Celebration of Friendship

As we move into February, many of our kids start to think about our next opportunity for celebration. At school, we have two classroom celebrations each year, a Celebration of Friendship and a Celebration of Learning. These celebrations are intended to support our school vision of creating a culture of excellence and equity within a community of care. Our Celebration of Friendship is meant to strengthen the sense of community within the classroom/grade level. This celebration is a classroom event rather than a community event. Parents are not expected to attend, with the exception of the parent volunteers that are working with the teachers to prepare the class party details. Our Celebration of Friendship is held on the last Friday before Valentine’s Day each year, so this year it will fall on February 14th. Teachers will coordinate with parent volunteers to provide students with a celebration that includes all students and is sensitive to allergies and dietary restrictions. Watch for more information from your child’s teacher regarding this upcoming celebration.

It’s Box Top time again!

Let’s Make Money With Cans!

Do you have extra cans and bottles you need to turn in? Walmart is allowing Trillium Creek along with Rosemont, Athey Creek, Stafford, Meridian, and Cedar Oak, to turn in Cans, plastics, and glass at their West Linn location.

Drop box located at the end of the check out aisle inside the store. If you have glass, simply use the machine outside, write our school name on the paper print out, and take it to customer service.

If you don’t already, start saving your cans/plastic/glass bottles and turn them in. We get $.10 a can in return. What an easy way to make some money for our school!
