Hello Beverly Cleary families,

This week we are celebrating Neurodiversity and All-Abilities week.  There are several opportunities for students and families to learn more and connect, such as a resource table in the library, classroom discussions, Buddy activities and our first annual Family Night.  The goal of this week is to bring more awareness and acceptance of learning, behavioral and physical differences many of us experience to our community.

All are welcome to join us for Family Night this Thursday, March 16th from 7-8 PM in the cafeteria in conjunction with FACT Oregon.  Please go here if you would like to volunteer during this week.
