The 5th grade class went to Outdoor School in October. This was an amazing opportunity to spend a few days connecting to the outdoors, and to stretch their experience of education - kids gained a 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.
Mark your calendars for January 22nd from 6:30 to 8:30 pm for another great Candalaria Community event!
Games, dinner, snacks and prizes!! Fun for all ages!
Bingo cards $1 each, 6 for $5, 12 for $10 or family pack of 20 for $15.
All proceeds go to support the 5th grade outdoor school fund.
