Once again, our 5th grade students represented EY well with excellent behavior, sportsmanship, and teamwork at the Newberg 5th Grade Track Meet. Our students also gave their best effort on the field and the track, and there were many ribbons earned. Great job, 5th graders. Click on the link below to view several photos of the event!
Chehalem Parks and Rec is looking for students entering 6th grade this fall to help out with their Safety Town program for 5-6 year-old children. If interested, the information and application is attached.
Our 5th graders shined in effort, athleticism, and sportsmanship today at the annual 5th grade Track Meet at Newberg High School. As usual, it was a very organized event. Thanks to Mr. Harris and the rest of the Newberg elementary PE teachers for putting together such aa great event for all 5th grades across the district. Even better today, the weather was perfect for running and field activities. Take a few moments to view photos from today.
Today our 4/5 students were treated to a visit by some very special people. Historical novelist, journalist, and producer, Andrew Buckley from Chatham, MA, visited our students today to share details about his Boston-based TV series, Hit and Run History: The Columbia Expedition.
The seeds of this visit dates back to 2008 when our 4/5 students that year produced videos using iMovie about Pacific Northwest Sea Explorers. Mr. Buckley had recently written a book about the ship Columbia and was conducting research the development of a TV series. In his search, he came up on the Ewing Young videos and this served as an inspiration for him to pursue his project.
Presently, Andrew, his 10 year old daughter, Sophie, and his production crew are filming and interviewing for a segment about the Columbia’s expedition along the Oregon coast. They drove over from Tillamook to visit our school before heading back over to Astoria to be part of the replica ship, Lady Washington’s entrance to the Columbia River this week.
In addition, his daughter, Sophie, is part of a web-based TV series of her own titled, China: Through My Eyes. Sophie shared about her series, her visit to China, and about her other worldly travels.
Some video footage was taken and it is estimated that the segment will be shown on Boston’s WBGH- TV in the fall. Since we don’t get that station around here, we’ll be able to view the segments on the Hit and Run History website when it is posted later in the year.
Here is one of the student videos from 2008 that set the whole visit today in motion.

Valentine’s Day is a special day for children. They look forward to being showered with friendship. Children are not required to bring valentines. If your child does choose to bring cards, please bring one for every student in the homeroom class. Students may choose to bring valentines for students in the other class, but are certainly not required to. We will have a time to exchange valentines at the end of the day on Thursday, February 14th. Students will be given class lists on Tuesday, Feb 5th. We will have extra copies in our extra paper baskets if the need arises.
Our EY 5th graders participated in the annual 5th District Track Meet today. The event was hosted graciously at Sherwood High School since the NHS field is currently undergoing remodeling. Our 5th graders performed very well on the field and earned many ribbons. More importantly, our students once again exhibited outstanding attitudes, effort, and sportsmanship. Congratulations to our 5th graders!
