Out of an abundance of caution, we are cancelling the Golden Ticket Dance that is scheduled for this Friday, February 22nd. We have had many students reporting symptoms of an influenza like illness and we’d like to make sure we don’t do anything to further the spread in our school population. PALS will discuss the possible rescheduling of the dance at their next board meeting.

PALS would like to invite you to Wonka’s Golden Ticket Dance on February 22, from 6:00-8:00pm.

There will be family fun for all ages, with a DJ, pizza for sale, and a selfie station.

Tickets will be sold at the door. $2 per person or $5 for a family of four.

Parents and/or Guardians must accompany students.


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.

Fern Ridge School District’s Annual Title Night will be held December 10 at 5 p.m. in the district office’s board room located at 88834 Territorial Highway, Elmira. This is your opportunity to discover the ways we use our Title dollars to serve your students.


A huge thank you to The Corson & Johnson Law Firm, Wendy Craigmiles, and Andrew Neill of Bicycle Way of Life for providing bike helmets to 25 of our students. These lucky few received some awesome, great fitting helmets. Thank you, Corson & Johnson Law Firm for choosing VES kids as recipients of your generosity!

VES is celebrating Red Ribbon Week by pledging to be drug free.

Mr. Moeller’s class created self portraits with their pledge. They are SO AWESOME!

Thanks to the Oregon Country Fair and PALS for giving our kids the opportunity to learn about African drumming and dance during the two week Artist in Residence experience at Veneta Elementary. The kids loved it, learned from it, and did a great job performing at the assembly today.

Thank You!
