What a beautiful new campus we have! Come check it out!
We have a new main building, complete with an elevator, air conditioning, and all the newest technology. There is a new three-story building next to the pool. It houses many updated classrooms and the fancy new ASB office. The cafeteria has been totally remodeled and now serves some amazing lunches. The quad has been repaved and landscaped and is even bigger now that the old ASB wing is gone. The gyms and lockers are all beautified, the theater is amazing, and we have solar panels to help run the power around here. Thanks so much to all who helped to make this happen!
Cathleen Anne Flosi, passed away from pneumonia on Tuesday, August 12, 2014 in her home on Bainbridge Island, Wash. She was born May 22, 1947 and had lived in Ojai, Calif., Kailua Kona, Hawaii, plus Grants Pass, Ore. Cathleen is survived by her beloved cats, Pris and Joey. Please remember her by donating to PAWS of Bainbridge Island. Arrangements still pending at Cook Family Funeral Home. Informal evening memorial to be thrown by island friends on Rockaway Beach, September 24, 2014.
We understand Cathleen attended Wilcox High School in Santa Clara and that she graduated Class of 1965. Thought you would want to know. She had spent her life as a reputable therapeutic masseuse and herbalist to people and animals.
She treated pets skillfully; it is how Kim came to know her--she consulted and prescribed probiotics for our cat Simon.
And Cathleen far outlived the teen death sentence given to her by a Calif. doctor, relative to a rare heart disease. She had managed to keep it in check all of her life by using her naturopathic knowledge, until she contracted this pneumonia.
Friends of Cathleen,
Kim and Ira Seigel
