  • Welcome!

    I am excited to welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year. Creston continues to grow and is ready to embrace the new opportunities this year will bring. We are looking forward to the students arriving.

    In the spring of 2016, we mailed a suggested supply list home to families for the upcoming school year. Creston is very thankful to its long-time partners Vernier Software and School House Supplies for the Tools for Schools Program through which each student will receive important learning tools to promote learning.

    As a reminder, PPS is contracting for water delivery for the 2016-17 school year to ensure that there will be safe drinking water available for all students and staff in the fall. Water will be supplied through water dispensers to eliminate waste. Portland Public Schools will continue to provide parents with safety updates.

    We look forward to seeing you all at our Back to School Night.

    Thursday, September 15
    from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

     

    Keep Smiling,

    Conrad Hurdle, Principal

  • 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.

  • 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.
