PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE Thank you, parents, for being so supportive of our teachers this week!! Thank you for being so patient as we worked out the technology issues. Thank you for trusting us with your child or children’s learning. Our teachers work so hard in preparation for this week by learning all the new online teaching platforms and how to teach their lessons virtually. Just being with their students this week was well worth the effort. They fell in love your children and were giddy with excitement. They had a good week. We hope you did too! Coming Week: We have begun our Fall Assessments. The results of the assessment are very valuable to the teachers so they can adjust their lessons to cover the material that the students need to know. It also helps them put their students in the proper reading and math levels. During the assessment period, please encourage your child to do their best and not to worry about problems they do not know. They will see material that is foreign to them. It is ok that they do not know it. Avoid the urge to assist your child with the assessments. I encourage our families to call us at 541.663.3501 if you have any suggestions, questions, or concerns as we navigate through our first year of distance learning. Together we can make this a positive learning experience for our students.

Major thanks to everyone who has donated to the Albertsons and Safeway Help Feed Families During the Crisis fundraiser, part of their Nourishing Neighbors Community Relief Initiative. Island City Elementary School, Central Elementary School and Greenwood Elementary School were all fortunate to receive a generous grant from the campaign through Albertsons and Safeway Foundation. Each school received $3,000 and every penny of the $3,000 grant will be used to help make sure the COVID-19 crisis isn’t a food crisis for our kids or a financial crisis for our schools' food service programs. Times are hard, help from folks like those at Albertsons and Safeway are making them a little easier.
All kids 18 and under eat free under a Seamless Summer Option! La Grande School District will be providing meals for children under the age of 18. Lunch can be picked up at any of our elementary schools from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm.
