Thank you for a successful Taste of Autumn!

What a great party and fundraiser! Our 'Taste of Autumn 2017' wine event on October 7th was so fun as we learned about several wine varieties as well as wine tastings. Great music, plenty of appetizers, and a beautiful evening in a farm setting beyond compare. Mark your calendars for next year on October 6, 2018! Thank you for supporting Canby Ed. Foundation and its dedication to our Canby schools and students.

Audio/Paperback books awardedto BPMS

CEF was pleased recently to award Baker Middle School their grant request to purchase audio and paperback books for student use. This is just one of many grants funded this school year! Teachers Cindy Note and James Kelly remarked that “The collections BPMS acquired via the grant allows students with wide ranging reading skills and abilities to gain strategic skills, and interests. These books and audios have increased student interest and students are now looking forward to reading time!"

CEF grants expand and enrich learning in Canby schools!

The CEF organization works to enhance and enrich educational opportunities via our granting program. These expanded opportunities are made possible by generous donors and benefactors who want to enhance and enrich students' opportunities. We receive grant requests from teachers who are able to broaden their students learning and experiences via CEF grants. Thank you donors for your generosity in supporting the grant program!

Audio and Paperback Books Benefiting Struggling Readers


BPMS teachers Cindy Note, Anne Huggins, Will Greenleaf and James Kelly submitted a successful CEF grant that will provide audiobooks and paperbacks to support their struggling readers' needs. One solution was to find relevant, interesting books at their level that can both support and challenge their students. Knowing that reading and listening together allows students to hear strong interpretive reading, and learn critical listening skills was a great incentive to request grant funding from CEF. The value is that they are introduced to new vocabulary, new genres, and new dialects or accents. These teachers found that when the students in these reading classes have consistent support, they then turned to finding books to read even when the audiobook version was not available. We know that our grant for $429.00 will make a very significant difference for these students and those to come through these classes.

Lee Elementary students celebrate their love of reading!


Lee Elementary students celebrated their “Love of Reading” month in February by reading The One and Only Ivan as a “Book in Common”. As part of the celebration, all families in the school read the same book, at the same time. Those with a home language of Spanish are provided a copy in Spanish. This project enhances everyday learning by stressing the importance of literacy beyond the school day by reading as a family at home. Families have shared how much they have enjoyed this activity and hope to continue in the future!
