    Did you know that February 14th is Oregon’s Birthday? It’s true, and our 4th grade celebrates it every year! They study Oregon history all year long and plan a special day with all kinds of Oregon related events and a birthday cake for our state. February 14th is also St. Valentine’s Day, but it is not a holiday that is universally celebrated at Kelly.

    At a ceremony on February 10 at Wilson High School in SW Portland, nine PPS schools were recognized by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for achieving ENERGY STAR certification. To receive this certification, a building must perform in the top 25% of similar facilities nationwide for energy efficiency, and meet strict energy efficiency performance levels set by the EPA.

On January 30, 2017, Interim Superintendent Bob McKean endorsed one of two DBRAC proposals.

    The proposal, which still requires the approval of the Board of Education, may be reviewed at,
