  • Principal's Message

    It's been refreshing to have a couple of relatively normal and predictable weeks of weather (rain, rain, and more rain); it certainly helps us to feel like we can rely on our routines and focus on growing and learning together. February and the beginning of March might seem like a bit of a lull, but there is so much exciting learning happening and preparations for the spring.

    Connect To Kindergarten

    Please join us for Connect to Kindergarten at Chapman @the Ramona next week on February 14th at 9:00 a.m. If you have a child starting kindergarten in the fall of 2017, come to our Connect to Kindergarten event to learn about our program. Please pass this information along to any of your friends and neighbors living in the Chapman attendance area.

    Bond Information & Survey

    PPS Staff are currently assessing our schools’ health and safety needs to inform a draft 2017 bond package that will include critical health and safety improvements and plans for additional modernized high schools. This upcoming bond is part of a long-range plan to modernize and improve all of our schools over the next 20 years, and will address issues like seismic safety and water quality. Our facilities’ needs are extensive and community feedback on this bond package will shape the priorities of the next round of investments. The 2017 bond will require us to unite and invest in the schools our students and community deserve. Help us keep building our future together. Please take our Bond Survey here:

  • 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.

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,
