have been 17 government shutdowns in the past, the most recent taking place in 1996. It's unfortunate that our leaders in Washington are unable to reach agreement on a budget to keep the federal government operating. But they did reach a last-minute agree- ment to continue paying the mili- tary. In the meantime, we'll need to be patient and keep the drama in perspective. Celebration Eligible Schools: Eden Valley-Watkins Elemen- tary earned the Celebration Eli- gible designation based on the 2013 Multiple Measurements Rat- ing (MMR) results released last Tuesday. Multiple Measurements Rating and Focus Rating results are used to designate and place schools into one of five different groups. This award recognizes the accomplishments and hard work of our schools in raising student proficiency and growth, closing the achievement gap, and increas- ing the likelihood of graduation. Congratulations to the EV-W staff, students, and community on your recent recognition!
