SAFETY DRILL: In our ongoing practices designed to keep students and staff safe, we conducted campus-wide intruder drills this afternoon in cooperation with Beaverton City Police. After the simulation, teachers and students discussed different scenarios and potential actions that could be taken in the event of an actual incident. As campus safety and security plans continue to evolve, rest assured we’ll always make it a point to keep the community informed and involved. #Safety+Security

PLAN TO SUCCEED: With parent-teacher conferences set for next Tuesday from 1 to 4 p.m. and 5 to 8 p.m. at both buildings, we’re advising visitors of revised teacher availability to make the discussions as effective as possible. At BES, conferences for grades K-3 will be held in students’ respective classrooms at scheduled times. For grades 4-6, all teachers will gather in the gym for open house style meetings. At BJSHS, all teachers will confer with parents in their classrooms. All meetings for grades 4-12 will be held on a first-come, first-served basis. We greatly look forward to seeing you. #GoBeavers
SPECIAL SALUTE: Beaverton Elementary's Veterans Day assembly is always a heartfelt, moving affair, and today's was no exception. Sincere thanks to our veterans and guests, and congratulations to our students for putting on a sterling show of community pride.
The Anatomy and Physiology students at Beaverton Jr/Sr High School visited the "Real Bodies" on exhibit at the Sloan Museum today! They were amazed at the details shown in these plasticized, real bodies on display. We were able to see parts of the human body in a unique and remarkable way. This was a valuable experience that added to our studies!
Thank you, Beaverton voters. #ACommunityOfOpportunity #GoBeavers
