The Learning About Horses group spend the week learning about horse behavior, pack positions, life in the wild, and how to care for domesticated horses, then get to meet a real horse! The kids crawling in the classroom are acting out positions in the pack, and predator and prey behaviors.
Mystery solved! Mr. Otte took his enrichment class on a trip to the stars Monday with this cool inflatable planetarium from the Southern Oregon Educational Services District! We are grateful for their partnership and Mr. Otte’s creativity!
In the second session of our summer learning program our K-8 students are getting academic and enrichment opportunities that change each week. Ms. Allana’s cooking class kicked things off with the basics of fat, salt, and acid and made their own salad dressings! Some were were a hit and some were… well… an opportunity to eat greens dressing free!

Verizon hosts 10th Annual Backpack and School Supplies Giveaway
Jackson County, Ore. — Inflation has taken a toll on families in more ways than anyone could have imagined. But, there are a few things that still have to be done no matter what, like making sure your children have back-to-school supplies.
For parents who are struggling and need extra help with that, the Cellular Connection for Verizon is hosting their 10th Annual Backpack and School Supplies Giveaway.
“Every location we have around the country gets from 150-200 backpacks every year and they come filled with school supplies from folders, rulers, paper, pencils and pens,” said Daniel Varela, District Manager for Southern Oregon TCC Verizon.
According to Varela, they have four locations in Southern Oregon and the event will take place July 31 from 1:00-4:00 p.m.
“We ask that when you do show up that you bring your child with you so we can hand them the backpack," Varela said. "We just encourage everyone to come out, we will have food vendors and games for everyone to enjoy as well.”
The locations are:
498 Union Ave
142 NE Terry Lane
1779 N. Riverside
1315 Center Drive
“We have five $10,000 scholarships we will be giving away as well across all our locations," Varela said. "There's a little QR code that we can get them signed up for the potential to win one of these $10,000 scholarships, so when they come get a backpack we’ll help them out with that part as well.”
They will be announcing the winner a few weeks after the giveaway and will contact each person that won.
