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.
All Candalaria parents and students are invited to our Open House on September 6th! Come see your classroom and meet your teacher, as well as the other Candalaria staff. Please feel free to bring your school supplies with you, if you have them. Parents, if you have medication for your child, this would be a great time to turn it in to the office. Parents of kindergarten students, you will have an opportunity to get your child's assessment time schedule if you haven't already.
At 6:30 p.m., after the Open House, we will have a gathering in the cafeteria for new parents and any other parents who would like more information about our school. You will learn about upcoming events planned for this year, various volunteer opportunities, and meet our principal, Mr. Karl Paulson, as well as some of our PTA members.
