Voters will get the opportunity to approve a bond measure for the Fern Ridge School District in the May 20th primary election. Measure 20-220 is not expected to increase the school bond tax rate as it just extends the current tax rate and replaces an expiring bond. FRSD will use the funds from the bond to make long range facility improvements throughout the school district as well as increase student safety and upgrade technology. There will be a bond oversight committee composed of district staff, parents, and community members to ensure that the funds are spent in line with the long range facility plan and district goals.
Veneta Elementary’s Annual Talent Show is this Friday at 12:30 in our gym. Student performers will entertain with singing, magic, jokes, and other amazing acts.

We also want to thank the teachers who have worked hard to make the Talent Show happen and to provide this opportunity for our students- Ms. Beller, Mrs. Pebworth, and Mrs. McGuire.
