River Walk
The Entire Student Body Participates
Each year the entire student body participates in the River Walk. This event raises funds for the student-body activities, equipment, and field trips. Last year students raised over $13,000. Students start collecting pledges on Friday, September 22.

The River Walk is held during school hours on Friday, October 6. Students, staff and parent volunteers walk a 5.5-mile loop from school, along the river and back again. There are a variety of volunteer positions available – serving lunch, coordinating collected funds and, of course, walking! This is a great way to get to know other students, parents, and staff. Call Terri Johnson at 541-790-4742 if you are interested in volunteering.

BEST+ (Boosting & Enriching Students Today) After-School Program
Starting October 16, Register NOW!
Duct tape projects, ceramics, engineering, cooking, sports, field trips, oh my!

Kelly Middle School, along with the City of Eugene, offers after-school activities to Kelly students throughout the school year. This after-school program primarily focuses on helping Kelly students succeed in academics by providing homework help. In addition to extra study time, the program also features enrichment classes such as art, cooking, drama, sports and more. Activities are taught by Kelly teachers, City of Eugene instructors, local service agencies, arts agencies, and qualified individuals from the community.

A nutritious snack is provided to start things off, and then kids move on to homework club and enrichment activities. Participating students who normally ride the school bus home after school at 3:30 p.m. instead ride school buses home after the last activity at 5:30 p.m.

Program offerings change regularly. Students will sign up for new rounds of classes at school, and the classes are first-come-first-served. Tuition is $50, with sliding scale fees available. No one is turned away!

Registration forms are available in the front office or click here to print the forms. Fill them out and return the forms to the office. This form gets your student signed up for the program, and they will sign up for classes at school as the program offerings change. You need only fill out this form once per school year. Even if your child was enrolled last year, you must fill out new forms.
