Principal's Message

  • 1/11/2021

    Hello BEH Families,

     

    As we begin our second week of 2021, I am anticipating continued uncertainty and challenges nationally as we continue this transition of administrations unlike any we have ever experienced. Teachers have been working to process the events with students and encouraging dialogue around what is happening and how we can manage any stress and anxiety we may be experiencing as a result.

     

    Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Project:

    Many of our staff have been working on a project to honor Dr. King. In a typical year, we would be planning a school wide assembly. This year, we are working on creating a video that we are planning to post on our YouTube Channel on Monday. Our goal is to get students and staff to record themselves reading sections of Dr. King's "I Have a Dream" speech so that we can share the entire speech spoken by our community. We are looking for students/families that would be interested and willing to record themselves reading a section of this speech so that we can construct the entire speech as a school community. If you are interested and would be willing to let your student read a section of the speech and be recorded so that we can add it into this project please let me know and I will connect you with our staff that are coordinating this project. Additionally, all classes will be recording the entire class saying "I have a dream" in morning meetings, be reviewing the speech, and picking out significant words/phrases to highlight as well. Please reach out if you have any questions or thoughts around this project. Our goal is to get the video finished this week and posted to our YouTube Channel on Monday.

     

    SEL Update:

    In morning meetings, we will be teaching the 10th of our 12 Tools this week: the Please and Thank You Tool, which aligns with our Core Value of Community.  Our Learning Target for students is “I can use my Please and Thank You Tool to treat others with kindness and appreciation.”

    We invite you to review this Please and Thank You Home Letter for more ideas on how to use the Please & Thank You Tool to promote kindness and gratitude with your family.  Families can also watch our Please and Thank You Tool mini-lesson, and two related Read Aloud stories: Time to Say Please and Are Pirates Polite?

     

    Student Assessment:

    Kindergarten and any first graders that were not in PPS in kindergarten will be starting their DIBELS assessments this week. This is a reading assessment that helps both helps to guide teacher instruction and intervention and is the Dyslexia Screener for students in PPS. You will hear from teachers around how this will be conducted in the coming weeks.

     

    All of our teachers will be participating in MAP assessment training starting this week in order to prepare for how we will conduct school wide academic assessments for all students in the areas of math and literacy. We will learn more about what this will look like and begin sharing information out about schedule and plans moving forward. This will help us to get a better idea of what academic growth has looked like through the pandemic, since we last conducted these assessments just before we were shifted into distance learning.

     

    LIPI vs. Hybrid:

    We are continuing our discussions as a district around what and when in-person instruction may begin and what it would look like when we get there. The terms are likely hearing thrown around frequently around this are Limited In Person Instruction (LIPI) and Hybrid. I wanted to quickly clarify the difference between these two approaches to returning. 

    • LIPI is a targeted return for specific students and for a limited amount of time and days each week. This would not pertain to all PPS students and would be in addition to distance learning, not in replacement of.
    • Hybrid would be a combination of in-person and distance learning that would be open and available to all students who were interested. The in-person instruction would be in replacement of some of the distance learning instruction.

    These are the two options being most discussed with staff and families and I wanted to clarify them in case you are asked which your family would feel comfortable with.

     

    PTA Fundraiser:

    Atlas Pizza (710 N Killingsworth, Portland, OR 97217) is hosting a fundraiser for Boise-Eliot/Humboldt tomorrow, Tuesday, January 12, from 4pm-10pm. 20% of profits from the evening will be donated to our school. Please help spread the word and consider joining your BEH community in enjoying a slice, or pie, from Atlas Pizza on Killingsworth tomorrow evening!

     

    Don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or thoughts around any of this or other topics.

     

    Take care, 

    Mr. Kaveh and Ms. Turner

    Hello BEH Families, 

    I cannot remember a year that I have been more excited to closeout than 2020. I am hopeful that it can only get better in 2021. I hope that you all had a relaxing and peaceful end to your 2020, we have missed seeing all of our amazing students and cannot wait to get back to our routines and bring the focus back to pushing each student academically.
     
    Over the break I saw many conflicting messages from various sources about what is likely to happen in February with distance learning. Like you all, I am waiting for the official message from PPS that will likely come in the next couple of weeks about what the plan may look like to try and get our students moving towards in person instruction. I will of course share any information I hear with you and help to process what it will likely mean for our students at BEH.
     
    Meal Service:
    PPS meal service begins again this week Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 3:00-4:30. Meals will be available to all children ages 1-18 out of our parking lot. Additionally, if families are in need of further food support, reach out and let me or the PTA know and we can coordinate getting food for family meals from the PTA food pantry located at BEH.
     
    SEL Update:
    In morning meetings, we will be teaching the 9th of our 12 Tools this week: the Taking Time Tool, which aligns with our Core Value of Perseverance.  Our Learning Target for students is “I can use my Taking Time Tool to take time-in and time-away.”

    We invite you to review this Taking Time Tool Home Letter for more ideas on when to use the Taking Time Tool, including when conflicts arise.  Families can also watch our Taking Time Tool mini-lesson on our YouTube Channel and encourage students to complete this week’s Toolbox Seesaw Activity.

    SEI 3-5th Support:
    We will be working on getting SEI connected with our 3rd-5th grade in order to identify and begin serving families that would like support around building organization skills and focusing on helping to push students academically. This model is one that SEI has had in place in many middle schools around Portland and I am excited to be one of the first elementary schools to bring this support to our students as they prepare for the middle school transition. I will be  meeting with them this week to get some further details to share.
     
    Coffee Chat:
    The first Friday of January was a holiday. As a result, this month's coffee chat is this Friday. This is an opportunity to connect around our plans at BEH, what we can do to best meet the needs of our students and families, and ask any questions you may have moving forward. Here is the link to the meeting for this Friday at 8:00 AM. 
     

    Share Your Voice with New York Times:

    A reporter reached out to us in December and is interested in writing an article about the experience of supporting children during distance learning. She shared “I am a reporter for The New York Times, based in Portland. I'm looking for mothers of kids who attend Boise Eliot, and who have quit their jobs, left the labor force or drastically cut back on work since the pandemic began, in order to manage child care and remote school. The idea is to illustrate the vast scope of the challenge mothers face nationwide right now by telling the stories of mothers at one school. If this describes you, and you'd be willing to be photographed and interviewed for the story, I'd love to hear from you. Please reach out right away to ccm@nytimes.com.  I'm hoping to connect with a diverse and representative group of Boise Eliot mothers who have stopped working. Thank you so much, Claire Cain Miller”

    As we jump back into the routines this week, be sure to check with teachers if there are any questions about schedule and expectations moving into 2021. Every K-5 student at BEH should have a morning meeting at 9:00 to start their day, at least two live small groups, and a live grade level specials meeting 4 days a week. In addition to this, students have assignments to complete on SeeSaw and daily work to do in online programs (Lexia, Dreambox, Zearn, Mathshelf, etc.)
     
    I am hopeful that 2021 is a year that gets us back to in-person instruction, but does not go fully back to where we were before the pandemic. We have learned a lot since then and my hope is that we can take those lessons and reimagine what school can be for our students and communities. 
     
    Thank you all for being on this journey with us. BEH will be stronger than ever because of the collaboration between our families, staff, and the community around us. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions, concerns or ideas to share with us.

    Take care, 
    Mr. Kaveh and Ms. Turner

    12/14/2020
     
    Hello BEH Families, 
     
    We have officially begun the final school week of 2020. I can't tell you how ready I am to close the book on 2020 and look forward with optimism towards 2021. This week we will be focused on getting students engaged in online platforms that they can utilize over the break, getting resources out to families, and collecting student art to display in our windows for the break.
     
    Student Art Display:
    We were able to get the approval to move forward with our winter art display in our windows around BEH. Ms. Larkin Miller has been working with each grade level on a winter themed art project that we are hoping students/parents can drop by the school Monday-Friday between 8:30-4:00. We will be putting up all student art this Friday in windows around BEH. These will be put in windows with battery powered lights to illuminate the work each evening. This will allow families and the community to come and walk around the school and see the student art.
     
    Part of our plan was to also have student work on display through monitors in the windows as well so that students that could not drop off work could also be included, but that was not approved. As a result, we will only be able to post work that we have on paper. So, if you have any artwork that your child has completed during this pandemic fall, please feel free to drop it by before winter break to be included in the art display. We are hopeful that this will provide another activity for families and the community over the break, as we plan to have the art lit-up in the windows every evening until 10pm. 
     
    Lego/Instrument Extension:
    Our original plan was to collect all instruments and Lego kits before winter break. As we have given more thought to this, we have decided to extend that until the end of the second quarter. This means we will not be attempting to collect these until the end of January. We figured this gives students something else to potentially engage with over the winter break and it gives our third graders more time to engage in the Lego lessons provided by our STEAM planning team. If you are a K-2 family and you would like to get the percussion instruments out of your home for the break, you are of course still welcome to drop them off this week at the building.
     
    SEL Update:

    In morning meetings, we will be teaching the 8th of our 12 Tools this week: the Personal Space Tool, which aligns with our Core Value of Integrity.  Our Learning Target for students is “I can use my Personal Space Tool to say I have the right to my space. You have the right to yours.”


    We invite you to review this Personal Space Tool Home Letter for more ideas on how to build awareness about the space around them.  Families can also watch our Personal Space Tool mini-lesson and two related Read Alouds of Hands Off Harry and We Don’t Eat Our Classmates to learn more.  

    Meal Distribution:
    This is the last week for PPS meal distribution. We will be distributing school meals from the parking lot on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 3:00-4:30. Friday's distribution will consist of food intended to last for one week for each child. 
     
    Holiday Support Distribution:
    Our PTA, SEI/SUN, and BEH support team are working this week to finish up the shopping and construction of food and gift resource boxes for families that expressed a need. These will be ready for pick-up by this Friday. PTA will be reaching out to families around specifics so they can be picked-up as they are prepared and ready for distribution.
     
    SEI 3rd-5th Program Addition:
     Following the break we will be adding a new student/family support program through SEI for our 3rd-5th grade students. We will have an SEI coordinator working with interested students/families around successfully engaging in school, providing supports, and helping to prepare them for the responsibilities of middle school. If this is something you would be interested in, please let your child's teacher know or respond to this message.
     
    Winter Break:
    The school building will be closed for the entirety of the winter break (December 19th-January 3rd) and there will be no new lessons or live meetings during this time. Any previously posted work will remain on the SeeSaw classrooms for students/families that would like to access it and many of the independent programs (i.e. Lexia, MathShelf, Dreambox, etc.) will be available for students to access as needed. This can be an opportunity to maintain some consistency in schedule and academic focus over the break, but also don't forget to allow for students to take some time off and away from screens when possible as well.
     
    I hope that you are able to find some time this break to slow down and disconnect from the tech a little bit and enjoy some family time. 
     
    I look forward to coming back after the break and working our way back towards some form of normalcy in the new year.

    Take care, 
    Mr. Kaveh & Ms. Turner

    12/7/2020
     
    Hello BEH Families,
     
    This is shaping up to be another busy week at BEH. I am hopeful that you are all seeing the amazing work that our teachers and staff are doing everyday to work to improve their connection and instruction with all of our amazing students. Our teachers have been reflecting on student data and working to come up with creative ways to engage our students and connect families given the ongoing challenges of being virtual.
     
    As stressful and taxing as this has all been, I would not want to be supporting any other community of students, families, and staff. The resiliency that I see and hear everyday is incredible and the focus on what we can improve and what positives we can draw from this experience helps me stay positive through those extra challenging days. Thank you all for being an important part of our community and helping to support each other through this unprecedented time.
     
    PTA Meeting:
    We will have our last PTA meeting of 2020 this Wednesday starting at 5:30. Here is the link to join the meeting. I will try to get there ten minutes early to start letting people in to the meeting. Just click the link on Wednesday at 5:30 to join.
     
    These are always great opportunities to connect with fellow BEH families and staff, discuss upcoming events, and share ideas for how we can best support our community moving forward.
     
    Winter Art Display:
    Ms. Larkin-Miller is working with each grade on completing a winter art activity that we are hoping to get dropped off at the school in the next week so that we can create a winter window art display. Please remind your students to attend art, complete the project, and then drop it by the school M-F from 8:30-4:00 if possible. Our plan is to create  a winter art display for the community to visit over the winter break.
     
    Material/work distribution:
    Due to the current restrictions with in-person staffing, we are not having a Wednesday specific pick-up time for materials. If teachers have materials to be picked up they will let you know and it can be picked up by coming to the main door of the school Wednesday-Friday from 8:30-4:00. We will bring out any work that teachers have set aside for you then. This allows us to reduce crowding, contact, and operate at a lower staff ratio.
     
    Social Emotional Learning (SEL) Update:
    In Morning Meetings, we will be teaching the 7th of our 12 Tools this week: the Apology and Forgiveness Tool, which aligns with our Core Value of Community.  Our Learning Target for students is: “I can use my Apology and Forgiveness tool to admit my mistakes and work to forgive yours.” 
     
    We invite you to review this Apology and Forgiveness home letter. Consider modeling this tool by finding something to apologize for or offer forgiveness to your child. Families can watch an Apology and Forgiveness Tool mini-lesson and a Read Aloud of the book “Matthew and Tilly” on our BEH YouTube Channel. The mini-lesson can also be viewed by students on Seesaw in their new “Week of 12/7 to 12/11 Toolbox-Apology and Forgiveness Tool” Activity.   
     
    Internet Cards and Personal Chromebook Support:
    You still have a couple more days to request internet gift card support or a personal Chromebook to help your student engage in distance learning. Let me know by the end of the day on Tuesday if either of these supports would benefit your family. The internet cards are meant for families that are working with an internet provider or would like to establish with an internet provider but need some financial support with this. The Chromebooks would be for families that would benefit from having a personal Chromebook for their student to keep for their use regardless of whether we are in distance learning or not.
     
    Food and Gift Support:
    Our PTA, SUN, and SEL team are working together to compile a list of families that would benefit from food and/or gift support going into the winter break. If your family would benefit from these resources please reach out by responding to this email or letting your child's teacher know by the end of this week, Friday, December 11th so that we can add you to the support list. The PTA is planning on distributing these resources by the end of next week.
     
    I hope you all have a great week and please reach out if there is anything that we can support your family with as we continue to move forward towards the end of this incredibly challenging 2020.
     
    Take Care, 
    Mr. Kaveh & Ms. Turner

    Hello BEH Families,
     
    I hope you were all able to find a way to enjoy the holiday weekend with family and friends in some capacity, even if it had to be through a virtual platform. It definitely felt different than any other I can remember. With the Covid numbers spiking around the country it is looking like the winter break will likely feel similar as well. We are working on ideas around how we can try to do our part at BEH to bring some cheer to the holiday season and hopefully we can find ways to bring a little more joy and connection for your family during this time.
     
    Giving Tuesday:
    Tuesday, December 1st our amazing Mississippi Business District will be donating 10% of their sales to our school. These amazing businesses have always been so supportive of our school and never hesitate when it comes to giving back to the community. We hope you will support them on December 1st and everyday as they too work to navigate through these challenging times.  
     
    TAG Nominations:
    Parent/Guardians that would like to nominate their student to be considered for Talented and Gifted (TAG) services, please complete this form by December 4th, 2020. The district will not be accepting parent/guardian nominations after this date.  
     
    Coffee Chat:
    This Friday is the first Friday of the month, which means that it is Coffee Chat time. Anyone that would like to join me to discuss what our school has been up to, what we have planned, ask questions, or have a dialogue around what we could do to better serve you, please join me at this link on Friday, December 4th at 8:00 AM. I will do better this month at sending out a reminder on Thursday to remind everyone and get the link out again.
     
    Chromebook/Lego Family Survey:
    Thank you to those that already completed this survey via this link or through a BEH staff reaching out. If you have not already completed this survey and have received a Chromebook or Lego set from the school for use during distance learning, please take a quick minute and complete these few questions. We received hundreds of Chromebooks specifically for our school and Lego sets from a grant and they would like feedback from families around how it has helped during this time.
     

    SEL Update:

    In Morning Meetings, we will be teaching the 6th of our 12 Tools this week: the Quiet/Safe Place Tool, which aligns with our Core Value of Perseverance.  Our Learning Target for students is: “I can use my Quiet/Safe Place Tool by going to a real or imagined quiet place.” 

    We invite you to review this Quiet/Safe Place home letter, share with your children what your own quiet/safe place looks like, and help them identify a personal real or imagined quiet/safe place.  Families can watch a Quiet/Safe Place Tool mini-lesson on our BEH YouTube Channel , and the mini-lesson can also be viewed by students on Seesaw in their new “Week of 11/30 to 12/4 Toolbox-Quiet/Safe Place Tool” Activity.  

    Meal Resources:
    Every Monday from 10:30-12:30 at the corner of Mississippi and Beech, Airway Science is handing out boxes of 5 dinners per child for families to pick-up for free. Here is a flyer with more detail.
     
    In addition PPS has our meal program back up and running again this week on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 3:00-4:30 in our parking lot. Come by and pick-up meals for all children in your household each day free of charge. These are actual meals like we would be serving if we were in school in person. Distribution will continue until winter break and on the Friday before winter break they will be distributing food boxes to help families get through the break with meal options. 
     
    Holiday Family Support:
    SEI, PTA, and BEH staff will be working to support BEH families with resources moving into the winter break as well. If your family could benefit from additional food boxes, gift support, clothes, etc. please reach out and let me know so that I can ensure that you are added to our list to work to get resources and support organized for. 
     
    Additionally, if your family could benefit from internet support and/or a personal chromebook for your student to access and keep even after we return from distance learning please let me or Robert know. SEI has some resources for families specifically around internet and Chromebook access.
     
    It was great to join in some of the morning meetings this morning and hear what students have been up to and hear how excited they were to see their teachers and friends after a week away. I look forward to continuing to improve our service to you and your families as we move into the last month of 2020 and hope that we can help to make 2020 end on a more positive note for our BEH community.
     
    Take care,

    Hello BEH Families, 
     
    With no school this week and parent/teacher conferences in full swing, it is one of those times when I often pause to reflect. It is hard to believe where we are and all that has been going on this year. Conferences are typically a time when we are working to connect and improve our communication systems between home and school. This year we have the same goal, but more barriers to this success. My hope is that we are all able to connect and share what is working and not working and brainstorm what we can do to improve our practices both with serving your children, as well as in serving you. This year has helped accentuate how connected students, families, and schools need to be in order to be successful in educating our students effectively. Please share with our teachers or reach out to me if you have any thoughts or ideas around how we can best serve your family this year.
     
    Chromebook/Lego Feedback:
    I wanted to remind families that if you have received a Chromebook or Lego set from BEH this year we would love to have you complete this short survey about how that has helped with your connection to school and education for your students. We received a grant giving us these resources and the companies involved (First Book and Intel) would love to hear how it has impacted the community. Last week I sent the link that was only accessible to PPS accounts, I believe I fixed that issue now.
     
    Instruments/Legos:
    We have managed to get nearly all of our families either a Lego set or an instrument this quarter. If your child got an instrument or a Lego set, please note that these are for use until winter break, when we will start working on collecting them so that we can disinfect them and rotate them for distribution again following the break. If you got an instrument you are engaging in music class or with Aaron Nigel Smith around how to engage and learn with them. Our 3rd grade received a simple machines Lego set that our STEAM team created lessons and activities around for students to enhance their STEAM work. Here is a link for any 3rd grade parents (or anyone else) that would like to see how the concepts from these kits can be connected. After the break we will be working to get some more Lego kits out to students for engagement and structured lessons. Currently our PK students also got some Early Simple Machine sets to engage with during this time as well.
     
    TAG Nominations:
    If you believe your child should be assessed for Talented and Gifted services please complete this district form by December 4th. This is also linked on our school website on the front page.
     
    Parent Reading Workshop:
    The Humanities Department is offering a virtual workshop in collaboration with Read by 4th, Drexel University School of Education, and AIM Institute designed to help parents grow their grade K-3 students into strong readers. This workshop will have ideas for making reading fun with the ultimate goal of reading by 4th grade. Parents will receive a workbook to use during and after this workshop.

    Site Council:
    I am looking for one more parent to join this team for this year. Our work will be focused around what we are doing as a school to improve our students' academic growth and families' connection to school during distance learning and moving beyond. We will meet virtually once a month with a team that consists of staff and families to review current practices and inform our decisions and adjustments we make moving forward. Please reach out if you have any interest or questions regarding participating on this team.
     
    YouTube Channel:
    If you have not visited recently, the BEH YouTube Channel is getting new content each week focused on our social emotional learning, recognizing students who are demonstrating our core values, and other fun information and videos. This could give you and your family something to review over the next few days off if you are looking for something to fill the time. Keep in mind that Dreambox, Lexia and SeeSaw are also options to engage in even when school is not in session.
     
    Holiday Food Support:
    If you are in need of some holiday food support, please reach out to us or let the PTA know. They will be working on getting food boxes built for families that need them before the winter break next month.
     
    Take care and be safe,
     
    Mr. Kaveh and Ms. Turner

    As the Covid cases climb, please be careful and safe. I have heard of many positive Covid cases throughout our community over the past week and I want to make sure that all of our community is safe and healthy. We will do our best to support during this time and continue to collaborate with our PTA and SEI to meet families needs. If your family needs any food, bill, or other support during these times please don't hesitate to reach out so that we can work to connect resources for you.
     
    Wednesday Material Distribution:
    With the newest statewide restrictions, we are operating with extremely reduced staff in the building for the foreseeable future. As a result, we will not be hosting specific pick-up times this Wednesday. If your child's teacher does have materials for you to pick-up this week, we will have them available Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from the main entrance. Simply come by anytime between 8:30 and 4:00, press the call button by the main door and we will bring the materials out to you.
     
    2nd Quarter Supplies & Instrument/Lego Distribution:
    We have been working hard to get 2nd quarter materials that include either a Lego kit or a musical instrument out to all students. Thank you to all of the staff that have been helping with delivery and to families that have made it to pick them up over the past week. We will be working this week to get the remaining supplies ready and sent out to families this week. It has been increasingly challenging as this has aligned with the increased restrictions in staff availability. If you have not yet received your child's bag we will likely be reaching out to you this week. If you are available to pick-up, please call and let us know and you can pick-up M-F this week between 8:30-3:30. 
     
    Principal's Secretary:
    I wanted to let everyone know that we officially have a new Principal's Secretary. It has been a bit of a journey in getting there, but in the end I think we will all find it was worth the wait. Elissa Didier joined our team officially last week and will be taking over the role and responsibilities that April had for us for so many years. Elissa comes to us most recently from Roseway Heights where she was the Principal's Secretary. Previous to that she was the Secretary for PPS Headstart for several years. We are so excited to have her join our BEH family, she is not only coming in with knowledge and enthusiasm for the role, but she is also a part of the community. She lives in the neighborhood with her family and grew up in Portland, attending PPS as a child as well. Please join me in welcoming her to our BEH family in these very difficult to connect times.
     
    BEH Thanksgiving Week:
    This week our climate team wanted to roll out a focus on giving thanks as a community. You will find a brief slide show that teachers will be utilizing to introduce the ideas and bring awareness to what we all have to be thankful for and how we can demonstrate that to those around us.
     
    SEL Focus this Week:
    Teachers and social emotional support staff will be teaching the 5th of our 12 Tools this week: the Listening Tool, which aligns with our Core Value of Integrity.  We invite you to review this  Listening Tool home letter and remind each other to practice the Using Our Words tool when family members feel frustrated or get into conflicts.  You can also watch this Listening Tool video lesson from our SEL team and a Read Aloud from our librarian Ms. Cardenas--Lacey Walker, Nonstop Talker.    
     
    No School Next Week:
    There are no live classes or new assignments next week. One of the nice things about virtual learning is that even though there is no school next week any previous assignments, Lexia, and Dreambox are still available on line if families would like to maintain a routine during any portion of this week. This can also be utilized as a time to catch-up for any families that would like to work on catching up on some previous assignments. Of course, you can also choose to just take the week off and disconnect from these screens for a week as well.
     
    Conferences:
    Teachers will be working long days on Monday and Tuesday of next week to host parent/teacher conferences with all of their students. If you have not already scheduled your conference with your children's teachers please reach out to them and book a time with them now.
     
    PTA Fundraising:

    PTA Meeting:
    Our monthly PTA meeting is this Wednesday; November 18th starting at 5:30. Here is the link for the meeting. The PTA will be reviewing and voting on the budget as well as getting updates from their work with the food pantry, Harvest Parade, and any upcoming fundraisers and events. I will also provide an update around what we have been doing schoolwide as well. 
     
    It has been great to see many of our students in live meetings and I am hopeful that some of the added live opportunities for students are helping them to get through this challenging and often isolating time. If you feel like your child could benefit from some increased live virtual engagement opportunities please let us know and we can connect or create opportunities for them.
     
    Take care and have a safe week,
     
    Mr. Kaveh and Ms. Turner

    11/9/2020
     
    Hello BEH Families,

    This has been another wild week to add to the many previous in 2020. We seem to still be working through the election from nearly a week ago and now are seeing some of the highest Covid numbers in Oregon since the pandemic began. I am hopeful that you are all staying healthy and finding ways to cope during these times. 
     
    The governor did issue some direction in response to the increasing pandemic numbers and asked for more workers to find ways to work from home during these next couple of weeks. This is impacting the number of staff that we have at BEH daily to support with distribution and in-person support. On Friday we began delivering 2nd quarter materials, musical instruments, and Lego sets to families, but we still have many more to distribute. If you are available to pick-up at the school that would help with our goal of accomplishing this in the next week. We will continue to try and deliver those that need delivery, but we may be delayed in accomplishing this due to the reduced staff available.
     
    Schedule Shifts:
    This week is the first week of the 2nd quarter. Based on feedback and student engagement numbers, three of our grade levels shifted their schedules this week to focus more of their academic times in the morning and create some additional consistency around times each day and the nicknames needed to join. If you have a 2nd, 3rd or 4th grade student you likely already have heard about these shifts, if not please reach out to your student's teacher and they can make sure you have an updated live schedule.
     
    Priority Assignments:
    Additionally, some feedback that we have received from students and families is that at times it can feel overwhelming to see the number of assignments that need to be completed in SeeSaw. Our teachers of course are working to ensure that there are a variety of academic options and assignments available to students, but understand that not everyone will be able to get to everything each day. As a result, teachers will be working to label specific assignments as "priority" in order to help students and families to identify where to start and what they should do first if you are feeling overwhelmed by the amount being offered.
     
    Musician In Residence:
    Our K-2 students will be starting a residency with Aaron Nigel Smith this week. Mr. Todd is working on getting calendar invites to students to join him live this week for an introduction and kick-off session. The next few weeks he will be offering a mix of recorded lessons and live sessions for kindergarten, first grade, and second grade. You can see who he is and get some info about it from the recording of our Music Info Night from last week on our YouTube Channel. Additionally, all of these students are getting percussion instruments to have at home with them to incorporate in your learning.
     
    Wednesday:
    Don't forget that there is no school on Wednesday in order to observe the Veterans Day Holiday. This means that there will be no material distribution or meal distribution on Wednesday of this week. PPS will distribute additional food today to fill the gap and provide meals through Friday.
     
    Coffee Chat:
    This Friday morning I will be hosting our monthly coffee chat for families to come and hear what we have been up to, ask questions, etc. Here is the link to join at 8:00 AM on Friday morning.
     
    SEL Focus:
    Teachers and social emotional support staff will be teaching the 4th of our 12 Tools this week: the Using Our Words Tool, which aligns with our Core Value of Community.  We invite you to review this Using Our Words home letter and remind each other to practice the Using Our Words tool when family members feel frustrated or get into conflicts.  You can also watch this Using Our Words Tool video lesson from our SEL team and two Read Alouds from our librarian Ms. Cardenas--Words are Not for Hurting and Martin’s Big Words.   
     
    Grade Level Clubs:
    This week our support staff will be launching weekly "club" times for students to connect with each other with some staff supervision virtually around preferred non-academic topics. Staff will be sharing the nicknames with students to join in if they are interested.
     
    YouTube Channel:
    Don't forget to check-out or YouTube Channel weekly. We are often sharing recordings of any school-wide meetings we have, our weekly SEL lessons, and the student nominees for each week along with an interview with one of them each week.
     
    PTA Update:

    It's wreath season! The BEH PTA is selling evergreen items, including wreaths, now through November 16th. Please visit behptawreathshop.com to view the many wreath and swag options. Please share with family, friends and colleagues. Questions? Contact us at behpta620@gmail.com or 971-237-7885


    Family Connection Survey:
    I just wanted to share out the family connection survey that our school climate team was using to gather information around how our families are feeling around our supports and the connection to the school. They have been conducting these both electronically and on paper, so if you already completed it you do not need to do so again, but if you have not yet shared your thoughts, please do. We will be taking this information and using it to guide our work moving forward.
     
    Giving Thanks:
    November 16 to 20th we will be focusing on all the ways we can express gratitude with our BEH Thanksgiving Week.  Preview what we have planned by reviewing our Thanksgiving Week Flyers, which includes directions for posting a recording on Flipgrid of how you are giving thanks! BEH Students, Families, and Staff are encouraged to participate all next week!
     
    I hope you are all doing well and we look forward to seeing those of you that are available on Friday at our monthly virtual coffee chat at 8:00.
     
    Take care, 
    Mr. Kaveh and Ms. Turner

    Hello BEH Families,
     
    This week we will be launching into an election week and the last week of the academic quarter. Our teachers will be providing space and time for students to discuss and process the election results. Many classes have already been discussing the election process and covering information around the government and how it functions. To follow the theme of 2020 I expect this process to likely be drawn out for some time and be the focus of conversation for many weeks to come.

    In addition to the election we have a lot happening at BEH this week and we will be working hard to get ready to start a second quarter of distance learning with some fresh materials and new opportunities for engagement.
     
    SEL Update:
    There will be no new Toolbox tool introduced this week as teachers and SEL staff will be focusing on community building circles this week.  One great practice that can be done at home is to create a visual circle space that can be your family’s 1) Caring Circle or 2) Gratitude Circle.  Draw a circle and then have each family member tape a note / stick note in the circle of 1) someone they are caring about or 2) something they are grateful for.
     
    Weekly SEL Student Recognition:
    Teachers are nominating a student every week who are leading by example and demonstrating the understanding and use of the Toolbox Tools being introduced each week as well as embodying our core values as a school. You can catch the students called out each week on our YouTube Channel. Also, starting this week we chose one of the students nominated from the previous week to share what they have learned and how they show these skills in a one-on-one interview with me.
     
    Family Connection Survey Form:
    Our Social Emotional Support team has been wanting to reach out and see whether families are feeling connected, supported and to gather ideas of how we can improve our practices. Here is a survey they created to help gather some of this information and help guide our work. If you have a minute please fill it out for us, it is very short and should be quick to complete.
     
    Black Youth Crisis Recovery Group:
    The district is rolling out a safe affinity space for Black students to unpack any trauma and grief that they may be dealing with during this time. The groups will be co-facilitated by Ms. Shelton a previous BEH staff and is open to any Black/African American student K-12 in PPS. Here is more information if you are interested in exploring this support.
     
    Wednesday Material Pick-Up:
    We will have staff set-up in the parking lot from 10:00-12:00 and 3:00-5:00 this Wednesday to distribute any materials that teachers may have for students to access work away from screens this week. Keep in mind, that next week there will be no distribution due to there not being any school for Veterans Day next week.
     
    K-2 Music Night:
    Mr. Todd will be facilitating a Virtual Music Night this Thursday at 5:30. This will be the launch of a residency with Aaron Nigel Smith. He is an amazing artist that we have collaborated with in the past and he will be working with our K-2 students virtually through the winter break. Our 3-5 residency will be planned for after the winter break.
     
    Friday Supply Delivery:
    We are working on getting 2nd quarter supply kits assembled and ready to be delivered by this Friday. If we can get these all assembled we will plan to have staff delivering these supplies along with a musical instrument or a Lego kit for every student to engage with until winter break. We will be reaching out to families on Friday as we get prepared to deliver these items to families.
     
    Site Council:
    Typically we have a team consisting of parents, staff, community members and school administration to collaborate on planning our supports and tracking alignment with our School Improvement Plan goals. This year has proved challenging to recruit families to participate on this team. I offered it out at our last PTA meeting, but did not get any interest at that point. Typically we meet once a month for about 90 minutes. Last year we met from 3:30-5:00. We will work out the exact logistics once we have a committed team. If this is a team that you would be interested in participating in let me know, we are looking for 3 parents/families representing various grade levels.
     
    PTA Wreaths:
    It's wreath season! The BEH PTA is selling evergreen items, including wreaths, now through November 16th. Please visit behptawreathshop.com and view this bulletin for more details. Please share with family, friends and colleagues. Questions? Contact us at behpta620@gmail.com or 971-237-7885. 
     
    PK/K Mindfulness Group:
    PK and K students and families: Please join Mrs. Brenda every Thursday at 3pm for S.N.A.C.K. time (mindfulness group). If you are interested, please email Mrs. Brenda at beads@pps.net and she will send you the link for the Zoom meeting.  
     
    Friday Planning Day:
    No school this Friday for teacher planning, this means no live lessons or groups on Friday. Our teachers will be working to complete this quarters conference forms that will be reviewed with families at conferences on Monday (11/23) and Friday (11/24).
     
    Thank you all for your continued engagement and support. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions or thoughts around how we can support your family.
     
    Take Care, 
    Mr. Kaveh and Ms. Turner

    Hello BEH Families,

    It is hard to believe that we are about to close out the month of October and nearing the end of the first quarter of the school year. As we get ready to roll into our second quarter of distance learning, we are hoping to provide some new and engaging opportunities to our students and families at BEH. Many of our grade levels are looking at how to improve their schedules and how lessons are being delivered and organized for families. 
     
    In addition, we will be looking at getting out some engaging activities and supplies for home use with all of our families. Currently we are looking at coordinating a home delivery of some second quarter supplies and a musical instrument or Lego engineering set for every student to engage and learn with in the second quarter. 
     
    Support Staff Intro:
    Some of our support staff have created a slideshow introduction about themselves. Essentially the staff that you would have likely met in the halls or within your classroom as supports were needed, have started putting their pictures and some interesting facts about themselves into this slideshow to help introduce them to our new students and families.
     
    Pandemic EBT Update:
    Here is the info and contact for support around meal benefits, how to find out if you qualify, and a contact for support around these benefits.
     
    Social Emotional Learning:
    Teachers and social emotional support staff will be teaching the third of our 12 Tools this week: the Breathing Tool, which aligns with our Core Value of Perseverance.  We invite you to review this Breathing Tool home letter and to practice taking deep belly breaths with your child. You can also watch this Breathing Tool video lesson from our SEL team, a short skit where Ms. Turner role plays with Mr. G. who pretends to be a student, and a Read Aloud of Anh’s Anger from our librarian Ms. Cardenas.   
     
    Magnet/Charter School Application Window:
    To apply to a Magnet (lottery school) you must fill out an application on line.  Applications can be found at the Enrollment and Transfer page at PPS.net.  Dates to apply will be from November 12th through December 11th. This is for 5th grade families that want to consider other options for middle schools next year.
     
    Meal Service Update:
    Starting November 2, our grab-and-go curbside serving locations will be open from 3 to 4:30 p.m. every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Some schools might shift their serving location on campus to help keep employees dry and visible. To see the full list of meal sites, please visit the Nutrition Sites During Distance Learning website

    Finally, we are re-opening access to home meal deliveries, a service for PPS families that are not near a meal site or need assistance accessing meals. To request meal delivery service, please complete the request form. We continue to assess the capacity of both the Nutrition Services and Transportation departments and will keep you apprised of any updates we make to our services.

    If you have any questions about our meal service, please contact us at nutritionservices@pps.net.

    Wednesday Supply/Material Pick-Up:
    Don't forget to come by the school on Wednesdays from 10:00-12:00 or 3:00-5:00 to pick-up any work your students' teacher may have prepared for them, get supplies, and/or access the BEH PTA food pantry.
     
    Thursday PTA Harvest Parade:
    Our PTA and many of our staff will be out lining the parking lot for a socially distanced celebration. Families can drive, walk or ride through the parking lot and say hello. They will have treats, BEH shirts, BEH masks, and much more free to every student that comes through. Costumes are encouraged.

    Please don't hesitate to reach out if there are any areas where you think we could better support your family and/or ways that you would like to support some community building activities for our BEH students and families.
     
    Take Care, 
    Mr. Kaveh and Ms. Turner

    Hello BEH Families,
     
    It was fun to be able to watch all of the spirit week videos and participation from students, families, and staff last week. I am still waiting to hear the final results of which grade band won the competition. Last I saw 3rd-5th grade was in the lead with participation. Ms. Turner and I are still eagerly awaiting to hear who the winners were and what the grade band chooses for us to perform as a reward.
     
    Social Emotional Learning:
    Teachers and social emotional support staff will be teaching the second of our 12 Tools this week: the Garbage Can Tool.  We invite you to review this Garbage Can Tool home letter and to have conversations with your child this week about letting the little things go. You can also watch this Garbage Can video lesson from our SEL team, a quick funny skit using the Garbage Can Tool from our KG team, and a Read Aloud of You Get What You Get from our librarian.  
     
    This week will be our first nominations of students demonstrating our SEL skills, as teachers will be nominating students who demonstrated empathy over the last week and we will be recognizing those students later this week through our YouTube Channel.
     
    Academic Information Night:
    This Wednesday at 5:30, we will be hosting an academic information night. In a typical school year we have in-person nights to share information about how we utilize programming around; Title I, English as a Second Language, Special Education, and Talented and Gifted for our students. We will be sharing information about all of these services on Wednesday and have breakout opportunities to connect with our teacher leaders around specific questions/information. This will be virtual and we will all be starting in the same Google Meet for the initial information and then breakout meetings will be shared during the meeting. Just log-in at 5:30 if you would like to join. We will also be recording the information and will post it on our YouTube Channel for any families that are not able to make the live meeting.

    PTA Updates:
    We're raising money to support the Boise-Eliot Humboldt School (BEH) PTA. Visit Chipotle at 704 NE Weidler St in Portland on Wednesday, October 21 from 4:00pm - 8:00pm. Follow one of the steps below and 33% of the proceeds from your order will be donated to the BEH PTA:

Costumes are encouraged and PTA will be distributing treats, school shirts, masks, and more to all students that parade through with their families. More information to come next week.
     
    Material Distribution:
    This week we will be distributing headphones for any student that needs them. This will be distributed during our usual pick-up times on Wednesday from 10:00-12:00 and 3:00-5:00. As usual, there will also be any materials or work that teachers have communicated about to give students work options away from the screens during the week.
     
    Opt-In Student/Family Directory:
    I have been continuing to add students to grade level contact lists for families to share phone numbers and/or emails in order to create connections and share ideas/resources as the virtual school year continues. If you have not completed the form and opted-in you will not have access, so if you are interested in joining please complete the short form.
     
    Airway Science Free Meal Mondays:
    Airway Science will be hosting a free meal program every Monday from 10:30 AM-12:30 PM at our north Portland location. Food will be distributed on a first come, first served basis to kids 0-18 years old. Each student will be given five frozen meals for the week from Fresh n' Local Foods. All of this information and more can be found on the flyer.
     
    I hope you are all staying healthy, safe, and sane during this extended virtual reality. Mr. Todd is working hard to come up with some options for students to engage away from screens through music and STEAM in the coming weeks. We look forward to being ready to roll out some instrument and LEGO distribution in the next couple weeks and share some recorded lessons to pair with them for students to engage with at home. Stay tuned.
     
    We are looking forward to continuing to brainstorm creative ways to support our students and families. Please continue to share any ideas or thinking you have as the year progresses.

    Take Care, 
    Mr. Kaveh and Ms. Turner

    Hello BEH Families, 
     
    As we all heard last week, we are now going to be in distance learning until at least January 28th. Though this news was not surprising, it was still not easy to hear, as we would all like to be back in person with students. I will still be working with the district around the possibility of getting some Limited In-Person Instruction options going before January 28th. This will most likely take a bit to work through and will most likely target our youngest students. I will keep you posted if we are able to make any movement on this. Until then, we will continue to offer support at BEH for students to engage both virtually and through tangible materials and options.
     
    Spirit Week:
    Today is the first day of our Virtual Spirit Week. Each day there is a different theme and way for students to participate. Here are the slides explaining the week. Hopefully students can post their participation in the linked Flipgrid within the slides. The grade levels with the highest participation will get to choose an activity for Ms. Turner, Mr. Kaveh or another staff to record and post for the school to view. This could be choosing a song for one of us to karaoke and share, having a staff replicate a TikTok video, or have a staff get a pie to the face on video. 
     
    Opt-In Family Directory:
    I shared out the contact information with families that signed up at each grade level on Friday. This is a doc that contains the student name, family contact name, phone number, and email. If you would like access to these contacts to connect with other families who have students at the same grade level as your child, please complete and submit this form and I will add you to the contact list and share the doc with you.
     
    PTA Info:
    Our first PTA meeting will be this Wednesday, October 14th at 5:30. Here is the link to the meeting. This is a great opportunity to meet other BEH families and hear about the planning and upcoming work that PTA is involved in.
     
    PTA is doing their first fundraiser with Chipotle next week, here is the info:

    Wednesday Material Distribution:
    Don't forget to come by on Wednesdays between 10:00-12:00 and 3:00-5:00 to pick-up any materials or resources that may be available from your child's teachers. This is also your time to pick-up or trade library book bags from our BEH librarian Ms. Cardenas.
     
    Flu Shot Info:
    Our school nurse shared this info with me to pass along the importance of getting the flu shot this year and how it can help prevent the spread of illness. Spanish and English translations are included.
     
    SUN/SEI Class Offerings:
    SUN/SEI is organizing a fun BEH only kindergarten opportunity for our families to engage in weekly family activities as a community. Here is the info regarding how to sign up for this.
     
    There are also several SUN/SEI Virtual after-school class options available this fall as well. The classes started this week. Here is the information to register.
     
    Social/Emotional Learning Update:

    Teachers and social emotional support staff will be teaching the first of our 12 Tools this week: the Empathy Tool.  We invite you to have conversations with your child this week about naming feelings and seeing things from someone else's perspective by "walking in someone else's shoes."  Click here for more information and an activity you can do to help develop the Empathy Tool at home.  You can also watch this Empathy Tool video lesson from our SEL team and a Read Aloud of One by Kathryn Otoshi from our librarian.


    Student Awards:
    We will be starting our student recognition around our SEL work this week as well. Teachers will be looking for students who demonstrate community/empathy this week and nominate students for recognition next week. Our plan is to recognize nominated students both through a weekly announcement on our YouTube Channel each week and then draw one "winner" to have a recorded one-on-one interview with me or Ms. Turner that we will post in the following weeks message. All nominated students will also be able to pick out an incentive at the following Wednesday distribution day.
     
    STEAM and Music Nights:
    Mr. Todd is working with us and the STEAM team around coordinating a STEAM night as well as a music night in the coming weeks. These will launch our distribution of musical instruments and LEGO engineering projects for students to be able to checkout and work through virtual lessons at home. We are working out the logistics around getting every grade level a take-home activity to be working with that will be centered around music and/or STEAM.
     
    I look forward to continuing to be creative in our planning and implementation of our distance learning at BEH and am hopeful that we are providing engaging and supportive opportunities for families and students to engage. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have ideas or feedback for us around how we could continue to improve our practice.
     
    Take Care,
    Mr. Kaveh and Ms. Turner

    Hello BEH Families,
     
    It was good to catch those of you that were able to make it to our Coffee Chat on Friday, we recorded the first portion of that meeting and posted it to our YouTube Channel so that families that missed it could access the shared information portion of the meeting at a later time. One thing we did discuss during the question/discussion portion of the meeting was finding times that work best for families to potentially have family engagement events. Here is a place to document your family's preference for possible family engagement times/days.
     
    PPS Closed on Friday:
    There will be no classes or meal distribution on Friday. PPS is closed for the statewide inservice day. Many teachers and staff will be attending PD, volunteering, etc. on Friday, but no classes or official PPS work will be happening.
     
    Wednesday Distribution:
    We will again have material distribution this Wednesday from 10:00-12:00 and 3:00-5:00 in the parking lot of the school. Your student's teachers will let you know if there are grade level specific materials to be picked-up each week. Schoolwide there will be a box of crayons available to every student through Ms. Larkin-Miller for use on any art projects coming up. Library book bag pick-up/drop-off will also be available. If you checked out a bag of books last week, you will likely still be reading them and can keep them for another week or two if needed, but anyone who was not able to pick-up last week or is ready to refresh their book choices can come by and get library book bags during these times.
     
    Social Emotional Learning Update:
    Our social emotional support staff have started pushing into class meetings and helping develop our school wide lessons around feelings/emotions and effective strategies to manage them. Our first few videos explaining the social emotional learning tools we will be using are up on our YouTube Channel now and this week classes are working on learning about feelings/emotions. Next week we will start our focus on Empathy.
     
    Spirit Week:
    Next week we will be launching our first Spirit Week of the year. Most of the themes for the week were chosen by our student council last spring. We added an empathy focused day at the end of the week for students to show off what they will have learned through the week. The details can be found here. Teachers will also be sharing this with students and families this week in preparation for next week's festivities.
     
    SUN/SEI Fall Programming:
    There will be fall after school virtual enrichment programming offered through SEI for all ages. Here is a link to the registration form in English and Spanish. Additionally, BEH specific kindergarten families will be getting some engagement opportunities focused specifically around building community. Information for that will go out with materials on Wednesday at the material pick-up times. If you can't make that, contact your student's teacher for details.
     
    PTA Date Reminders:
    First PTA Meeting will be on Wednesday, October 14th at 5:30. Link will be shared next week.
     
    PTA Fall Drive Through social event will be held on October 29th at 5:30pm. More details will be shared following the PTA meeting next week.
     
    We are continuing to work on smoothing out our processes and supporting students and families with overcoming the technology challenges and finding ways to connect as a community. Currently we are working on trying to get all students at BEH headphones for use with their Chromebooks. We should have an update on that in the next week. Also, I will be sending out our initial opt-in grade level student directories later this week. Only families that have completed this information will be included on the sheet and have the sheet shared with them. I will continue to share the form out with families and as more families opt-in we will continue to add to the grade level lists.
     
    Thank you all for your continued perseverance and as always reach out if you have any questions or thoughts around how we can best serve you and your students.

    Take care,
    Mr. Kaveh & Ms. Turner

    Hello BEH Families,
     
    As we embark on another week of distance learning we will have yet another shift in planning.
     
    Previously we all received messaging that we will be starting MAP testing this week. As a result teachers prepped and we were planning as a school around how to roll out the implementation of this. This morning we got news that the district will not be conducting MAP testing this fall and we will instead continue our focus on instruction and more teacher level assessment of student learning.
     
    I believe there will be more consideration around how this could be done moving forward, but at this time maintaining a focus on instruction and continuing to support students academically is the best course of action. As a building we are working every week to ensure that we are creating opportunities for students to show their understanding of the standards being taught, reviewing student work as teacher teams, and planning future instruction based on this. Maintaining these routines and structures for our students and teachers is crucial in moving our work forward and continuing to improve our practice.
     
    Here are the updates for the week:
     
    Optional BEH Student Directory:
    Last week I shared the sign-up form for families that would like to opt-in to a grade level student directory to be able to share contact info between families of students in the same grade. I am sharing it again here, as we are hopeful to begin constructing and be ready to share them with the families that opt-in by next week. Currently we have 29 submissions, which spread across grade levels means an average of about 5 families per grade level. If you would like to be included in your child's grade level directory don't forget to complete this brief form.
     
    Latino Network Free COVID Testing:
    Latino Network is hosting a free COVID Test Event on October 1st and October 3rd this week. You can find the details linked here.
     
    Material Pick-up Wednesday:
    Last week we had our first Wednesday material pick-up at BEH. This will continue every Wednesday (as long as it is a school day) for the remainder of distance learning. Remember to check-in with your student's teacher to see if they will have any optional materials for pick-up each week. The pick-up windows on Wednesdays are from 10:00-12:00 and 3:00-5:00. We will be distributing from the parking lot and if you come during the 3:00-5:00 time slot you can also pick-up meals for any children you are caring for. 
     
    Library Book Bags:
    This week will be our first BEH Library Book pick-up week. Ms. Cardenas has prepared bags of 6 books grouped by grade levels to be "checked-out" from our library. The intended check-out time is 2 weeks, but we will be offering pick-up/exchange during our material distribution (Wednesdays from 10:00-12:00 and 3:00-5:00) each week. You can come and pick-up your first bag this Wednesday and then when you are done enjoying them, you would bring them back on another Wednesday and exchange them for a bag of 6 new books to take home. We are excited to start getting our books back into our students hands.
     
    Family Friday/Coffee Chat:
    This Friday is our typical monthly Family Friday and Coffee Chat. For new families, what this looks like in a typical school year, is that families come in to school early (8:00) and play games, eat some treats, and drink some coffee/juice. Then when students go to class at 8:45, parents that are available and interested join me and/or Ms. Turner in the staff lounge for a discussion around what is happening at the school and what we can do to support each other moving forward. 
     
    Due to the current reality, most families are not available after students begin class, as you are all often helping your students to engage in the learning from home. As a result, I am going to be hosting just the Coffee Chat portion of this meeting this week from 8:00-8:45. Here is a link to that meeting. I will send it out again on Friday morning. At this meeting we will discuss some of the work we are doing and planning moving forward at BEH. We will also discuss some options for shifting our Family Fridays and making them work best for families moving forward. Ms. Morgan is eager to get back to hosting some family bingo, so in the interim she will be working out the kinks in this so that she is ready to assist in making this happen as part of our Family Friday plans later this fall.
     
    Math Shelf for PK & K:
    This year, we have a focused math program for our PK and Kinder students called Math Shelf. Since this is a new resource and families, students, and teachers did not have access or practice with it previously I wanted to provide some guidance around how to access the program moving forward. Here are a couple videos to help get your PK and K students started on the program; Spanish version and English Version.

    Upcoming PTA Events:
    As we begin October this week, I wanted to make sure and keep a couple of PTA dates on your calendars for the month.
     
    The First BEH PTA Meeting of the year will be on Wednesday, October 14th, at 5:30.  I will share the meeting link with you in my weekly message on the week of the meeting.
     
    BEH PTA plans to host a fall drive through social event on October 29th from 5:30-7:00. We are working out the details, but it will be an opportunity for families to bring students through and do a version of the usual Harvest Fair/Trunk or Treat with many treats and surprises. More details will follow soon.
     
    Thank you all for continuing to model perseverance, community, and integrity for our students as we navigate these challenging times. I appreciate the regular communication and hope that we are able to continue finding ways to connect and support our students through whatever challenges the world decides to present us with.

    Take care and have a great week,
    Mr. Kaveh & Ms. Turner

    9/21/2020
     
    Hello BEH Families, 
     
    It was great to see many of you at our Virtual Back to School Night last week. If you missed it, Mr. Robert is working on getting the recorded information portion loaded to our YouTube Channel so that families can review the information shared around our school plans and district information around distance learning this fall.
     
    As we move into our second week of academic instruction, it is seeming like students, families, and teachers are getting their routines figured out and tech issues resolved as we are finding that we have far less calls each morning about connecting students to their meetings and virtual classrooms. If you are still having concerns or challenges, please don't hesitate to reach out and let us know so that we can provide support in getting all of our students connected to their teachers and the online classroom.

    Here are the updates for the week:
     
    Optional BEH Student Directory -
    We have had many families asking for a way to connect with other families while we are in distance learning, essentially trying to find a way to create connections that may have been formed through seeing each other at community events, in the halls, etc. We have created this form for families to complete if they would want to be included in a grade level student directory to connect with other grade level families. Once we get responses from families that would like to be included we will start building grade level directories that we will share with those families that choose to participate. This will create a way for families to share contact information with other families in your child's grade level so that there can me more connection between families during this time. If you choose not to participate your families contact info will not be included in the directory for that grade level. Grade level lists will only be shared with grade level parents that choose to participate and have a student at that grade level.
     
    Material/Resource Pick-Up -
    This week we will be starting our first material/resource pick-up at BEH. We will have staff in the side parking lot on Wednesdays from 10:00-12:00 and 3:00-5:00 with optional materials & resources. Your teachers will communicate if there is something specific that you may want to pick-up for your child(ren). There may not be grade level materials to pick-up every week, so stay in contact with your teachers to know when and what will be available. This is an option so that teachers can provide opportunities for families as options/alternatives to some of the digital engagement activities. 
     
    Student Schedules -
    Every student/family should now have a schedule for their school day that includes when their live meeting times are and what work should be completed through SeeSaw, Dreambox, Lexia, etc. If you do no know your student's live meeting times, please reach out and let us know. We are working on creating a live meeting schedule for all students to ehlp track the times and how to access them, as everything else can be done based on family scheduling needs. If you are not connected to SeeSaw Family reach out to your teacher and ask to be invited as this is replacing Class Dojo from last year. This will help you stay ahead of the communication with teachers and be informed on how your child is doing with the academic expectations this fall. 
     
    Thank you for your continued support and please let us know if there is anything we can do to make this virtual learning experience as successful as possible.
     
    Take care, 
    Kaveh

    Hello BEH Families, 

    It feels like with each week comes  a new challenge. As you hopefully have already heard, PPS closed all school buildings Friday and again today. Instruction is expected to go on as planned, but there may be some shifts due to challenges for staff due to these circumstances. Many of our teachers plan to teach from their rooms daily and have set-up spaces and resources for that. This in combination with internet challenges, families being evacuated from areas with wildfires and the usual family distractions may lead some teachers to need to shift some of their instruction from live to asynchronous while we are not allowed to be in buildings.

    I am hopeful that all of you and your families are safe and finding ways to manage through the continuous challenges being given to us this year. It was amazing to hear from our PTA this weekend and how they were able to shift and support hundreds of N/NE families who were without food due to the closure of PPS meal sites on Friday. Our PTA was able to partner with others to feed over 400 families from Dawson Park this past Saturday and are prepared to continue supporting Portland families who need food moving forward this year.

    A Message from the BEH PTA:

    The BEH PTA would like to welcome you to the 2020-2021 school year! We hope you consider joining us as we continue to support and engage with our BEH community. Our mission is to partner with parents, teachers, and community-members in supporting the growth and development of our students. Together we are building a sense of community within our school and empowering our students to reach their full potential as productive, responsible citizens of their own communities.

    Join us at our first general (virtual) meeting of the school year on Wednesday, October 14 at 5:30 p.m. Dial in details to follow. We will be discussing plans for the school year including operation of the Food Pantry, Fall Harvest Fair, Education Support, Holiday Food and Toy Drive and Delivery, Fundraising and more! 

    You can become a member of the PTA by either:

    • Registering online at: https://www.oregonpta.org/membershipor,
    • Cash App us at $BEHPTA with you name, re: PTA Membership Dues with email and phone number. Annual dues are $15 for individuals and $25 for families.

    If you know a business or individual who would like to directly support the BEH PTA, please direct them here: https://charity.gofundme.com/behpta or to Cash App at $BEHPTA.

    Please don’t hesitate to contact us at 503-753-2642 or  behpta620@gmail.com if you need access to the Food Pantry or have any questions and join the BEH Family Facebook Group for additional communications and updates. 

    We look forward to connecting with you soon. 

    With Love,

    The BEH PTA

    Yvette Davis (Vice President)
    David Shafer (Secretary)

    Sarann Bielavitz (Treasurer)

    Kim Boston (Fundraising Coordinator)

    Dharma Nicotera (Media Coordinator)  

    Garnet Lester/Jen Wick (Volunteer Coordinators)

     

    Student Medical Needs:

    Our School Nurse wanted to make sure that he and our staff are aware and prepared to support all of our students that may have medical needs. Here is a link around how to keep them informed.

     

    Virtual Back to School Night:

    We will be hosting a virtual Back to School Night this Thursday from 5:30-7:00. We will start as an entire school at 5:30 in this Google Meet. I will send out the live link on Thursday morning as well. Following updates from the school board/district level leadership I will share some of our planning for this year and give time for some questions.

     

    The second half of this meeting will be for families to connect with teachers. I will share links to meet with grade level teams, specials teachers, and other support staff during this time.

     

    Schedules:

    You should have all received your student schedules from your child's teachers at the end of last week. This should help to clarify when students are meeting with teachers for small group times and show when there is flexibility for completing work on your schedule. All teachers will be working to ensure that all whole group academic instruction is shared via recorded lessons so that if families miss their live times they can still access the lesson and have it available for review when there are questions.


    This is all a work in progress and we will do our best to cater to student/family needs whenever possible, so please don't hesitate to reach out to your teachers or me with any questions or thoughts you may have.

     

    It has been amazing to see many families over the course of the soft start weeks and ensure that families have working technology and access to the academic learning sites. I am still holding out hope that we will be able to find ways to connect more in person as the year progresses and we are continuing to do some creative thinking around how to find opportunities for some socially distant learning as well.

     

    Take care and I hope to see you on Thursday, 
    Mr. Kaveh

    Hello BEH Families, 
     
    First, I want to say thank you for your patience with us as we work through the challenges of launching a virtual school year this fall. This is not how any of us would like to be having school, but until we are able to return safely and meet the state requirements to be in person this is the reality we are in. Please continue to call and let us know if there are any issues in getting connected and accessing the learning for your students. Garnet, Ms. Dawson and I will do our best to field your calls and help solve any challenges that arise. One of the goals of the soft start is to give us time to solve these challenges before our academic instruction begins on Monday, September 14th.
     
    Schedules Starting Monday, 9/14
     Our students will follow our typical BEH bell schedule starting on Monday. This does not mean that they will be on computers and in front of a screen all day. We are working to build options away from technology and building breaks into every student's day. I created an overall schedule to show what a typical day will look like for each grade level here. I highlighted the live times in green. You will notice that every grade level starts live at 9:00 AM and ends each day live with our specials teachers. Your teachers will be getting you the individual student schedules by the end of the week. Currently you will see the block that live small groups will occur, but this will be a rotation with each student meeting in small groups with the teacher for 15-30 minutes during that time.
     
    Supply/Curriculum Pick-up
    We saw many of you last Thursday as you came to pick-up school supplies, solve Chromebook issues, and meet teachers. If you did not make it to get your student's supplies or still have Chromebook challenges you need to address, feel free to call the school and let us know when you can come by and we can get you the supplies and help solve any other challenges you may be needing help with. There are staff in the office every school day from 9:00-4:00, some days longer of course. 
     
    We are working on getting a couple of weekly optional pick-up times set-up as we move into the academic year as well and I will give you a detailed update on those times and logistics once we get the final details worked out. This will serve as an opportunity to get some paper/pencil work options for families and a way to get further supplies that families may need as we progress through the school year.
     
    Back to School Night
    We will be hosting a virtual back to school night next Thursday, September 17th from 5:30-7:00. I will be sending out links next week to join, but wanted to remind people to put it on your calendars. We will start as a whole group to discuss district and school level systems and answer any questions and then we will offer opportunities to connect with teachers virtually for the second half of the meeting. We will have a message from the school board and a school board member will be in attendance for the first part of this meeting to answer questions as well.
     
    Pre K
    I have not forgotten about PK this year. It is just taking a bit longer to get our PK students enrolled and logistics figured out. With the reality of the pandemic and most likely the fact that we will first have to return in smaller numbers before a large scale return of students to schools, our PK department has decided to enroll fewer students to start this year so that we can bring back all PK students that are enrolled once we get to an in-person option. As a result, the enrollment process has been much more meticulous. The enrollment department will likely start reaching out to more families this week to get our classes filled and started.
     
    As we wrap up our final week of soft start, our goal is to ensure that all families are set-up and ready for the academic scheduling to begin next week. If you do not have a working Chromebook or need assistance getting internet or a device working please reach out to your teacher or call the main office and we will do our best to support you in getting these challenges resolved.
     
    Thank you and take care, 
    Kaveh

    8/31/2020
     
    Hello BEH Families,
     
    It was amazing to get all of our staff back and start collaborating last week. We were able to get through a lot of information and training on Thursday and Friday and we will work on wrapping up a couple  more days of planning and PD Monday and Tuesday this week. 
     
    Some of you likely started getting calls from teachers on Friday, if not teachers will be continuing to call families this week. Our goal is to get a hold of all families and find ways to connect during the soft start this week and next week.
     
    Soft Start Plans:
    The Soft Start begins for our 1st-5th grade this Wednesday, September 2nd and continues through Friday, September 11th. All of our teachers will be hosting live Social Emotional Activities at 9:00 AM for these days. The live activities will be 30 minutes and will have a different theme each day. We are holding these at 9:00 AM each morning in the hopes of starting to build the morning routine for families, since once the academic schedule begins our days will begin at 9:00 AM for all of our students with a similar whole class meeting.
     
    Outside of this 30 minute engagement opportunity with the teacher and students, our staff will be spending the remainder of each day during soft start planning, contacting/meeting with families, and participating in further professional development.
     
    PK/K teachers will be reaching out this week to schedule meetings with families and students so that they can better get to know our incoming students and begin creating classes and assigning teachers. Their soft start will begin next week.
     
    Material/Supply Pick-Up Day -
    We will hold a drive-thru material/supply pick-up for families this Thursday, September 3rd from 9:00-5:00. You are welcome to come out any time between those hours to get supplies for your student(s). There will be specific hours that grade level teams will be handing out and greeting families if you would like to aim for the time that your child's teachers may be staffing it.
     
    Kindergarten Teachers - 9:00-10:00
    1st Grade Teachers - 10:00-11:00
    2nd Grade Teachers - 11:00-12:00
    5th Grade Teachers - 12:00-1:00
    4th Grade Teachers - 1:00-2:00
    3rd Grade Teachers 2:00-3:00
    Admin/support 3:00-5:00
     
    Again, come by at whatever time works best for your family. We will be handing out backpacks with school supplies, information about our fall plans, grade level materials, etc. We will reach out to families that are not able to make it in order to arrange another pick-up/drop-off time if needed.
     
    Chromebook Update -
    If you do not have a working Chromebook, please call the school and schedule a time to pick-up/exchange your Chromebook before academic instruction begins on Monday, September 14th. If you have a K-2nd grader and do not have a touchscreen Chromebook you can also arrange to exchange for a touchscreen during this time.
     
    Meal Pick-ups -
    District meal distribution starts back up again this Wednesday, September 2nd from 3-5pm. It will continue every Monday and Wednesday (school days only) through the fall. They will distribute the number of meals for the number of school days between distribution days.
     
    YouTube Channel -
    We launched our YouTube Channel last spring when COVID first sent us all home. We will begin using it again this fall for weekly updates and information from Tina and I, as well as other BEH staff and community members. You can jump on now and see Todd's introduction as the new music teacher.
     
    Academic Plans-
    Our grade level teams are working on finalizing their academic schedules that will be starting on Monday, September 14th. I will include mroe detailed information on those in next week's message. What you can expect is that all BEH students will begin their day with a class meeting at 9:00 each morning and have activities to keep them engaged as well as breaks throughout the day until at least 3:00. This will be a mix of live instruction, recorded lessons, independent work, and break/meal times.
     
    I am looking forward to moving into another school year and finding creative ways to educate our students given the current realities we are facing.
     
    Please continue to reach out as questions or ideas come up for you.
     
    Take Care,

    Hello BEH Families,
     
    Teachers will officially be back (virtually) starting this Thursday. Our first day back together will be focused solely on catching up on training and information needed for the launch of our school year. Starting Friday, teachers will begin reaching out to families to connect and discuss the plans for the fall.
     
    Here are the updates around hiring and the start of school:
     
    Supply/Material Pick-Up:
    We will be coordinating a drive thru supply and material pick-up for all BEH students on September 3rd. We are still working out the logistics, but we will have specific times for grades to come and pick-up supplies that day, as well as open hours to pick-up supplies for any families. We will coordinate getting supplies to families that are unable to make this day work as well, but I wanted to make sure and get the date out there now. We plan to be out in the parking lot the majority of this day to handout materials to families for the Fall. Further details will be in next week's letter. 
     
    Back to School Night:
    We will have a virtual back to school night on Thursday, September 17th, from 5:30-7:00. This will consist of information being shared from the district level, school level, and grade levels. I will share the info and links for this meeting as we get into September.
     
    Schedule Updates:
    The daily virtual schedule for BEH this fall will be the same as our typical in person bell schedule. This means that all students will have a virtual school schedule that begins at 8:45 and ends at 3:00pm on every assigned school day, starting Monday, September 14th. The days will be a mix of live meeting times, recorded lessons from staff, and independent assignments that will be posted through SeeSaw and/or accessed in Lexia, Dreambox, etc.
     
    At BEH our focus will be to prioritize recording and posting any new learning so that families can access it both during their scheduled time, but also can revisit or access during times that are convenient to their schedules. Our live work will be focused on social emotional learning, small group activities, and reinforcing the lessons that are being taught in the recorded lessons. Our goal is to ensure that access to learning is available to students and families in a very flexible and responsive way.
     
    I will be working with staff this week to finalize the grade level schedules which will be shared out with everyone in more detail in the coming week.
     
    Hiring Updates:
    First Grade Teacher - I am excited to introduce Casey Rodhe as our third 1st grade teacher this year, she is coming to us from Chapman Elementary where she spent the past 10+ years teaching kindergarten and first grade. She emphasized her focus on being culturally responsive and building strong relationships with students and families. She participated on many committees and teams. I am excited to add her to our first grade team and know she will be an amazing addition not just to that team, but to our building staff.
     
    QMHP - I am excited for everyone to meet Troy Loker, he is coming to us from the DC school district most recently, but also has experience working in Honolulu school district and Hillsborough County schools in Tampa, Florida. I am excited to see how his experiences in these diverse schools and districts will help him to bring a new perspective to our practices and how we support our families at BEH. He will be supporting our work around school climate and our systems of support for families.
     
    Principal's Secretary - Our most recent official addition is Kristen Mawdsley. She too is coming to us from Chapman Elementary, where she served as the school secretary last year. Previous to that, she worked for over 20 years as a 911 dispatcher. Her personality and care for people came through strongly in our interview with her. April left some big shoes to fill, but I think we found the perfect person for the role in Kristen.
     
    I am always excited to start a new school year, meet all of our new families and catch-up with our returning families. This year the lack of in-person opportunities has hindered a bit of that excitement and  is not ideal for any of us, particularly our students. I am however continuing to work with our staff, district admin, and community partners around possible options for socially distant in-person engagement opportunities. As we make more progress or find out more I will share some of these ideas/opportunities out. If you have any thoughts or ideas, please don't hesitate to reach out.
     
    Take Care,
    Mr. Kaveh
