Hollyrood Traffic Pattern  We are experiencing traffic problems at the Hollyrood Campus.  To avoid frustration, please enter on the NE 35th Place to Hollyrood Court and exit 36th Ave. to Knott Street making a one-way traffic pattern.  Vehicles cannot travel in both directions safely on Hollyrood Ct. during drop-off and pick-up times.  Parents/Students are on their bicycles and families are crossing the crosswalk.  Please be careful and watch out for them and follow the one-way traffic pattern.  This will ensure the safety of our families. Please do not park or stop in the bus zone area or in the NO PARKING/STOPPING zones in front of the school. Hopefully this will keep our children safe!Thank you for your cooperation

A Message from the Principal

Happy Friday Beverly Cleary Community,

February is a special and busy month at school!  It is a time for celebrating Black History, Valentine’s Day, Groundhog’s Day, Chinese New Year, and President’s Day.  Our fourth and fifth grade students have participated in a fundraiser called Jump Rope for Heart since February is also American Heart month.  Two special events at Beverly Cleary (and many other PPS schools) are “No One Eats Alone/Plays Alone Day on Feb 12, and Project 2nd Wind, our canned food drive February 22-26.  This is a schoolwide canned food drive, please read below for more information.  

We have had a few days that feel like the winter months are ending and spring is around the corner.  Although we have had many inside recess days, please send your student to school dressed for the weather.  Unless it is really raining, we try to have the outside playground as an option.  

We are fortunate at Beverly Cleary to have art opportunities for our students.  Although Run for the Arts is not until April, the proceeds from last year’s run have in part paid for the production of several plays this year.  Last week Mr. Tabshy’s, “Murder’s in the Heir” was a fantastic play featuring our middle school students.  This production was truly student driven.  Mr. Tabshy teaches Stagecraft, an elective during 2nd quarter when students design and build the set.  Congratulations to Mr. Tabshy and the actors, crew, and parent volunteers, for putting on a wonderful, audience interactive performance.  Thank you, our supportive community.  “Murder’s in the Heir” sold out all three nights.  We are about $500 away from the 10K goal that would allow us to purchase new curtains for the stage.  It’s not too late!  Please contact the audience if you’d like to contribute.  

This week, the third grade performers put on, “Portland!  A Musical.”  The history of Portland is a social studies unit for third graders in PPS.  Students have the opportunity to learn about the history of Portland through music, led by the talented Ralph Nelson.  This year the third grade team added an equity lens and led the students in research and the writing of the historical counter story.  Ralph was gracious enough to allow the kids to add their narratives to his play. This is a special event and the third graders have worked very hard.  It is fun for the kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade students to see their older peers perform.     

Last month we had our very first Courageous Conversation for Parents meeting.  Thank you for all the attended.  We had great feedback from you regarding where you’d like to see our school.   During our first meeting, we shared Glenn Singleton’s book called Courageous Conversations About Race.    We shared the compass, a communication tool that we will use at each meeting.  The compass, 4 agreements, and 6 conditions are the key components to Courageous Conversation.  We have a second parent meeting scheduled for Monday, April 4, at 6:30.  We are planning on arranging childcare.  We would love to see more families attend and hope that having childcare will make it easier to plan.
