For those who missed this week’s PTA Meeting, the Portland Eco-School Network is hosting a series of “dessert meet-ups” for parents interested in introducing sustainable practices and raising eco-awareness at school.
All are welcome at that year's first BCS PTA General Membership meeting on Tuesday, September 13th at 7:30pm in the Fernwood Campus Cafetorium.
Joining the PTA is the easiest way to become involved, and isn’t just limited to parents and teachers -- friends, grandparents, and other interested parties are all invited to join!
You are cordially invited to the Beverly Cleary School PTA Ice Cream Social to be held on the Fernwood campus playground, Tuesday, September 13 from 6:30 – 7:30 PM.
You can order magazine subscriptions and other items anytime online and the BCS PTA will get 40% of the proceeds.

Take your bottles and cans to QFC (
What do you do? Bag your recycling, hand it to one of the courtesy clerks at QFC between 4:00 and 8:00pm on Saturday -- and let them know the refund money is for Beverly Cleary School. They count the bottles and cans for you and give BCS cash money. It's that easy.

To give our school a kick-back at no cost to you while shopping on Amazon you need to:
1) go to smile.amazon.com and login to your regular Amazon account (or create one if you don’t have an account),
2) choose the Beverly Cleary School PTA as your recipient charity, and
3) remember to go to the smile.amazon webpage to order off Amazon (it doesn’t help our school if you go to the regular Amazon page even by linking from our webpage).
It can be hard to remember to go to the smile.amazon webpage to order off Amazon. If you bookmark smile.amazon it will help you remember. People who use the Chrome browser can install a plugin that will automatically redirect all amazon.com pages to smile.amazon.com. Every time you purchase something off Amazon using the “smile” page, BCS PTA gets a 0.5% contribution, a cost to Amazon merchants, not you.
