5th Graders Learn About Salmon

Posted on: December 5, 2018

Oak Grove’s fifth grade learned about the salmon life cycle up close as we watched roe hatch into alevin, and alevin grow into fry!

Once our young salmon were big enough, we walked down to the Willamette River at Takena Landing (whee – a walking field trip!) to release our salmon fry into the river!

Angel Tree Giving at the North Albany Complex!

Posted on: December 4, 2018

PTP/PTC have put together a wonderful opportunity for our school community to give to others this holiday season. If you would like to participate, simply choose a gift of your choice for a child of any age and send it is to either office.  There will be trees with tags at school after Thanksgiving—but feel free to purchase a gift for any school age child—tags to be added later.

Gifts will be taken to another school in our district to help families that need extra support. Please leave gifts unwrapped so that schools can align gifts with families.

Thank you for helping to make this holiday season special for those who may need a helping hand and an extra smile!
