Dear Awbrey Park Families,
Melissa Davies, a long time Awbrey Park staff member, passed away from cancer on April 9.  There will be a memorial service at Awbrey Park at 2:30 on Saturday, May 21.  The Awbrey Park community is welcome to come and celebrate Melissa’s life.  Melissa was a classroom teacher for many years and then our Title One coordinator/teacher.  She took a leave of absence from Awbrey two years ago.  She made a tremendous impact in the lives of students, families, and staff.  Melissa was extremely caring and always positive.  She was a model educator and a master at developing relationships with students.  We were so fortunate to have her as part of the Awbrey Park family.  She will be greatly missed.

The Book Fair is here this week.  Our Buy One, Get One Free Book Fair is a reading event that brings books to our school.  So if you buy one, you get a second one for free.  Check out the Family Night on Thursday from 6:00-7:30 pm

Tuesday–8:00-8:30 am and 2:30-3:30 pm

Volunteer Reception on May 24 from 1:30-2:30.  This is our opportunity to thank all of our wonderful volunteers that make such a difference in our school.  Our staff is providing desert!  We will have music entertainment at 2:00.  Thanks so much for being a part of our school and impacting the lives of all of our students.

A special thanks to all of our SMART volunteers.  They have been working countless hours with our 1st graders and Kinders reading with them each week.  They run an outstanding program enhancing the love of reading.  Our SMART volunteers are awesome!

There is no school on May 27, which is an Awbrey Park Academy Day.  We will be working on setting reading objectives and improving student engagement.  There is no school on Memorial Day, May 30.

Your student has been challenged by Sluggo and the Eugene Emeralds to take part in Sluggo’s Home Run Reading Program for the chance at receiving TWO FREE TICKETS to an Emeralds game this summer!

With your support and motivation, your student can hit a home run in reading today! If your student completes his or her 10-task goal (either 10 books or 10 chapters, decided by their teacher) he or she will receive two (2) free tickets good for one Eugene Emeralds baseball game on the following Home Run Reading dates: June 19th at 5:01 p.m., June 26th at 5:01 p.m., June 27th at 7:05 pm, July 10th at 7:35 p.m. or July 11th at 7:05 p.m.!

Students will get a Reading Program bookmark from their class on Monday; the student can track his or her progress on the back of the bookmark. Once completed, the student must turn the bookmark into the teacher to receive the free tickets. Students have until Friday, April 29 to turn in their bookmark. The tickets will be sent home with the student the beginning of June.

In addition to attending the game, students who complete the program will be encouraged to arrive early for the opportunity to go down onto PK Field and meet an Emeralds player! More information on how to participate in this special event will come once the students receive their voucher.

The Eugene Emeralds are the Class-A Short-Season affiliate of the Chicago Cubs and take great pride in supporting the surrounding Eugene/Springfield community. We are proud advocates of reading and wish the best to your student in their journey to become a Home Run Reader.

For general questions, please contact Anne Culhane with the Eugene Emeralds at anne@emeraldsbaseball.com or 541-342-5367. Your student’s teacher can answer any goal-related questions.
