Dear Awbrey Park Families,
Please come and join us for The Big 50 on Thursday.  Students will be performing during the times listed below.  It is very casual and we will do an all-call over the intercom for each grade level.  Whomever shows up will perform.  We will have student poetry and family photographs in the main school building.  We will have food and musical performances in the gym and cafeteria.


Reminder that we have a no school day on Friday, January 27.  This is an Academy Day where we will be doing professional development on math instruction.  We will also be working on school-wide AVID skills.  We are trying to improve students’ ability to use higher level thinking skills.  Again, we have three Academy Days throughout the year (the last one is March 10) because our school day is longer than normal so that we can improve our instruction.


School Choice Season is here–This is where families can check out schools in the district. Awbrey Park will hold its School Choice tours on January 23 from 6-7 pm and on February 22 from 12-1 pm. If these times don’t work, please contact the office. If you have a neighbor or friend who is interested in attending Awbrey Park next year, please let them know about our upcoming tours.

Also, if you moved out of our attendance area and want to continue to attend Awbrey Park, you must fill out the School Choice form. It is critical that you do so.

Come see what our schools offer!

In Eugene School District 4J, every school offers an excellent education for our students. Students may enroll in their neighborhood school at any time, or request enrollment in a different 4J school, provided there is a place available. Requests will be accepted in an order determined by lottery. To be included in the lottery, 4J residents must apply between Tuesday, January 3 and Tuesday, February 28 at 5 p.m. Non-district residents must apply between Wednesday, March 1 and Saturday, April 1 at 5 p.m.

If you have any friends or family members who are considering school choice, please invite them to come learn more about our school and their school choice options!
