Welcome New Staff
New Secretary – I am pleased to announce that we have a new school secretary. Please welcome Laura Whitney. Laura is a graduate of the University of Oregon, where she was on the marching band. She plays flute, by the way. Laura’s has experience in finance and in retail. She is known to be friendly, easy-going, hard-working, well-organized, and works well with children.
Laura will start on March 29th, but she will need to do a lot of training. Terri Johnson who has been filling in as interim secretary will also be working to provide training and to cover the office when Laura does her extensive training on our student records and finance programs.

Please welcome Michelle Melvin. Michelle has experience as a childcare provider and a volunteer in school programs and parks and recreation. Michelle moved recently from California.
Students, welcome back to school buildings!
These videos are repeats from what was posted on the 4J website. They serve as an introduction to what students can expect when they come back to school in-person.
Videos of K-1 Classrooms
Students got to see the inside of the building, but many parents wanted to see what the classrooms and hallways looked like. If you are interested, check out the videos of the kindergarten and first grade entrances and classrooms.
If you have trouble viewing the videos, they are also available on our YG Google drive. See below:
