Career Day at EGMS
On Thursday we had over 30 guests from around our community come to school to talk about their careers. Students signed up for the top three they were interested in hearing about. It was so much fun! Be sure to ask your student who they visited and what they liked best about that career! Jump on to social media to see more photos of this awesome day!
Summer Camps in Oregon
Thank you to everyone who as reached out to volunteer for this! We will be reaching out this month with the date for our first meeting. Go Huskies!
Nurse Grubb's Corner
There are so many great alternatives to phones that have the internet and social media. Here are some examples of phones that look like smart phones but only allows kids to make calls, text, take photos and use a calculator. We know that if students don't have access to social media, the level of drama they experience goes down dramatically. Check it out!
Students who have ZERO absences for an entire week will be entered into a drawing to win a donut the following Monday! There will be one winner per grade, per river team! A DOZEN winners each monday! Yummy! You can do this Huskies!

HIGH SCHOOL SPORTING EVENTS
Parents and guardians of middle school students who wish to attend high school athletic contests:
Middle school students attending high school games must attend with an adult. Middle school students need to sit in the stands during games. High schools do not have the staffing to supervise middle school students. Just like all Bend/LaPine high schools, Redmond high schools believe that middle school students can successfully achieve this goal. However, in the event that middle school students cannot stay in the stands, they will be required to sit with the adult who brought them to the game or be required to leave. Please help your student enjoy the game by monitoring them while on high school property.
