Special education teacher Shannon Cooper volunteers at the New Seasons Barbecue
Back to School
We kicked off the new school year with our annual Teacher Orientation, a time for special education teachers to share their powerful strategies for using The Shadow Project to engage struggling students. Teachers also “shopped” at our warehouse for books, school supplies and other educational incentives to help their students achieve goals. This year, The Shadow Project will serve more than 1,200 students in 29 schools.

New Seasons Barbecue & School Supply Drives Support our Kids
The Raleigh Hills New Seasons held a Benefit Barbecue for The Shadow Project last month, raising $1,013 to help students with special needs succeed in school.
For the second year in a row, The Oregon Public Health Employees chose The Shadow Project as the beneficiary of its annual school supply drive. “These are hard times, but our people really want to support this program,” said coordinator Tamara Burkovskaia.
And our old friend, the Newcomers Club of Lake Oswego and West Linn was back with another school supply drive on our behalf.
Don’t forget…when you become a Friend of Shadow, your donation doubles.

I am proud of myself because I'm doing better in class and staying focused. I used to have a hard time with my attitude but I'm doing better now. I'm 13 and I have done the Shadow Project since I was six. The Shadow Project is wonderful. I hope to be like you guys and help kids out someday. Sincerely, Fredy
