Wildcat singers chosen for All-State Honors

Five Wilsonville High School students were chosen to participate in the Oregon Music Educators Association All-State Honor Choir. Each chosen student auditioned for the honor along with hundreds of other students from around the state.

WHS will send the following students to the honor choir: Keaton Whitaker, tenor; Izzy Ochocki, soprano; Ellie Lauthner, soprano 2; Kylee Kamikawa, soprano; and Aubrey Slaughter, soprano.

Slaughter also was chosen for the American Choral Directors Association’s All-Northwest Honor Choir. She will join 20 other Oregon singers at a special concert with students from all across the northwestern states at a special concert in Seattle in March.

Robotics on display at Wilsonville library

Volunteer as a SMART reader

Volunteers are needed to read with children in Clackamas County. Working through SMART (Start Making a Reader Today), volunteers work at various sites in Clackamas County. Adults are needed to spend one hour per week reading one-on-one with children from pre-kindergarten through third grade, helping them build reading skills and develop a lifelong love of reading.

SMART is also seeking site coordinators to supervise reading sessions and coordinate with teachers and volunteers. The time commitment for a coordinator position is between two and four hours per week.

For more information, including SMART sites, contact the local SMART office at 971-634-1616 or look online at getSMARToregon.org.
