Volunteer with SMART® (Start Making A Reader Today) from now until mid-May.
You may qualify for the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). Even partially qualifying can help you stretch your food dollar, and may also benefit other families in the David Douglas School District.
Here’s how: Schools that are Community Eligible can provide free meals to every student in the school. Schools become Community Eligible based on the number of families in the attendance area who qualify for SNAP. Five schools in David Douglas already qualify for Community Eligibility, and all students in those schools receive free meals. We hope to bring free meals for all students to all of our schools.
Applying for SNAP benefits online is easy. Just go to https://apps.state.or.us/onlineApplication
If you want assistance, call 1-855-626-2050 Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm

We wanted to let you know that we have adopted a Social and Emotional Learning curriculum and framework called, “MindUP.” It consists of 15-lessons designed to help your child flourish and become more resilient. Children who are engaged in MindUP classrooms are more optimistic, empathetic, compassionate and have lower levels of stress and anxiety. When combined with key principles and practices at school and at home it can help children develop self-regulation and focus, an improved ability to work well with others and improved relationships with themselves, siblings and with the community. If you would like more information, please visit our school website, you will find a “MindUP Parent Guide” in the “Parent Resource” folder.
We look forward to taking this journey with you!
We have had a wonderful opportunity this year to begin our year with a District adopted curriculum called Mind-Up. The curriculum is aimed at helping students learn about the brain and how it works. We have had many lessons on using our senses to notice things around us. We have had lessons about three important parts of our brains and how these parts work together to help us learn.The song below is one that is included in the lessons for students to remember the parts of the brain.
We hope you’ve noticed your child talking about some of these lessons. Maybe you have heard your child mention the three parts of the brain we have been focused on: the amygdala, the prefrontal cortex, and the hippocampus. If you have any questions regarding the curriculum, or lessons please don’t hesitate to call us at 503.256.6554.
