Dear Olympic Families,
For those who are returning to Olympic, welcome back! If this is your first year at our school, we look forward to meeting you and sharing all there is to know for a successful year.
You should be receiving a welcome letter from your child’s teacher in the next day or two, if you haven’t already had it arrive in the mail. This allows families to get to know their child’s teacher before the first day of school. If you don’t receive a letter by August 23rd, please contact the office at (360) 575-7084.
We are excited to continue a tradition at Olympic by holding our Back to School BBQ on Tuesday, August 28th from 1:00 – 3:00. The purpose of this event is to allow parents and students to meet their teacher, see where their classroom is and drop off supplies before the first day of school. Families can come anytime between 1:00 and 3:00, it isn’t intended to be a two hour event that everyone stays for the whole time. Our wonderful PTO will be providing a complimentary hot dog lunch as a way to welcome students and families back from the summer and allow for some time […]
Longview Public Schools Superintendent Dan Zorn and School Board member Phil Jurmu set the pace at Longview’s Go Fourth parade.
While serving as grand marshal of the 2018 Go Fourth parade, Superintendent Dan Zorn and his crew of LPS staff, board members, family and friends passed out thousands of bookmarks encouraging everyone to read this summer.
The bookmarks include a link to “Superintendent Storytime,” where Dr. Zorn shares several of his favorite children’s books.
Let’s be safe out there everyone! No fireworks are allowed on district property.
Young people sample lots of activities in high school, and by the time they graduate each has a unique set of experiences to call their own. We asked three members of Longview’s class of 2018 to share something about their high school careers, a piece of advice and their post-graduation plans.
Mark Morris grad Becky Grubbs
Mark Morris High School: Hardwired to help
Becky Grubbs seems hardwired for volunteering.
“I’ve been doing non-profit work since I was 18 months old,” said
the senior, describing those early times with her grandparents
at FISH of Cowlitz County, which distributes food and other services.
This year and last, Becky received Volunteer of the Year honors from the Cowlitz-Wahkiakum United Way.
Becky began volunteering at the United Way as a sophomore and soon was helping plan events, like the Day of Caring campaign. This year she worked with LPS to implement a literacy program that put 100 Mark Morris and R.A. Long students in third grade classrooms where they encouraged the younger students to read for fun.
“Becky took it on as her pet project … and set up student teams at the high schools,” said Brooke Fisher-Clark, United Way executive director. “It was really magical to see that partnership.”
Becky said volunteer work has taught her that there is always […]
