Elementary Newsletter November 2016

Artist In Residence

We are very lucky to have Anne Clairmont as our artist in residence this year! She retired from Marcola after 30 years and has been coming back to support students and staff ever since. In honor of our new school, she is helping the students create a mosaic tile project for the new school. As the students work on their design, she encourages students to think of the beautiful place we live and to remember the special memories of Marcola.

Veteran’s Day

This year our celebration will be two fold. The elementary will host a Veteran’s breakfast at 9:30 in our gym. Please invite any local veteran’s or veteran’s in your family to come join us!

RSVP 541-933-2411

After School Program

This year Laura Watson is the coordinator. It runs from 3-4 after school, (but on days of early release it will be 12-1). This month’s theme is STEM. Please be sure to let the office know if your child will be absent. We have a new option, of a single day drop in. The fee is $2. The monthly cost is $20. If your child needs financial support please contact the office.
