HAVE YOU PURCHASED A YEARBOOK?

If you’re not sure that you’ve purchased a yearbook yet, please email advisor, Jenn Kotlarek (kotlarek@4j.lane.edu), before purchasing another to avoid duplicate entries.  As of today we have just over 50 left for sale. Thanks for supporting our yearbook.

GARDEN PARTY

On February 17th Spencer Butte Middle School is hosting a big garden party from 11am to 1pm! All families are welcome! We used to have a fresh garden many years ago. The food would go into the cafeteria so all the students could eat! Many of the students want to bring that back but need help doing it! If anybody could bring shovels or hoes to use for the day that would be greatly appreciated! Also, if you have any gardening tools that you don’t use, we will gladly accept it! We will be putting in soil, beds, and planting seeds, so wear clothes you don’t mind getting dirty. Pizza will be provided for lunch! Hope to see you there!
