Leadership Updates for October – December

Juniper Lanford
Leadership has set up anonymous student voice boxes around the school.

Pink Week

Metro League Pink Week is next week, Oct. 16 – 20. T-shirts and Sweatshirts that were ordered were delivered on Oct. 12. The goal of Pink Week is to raise awareness for stage 4 metastatic breast cancer and to raise money for Metavivor. Leadership students will be carrying around pink jars all week to collect donations and you can also donate online.

There is also a spirit week for Pink Week. Monday is “Sock it to Cancer” (pink socks), Tuesday is “Throwback Tuesday” (old pink gear), Wednesday is Barbie Day, Thursday is “Pink Out”, and Friday is pink accessories.


Anonymous Student Voice Boxes 

Beaverton High School Leadership’s Student Voice Committee has recently distributed anonymous student voice boxes throughout the school. The purpose of these boxes is to give students an easy way to share their concerns with the BHS administration. Monthly, the Student Voice Committee will empty the boxes and meet with Principal Kearl to discuss students’ concerns and how to address them. There are currently three boxes: one in the Student Center near the vending machines, one in the Wellness Center, and one in the Lower Cafeteria. 

Please use these boxes responsibly and only submit real concerns or realistic suggestions. 


Post-Covid Homecoming Record

Two weeks ago, on Sept. 30, about 850 people gathered in the BHS cafeteria for Homecoming. The energy was magical, fitting the fairytale theme. This year marked the highest Homecoming attendance post-COVID lockdown! Last year, only about 700 people went to Homecoming, and this many people have not attended since 2019, when around 900 people attended.



Shadows will start in mid-November. This is a great opportunity for future BHS students to get to know the school. If you are a high school student who would like to show middle school students around the school, you can use this link to sign up, sign ups are due Nov. 1. Middle school students can sign up to shadow a BHS student using this link.


November and December

Adopt-a-Family is coming up. It will take place right after Thanksgiving Break, starting the week of Nov. 27 and ending right before Winter Break on Dec. 16. This event involves collecting items to give to families who cannot afford them. Make sure this is on your radar, it is an amazing way to give back to the community!

Mark your calendars: the Sock Toss is happening on Dec. 14, during a Beaverton basketball game. Colorful, fun children’s socks will be collected and donated to children’s hospitals.

Elections for second semester ASB positions will be held in early December. These are an opportunity for your voice to be heard, so please remember to vote.
