Free Dental Screenings for Children Age Seven and Younger

Dear Parent/Guardian: We will have free dental screenings by local Dentist Dr. JJ Bittner and/or Dr. Kendra Flann at Middleton Elementary on February 24th, for children age seven or younger who have not been to a dentist. This is a screening only and no treatment will be given. You may already have turned in a form to your school to say that your child has been to a dentist, or that the screening is against your family’s beliefs -- if so, your child will not be screened. If your child is screened, results will be sent to you in backpack mail and also go into the student file. If you wish to opt-out of the screening, please contact your school office.


For more information about the screening call Health Services at 503-825-5088. Good dental care contributes to the overall good health of our students!

Character Trait of the Month

January's Character Trait is Responsibility. Being responsible means being dependable, making good choices, and taking accountability for your actions. A responsible person looks out for the well-being of others and understands we have a party to play in making the world a better place. What a great time of year to start fresh with new goals of being more responsible. Teach your kids ways they can be responsible in your home, school, and our community. If you need ideas to teach responsibility with books to read, family activities, or community events let PAC Volunteer coordinator Melissa Horton know. gmpschorton@gmail.com

Volunteering

There are many opportunities to volunteer at Middleton. All volunteers will need to a) complete a background check and b) submit a proof of vaccination or receive approval for a vaccination exception.

School Board Recognition Month

The Sherwood School District is joining Oregon's other 196 school districts in celebrating January as "School Board Recognition Month." As volunteers, our school board members spend countless hours year-round working to serve the students, staff, parents, and community members of Sherwood, with a focus on providing the best possible education opportunities for K-12 learners in our district. Please join us in thanking our Board of Directors for their dedication and service to our schools!
