Parent Partnership series

*** Message From Emily Gotfried (Findley School Counselor) ***

Findley Families,

We are excited and pleased to present our 3rd Parent Partnership information session. Our focus for the remainder of the year will be Executive Function.  Executive Function and Self-Regulation go hand in hand in helping our children to manage themselves day to day.  They also enable positive behavior and allow us all to make healthy choices.  We hope you’ll be able to join us for one of both of our last two sessions for the year.  Enjoy coffee and tasty treats while gaining knowledge to support your child’s learning.

March 5th 8:30-9:30 am Executive Function: Inhibition Control
May 28th 8:30-9:30 am Executive Function: Cognitive Flexibility

Please take a moment to RSVP via a brief google form to let us know if you’d be interested in attending.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

We hope to see you soon!

Please Note:

We need coaches to bring Girls on the Run to Findley!

Dear Findley Families,
 
We need coaches to bring Girls on the Run to Findley! 
 
Girls on the Run is a 10-week program that combines training for a 5k with lessons that inspire girls to become independent thinkers, enhance their problem-solving skills, and make healthy choices. Practice is 90 minutes twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays after school. Practice starts the week of March 2nd and ends the week of May 18th. 
 
We already have a full team of girls with a waiting list, but we can’t run the program without coaches! All the materials and activities are provided for you, no experience needed. 
 
Learn more and register at www.girlsontherunpdx.org/coach or contact Lisa Fisher (lisafisher1279@gmail.com) with any questions.
 
Sincerely,
Findley PTO

Collecting plastic water bottles through February 14th

Please help support this student-led fundraiser:

Findley is still collecting plastic water bottles all week through Friday, February 14th. All bottles that our school collects will be deposited in a BottleDrop and all money earned will be donated to Puplandia, a dog rescue mission. Please bring them to school and put them in the blue bags near the Main Entrance or Playground Entrance.

If every student brings just 8 bottles, we can donate more than $500 to Puplandia. We can help many dogs live a healthy and happy life! Bring as many bottles as you can. Every bottle counts.

These are the types of plastic bottles we are allowed to collect:
