Important Information

Beverly Cleary School Mosaic Glass Tilikum Mural Project By Portland-Milwuakie Light Rail Project

Under the guidance of artist-in-residence Mark Brody, over 75 eighth grade students from Beverly Cleary K-8 School in NE Portland created a mosaic glass mural of Tilikum Crossing.

Using more than 10,000 mosaic glass pieces (some of which were leftover from the project’s station shelter column public art) produced by
Bullseye Glass Co., the three-section mural will dry before being joined together, then permanently installed in the hallway near the school’s front office in early February.

A Message from the Principal

Dear Beverly Cleary Families-

We are off to a great start this year!  Students and teachers alike came back to school energized and focused on continuing this very successful school year.  Let’s keep this momentum going as we move through this fantastic year!

One way to stay motivated is to keep learning new things.  In this way, students aren’t the only ones learning at Beverly Cleary!  Our weekly staff meetings provide a place for staff to learn specific strategies to support our students.  We also spend a good deal of time learning about the Common Core Standards and upcoming Smarter Balanced Assessment.  Another topic we frequently discuss is equity, as it is a focus for our school and district.  During weekly staff meetings, these important topics, among others, continue to be revisited throughout the year.  We want to ensure that all students have the opportunity to thrive at Beverly Cleary, and this is just one way to make it happen!

Additionally, once a month, teachers meet in Professional Learning Communities, or PLCs.  During these meetings, teachers discuss data, share classroom practices, and problem- solve strategies to support, challenge, and engage students at all levels. They collaborate with each other to plan lessons that are consistent, rigorous, and engaging.  PLCs give teachers time to discuss new tools to meet students where they are, and to share insight and ideas with their colleagues.  Another important element of PLCs is celebrating student successes!  Beverly Cleary’s staff is committed to learning and continuing to grow in their knowledge, so that we can be the best learning community we can be!
