  • SPOOKARAMA IS OCTOBER 27!!

    Spookarama Details

    • Friday, Oct 27th, 5:30-8pm at BCS Fernwood campus.
    • K-2 early start at 5:30pm, Grades 3-8 start at 6pm.
    • Wristbands will cost $8 per person and will cover games, activities, and entertainment. Wristbands will be on sale after school at all three campuses on Oct 25-27.
    • Payment options include cash, credit card, or checks made out to BCS PTA.
    • Food will be available for sale during the event.

    As we did last year, we will provide wristbands if you and your student need any financial assistance with attending Spookarama. The BCS PTA is committed to providing every student the opportunity to attend, be apart of the evening’s activities, and build those memories. Please let your teacher or counselor know what you need and we will take care of your wristbands.

  • No Late Openings for BCS

    This is a reminder that Beverly Cleary does not participate in the PPS late opening days.  Instead, we will take three full days of professional development throughout the year.  The dates for these are 9/29, 1/26, and 4/16.  On these dates there will be no school for students at all three BCS campuses.  Please mark your calendars.  
  • AFTER SCHOOL AND COMMUNITY CLASSES AND ACTIVITIES

    There are several new and exciting after school classes coming up!  Music, art, technology, languages and yoga!  Check them out under the community tab at the top of this page.  They fill up quickly so sign up soon!
  • SchoolCafe has replaced MySchoolBucks (exp. 10/7)

    SchoolCafe has replaced MySchoolBucks. This lets you see how much money PPS  has for your student's cafeteria account.   See this page.

    If you have your student's PPS ID (on schedule, report card, ParentVue) you can REGISTER with them now. You must register and create a new account.  Schoolcafe will recognize your student's ID# and it will carry over the correct balance from last year.

    If you have technical difficulties registering please contact Nutrition Services at 503-916-3399.  You can send your student with a check and the cafeteria will add it to their balance. That way you can avoid the 5% convenience fee.

    You can set limits where you'll get emails to refill. So $10 or $15 gives you a few days to ask your kid "Did you give them the check?"
