    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.

  • 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.

  • From Tom Koehler, Chair of the Board of Education: Budget and Bond

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    Dear PPS Families and Staff:

    Spring is approaching and it’s that time of year when we begin building budgets and plans for the next school year.

    I spent Monday in Salem with a fellow board member, PPS principals and educators and school districts from across Oregon to advocate for additional resources to support K-12 education and our local schools. The state is facing a shortfall of approximately $1.7 billion and the budgets proposed for K-12 from the Governor and Legislature are not adequate to maintain current levels of services.
