Good morning Ockley Green Families and Community, May 14, 2018
We are officially on the countdown to the last day of school and all the festivities that come with it. Planning is underway for end-of year 8th grade events, an OG field day, talent show and several field trips. Please be sure to watch for emails and flyers coming home from teachers and other OG staff.
Thank-you again to the OG PTA and all the families who contributed to the amazing food and gifts for our staff last week. We were showered with care and kindness and this made the week a special one. A big thank-you to Doris Tamoro, PTA president and to Kari and Thomas Powers who made a delicious lunch for us on Friday.
The St. Johns Parade was incredible and our Ockley Green Marching Band and Dancers were amazing! Not only did they have new uniforms, but also a beautiful new banner. Once again huge thanks to Mr. Littledyke and Mr. Keller for their commitment to expanding our arts department to include these programs.
Please be on the lookout for information regarding forecasting for next year. Mr. Jamieson has been working on a Google Form to send to students so they can select electives for 2018-2019. We will be sure to let you have that information first hand so you and your student can discuss the choices. As you look at options don’t forget that all students are required to have one quarter of Health and PE or Dance. These are directives from the State of Oregon to better serve our students in developing wellness habits.
It is great to have all of our 6th graders back from Outdoor School. By all accounts the students had an amazing time and came back with wonderful stories to share about their adventures. Thank-you to the 6th grade team for coordinating this wonderful experience for our students.
Have a wonderful week,
SUN School Showcase & Family Night

Could you pass the U.S. citizenship test? Maybe. Maybe not. Some questions may surprise people who were born and raised in this country, and certainly could be a challenge for newcomers. That’s why eight Roosevelt High School students spend their Wednesday evenings teaching the ins and outs of the test to more than 50 immigrants through the Mission: Citizen program.
Lincoln ran away with the girls team title, and Benson used a strong performance in the sprints to win the boys championship in the Portland Interscholastic League track and field championships at Franklin High School on Friday.
