Salem-Keizer Volunteers of the Month for February 2018

posted Feb 14, 2018, 10:41 AM by Salem Keizer



Volunteers Bob and Pat Wright are beloved by students, parents and staff at Bush Elementary School. We are very pleased to recognize the couple as our Volunteers of the Month for February 2018.

The couple has been volunteering together every Tuesday at Bush Elementary for the last 22 years. They were nominated for last night’s Salem-Keizer School Board recognition by Principal Monica Takata.

Bob is a retired engineer who worked for 30 years as a bridge designer for the Oregon Department of Transportation. Pat is a retired Salem-Keizer elementary school teacher who taught first and second grade for 20 years at Schirle Elementary and Hayesville Elementary.

As a former engineer, Bob is very good at math. He works with students learning their multiplication tables in fourth-grade and fifth-grade classes taught by teachers Margret Hill, Patricia Aguilera and Noah Hall.

Pat has helped out for several years in teacher Tanya Hauck’s kindergarten class working with students one-on-one teaching beginning reading, sounds, and reading readiness.

Bob says that anyone thinking of volunteering at Bush Elementary is in for a great experience.

“Whoever volunteers here can look forward to working with very good teachers, very dedicated people,” Bob said.

Pat agreed and said, “I appreciated volunteers so much when I was a teacher. It’s hard for a teacher to get to spend one-on-one time with students. Volunteers really make a difference.”

Thank you Bob and Pat Wright for making a difference at Bush Elementary School for more than two decades. It’s a sincere pleasure to honor such a wonderful couple as our Volunteers of the Month.

Immunization Exclusion Day | El Día de Exclusión Escolar por no Presentar las Vacunas

posted Feb 8, 2018, 12:49 PM by Salem Keizer

Immunization Exclusion Day is Wednesday, February 21, 2018. If your child is not up-to-date on the required vaccinations for the State of Oregon or does not have a valid exemption on file, they will be excluded from valuable instruction time per Senate Bill 895.

Missed instructional time can be highly detrimental to student success at all levels of education. In research conducted by the Oregon Department of Education, students who experience chronic absenteeism- especially in elementary aged students, have been found to experience higher dropout rates and difficulty in reaching high school graduation.

To ensure your student avoids unnecessary exclusion from classes, please review the required vaccinations below and contact your school if you have any questions or the department of student services at 503-399-3101.

For more information on health and immunizations in SKPS, please click here.

Se ha investigado que el absentismo crónico causa tasas más altas de deserción escolar y bajos porcentajes de graduación en las preparatorias. El día de exclusión escolar por no presentar las vacunas requeridas es el 21 de febrero, los estudiantes que no tengan las vacunas requeridas o la exención en el expediente escolar serán excluidos de valioso tiempo de instrucción. El 2015 se aprobó la ley del senado 895, la cual estipula que todos los niños que asistan a las escuelas o a centros de cuidado infantil según ORS 433.267 (1)(b) y (c), deberán tener las vacunas requeridas o una exención valida en su expediente para continuar con su asistencia escolar. En línea y abajo puede ver las vacunas requeridas para el año escolar 2017-18.
