*** Hello Gilham Families! We’re back in the office registering students and preparing to welcome our new and returning Gilham families for another great year!
Sunday, August 25, from 4:00 to 5:30 at North Eugene High School, 4J is again hosting, Project Hope Kids Fair. This is a community partnership of churches and businesses that raise funds to provide athletic shoes, socks, backpacks with school supplies and haircuts in a fun environment. Bilingual translators will be available at every station for Spanish-speaking families. Tickets are available at the Gilham office on a first come, first served basis. Each child will need their own ticket to receive the supplies and services. A bus pass is printed on the back of each ticket. If you are interested in attending this event, pick your tickets up at the Gilham office Friday, August 16 from 7:30 -11:30 and 12:30 – 3:30. The office is closed on Monday but will open Tuesday, August 20 with regular daily hours from 7:30 to 3:30. This is a fun family event with inflatables, face-painting, games and food.
Enjoy the rest of your summer, and we’ll see you soon!***
