Summer of 2017

We hope everyone is having a great summer. We are up and running with the website again. Information will appear here soon about packet pick up in August.

Stay tuned!

First day of school…

is coming!  Make sure you are here on time!  All students should be in the cafeteria ready for our morning meeting by 7:30 AM.  You don’t want to be late — you might miss some important information.

Also, first day for 6th graders, September 6, we will be having a new parent meeting.  If you are a parent of a 6th grade Rachel Carson student, you don’t want to miss this meeting.

Chihuly Chandelier Is Installed

Our art work will be forever showcased in the school’s library for all to enjoy!

Chihuly Inspired Chandelier Created by Students

Together Rachel Carson & Five Oaks students painted, cut & assembled over 500 water bottles to create a Chihuly inspired chandelier.
We would like to thank the Cultural Coalition of Washington County and the Oregon Cultural Trust for their generous grant.

Our students continue to do good work…

William is a former Rachel Carson student who will be a High School Sophomore next year.  Please consider helping him with his latest commitment to community service.


From William:

Dear friends, family, and teachers,
On July 26 I will be riding my bike 63 miles in Portland’s Tour De Cure.  This is a ride to raise money for diabetes.  This means a lot to me given that I have friends and family who are diabetic.  Also I will be riding on the Subaru team which is a big deal for me.  I have a goal of raising at least $200 but I am hoping that I will exceed this goal to have a greater impact on the fight against diabetes.  Will you please sponsor me?  Anything you donate will help!
This is a link to my donation page
Thank you so much for being so supportive of me and I hope we can reach the goal!
-William A.
