Winners of the Essays entitled "What We're Made Of"
Winners of the Honoring Our Rivers Student Artwork
This year, over 1,000 students entered their artwork, writing, and poetry celebrating Oregon Watersheds. Less than 300 students submissions were selected for publication in the all-color book, and three of the winners are from Myers! Their work will be published in the 2015 edition, plus they are also invited to present their works at Riverfront Park in Salem on Sat., April 11th, as part of the Earth 911 event, and at Powell's Books in Portland on Sun., may 17th at 4 pm.
Ms. Brenner and Ms. Madison took a nature writing workshop last summer and provided this opportunity for their students to participate. You can view past and present student works at Honoring Our Rivers. This year's publication should be available by the end of April. The project is sponsored by Willamette Partnership, Eugene Water & Electric Board, Port of Portland, Wildwood-Mahonia, and a host of other organizations and businesses.
Testing and the new Smarter Balanced Assessments will be here before we know it. Here's the link to the practice test for your information and review.

Please Protect Our Children.
Recently several students have stepped in dog feces while on recess and subsequently tracked it back into classrooms and on play equipment. If you frequent the school with your animals, please consider the safety and well-being of our children, and use the refuse bags provided to pick-up after your pets. Thank you for being a caring neighbor.
