Walk and Roll to School Tomorrow

bikeDear Prairie Mountain Families,

Bike and Walk to School Day is coming up on May 4. We love encouraging students to walk or bike to school as a great way to have a healthy start to the day and care for the planet at the same time.

We want to make sure families are aware of an upcoming change in guidelines around scooters and skateboards. Starting Monday, May 9, students will be asked not to bring skateboards and scooters into the building. Many students already have locks and we’ll ask that they bring a lock to secure their skateboard or scooter outside at our bike racks.

Thanks to a grant from the Bike and Walk to School Program, we have about 25 locks available for check out to families without a personal lock from home. Students who do not have a lock at home can check out a lock from the main office the first week of May for the remainder of the year. We would like to reserve supplies for students who do not otherwise have access to a lock. There is no cost up front, but lost locks result in a fee of $6.00. Again, starting Monday, May 9, scooters and skateboards will need to be kept at the bike racks, so please do plan ahead.

 

Estimadas familias de Prairie Mountain,

El día de montar en Bicicleta y Caminar a la Escuela se avecina en el 4 de mayo. Nos encanta animar a los estudiantes a que caminen o monten en bicicleta a la escuela como una gran manera de tener un comienzo saludable para el día y el cuidado del planeta al mismo tiempo.

Queremos asegurar que las familias tengan conocimiento de un próximo cambio en las guías acerca de los monopatines y patinetes. A partir del lunes, 9 de mayo se les pedirá a los estudiantes no traer los monopatines y patinetes dentro del edificio. Muchos estudiantes ya tienen candados y vamos a pedir que traigan un candado para asegurar su patineta o monopatín afuera en nuestra área de portabicicletas.

Gracias a una donación de Bike and Walk to School Program tenemos alrededor de 25 candados disponibles para prestar a las familias sin un candado personal de casa. Los estudiantes que no tienen un candado en casa pueden pedir prestado un candado en la oficina principal en la primera semana de mayo para el resto del año. Nos gustaría reservar suministros para los estudiantes que de otra manera no tienen acceso a un candado. No hay costo por adelantado, pero el resultado del costo de un candado extraviado es de $ 6.00. Una vez más, a partir del lunes, 9 de mayo los monopatines y patines tendrán que ser mantenido en el área de portabicicletas, así que por favor planificar con anticipación.

An Important Message from Principal Carey Killen

Hi Prairie Mountain Parents and Guardians,
I just wanted to remind you of an opportunity to share your thoughts on what you want our schools to be. Superintendent Colt Gill is hosting two Oregon Rising meetings next week (Tuesday at 7:00pm and Wednesday at 5:30pm) at Willamette High School, and all Prairie Mountain parents are encouraged to attend. It’s a chance to share your thoughts in a survey that will tell state leaders what kind of investment in our schools is needed. The more voices, the better. Click here for more information

 

Estimados Padres/Guardianes de Prairie Mountain,

Quería recordarles a todos que nuestros padres/guardianes tienen una oportunidad de expresar sus opiniones sobre cómo quieran que sean sus escuelas en el futuro.  El Superintendente Colt Gill está organizando dos reuniones sobre Oregon Rising en la semana que viene, el martes a las 7:00pm o el miėrcoles a las 5:30pm, en Willamette High School, y se animan a todos los padres/guardianes asistir.  Es una oportunidad de expresar sus pensamientos en una encuesta que les dirá a los líderes del estado quė tipo de inversión en nuestras escuelas se necesita.  Cuantas más voces escuchamos, mejor.  Haga clic aquí para más información sobre las reuniones
