A Message From Mrs. Donegan
Dear Trillium Community,
It seems amazing to think that when we see you all again it will be December! We have had a wonderful fall. We have enjoyed a season of beautiful weather. Our kids have embraced a new school year and are investing themselves in being the best community members and learners that they can be. Our school community has enjoyed several fun gatherings together.
As you head out to enjoy time with family and friends this coming week, I want to express my gratitude to you. Thank you parents and families for working together with us. Thank you to our PTA for the countless hours that you dedicate to strengthening our school. Thank you to our community for believing in and investing in our schools. It is an honor to be part of such a caring community.

Safety Spotlight — Digital Citizenship
This week’s Digital Citizenship Theme of the Month is Relationships and Communication. Internet communication includes a large variety of platforms, including email, social media, instant messaging, video messaging, and many others. While internet communications can foster, enhance, and strengthen positive relationships, it also opens the door for potentially unsafe interactions as well as cyberbullying. Please read more about this month’s digital citizenship theme of the month on the district website.
Education Foundation to Host 6th Annual Night with the Portland Trail Blazers!
The West Linn-Wilsonville Education Foundation is excited to announce the 6th Annual WLWV Education Foundation’s “Night with the Portland Trail Blazers"!
You won’t want to miss out on a fun evening with friends and family as our Portland Trail Blazers take on the Detroit Pistons at the Moda Center on February 23, 2020.
As in years past, ticket holders will have the opportunity to participate in at least one experience. First, all ticket holders who purchase through the West Linn-Wilsonville Education Foundation link will have the opportunity to go onto the court after the game and shoot a free throw. This has been a very popular activity over the past five years. Second, any tickets purchased for children between the ages of 6 and 13 will be entered into a drawing to participate in the pre-game Courtside Kids experience.
Ticket Sales will open in December — stay tuned! For any questions please contact Michele Beyer at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Winter Weather is Coming - Time to Update Your FlashAlert Subscriptions

The system is routinely pruned of untouched accounts so even if you had previously subscribed, you should verify your subscriptions at https://www.flashalert.net/login.html. Please note that this is not "our" system and we can provide limited help. You should consider getting the free FlashAlert Messenger app from the Apple AppStore or Google PlayStore. Announcements will also be displayed on the local TV channels. During an event, we will also post an announcement on the district home page (www.wlwv.k12.or.us).
