4-H in Washington County

4-H robotics

The four H’s stand for Head, Heart, Hands and Health. Throughout the 100+ years of 4-H, Oregon State University Extension professionals and devoted adult volunteers have been on the cutting edge of education with experiential learning—”learn by doing.” During the 1918-19 school year, Oregon became the first state to offer 4-H in a metropolitan area. Portland-area school grounds were used for the first victory gardens in World War I with help from 4-H.

Before-and-after-school care for kids at the Student Stops

student stop managers

The Student Stop (TSS) was the brainchild of a mom with several children at Cedar Mill Elementary in 1992, according to their Executive Director Christina Bennett and Assistant Director Marjorie Thompson. That need for quality before and after school care became a non-profit with a seven-member Board of Directors serving Cedar Mill Elementary and Bonny Slope Elementary students to this day.
