Adams Update 9/24 – Jog-a-Thon, Health Clinics

Thank you to all who came out to celebrate the Adams at the Party on the Playground last Friday.  It was a beautiful night with friends, food and fun.  Hooray for Adams!

Here comes the Jog-A-Thon! Join us on Friday, September 29th, from 1:15-2:00, for our annual fall fun-raiser where students run around the track and raise money for Adams. Our goal this year is to raise $20,000 and once we reach that milestone, Principal Kevin will camp out in front of the school for a night. How awesome is that?


The Jog-A-Thon is a great way to get involved at Adams and there are plenty of different ways to do just that. Go to 2017 Annual Adams Jog-A-Thon to sign up for the spots that work for you. We encourage all families to attend and be part of this fun-filled afternoon. It is a great way to see just how amazingly awesome our students and staff are, spend time with other Adams families, and enjoy a beautiful Friday afternoon.Email your Jog-A-Thon co-chairs Alexis ( and Katie ( with any questions.

Eugene 4J’s Elementary Math Curriculum

LearnZillion✚Number Talks✚Games

What’s new?
Complex tasks, flexible mental math strategies, and collaborative games
provide a balanced approach to mathematics. LearnZillion, Number Talks, and game resources
have all been adopted as resources for our teachers.
LearnZillion K-5 Digital Math Curriculum
Worthwhile math tasks are presented to build concepts and skills as well as encourage critical
thinking and problem-solving. The majority of LearnZillion lessons are crafted to create “productive
struggle”. Productive struggle helps build perseverance and supports students to create strong
connections from previous knowledge to new concepts. In each unit, students have 2-4 Key
Concepts to master. A set of lessons will give students a chance to explore, practice and apply
these concepts. Key Concepts ultimately culminate in students applying their knowledge to a
real-world situation.

Dozens of games that support math and just require a deck of cards can be found HERE

4J, PeaceHealth Partner on School-Based Health Centers

Eugene School District 4J and PeaceHealth Medical Group (PHMG) are partnering to sponsor two existing school-based health centers at Churchill and North Eugene High School.

The new partnership allows the district to continue providing easily accessible and much needed primary care and medical services to its students. The school district is providing the clinic space and support staffing, while PHMG is providing medical staffing, medical oversight and facilitation of the billing of medical services.

4J’s school-based health centers have been available to students and their siblings since 1986, providing physicals and immunizations and treating illnesses, injuries and ongoing health problems. More recently, the centers also provide mental health counseling through community partnerships including Lane County Mental Health.

Recent state changes to health center requirements led the district to partner with an outside medical provider for medical services and billing. The new partnership with PeaceHealth makes it possible for 4J students to continue accessing quality healthcare services in a school-based setting.

Moving forward, the centers will be staffed by a nurse practitioner provided by PeaceHealth and a health assistant and health clerk who are part of the district’s staff.

The centers opened under the new partnership this fall. The centers take insurance and the Oregon Health Plan, and will not turn away any student needing treatment.

To make an appointment, please call the North Eugene health center at 541-790-4445 or the Churchill health center at 541-790-5227.
