Teachers: Register now for summer workshops

Here are two summer workshops for teachers that will stretch your creativity, minds and (in one case) legs! 

Early registration is encouraged for the Art Academy for Educators, taking place June 15-16 at the Umpqua Valley Arts Center in Roseburg and for the Outdoor Education Workshop, scheduled Aug. 17-18 at the Alder Creek Community Forest near Canyonville. Each training offers a $100 stipend as well as the opportunity to earn professional development units.

Registration open for Aug. 8-9 S.W. Oregon Leadership Conference

By late spring, we're looking forward to summer. Time now to sign up for the summer conference that gets you ready for fall! 

Oregon's Superintendent of the Year, Heidi Sipe, is the keynote speaker for the Southwest Oregon Leadership Conference, taking place Aug. 8 and 9 at the Danny Lang Event Center at Umpqua Community College. Go here for details and registration.


A public meeting of the Budget Committee of the Douglas Education Service District, Douglas County, State of Oregon, will be held at the Douglas Education Service District building, 1871 NE Stephens Street, Roseburg, Oregon to discuss the budget for the fiscal year July 1, 2016 to June 30, 2017. The meeting will take place on May 26, 2016 at 7:00 p.m.

Golden Apple nominee reflects core values

Two kindergarteners are happy to supply the name of the critter they’ve been asked to identify on a flash card. “It’s a piGG!” they chortle.

Speech/language pathologist MiaTree Oquilo responds with equal enthusiasm as she wields the card. “Right! And I love hearing that ‘gah’ at the end,” she says.

MATP on Safari a roaring success

“This room is just filled with joy.”

That was one variation of a comment overheard numerous times Thursday at the Fremont Middle School Gym. The mood was appropriately festive for a day the calendar calls Cinco de Mayo, and that we at Douglas ESD set aside to celebrate our Motor Activities Training Program.
