The Child Center is presenting a series of four classes for parents on collaborative problem solving. Collaborative problem solving is an exciting model that teachers you and your child skills that will reduce meltdowns, increase positive relationships, and improve communications. Parents with child in elementary school or middle school will find the strategies used in collaborative problem solving useful and effective. If you are struggling with your child’s challenging behaviors or are frustrated and searching for a more effective way to manage your child’s behavior, then collaborative problem solving could be what the solution you are looking for.
The classes will be held on Thursdays at Elmira Elementary School from 6 PM to 7:30 PM starting February 28th. Dinner will be served and childcare provided during the class. Space is limited so if you are interested call 541-726-1465 to register.
EES Lost and Found is over flowing with clothes!
In order to help us get clothing back to your child, please put your child’s name in their jackets, sweatshirts or other important pieces of clothing.
On Friday, January 25th, all Lost and Found items will be donated.
Please encourage your students to come take a look or come down to look for lost items.
Our Lost and Found is located outside of the cafeteria.
The building will be open on Friday, January 25th during teacher work day for families to come look for missing clothing. All clothes will be donated at 3:00pm that day.
Our school board members are unpaid volunteers with their own jobs and families who give countless hours to our district. We want to take this opportunity to thank them for all of their hard work and dedication.
Our board members make many critical decisions that have an impact on our staff, students and community. They attend workshops and conferences, are responsible for setting policies, completing a yearly evaluation of the superintendent and reviewing financial reports.
In Fern Ridge, our school board members work hard to connect with students and school staff. They take time out of their own personal and professional lives to be a part of special events held throughout the district in addition to attending the monthly board meetings and all of the budget committee meetings.
Thank you Mark Boren, Sterling Pew, Andrea Larson, Barbara Graham-Adams and Jebadiah Flowers. You are superheros in our community and we appreciate all that you do!

Over the next month or so, FRSD is collecting data from a wide variety of groups. This is for the “Continuing Improvement Plan” required every three years by Oregon Department of Education. Input from multiple sources and stakeholders is required by the state for the final plan. Emails are going out to Teachers, Instructional Assistants, Administrators, etc…
For the two groups mentioned in the title above, Community Partners, (e.g. Businesses/Elected Officials/Non-Profits, Early Childhood Education/After School Programs, TSP) and Parents, we have links to the surveys here in this post. The “indicators” on your particular survey were chosen from 18 different indicators the state wants Fern Ridge School District to address in our improvement plan and are verbatim from the master list. If you fall into either of these groups, please take a few minutes and answer the questions in these surveys. The direct links are below. Thanks in advance for your participation.
