We were recently honored to have Oregon Governor Kate Brown visit our early learning Ready, Set, Go! program at Bilquist Elementary. Many thanks to the North Clackamas School District and Superintendent Matt Utterback for hosting this visit! Ready, Set, Go! is a unique early childhood program that is showing strong results for children’s social-emotional learning and readiness for Kindergarten.
In addition to discussing the approach and outcomes of R,S,G, with staff from MFS and NCSD, Governor Brown reached out directly to families to get their impression of their experience, commenting afterwards: “These parents clearly love this program”.
Last Thursday, MFS Hunger Relief programs held a Vietnamese cooking class at West Powellhurst, led by MFS Hunger Relief AmeriCorps member Thu Le, and two Vietnamese community members. They taught parents, students and volunteers how to make Vietnamese salad rolls and peanut sauce, sticky coconut rice, and a Vietnamese chicken and vegetable soup. 🥥🍲🍴
