Go Warriors! Opportunity Fund

Go Warriors! Aloha High School Opportunity Fund​

We invite you to join us (class of ’70 and ’71), in networking with other alumni to build the Go Warriors! Aloha High School Opportunity Fund! The original alumni classes have now been joined by more than twelve classes and the community.

To celebrate our 45th and 44th reunion, we established the Go Warriors! Aloha High School Opportunity Fund! It awards grants through the Beaverton Education Foundation to small non athletic student groups (8 or more) with seed money and fund optional class activities in a wide range of areas. The fund pools the resources of all alumni classes and the Aloha community to encourage initiative, planning, budgeting, problem solving, project execution and delivery. It it used to stimulate student interest in exploring career and personal development.

Why build an endowment fund?

Traditionally endowment funds established by alumni were in the domain of private high schools. Recent news has focused on family income demographics of current students and educational funding cutbacks. Our effort will help change the current perception with a permanent resource and is a great way to let current and future students know that we care and consider them to be our most valuable asset as it was in the past!

The goal is to reach $50,000 to become a permanent endowment fund which grows and awards funds year after year. For more information contact AHS7071@gmail.com

Now the BEF Beaverton's Choice Project link https://www.beavertonedfoundation.org/beavertons-choice/ will immediately update the fund total and send a receipt reflecting your gift. 

We also have an AHS 50th Anniversary Celebration video posted on Youtube - - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AUkGEWOr2Rs with event pictures/videos. The event was well received and had over 300 alumni, staff, and community members attend.

Project Awards for 2020-2021

  • I could have used a little more tuba.  – Band request award - $750
    • Description: Since 2017, our program has doubled from 45 students to a projected 100 in 2021 which means our instrument inventory has been stretched to its limit. This year, we have the wonderful problem of four tuba players, but only three tubas! During a normal year, students would share the large instruments while having their own mouthpieces.
    • While we are in distance learning, and even during hybrid, we will not be able to do this, nor is it ideal going forward.  This fundraiser would help our low brass students all have an instrument of their own.
    • See Band members “Thank you” video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wLz3YwKRPqw
  • Books, books & more good books. – Award $500 (2019-2020) + $300(2020-2021) – Project request funded with BEF/Go Warriors match.
    • Description: "The sophomore class of Aloha High School is looking to update their book club options this year and provide titles that are more accessible, especially for struggling readers and English Language Learners.”
       
  • Enhance PE Hybrid Learning in the Gym – request purchased standup desks and two speakers in support of hybrid learning. Partnering with BEF, the board awarded $750 with BEF completing the $1023.87 request.
