**Please note: After the June 2016 customer re-enrollment period, customers who did not re-link their card with a nonprofit on Community Rewards were dropped from the system on July 1, 2016.  Please follow the above instructions to reenroll if you initially enrolled before June 2016.  If you log onto your account, you can confirm if you are linked to Cheldelin or not.


  • Oregon law requires that students attending public school are current on certain vaccinations or have completed a valid exemption.  Cheldelin requires proof of vaccination for all students.  Please see the office if you have any questions regarding vaccinations.

Office Volunteers

  • Are you looking for a volunteer opportunity here at Cheldelin? Want to be in the loop about what’s going on at school? Have a free two hours per week? The Cheldelin office is seeking parents who can commit to a regular 2 hour shift once per week (or you can share a shift with someone else and only work every other week).
  • Office volunteers help us with phone and counter traffic and do a wide variety of other tasks that help keep the office running smoothly. In return, you get to keep your finger on the pulse of Cheldelin.
  • If you are interested in this opportunity, contact Mrs. Henson, our Volunteer Coordinator at Chelsea.Henson@Corvallis.k12.or.us

The Cheldelin Parent Organization (CPO) would like to welcome the 6th grade and new-to-Cheldelin families and our returning 7th and 8th grade families.  We hope you had a nice break from school and are looking forward to a positive and productive school year.


The CPO is essential to enhancing and extending the learning opportunities for our students.  We raise money to support activities and events such as grade level field trips and experiences, competitive academic entrance fees, assemblies, teacher grant requests, and yearbook scholarships.  We also support our teachers and staff by providing conference meals/staff appreciation and honor our outgoing 8th graders with a party/breakfast at the end of the school year.


We would love for you to join us!  CPO meetings are held on every first Tuesday of the month starting on October 3rd in the Cheldelin library at 7:00 p.m.

The meeting agenda will be sent via the listserv prior to the meeting and may include guest speakers, a Principal’s report and monthly business.  Topics for guest speakers may include (but are not limited to): Internet safety, Cheldelin’s public safety officer/purpose, curriculum/teaching methods and strategies, state testing (Smarter Balanced), ipads/technology, AVID program, mental health issues, etc.


The CPO Officers and Coordinators for the 2017-2018 school year are:
