Located on Beaverton-Hillsdale Highway, Qdoba is a walk-in (STUDENT FAVORITE!) “Mexican eats” restaurant that began in 1995 in Denver, Colorado. Since then, Qdoba has expanded to many locations, Beaverton being one of them as just a short distance from BHS. At Qdoba, you will see many students and alumni from Beaverton who both work and eat there regularly. Qdoba is also involved in our community. Last year, Qdoba sponsored Jam the Dam, provided food for school functions, and donated meals to BHS students and families. Let’s show Qdoba even more support, and check it out soon!

Sarvin Sobhani is a graduate from the Class of 2018, and what she loved most about high school was that she could always be a space with her best friends. She also really appreciated how welcoming the BHS community was and is to new students and came up with many different ways to get them involved. Sarvin was a part of the Marketing Pathway as well as the Welcoming Committee, and her most memorable moment at BHS was being kidnapped for Prom Court! Some advice that she can offer to high school students is to get to know as many people as you can and try to step out of your comfort zone. Good luck to you, Sarvin! BHS knows you will do great things.

A Boba-licious Start to the School Year

Via Beaverton Hummer online: https://beavertonhummer.wordpress.com.

Beaverton Hummer

by Cooper Graham

While many high schoolers may not be avid tea drinkers, very few can pass up a certain Taiwanese-tea based beverage; bubble, or boba, tea. Typically using either black, green or oolong tea, it is mixed with a milk/creamer and some sort of sweetener, then boba, (tapioca pearls) are added.

It has recently become very popular in the US, with a wide variety of flavor options available. Around Beaverton and the Metro area, there are quite a few places to score some boba tea, like Bubble N Tea, Bubble Bubble Tea, and Mo Cha Teahouse. But there’s a new shop in town: Milk + T.

Milk + T, located at 4545 SW Angel Ave #160, is just a few minutes from our very own Beaverton High School, and it is pretty awesome. Walk in and it’s instant amazement at the sight of the décor and layout, the sound…

Senior Payton Major is your ASB President!

IMG_1675

Get to know her better through a small piece she wrote about herself: “I’m so excited to see what we can accomplish this semester because we truly have the greatest leadership group ever!! My favorite school activity is writing, but I run cross country every Fall. Leadership is my favorite class:) After high school, I want to attend the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism & Mass Communication at Arizona State University to double major in Broadcasting and Meteorology. Then, hopefully become a News Anchor and/or Meteorologist! Outside of school, I’m a supervisor at Jamba Juice, I love to sing, and hang out with my friends, family and dogs. I also love going to rodeos and country music concerts during the summer! My advice to underclassmen is to make your own path! If BHS doesn’t offer what you want to pursue after high school, make an independent study! I’m currently in my own “broadcasting” class, and I made my own pathway! You’re in charge of your future, so do what’s best for YOU!”
