Also, you’ll have a chance to vote on the color of next year’s t-shirt, learn more about our Playground Campaign, our Garden Program run by Earth Art Agriculture, see what students have been making in Lego Robotics and Lego Machines and have an opportunity to tell Safe Routes to School what needs to change to make our walks and bike rides to school safer.


Grout Association of Seismic Preparedness (GASP) will also have a collection bin for emergency supplies for the school. See the attached GASP flyer for a list of needs.

Museum Exhibit

Also, on the same Friday from 2:30 to 4:30pm, the third grade classes, rooms 201, 202, and 204 will offer a special museum exhibit as part of their unit on Oregon history. Bring a little cash.
