Google Doodle Today: Dr. Jonas Salk

October 28, 2014

NewImage

From time to time, Google uses their doodle, the graphic on their front page, to highlight a person of note. Today Google celebrated the 100th anniversary of the birth of Dr. Jonas Salk, a pioneer in the development of a vaccine to prevent polio. For those of us of certain age, we can remember friends and family members that suffered from polio before the advent of a vaccine. 

“Dr. Jonas Salk himself was a humble man and never patented the vaccine, forgoing an immeasurable fortune. When asked who owned the patent, Salk said it was the people that owned it, adding,”Could you patent the sun?” “

Happy 100th, Dr. Jonas Salk!

You can learn more about the creation of the doodle by following the link below.

Lewis Singing Club

October 27, 2014

Do you love to sing? Would you like to spend time with others who love to sing, too? Well, the place for you to be is in Room 24 at 7:45 each Tuesday morning starting Nov. 18. That’s the day the Lewis Singing Club starts up.

The Lewis Singing Club is open to all 4th and 5th graders who are interested in having fun, learning new songs, singing their hearts out, and maybe performing for others.

We will be doing mostly unison singing where everybody sings the same melody, but as we get better and more confident, we’ll throw in some rounds and harmony.

You’ll need permission from home to participate and be able to commit to coming to all practices on Tuesday mornings ready to sing.

Have your parents go to goo.gl/tou32x and fill out the form by Friday, Nov. 7. That’s it!

Earthquake Drill Today

October 16, 2014

Today we conducted an earthquake drill as part of the statewide Great Oregon Shakeout. Students and staff practiced safety procedures, reviewing the Drop, Cover, Hold On procedure and then practicing a building evacuation. The drill went smoothly and the students and staff responded extremely well to the whole event. We will conduct another earthquake drill later in the school year. 

Emergency Contact Information: Drills such as this are a good time to remind families to be sure that your contact and emergency contact information is up to date. If you have changed phone numbers, or if the list of people who can pick up your child in the case of an emergency has changed, please be sure to contact the school office ( 503 916 6360 ) and we will be glad to update our records.
