Oregon Governor John Kitzhaber is visiting Pine Ridge Elementary this morning.

 

Kitzhaber spokesperson Amy Wwojcicki says the governor is going to meet the staff and read with the new kindergartners, to welcome them to the class of 2025.

 

Wojcicki says the Governor is making a point of his initiative to raise education in Oregon:  "The Governor has set a very ambitious goal of getting 100% completion rate by the class of 2025, and so as the school year is kicking off, he's going out there and getting into classrooms and not only meeting teachers and parents, but also dropping by and getting to know the students that are part of that goal."

 

She says the Governor's only stop in the area will be to Pine Ridge Elementary; Superintendent Ron Wilkinson will be accompanying him to the classroom.
