Dear Raleigh Hills Community,

What an unforgettable year. This wasn't exactly how I pictured my first year at Raleigh Hills. We have been through a lot together in this short time. What I have learned about you is that you are up for any challenge. I'm so glad that we will face whatever comes together next year. Thank you for welcoming me into this community and for being so kind to me and our staff. I have enjoyed getting to know you and look forward to getting back together in person next year.

The wave-off today was so fun! Thank you for driving up and making us feel special! If you weren't able to make it, check out the live stream, pictures and videos on The Friends of Raleigh Hills Facebook page. It was great to celebrate the 8th graders and send them on to their high schools. We'll see you on Zoom tonight at 6. If you weren't able to make it today, your HS shirt was delivered to your door.

While we don't yet know what next year will look like, we know that we are living through an unprecedented time. It feels like we have a wonderful opportunity to harness this energy for change and turn it into something really special. We here at Raleigh Hills commit to giving you our best no matter what school looks like next year. We commit to fighting for social justice and making sure all students feel welcome and safe. And we commit to welcoming you back as soon as we can!

Have a great summer. Keep reading. Keep doing dreambox. Stay physically active and practice gratitude and kindness. We will see you next year!

Warm regards,


Updates and Summer Communication

I will continue to put out communication throughout the summer as we learn more about what next year will look like. My newsletters will not be weekly, but they will come out on Thursdays. You may also receive messages via School Messenger. Remember to check our website for updates as well. Pay special attention to the community resources page, linked below, for access to information about meals, utilities, transportation and other needs.

School Supplies

Here is the link to order school supply boxes for next year. We're not yet sure what school will look like when we return, but get prepared. You can order your box of supplies here. The code is RAL005. If we have more things to add once we know more about next year, we will update you, but this is still a great list!

Math Opportunities This Summer

DreamBox will be available to you all summer. Please remember to log on and do at least one lesson a day! Here's the link to another great resource from Stanford professor Jo Boaler. This is a six-session course about being a mathematician. Parents can participate too and learn about how we're learning math in school now!

Middle School Summer Reading

Here are some great resources that were curated by our district librarians for summer reading for middle school. Also, check out Ms. Sheir's fantastic site for all things library and technology!

Reading Room

Looking for some resources to participate in Reading Without Walls this summer? Here's a great collection of books that teach about when your dad has to do your hair, how mamas love their babies, and even when the kid president meets the real president. Just click on the picture or the book and it will be read to you. I have loved reading many of the books on these shelves and I hope to finish them all by the end of the summer. Join me!

Kindergarten Registration

We are able to accept registrations for next year. You can fill out the online registration forms now. If your student is already enrolled, you do not need to complete a new registration for next year. It is especially important that we register kindergarteners at this time. Please spread the word that families can fill out the enrollment forms for new students for next year.

If you prefer a paper packet, those can be picked up at the school outside the main office door on Wednesdays from 10-12. There will also be a bin there to turn in completed packets.

Donate to BSD Community Resources Fund

The Beaverton School District is now accepting donations from the greater Beaverton community to support community-wide efforts to provide food boxes, toiletries and other essential items to our families during this emergency situation. Food Banks are working hard to remain stocked to feed communities. There are many Beaverton families who struggle economically even in the best of times, and this fund will enable the Beaverton School District to work with community partners to serve our families. We use this fund to triple the buying power and thus increase the amount of families we can serve, a number that increases daily. Pass this on to friends and neighbors (we can also honor matching dollars!)

To make a donation to the Beaverton Schools Community Resources Fund, visit

We started by serving 200 families and are currently serving 650 families. WE would love to serve more ...and more often. Please consider donating to the Beaverton Schools Community Resources Fund today! Together WE are better!
