Several families and teachers from the statewide virtual public charter school brought items to benefit local food banks.  A day full of community service events across the state took place last Thursday as part of Oregon Connections Academy Cares Day.

The academy is the state’s leading tuition-free online public charter school serving students in grades K-12.

Virtual school students, parents and teachers gathered in eight locations across the state to volunteer in a variety of activities to support their local communities.

In Beaverton, about 50 students, teachers and parents headed to the Ceramicafé at 14600 S.W. Murray Scholls Drive to design their own ceramic tiles, mugs or plates with glazes.

They brought with them books and food donations that will be distributed to the Beaverton City Libaray and Oregon Food Bank.
