Annual Food Drive
March 5 to March 22
Last year, students were astounded to find out that Food for Lane County moves over 6 million pounds of food each year and that about 1 in 3 children benefit from their services each year. Advisory classes compete to earn the most points, food items are assigned point values depending on the nutritional value. Students will be bringing home more information soon. Over the past two years, Kelly students have helped bring in more than 6,000 pounds of food. This generates meals for more than 650 families! It is inspiring to watch our student’s band together and take a leadership role in helping feed our community.

Cell Phones

BEST+ Program
Kelly Middle School, along with the City of Eugene, offers after-school activities to Kelly students throughout the school year. The 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.

Who We Are:
The Summer Academy to Inspire Learning (SAIL) is an innovative bridge program that serves middle and high school students from underrepresented backgrounds, which include lower income and/or first-generation college students, with the aim of encouraging students to enroll and succeed in college through early exposure and exploration.

SAIL offers free one-week summer programs on the University of Oregon campus, where students learn about various subjects from distinguished University of Oregon faculty volunteers through fun social and interactive activities. Each summer, returning students choose a new academic subject. SAIL programs include sessions on the college admissions process, scholarship availability, and the financial aid process.

During the school year, SAIL offers mentoring – administered by University of Oregon students – to eligible students who are navigating the college admissions process.
