Be a Reading Buddy

Rose City Park’s Reading Buddy Program will begin again soon for all Roseway Heights 1st through 8th grade students who could benefit from a friend and coach to help them become a more confident, successful reader. Buddy Program participants are parents, grandparents, university students, and community volunteers wanting to make a difference in the life of a child. Buddies read for half an hour a week with their student or students if they have time to work with more than one. The program can accommodate most schedules, so consider coming to an orientation and becoming a Reading Buddy.

Contact Lindy Delf (503-284-4115) with any questions or to sign up to be a buddy.

Big Box Proposal Withdrawn

The October land use hearing for the Big Box proposal has been cancelled – SmartCentres has withdrawn their conditional use application for developing the site. Roseway and Madison South will now begin the process of visioning for a sustainable future. This includes a collaborative effort between the landowner/developer, the neighborhoods, and the community.
