Shady Creek is just over the horizon with the dates of March 8th-12th highlighted on our calendar!  Sixth grade is ready to get out of the classroom and apply all that they have learned in the new environment of Shady Creek Outdoor School.


We will be holding a Shady Creek Parent Night on Thursday, February 11th at 6:00 PM in the cafeteria.  Health forms and other paperwork can be turned in that night.


If you would like to make a donation towards Shady Creek t-shirts and sweatshirts for an Egling student who is not able to afford one, please contact Mindy Lederer at Egling or by e-mail at  T-shirts are $15 and sweatshirts are $30.

Research shows that students who learn in a positive environment have a better school experience — they enjoy higher test scores, learn new skills at a faster rate, and are overall happier at school. CUSD will be celebrating “Random Acts of Kindness Week” February 8-12, 2016. Research shows that “Practicing kindness is more than just a nice thing to do; it’s also beneficial to overall well-being.” Activities at Colusa schools will include making positive posters and bookmarks for the libraries, compliment day and many others.

For information and ideas on how to include this at home, you can go to


On February 10th, Egling Middle School (grades 6-8) and Colusa High School will be hosting assemblies featuring Mike Smith, a motivational speaker, action sports personality and Founder/Executive Director of two nationally recognized nonprofit youth organizations. His message to the youth is powerful and life changing.


Parents and community members are invited to hear Mike speak at 6:30 pm at Egling Middle School cafeteria, on Wednesday, February 10th.  Share the excitement that your students will be bringing home from school. For more information about Mike Smith go to:



Please remember to follow rules of the parking lot when dropping off and picking up students: One lane is denoted for moving traffic, the other for parked traffic. Pull all the way forward so we can clear traffic off of Webster St. Proceed at a slow rate of speed through the parking lot. If you need to get out of your car, please park in a designated spot, do not park in the middle of the driveway.
