Principal Angela Bacon says: Good Morning. My name is Angela Bacon and I am the principal at Toledo Elementary School in Toledo, WA. Toledo Elementary was designated a Priority School in 2013 and just 3 years later we have been recognized as being a School of Distinction, Washington State Recycling Association Public School Recycler of the Year, and now most recently we received a Washington Achievement Award for Closing the Achievement Gap for low income students. We are planning a celebration assembly for May 15th @ 10:30 AM in the Toledo Elementary School Gymnasium.
I recognize the responsibilities of the work you have before you, but we would love it is you could join us in celebrating our recent successes.
Thank You, Angela Bacon
Toledo Lioness Club says: Thank you to all who donated to white cane (last week @ Toledo Market Fresh). All your contribution goes to helping the blind.
Toledo Lioness Club also offers scholarships to area students, makes donations to local groups and projects, and so much more. Meets 6:30 p.m. third Wednesdays monthly, location varies. New members invited.
Common Ground Toledo says: Thank you, Mayor Steve Dobosh for helping CGT with this project. And thank you to the many volunteers who came out to help. The project to improve the soil for the struggling trees in downtown Toledo was a success!
We ended up transplanting two of the Redbuds trees to the Kemp Olson Memorial Park as they were showing signs of stress. Getting their roots down in good soil at the park will help them recover. The two now open large round planters will receive new plantings. All five planters along Cowlitz Street are designed with structural plantings, colorful foliage and flowers to tempt all the seasons.
CGT is always working on the garden philosophy: "right plant - right place." For water wise and sturdy yet beautiful garden displays.
Watch the planters come alive in the next few weeks.
Tomorrow: Toledo School District’s Facilities Advisory Committee is working to find alternative solutions to update and upgrade school buildings. You’re invited to get on board 6 p.m. Tuesday at the high school library. Documents to date available at this direct link.
BTW, sweat equity counts too! Stadium Fence installation seeking equipment and volunteers May 20 & May 27. Bring your Toledo Spirit!
Also tomorrow: Join us 7 p.m. at Toledo Community Library as we learn about razor clams from David Berger, author of "The Razor's Edge: The Washington Razor Clam Phenomenon" at the Toledo Community Library, sponsored by Humanities Washington.
Wednesday: Lewis County Senior Centers meets 10 a.m. second Wednesdays monthly at Twin Cities Senior Center to cover the business side of operating 5 Senior Centers. With the County transitioning away from overseeing these vital community facilities, taking an active role in their future is more important than ever.
