Bohemia Students Collect Spare Change and CHANGE LIVES

By Diane Hicks, 2nd Grade Teacher Bohemia Elementary

Children are using their power to make a positive impact on the lives of young blood cancer patients!  Bohemia School has joined other schools across Oregon, SW Washington, Idaho and Montana in a program that is instrumental in raising funds for lifesaving cancer research.

We are taking part in The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Pennies for Patients.  During the period of April 28 - May 23, students will collect spare change to support the mission to cure blood cancers, and to improve the quality of life of patients and their families.bohemia

Some very committed students are even setting up Lemonade Stands, holding yard sales, cleaning under couch cushions, emptying pants pockets, and writing letters to family members.

What all these students will be learning about service, leadership and philanthropy will be immeasurable, and the impact they will have on patients' lives will be limitless.

You can help by making a personal donation at Bohemia School in cash or by check, made payable to The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society or online at http://or.sy.llsevent.org/.

And the winner is..... SLSD Maintenance Stars!

By Mary Dubbs 

At the annual OSBA PACE (Property and Casualty Coverage for Education) Day - Safe and Secure Schools Conference, South Lane School District was honored twice!

awardThe South Lane School District as recognized for having an outstanding program to thin trees and remove brush to update an existing cross country and hiking trail.  Due to the overgrowth of vegetation in this area, there have been several occurrences of vandalism including four different instances of attempts to start fires.  Once the project is complete there will be increased visibility creating a safer environment and through careful management of the area will improve the health of the forest and also reduce fire hazard.  Thank you to Facilities Supervisor Matt Allen and the OUTSTANDING Maintenance Team!

Brian Anderson, a custodian in the South Lane School District since 2005, has distinguished himself by being an pace awardoutstanding employee.  He mentors a student through the Reaching Out Mentoring Program, is a member of the CGHS Action Committee that looks for ways to brighten the school and has, for the last four years, worked with a group of special education students teaching them custodial skills and preparing them for the workforce outside of high school.  In addition, Brian has spent many weekends mentoring these students, providing outdoor recreational activities which they might otherwise not experience.  In addition, Brian is a dedicated member of South Lane's CLASS Committee that is working to revamp the classified evaluation system.  Brian is a hardworking, intelligent, honest and genuine person.

Teaming Up For Student Success

By Ali Nice

What happens when you are full of creative ideas but can't tolerate the feel of the pencil on paper or struggle with fine motor skills to write legible letters? For a few of our students, it means refusing to write, getting frustrated, and challenging even the best teacher's motivational strategies. 

ipadAs you can see in the photo, some of our students have a new attitude about creating written work! We would like to thank the Cottage Grove Community Foundation for their grant funds, allowing us to purchase two iPad minis loaded with the app, Dragon Dictation. This grant was awarded to help us teach students with disabilities in the area of writing.

These are two Harrison students speaking into the iPad and seeing their words appear like magic on the screen. The text can then be edited on the iPad or on a desktop computer.  It's amazing what creative ideas can be unleashed when the physical obstacles are removed! (After the iPads arrived we found another use: Helping students with articulation issues practice making clear sounds!)

Guten Tag South Lane!  

By Geriann Walker

bkingYou may be hearing a lot more German being spoken around Cottage Grove now that thirteen CGHS students have returned from their spring break tour of Germany and Austria.  The group spent a week in the heart of Munich, taking in the culture and architecture of Bavaria.  Their days were filled with action and adventure as they walked, biked, and rode the subway from one attraction to another.  They interacted with locals, speaking their best German while completing a treasure hunt around the old city. They toured palaces, cathedrals, and castles while learning about German history, art, and literature. They got a taste of German business and industry with a visit to BMW World.  They spent a day in Salzburg, Austria, viewing the baroque architecture of this World Heritage site.  They toured Salzburg's hillside medieval fortress and the birthplace of Mozart.  Not a moment was wasted as they sang and yodeled to Alpine favorites on the way to and from this city at the foot of the Alps. Each day of their tour was focused around a theme, such as the day students toured Dachau, a former concentration camp, and considered aspects of German Remembrance Culture. In addition to visiting Dachau, students read poetry written by holocaust survivors, and shared their thoughts and feelings as they stood in front of the newly built Munich synagogue. To cap off an amazing week in Germany, students enjoyed one final traditional Bavarian meal, followed by an energetic round of Bavarian folk dancing lead by members of a local Bavarian dance club. The trip was organized and made possible by CGHS German teacher Angela Schaefer.   bmw world
