The folk saying “in like a lion, out like a lamb” refers to March weather – but it could also refer to our March calendar! We kick the month off with the annual PSO auction, Celebrate Learning! on Saturday, March 5th (hope
you have your tickets!)
Between now and Spring Break our students participate in field trips, Core Knowledge events, the monthly assembly and Birthday-in-a-Bag! Our Board of Directors is busy moving forward with goals detailed in our Strategic Plan, and in the office, we are hiring a new staff member, collecting new student applications and conducting school tours.
Best of all, our teachers are covering Columbus and Pilgrims, Fairy Tales, Insects, the Civil War, Earliest Americans, Oregon Studies, the Constitution, Geology, Plants, Cold War and Reconstruction, Latin American Independence,
the New Deal, and the Vietnam War – just to name a few.
MITCH could not function without our parent volunteers – THANK YOU! Every hour you give is invaluable for our teachers and students: to date, you have given more than 3,100 hours to support your school! The average volunteer gives about 8 hours a month – kudos! A special Thank You to the 100-Hour Club members:
Lindsie Bailey, Ed Duax, Amber Faylor, Dan Gauer, Beth Hudson, Sunkyu Kim, Garry Mainerich, Karen Matsuoka, Renea Ostermiller and Ed Roller.
Our very first member of the 200-Hour Club is Marie Welsh – thank you!
Remember, any time you volunteer is important. Whenever you are working on special projects away from the school, be sure to document those hours through HelpCounter – you can do it from your own computer. Also, if your employer provides a matching program for your volunteer hours, HelpCounter provides a verification report to give to your employer.
