Dear Hogan Cedars Families,

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year, eGBSD style! Yes, we are online, eGBSD, with Comprehensive Distance Learning this fall due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will continue to watch Oregon Department of Education's (ODE) metrics for when students are able to return onsite. We miss seeing your children's smiling faces in our school but we do get to see them online each day!

Our focus at Hogan Cedars continues to be to "Create a dynamic learning community where every student is valued and supported on his/her educational journey." Our staff joins you as partners in supporting children on this journey. We will continue to provide quality instruction and meaningful learning opportunities online for all students to succeed! Student learning is at the forefront of all we do. Let's work together to provide the best learning experiences for our students!

We also have a motto "Engaging Hearts and Minds." We want all students to engage their HEARTS as they show kindness, caring, compassion, and friendship towards others. We also want children to engage their MINDS as they develop skills in reading, writing, math, science, and social studies. You may also notice that ART is in the middle of the word HEARTS. We believe art is a creative expression and outlet for all of us! Social/emotional growth, academics success, and art experiences are all important! 

As always, we appreciate parents' commitment in getting their children here at school "on time and ready to learn" each day. This fall that means making sure your child has checked out a technology device, picked up supplies and materials, and log on to live lessons Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday at 8:30 am, 10:30 am, and 12:30 pm each week during scheduled school days. On Wednesdays there is a live lesson at 8:30 am. There are teacher facilitated and appliled learning activities as well each day, Monday - Friday. We are a true team in supporting our students! If you have a question or a concern, please call me at 503-261-4500.
