TEACHER APPRECIATION WEEK
Teacher Appreciation Week is coming May 6-10th. This is our chance to show the staff our genuine appreciation and support for all that they do for our children throughout the year. Here is what we have planned for them each day:
Monday 5/6: Coffee & Oatmeal Bar
Tuesday 5/7: Merci Flower Bouquets (made from flowers from your own backyard)
Wednesday 5/8 : NO SCHOOL (wear RED/support statewide teacher walkout)
Thursday 5/9– All Staff Lunch (Soup and Salad bar)
Friday 5/10—Cards from Students
We will be recognizing the hard work by the classroom teachers as well as the music and PE teachers, and speech specialists.
We especially need parent volunteers to help put together the merci flower bouquets and bring food donations for the all staff luncheon.
Thank you for your help! We are looking forward to showing the teachers our heartfelt appreciation. Merci!
Teacher Walkout May 8th:
FAQ for Parents/Guardians of our Students
Why are Oregon educators planning a statewide action for May 8th?
Oregon’s classrooms are overflowing, graduation rates are far too low, and schools don’t have the resources they need for enough nurses, mental health specialists, and librarians, etc. Educators are standing up for students to send a loud and clear message to the Legislature that the time is now to raise revenue for schools.
What will this action look like in 4J?
Thousands of educators across Oregon will walk out, rally, and call on lawmakers to invest in students. Schools in 4J and Bethel will be closed and educators, parents, and other community allies will rally together at specific locations in each region from 8:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m.:
4J North: Beltline intersection at River Road & Silver Lane
4J Sheldon: Coburg Road & Willakenzie
4J Churchill: 18th & Chambers
4J South: 29th & Willamette
Afterward, all are encouraged to gather in downtown Eugene for a rally at the Saturday Market Park Blocks from 11:00 – 12:00. Then all who want to join will head to the Salem and march to the Capitol.
How will my child be impacted?
School will not be in session on May 8th while educators and the community advocate for full funding. We know this will cause inconvenience for many families, but we believe that this drastic action is necessary to impact decision-makers and call attention to the crisis happening in Oregon schools. We are making this sacrifice for the long-term benefits that will come with increased revenues for schools. We know that this tactic has been effective in states from West Virginia, to Arizona, California and Washington, to name just a few.
What can I do to help?
· Attend all or part of the actions on May 8th – bring your child(ren)!
· Wear RED to show your support!!
· Talk to other parents and community members about our schools
· Email your legislator NOW: http://bit.ly/fundORschools
