Photo by Jerri Bayless) Children's School is the Ultimate Learning Opportunity The ultimate in learning opportunities is available right here at Weber State in the Children's School. The school had its start in the late 40's as a one room coop with parents assisting a teacher once a week. It was located on lower campus and was moved up to the present campus in the education building. The school now consists of three children's rooms with observation booths running parallel to them, a play yard, offices, and a parents library. There are three separate schoo!s;two day care centers an a preschool class. The day care centers are for faculty, staff and students' children. The preschool was developed into a parent education center. For a child to be eligible to attend the on Skyline Drive preschool, the child's parents must enroll in "Learning With Your Child"(CHFM 253). The parents are required to attend two interaction labs per quarter either at home or in the school setting. Dr. Jean Kunz, department chairperson for the School of Child and Family Studies remarked, "The Children's School offers unique learning opportunities for parents, children, and students alike. Our child development classes use the observation booths to watch and analyze different types of behavior and follow the development of at least one child throughout the quarter. The child is gaining experiences during the whole time and the student gains insight on different child rearing practices. The school offers quality education for children who must be put in day care centers." The school also is the center for the Head Start training programs for the Tri-State Tribes from Montana, Wyoming and Idaho. They are two week internships for instructors to develop their curriculum and to enhance their teaching methods. In closing Dr. Kunz add-ed"The schools were originally established for observation and participation for students. It has proved to be an excellent demonstration center for pre-school education." For information contact the Child and Family Studies Office. Ticketed Automobiles parked along Skyline Drive without campus parking permits are being ticketed by campus police for violation of parking regulations. Parking on campus property which is not desiginated as A, B, C, or free parking, such as the property on both sides of Skyline Drive require a B sticker for parking utilization, according to chief of campus police Lee Cassity. A question of exactly who has jurisdiction over the shoulder areas along the street was raised by campus maintenance worker, Dallas Simpson, who works out of a building in the area. Simpson maintained that Ogden City controls a 100 foot easement through college property and therefore the city police have the say in the ticketing of vehicles. The Director of Planning and Institutional Research, Kim Wheatley said,"The city has a 100 foot wide easement through the property but it is for construction only." Tutors Weber State College students or community members who would like to serve as student tutors and peer advisors are invited to call WSC Academic Improvement Office as soon as possible. Especially welcome are those who have had teaching or tutoring experience.Approxmately 150 students are served each quarter in the basic skills area. Thirty to forty tutors are hired to work with students. WSC students who receive benefits under the program range in age from 18 to 72, and represent many countries and cultural backgrounds. By Bryan Shifter Students interested in free parking should utilize the areas on campus set aside for this purpose. SPAR KINGS The cost of parking regulation and maintenance will exceed the revenue generated from parking permit sales, fines, and meter . collection, according to estimated figures released by the Office of Planning and Institutional Research. The figures for cost vs. revenues are as follows: Estimated Revenues-$85,261 (decal sales, $30,500 (parking fines), $6,000 (meter collections) Estimated Costs- $100,000 (enforcement of parking regulation), $22,000 (signs, striping, decals, computer time, programming), $6,000 (lot maintenance), $10-20,000 (snow removal) The office wishes to stress that the above figures are a rough estimate and only time will establish their viability. Needed Dr. Don N. Jensen, director of academic improvement, said the office would like to hire students assistants at once. His office is situated in the basement of the Stewart Library, Room 33, telephone 626-6797 or 626-6872. Refused Order.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
