Keeping Informed: Recent Gresham Educational News
- Literacy by Design - Over the winter, a four-day event was held by the Gresham-Barlow Education Foundation to benefit their reading campaign. During this event, students from district high schools called parents and community members in search of donations. Literally by “Answering the Call,” donors were able to take active part in growing and shaping the elementary reading program “Literacy by Design.”
- Volunteer Opportunities - This year, the Oasis volunteer program is looking to add volunteers to their ranks in the hopes of pairing caring adults with students who are struggling with reading. Working one-on-one with a student, by giving just one hour per week during the school day, local Oasis volunteers can positively make an impact on a child’s educational career, and life. No teaching experience is required, and Oasis provides the necessary training and materials.
- Principal for a Day - Recently, twenty-one local Gresham area community and business leaders were given the rare privilege of being named “Principal for a Day.” Nothing helps gain understanding like stepping into someone else’s shoes, so to speak, and these lucky leaders were given a unique insight into the complex needs of the school system. Assuming the role of Principal in selected district schools, provided them the opportunity to connect with the students and witness first-hand how they are being readied for success in the future.

Chalk Talk: The Importance of Being at School On-Time
It may not seem like the most critical aspect of learning, but being on-time to school is an important component of academic success. Studies conducted by the U.S. Department of Education have found that truancy plays a major part in falling grades, resulting in struggling students. Students who miss the morning hours of the school day, shown to be the optimum hours for student learning, often under-achieve. This is one area where parents can establish a routine and expectations early in life, which becomes the students norm as they grow older.
