The 7th grade Greenhouse class has been busy harvesting and cleaning up the raised beds - the corn, carrots and pumpkins grew crazy over the summer! We just picked 62 pumpkins and so many carrots. Big Max (the giant pumpkin) is on a table in the hallway of the upper building, ready for you to guess its weight - the prize for the closest guess is................Big Max!

For the first My Day Friday, students in Ms. Ford's 4th grade class selected fruit from their classroom fruit stand. Students then practiced using sensory details to describe how the fruit looked, smelled, felt, and tasted. They will apply these skills to their future personal narratives!
Every September, National Voter Registration Day encourages Americans to register to vote and celebrate America's freedom to have citizens shape federal, state, and local governments. Mrs. Anderson's American Government class celebrated the day by voluntarily registering to vote if kids chose to. (Voters can register at the age of 16 in Oregon, even though they won't receive ballots until the age of 18.) Another generation of voters is on its way!

Parents, we have changed the way students enter the building in the morning. If you drop your child off at school, please enter the main parking lot and drop them off at the front door. The only students who should be dropped off at the back parking lot (Mill Street entrance) should be preschool children. K-12th grade students should not arrive at school before 7:45 a.m. Preschool students should arrive at 8:00 a.m. Thank you for following these guidelines for the safety of all students.
