AccreditationHerrett Center Receives Re-Accreditation 
The Herrett Center for Arts and Science has again achieved accreditation by the American Alliance of Museums (AAM), the highest national recognition for a museum. Accreditation signifies excellence to the museum community, to governments, funders, outside agencies, and to the museum-going public. The Herrett Center for Arts and Science has been accredited since 1986. All museums must undergo a reaccreditation review every ten years to maintain accredited status.

AAM Accreditation brings national recognition to a museum for its commitment to excellence, accountability, high professional standards, and continued institutional improvement. Developed and sustained by museum professionals for nearly 45 years, AAM's museum accreditation program is the field's primary vehicle for quality assurance, self-regulation, and public accountability. It strengthens the museum profession by promoting practices that enable leaders to make informed decisions, allocate resources wisely, and remain financially and ethically accountable in order to provide the best possible service to the public.

Just more than 1,000 of the nation's nearly 17,500 museums are currently accredited. The Herrett Center for Arts and Science is one of 20 accredited museums in Idaho.
To earn accreditation a museum first must conduct a year of self-study, then undergo a site visit by a team of peer reviewers. A panel of seven museum professionals considers the self-study and visiting committee report to determine whether a museum should receive accreditation.
The Herrett Center for Arts and Science is a non-profit museum with an emphasis on anthropology and natural history of the Americas, located on the main campus of the College of Southern Idaho. Its purpose is primarily educational, offering programs to elementary and secondary school students, CSI students, and the adult community of south-central Idaho. The Center is also home to the Faulkner Planetarium and the Centennial Observatory. For more information, please go to www.csi.edu/herrett<http://www.csi.edu/herrett> or call 208-732-6655.

Good news from the Sustainability Council

1.Save 40% on a cup of coffee or fountain drink from the Eagle's Nest when you bring your own cup! Sodexo (thank you Debbie Woodland) and the CSI Sustainability Council are each kicking in 20% to help motivate you to use a re-usable cup!
Take advantage of this great deal!

2.It is now easier than ever to recycle dry/dead/leaking pens, mechanical pencils, and markers. Just pop them into an inter-office envelope, write "Shields" in the Building column and "Recycling" in the Name column. Ultimately they will make their way to Jayme in the Bookstore, who sends them off to TerraCycle. For each writing instrument we recycle, the CSI Foundation gets a tiny kickback. It all adds up!!

If you have a Writing Instrument Collection Box in your area that is full, or if you would like a new one in your area so that students can contribute too, call Sarah at 6813.

KindergartenCalling all Parents with Kindergarten Aged Students, Enroll Now
 
 
The College of Southern Idaho Kindergarten Lab is now enrolling for the 2016/2017 school year.  The curriculum includes: Literacy, Science, Math, Engineering, Technology, Critical Thinking, Creative Arts, and Social and Physical Development. The curriculum meets the Common Core Standards for kindergarten.  There is a focus on inquiry and project-based learning. Students take on units of study based on their interests, and complete projects to show what they have learned.
 
There is a low student to teacher ratio, which means children receive daily individualized instruction.  We believe in fostering a love for learning and assist children in developing their natural curiosity and desire to learn.
 
The CSI Kindergarten Lab is a half day program. It works as a stand-alone program or as enrichment with other kindergarten programs.
 
For more information about this program please see the information sheets linked below:

TireTire Clean Up 2016 - It's More Than Just Time for Spring Cleaning
It's time to eliminate mosquito breeding locations! Anything that holds water longer than 7 days can produce mosquitoes, and mosquitoes don't just bite; they can spread disease. One tire can produce many thousands of mosquitoes. The Twin Falls County Pest abatement District is encouraging everyone to take advantage of Southern Idaho Solid Wastes Tire Amnesty Day on Saturday May 7th. You can take up to 4 tires to the Landfill or transfer station for FREE DISPOSAL! (Fee for some truck and tractor tires.) 

Let's clean up and protect public health at the same time!

Although tires are a haven for mosquitoes, they can be found in almost any place that holds water. Cans, birdbaths, rain gutters, toys, and water troughs are all capable of harboring mosquitoes. Therefore, it is important to drain anything capable of retaining water at least once a week to prevent larvae from hatching!

For more information Contact Southern Idaho Solid Waste (208) 734-3139 or the Twin Falls County Pest Abatement District. (208) 733-2338 or www.tfcpad.org.

Hours100Stage Door Series Presents "100 Hours"

The CSI Stage Door Series will present "100 Hours" on March 19. The performance will take place at 7:30 p.m. in the CSI Fine Arts Auditorium. Tickets are $10 for adults or $5 for students and will be available at the CSI Box Office, by calling 732-6288, at the door, or by going online to http://tickets.csi.edu.

"Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility."
-William Wordsworth.

Camille Barigar, Shane Brown and poet laureate Jim Irons, have taken a challenge: write unfettered by form, direction, or specific purpose for one hour every day for 100 days. These spontaneous creations will then be perused, discussed, and recollected in tranquility by the entire group, then crafted into poems, essays, short stories, lyrics--any form the work demands. Join us as these finished products are presented through recitation and performance, and gain insight into the creative process. The final performance will grow organically from the writing process, with the only guarantee being beauty, creativity, uniqueness, and surprise. 

The CSI Stage Door Series, intimate arts experiences where both performers and audience members are on the stage itself, are designed to be thought-provoking and a little out of the ordinary in different ways - whether it's because of the intimate setting, the material performed, the way they are presented, or the collaborations involved.

For more information, contact the CSI Fine Arts Center at 732-6288.

TrueCSI Sustainability Invites You to Watch "The True Cost"
March 16, 2016 at 12 and 7 p.m. in the CSI Fine Arts Recital Hall

The True Cost is a story about clothing. It's about the clothes we wear, the people who make them, and the impact the industry is having on our world. The price of clothing has been decreasing for decades, while the human and environmental costs have grown dramatically. The True Cost is a groundbreaking documentary film that pulls back the curtain on the untold story and asks us to consider, who really pays the price for our clothing? Filmed in countries all over the world, from the brightest runways to the darkest slums, and featuring interviews with the world's leading influencers including Stella McCartney, Livia Firth and Vandana Shiva, The True Cost is an unprecedented project that invites us on an eye opening journey around the world and into the lives of the many people and places behind our clothes.

PlanetariumArts on Tour Presents "Kahulanui"
Grammy-nominated Kahulanui will take the CSI Auditorium stage for the sixth performance of the Arts on Tour 2015-2016 Season on Friday, April 1 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $24 for adults and $10 for students high school and under and under and are available at tickets.csi.edu, at the CSI Box Office, or by calling 732-6288.

There is a new wave coming from Hawaii, a blend of traditional music and the Big Band Swing brought to the Aloha State by U.S. servicemen during World War II. Its leading exponent is Kahulanui, a nine piece band-four horns plus guitar, bass, ukulele, drums and steel-whose energy and dynamic arrangements have caused a sensation throughout the Islands. Kahulanui band leader, Lolena Naipo, Jr. found inspiration from his Grandfather, Robert Kahulanui, who was a member of the Royal Hawaiian Band during an era when horns and drums were a part of Hawaiian music. In the CD liner notes for this debut release Hawaii radio icon Sylark Rossetti elaborates:

"Throughout Hawaii in the 20s and 30s, one could find orchestras playing Hawaiian Swing and the house would be jumping. Lolena and Kahulanui borrow from these influences and perform classic Hawaiian songs in a syncopated style making Hawaiian Swing vibrant and alive in Hawaii today. Lolena 'Lena' Naipo, Jr. goes back to his roots in Kahulanui's first release, Hula Ku'i. It's Hawaiian Swing at its finest.... one of the most innovative releases to come out of the islands."

Their debut CD, Hula Ku'I, was nominated for a 2014 Grammy Award in the Regional Roots category and was also a finalist in 2013 for the Na Hoku Hanohano Awards (Hawaii's version of the Grammy Awards) in three categories: Album of the Year, Group of Year and Most Promising New Artist of the Year.

Kahulanui's execution of big-band stylings evokes an era of smoke-filled bars alive with lindyhopping dancers. Underlying this contemporary take on vintage music, moreover, is a cultural cohesiveness of enacting ku'i-of joining old and new.

The season will conclude on Friday, April 15 with The Fab Four: The Ultimate Beatles Tribute. For more information on this or other Arts on Tour programs, including season subscription and mini subscription information, call 732-6288.

Five Wishes is America's most popular living will because it's written in everyday language and helps people express their wishes in areas that matter most - the personal and spiritual in addition to the medical and legal. It also helps you describe what good care means to you, whether you are seriously ill or not. It allows your caregiver to know exactly what you want. 

B. Completing Five Wishes is a gift to your family, friends and your doctor because it keeps them out of the difficult position of having to guess what kind of treatment you want or don't want. 

C. Families also use Five Wishes to help start and guide family conversations about care in times of serious illness. Five Wishes is helpful for all adults - everyone over 18 years old - and anyone can start the conversation within a family. Sometimes it begins with grandparents and other times it is the younger family members who bring up the topic. Regardless of your age, you can bring this gift to your family.
