FALL BUS ROUTE INFORMATION For many decades, Student Transportation has printed and mailed out a tabloid paper of fall bus route schedules to families in late August, prior to the first day of school. The document and the process to create it is time consuming and expensive, especially since many bus stops and times change within the first weeks of school, making the printed schedule out-of-date and inaccurate almost immediately.
Starting this fall for the 2016-17 school year, Student Transportation will no longer produce this printed schedule. We will be directing parents and schools to our webpage to find their bus information. http://www.pps.net/Page/141
Our bus schedules have been available online for many years, and we have recently updated our webpage to allow for easier searching and sorting to lookup individual schools and bus routes. School staff and parents can also print off schedules from the website. Our transportation schedules are updated regularly and the website is the best place to find current stops and times.
We will be working with the Communications Department to notify families of this change several times over the summer so that they will be able to find our schedules for school this fall. Routes should be finalized by mid-August.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Student Transportation at 503-916-6901.

A Message from the Principal
Dear Beverly Cleary Families,
It is with mixed emotions that I write my last installment of the Family Newsletter for this school year. Just like our students, I am excited for all that summer will bring, however I’m a bit nostalgic, at the same time, thinking of impending good-byes. It has been an incredible year of learning and professional growth for me as an aspiring administrator, and a whole lot of fun teaching music again to our Kindergartners. I will be eternally grateful to Teri Geist for her belief in my leadership abilities and her thoughtful guidance. I am thankful to Sarah Jones and Kiya Masunaga for their support and collegiality as well. As Kiya mentioned in the last newsletter, I, too, feel lucky to work with the amazing staff of Beverly Cleary, but I am especially grateful to my kindergarteners and their families for making this an outstanding year of learning and fun at Hollyrood!
There are always a great deal of activities going on at Beverly Cleary and this month is proving no different. Just this Wednesday and Thursday many families took the opportunity to attend Beverly Cleary’s Art and Curriculum Nights at each of the three campuses. It is always amazing to see the variety of artistic displays and all the student work. Both students and their teachers should be proud of all that has been accomplished.
Last week parents had a chance to attend our third Courageous Conversations About Race session of this school year. Feedback shared showed enthusiasm for the chance to come together to discuss racial issues or incidences that have occurred in our school this year. Using the Courageous Conversations protocols learned in previous sessions, parents were able to share ideas with each other about how to discuss racial issues with their children. While this was our last session for this year, we hope to pick up where we left off and to continue to have Courageous Conversations about race next year. I hope you will join us!
As we approach the final countdown there is still much to look forward to:
