Kidsports Scholarships

Vouchers Available

THROUGH THE ‘ADOPT-A-SCHOOL’ program, we have scholarship vouchers at Kelly Middle School for Kidsports activities. Please check with the office to apply for a voucher.

Winter Is Coming:  Snow Day Decisions and Notifications

Winter Weather: Snow Day Information

When winter weather arrives, schools may be closed or delayed or buses may use snow routes. These decisions are made by the school district early in the morning and are the same for every 4J school.

 

Snow day notifications: Our school district communicates any decision to change school or bus schedules as quickly as possible in several ways, all well before 6:30 a.m.

 

  • Sign up for alerts via Twitter: 4j.lane.edu/weather/#texts
  • Check the district website homepage: www.4j.lane.edu
  • Follow district social media channels:

– Facebook: facebook.com/4Jschools

– Twitter: twitter.com/4jschools and twitter.com/4Jweather

  • Tune in to local news media

 

No news = No change. If schools and buses are on their regular schedule, there will NOT be an announcement.

Message from BEST

BEST Families,

 

Please join us for our Winter Family Pizza Night on Thursday, December 12 after program! The event will run from 5:30pm until 7pm, with food and refreshments provided in the cafeteria while you mingle with other families, meet our BEST Staff, and learn more about what your student has been up to during the first two sessions of the year. Families will have the opportunity to visit some of the enrichment classrooms to hear from the staff teaching those classes, and see examples of some of the amazing projects and activities your students have participated in over the last two months.

 

Hope you can join us!

SAVE THE DATE:

The Student Services Department is hosting some Parent Symposium Events this year and our kick-off event is January 13th from 6-7 p.m. in the Auditorium at the Education Center located at 200 North Monroe St. The topic for this event will surround Student Services visioning process and Student Success Act priorities. We hope to see you there. If you are in need of a translator please contact Kathy Anthony at 541-790-7868 and we will arrange for that.

 

We look forward to our partnership and collaboration,

SSD Leadership Team

 

Barnes and Noble

We would like to invite all families to attend the Barnes and Noble Book Fair to raise money for our student programs. This is a great way to purchase books you are wanting for you or for someone else and support our school at the same time. All you need to do is stop by on Dec. 14, tell them that you are with the Kelly Middle School book fair and purchase your item. Our PILOT leaders will be on site reading stories and making crafts for the little ones.

Kelly/YG Transition Team

UPDATE

To support the joining of staffs and student populations, a team of teachers, parents and classified staff members will be meeting every month beginning on December 12. The purpose of this team is to bring stakeholders together, provide valuable input, and communicate to the wider school community about the transition. Please continue to read this document for future updates from this work team.

 

Kelly/YG Combined Site Council Meeting

On Wednesday, December 11, the Kelly site council group will host the YG site council group in the Kelly library at 3:45. This meeting will begin the process of sharing concerns, important details around the move and how to begin to create community on the Kelly campus for school year 2020/2021. We invite parents and staff to attend, but we will not be taking public comment.
