  • Drive slowly. There are parents and kids walking through the parking lot.

  • Continually remind your child to look both ways when walking in the parking lot and to not run after getting out of your car.

  • Refrain from checking your phone while driving through the parking lot or while waiting for the cars to move forward.

  • Thank you for helping us keep our parking lot safe!

Get Ready For Our Walk -A-Thon on Friday, October 5, 2018!

Tomorrow is our Walk-a-thon! Some have asked why it was moved to the fall instead of having it in the spring, like in past years. At the end of last year, we noticed that our biggest school fundraiser was being done at the end of the school year and that funds that were raised would not be used until the following school year. We decided to move it to the fall so that the funds could be used for the current school year.

Here is some important information for tomorrow:

  • We still need volunteers. If you are able to volunteer, please call our front office, 503-649-5518

  • It might rain. Please send an extra change of clothes, socks, and shoes with your child

  • Have your child bring their pledge form. This form also serves as a permission to run and a waiver.

Please make sure your child wears PE shoes (tennis shoes) to PE. Its very important for them to wear the appropriate shoes for participation and safety. In PE we do a lot of running, jumping, and are always on the move. We want to keep your kids safe and avoid any accidents.

Also, if your daughter wants to wear a dress/skirt to school, make sure they wear shorts under the dress/skirt for PE.

Thank you,
