The Alameda School Auction will be held on Saturday March 8th. Doors open at 5pm at the Oregon Convention Center, Northeast Martin Luther King Junior Boulevard. School foundations such as Alameda Schools were created to help fill in financial gaps and give financial resources to the school that the school district alone cannot provide. Through the foundation, educational needs such as new teaching positions are funded. The other school being sponsored by Paulson Coletti Trial Attorneys PC is Forest Park Auction is scheduled for April 18 at the Multnomah Athletic Club at 1849 SW Salmon Avenue, Portland, OR 97205. The theme for this event is "A Night in Monte Carlo."
"Due to state budget cuts, aiding our public schools has become essential to help support teachers, staff and students; "says Jane Paulson of Paulson Trial Attorneys PC. "Our schools need proper funds, great teachers and volunteer support to help keep our schools strong. We hope Portland Public Schools will reach an agreement with teachers so the strike, set to begin February 20th, can be avoided."
Oregon's largest school district could be on the verge of its first-ever strike. Teachers sent in a notice to the state communicating a walkout date of February 20th. Both sides have said they would hope to reach a negotiated agreement before then.
"We are parents with children in these public schools who value education, the enrichment of our children and supporting our community." says John Coletti of Paulson Trial Attorneys PC.
