We would like to invite all families to join us for the upcoming PTO meeting happening  Tuesday the 19th from 6:00-7:00 PM. We will be discussing the important topic of the upcoming merge of YG to Kelly, at this meeting you can hear the details, ask questions, and discuss how parents can help make this a smooth transition. Board members will be attending this meeting. We hope to see you there!

 

OBOB

Thanks to the dedication and volunteer efforts of some students and parents, we will be providing an opportunity to participate in this year’s Oregon Battle of the Books (OBOB) academic competition. Students will be encouraged to read books selected for the competition and join a school “team” to compete at the school level against other student teams. Regional and State competitions are held following school-level “battles.”

There is availability for students to listen to audio books if they feel the need to do so that is also, another acceptable option to compete. You can find a link on the official OBOB website for the audiobooks

If you would like your student to participate regular meetings will be on Monday and Friday at lunch in Rm 6.

Please encourage your student to read every night and consider joining an OBOB team. A link to the OBOB website is included for your convenience.

Student Success Act


Let’s Talk! Student Success Act: Investments for Success  

 

New funding is coming to 4J schools. Oregon’s Student Success Act is expected to provide Eugene School District 4J about $12–13 million per year starting with the 2020–21 school year—about a 5% increase in the district’s general fund budget.

 

The district is engaging staff, families and community members to inform the planning for how to spend these funds to best support student success. The funds must be targeted to increase academic achievement, reduce disparities among student groups, and meet students’ behavioral and mental health needs. You’re invited to join the conversation.
