The Cuyama Valley Recreation District is teaming up with the Cuyama Valley Resource Center to bring a Back to School Kids Day & Health Fair, 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 4., at Richardson Park, just off Hwy. 166.

As part of the event, the Cuyama Transit will be onsite to be stuffed full of classroom supplies for teachers in the Cuyama Joint Unified School District. The Cuyama Valley community is seeking support from the public if you’re traveling on the 166.

Among suggested classroom supplies are: construction paper and poster board (all sizes and colors); Elmer’s White Glue and Glue Sticks; lined paper; spiral notebooks; journals and index cards; art supplies (watercolor paints, colored pencils, markers, crayons, paint brushes, art smocks); dry erase markers and erasers; pencils and erasers.

As part of the event, there will be service groups and organizations onsite to educate, entertain and inform about their services. Some of the organizations and activities are:

Community Health Centers of the Central Coast, health screening; Las Promotoras, lunch; Cuyama Valley 4H, membership drive; Cuyama Valley Parents Club, beverages; Cuyama Elementary School Garden; Quail Springs Permaculture, watershed activity and tiny adobe building.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
