District # 35 Happenings

The weather is dry and warm, but fall is here. We are already more than a month into the school year. Homecoming activities are on the horizon, so get ready for a busy month around the District.

No school for students Friday October 14, 2022 due to state In-service day.

School Bond Informational Meeting:

  • Ballot measure 15-208 is officially appearing on this fall's ballots for voters living in the Rogue River School District. This is the measure asking voters to approve a $4 million dollar bond for school improvements that would be matched with another $4 million dollars by the state of Oregon.

  • We have one more informational bond meeting scheduled for October 17th. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the bond proposal voters will see on the ballot. If you have questions or just want to learn more about ballot measure 15-208, please show up at the JSHS library at 6:00 p.m. on October 17th.

  • Pattie McKinney: Her work with the origami group at SVA has been very successful. She pays attention to what interests students, and then finds ways to make it a reality.

  • Tabitha Badley, Kaylie Woller, Wendy Barnwell, Kelsey Casey, and Derek Nelson: Each of these classified employees have stepped up in a big way for our schools by getting emergency substitute teaching licenses. Because of them, we have been better able to provide quality substitutes when our teachers are out.

  • Tracy Borja, Jessa Fricke, and Jill Westlake: These three are getting kudos for taking our 6th grade class to Pacifica Outdoor School. This is a two night stay that they help support and coordinate providing a wonderful learning opportunity for our students.

  • Angie Caschera and Ashtyn James: Ashtyn and Angie support the elementary staff and students in a multitude of impressive ways. Their calm energy helps create such a positive atmosphere for our school.
