Dear friends and families of Yujin Gakuen,
Thank you to all the families who came last week to pick up supplies and teacher-created materials. Most of the supplies were picked up, but there are still quite a few remaining. Families who have not picked up supplies, please contact the office (541-790-4606) to make arrangements to pick up at another time.
We have just a few announcements this week. See below. Have a good evening and enjoy the rest of the week.

Site Council & PTO Meetings Next Thursday
The Site Council will be meeting next Thursday, Nov. 19th, from 3:00 to 4:00 pm. With so many families, staff included, having to do so much during COVID-19, we all need to find ways to work more efficiently. At next week’s meeting, Ashley Sensei, who is also the co-president of the YG PTO, will facilitate a discussion and seek feedback on how the PTO and Site Council can work together in meeting our school’s goals. All YG families are welcome to participate. A zoom link will be sent in a separate email.
The PTO will be meeting next Thursday from 6:30 to 7:30. This will be the first meeting fun by the new PTO board. A zoom link, along with the agenda, will be sent in a separate email.
4J Virtual OBOB Book Clubs and Activities
Are you stuck on what to read next? Do you just need to hang out with your peers and talk? A book club is the place for you! Our fall and winter books clubs are going to focus on OBOB 2020 book (All OBOB books are available through the Eugene Public Library in ebooks, audiobook, and print format. Click here for more information on how to obtain a free library card available for ALL 4J students.). Though OBOB is not hosting state and regional competitions this year, our district can have its own competition. Let’s read and learn together! You don’t have to have a team to join us or even participate in OBOB to take part.

This is a repeat of information already sent to families, but I thought it would be helpful to send it again.
