The Service Corps book drive for Bienestar was a great success. Executive director Karen Shawcross writes, "Thank you for the awesome donation of 50 boxes of books to the children of Bienestar! These are going to our community rooms where children of farmworkers and working poor families will enjoy them in four homework clubs and our Summer Reading Safari and Born to Learn programs. We are touched by this generous outpouring of gifts from Catlin Gabel families, and want you to know how much they will be enjoyed by children who have no books at home!"
Thank you to everyone who has participated in the 2010-11 Annual Fund so far this year. To date, we have raised 72% of our $935,000 goal.
We are grateful to community members for their committed support and invaluable investment. One-hundred percent of the Alumni Board has participated in the Annual Fund as well as 72% of faculty-staff and 48% of parents.
Early gifts to the Annual Fund are important for planning purposes. However, it is not too late for you to give or pledge to the 2010-11 Annual Fund. We have a ways to go to reach our goal! Make your gift online, by telephone – 503-297-1894 ext 310, or by mail – 8825 SW Barnes Rd, Portland, OR 97225.
Many thanks for your support!
Great schools don’t just happen. We make them so.
Fourteen students and two teachers from the Gifu Kita School visit Catlin Gabel and stay with school families from January 3 through 10. This is the 20th anniversary year of our exchange program with our sister school in Japan. Be sure to say hello, or, rather, konichiwa!

Please collect children's and youth books to contribute
We are excited to announce the next CG Service Corps activity: a book drive benefiting Bienestar, a nonprofit housing and service organization serving Washington County’s Hispanic community.
Upper School students have been volunteering at the Bienestar homework club for three years. Our book drive will further cement a wonderful partnership and boost Bienestar’s mission to educate the migrant labor population they serve.
Cross-divisional teams of Catlin Gabel students and faculty-staff will collect and presort donated books between January 10 and 21.
Parents, students, faculty-staff, and alumni are invited to two sorting parties in the barn on Saturday, January 22.
We will load books onto the retired Rummage truck for delivery to Bienestar.
Details about book drop locations to follow.
“If there’s one thing Catlin Gabel families have in abundance, it’s books!”

A hero, a dragon, girls acting dippy, and boys in tutus. This decidedly 8th grade show is a perennial favorite that has been performed to the delight (and horror) of Catlin Gabel audiences since the 1940s. Borrowing from the same basic plot (we use the term loosely), each class reflects its own personality in St. George and the Dragon.

Both the boys and girls soccer teams play in the state finals on Saturday at Liberty High School! The occasion is made even more momentous because it marks Mike Davis’s final game as boys head coach. He retires in June after 23 years at Catlin Gabel.
A strong showing of Catlin Gabel fans at the championship games would be awesome.
Come cheer on the mighty Eagles as they play back-to-back games for the state championships.
