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.
Today we held our annual Run for the Arts. Students have been collecting pledges and today they ran to raise funds for our arts programs. We had a great number of parent, grandparent, and community volunteers to help with our event. We thank them for their support and we thank our students and teachers for their efforts today.

OBOB MEETING THURSDAY OCTOBER 16th
Are you in 3-5th grade? Do you love to read great books? Do you enjoy competition? Do you love to spend time with your friends? It just might be that OBOB (Oregon Battle of the Books) is a perfect opportunity for you! If you want to find out more, please attend an OBOB informational meeting on Thursday October 16 at 3:15. Parents are encouraged to attend, as well as interested 3-5th grade students. In the mean time, gather together a team of eager readers that would love to take part. Each team will need 4 teammates and 1 alternate, so that is 5 participants altogether! Teams do not need to be made up of the same grade level, but do need to be in either 3rd, 4th, or 5th grade! I hope to see you at the meeting. If you have any questions, please contact Sarah Kohn at firstname.lastname@example.org, or 503-916-6360, you may also find out more information about OBOB at oboblsta.pbworks.com
We are gearing up for another great year of Run for the Arts here at Lewis! Please read the information on the Run for the Arts Sponsor Sheet that your child brings home today. This year our Run will be held in the afternoon on Oct. 14th.
The deadline for returning your child’s form to his or her teacher is Oct. 9th. Please remember to sign the form in order to authorize your child’s participation in the Run. This year every participant will receive a Run for the Arts T-shirt, so please indicate your child’s shirt size on the form. Additional prizes will be given to our top fundraisers!
As always, these fun school events require a few helping hands, so if you can help out by volunteering on the day of the run, we’d love to have you here. Please contact our run coordinators to discuss volunteer opportunities and for any questions: email@example.com / firstname.lastname@example.org
