  • Dear Glencoe Families,

      It was so great to see so many of you at Back to School Night last week.  Thank you to each of you who made it to see you child’s classrooms and sign up for a Parent/Teacher Conference in November.  ! I know your teachers appreciated the opportunity to have you into their rooms, to see some of your child’s work and get a feel for how they spend their days with us. As a collective group students are earning tickets when they exhibit an action that aligns with our values: inclusive, cares, collaborates, and perseveres.  The tickets then go in our Glencoe Gull Gallery, a see through box in the main hall with lines marking off upcoming collective rewards.  We met our first goal line last week.  I am wondering how many of you heard that our students earned music at lunch last Friday?  Students seemed to really enjoy themselves and it even turned into a mini dance party.  They are working toward a lap-free recess next. 

    Coming up next week is the first evening PTA meeting of the year on Monday October 10th at 6:00 pm.  Typically PTA meetings are on the second Tuesday of the month.  This month, in honor of Yom Kippur we are holding our meeting on Monday.  I will briefly review our schoolwide data and goals for the year. Families will also have a chance to ask questions about school goals, curriculum and assessment, or anything else you’ve been wondering about. As a staff we are very appreciative of the contributions the PTA makes to our classrooms, to our students’ experiences and to so much more.  This month PTA will be hosting Glencoe’s Harvest Fest, a fun night activity for families who want to participate in games, face painting, fortune telling and more.  I hope to see you there! I want to thank the individuals who submitted their names for our Site Council Election.  We will be sending out a survey for all families this week. Please take your time to read each individuals information and cast your votes.  We have two open positions so everyone will be asked to vote for two individuals.

    As we head into October, some of you may be wondering about screening for Talented and Gifted education. For those of you who are curious about the program, the identification process or services, please join us on October 12th at 5:30pm in the library for Glencoe’s Annual TAG parent meeting.

    Finally, we have our first Spirit Day on Thursday, October 13th.  It is rainbow day.  Every grade level is assigned a color in the rainbow to wear for the day.  We take a whole school, very colorful picture out on the playground.  Last year’s rainbow picture can be seen on our website.   Sincerely,


    Lori Clark

    Glencoe Principal

  • Next Steps: Enrollment Balancing

    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:

  • Indoor rowing education comes to Portland Public Schools

     Recent Erg Ed event in Seattle WA.
    PPS has been awarded the 2016-2017 Erg Ed Grant. This grant provides erg equipment, access to the Erg Ed Curriculum, and comprehensive teacher training throughout the year.
  • PPS employee recognized as a hero
