Beaverton Education Foundation Phone-a-Thon October 9-17 - Answer the Call!
The 21st Beaverton Education Foundation Phone-a-thon takes place October 9-17, 2019. This annual dialing tradition provides critical funds that support innovative educational programs for students in the Beaverton community. During the five-fun-filled nights, more than 350 student volunteers make over 30,000 phone calls, dedicating their time, energy and enthusiasm to supporting BEF programs.
Last year, BEF served over 27,000 Beaverton students in grades K-12, funding 124 academic programs or projects. Through this funding from our supporters and community engagement, $390,603 was invested back into our schools.
This year our goal is to fund 130 projects impacting 30,000 students. Together, we will make it happen.
The Phone campaign and the associated mailings are the Foundations largest fundraising activity of the year. Funds raised are reinvested in a wide variety of after and summer school programs for students at all of Beaverton public schools. Please Answer the Call for our students!

What's going on in PE?
This month our PE program will be focusing on the underhand throw. The underhand throw is a great skill that translates to many activities such as bowling, horseshoe toss, and corn hole. Additionally, the underhand throw can lead to sport-specific actions such as a pitch in softball or a soccer goalie rolling the ball to one of their defenders. By the end of the unit, we will be setting up "Sato Lanes" for students to apply their underhand throwing skills by bowling.

New Health Standards and Health Adoption Information
Here in the Beaverton School District, we teach children important skills for getting along with others and doing well in school. In order to help our school be a safe and supportive place where everyone can learn, we also provide age-appropriate health instruction. There will be two primary resources used for this instruction: The Great Body Shop to teach the adopted Oregon Health Standards and fightchildabuse.org to teach sexual abuse prevention in accordance with Erin’s Law. Continue reading for more information on each resource.
Oregon Health Education Standards
The Great Body Shop, published by The Children’s Health Market, will be used to teach the new Oregon Health Education Standards. It offers skills-based instruction that addresses physical, social, emotional, and mental health. Human Sexuality Education instruction is age appropriate, medically accurate, and relevant for all students. If you would like to preview the materials, this document outlines the process for previewing the curriculum and for information on opting-out.
An important component of our curriculum is to help children protect their bodies, get support when abuse has occurred, and report to a trusted adult. In accordance with Erin’s Law, we are educating children about sexual abuse and promoting awareness within our communities. The Oregon Department of Education has required all Oregon schools to comply with Erin’s Law. The Erin’s Law lessons address personal safety, touching safety and assertiveness.
Your child’s teacher will be sharing these sexual abuse prevention lesson outcomes with you prior to teaching them, but you can also find the full lessons and videos on fightchildabuse.org. Please contact me if you have any further questions or for opt-out information. Thank you for helping us to make our school a safe and supportive place where everyone can learn.
