Come Help Us Plan Our Year!
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.

Dear Portland Public Schools Community,
I accepted the role of Interim Superintendent of Portland Public Schools (PPS) at a challenging moment in time. During my first month on the job, I initiated an assessment of the programmatic and system priorities identified by the Board of Education for the 2016-17 school year. After these priorities were established, a number of additional priorities emerged that also require attention:
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM Creston Family Movie Night
6:00 PM - 7:30 PM Creston Parent TAG Night
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM Veterans Day (No School)
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM Thanksgiving Day (No School)
