Dear Awbrey Park Families,

The sunshine is here!  We love getting our kids outside and playing during recess.  Please remember to put sunscreen on your child so that they don’t burn.

We had a very sweet PRIDE Assembly on last Thursday.  We discussed with students that like every school, we have bullying.  We discussed that everyone is a Bully Buster.  This means that if students see someone bullying or being mean to another student, they should use their words and tell them to stop.  We use Stop, Walk, and Talk.  Students should tell someone to stop in an assertive, but nice way.  They should then Walk away and get distance.  Students should Talk to adults if it is something serious.  

We also introduced our new Buddy Bench.  It is in honor of Melissa Davies.  Melissa taught here for 25 years, but passed away last year from cancer.  It is a beautiful bench that was donated by the 20/30 Club of Eugene.  Melissa still helps kids finds friends to this day!

We will have our Kingston Reader Assembly on June 9 at 10:15.  Students who have met their reading requirements will get a medal to spotlight their hard work.  The more you read, the smarter you get!

Parents Night out at The Filling Station (2747 River Rd).  The Filling Station is partnering with the Awbrey Park PTO for one last fundraiser to close out our awesome school year! The Filling Station will donate $1 for every pint ordered all day Wednesday May 24th, 2017. The Filling Station is open that day from 2pm to 8pm.  From 5pm to 8pm that day the Awbrey Park PTO will be hosting food along with door prizes for those that attend. We couldn’t make our events work without our parent volunteers. So we’d like to say thanks! Also be sure to like the Awbrey Park PTO on Facebook and RSVP to the Parents Night Out event so we can have enough food for everyone.

Our parking lot is a challenge.  As we talked before, the school was built when students rode their bikes or walked to school.  Please be careful moving in and out of our parking lot.  We appreciate everyone’s calmness and courtesy to other drivers as they navigate around Awbrey Park.
