  November Box Tops Contest

November 1st - November 27th

       Box Tops for Education has made some big changes to their program. They are transitioning from clipping Box Tops to a system in which people will use an app to scan their receipts for Box Tops credit. We will be sending home a flyer outlining the changes in the program. During this transition time, we can still earn cash for all clipped Box Tops that have not yet expired.  We will be collecting clipped Box Tops during the month of November. The class that turns in the most clipped Box Tops by November 27th will win a pizza party!



Dear Douglas Gardens Families,

The purpose of this message is to let families know that, this year, you may notice some very young learners on our campus. Beginning this fall, the Early Childhood Cares [EC Cares] program will be housed at our school. Early Childhood CARES is affiliated with the College of Education, University of Oregon. To accommodate this program, EC Cares will be establishing a learning space in yellow pod.   The program is specifically designed to provide early intervention and early childhood special education to infants, toddlers and preschool age children in Lane County.  At Douglas Gardens, the EC Cares staff will provide positive learning experiences appropriate to the individual developmental needs of 3 - 5 year olds. Feel free to reach out to EC Cares should you wish to learn more!

Please join us in welcoming the Early Childhood Cares staff, students and families to our school community!

    Students who qualify can still receive free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch, but beginning next year, parents/guardians will need to fill out paperwork applications to get signed up for the program.  You can begin filling out the paperwork August 1, 2019.

   Douglas Gardens Elementary leadership team and staff invested significant time during the 2015-2016 school year crafting a comprehensive achievement plan (CAP) for the school. The CAP is a plan that defines targeted work to raise achievement for all students. The CAP defines seven important objectives that the school will focus on over the next three school years. It is aimed at measurable goals, and it is monitored throughout the year. A copy of the Douglas Gardens' CAP is uploaded to the school website in PDF format for all stakeholders (staff, students, parents, family members, and district personnel) to review. Click on the link below for a copy of the CAP.


    This is a fun easy way to earn money for Douglas Gardens Elementary. 
Keep clipping Box Tops!
