    Odyssey 678 presents: 'TROY: THE MUSICAL!' - suitable for ALL ages

    Thursday, March 16th at 6:30PM & Sunday, March 19th at 4:00PM
    Doors open approximately 45 minutes prior to curtain time.
    Show is approx. 90 minutes long.

    'TROY: THE MUSICAL!' is a light-hearted adaptation of Homer's sixth century BC epic poem, The Iliad. With help from meddling Greek Gods and Goddesses, self-centered Prince Paris of Troy steals the heart of the married and feeble-minded beauty, Helen of Sparta. Predictably, chaos and destruction ensue. Filled with musical numbers (to the tune of 'Little Shop of Horrors'), sword fights, and not-so-romantic love scenes, TROY: THE MUSICAL! follows the story of Paris and Helen's doomed love as they spread misery throughout the ancient kingdoms of the Aegean Sea.

    Run For The Arts! Next Thursday – Need Volunteers

    We are looking forward to our first Run for the Arts at East Sylvan, which will take place next Thursday, March 23. Thank you to everyone for securing sponsors for this event. The money raised provides arts programming for our school.

    Coach has designed the route, which will keep the kids on pavement to avoid muddy clothes and shoes. The schedule for the day will be:

    K12 run at 8:30
    345 run at 9:30
    678 run at 12:30

    We will need several parent volunteers to help the day run smoothly. Please email me at jchildes@gmail.com if you are available to help with 1 or more clusters. The greatest volunteer need is for the K12 and 345 clusters, but would be great to have 1-2 parents help Coach with 678 at 12:30. The kids also love to have parents cheering them on along the course.

    Thanks,
    Jana Childes

    Summer is coming! So is the Hayhurst/Odyssey Auction!

    Summer is coming! Tickets to our auction that benefits Hayhurst and the Odyssey Program at East Sylvan go on sale next week for our May 20 event.

    Did you know that auction money helped renovate our auditorium and buy over $10,000 of technology for our kids in the Odyssey program this year? School budgets are not increasing this year and funneling money through the PTA makes our program stronger.

    The donation form is attached and can be found in the office. Return the form to Angela in the office or to me personally. Or to Cathy at Hayhurst. Or hand it to Ms. Froehlich.

    And no worries - auction basket donations will start after spring break.

    Run for the Arts – Forms DUE Friday March 10

    Run for the Arts is quickly approaching and sponsor sheets are due on Friday, March 10. I am happy to take over coordinator duties this year. Please feel free to email me, Jana Childes, jchildes@gmail.com, with any questions.

    This year students are able to collect in-person sponsors, as well as online sponsors. To collect online sponsors, visit their website at runforthearts.ya-or.org to register your student and then send their page to friends and relatives. Online donations are made via PayPal and go directly into our school account, which eliminates the need to collect the donation after the run. Just be sure to list the online sponsors on the sponsor form so that the total number of sponsors is counted toward earning a t-shirt.

    Young Audiences Run for the Arts is a simple and effective fundraising jog-a-thon that helps schools raise money for arts programming.

    Young Audiences Run for the Arts is a trusted, well-known tradition in the Oregon and SW Washington Community. For over 35 years, Young Audiences Run for the Arts has helped schools raise nearly $15 million for arts in education.

    What do run funds provide?
    Teaching artist residencies, performances and workshops by Young Audiences roster artists or community artists
    Field trips to concerts, plays, exhibitions, etc.
    Supplies for visual arts and performing arts programs
    Professional development that supports teachers use of arts in their classroom

    December 2016

    Dear Odyssey Community,

    It is hard to believe that December is quickly flying by, with a little winter weather, and lots of activities one can feel the holidays are right around the corner, and the first half of the school year is coming to a close.

    January 1st will be Mrs. Maureen McGuinness's last day, as after many years of working in the school system she is is retiring. We will greatly miss her, as part of our Hayhurst-Odyssey team, but wish her all the best on her next adventures in life. Blake Engeldorf will be talking her place for the remainder of the school year. Mr. Engeldorf was the long term sub, for Susie Goetz this past Fall so he is familiar with our school set up and many of the students.

    Due to the wackiness of the month with the few snow days, I am moving the December birthday party to January and will combine the two parties in early January...more info. on the date in the new year.

    I want to thank everyone who participated in making the Giving Snowman a huge success this year!! This is an event that should make everyone feel good! As I begin to send the bags home with families, we have already had tears, thanks, and hugs. This is truly an event of community supporting community. Your generosity and kindness have definitely made the difference in many of our own families. THANK YOU!!

    I want to wish all of you a happy and healthy winter vacation. Enjoy the time as a family. Play board games together, eat meals together, laugh together, even do a little school work (reading and math together), our children grow up quickly so enjoy those precious moments.

    Happy Holidays!
    Cheers to the New Year!

    See you on January 3rd for the second half of the school year with lots of learning and fun!

    Thanks,
    Deanne Froehlich
    Principal

  • From Tom Koehler, Chair of the Board of Education: Budget and Bond

    中文 Русский Soomaaliga Español Tiếng Việt

    Dear PPS Families and Staff:

    Spring is approaching and it’s that time of year when we begin building budgets and plans for the next school year.

    I spent Monday in Salem with a fellow board member, PPS principals and educators and school districts from across Oregon to advocate for additional resources to support K-12 education and our local schools. The state is facing a shortfall of approximately $1.7 billion and the budgets proposed for K-12 from the Governor and Legislature are not adequate to maintain current levels of services.

  • Email and Password Security Best Practices

    Over the past couple of months there have been several email phishing/scam attacks targeted at education organizations. These attacks have occurred both within and outside of PPS, and there is reason to believe that their frequency will continue to increase. IT continually works on monitoring for these attacks and routinely blocks spoofed email address and suspicious links to reduce the number of security incidents that can be caused by these types of attacks. Remember to be diligent when opening an email or attachment, clicking links, or downloading images and verify the sender is who they claim.
