As we move into October I wanted to make you aware of a calendar change for the month.
We are moving the book character spirit day from Wednesday, October 19th to Monday October 31st. We would love to see your creativity with a book character costume. Most characters are in book so it shouldn't be an issue. If you run into a situation where it causes drama, we will happily accept you in your chosen halloween costume. Please remember that this is a family friendly event. Avoid anything that will make our youngest friends cry. Also, do not include any weapons (knives, guns, swords…) with your costume. Teachers also ask that masks are not worn during the school day. You can put them on for the parade.
The Oregon Department of Education (ODE) issues annual report cards for every school and school district. The report cards offer families and the community valuable information about student attendance and achievement and teacher experience, among other things.
