In honor of March Madness and Read Across America, we will do “Seuss Madness” during the month of March. Teachers will read 16 Dr. Seuss books to their class during March. The books will be arranged in a bracket format, and each class will vote for a winner in each bracket. We will then work our way down each week from 16 books to the final four, final two, and champion. In order to make this possible, we are asking for your help collecting enough books.
Following is a list of the books and how many are needed. If you have copies of any of the books on the list, and are willing to loan them to the school in March, please drop them off in the office before the end of February. Please label your books with your family name so they can be returned to you after this fun event.

Our Spring Carnival Games Need YOUR Help.
Planning is already underway to make this year’s Spring Carnival the WACKIEST one yet. We need your help coming up with new carnival games to offer.
So if you are creative (or a pro with Pinterest), we need your suggestions and ideas. But more importantly, we are looking for a few handy parents to donate their time and/or materials to making these games come to life.
Please contact Dawn Redmond if you have ideas or would like to build a game for the PTA. If you find any fun ideas online, feel free to email the specific website link, too!
As featured in the Camas-Washougal Post-Record on Jan. 28, Grass Valley’s very own music teacher and vocal jazz instructor, Natalie Wilson, is racking up the honors. She has been named the Outstanding Music Educator for the Lower Columbia River Music Education Association. She will be honored at the state conference in Yakima.
Wilson has also accepted a position with the national Jazz Education Network serving as K-8 chairperson while continuing to teach at Grass Valley.
Way to go, Mrs. Wilson! We’re so proud you’re a ZEBRA.
