ACE Mentorship Program for Students in Grades 11 & 12
Do you know a junior or senior who is interested in Architecture, Construction or Engineering (ACE)? If so, the ACE Mentor Program might interest them. Students can design a building, learn valuable work skills, and explore careers in architecture, construction and engineering.
ACE is a FREE after-school program for high school juniors and seniors interested in Architecture, Construction and Engineering (ACE). Student teams collaborate on a building design project under the guidance of industry professionals. ACE also offers college scholarships for seniors and summer camp opportunities for juniors.
ACE STUDENTS gain valuable career skills, network with professionals, and explore ACE careers.
ACE MENTORS give back to their community, inspire the next generation, and attract new talent to the industry.
The program runs January – May 2020 and applications are due Friday, November 22, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. Students are placed on a Tuesday or Thursday team with 10-15 students from different high schools and 7-10 mentors from a mix of architecture, construction, and engineering firms. Teams meet 13 times (once a week or once every two weeks) from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Light meals are served at each meeting and supplies are provided. Prior experience and outside homework are not required. Students are responsible for their own transportation to and from meetings.
Meetings are held in downtown Portland at ACE mentors’ offices and job sites. Students have the opportunity to visit multiple professional workplaces, learn how to network, and explore career paths within the ACE industry. Teams design a building together, and students present their projects to a large audience at the program finale in May.
ACE will hold an optional Student/Family Information Session on Tuesday, November 19, 2019 from 6:00 – 7:00 p.m. at Merlo Station High School, 1841 SW Merlo Dr., Beaverton.
For more information, visit the ACE Mentor Program website at acementor.org/Portland-or, or refer students to your school’s college and career coordinator/counselor.
We have made changes to the Chromebook Damage/Loss Program that are effective immediately.

Summary of the changes:
• The Chromebook chargers/power cords and styli are now covered in the Damage/Loss Program.
• First incident of accidental damage or loss to the charger or stylus is covered. No charge.
• Second and subsequent incidents of accidental damage or loss to the charger or stylus will result in the following charges:
• Charger: $10.00

Tech Thirty Thursday
Does your student like to make things? Do they have a project coming up? They should consider stopping by the Creative Space in room S216 during lunch for 30 minutes of awesome (AND they could create a self-made BUTTON!). We have loads of supplies available for students to use both for classroom projects, and just to explore. Can’t come during lunch? Have their teacher contact Ms. Schulz to open the space during another class period. There are many open slots. I look forward to seeing you there!

Report Cards Are Going Paperless
The Beaverton School District is transitioning to electronic report cards for all students. This upcoming Progress period will be the last time we will be printing and mailing paper progress reports/report cards. The electronic report cards will be accessed through ParentVUE (mobile and desktop). If parents/guardians have not set up their ParentVUE account, they will need to do so by January 2020.
There are resources and guidance on how to set up a ParentVue account. Please view the FAQ for instructions on setting up an account.
There are several benefits to moving to paperless report cards. Families will be able to view grades days after grading days, rather than wait up to two weeks for a report card to come by mail or in their child’s backpack. In addition, moving away from paper is environmentally friendly and cost-effective for the District.
Please encourage parents/guardians to contact their school if they need help setting up or accessing their ParentVUE account or need assistance with a printed copy. We will be sharing more information about this transition in the coming weeks.
