NEW BASKETBALL AFTER-SCHOOL PROGRAM
Looking for a great way for your child to try out an organized team sport for the first time? Then check out One on One Athletics upcoming winter instructional league at Woodmere Elementary school. The league will be formatted in two five-week sessions (one for K-2 and one for 3-5) and consist of skill building through drills and organized scrimmages. Each weekly session is 75 minutes in length! This opportunity is open to several schools in southeast Portland and will be a collaborative community event. Your child can sign up with friends or as an individual; our caring staff will group them into teams onsite and work with them every step of the way.

CALLING FUTURE VETERINARIANS!
The PTA is pleased to announce a new fundraiser for the 4th and 5th grade classes. A raffle for one student to be a "Veterinarian for a Morning" will run from December 1-12. The winning student will experience the role of a veterinarian by observing physical exams, lab tests, procedures, reading xrays, and helping with patient care during their morning visit 9:30-11:30am.


Every child in 4th and 5th grade will automatically have one ticket put into the drawing. Additional raffle tickets can be purchased in the school entrance foyer for 50 cents each, every morning until 8:30am.

The drawing date will be announced. The winner will pick from several available dates. Questions? Please contact
Danni Reche. And many thanks to Danni for spearheading this great fundraising opportunity!
