Parkdale Elementary Weekly Update

All Staff Info...

This Week...

It's Carnival Time! I can't believe we are to the middle of March already. Should be a fun and busy week getting ready for the big event on Friday.

State Budget Update

The issue of our state budget and education funding have been a huge topic of conversation recently at dinner tables, school board meetings, and around the state. Dan Goldman, community members, as well as school board members have been active in writing and meeting with state legislators in an attempt to convey what a budget like what is currently proposed would mean for Oregon and, specifically, Hood River County Schools.


Currently it is feared that the state budget will land at $7.235b. This could result in a shortfall for our district of up to one million dollars. Dan is asking that we share our concern over this with some key legislators. Here are contacts if you wish to send an email describing the current state of things and what further cuts would mean.
