Winners of the Essays entitled "What We're Made Of"

Students in all four of our 4th grades and 4th/5th grade classes submitted essays for AgFest. The prizes? Each classroom wins an all-expense paid field trip to the Oregon AgFest on April 24th.

                        Winners of the Honoring Our Rivers Student Artwork


Honoring Our Rivers was founded in 2000 by a group of educators and river enthusiasts in Salem to provide literary, art, and place-based conservation resources to students around the state and to facilitate transformational outdoor learning experiences.  It is the only statewide anthology of student writing and artwork that is uniquely focused on rivers and watershed and targets artistic, educational, and environmental goals simultaneously.

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.

Coming to Myers !

On Tuesday, Nov. 17, Myers Elementary K – 5th grade students, staff, and parents will have the opportunity to spend time with children’s advocate and award-winning author Trudy Ludwig. Trudy has been featured in U.S. national media outlets including ABC’s “Good Morning America,” PBS’s nationally syndicated show, “Keeping Kids Healthy,” Wall Street Journal, the National Crime Prevention Council’s Circle of Respect program.

 During the school day, Ludwig’s student assemblies will be broken down in grade clusters (K- grade 2 and grades 3-5), so that she can address this topic in an age-appropriate manner.

 ATTN PARENTS: On the evening of Nov. 17, you are invited to attend Trudy’s special parent presentation: “Understanding Our Kids’ Online & Offline Social World: Friendships, Cliques & Power Plays.” More information to come later
