Hand Drawn Lettering Breakfast Morning For Card, Print, Poster Stock  Illustration - Illustration of coffee, card: 143887289

We have a date for our belated annual AGIS Holiday Staff Appreciation Breakfast!

We are planning the breakfast for Thursday, January 28th. While we aren't able to do our usual breakfast with dishes brought in by our wonderful AGIS families, we are working with the cafeteria to provide a boxed breakfast for the teachers and staff members. In addition, we will be providing individually boxed pastries and coffee is being donated by the Big Yellow Mug. In order to make this happen, we are asking for monetary contributions to cover the cost of the food.

There are two ways to contribute to this effort.

1. If you child is currently in the hybrid model, you can send money in with your child - cash or checks made out to AGIS PTA.

2. You can contribute via Venmo @AGIS-PTA. Please put staff breakfast in the notes.


Please submit all contributions by January 26th.

Attention 6th Grade Families!

posted Nov 10, 2020, 11:12 AM by Web Coordinator AGIS PTA

Bend-La Pine Schools :: Welcome Incoming 6th Graders!
Hello 6th Grade Families!

As you are all probably aware, 6th grade teachers do not usually have Room Parents.  However, during this wacky year, we thought that it would be helpful to our teachers and families if we had a contact person for each class.  Our goal for this contact person is to help communicate information to families such as PTA events, activities or projects that only pertain to certain grade levels, etc.  Our specific goal for 6th grade Room Parents was to simply help communicate information out to families since there are not necessarily parties.  This will be especially helpful when we get closer to the end of the year and start to plan our 6th grade celebration.

Below you will find the contact information pdf for the 6th grade Room Parents.  If you have not done so already and would like to "opt in" to this communication, please email the Room Parent for your child's homeroom teacher (If there is not one listed, please email the switch teacher's Room Parent.  If there are more than one listed, please include both in your email.)  Please provide an email address that the Room Parent can use to contact you.  

If you have any questions, please email our Room Parent chair - Erica Gallagher at

Thank you so much for your help as we try to help facilitate communication!
