Dear North Plains Families,

It's hard to believe July is almost over and school will begin in just over a month!  I'm happy to report that I'm safely home after my trip to Uganda, Africa.  It was a wonderful experience and I have a lot to share with anyone who is interested in hearing!  I'm also hoping to teach our students about the Acholi culture including a bit of the language.  Hopefully some students and even classrooms will be interested in corresponding with the children at the village.


Back to school related things:)  Please note that we are beginning the year a bit differently this year.  There will be an informal "picnic with the principal" on Aug. 25th at 6:00 PM.  This is an opportunity for us to meet and hopefully get to know each other a bit before the school year begins.  Please bring a picnic dinner for you and your family who attend and I will supply soda and water.  If you are unable to attend, please do not be concerned as  there will be multiple additional opportunities to visit.


Back to School Night, or curriculum night as some of you may know it, will be on Sept. 15th at 6:00 PM.  This will be the opportunity to meet your child's teacher and hear what the plans are for the year.  As for school supplies, your child may bring them on the first day, or you may drop them off any time during the first week of school.  


I'm definitely looking forward to meeting each of you and to get to know your children.  North Plains is an exceptional school with a dedicated staff and actively involved parent community and I'm anxious to truly become a part of the team.  If you need to contact me at any time, please do send me an email at, or call the office at 503-844-3350.  Keep in mind that the office doesn't open until Aug 18, so I may not get a phone message until then.


The Garlic Festival is coming up and the NP Chamber of Commerce has graciously opened up a space in their booth for me to join them.  I will be there handing out enrollment forms to new families and hopefully greeting many of you as well.  Speaking of enrollment, if you know people who have moved in and have not yet enrolled their child(ren), please let them know to stop by the school on or after Aug. 18 to get the enrollment forms, or stop and see me at the Garlic Festival!


Enjoy the rest of your summer and I look forward to seeing you soon!
