Nicole's Friday Focus
Information and Inspiration
September 16, 2016- Note from Nicole
This week brings my last week with all three of my kids at home. Our son is starting his second year at the University of Oregon. We have LOVED having him home this summer. He moves in to an apartment with friends on Friday, the 23rd. I am certain that the house will feel way too quiet again with just two kids in the nest. Our girls will miss their big brother ( so will I).
Please note that I will be out on Friday, September 30. I plan to volunteer at my 8th grade daughter Ellie's jogathon. I will also have another two days off later this fall. One is because my husband and I run the concessions for the OSAA State volleyball tournament. It is two days of crazy but it is a big fundraiser for the Liberty High School Volleyball team. Also, our daughter Madelyn, who is a Junior will be having her wisdom teeth removed and I will take a day to be with her for that. I will let you know when those days get closer.
For now, enjoy the success of another year under way. I am so blessed to get to work with each of you. Have some fun this weekend! Sunny weather, football, Oktoberfest...enjoy the season!

American Heart Association and the Beaverton School District
The Beaverton School District was #1 in the nation in 2015-16 for the increase in the money raised from the previous year for the American Heart Association. Our contribution jumped 185%! This is amazing work for a great cause and helps to get our kids to be active. With only eight elementary schools involved, what could we do if every school jumped in? Here are the totals from last year:
