WEEK OF: March 23-27
On Friday we had our Spaghetti Dinner and 7th Annual Basketball Fundraiser sponsored by Cub Power. The staff and board members had such a great time playing basketball against our 8th grade class (even if they embarrassed us a little)! Thank you to our sponsors, Roseburg Forest Products, our parents who donated to their classroom baskets and our staff who made all the wonderful, yummy desserts for our Silent Dessert Auction. Our Cafeteria staff put together a delicious dinner for us that was served by our Student Council officers. Thank you to all who came out to enjoy the festivities and support our school! Congratulations to Rachel Gonzalez who won the Xbox 1!! It’s amazing what we can accomplish when we all work together!
We will be having typing contests at lunch: 3rd – 5th grades on March 25th and 6th – 8th on March 26th. Kindergarten- third grade students who have demonstrated Cub Character will participate in our Cub Character event for March. On Friday we will be going to Bel-Air park for an Easter Egg Hunt.
Track & Field practice will begin this week on Tuesday and Thursday from 3:45-4:45 at COS. If you want your child to take the bus to practice you must write a note for them and we can keep it on file all season.

Congratulations to our students who qualified to go to our March Cub Character Event. We had Joe Odhiambo, an incredible Basketball Trick Star who holds 5 Guinness World Records!

Have patience (because becoming the best takes time) 3. Do the right thing in the right place at the right time 4. Work hard and 5. Be responsible.
(MP1) Make sense of problems and persevere in solving them; (MP2) Reason abstractly and quantitatively; (MP3) Construct Viable arguments and critique reasoning of others.
Students will read complex text closely to analyze what the text says explicitly and make logical inferences from it; citing specific textual evidence when writing or speaking to support conclusions drawn from the text.
