Dear Hosford Families,
Last week, I wrote you about Hosford's commitment to welcome and support all of our students and families, and to stand against racism, sexism, xenophobia, and religious intolerance.
As promised, this week in extended advisory on Thursday, we began talking about race and racism with students, in order to help build an understanding from which we can strengthen our school community. This is, clearly, a deep subject, and this first lesson was just an initial one. We will eventually also be addressing the other issues (sexism, xenophobia, religious intolerance) in contrast to our school values. We know that, at this age, students may struggle to process messages they receive in the media or from peers, and we want to give them tools to think critically, to respond positively, and to speak up if they encounter an unjust situation.
On Thursday, February 16, we are celebrating our 2nd quarter Principal's List and Honor Roll students at an assembly at 2:42 pm. Parents are welcome to join us! Students on the Principal's List received at least 5 "consistently manages responsibilities" comments on their report card, and students on the Honor Roll received at least 4 "consistently manages responsibilities" comments. Congratulations to the following students for their hard work!

Dear Hosford Community and Families,
We want to know the values that are important to you and that you want to see reflected in our school’s expectations of students. Our goal is to develop 3-5 values with input from students, staff, community members, and families.
The team wants to understand what’s important to each member of our school community.
Please share the three (3) values you believe are most important in this survey. It is our goal to have your voice reflected in the development of Hosford’s revised School-Wide Student Expectations.
Thank you for sharing your opinion.
Hosford’s School Climate Team
At the end of every school year, the
School-family Partnership program sponsors Student Recognition Award ceremonies
for successful students across the district. These award ceremonies are
essential to honor and reward students whose achievements represent the best of
PPS, and to inspire their fellow students in the coming school year. We’re
excited to celebrate these students and are looking forward to sharing their
stories with you.
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.
