Newsletter 10/24/2018

Dear Awbrey Park Families,
Thank you so much for your support during the Jog-A-Thon!  Our kids were amazing!  They were non-stop movers.  Collectively, we ran 1058 miles.  That means we could have run to Disneyland with plenty of miles to run to every major amusement park in the area!  Thanks to our Parents/Guardians/Families–we raised almost $14,000.  This pays for our field trips, technology apps, assemblies, and so much more.  I am so lucky that I get to dress up like a chicken on Friday.  I am not sure how this started–students plotting with staff of how ridiculous to make me look if we reached our goal.  On Friday, I will be shaking my feathers in appreciation of the support from our families.  Thank you so much for making a difference at Awbrey Park.
We have Movie Night this Friday from 6:00-7:30.  We will be watching Transylvania 3.  The event is free.  We will have free popcorn.  Since it is an optional activity, students can wear costumes or their jammies.  Costumes can’t have weapons or be too scary for elementary students.  Students can also bring a stuffed toy to cuddle with.  We will have mats out for families, but they get crowded.  If you have a pad, you might be more comfortable.  We will also have chairs around the wall of the gym.
You can order Awbrey T-shirts and sweatshirts.  The order form is attached to the newsletter.  We sell these at costs so that we can spread the Awbrey spirit.  Orders are due by November 8.

On Wednesday, October 31, students can dress up in their spirit gear.  This means they can wear their favorite team gear–Awbrey, Oregon Ducks, Oregon State Beavers, Seahawks, etc.  Any gear that shows spirit.  Students won’t be wearing costumes since this is happening during the school day.

Our conferences are coming up.  These are a great chance for our families and staff to connect to really support our kiddos.

November 7– Conferences 4:00-8:00pm (We have regular school on that day)

November 8 – NO SCHOOL Conferences 8:00am -8:00pm

November 9 – NO SCHOOL Conference Compensation Day

November 12 – NO SCHOOL Veteran’s Day

Our school is full of spirit! We will have our annual Awbrey Park Tailgater on November 21 in honor of the Oregon-Oregon State Football game later that week. Parents/Guardians are invited to come and eat lunch with kids. We will set it up like a real tailgater with all of us eating outside. We will be under cover in case the weather isn’t wonderful—but it never rains at Autzen Stadium or Awbrey Park!


The Sanipac Duck Truck will be here rocking “The Park.” This is a tricked out garbage truck that looks like a limousine inside, with a barbecue, and great music. It is painted in Duck colors. The truck is in pristine condition. We will have special lunches on that day. Students will eat and then play tailgating games. It will be awesome!
