Sunset Food Drive!!!!
Sunset’s Fifth graders are putting together a food drive! You can bring in cans starting on November 26. If every student brings in 5 cans, we will be able to donate over 1,500 cans to help feed the families of West Linn. You do not have to donate cans, you can also donate Mac and Cheese, hair brushes, toothpaste, or even Peanut Butter. But remember no glass because it could hurt someone if it breaks. Let’s work together to feed the families of West Linn.

Outdoor recess is almost always an option for students, even in the rain! Please remember to send your child to school with a raincoat/jacket and appropriate footwear everyday.
Please keep in mind the importance of labeling your student's belongings with his/her name so that these items can be returned should they end up in our Lost and Found!

Next Week is Computer Science Education Week: Hour of Code
Hour of Code activities can be found at https://hourofcode.com/us/learn. Veterans of the school district are surely familiar with the Hour of Code and the plethora of fun and productive activities involved.
Hour of Code activities are so valuable to open students' eyes to the possibilities that are out there in the world of Computer Science and Technology. And, that world is continuing to expand rapidly. Our students will live in a technology-rich environment of connectivity that could provide the framework to their very livelihood and enriched life.
Winter Weather is Coming - Time to Update Your FlashAlert Subscriptions
Join us for a Future High School Possibilities Community Forum
As our School Board contemplates its Board Goal No. 4, and the possibility of a Capital Bond in the near future, the planning for future high school learning spaces is set to begin. Last year, our superintendent held a year-long High School Study, examining current and future programs and possibilities.
Combined with recent 10-year enrollment projections, and learning space capacity calculations created by the Long Range Planning Committee, the Board has signaled that it's time to begin planning for future high school learning spaces. Two Community Forums will be held in December, inviting community members to learn about possibilities for future high school learning spaces and provide input.
Both Community Forums are exactly the same. Patrons may attend whichever forum is more convenient. Boundary adjustments will NOT be a topic at these forums, as future high school possibilities are not expected to impact existing boundaries.
Dec. 4 — The district will hold the first Future High School Possibilities Community Forum on Dec. 4 starting at 6 p.m. in the Rosemont Ridge Middle School commons.
Dec. 5 — The district will hold the second Future High School Possibilities Community Forums on Dec. 5 starting at 6 p.m. in the Meridian Creek Middle School commons.
Safety Spotlight: Nutrition Services
Safety is our school district’s top priority, and that includes the health of our students. Nutrition Services is a pivotal part of the West Linn-Wilsonville School District, ensuring students receive the proper fuel and nutrition to maximize their learning in the classroom.
The district offers lunch at all 16 WLWV schools as well as breakfast at most schools. Food is made from wholesome, whole grain, low fat and low sodium ingredients, and fruits and vegetables are offered daily. The Nutrition Services Department works hard to serve as much locally-grown food as possible, and student feedback is always encouraged to improve lunch and breakfast menus. Meal assistance is also available for eligible families. Visit the Oregon Department of Education’s website to apply.
Community members have also likely seen the recent romaine lettuce recall in the news. The Nutrition Services Department remains up-to-date and informed any time there is any type of food recall. In this case, there was no official recall from the district’s food distributor, but the district will not serve any romaine lettuce for the foreseeable future in an abundance of caution. Other nutritious vegetable and food options will be served in its place.
For more information about the Nutrition Services Department, visit the district website.
