"Aladdin" - The Musical is Coming Soon!

All K-8 parents, friends, and families are welcome to join our huge cast of 5th-8th grade colorful characters in Agrabah, city of mystery, land of enchantment, an oasis of rest, wonder, and magic!  Feel free to attend this exciting musical event with our entire student body, on Friday morning, April 22nd at 8:30am or that same "Arabian Night" at 7:00pm.

Neighborhood House: Final Trips!

We only have one more trip for each group to visit Neighborhood House! The first group will be volunteering on Tuesday, April 26th (the students in the group will be determined at a later date). The second group will be going on Tuesday, May 10th. Please remember that the students should wear good shoes to walk in, bring 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. It would be great if all students would bring two items to donate (one for each trip). Let me know if you have any questions and click here for more info.
