    Summer Reading Starts June 16!

    Join over 100,000 area youth to play the Summer Reading game at Multnomah County Library. Players read, listen to audiobooks, or complete gameboard activities, then mark off those days on a gameboard. Students earn t-shirts and other prizes for making a habit of reading! Summer Reading is free, and kids who finish the game will be entered into a Grand Prize drawing for a trip for four to Great Wolf Lodge waterpark!

    Besides supporting reading, the Summer Reading program includes a wide array of fun, free events for children, teens and families. Neighborhood libraries will offer free music, puppet shows, crafts, maker sessions and many other activities all summer long. Reading through the summer helps youth maintain or improve their skills so they can start school in the fall ready to learn. Summer Reading runs June 16-August 31, and you’re invited!

    Find out about library events at https://multcolib.org/events Summer Reading is made possible by The Library Foundation.

    Dear Hayhurst Community,

    I just wanted to personally say a “THANK YOU!” to all our wonderful volunteers. With all of your time, support, energy, and hands on with students we truly have built a fabulous school community. Hayhurst School is at the heart of our neighborhood thanks to all of your support!

    Unfortunately, I missed the volunteer celebration this morning as the flu germs finally caught up with me, and have kept me at home under the covers. A big thank you goes to the team effort of the staff and students for putting on our thank you program. A super BIG thank you to Tricia Dowling our librarian for spear heading the event with all of her creative ideas.

    Thank you again, to all of our fabulous volunteers for everything you do for our school!!

    Cheers to each of you!!!

We have room for 50 swimmers in the pool. Each spot is only $10. If you just want to hang out on the deck, come on by. There is no charge for that. Please remember though, all Portland Parks and Rec rules apply.

    Children that are non-swimmers and/or under 48” must not be left unattended on the pool deck, and must be accompanied by an adult at all times in the water

    We have several ways for you to join the fun:

    Sign up on the website when you purchase your Auction tickets. If you can’t make the auction but still want to swim you can just buy a spot(s) here too.

    OR

    Sign up with your name as a placeholder on the Party Boards which will be hanging in each school very soon. We will add your spot(s) to your auction night tally.

    OR

    Sign up with your bidder number the night of the auction.

    If we sell out all 50 spots before Auction night, we can open up more. The more the merrier. It’s a big pool!

    Thank you.

  • 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.
