Weekly Message

Dear Raleigh Hills Community,

We made it through the first week of our new adventure! We hope that you and your family are getting into a great routine and settling into this new way of doing school. We have been so excited to see your children on Zoom. We've missed them dearly and honestly cannot wait to welcome them back in person when it's safe.

I just want to commend you for how well you've been doing! Getting going with school this year has been a lot and we want to acknowledge all the hard work that you've been doing to get the year started off for your students. We have additional supply kits available at the school. If you need one, or if we can assist you in other ways, don't hesitate to call us at 503 356-2160. We are glad to be able to partner with you this year! Have a great weekend and get some rest. You've earned it!

We will be hosting our Back to School Night with the principal on Thursday night. As with so much this year, it will be a little different. Since you've had an opportunity to meet with your teachers on Zoom, this meeting will be hosted on YouTube and will be an opportunity to meet the principal, learn more about our staff this year and find out about the workshop model, and how to get connected with library books in person and online. We hope to see you all there. More information is included below!

With anticipation,


Back to School Night
