  • Volunteers Needed for Climate Team and Site Council

    We are looking for community members to join our School Climate Team and Site Council:  

    The School Climate Team’s main responsibility is to coordinate our work around Duniway’s Core Values, Community Expectations, and Discipline/Behavior Support.  This group generally meets on the second Wednesday every month (with some exceptions – next meeting is 10/19).
      
    The Site Council’s main objective is to review and monitor the implementation of Duniway’s Comprehensive Achievement Plan (CAP).  The CAP is a PPS and Oregon mandated document that details specific efforts to improve Duniway.   The Site Council generally meets on a quarterly basis (first meeting will be in late October).

    Both of these opportunities give the participants great insight into the change process.   If you are interested, please contact Matt Goldstein at mgoldste@pps.net .  
  • Fred Meyer Community Rewards Program

    Families enrolled in the Fred Meyer Community Rewards program will receive an email on June 8th directing them to re-link their Rewards Card to the Duniway Educational Foundation. Please remember to do this then, or to take care of it now, by logging on to your account at www.fredmeyer.com/communityrewards/.

    If you fail to re-link your Rewards Card by July 1st, you will be dropped from the program and Duniway will no longer get any support based on your purchases.

    Last year our school received nearly $700 just because people like you took 30 seconds to link their Rewards Cards to Duniway (#82148). Please do so again, and tell all your friends, neighbors and relatives to do the same! For more information, contact Melanie Chadderdon at melaniechadderdon@hotmail.com.

    Dear Families,

    It was wonderful to see many of you at Back to School Night.  I always enjoy the opportunity to speak with families about the outstanding work taking place at Duniway and our efforts to continually improve the experience for all students and families.  If you were unable to attend, please be sure to connect with her child’s teacher to get the critical information that was shared.

    Today, Duniway students took to the playground for Field Day.  There was plenty of excitement, fun, and lots of sunshine.  Thanks to our PE teacher Patrick Donahoe and the many volunteers who made today possible. 

    On Wednesday we had our first fire drill of the year.  The students did an excellent job evacuating the building quickly and calmly.  Our entire school meets up on the field where each teacher ensures that all students are accounted for.  As some of you may have heard, on Thursday, we had another (this one unplanned) fire drill and again, all students and staff did a great job evacuating the building.  The alarm went off due to a malfunction in the control panel.  There was not a “pull” and there was no response by the fire department.  We have worked with PPS and are assured that the problem has been fixed.

    In addition to monthly fire drills, we will have several other drills in the coming weeks and months; including lockout, lockdown, and earthquake.  While these drills cause a bit of stress for some students, it is vital that we practice. Our school safety team and our entire school staff always has an eye on student health and safety and drills are one piece of how we work to create a safe environment for all Duniway community members.

    If you did not have a chance to see the art room during Back to School Night, please take a minute when you can to check it out.  A huge thank you to the PTA and Art Committee Chair Sarah Lewis for the gorgeous remodel.  Brand new tables, stools, a fresh coat of paint, and a ton of reorganization has made a great difference.  I look forward to seeing our 500 plus artists working away in this new space.

    Speaking of our PTA, I also want to acknowledge the support the PTA is placing behind science this year.  A new budget line with $2500 is being used by grade level teams to bring hands-on science to Duniway students.  We already have 4th and 5th grade tapping into this fund and I know other grade level teams will soon follow.  I look forward to looking for additional ways to improve our science program at Duniway.

    Although our new website is still a work in progress, the calendar, right on the home page, is updated with the latest events.  We will continue to add additional content to the site in the coming weeks and months.  If anyone is interested in helping maintain and develop the web site, please contact me.  It is a great way to volunteer when you do not have the time to come to school during the day.

    Hope you have a great weekend!

    Regards,

    Matt Goldstein
