From Creswell Middle School:
The China/Oregon Administrator Exchange that Mrs. Burrus is involved in is coming to pass after long months of planning. Our Chinese guest arrives on Saturday, January 24. Six days of events have been carefully planned, and are eagerly anticipated by staff and students. Many of the classes have been learning about China, as the whole school is taking part. A trip to the beautiful Oregon coast on the weekend with CMS staff, a Trailblazers game, visiting all three schools and various programs, and the food pantry are just some of the things she will experience. We trust she will learn from our district and Mrs. Burrus will endeavor to bring back innovative ideas from China when she visits there in March. Our entire district should benefit from this partnership. Mrs. Burrus is excited!
Looking ahead, there is a Creswell Music Booster’s fundraiser at Papa’s Pizza in Springfield on Tuesday, Jan. 27, with 50% of sales ordered with a copy of the attached flyer being donated to the Boosters.
