BSD WEEKLY

Message from Superintendent Don Grotting

Dear BSD Community,


I want to take this opportunity to acknowledge the work that has been done over the summer by our BSD staff, including teachers, support staff and administrators. In particular, I’d like to thank those teachers and support staff who’ve given their time and voices to constructing our Return-to-School Plan during what’s typically their summer break. Their commitment to providing input has been invaluable and much appreciated.


I’d like to highlight some of the recent and continuing efforts:

In conjunction with the Beaverton Education Foundation (BEF) and other community partners, we are attempting to raise funds to buy supplies for 16,000 Success Kits. If successful, these kits will be distributed to every student in our district who qualifies for free or reduced lunch during the first week of September. Distribution will occur at your home school; we’re working out the details of how to distribute to FLEX Online students. If you qualify, hold off on buying your school supplies.


We’ve already directed some funds from the BSD Community Resource Fund to this project. Can you help us reach our goal? If so, please consider donating to the BEF Back-to-School Equip Campaign.


In addition, we’re having a district-wide School Supply Drive on August 20 at Beaverton High School, where you can donate any of the items mentioned above: Main Gym Entrance (corner of 2nd and Stott Avenues) from 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. - 7 p.m.
