Conestoga House Calls
Clothes Closet is now Clothes for Kids!
The Clothes Closet has a new name! It is now called Clothes for Kids. This name better represents the mission of providing free new and gently used clothes to students in need in the Beaverton School District. It’s much more than a closet!
If your student needs clothing at no cost, Clothes for Kids is ready to serve you. Appointments are required. Clothes for Kids has updated winter hours: Tuesdays 9:30 a.m. - 3 p.m., Wednesdays 10 a.m. - 6 p.m. and Thursdays 9:30 a.m. - 3 p.m.
To schedule, please complete the Clothes for Kids Appointment form or call 503-356-4322. Visits are limited to one adult with four children or two adults with 8 children. All visitors must wear masks. If you don't have your own, we'll provide one.
We’re also looking for Clothes for Kids volunteers. Please contact Johanna Shrout at firstname.lastname@example.org.

CTE - Career Technical Education
CTE programs engage high school students in high-quality, rigorous and relevant classes, designed to help them turn their passions into paychecks and their dreams into careers. CTE programs partner with local businesses and industry to create opportunities that promote creativity, innovation and leadership, which are relevant to the job market of today.
We have created a series of videos, titled “Grads Talking Shop” to highlight some of the 32 CTE programs across our six comprehensive high schools and one option high school. In this episode of "Grads Talking Shop," we explore the world of Automotive Technology through the eyes of Kristin Keppner, an alumnus of BHS and Auto Tech program. While housed at Aloha High School, the CTE Auto Tech program is available to students from any of our comprehensive high schools. (Transportation is provided.) Take a look!
District Goal: WE empower all students to achieve post-high school success.
