Blue Wednesday

Staff and students wore blue shirts that day  in support of Coral.  Team Coral Spirited by Coral Crew at the Walter Strom Middle School made a big splash Wednesday March 22nd  with an assembly of encouragement. The message was clear; help those around you and choose KINDNESS!  

Thank you to Lisa Browitt, Interact Club and Team Coral!  
Keep up the great community effort!

Dollars for Scholars Needs YOU! 

It’s scholarship season!

If you are the parent or guardian of a child who will someday attend college, trade school or any type of post-secondary education, UKC Dollars for Scholars needs your help!  For over ten years, UKC Dollars for Scholars has provided scholarships to upper county students, and they want to continue to build scholarship funds.  UKC Dollars for Scholars has a ten-year track record of providing annual, renewable scholarships to upper county students, AND they have built an endowment fund that is approaching $100,000 so that they can continue to support our graduating seniors for generations to come.

For every $10 donated, you will receive one ticket for the raffle drawings to be held in June at an event honoring the current year’s scholarship recipients.  Past raffles have included Mariner’s tickets, rodeo tickets, golf at Suncadia and Sun Country, gift certificates for local businesses, and many other items.

Donate at ukc.dollarsforscholars.org and you will automatically be entered in the raffle.  Or you can contact Melissa Becker (melissa.becker@cwu.edu) to donate and get tickets.

If you are the parent or guardian of a graduating senior, make sure your child is applying NOW for an Upper Kittitas County Dollars for Scholars scholarship.   The application deadline is March 31.  Visitukc.dollarsforscholars.org  to apply!  If you need help applying, contact Kathy Jo Brooks (brooksk@cersd.org) or Melissa Becker (melissa.becker@cwu.edu).

Inclement Weather


With winter weather conditions upon us, we want to remind parents that late-start, or school closure, announcements will be made starting no later than 6:45 amWeather conditions sometimes change rapidly during the early morning hours especially toward sunrise and we try to predict, based on what we are seeing and what the weather forecast tells us, which choice of an altered school schedule is most appropriate.   On occasion, there may be a 1 hour delay that is changed to a 2-hour delay or a delay that is changed to a closure.  Please keep in mind that the Cle Elum-Roslyn School District encompasses a large area and while weather may be decent at your house, it could be worse in other areas within our boundaries. Announcements are sent out to each family via our K12 Alert system and are posted on the District's website.  Additionally, alerts are sent to local media such as KXLE 95.3 and KIMA TV in Yakima. 

If NO announcement of an altered school schedule is sent out, then school will start at the regular start times.

10 Facts About School Attendance

  1. Absenteeism in the first month of school can predict poor attendance throughout the school year. Half the students who miss 2-4 days in September go on to miss nearly a month of school. Read more
  2. An estimated 5 million to 7.5 million U.S. students miss nearly a month of school each year. Read more
  3. Absenteeism and its ill effects start early. One in 10 kindergarten and first grade students are chronically absent. Read more. Poor attendance can influence whether children read proficiently by the end of third grade or be held back. Read more
  4. By 6th grade, chronic absence becomes a leading indicator that a student will drop out of high school. Read more
  5. Research shows that missing 10 percent of the school, or about 18 days in most school districts, negatively affects a student’s academic performance. That’s just two days a month and that’s known as chronic absence. Read more
  6. The academic impact of missing that much school is the same whether the absences are excused or unexcused. Suspensions also add to lost time in the classroom.
  7.  Low-income students are four times more likely to be chronically absent than others often for reasons beyond their control, such as unstable housing, unreliable transportation and a lack of access to health care. Read more
  8. When students improve their attendance rates, they improve their academic prospects and chances for graduating. Read more
  9. Attendance improves when schools engage students and parents in positive ways and when schools provide mentors for chronically absent students. Read more
  10. Most school districts and states don’t look at all the right data to improve school attendance. They track how many students show up every day and how many are skipping school without an excuse, but not how many are missing so many days in excused and unexcused absence that they are headed off track academically.
