Neighborhood House

The second group will be going to Neighborhood House this Tuesday. Please remember that the students should wear good shoes to walk in, a rain jacket in case it rains on our 15 minute walk to Multnomah Village, and clothes they don't mind getting dirty when we are there volunteering. Let me know if you have any questions and click here for more info.

Field Trip: Oregon Symphony

We have a great trip to the Schnitz coming up on March 3rd to hear wonderful music. I remember it being very full of students from other schools as well as our own. We will be taking the bus downtown from 8:45-11am, so please let me know if you won't be able to make it. I would suggest walkable and comfortable shoes. Please let me know if you have any questions.
