Deschutes CFB donates Get Oregonized to schools

Third and 4th grade students in Redmond School District will be learning about Oregon agriculture and history out of brand new textbooks thanks to the generosity of the Deschutes County Farm Bureau.

On May 8, the group donated 248 Get Oregonized student history books to be placed for use in third and fourth grade classrooms. Tom McCall elementary school teacher, Dawn Alexander, also a member for the Deschutes County Farm Bureau, helped make the arrangements with the schools.

“I am so appreciative of the Deschutes County Farm Bureau in providing teachers with current information for our classrooms,” said Alexander. “These books are great for teaching 3rd and 4th grade science and social studies standards, as well as, for introducing our students to Oregon agriculture and how important this industry is to them, our state, our nation, and the world.”

The text is designed to help students understand and appreciate the rich history, people, and natural resources that shaped the state of Oregon. The book includes maps, illustrations, graphs, and historical photographs that complement the easy to read and understand text.

Great job, Deschutes County Farm Bureau!
