Principal's
Message

  • From Principal Matt Goldstein

    May 5th, 2017

     

    Dear Families,

    Happy May! I am happy to report that the Fund Run was a great success. After an early downpour and a shift of 3rd grade to the afternoon, everything went off according to plan. It was wonderful to see many of you out there, cheering and encouraging. I saw lots of encouraging, caring, and positive behavior while running and walking. A big thank you to Sara McMahon, Christina Waldron, and Lindsay Wyant for their leadership and thanks to President Meeka Kullberg and the entire PTA Board for a great day.

    As some of you may have heard, 3rd grade teacher Joanne Chow will be retiring at the end of this school year. Joanne has had an incredible career at Duniway, spanning more than three decades. Joanne tells me she is excited to enjoy the freedom of being retired and already has a road trip planned to Yosemite in, you guessed it, September! Joanne will be greatly missed and we wish her only the best.

    If you have not completed a classroom placement form for next year, please take a few minutes to do so. All forms must be turned into the office by May 11th. Forms can be sent into the office, given to your child’s teacher, or feel free to email the forms to Lynn or me. Thank you for taking the time to complete this form – we will do our best to use your insights to help better inform our process.

    I hope you all have a great weekend!

    Regards,

    Matt

  • 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.
