Six Rivers Charter High School’s Historical Calendar is a Service-Learning project that takes lessons beyond the classroom and into our community. The “Historical Calendar” showcases historical photos side by side with current images and a historical explanation.

Student directors Anthony Womack and Jonah Vavoda-Moore took on the challenge of researching historical sites, graphic design, and securing the support of local businesses to produce a calendar that will both educate and raise funds for school activities. Calendars will be distributed to local schools and are being sold by students for just $5.

Six Rivers appreciates the community that has stepped forward and are to selling our calendars. We are proud that our Historical Calendars are available at ACE McKinleyville, A & L Feed, Coast Central Branches, Pierson’s, Sunnybrae ACE, and Wildberries. Proceeds fund student activities such as the Senior Class Trip, and field-trips to college campuses.Six Rivers mission stresses the value of an interdependent community to its students. This project is proof that together with the community our students can accomplish and learn more. In that spirit, it is important to note that none of this would not have been possible without the support of our local community who stepped forward to sponsor the publication of the calendar. Six Rivers would like thank Coast Central, Conti’s Auto Repair, Fiesta Grill, the Minor Theatre, Multiplicity, Natural Resources Management, Ray’s Old Town Auto, REMAX, Shatzi’s Hidden Treasures, Stephany Joy of REMAX, “Stokes, Hamer, Kirk & Eads, LLP,” and Trinidad Retreats. In addition, Six Rivers would like to thank the HSU Library for the use of their photo archives and Kevin Bell of Western Web who provided technical support throughout.

Six Rivers is hopeful that the Historical Calendar will become a North Coast tradition. Six Rivers is grateful for the support of our wonderful community.Ron Perry is principal of Six Rivers Charter High School.
