    Chávez Families,

    Welcome back to school!  We are excited for another great school year.  We have added some new staff to our school and made great plans for this upcoming year.  Some big changes to remind families of some of our big changes-

    1. Middle School stays in class until 2:30.  K-5 students will still be dismissed at 2:15.  Students who walk with middle school siblings and bus riders will wait in homework club in the library.
    2. Chavez Homework folder.  All students will have homework four days a week, including 20 minutes of reading every night.  Students will have a bright red folder for homework and school-home communication.
    3. Water.  We have large water dispensars at every fountain for students to use.  We are encouraging all students to bring a reusable water bottle to refill every day.
    4. Morning Dropoff- Morning dropoff for 1st-5th graders will occur in the cafeteria.  Parents who wish to enter and wait with their studnets will need to sign in. 

    Here is to a great first day and year.  We are On Time, On Task and On a Mission.  We are Chavez.  Somos Chavez.

  • Nine of our schools earn EPA’s ENERGY STAR rating

    At a ceremony on February 10 at Wilson High School in SW Portland, nine PPS schools were recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for achieving ENERGY STAR certification. To receive this certification, a building must perform in the top 25% of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency, and meet strict energy efficiency performance levels set by the EPA. ENERGY STAR schools use an average of 35% less energy, and also release 35% less carbon dioxide.

  • Enrollment balancing for Peninsula, Chief Joseph and Ockley Green

    Soomaaliga Español Tiếng Việt
    The District-wide Boundary Review Advisory Committee (DBRAC) was formed in 2014 to help with enrollment balancing across Portland Public Schools. The committee’s most recent work led them to propose two options to help relieve crowding at Chief Joseph and to create more robust enrollment at Peninsula starting in the 2017-18 school year. On January 30, 2017, Interim Superintendent Bob McKean endorsed one of two DBRAC proposals.

    The proposal, which still requires the approval of the Board of Education, may be reviewed at, www.pps.net/dbrac.
