School News & Announcements

Dear Families,

Can you believe the year of 2014 is almost over? As you know the months of November and December go by so quickiyl As we wrap up 2014, our staff would like to thank you for such a great turnout at parent/teacher conferences. Eighty-five percent of our parents attended conferences! In addition, many of you visited the Book Fair, attended our PTA meetings, and participated in Parent Engagement Activities such as Cup of Tea with Principal Lee, Muffins with McCalley, ESL Parent meetings, Site Council Meeting and served as volunteers in our classrooms. Thank you!

Your dedication to your child's education is very important. Whether your child is starting pre-kindergarten, entering the final year of middle school, or is somewhere in between, there are many good reasons and opportunities for you to become involved at school. It's a great way to show your child that you take an interest in his or her education, and it sends a positive message that you consider school a worthwhile cause.

Winter in Oregon brings snow flurries, wind and cold weather. Please make sure your children ore dressed appropriately so they can stay warm and dry durirw recess. Students will be outside for recess each day for 20 minutes, unless the temperature or wind chill gets well below 32 degrees. Be prepared by sending a warm coat, hat, mittens, and scarves. Please also be sure their names are on each item, as the items are easier to find that way!

Speaking of winter, this season is famous for inviting colds and viral illnesses into the school. If your child does not feel well in the morning, is running a fever or vomited during the night, please keep him/her home to recover. These types of illnesses can spread quickly in a school environment. In addition, be sure to call the school (503-916-5686) to report that your child will be out of school. If we don't hear from you, the attendance autodialer will call your home to inform you about your child's absence.

We especially would like to thank our special donors for delivering 536 bags of groceries, coats, mittens and warm clothes to our school.

Now that December is here, we have cooler temperatures and disappearing daylight and the holidays are creeping up on us. The upcoming weeks can become quite overwhelming as families prepare for family gatherings, special visits, and perhaps some shopping in preparation for special traditions. As much as we'd all like to feel that we are organized and well prepared for the upcoming weeks, each family deals with the stress of the holidays in different ways. If your family is experiencing a heightened level of stress and are in need of support, please call Andrea Martin, school counselor, at 503-916-5686.

On behalf of our school and district staff, thank you for your partnership with us and best wishes for a happy holiday and prosperous New Year!

LaShawn Lee and Jen McColley
