Beverly Cleary School
December 1st, 2023
A Note from Principal Presley
As the week progressed, it was almost surreal to see expectations reset and practiced near perfectly in every classroom. Student stamina seemed to pick up right where we left off, and families are one of the main reasons for that. You must have kept life consistent during the interruption, so thank you!
Today, we had a bounce back assembly led by our Cougar reps on empathy and inclusion. It was a great way to unite the community. Next week, we are lucky to host the Portland Opera on campus for Cinderella. A special shout out to our counselor for Ms. Jablonski for organizing it!
Finally, as a part of Action for Happiness' “Do Good December”, we are encouraging the community to try the daily suggestion for how you might fill someone’s bucket each day! Click here for the detailed calendar. I’m going to do my best to try each day’s suggestion, and I invite you to do the same!
As the week comes to a close, I hope you have a wonderful weekend. For our family that will mean watching the Ducks game tonight and heading to Eugene to watch them play basketball versus Michigan tomorrow.
