Cast your VOTE

The Beaverton School Board on Monday, Jan. 22, 2018 unanimously adopted a resolution to place a five-year Local Option Levy Renewal on the May 15, 2018 ballot. This is a vote-by-mail election.

If approved, the Local Option Levy Renewal would allow Beaverton schools to preserve 300 teaching positions, maintain class sizes, and help ensure students are prepared for post-high school success. The levy renewal costs $1.25 per $1,000 assessed property value. Homes with the median assessed value of $238,000 would continue to pay less than $25 per month. The levy could raise approximately $31-$35 million a year.

In 2013, voters approved a five-year local option levy to restore teaching positions that had been cut due to repeated state funding shortfalls. The levy has raised $128 million, and 100% has remained in Beaverton schools to fund approximately 300 teaching positions and reduce class sizes. In the 2017-2018 school year, 158 of these positions were allocated to Beaverton’s elementary schools, 53 to middle schools, 70 to high schools, and 18 to options schools. The current levy pays for five full time teachers at Terra Linda.

PTC Club and Event Happenings:

Congratulations to Ms. Schroeder’s First Grade Class!

Ms. Schroeder’s first grade class won the $100 prize for class participation at the Jog-A-Thon (kudos to Mrs. Kohl’s kindergarten class for tying)!

After winning, the class took a vote and conducted research to determine which animal would make the best class pet. Students brainstormed, researched online, and wrote letters to PetSmart to get answers to their questions.

After a review of all their information, students chose a Winter White Dwarf hamster and aptly named her Snowball. Students watched a video and read books on hamster care before preparing a formal class agreement to ensure Snowball is treated well.

Snowball has only been a Terra Linda Tiger for one week but she’s received a very warm and ecstatic welcome. Snowball has been a great lesson on motivation and reward, research, and responsibility!

THANK YOU to Ms. Schroeder, her students, and parents for working hard to raise money for our school!

Jog-A-Thon: UPDATE

The Jog-A-Thon committee is working hard to get all the generous donations counted and prize winners identifed. Results will be announced at the 11/29 assembly. Stay tuned!

PTC Meeting

You may have noticed that we’ve changed the format of the PTC meetings this year. We’re sending out the agenda and updates before the meeting, so everyone can see the topics ahead of time.

The updates will not be reviewed, in the meeting, unless parents/staff have questions. It’ll give us more time to discuss PTC business that requires parent input and feedback.  Please bring questions or concerns to the meeting.  We welcome your input!

We’re hoping this will help streamline the meetings, so we can discuss topics that really matter to our Terra Linda community. We’d love to see you at our next meeting!

Some months we will have guest speakers on topics that matter to you.  Save the date for the December PTC meeting:  Wednesday, Dec. 6

We’ll learn about how BSD elementary schools are approaching math instruction this year.

  • What are students doing during the school day?
  • How can you be supportive at home?
  • How do the math skills and strategies build from year to year?

Join us for an interactive presentation beginning at 7:00 pm followed by a brief discussion of PTC activities and events.

Scholastic Book Fair

Last week’s book fair was a success!
