Yearbooks: Now is your chance to buy your child a yearbook! The yearbook will be full of fun Cal Young memories and photos from events throughout the year. The order deadline is TODAY! 


The cost for a yearbook is $25. Scholarships are available! If you would like to support others by sponsoring a student in need, we encourage you to make a yearbook donation to cover a scholarship. Purchases, scholarship requests, and donations can all be done through SchoolPay or contacting Ms. Alexis at or calling 541-790-6414. 


Yearbooks will be distributed in class on Tuesday, June 11th. Students will have opportunities throughout the day for dedicated yearbook signing time. 


Coffee with Principal Mitchell: Wednesdays throughout the month of May parents are invited to join our principal, Mr. Mitchell for coffee and a quick parent meeting. This is an informal series of meetings designed to give parents a chance to discuss Cal Young and get updates from the principal as well as other key staff. These meetings will serve to replace our May PTO meeting. 


CYMS Spring Track: Thursday, championship qualifiers for Cal Young will travel to Willamette High School to compete in the 4J District Championship Track Meet. All eight 4J middle schools are represented and will compete for the district title. Come support our cougars as they aim to not bring home just one district title, but are aiming to win all six divisions! Field events begin at noon with the first race of the day at 1:00pm.

8th Grade Updates: 

Promotion: Attention 8th grade families: Please be on the look out on Monday for an email from the Cal Young 8th grade promotion team! This email will cover details like the schedule of events through the remainder of the year with a detailed schedule for the final two days of school, volunteer opportunities, permission slips, ticket procedures, and more!


Baby Picture: Parents, please submit a toddler photo of your 8th grade student. These photos will be used for the 8th grade promotion and their promotion breakfast slide show. Submit your student’s photo HERE! As of now we are missing pictures for over half of the class. Deadline to submit photos is May 31st. 


         Preferred Name: Promotion materials are coming together and we need your help to ensure we get things right! Our default for students is to use their full legal name for all upcoming promotion materials. However, we recognize that some students and their families may have a preference to use a name other than their full legal. If you would like your student’s name altered for promotion materials or how their name is read when they cross the stage, please email no later than May 31. 

            Examples: Christopher Mitchell to Chris Mitchell  | Destiny Cyrus to Miley Cyrus | Christopher Kutcher to Ashton Kutcher | Alecia Moore to P!nk | Matthew Myers to Matt Myers



From Sheldon:


Sheldon Open House: Join the staff at Sheldon for their 8th Grade Open House on Tuesday, May 14th from 5:30-7:00. The Open House is a drop-in style event to gather information on all forms of activities your student can participate in next year!
