Our Greenwood spring winds up!

As we finish up our last month of school, it becomes very clear just how busy our students and staff are.  With field trips and testing, end of year activities and visits, and all the fun of the month before summer break, it feels a little like we're on that last mountain of a giant roller coaster before we plunge down the rails with our hands in the air!  It's fun, it's a little chaotic, it's exciting! 

Please check the calendar for upcoming events.  Don't miss out on the BBQ lunch with your student on the last day of school, or the awards assembly on the 28th.  Take the opportunity to help out with one of your student's many end of year activities.

Thanks for all you help this year.  We've seen monumental progress from so many students.  It's been exciting to watch each and every student progress.

Fundraisers in full swing at Greenwood

posted Feb 5, 2014, 1:56 PM by Brett Baxter

Hungry for pepperoni?  We've got you covered.  The 4th grade classes are selling Tillamook pepperoni, teriyaki, and beef sticks for $1 at the front office.  Students can purchase these snacks before or after school.

Need cookie dough or dessert treats?  No worries.  Students will be selling cookie dough until February 18, with product delivery happening on Wednesday, March 19, just before Spring Break.  This is a schoolwide fundraiser for the PTS group, garnering a significant amount of their support for the year.

Please help out Greenwood students by participating in either or both of these great efforts.
