Christmas Boxes Update: You're Needed!

It's been a good, busy week at Cedar Hills.  On Wednesday we picked up thousands of pounds of food from Barnes Elementary, where children and staff donated their resources and then their time to help us load and transport the food to Cedar Hills Baptist. Next, the food was sorted by a pack of eager, energetic girl scouts and CHBC volunteers on Wednesday evening.  An inventory of the food revealed needs we still have - see the bottom chart.  Your help providing these items would be invaluable!  Items highlighted in Yellow are still needed.   Contact the Supreme CBL Commander, Bev Wright if you can help with these needs. We often need to shop for items, so financial gifts are appreciated as well. 
Today (Friday) we're picking up our toys from KGW's toy drive and sorting them for the "toy store" that will be open, by reservation only, from 4:30-6 PM tonight.

Needs and Opportunities at Barnes Elementary School

October 2015

Please contact Pastor Curtis at Cedar Hills Baptist if you can help with any of the important needs listed below.
  • Right now there is a great need for volunteers to read with students. There is a specific need in the kindergarten classrooms in the afternoons (12:30-1:30 and1:00-1:30 with a couple different teachers)
  • Library help: we have an awesome new librarian and she could use some help organizing the library and re-shelving the books when they are returned by the students
  • Oregon Battle of the Books (OBOB): This s a fun event where volunteers get to test book knowledge of groups of 3rd, 4th and 5th graders. This is during each classroom's library time so connects really well to helping out at the library! I have attached the OBOB schedule so you have a feel for what it looks like
  • Staff Appreciation Dinners: We want to provide meals to our hard working teachers during teacher parent conferences. This term we are hoping to provide them meals on October 21st and 22nd
Just a reminder, any new volunteers will first need to submit a background check (this is good for two years). It can easily be done online atwww.beaverton.k12.or.us/volunteer
