AVID Strides for Education Run/Walk
Please read about this healthy way to support our school!  On April 9, 2017, we are joining all middle and high schools to participate in the 1st Annual “Eugene 4J 6K Strides for Education” run/walk to celebrate AVID and raise funds to support this program in each of our schools.  On-line registration ($20 for adults; $10 for 4J students) is now available at the following link:  http://www.eclecticedgeracing.com/4j-6k-strides-for-education.html

This will be a professionally managed 6 kilometer run/walk on the bike path along the banks of the Willamette River.  The proceeds will support having college tutors at our school, sending students on college visit field trips, and more.

Parents and friends, in case you didn’t know, our school is one of many AVID sites in the Eugene School District.  AVID is a college and career readiness system; it stands for “Advancement Via Individual Determination.”   Hundreds of 4J teachers have been trained to utilize AVID strategies to improve instructional practice.  You can learn more about AVID at http://www.avid.org

Nominate “A Champion in Education” Today!
Who always makes a difference in your child’s school day?  An inspiring teacher?  An encouraging school secretary?  A dedicated volunteer?  A principal who leads by example? A bus driver who always takes the time to listen? Now is the time to recognize their contributions through the annual ACE (A Champion in Education) Awards!

To nominate a 4J employee or volunteer who demonstrates excellence in education, go to www.theaceaward.org. Every nominee will be honored at an awards ceremony in April, and one person in each category will win a $1,000 cash prize toward a project or program in their school.  Nominations must be submitted by March 24.

The ACE Awards are a collaborative effort of the Eugene and Springfield chambers of commerce and the Eugene, Bethel and Springfield school districts.  The program is presented by Oregon Community Credit Union and supported by others from the local business community.
