Chetana Foundation

Chetana is a non-profit organization with a mission to spread happiness through service to the community. Helping people from all walks of life regardless of race, religion, income-level, culture, and political beliefs is a key objective for Chetana volunteers who actively undertake a variety of social welfare programs. For example, volunteers cook and serve delicious meals at local shelters for the homeless, specifically those run by Transition Projects. Another Chetana project is packaging food at the Oregon Food Bank on a weekly basis. Volunteers also make and pack sack lunches for the underprivileged on a weekly basis. Each session is sponsored by a volunteer family, which helps pay for food ingredients and packaging supplies, and even delivers the food to a homeless shelter. Other projects include food-drives, education programs, clothe-drives, Adopt-a-Road, planting trees, kids coloring for Fighting Pretty, backpacks for underprivileged students, water bottles for homeless shelters, college events, promoting healthy initiatives, supporting retirement homes, fundraiser brunches, helping athletes, disaster relief, disability support, and alleviating poverty in India. Both adults, as well as minors, are part of Chetana’s corps of over 300 volunteers.

Congratulations to Shishira Adusumilli, Sahith Chandra, Rishitha Chandra, Sri Vaishnavi Sarpana Chandu, Aneesha Mahindraker, Bhavika Buddi, Akhil Vemuri, Tarun Narahari, Akshata Jha, Maanasa Pulavarty, Vignesh Bhaskar and Sreenija Muduganti,

Sree Adusumilli did 306 hours of volunteering in a year and achieved the Golden Presidential Award.

Technology

New this week on our WHS Technology for Parents and Students Site http://bit.ly/whsfuture:

Chrome Reboot...and what to do

It has just come to our attention that the district is running some Chromebook updates that may erase all downloads, screenshots, photos, and app files saved locally to your Chromebook.

If you have critical files that are currently saved only on your Chromebook, be sure to copy them over to your Google Drive as backup as soon as possible. Files saved to your Google Drive will not be deleted, but files saved only on the Chromebook may be.

To make sure you never lose a file:

1. Review downloaded files often and save, if needed, but know they could be automatically deleted.

2. Have ALL downloads automatically saved to Drive

a. In GoogleDrive, make a folder called 'Downloads'

b. On your Chromebook, Go to Settings / Advanced / Downloads / Location / and change location to Google

Drive/Downloads

3. Turn on the setting: Ask where to save each file before downloading so you can choose

a. Go to Settings / Advanced / Downloads / then turn on “Ask where to save each file before downloading”

WHS Makerspace S216

Have a project coming up, and want to let students know of a place where they can have materials to create? We not only received a grant last year to purchase some great project making tools, but we have also had a number of generous donations from crafters that have given up crafting...in other words, we have fancy paper, paper cutters, stickers, a BUTTON MAKER!!!, and more. I have to admit, it isn’t all organized, but it is a work in progress. Please let me know if you need something.

Thank you for answering the call

It takes a community to make strong public schools; thank you, Beaverton Families, for your support

The Beaverton community rallied in support of our 53 public schools by pledging over $106,000 to the Beaverton Education Foundation (BEF) during our 21st annual Phone-a-thon. Thank you to all the families who answered the call. Your donation impacts over 41,000 Beaverton students!


As the non-profit school foundation serving all 53 of Beaverton’s public schools, BEF enhances our students’ education by raising money to fund hands-on, innovative, academic enrichment and advancement programs and projects that otherwise would not be possible with normal school funding. BEF mobilizes community resources to fund innovative classroom, summer and after-school programs.


We are grateful to the volunteers who make Phone-a-thon possible: our 350 dedicated high school student callers, their club advisors, and our business and civic volunteers. Thank you to our generous community partners: First Tech Federal Credit Union, Reser's Fine Foods, Ruby Receptionists, and the Beaverton Valley Times/Pamplin Media Group. Additionally, over fifteen local businesses provided refreshments and incentives to our volunteers; thank you! We appreciate the support of our Beaverton community.


If you missed the call, you can still help our 41,000 Beaverton students to have the opportunity to be inspired, think innovatively, and succeed by donating today at www.beavertonEDfoundation.org
