Elmira Elementary School



Hello EES Families-

Iditaread is fast approaching!  The kick off assembly is going to be held on Thursday, January 24th at 1:30.

If you are interested in a volunteer opportunity & we need your help, please click on the link   https://www.volunteersignup.org/M4W3Y  to sign up to count minutes that the kids read each day.  This only takes a small amount of time in the morning after drop off.

If you have any questions, please let me know & I will get you in contact with the Chairpersons, Alison & Shahalie.

Thank you for supporting the kids and helping to foster a love of reading!!

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.
