Winterhaven Clothing Drive - Friday April 7-Friday April 21 - Winterhaven is currently running a Clothing Drive to provide clothes to the Portland Council PTA Clothing Center prior to our volunteer date now through April 21.Have you seen the plastic bins located in the front foyer? All of those clothes will be donated to the PTA Clothing Center to serve school-age children and their families in our greater community. Per the Clothing Closet website, please try to provide clean, gently-worn clothes that are appropriate for school attendance.


PTA Clothing ClosetMonday, April 24 (9:30-1pm) we need SIX volunteers for Winterhaven's assigned date at the Portland Council PTA Clothing Center at Marshall High School: 3905 SE 91st Ave, Portland, OR 97266. For many PPS students, this is their only chance to get new clothes for the season, and it's always a rewarding experience for volunteers. Choose to help families "shop" for clothes or sort incoming donations - if you have the flexibility in your schedule, please consider joining us. Also, if you cannot commit to the full! Email Rebekah Folsom 3.5 hours, think about splitting a 1.75 hour slot with a friend ( to sign up for a slot or half-slot (9:30-1p9:30-11:15, or 11:15-1p)


Middle School Electives - Fridays April 28-May 19, 8:30-10:10 AM -The final Middle School Elective session of the year is rapidly approaching. We currently have several great class offerings, thanks to all of you many parents and community members giving our students your time and talents. However, we're putting out a specific ask for someone willing to teach an outdoor elective. Whittling? Kite Making? Rock Climbing? Outdoor Yoga? We'd love to bring in some new classes! There are also a few ready-made ideas (for example, we're still looking for an engineer to build Ms. Dixon a misting-spray tube assembly to cool off runners for next years' MAC Attack) and we have a ready-to-go curriculum for Hunger Games (capture the flag). Please email Barb Fisher ( or Rebekah Folsom ( - the kids would be SO grateful to have you.
