On Friday evening the Lewis Drama Club production of “We Open Tomorrow Night???” opened with an evening performance, followed Saturday by a matinee performance. We are so proud of our actors, musicians, and technical crew that have been working for several months in anticipation of these shows. The students did an outstanding job, and put on a  very funny and entertaining show. 

We would like to acknowledge their hard work, and the hard work of our many parent volunteers who worked with sets, costumes, and coaching. Finally a very big thank you to Michael Wehrli, and his assistant Marina Harrington, for leading the direction of the the show, to Mr. Jamesbarry, for his work with the music and the orchestra, and to Mr. Colvin for his production work with ticketing and show logistics. 

Mr. Colvin took quite a few pictures of both the rehearsals and the productions. You can find his photos at the link below.

Garden and Art Fair - Saturday May 3rd
The Garden Fair is only 25 days away and the PTA needs your help to make it a success!!  These big fundraisers need lots of volunteers to make them work and volunteering is a GREAT way to get to know other parents.  Please sign up for a two-hour slot and help the PTA raise the money that we need to pay for the programs that benefit all the students at Lewis and make new friends!  The sign up sheets are posted outside Tracy’s office, on the PTA bulletin board outside the dip, and at the other school entrances/exits.  

We also have a SignUpGenius for those of you who can’t make it in to school.  The address is:  http://goo.gl/xOXSCK

Are you an artist or a crafter?  Could you donate something you’ve created to the Lewis Family Table at the Garden and Art Fair?  All proceeds from the Lewis Family Table will support the programs that the PTA provides for all of our Lewis students!  Please drop the donations off at the office by 5/2/2014.  Thanks!  If you have questions, contact Shawn at msjaquiss@me.com

Back to School…

March 31, 2014

It was great today to be able to welcome back to school our students after our spring break. I had the opportunity to visit with most classrooms today and it was great to see so many smiling faces and engaged students, as I traveled around the building.

This afternoon I had the opportunity to visit with Ms. Camile’s students as they worked with Ms. Kathleen in the garden beds outside their classroom. Our kindergarten students are growing peas, onions, lettuce, and carrots in their raised beds. I’m looking forward to later in the spring when we will be able to enjoy a garden salad from our garden beds.

Staff Picks: Favorite Books

Throughout the year we will be highlighting favorite books selected by our staff members...

Title: Charlotte’s Web Author: E.B. White Staff Member: Mr. Colvin

Multnomah Country Library Link

"Before the movie, before the cartoon, was the book. The book and I are about the same age, having both arrived in the early 1950s. I was in fourth grade in Mrs. Stansell's class in Gold Beach, Oregon and she read several novels during the year, but the one that hooked me was Charlotte's Web. I have read it to every class I have ever taught since I started teaching. Plus I read it to my own two kids when they were around 9 or 10.
