Open House & Free Pizza Social
Wednesday, September 27
We welcome you to our school beginning at 5:30 pm for our 6th Annual Pizza Social. Come share pizza and a drink, meet new friends, connect with old friends, and kick off the school year in style!  Free pizza and drinks will be provided by the school. Thanks to Papa’s Pizza for supporting Kelly Middle School.

An Open House will follow our pizza feed. Parents will follow a mini-schedule, similar to the one their student follows every day. It’s a great opportunity to meet your child’s teachers, ask questions, learn about classroom expectations and curriculum, and explore the school.

Because time is limited, this is not a time for discussing individual student issues. Should there be a need to meet with teachers, you are invited to contact the teacher (via e-mail or by calling the school office) and schedule an appointment.

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.

Early Release
Kelly has early release typically on the 3rd Friday of the month and students are released at 12:45 PM. There are three months that are an exception to the 3rd Friday rule and this month is one of them. Our 1st early release is Friday, September 29. You can always check the Kelly calendar on our website for no school days and early release days (www.kelly.4j.lane.edu)
