Lake Oswego Schools Foundation supports teachers

We believe a great education begins and ends with great teachers. More teachers mean more individualized instruction, more inspiring electives and a more diverse curriculum for every student in our district. With your help, we can overcome reductions in state funding and keep Lake Oswego schools the very best in the state and the pride of our community.

  • Hi Mr. Oakes, Just wanted to let you know that I got my first Anatomy and Physiology exam back today and I scored in the top 6 of the 125 students in the class! So far so good.
    Emily Schoenhe, Lakeridge graduate
  • I just wanted to let you know that I am changing my major from Biology to Human Physiology because I loved the subject so much in high school. I am taking an introductory level course this term, and everything we're covering is material we covered in your class! A couple weeks ago, we used sphygmomanometers and I was one of the only people in the class who knew how to use them, thanks to your class! I am really excited. Thank you for everything!
    Laurie Fullmer, Lakeridge graduate
  • Mr. Oakes, I am currently studying to get my certification as a Wilderness EMT basic. I just wanted to let you know how much taking human physiology & anatomy last year has helped! I didn't realize how much I had learned until we started studying the heart in class. I really feel like part of the reason for my success thus far is because of your class. I just wanted to say thank you and I hope you are having a great year!
