    8th Grade Graduation Request

    Our amazing eighth graders will soon be leaving the Odyssey community!

    As we prepare to send off our amazing group of 8th graders to High School, please consider donating gifts or money to support the creation of gift bags. Gift bags are a long-standing Odyssey tradition and are presented to our graduates on their promotion date (Monday, June 10th). Gifts could include:

    · gift cards (Starbucks, Dutch Bros, Subway, Jamba Juice, etc.)

    · stationery/school items (thank you cards, pens, mechanical pencils)

    · gift certificates to local eateries

    · candy, fidget toys

    · picture frames

    · $ (any value helps!) to go towards any of the above

    We have 23 graduates so if donating, please provide the item(s) in that amount. 

    Anyone (including parents of K-5 kids) can donate - - pay it forward and keep the tradition alive! Please turn in your donations by WEDNESDAY JUNE 5 to the school office.

    Odyssey Summer Family Campout at Oxbow Regional Park August 23-25 

    Join us for a community campout this summer at Oxbow Regional Park. It is 25 miles east of Portland (about a 45 minute drive) on the Sandy River. There are flush toilets (and a few vault toilets), free hot showers, a playground, an amphitheater, many trails and access to sandy beaches, wading, inner tube floating. There are 14 tent sites that we reserved (unfortunately, no RV sites were available). You can come out Friday afternoon and stay both nights, or come out Saturday for one night (or just the day). We always have a great time swimming, splashing and inner tubing in the river, building fires, roasting marshmallow and getting to know each other better. Note that camping sites are limited, so don’t wait until the last minute!


    More information, pictures and directions to Oxbow Regional Park can be found here: https://www.oregonmetro.gov/parks/oxbow-regional-park/camping-oxbow


    2 nights: $52 + a one time $5 parking fee that you pay to the park when you arrive (up to two cars per site)

    1 night:   $38 +  a one time $5 parking fee that you pay to the park when you arrive (up to two cars per site)
