Common Core Math for Parents- Monday 6:00 – 8:00 Edison Elementary
Instead of our regular monthly meeting, the Camas Ridge PTO invites you to take a field trip with them to Edison Elementary to learn about Common Core math techniques with UO math professor, Dev Sinha. The class will focus on K-5 and address questions like, “”How can I help my child (when I don’t understand what some activities are getting at)?” Meet at the Camas Ridge Book Fair between 5pm and 6pm to carpool over to the location and to register your kid(s) for our free childcare at Camas.

From Ms. Shofner:
As some of you may have heard, one of our second grade students, Robert Simpson, has been diagnosed with leukemia. While this is sad and serious news, you will be encouraged to know that this is a very treatable illness. Robert’s physicians are confident that he will make a full recovery. He is currently receiving excellent care at Doernbecher Children’s Hospital. His family is hopeful that he will be able to return to school after treatment. 

A Go Fund Me account has been set up to support the Simpson Family. This site will allow you to donate and leave an encouraging message to help this family as they face this challenging time. Thank you in advance for the support.
