Upcoming Events

Dear Kelly Families,
We have a wonderful opportunity for our Kelly students to learn Mexican traditional dances. Ms. Teresa Montes, a volunteer parent at El Camino del Río, has put together two dance groups at the elementary school. She is offering to work with Kelly students on Wednesday evenings, from 7:00 to 7:30 p.m. The immediate goal is to teach students a dance to be performed during our Benito Juárez Celebration, coming up on Friday, April 10. The long-term goal is to create the possibility to form a regular middle school dance troupe at Kelly.
For information, please contact Fernell López at 541-790-4759, email: lopez_f@4j.lane.edu, or directly with Teresa Montes phone# 5415102331, or Nikita Brougher email:
