School Directories are here!

Please check your children’s folders to find this year’s school directory.  We are sending home one directory per household.  There are extra copies in the office.  We are looking for a parent to coordinate the directory for next year.  This is a volunteer opportunity that can work from home and there are plenty of parents available to help put it together.  Please contact the office if you are interested.

Knit Wits

Help out with the Knit Wits!  Wednesdays from 1:45-3:30

Our Knitting Club needs another volunteer.  Our amazing D1 resident Grandma, Mara would appreciate another set of adult hands to join our Knit Wit group. You do not need to know how to knit to join in the fun. The kids can teach you. Mara and the 9 knitting members have busy hands and fingers and simply want another adult to assist with logistics and general group support. Our group meets every Wednesday from 1:45 – 3:30. Please let Tina Leaton in D1 know if you are interested.

Immunizations

The two Eugene School based Health Centers, located at Churchill and North Eugene High Schools, are open and ready to give immunizations to all children who are lacking immunizations. They are ready to schedule children who participate in public health insurance programs, or have private insurance, or are uninsured. The appointments can be made at: Churchill, tel. 541-790-5227, Claire Bierman is the Health Assistant, North Eugene, tel. 541-790-4445, Kathleen Ybanez is the Health Assistant. The clinics would like to vaccinate as many as possible prior to exclusion day on February 21, 2018. The Churchill Clinic will be open on Monday, February 19 all day, even though it is a school district holiday, and parents/children are welcome. On exclusion day–Wednesday, February 21, Peacehealth will have several persons to help with the immunizations at the North Eugene SBHC so that children can return to school quickly.

Academic Achievement Center (AAC)

The Academic Achievement Center (AAC) is excited about the possibility of adding Edgewood Community Elementary School to our pick up service for the STEM Shuttle! We want to see what the interest level is now and see if there is enough interest in an Edgewood pickup. We hope to start picking up after school at Edgewood on Tuesday and/or Thursdays. If you’d like more information on the program you can go to https://www.eugeneaac.com/aac-shuttle or call the AAC at 541-654-4999. Space on the shuttle is limited to 10 students per day. There currently is not an option for Edgewood on the registration page, so please email the AAC at mike@eugeneaac.com and indicate if you’d like Tuesdays, Thursdays, or both Tuesdays and Thursdays. The cost would be $30/day and scholarships are available.
