THE OREGON PLAN AN EDUCATIONAL ALTERNATIVE FOR OREGON STUDENTS PRESENTED BY THE OREGON NATIONAL GUARD The Military Career Education Cluster Program known as “The Oregon Plan” is a program of career education through formal resident military schooling endorsed by the Oregon Department of Education. To enroll into the Oregon Plan students must enlist in the Oregon National Guard and attend training one weekend a month (i.e., initial active duty training). After successful completion of Basic Training, participants may go to one of the hundred plus vocational skills training courses the National Guard offers. These technical schools range in length from 6 to 52 weeks, depending on the complexity of the skills to be mastered, and are located at various military installations throughout the United States. The Oregon Plan does not interrupt the student’s educational pattern or timetable for entry into college or the civilian job market. A student, seventeen years of age or older may participate in the program during his/her junior and/or senior year. The school maintains the student on their register and counts the student as part of the average daily membership (ADM). https://www.oregon.gov/omd/programs/Documents/The%20Oregon%20Plan%20April%202024.pdf?utm_medium=email&utm_source=govdelivery

🌟 Exciting News for TEACH-NW! 🌟 We are thrilled to announce that TEACH-NW has been selected as one of only nine schools nationwide to participate in the ARISS (Amateur Radio on the International Space Station) project! This unique opportunity will allow our students to communicate directly with an astronaut aboard the International Space Station during the next school year (as early as September!), the actual date is yet to be determined and will be shared with us by ARISS. As we prepare for this incredible experience, we will be engaging in various educational lessons and projects. We will also begin gathering questions from students to be asked to the astronaut. Here’s how it will work: Question Submission: Students interested in submitting questions for the astronaut can sign up and submit their questions. Selection Process: We will need to gather 20-30 questions, but due to our 10-minute time slot with the astronaut, the final number of questions asked will depend on the length of the astronaut's answers. The questions to be asked will be selected based on a school-wide vote. Asking the Questions: The students who will have the opportunity to ask their questions directly over ham radio as the ISS passes overhead will be chosen through a lottery from among those who signed up. Stay tuned for more information as we continue to plan and prepare for this extraordinary journey into space communications. We are excited to embark on this educational adventure, and we can't wait to see the curiosity and learning it brings to our students. 🔗 Learn more about the ARISS project here: ARISS Website 📺 To see examples of past school communications with the ISS, check out the ARISS YouTube channel: ARISS YouTube If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out to Kori Dunn at kdunn@marcola.k12.or.us. A huge special thanks goes to the Wheeler family for their work in helping to bring this amazing experience to TEACH-NW! We are overjoyed to have this opportunity and look forward to the adventure ahead!

Call for your poetry To celebrate National Poetry Month, we are again inviting readers to submit original poetry, some of which we will feature in future newsletters. Last year we asked you for poetry about the pandemic, and our inbox overflowed with submissions! This time we ask you to focus on mental wellness. What does mental wellness mean to you? If you have dark days, how do you cope? To whom do you turn for help? Do others turn to you? If you are thriving, we want to know about that, too. We encourage you to explore all aspects and perspectives! Expressing yourself through poetry (and reading poetry) is a form of mental healing that humans have practiced for centuries. Revisit Poetry Promotes Mental Healing, our story about the benefits of poetry therapy. “Writing poetry can help untangle and organize your thoughts and feelings. Our emotions can feel really overwhelming, and when you start writing about what you’re experiencing you create a little bit of a safe distance.” -- Jazmin Hamilton, LMFT, board secretary for National Association of Poetry Therapy. Please submit poetry by the end of April and thank you! Submit your poetry here
