The BSCO organizes many optional programs to supplement the child's education outside of school hours.
Bonny Slope offers a balanced mix of programs and clubs to kids before and after school. Class offerings include art and drawing classes, Lego building classes, exercise classes, science classes and many more. BSCO's After School Liaison works with BSE administration to bring quality programming to BSE.
Bobcat Trail Club
The Bobcat Trail Club is a running/walking program designed to encourage fitness in a fun way! Kids run or walk laps on the school track and record the laps completed. Rewards are given after designated milestones are reached. BSCO volunteers run this program and help the kids keep track of completed laps.
This annual fun-filled event has been a consistent success through the years at Bonny Slope. Volunteers promote, set-up and staff the week-long fair, often helping students find particular books and organizing the shelves. A teacher wish list board is also created to better support BSE classrooms. The week also includes a Family Night, with extended evening hours and light refreshments.
The purpose of Community Outreach at Bonny Slope is to excite, encourage and equip young people to give back to the community – both locally and globally. We help kids discover their power in making a difference!
Since Bonny Slope Elementary is an International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) school, our Community Outreach committee seeks opportunities that align with the IB’s mission statement: To develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help create a better and more peaceful world through intercultural understanding and respect.
Over the years, Bonny Slope has participated in the Sparrow Club (providing financial and emotional support for critically ill children and their families), the Beaverton Clothes Closet (providing free clothing for students in grades K-12 from families with limited income), Kids Care Club (a free after-school program where a charitable organization educates our kids on their charity, and then the kids complete a project to support that organization), Hearts for Haiti (collected money through different individual + group activities to support Haiti after their earthquake) and Project Warm-Up (an annual clothing drive to support Beaverton families in need).
Each fall we participate in International Walk to School Day. This event promotes awareness of our funky walking routes, increases physical activity, and reduces traffic congestion and pollution. BSCO coordinates walking routes and times for this great event. For details please see the Walk to School page.
The Bonny Slope Yearbook is published each June and is available for purchase. The yearbook committee leads design, photograph, layout class pictures and edit the pages of the yearbook. There is also a volunteer per each classroom that proofs their classroom page and helps forward any special photos of their classroom kids during the year to the yearbook committee.
