In the 2016 Best-Performing Large Cities list, Salem, Ore. was ranked 45 out of 200 cities; 27 rankings above its highest ranking in previous years.

Salem's hard work is paying off," said Kristin Retherford, Salem's Urban Development Director.

The 2016 Milken Institute Best-Performing Cities Index ranks U.S. metropolitan areas by how well they are creating and sustaining jobs and economic growth. The components include job, wage and salary, and technology growth. Data on each city is available at www.best-cities.org.

Kuebler/Commercial Update

COMMERCIAL STREET SE/KUEBLER BOULEVARD SE WIDENING IMPROVEMENTS

 

Downloadable file: Project Map

Striping operations for the Commercial Street SE / Kuebler Boulevard SE widening improvements are scheduled to occur of Friday, October 28, 2016. This work will begin at noon and continue through the remainder of the day. The work is dependent upon dry pavement conditions.

Motorists should use caution as this work will require traffic shifting and lane closures on both Commercial Street SE and Kuebler Boulevard SE. Flaggers will be present to control traffic. This work will create traffic congestion within the area and motorists should expect delays. If possible, we suggest motorists use alternate routes.

This project was made possible due to savings from the Keep Salem Moving! Streets and Bridges Bond, passed by Salem voters in November 2008. This project was added to the bond by then Council President and current SGNA Chair T.J. Sullivan.

Please contact Will Kuenzi, PE, PLS, Project Engineer, at wkuenzi@cityofsalem.net or 503 588 6211 for additional information.

RIVER ROAD S CLOSURE BEGINNING AUGUST 13, 2016

RIVER ROAD S CLOSURE BEGINNING AUGUST 13, 2016

Downloadable file: PROJECT_LOCATION_MAP-BIKE-PED_DETOUR-Phase_2.pdf
Downloadable file: PROJECT_LOCATION_MAP-Phase_2.pdf

River Road S will be closed from Owens Street S to Minto Island Road S beginning August 13, 2016, to allow for improvements to the slope along a section of River Road S. The closure may last up to nine days.

This section of River Road S has a number of trees along the crest of the slope that have become undermined, and could fall on the roadway. The work involves removing trees and brush from the top and face of the slope, and removing unstable loose rock and soil. This project is similar to the work completed last year just north of the current site.

Vehicular traffic will be detoured along a route that follows Commercial Street SE, Liberty Street S, Madrona Avenue SE, and Croisan Creek Road S (see attached map).

Pedestrians and bicyclists who need a way around the road closure to Minto-Brown Island Park may take a temporary alternate route across the railroad at Kearney Street S, and along the Willamette Slough.

Pedestrians and bicyclists taking this route need to be cautious in crossing the railroad tracks, and should be advised that the alternate route is a gravel road to the park (see attached map).

Sumpter Parent Teacher Club Notes

Sumpter Parent Teacher Club Notes

June 7, 2016

 

1. Welcome and Introductions: Attendance: Brittnay Springer, Jenny Hannant, Rene Tyson, Alicia Matson, Jennifer Koenig, Melissa Wellard, Ginger Stover, Jessica McAllister, Faith Branson, Casie Mendez, Janet Prats, Roe Ochoa

2. Approval of May's Meeting Minutes

Jenny Hannant motioned to approve, Jennifer Koenig 2nd, passed.

 

3. Treasurer's Report

    We end the year allocating funds so that teachers can anticipate the funds that they will have available for their classrooms next school year. There was much conversation about the cost of field trips.  Alicia Matson plans to create a folder detailing the costs of different field trips classes have taken in the past so that they can plan accurately for future trips.  Parents brainstormed ways to make field trips more affordable (Cost of bus rental & driver is a major expense but it is against district policy to let parents and kids carpool).  Janet said that she would check into the following with the school district:  If a parent has a license to drive a bus, could they volunteer their time to drive for field trips?  Other ideas: Bring experts into the classroom for an “in house” field trip.  If you have more ideas—please reply via email.

 

Each of the expenditures that needed to be allocated for the beginning of next year were discussed (10 categories) and Casie Mendez motioned to approve the budget for 2016-2017 school year, Ginger Stover 2nd, passed.

 

Childcare for monthly meetings                $200

Staff Appreciation                                   $250

Printing for new year packets                     $100

Climate committee                                  $400

Artist in Residence                                 $2500

Field Trips                                             $7400

Curriculium- Moby Max/Weekly Readers $2600

Classroom accounts                                $8400 ($400 each)

Music/PE Classrooms                            $400 ($200 each)

Jog-a-thon                                             $1500

 

   

4. Fund Requests: NONE

   

 

5. Scheduling for 2016-2017

 

Schedule Jog-a-thon:  After discussion, Jennifer Koenig Motioned to hold the Jog-a-thon on October 7th, Casie Mendez 2nd , passed.

 

Schedule Parent Teacher Club Meeting times for next school year: After discussion and a desire for more parents to have the opportunity to attend it was decided to begin next year’s meetings at 6:45pm the 2nd Tuesday of the month.  Jennifer Koenig reminded us that it is only eight nights for the entire school year and the decisions that are made directly affect the students’ quality of experience in elementary school.

 

6. Vote on getting a private bank account
   

    Discussion: Up until now, the PTC has been running its money through Sumpter (and the school district).  Systems for accountability enforced at a district level are very lengthy. (For example, if a parent purchases food or games for a PTC event then submits a reimbursement request, eight different people must approve the reimbursement before the parent receives a check from the district. The approximate turn-around time has been between 6-8 weeks.)  If Sumpter’s PTC operates its own bank account, then reimbursements can be submitted and dispersed much faster.  There is very minimal cost to the PTC for operating a bank account—however, the treasurer’s hours are increased significantly. Alicia Matson (Treasurer) requested that if the parent club begins to net over 50k/year that they hire outside help.  Jennifer Koenig motions to move PTC money to a private account operated by the PTC.  Alicia Matson 2nds, motion passed. The people who have access to the new bank account will be: President Jennifer Koenig, Vice President Jenny Hannant and Treasurer Alicia Matson.  Parents have been asking about obtaining a card reader so that credit cards can be used for making purchases at PTC sponsored events.  Obtaining a card reader for a non-profit organization adds additional fees that will have to be researched and voted upon in the future.

 

7. Upcoming Events : School BBQ June 8th, Volunteer Appreciation June 9th in the Library 4-4:30, Kinder Graduation June 10th at 2:30, 5th Grade Graduation June 13th at 9:45am, Field Day June 14th

 

8. Other Business:

Ro Ochoa representing 5th grade teachers thanked the parent club and the school for supporting the 5th grade outdoor school this year.  “We couldn’t have done it without you. It was such a great time.  Thank you for your support.” PTC thanked Ro and his leadership in providing such an awesome time where the students can learn so much about science and the outdoors in a unique environment.

 

Rene Tyson and Casie Mendez reported back after speaking with parents in regards to building a new cafeteria for the school:  There is a strong interest in keeping lunchtime in the classrooms.  However, there is also concern among parents that something must change in regards to the short time that students have in the mornings to eat breakfast and how disruptive breakfast in the classroom seems to be to morning routines.  There is some interest in beginning fundraising for a new gym.  Parents and Teachers--please email the parent club if you have ideas for projects/needs for which you would like to see the PTC raise money (in addition to the PTC’s stated purpose, which is to fund field trips and the artist-in-residence).  Janet Prats said that it looks like a bond measure may be coming in the next couple of years to support Salem/Keizer’s building needs and if PTC wants to build a new gym, it may be a good time to start planning and possibly work together with the district to share funding efforts.  

 

New playground set to be installed this summer.

 

Concerns about Tuesday morning assemblies were voiced.  Mrs. Prats said that the assemblies will be a part of the normal routine next year and that changes will be made to improve them.

 

8. School Report:

Next year Sumpter will have a new school counselor, as Gloria Flagger is retiring --We love you Gloria! Thank you for being such a wonderful part of our school!

An additional 4th grade classroom will be added next year.

An ESOL teacher will also be hired.

Sumpter Parent Teacher Club Notes

Hi Sumpter Community,

We had a pretty exciting meeting this week. After your help with raising funds this year, it was approved to purchase and install a new playground structure! We are very excited to be adding this piece along with 2 other pieces that the district will be installing in the bark chip area over the Summer. The Students will have a wonderful surprise to play on when they return to school! Thank you so much for your contributions that have helped make this possible!

We have a final total on what was raised at our offsite auction. We raised $11,959.35!!! This is fantastic! Again, thank you so much to all of those who helped put this on and all of you who attended and donated to this event.

Next month at our PTC meeting we will be taking nominations for PTC board members. Anyone that would like to run for:

President

Vice President

Treasurer

Secretary

Please come to our May meeting, May 10th at 5pm in the media room to put your name in for nomination.

A few other things to watch out for in the coming weeks:

Sumpter Parent Teacher Club Notes

April 12, 2016

Attendance:

Erika Kerr, Rene Tyson, Casie Mendez, Bethea Glibe, Paula Phelps, Alicia Matson, Faith Branson, Brittany Springer, Jenny Hannant, Jane Morris, Chris Cain, Katie Metzker, Jennifer Koenig, Crista Golden-Phillips

 

1. Welcome and Introductions

 

2. Approval of March Meeting Minutes

Alicia Matson motioned to approve. Motion passed.

 

3. Treasurer's Report

            Each year, PTC spends between $30k-35k.  This year we have made $38,689 and should end the month with $48k.  After Sock-Hop, we should be at about $56k for the year. We plan to pre-fund  next year’s expenses by leaving about 36k for next year. (Most of the year’s expenses happen at the beginning of the year and many of our fundraisers happen at the end of the year.) This leaves about 20k surplus.

           

            Playground presentation

            Guest Paula Phelps with Salem/Keizer safety and security came to speak to us about our options in working with the district to install playground equipment. The district is providing 2 new pieces to replace the current items in the bark chips and ptc proposes to add a large climbing wall/slide to the playground.  If we partner with the school district and have the pieces shipped and installed at the same time, then we would save on shipping and installation costs, as well as receive a 15% discount on the piece.

 

Estimated cost to purchase in install the new piece is $20k-$23k.  There was a discussion for how to cover this cost.  One of the ways discussed is that instead of classrooms receiving $500 per class next year, they go back to receiving $300 as in previous years—if extra money is needed.  After much discussion PTC took a vote.

 

Playground will be installed this summer.

 

4. Fund Requests

            Playground funds

            Rene Tyson motioned to approve up to $23k for the purchase and installation of the new climbing wall/slide.  Jenny Hannant seconded.  Motion passed.

 

5. Updates

            Offsite Auction

            Big success!!  Thank you EVERYONE for helping!  Net proceeds from Auction are: $11,959.35.

           

            Yearbook: email address to send picture for the yearbook

sumpteryearbook@gmail.com

Look for year book order form. Price $10 pre-order.  Limited amount will be available for $15 if you do not pre-order. You must turn in order form by May 5th.  Please continue to send in photos no later than May 5th.

 

6. Upcoming Events

           

            Teacher Appreciation Week(May 2-6)

            Look for sign-up genius (via email) to help with meals, etc.

 

            Spring FUNraiser(May 13)

            Sock-Hop 50’s theme!  Music will alternate between 50’s and current. Look for flyers with auction items.  Look for sign-up genius to help with different parts of the event.  This year dining will be easier.  Many more tables will be set up.

 

Please contribute to classroom baskets!  They will be picked up and wrapped in 3 weeks.

Basket wrapping party!  May 4th, 5th 6th from 9:30-noon.  Email parent club if you plan to come, or just show up!

 

 

            Discussion about fundraisers in general:

            Jane Morris (PE) spoke about how the Jump Rope for Heart campaign was fun for the students but that she didn’t want to distract from Sumpter’s fundraising efforts for our own community.  So there was some discussion as to whether or not to participate in Outside fundraisers such as American Heart Association, etc in the future.

 

Sumpter parent club has raised money for really great things at our school!  The chrome books are used daily, the garden project was a success, field trips were provided for, and much more!

 

In general, Sumpter trys to keep our fundraisers to 3 major ones/year.  The major ones are: Sock-hop, jog-a-thon and Outside Auction. This year, other fundraising efforts included wreath/candle sales for 5th grade outdoor school, box tops, plus a couple more.

 

7. Needs:

Rene Tyson and Casey Mendez are forming a committee for the purpose of raising $250,000 to build a new cafeteria/gym/multi-purpose room for our school. If you are interested in brainstorming and/or implementing fundraising activities for this new facility please send an email to: renetyson@gmail.com

           

8. School Report

552 students.  Some moved away but we have added 70 since December. 4th & 5th grade classrooms have 31-34 students. 1st grade has 30.  At 560 students, Principal will request another teacher for next year.

 

                9. Other Business

            Next month bring nominations for officer positions for next year.  Vote and installation of new officers will happen at June’s meeting.

 

Rene Tyson requested that next meeting there be a discussion of the cost of PTC maintaining & running it’s own finances instead of going through the school district for reimbursements and depositing monies raised. 

 

 

SALEM IS CELEBRATING 40 YEARS AS "TREE CITY USA"!

SALEM IS CELEBRATING 40 YEARS AS "TREE CITY USA"!


News Release from City of Salem
Posted on FlashAlert: April 15th, 2016 3:50 PM

To celebrate the City's 40th year as a Tree City USA, becoming a "Sterling City" with ten TCUSA Growth Awards, and to inspire greater appreciation for the urban forest in Salem, a full year of events has been planned, commencing in April 2016 and concluding during Arbor Week in 2017--a Year of the Tree!

Events will include a photo contest, tree plantings, tree trivia night, monthly tree articles, benefits of trees presentations, book readings, lectures by tree experts, and tree walks. Information about trees is also on display in the Library's Peace Plaza windows during the months of April and October. Participants can register for an online "passport" to record their participation in each of the events they attend and to be entered into a raffle for prizes. To keep up with the latest tree events go to http://www.cityofsalem.net/TreeCityUSA and click on the event calendar tab.

Salem, along with the other cities around the world, recognizes the importance of trees in our communities. Today we know that trees create shade, cooling our homes and cities during hot summer months. A tree's shade also cools streams and rivers, providing better water quality for people and aquatic life. Trees are also important because they help clean pollution from the air and water, and reduce stormwater run-off.

On April 25, 2016, the Mayor will proclaim the Year of the Tree and present awards to the winners of Salem's "City Tree, City Beautiful" poster contest: Karen Kruger (adult category), Hanna Cruzen (high school category), Aspen Deconcini (middle school category), and Sophia Miller (elementary school category). The City will also receive recognition from Oregon Department of Forestry for achieving this important 40-year milestone.

City staff will have several informational booths regarding flood mitigation efforts, floodplain mapping, flood insurance, updates to the Stormwater Master Plan, Salem's Community Alert System, details about Salem's flood emergency warning systems, and ways to predict and plan for impending flood events.
