The 5th grade class will be going to Outdoor School in April. This is an amazing opportunity to spend a few days connecting to the outdoors, and to stretch their experience of education - kids gain meaningful exposure to fields related to science, engineering, and the arts.
Why are we sharing this with you? Before the tax year closes, we invite you to help send our kids into nature to have this authentic hands-on and science-based learning activities with a contribution to the general costs of outdoor school. As a public school event we want to reduce the overall cost so that no child has a barrier in attending. Please note:
Donations are easy! Click the donation link on the Candalaria PTA homepage, and list Outdoor School as the program your donation should benefit.
For those wondering about the recently passed measure that will support this activity for all kids in Oregon public schools, Measure 99, it does not go into effect until the 2017-2018 school year. As the measure is unfunded we are waiting to see what that means for the current 4th graders next year.

The kids learned at an assembly today that we hit our goal of $20,000! They were beyond excited to find out there will be an inflatable obstacle course in PE for a day. Click HERE to hear their excitement!
They also enjoyed the "special performance" by Mr. Paulson, who rode into the gym on his UNICYCLE! He encouraged kids to try new things and learn new skills, just like he did as a child when he learned to ride the unicycle.
It was a great assembly...Top runners were honored, raffle prizes were announced and the kids' accomplishments for running and fundraiser were celebrated. The PTA couldn't be more proud of the students and their efforts and attitudes!
