Dear Awbrey Park Families,
I hope you had a great Winter Break.  We miss your kids.  We are very excited to get them back.  We can’t wait to see them tomorrow!  We are going to kick off the new year with a PBIS assembly on Friday, January 5.  Iton Udosenata, the North Eugene High School Principal, will give a short talk about overcoming adversity.  This will kick off the “My Two Hands” projects that our students will be working on.  The point of the project is that there is so much that each of us can do with our own “two hands.”  We want our students to feel empowered that they can make a difference in their own life and in the lives of others.  This will kick off our “My two Hands” project that the students will complete for Cultural Night on January 25.  That is our night of music, food, dance, and song to build our school community.
PTO is meeting Tuesday, January 9 at 6:00.  This is a great group of parents/guardians who give guidance and support to our school.

School Choice is the transfer process where families can consider different schools for the 2018-2019 school year.  Students can attend their home school such as Awbrey Park or look to attend other schools in the district.  If you live in our attendance area and want to attend Awbrey Park, you don’t need to apply.  If you are attending Awbrey on a boundary waiver, you also do not need to apply again.  If you are attending Awbrey this year, but have moved out of our school boundaries, you do need to apply.  If you live out of our boundary area and have a kinder for next year, you will also need to apply for the kinder.  If you have any questions, please contact our office.
