Summer Updates & Welcome New Families!

August Playground Playdates

playground_small.jpg

Mark your calendar!  Your Bonny Slope parent teacher organization, BSCO, will be holding three playground play dates during the first three Mondays in August.  Kindergarten and new-to-Bonny Slope families are encouraged to come meet and mingle, but all Bonny Slope Elementary families are welcome to join in on the fun.

  • Monday, August 6: 4:30-6:00pm

  • Monday, August 13: 4:30-6:00pm

  • Monday, August 20: 5:00-7:00pm (Pizza will be available for purchase on 8/20)

Play dates will be held on the Bonny Slope Elementary playground.  It's a great opportunity for kids and parents to get acquainted and get information from other parents before the school year begins.  We'll have chalk, bubbles and balls for the kids to play with and be on the lookout.....our mascot, Bobby the Bobcat might even make a guest appearance!  Feel free to spread out some blankets on the grass and bring a picnic dinner.  At the last play date on August 20th we'll even have pizza for purchase plus cookies and lemonade. Join us!

Stay Connected this Summer (and Beyond)

Don’t be a stranger this summer!  BSCO has several social media options available for those of you who would like to keep in touch.  

Facebook

  • Like our main public page “Bonny Slope Community Organization- BSCO” for any BSCO news or updates this summer.  Every article from our blog is automatically published to Facebook, so you are always in the know. (And don’t be shy about like a post-- that helps spread the word).

  • Join a grade level Facebook group.  Every grade has a Facebook group, which operate a bit more inclusively than our main page and allow for better conversations between parents.  These are a great avenue for announcements outside of general BSCO news that are relevant to your specific student and anyone within the group can add other Facebook friends.  Please let Josh contact@bonnyslopebsco.org  know if you are interested in joining one.

Instagram

  • Follow our “bsco_bonnyslope” account for some fun memes, photos and general news.

  • Bonny Slope’s PYP team is also on instagram at “bsepyp.”  Catch up on curriculum units through photos.

BSCO Website and Blog

  • Subscribe to our blog and receive the full text, straight to your inbox, on the day it is published.  All the day’s posts are put into one evening email, so your inbox stays clutter free.  Visit our new family page at http://www.bonnyslopebsco.org/about#new to sign up!

Cultural Enrichment Committee Introduces "Bobcat Explorers" Program

The Cultural Enrichment team needs your help. 

Screen Shot 2018-06-20 at 11.41.27 AM.png

After this summer vacation, Bonny Slope's Cultural Enrichment Committee would love to hear about your family's experiences with other cultures, lands or ethnicities. Whether you are near or far, away on vacation or at home on a staycation, please share your summer with us.

Information was sent home in your student's last Friday folder, including a Bobcat Explorer Logo card. Make sure you take the card with you on your trip or when you are out and about. We’d like you to include the Bobcat Explorer Logo card in a photograph you take this summer.

Think about the photo opportunity when visiting a monument or location, eating exotic food at a local food cart, or enjoying a folklore performance. You might be discovering something or somewhere new, or a place of great historical importance.

Think about a fun fact too, like how food is prepared or how people greet each other in a different manner. Of course, you can be in the photograph, but don’t have to be. 

Send your photographs to cultural@bonnyslopebsco.org. Add your name, the place where you took the photograph, together with your fun fact or what you have seen or learned. We will be collecting all the emails from our Bonny Slope Bobcat Explorers and sharing them on our Explorer Wall in school next year.

The project will run the full 18/19 school year! No worries if you can't make it this summer, but do have amazing plans for the holidays.

Let’s make it an exciting exploration!

BSCO Board Meeting Snapshot & Treasurer’s Report: June 11, 2018

BSCO-large.jpg

In an effort to boost transparency between the BSCO Board and the BSE community, a monthly snapshot will be published of the various topics discussed at the Board's monthly meetings.  These are not official minutes or a detailed description, but rather a window into the discussion and voting results of the Board

June Meeting-- 6/11/2018

The board met for the last time before summer to wrap up current business, share preliminary thoughts about next year, and celebrate accomplishments and transitioning board members.  All current and newly elected board members were present. Kindergarten teacher, Debra Henley, spared some of her evening time to join the meeting as well.

President, Ashish Gupta, reiterated the 3 dates/times for the August playdates, intended to welcome new families and ease transition before school starts.  The dates/times are Aug 6 (4:30-6), Aug 13 (4:30-6) and Aug 20 (5-7). Debra confirmed a representative from the kindergarten team will attend on at least 2 of the dates.  Ashish shared the gratitude received from various staff members for the recent teacher grants approved by the board. The board approved the outstanding requests for Hokki stools from the kindergarten team and remaining headphones for the 3rd grade team.  The BSCO budget will be combined with dollars already raised by teacher Donor's Choice pages to purchase 8 stools, leaving any remaining funds for additional headphones for 3rd grade.

The board shared thoughts about the Makers' Space idea and how it may or may not fit with the technology special.  Even a minimal amount out of the STEM in residence budget could kick start this hands-on creating/coding lab - a meaningful alternative/complement to computer games.  The board agreed with the desire to continue the coding in residence program which brought in great feedback from the BSE student body.

Ellen Rothery, VP of Fundraising, shared a near final draft of the the 2018-19 dates to remember.  Aside from the earlier start, the other dates are well aligned to last year's calendar. Ellen revisited the community outreach opportunity which was originally suggested by a parent at the last community meeting.  The board expressed support for using BSE's Boxtops program as a means to share funds with a neighboring school. Before moving forward, the idea will be presented to the new committee chair. While an auction lead is still unnamed, Ellen has led a lot of initial planning and brainstorming for next year's more simplified event.  The initial groundwork would allow a new lead to hit the ground running.

The final weeks of the school year are memorable ones due in part to the energies of a number of committees.  Holly VanderPloeg, Director of Committees, acknowledged the efforts of the carnival, 5th grade send-off activities, BTC and yearbook teams.  The 5th grade composite and their chosen quotation is a wonderful contribution to the walls of BSE. It's worth a look before you depart for the summer.  Holly shared more progress made with filling the committee lead list for the 2018-19 school year. One of the more time-critical positions, Monster Mash chair, has been filled.  A co-lead is still desirable for an event of this magnitude.

After being asked to consider supporting a neighbor school event, the BSE community responded in an impressive way.  Jenna Dornblaser, Director of Volunteers, recognized 30 BSE community volunteers who gave their time to help make the Barnes Elementary field day/JAT event a success.  All end of year class parties are scheduled. Volunteers are welcome and appreciated at these end of the year events.

The community is invited to view the current financials here.

Next Year's Auction Just Needs You!

The BSCO Board is excited to propose a new format for its Spring fundraiser, the Auction.  We are hoping to hold the Auction at Top Golf in Hillsboro for a more casual, fun, and active fundraising event.  The Auction will still involve your favorites, including raffles, adult/kid parties, student art, and the silent auction, but attendees will also get a chance to eat some tasty food, have a drink, and hit a few golf balls!  We're excited to try a new twist on one of the community's favorite traditions and an important annual fundraiser.

topgolf.jpg

Many of the logistics and details are already underway thanks to BSCO's VP of Fundraising Ellen Rothery.  But we won't be able to get this event off the ground until we identify 1 or 2 volunteers to lead the Auction Committee.

The Auction Lead(s) will work closely with the helpful event staff at Top Golf.  Fundraising targets for 2018-19 were cut in half to allow for a more casual event without a live auction.  Sponsors and donations shouldn't be hard to secure given a strong history of donations and very organized procurement records about who to contact.  And the past leads and committee chairs will continue their support and help the new leads transition into the role.  We just need a leader to say yes!!

If this new format sounds interesting to you, please contact Ellen Rothery.  The sooner we secure a lead volunteer(s), the sooner we can reserve the space and dates and get this fun project underway.

Thank you Committee Leads!

We appreciate every volunteer at Bonny Slope, but we’d like to give a special 'thank you' to the following parents for their committee leadership this year.  BSCO Committee Leads make such an impact on our community, your efforts have not gone unnoticed.  Bravo and thank you!

2018 Carnival Celebrates BSE's 10th Birthday

This year’s BSE Carnival’s birthday bash was another massive success last Friday, with over 1400 attendees enjoying a glorious spring evening on the Slope.

 1400 Attendees enjoyed an evening of fun and Games

To celebrate Bonny Slope’s birthday, the DJ kicked off the cupcake distribution to the school-wide tune of "Happy Birthday." Mrs. Maza and Mrs. Montelongo helped volunteers pass out 1,000 cupcakes, all of which were devoured.

The celebration included all the usual suspects– inflatables, food carts, games and prizes, a DJ, photo booth, and tattoo artist.  The lollipop tree was also hugely popular and the Snack Shack rocked its sales (as always), with otter pops coming in for the win as the most sold item. Sunset students were out in force to manage the games and prizes, allowing more parents to spend the evening with their children.

The annual 5th Grade Pie Eating Contest marked another milestone for our about-to-depart students.  Joe Santos expertly yielded the microphone as the event's Master of Ceremonies, keeping contestants and spectators informed of the rules (no hands!) and overall progress.   A solid set of semi-finalists and the ultimate champ, Sam G., took home DQ gift cards. Congrats to all the contestants and parent organizers!

Huge thanks Carnival chairs, Kirsten Forsberg and Reilley Keating for taking on this annual BSE tradition.  They are grateful to previous Carnival chairs, Debbie Heron and Elizabeth Bingold, for doing such an amazing job transitioning this committee.

Thanks is also due to so many parents who stepped up and filled the volunteer needs, from decor and signage, passing out the cupcakes, manning the inflatables, as well as set-up and clean-up in the gym, most especially Erik & Nadia Wald, Mike & Molly Lampros, Debbie Herron & Ryan Josephson, Ryan Johnson, and the BSCO Board.

The 2018 Carnival was free to the Bonny Slope community due to the incredible fundraising effort of the last several years.

Bonny Slope Excellence:  Ten Years in the Making

As we work toward building Bonny Slope Community Organization's future achievements, take a walk down memory lane to remember the last decade’s milestones that have shaped our school’s success today.

bonny.png

Bonny Slope was the 32nd elementary school built in the Beaverton School District.  Over 100 names were suggested through the public comment process included Tom Hartung School, Odus Bales Elementary, and McDaniel Elementary. Ultimately, the school board chose Bonny Slope based on its ties to the history and geographic region.  

firstyear.jpg

An Inaugural Year (2008)

BSE opened its doors in 2008 with 449 students and was available for open enrollment (the process in which limited schools are open to enrollment to students outside of their boundaries).  Kim Haskins was BSE’s first principal, moving from her principal position at McKinley Elementary.

Haskins, Bonny Slope staff, and the motivated parents of the Bonny Slope Community Organization (BSCO) quickly began laying the groundwork for many enduring BSE traditions that have lasted all ten years, including the Jog-a-thon (then held in May), Bobcat Trail Club, Geography Club (began as Passport Club), Artist in Residence, Monster Mash (previously called Harvest Fest) and Carnival.

Community Growth (2009-2011)

As Bonny Slope brushed off the dust from its inaugural year, the parent community rolled up its sleeve to continue expanding school programs.  Parents jumped in to build and organize BSE’s Community Garden, creating a mission statement and organizing logistics.

Additional events were added to the BSCO lineup, including Art Fair, Pancake Breakfast, Kids Care Club, the Earth Sustainability Team, and subsidizing Outdoor School.  BSCO also purchased $6000 worth of xylophones for Bonny Slope’s music program.

In 2010, Bonny Slope received IB authorization, at that time only one of three schools in Oregon with the Primary Years Programme and the only public school.  Since then, many more schools in Beaverton are now in some stage of IB authorization.

In the spring of 2012, BSCO organized its first silent auction, which was held during Carnival, and raised over $12,000 for new technology in the classroom.  That same spring, the Jog-a-thon team introduced an online donation platform-- doubling their previous totals.

New Responsibilities & New Faces (2012-2014)

The 2012-13 school year held deep and impactful budget cuts throughout Beaverton School District.  BSE lost several classroom teachers and its librarian as the district reshuffled hundreds of teachers.  BSCO began to do even more heavy lifting when it came to school support by increasing its fiscal contributions of teacher grants, PYP support and most significantly, technology, in order to fill in the gaps.

2013-14 also saw BSCO reinvent itself in several ways.  BSCO leadership rolled out a brand-new website and joined Facebook.  The Parent Education series began, originally with speakers presenting at BSCO’s monthly meetings.

The first off-site BSCO Soiree & Auction, “Kentucky Derby,” was held in May 2014, which included classroom art, sign-up parties, silent and live auctions.  That spring also saw the community vote to approve the installation of a new playground cover.

The following year, 2014-15, was again a time of change at Bonny Slope, as we welcomed our new principal, Janet Maza.  BSCO leadership switched from monthly meetings to our current three-a-year, and the BSCO Listening Sessions were introduced in April.

Bigger Dreams Become Reality (2015- 2017)

 Playground Cover

Playground Cover

In the summer of 2015, the playground cover was finally installed, nearly 16 months after its funding approval.  This school year had the largest student body at Bonny Slope– 660 students, allowing BSE to be granted its first vice principal. 2015-16 also marked the last year of open enrollment at Bonny Slope.  

Even with the loss of open enrollment, the construction boom within our boundaries has quickly filled in the outgoing, open-enrolled students and our enrollment numbers have steadied since– hovering right around 640 students in the last three years.  

BSCO continued to build upon and improve its infrastructure, moving all files and communications to Google Drive in order to create one centralized location for all historical information.  BSCO introduced a new logo to better brand their activities and the BSCO instagram was introduced.

Fall of 2015 introduced another major change to BSCO’s fundraising.  Jog-a-thon, historically held every May, moved to October, with huge success and record-breaking totals every year since.  In spring of 2016, the community approved another major project– the installation of a new gym projector.

In the fall of 2016, BSCO leadership announced its intention to rewrite both the Board Handbook and Bylaws.  After months of revisions and feedback, these new bylaws were approved at the community meeting in May 2017, along with a STEM in Residence program and the latest BSCO project– replacing all classroom projectors.

Celebrating Ourselves (2018)

With the success of 2018's "Cheers to 10 Years" Auction, BSCO looks forward to providing additional music support, replacing the music program’s aging instruments and equipment, as well as school-wide emergency supplies.  

As we look back on the many different programs and initiatives that have come and gone, one thing remains constant throughout the past ten years.  Everything BSCO has accomplished has been made possible through the enthusiasm, passion, and generosity of our parent and staff community. 

Thank you to every parent, volunteer, and community member that has contributed to our continued success.

New Board Members and Budget Approved at Spring Community Meeting

BSCO-large.jpg

On Tuesday, May 22nd, our community gathered for the last BSCO community meeting of the 2017-18 school year and voted on both the BSCO board and 2018-19 BSCO budget.  (Full Meeting Minutes Here)

Director of Committees, Holly VanderPloeg, and Director of Volunteers, Jenna Dornblaser are leaving the board, having completed the maximum of two years in their respective roles.  The community expressed gratitude to both of them for all of their valuable contributions and leadership.  

In their place will step Katie Kammer as Director of Committees and Michelle Mulholland and Stephanie Wilson as Directors of Volunteers.  

The proposed and voted-on 2018-19 budget highlights include a decrease in the Auction income in an attempt to simplify the fundraiser, increase to teacher fund to include allocation to the aides, new line items for Music to replace aging instruments and other performance lighting and audio improvements, for capital improvement and for emergency preparedness.

Other highlights from the meeting included grant updates, an update on an alternate Auction format, and updates on all the programs sponsored by or paid for by BSCO around the school.

The 2018-19 budget is coming into focus. The Auction netted over $55,000, exceeding expectations and without accounting for any matching dollars.  Expenses are slightly under forecast due partly to under-spending and partly to pending receipts for reimbursement.

2017-18 Geography Club Ends Another Trip Around the World

geoclub.jpg

We’ve been around the world once again in Geography Club!  The 2017-18 year was a success.  Students had the opportunity to learn up to 499 countries, capitals, states, monuments, land formations and waterways.  We even had 8 students learn them all!  The overall participation rate was 51% (up 9% from last year!), with 13% of the student body earning grade level achievement or higher.   The achievement levels are described below:

Grade Level Achievement: The student identified the countries up to the level that corresponds to their grade at each check day for the entire year.   (e.g. A first grader completed level 1, a third grader levels 1-3.)  

Level Five Achievement: The student identified countries and capitals in levels 1-5 regardless of their grade level at each check day for the entire year.

Challenge Level Achievement: The student completed one or more of the three challenge levels offered for the entire year.   (3rdGrade Challenge: Landmarks and Monuments, 4thGrade Challenge: States and Capitals, 5thGrade Challenge Land Formations and Water Ways.)

Congratulations and great work to the following students that earned grade level achievement or higher!!
