SPENCER BUTTE SPARTAN UPDATE

MATERIAL COLLECTION, MARK YOUR CALENDARS

During the week of June 8th we will be arranging times for families to drop off iPads, Library Books, Math Books, Instruments and any other school belongings. We will get this schedule to you as soon as possible.  In the meantime, please start gathering items that need to be returned.

8TH GRADE PROMOTION

Because of the continuing guidelines regarding social distancing, our 8th Grade Promotion activities will be completely different this year. That said, we do want to recognize your progress in middle school and your passage on to high school.

Our plan is to invite students and their families on June 9th to drive/walk to Spencer Butte to receive their certificate, get a promotion program and a special tee-shirt that is just for this year’s 8th grade students, and have the opportunity to take pictures in a few different locations that will have specialty back-drops.

The only way we can accomplish this is to spread students/families out through a 3 or 4 hour time period. We have created an alphabetical schedule to regulate the flow of students (linked below). If your family is unable to come during the scheduled time, please send us schedule requests on the form below. To the degree that it is physically possible, we will honor all requests.

So, if you are an eighth grade family and you are interested in attending our promotion, please fill out this form indicating your availability and interest and requesting an alternate time as needed.

FAMILY FOOD SUPPORT

If your family would benefit from food support now and through the summer, please contact Heather Acharya (acharya_h@4j.lane.edu) or Margaret Albright (albright_m@4j.lane.edu).  This information is kept extremely confidential; we want to make sure that our families are taken care of before summer break.
