Principal's
Message

  • Kevin Bacon, Principal

    Welcome to our school.  

    As you get to know more about us, you'll find that Boise-Eliot/Humboldt is made great by staff, teachers, families, and volunteers working together to support our students. Our students bring leadership and rich background knowledge about the things that interest them and help them learn, and help us grow as educators in turn.

    As in many PPS buildings, we are facing equity challenges head-on, and have a number of systems in place to ensure that we're all working together to provide the best learning environment possible. It is not only an ongoing conversation, but something we bring to everyday practice. We have a dynamic STEAM curriculum for all K-8 learners, a Restorative Justice practice that positively acknowledges the complex lives of all young people, and are using MindUp to give K-2 students tools for dealing with the conflicts and emotions all young people face as they become young adults.

    If you are a BEH family, please consider how you can invest in whatever way is possible for you, from small donations like a ream of printer paper, or attending a PTA event, to joining PTA or volunteering in your child's classroom.  I do believe that every person has something unique to contribute, and that each person who enters our school can impact it for the better.

    You can always sign up for our email newsletters, track us on facebook, or follow my Twitter account.

    Kevin Bacon, Principal

These award ceremonies are essential to honor and reward students whose achievements represent the best of PPS, and to inspire their fellow students in the coming school year. We’re excited to celebrate these students and are looking forward to sharing their stories with you.

  • Important budget message from the Superintendent

    Español | Tiếng Việt | 中文 | Русский | Soomaali

    Hello PPS families and staff,

    On April 4 I presented my proposed budget for the 2017-18 school year to our School Board. I want to make sure you know what our spending priorities are, and what they will mean for you and your PPS student or students.

    This is a budget of difficult choices. We made extra cuts to central administration to prioritize direct services for students, but we still must make some painful cuts to our schools. Although the cuts will affect each school differently, they will be noticeable. This proposed budget is the first step in a long process, and we will be seeking your input and engagement as we manage this difficult fiscal climate.
