It’s been a productive fall harvest. High School Science hosted 2nd and 4th-grade classes at the Dufur School garden. They picked, shucked, boiled, and ate corn, and with the husks, they made corn husk dolls as they learned the story behind them. 7th grade harvested the remaining corn to take home. What a full-on cornucopia!

Dufur's unique hybrid schedule makes for excellent opportunities to take small groups off campus for enriching activities that make memories and build relationships among students and staff. Today, Mrs. Wilson and Mrs. Hertel took 6th graders sledding out of Dufur, Mrs. Anderson took 8th graders on a walk around downtown The Dalles to view and study historical murals, and Mrs. Darden took 7th graders on a hike to the Mosier tunnels. It was a beautiful day to enjoy the sunshine!

Mrs. Larsen is a freelance educator who specializes in teaching Pacific Northwest Native American history from all perspectives. Our unit focused on the Lewis & Clark expedition and its impact on Native Americans in the area. Students studied primary source documents from both parties, and then chose an area to further research and share.

As the new school year approaches many questions are present around what school will look like for the 20/21 school year. The districts planning team is in place and making good progress. We will be providing an update by weeks end on that work. A couple areas of great concern for families as identified on our recent survey, 1. Child Care, the district is very aware of this challenge, and is working toward being a part of the solution with child care when school begins. 2. Deciding whether or not to have students return to school. To return, or not to return during the pandemic is strictly a families decision. Families more comfortable with an online only option will have support from the school district. Please don't feel that you have to develop a home school curriculum, the district can and will provide materials and support for your students until they return to daily attendance. Information changes rapidly, moving forward the district will provide weekly updates on progress. If you have specific questions please call, 541-467-2509. I look forward to working together in the coming weeks to provide a quality learning experience for each Dufur School family.

On Saturday, May 30th at 10:00 a.m. Dufur School will celebrate our 2020 graduates with a drive in graduation, followed by a parade through Dufur. Seniors and family will line up at the school in their cars for the ceremony, roses, and class gifts. This unique graduation will include, pre-recorded speeches, slide show, awarding of the Jerri Walker Depriest Scholarships, as well as presentation of the class of 2020. Thanks to Shannon Milburn and Gorge Country Media the ceremony will be broadcast locally over the radio at 98.1 FM. Thanks to Nolan Hare Productions, and Great Skot Productions for providing a live video stream. This link will be on the District website, as well as the District's facebook page for access on Saturday. After seniors receive their diplomas they will then leave the school and follow the parade route. We are asking that the community show support by lining the parade route to cheer them on, make signs, etc. Due to COVID-19 and the limitations we must abide by we cannot let the community join us at the school at this time. Seniors will be able to attend with their family members in 1 vehicle for the ceremony and parade. Banners will be set up around town commemorating each senior. Below their banners we will also set up posters for the community to sign and give well wishes. If you have any further questions please contact Graduation Coordinators: Dufur School or the graduation coordinators.

At the beginning of our time together for social/emotional learning, we check in as a class of how we are feeling. We use 👍 (great day) 👎 (tough day) or thumb to the side for doing ok today. Students sometimes share why they are feeling the way they are and we often ask what we can do to help if someone is a 👎. Yesterday in Mrs. Flores’ Kindergarten class, a student responded that a hug would help. Her classmates immediately asked “GROUP HUG????”, when she replied “Yes”, this is the support she got! I am in constant awe of the empathy, respect and love our kids show one another on a daily basis!

This is part of this year's Botany/Greenhouse class's pumpkin crop. They were grown from seeds that were saved and planted by the 4th & 5th grade classes last spring. They grew 120 pumpkins this year. Some were sold, some were given away and some were donated to the Dufur Food Pantry. Students are saving seeds for next spring.
