PTC Meeting, Monday, October 24th, 7:00-8:00 p.m.
Please join us for the Parent Teacher Club (PTC) meeting Monday, October 24th in the Dexter McCarty Middle School Library from 7:00-8:00 p.m.

Participation in our PTC has fallen off over the years, leaving gaps in the services the organization has provided for Dexter McCarty.  We hope that this restart will lead to increased parent participation for all events and activities, as well as serve as a conduit to inform our community about school and district information.

At this meeting, we will discuss PTC Bylaws and elect PTC Board positions for the 2016-2017 school year. In addition, the newly elected board will discuss activities and events for the upcoming school year. 

We hope to see you there!

Oregon Senator Ron Wyden Visits McCarty!
Oregon Senator Ron Wyden participated in a 'Town Hall' session with an attentive McCarty student group Tuesday, October 18th. Senator Wyden captivated the students by answering many relevant questions about our current political process, both in Oregon, and on the National level. Principal John George arranged the visit with the Senator during his time representing our State as Oregon's Principal of the Year. 8th Grade Social Studies Teacher, Brett Matson, prepared his students well; they spoke articulately and confidently with the Senator.  Thank you Senator Wyden for taking your time to talk with our students! Check out our facebook page for more photos!
