BEST Open House
The BEST after-school program invites you to attend an open house on Thursday, Nov. 15 from 4:30-5:30 PM.  We encourage all parents and guardians who may be interested in enrolling their student to attend and ask questions and learn more about this free program that includes morning and after school options for homework assistance, snack, and activities.  Parents and guardians currently enrolled in BEST are especially requested to attend this open house to see what your student has been learning in our after-school activities and meet the leaders, tutors, and mentors involved in the program.  Please join us!

Healthy Minds, Strong Families
Wednesday, November 14 at 6:00 PM in the Kelly Cafeteria.
This is an informal conversation about mental health and addiction sponsored by Centro Latino Americano. The conversation will be in Spanish with English translation. Childcare will be provided.

There is a brief social with coffee and sweet bread starting at 6:00 PM. At 6:15 PM there will be introductions by everyone present, followed by small group conversations and gathering of questions and concerns by facilitators. The last 20 minutes is for unstructured time to talk to other families and facilitators to share and get more information.

Juntos Project
The Center for Equity Promotion (CEQP) at the University of Oregon is conducting a program to support Latino parents and middle school staff in helping Latino middle school students do well in school.

Parents/guardians are invited to complete the final anonymous survey as a part of the Juntos Project. You can access the online survey at https://ceqp.uoregon.edu/ . Click on the photo of your student’s school, and then choose “Parent” survey. The survey opens automatically. There is a drop-down arrow for choosing either English or Spanish. Alternatively, paper copies are available at the front office at your child’s school; you can return your completed survey at the front office as well. All surveys will be available from October 29 until November 30, 2018.

Kelly Middle School will receive a $1.00 donation by CEQP for each completed PARENT survey.

North Eugene Mat Club
We are having a fundraiser at Papa’s Pizza on Coburg Rd. Next Wednesday 11/14. The event runs all day and we are in high hopes of raising enough to provide workout outfits for our kiddos. As well as many other necessities such as cleaner, tape, and sponges for the mats, fees for referees, maintenance of gym area and much more. Click here for flyer.
