Thank you to the trustees, community leaders, school board members, and administrators who joined us for yesterday's tour of summer programs.

Thank you to Tyee Wine Cellars for sponsoring a fundraiser for the Corvallis School District Theaters on July 23. The winery’s first-ever Theater in the Barn production was a reading of A. R. Gurney’s humorous and moving play, Love Letters. Retired OSU Theatre Professor Charlotte Headrick and former Corvallis High teacher Rick Wallace—who is also a CPSF Trustee—starred in the piece. The sold-out evening raised over $1,000 for the Theater Fund. #talent #thankyou #csdtheater

2021 Golden Apple Recipient: Matthew King

Resume: He’s taught English for 14 years at Corvallis High School.

From the nomination: “Matt King has a singular understanding of student mental health and social emotional learning. Not only is he an educator who has deep connection with his students in the classroom (or Zoom room), he is tireless in his advocacy for connection with students who have experienced trauma or struggle.”

Hobbies: “I read, I write and I hike. I watch my son ride dirt bikes. We spend a lot of time at dirt-bike tracks.”

Last book read: “We the Animals,” by Justin Torres.

Matthew King was a decade into a successful teaching career at Corvallis High School when an adopted son began to show him that he was doing it wrong.

At a beautiful outdoor assembly at Wildcat Elementary this morning, we surprised Maria Adams with the fourth Golden Apple Award of 2021!

Those who nominated her said, "she makes Zoom fun and engaging for kindergartners and parents alike." They added that she always finds "silver linings to many of the challenges that arise... from online teaching." Maria is tireless in her efforts, and when problems arise she "researches the problems, finds a solution, and helps the families."

Congratulations, Maria! #goldenapple #thankyoueducators

She is dedicated to making sure "...students understand the material not just to pass a test, but to have the knowledge for a lifetime."

It’s Golden Apple season…so be prepared for a series of surprises in Corvallis schools over the next few weeks!

We got off to a great start today at Cheldelin Middle School by surprising Isley Gonzalez-Dumble, with this year's first Golden Apple Award!

In the words of colleagues who nominated her, Isley "has done an incredible job becoming a trusted mentor to all students, but especially students of color and students that are a part of the LGBTQ+ community." Her "...courage is truly inspirational to staff and students and should be celebrated."

Congratulations, Isley!

Then, there is this woman, who even had her image removed from photographs used for promoting NASA. Annie J. Easley (April 23, 1933 – June 25, 2011) was an American computer scientist, mathematician, and rocket scientist.[1] She worked for the Lewis Research Center (now Glenn Research Center[2]) of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and its predecessor, the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA). She was a leading member of the team which developed software for the Centaur rocket stage[3], and was one of the first African-Americans to work as a computer scientist at NASA.
I think that in renaming public schools, the names of living individuals should not be under consideration as a major scandal could occur. I also think that instead of honoring an arts person, that Corvallis schools should remember the lack of interest in STEM fields by Black children, and should consider naming at least one school for an important Black scientist. I suggest Dr. Charles R. Drew, a brilliant researcher and surgeon, who also fought for equality. Charles Richard Drew (June 3, 1904 – April 1, 1950) was an American surgeon and medical researcher. He researched in the field of blood transfusions, developing improved techniques for blood storage, and applied his expert knowledge to developing large-scale blood banks early in World War II. This allowed medics to save thousands of lives of the Allied forces.[1] As the most prominent African American in the field, Drew protested against the practice of racial segregation in the donation of blood, as it lacked scientific foundation, and resigned his position with the American Red Cross, which maintained the policy until 1950.[2]
Provide your Feedback on the CSD Long Range Facilities Draft Plan Several Community Information Nights are scheduled during the month of October at each school.

Remaining meeting dates and locations are as follows: October 9, Wilson Elementary School (gym) October 10, Linus Pauling Middle School (auditorium) October 11, Jefferson Elementary School (gym) October 15, Hoover Elementary School (gym) October 17, Mt. View Elementary School (library) October 18, Adams Elementary School (library) October 23, Franklin K-8 (gym) October 24, Cheldelin Middle School (library) October 25, Garfield Elementary (cafeteria) The full draft plan is available online at the following link: https://www.csd509j.net/departments/facilities-and-maintenance/long-range-planning/facilities-planning-committee The school board will be presented with a final draft in December. Questions about facilities planning may be directed to Facilities and Transportation Director, Kim Patten at 541-757-4487 or by email at [email protected]
We need your action today! The loss of 21st Century funding for after-school programs will affect our Corvallis community. The Boys & Girls Club and Corvallis School District currently serves 200 local youth at Garfield and Lincoln schools through 21st Century funds. If this funding is not renewed, then our ability to continue to provide STEM , literacy and student success programs to our youth will stop! The impact Nationwide is nearly 2M youth! Please take 23 seconds to click on this link and sign onto the letter of support. The website does all the rest to get it to your representative. Feedback MUST be received no later than Wednesday!
The Corvallis School Board is starting a review of the policy and administrative regulation related to fundraising for the district, at an upcoming special meeting on February 21, 2017 starting at 6:30 p.m. at the Corvallis School District office (1555 SW 35th Street, Corvallis). The board has been hearing from parents on this topic for some time, and is taking up this work in an effort to make fundraising in the district more equitable. The board is interested in addressing both fundraising in general and specifically the practice of using fundraised money for staffing at individual schools. Public input is an essential part of this process. At this meeting, the board will set aside time for public input related to fundraising and whether to allow fundraised money to be used for staffing. Parents, staff, and community members are encouraged to attend this meeting to offer input on these topics. The current board policy and administrative regulation pertaining to this subject (DEDA –“Fundraising for Programs, Activities, and Projects” and DEDA-AR – “Fundraising for Programs, Activities, and Projects”) are on the district website at: http://policy.osba.org/corvall/D/index.asp After hearing public comment, the board will discuss how to proceed. One of the possible outcomes of the upcoming meeting is that the board could direct the superintendent to convene a task force charged with returning a recommendation to the superintendent on how best to structure policy around fundraising in the Corvallis School District. If you would like to have input into the fundraising policy review process, you may provide your comments during the February 21st school board meeting and/or correspond with the school board at [email protected].
