Dear Hood River County School District Students and Families,
Welcome to a new school year! It really is our privilege to partner with you in the intellectual, social and healthy development of your children. Education is indeed a partnership: together can we make certain that your children get the most out of the excellent educational experiences planned for the upcoming school year and that they are prepared for the world awaiting them after high school graduation. Thank you for putting your trust in the Hood River County School District and allowing us to be your partner in your child’s academic journey.
Since the adoption of our strategic plan in 2014, we have been highly focused on achieving one powerful, overarching goal: Every student graduates with the knowledge and courage to learn, serve, and pursue their dreams. We are making steady progress towards this lofty goal and the full implementation of the high-leverage, research-based strategies outlined in the enclosed “20/20 Vision.” Please take some time to read through this comprehensive plan and visit our webpage at https://www.hoodriver.k12.or.us/Domain/5 to review our progress. I know you’ll be excited about our commitment to continuous improvement, the opportunities for your involvement, and our focus on your child’s success.
11-13-2017 - Copperwest, Celilo and the Hood River County Education Foundation Step Up to Support Cascade Locks Children and Families
Copperwest Properties, Celilo Restaurant and the Hood River County Education Foundation have joined forces to ensure that after-school programs at Cascade Locks Elementary School are expanded to include more students. The school district has been running the after-school “Excel Program” since 2013, but recently sustained a 50% reduction in federal funding for the program. This has resulted in serving fewer students and more limited programming.
Maui Meyer, one of the three Partners at Celilo Restaurant and Catering and Copperwest Properties, explains, “We want to do whatever we can to help our neighbors in Cascade Locks get back on their feet after the Eagle Creek Fire. Quality after-school programs for students means parents can get back to work knowing their children are well cared for and safe.” The families of Celilo Restaurant and Catering and Copperwest Properties’ contribution of $3,500 was matched by the Hood River County Education Foundation (HRCEF).
