Fern Ridge School District Bond Measure 20-220
The Fern Ridge School District is seeking a $26.67 million facilities bond in the May 20, 2014 primary election to replace Elmira Elementary School, renovate other school facilities, and improve technology and safety throughout the District. If approved by voters, Measure 20-220 would replace the 1997 levy that is expiring soon, and is projected to result in no increase to the school bond tax rate that property owners currently pay.
Measure 20-220 is based on recommendations from the District’s community-led Long Range Facilities Planning Committee. Major components of Measure 20-220 are:
• Replace most of Elmira Elementary on same site, with construction steps that allow students to remain on site.
• Expand and renovate Veneta Elementary to allow supervision from front office, an enclosed library, additional classrooms, a cafeteria and kitchen, and to move bus traffic out of main parking lot.
• Renovations at Fern Ridge Middle School to library, office, and associated spaces for safety, acoustics, and student learning.
• Expand and renovate Elmira High School to include a second gymnasium and meet Title IX criteria.
• Address student safety and security, including seismic work, at all sites.
• Acquire technology to support classroom instruction and technology infrastructure.
• Improve, repair, and develop facilities and sites to preserve remaining assets and systems and plan for growth.
The PTA is looking for donations of gift certificates, products or services to help them make this auction a success! If you or someone you know is willing to donate to our school please contact Tammy Eutsler at 541-935-9569 or the school office at 541-935-8214.
The PTA will use proceeds to support the staff and students. This has included; assemblies, field trips, class party funds, 5th grade outdoor school and much more!
Cody is the type of student that every teacher would love to have in her class. Cody gives a 100% in everything he does. He always has a smile, a kind word, or a helpful hand to offer. He is the first to congratulate other students for a job well done and encourage others who may need some extra support. We are very proud and please to have such a wonderful student like Cody in my class. Congratulations Cody!
