YOUR MONEY AT WORK–– PTC Funds New Library Furniture


At March’s PTC Community Meeting, community members approved $6253 of PTC funds to go towards the updating of new furniture in the CPMS Media Center (library).

Less than two months later, that furniture is now at the school and is being used daily by our Cedar Park student body.

Items purchased include:

  • Two new modular couches, plus one more traditional sofa

  • Two high tables and eight stools

  • A spring-loaded book return bin

Thank you to all our 5K donors who made this possible, as well as Debbie Hernandez in the CPMS library. The PTC hopes this can be the first of many phases of library improvement in the coming years.


YOUR MONEY AT WORK-- Art Literacy Brings Art Deco to CPMS


PTC time, money and volunteers went into making April’s Art Literacy lesson a huge success. The world of Art Deco inspired our 1000+ students to create beautiful & unique pieces.

Shout out to our incredible Art Lit leadership team– Jana Drotzmann, Maureen Louie, Melissa Manos, Melanie Odom, & Sally Sonek. Another thank you is due to the many volunteers who came in to help pull off this massive endeavor. Finally, a round of applause to all of our 5K donors who make these hands-on Art Lit projects possible.

Budget Meeting Rescheduled

Please also consider attending the next BSD Budget meeting in support of MYP (see info below).

The next Beaverton School District Budget Committee Meeting has been rescheduled to Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at 6:30 p.m. at Southridge High School, 9625 SW 125th Avenue, Beaverton, 97008.  

NOTE: The May 13, 2019 Budget Committee Meeting is cancelled. 

Budget Committee Chair Denise Petterborg and Vice Chair Heidi Edwards recommended staff review and revise the budget proposal stating there are enough variables, assumptions and input to reconsider. “Given the volume of public input received at the first Budget Committee and online, we felt it was important for staff to sharpen their pencils and possibly revise the proposed budget,” said Denise Petterborg. “This will also give the District time to plan for HB 3427 funding, the Student Success Act, which would be available in 2020-2021,” said Becky Tymchuk, Beaverton School Board Chair.  

The purpose of this meeting is for the Budget Committee to take comment from the public on the budget, pose questions to staff and discuss the revised budget proposal.
