Two NAE Teachers Win Mini Grants…

Posted on: December 10, 2018

This year Northwest Community Credit Union received 320 very deserving submissions across Oregon. Sixty-Seven (67) of these have been selected to be fulfilled. Two of them were teachers at NAE!

Stacey Morris, third grade teacher, received a $200.00 mini grant for a 100 piece Magnatile Set. She plans to create STEM challenges in her classroom to develop math, science, spatial and tactile skills.

Megan Louber, fourth grade teacher, received a $500.00 mini grant for a classroom set of oil pastels to promote students creative and critical thinking skills. Integrating art into the classroom is more than being creative. It teaches strategy, integration of the core curriculum, and perseverance.

Congratulations to these teachers!

Estimados Padres de Familia:
A veces tenemos que clausurar la escuela, empezar tarde o salir temprano, por causa del mal clima. Esta carta anual es para recordarles de los procedimientos que usamos cuando debemos clausurar la escuela o cambiar los horarios por causa del mal clima.
Cuando la decisión de la clausura de la escuela o la de empezar más tarde ha sido tomada,
dependemos de las radios locales y las estaciones de televisión. La información sobre la clausura y el retraso de las clases, por lo general se empezará a transmitir desde las 6:30 am. La información sobre la clausura estará también publicada en el lugar de la red del distrito en www.albany.k12.or.us.

Nuestro distrito está subscrito a un programa que envía mensajes de alerta llamado FlashAlert. Este servicio envía información de los cierres de la escuela a las estaciones de radio y televisión locales. Los miembros del personal, padres o miembros de la comunidad que desean recibir estas notificaciones directamente pueden registrarse en http://www.flashalert.net/news.html?id=879. Las notificaciones luego serán enviadas vía correo electrónico. Para aquellos de ustedes que tienen una tableta o teléfono inteligente, pueden recibir mensajes bajando la aplicación “FlashAlert Messenger app”. Esta aplicación está disponible en Google Play o en la tienda iTunes app store. No hay costos
para los suscriptores por recibir notificaciones vía correo electrónico o la aplicación. Ahora
mismo, seria bueno ingresar a su cuenta de “FlashAlert” para asegurar que su información de contacto este actualizada.

Todas las direcciones de correos electrónicos registradas en FlashAlert se mantendrán
confidenciales. Los subscriptores deben tener en cuenta que algunos filtros en contra de “spam”
(correos no deseados), podrían impedir que reciba mensajes.
A continuación están algunas de las estaciones de radio y televisión que serán notificadas de los cierres de las escuelas:
