    KAISER PROVIDES MT. SCOTT WITH FACILITY FACELIFT

    Mt. Scott Learning Center’s facility received an “extreme makeover” on January 18th, courtesy of more than 100 Kaiser Permanente employee volunteers.

    Kaiser selected Mt. Scott as one of its project sites for the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service. Employee teams painted, cleaned, organized, built planter boxes, and landscaped throughout the day to provide Mt. Scott’s building and grounds with an amazing facelift.

    MT. SCOTT HOSTS NEIGHBORHOOD TREE PLANTING EVENT

    Mt. Scott Learning Center was excited and honored to host Friends of Trees’ Creston-Kenilworth/Foster-Powell/Reed/Mt. Scott-Arleta neighborhood-wide tree planting event on Saturday, January 16th.

    Mt. Scott served as the “base camp” for approximately 200 volunteers that met at the school, sorted into planting crews, and planted 215 trees around the neighborhoods. The volunteers all returned to Mt. Scott for a potluck lunch.

    STUDENTS GET STARSTRUCK ON WAY TO FIELD TRIP

    You never know who Mt. Scott students will run into in Portland.

    Yes, that’s actor/comedian Adam Sandler posing for a photo recently with a group of Mt. Scott students headed to a field trip to the Oregon Zoo. The students spotted Sandler and fellow actor/comedian Rob Schneider getting their morning coffee following a performance at the Schnitzer Concert Hall (which also included actor/comedians David Spade and Norm MacDonald).

    Nothing like starting off your day with a celebrity meet and greet.
