    News and Events From Charlotte Morris, Principal...

    We are looking forward to next week when we take the time to celebrate all of our wonderful volunteers with our Volunteer Appreciation Dessert. Our teachers and staff are excited to thank our parents and volunteers who make our school an amazing place to learn and teach. Please join us on Thursday, May 26 at 2:15 pm for some delicious desserts.

    Our Hoot ’n’ Scoot was amazing last week! The sun was out and the runners were ready to participate in this fun fitness activity. Thank you to Suzanne Tye and her team for the Forest Flyers training in which students were involved. Thank you to Christy Briggs, Michelle Doel and their team for all of the organization that went into preparing and holding this big event.

    We started with a wonderful opening ceremony. Tim Tawa, the quarterback for the West Linn High School football team, gave an inspiring speech to the students. He talked about what he has learned from his family about being healthy and fit. He included that he has learned that eating good food, exercising, studying and working hard in school are important to being successful and happy in life. In addition, he shared two key principles that his dad has taught him. First, Do Your Best and second, Do the Right Thing. Tim said that these principles guide him each and every day.

    After Tim spoke, everyone cheered as our mascot, now named Owliver, led the students cheering as the opening ceremony ended. Owliver continued to cheer students on throughout the school day. It was clear at our closing ceremony that Owliver is deeply loved. Thank you to our ‘Owlivers.’ We appreciate you throughout our school year. You really know how to cheer the students on!

    During the actual fun run, the students at recess spontaneously showed their support holding out their hands and giving high fives as the runners sped by. Students all received a medal necklace for participating and a water bottle that was used during the race. The race ended with a congratulatory popsicle! Marathon by May medals will be given out later this year when each child who has earned one, will be recognized at a community meeting.

    The total funds raised through the Hoot ’n’ Scoot is $21,267.48! We are fortunate to have this wonderful forest loop as part of our playground. Over the year, students ran 51,500 laps for over 6,444 miles. Thank you to all the families, extended family members, neighbors and businesses who supported us! Thank you to our Forest Flyer and Marathon by May Committee for encouraging the students and thank you to our students for taking their fitness seriously and having fun!

  • Education Foundation Count Me In Campaign Update A big thank you for making a difference! Trillium Creek Primary is now at 51% of our target goal, up from 37% last week. We now have 38 donors from Trillium Creek supporting our Count Me In Campaign. We have just only 3 more weeks to go on our school’s Education Foundation goal of raising $10,000. More importantly, we hope to have more donors from our school supporting this worthy fundraiser. Your donations support the overall goal of adding three new teachers to our district in the coming school year. If you have not yet done so, please consider making a donation by going to the website Any amount counts as we work toward our goal! Let’s work together to increase the number of donors from Trillium Creek Primary! Additionally, don't miss a chance to support our local schools through the West Linn-Wilsonville Education Foundation by joining in the fun and fitness at the Tonkin "For the Love of Schools" Run on Sunday, June 5th. The run is a fun family friendly event that truly complements the Education Foundation Count Me In campaign that by then will be in its final week. You can find more information at the websites for these opportunities. Count Me In!" information is available at http:// "For the Love of Schools" information can be found at Thank you!

    Hoot ‘n’ Scoot Was A Scorching Success! What an amazing day we had last Friday at the Hoot ‘n’ Scoot Fun Run! A bit warm, but still awesome! Class after class, our students and staff made their way around the Forest Loop and Playground course, rewarded for their efforts with a Hoot ‘n’ Scoot medal, water bottle and well-earned popsicle. Our students and sponsors also stepped up for our school raising over $21,000! Their efforts will be rewarded as a portion of the fitness/play equipment is being installed around the Forest Loop this week! Thank you so much to all of our sponsors, volunteers and PTA for helping to make this event possible. A special thank you to Tim Tawa, Owliver, Drew Carney and Double Dog Dare U Events for their incredible efforts to make this a special and memorable day – we heard from many students that it was their favorite day of the year!

    THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS In the month of April alone, nearly 900 hours of volunteer support were generously shared with the staff and students of Trillium. Across the school year, over 6,500 hours have been logged into our volunteer registration system. Volunteers provide support in a great variety of ways: classroom help, reading with students, preparing and hosting tastings from our school garden, accompanying classes for work in our school garden and around our grounds, Forest Flyers, library, art literacy, field trips, book fair, special events such as Backyard BBQ, Harvest Happenings, Pizza Bingo, and 5th grade promotion and much more. Be watching for emails from Trillium Creek PTA or follow the link below if you are looking for an opportunity to volunteer. The sign up wiki, sponsored by our PTA, is easy to use. Our next event around the corner is our Field Day. While you are checking your calendars to see if you are able to join in the fun on those days, please save the date, Thursday, May 26th. All who have volunteered in some way this school year are invited to join us at 2:15 that day for some scrumptious desserts and a chance to chat with teachers and other volunteers. We will supervise your students on the playground for you while you enjoy. So, here’s a big THANK YOU for the volunteer support that makes Trillium an exceptional place for our students!

      You Can’t Take It With You This warm-hearted, hilarious play is about a creatively kooky family, the Sycamores, who simply do what they want to do, and nothing that they don't want to do. The patriarch of the family, Grandpa Sycamore, spends his time collecting stamps, catching snakes, going to commencements, and dispensing wisdom. He quit the business world thirty-five years prior and never looked back. Surrounding Grandpa is his daughter Penny and her husband Paul, their dance-crazy daughter Essie and her xylophone-playing husband Ed, Irish maid Rheba and her immigrant boyfriend Donald, crazy Russian dance teacher Mr. Kohlenkhov, and other creative characters.
