We invite prospective Kindergarten families to join us for our final KinderConnect event of the season! See date/time below. These events provide an opportunity to meet the talented teachers on Creston’s Kindergarten team, learn about Creston’s academic program and extended day activities, and hear from our dedicated PTA members about opportunities to support our school.
Final KinderConnect Event at Creston
Thursday, June 1st, 6:00pm
Creston School, along with our PTA's Traffic and Student Safety Committee, PPS Transportation Services, and the Portland Department of Transportation, designed and implemented a new traffic plan this school year to improve student safety. Please take a moment to review the new Creston School traffic plan below. Please be aware of parking limits and no parking zones around the school, Please be considerate of all pedestrians and other drivers as you move around the school. Thank you for your cooperation to keep our kids and families safe.
The Comprehensive Achievement Plan (CAP) highlights our program’s focus for the 2016-2017 school year.
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

Please congratulate all who participated. They all were fantastic and made Benson Tech proud!
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.
CORRECTION: 2nd budget listening session is Tuesday, April 25
We want to hear from you about the 2017-18 budget for PPS! The Portland School Board has scheduled three listening sessions to take your comments on how we should allocate our dollars in the coming year.
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.
