Week of 10/24
Child Adult Relationship Enhancement (C.A.R.E.) Workshops at Kelly
Would you like to learn some the same skills that child experts use to help children? Kelly Elementary will be hosting two parenting workshops to help parents learn just these skills. The C.A.R.E. (Child Adult Relationship Enhancement) workshops are evidence-based trainings that will help you learn how to improve your child's well-being and manage misbehavior effectively. Each workshop is 90 minutes long and facilitated by Ronald Crouch Ph.D., a psychologist who specializes in children and parenting. The workshops will take place on October 24th and 31st at 1:30 PM.
Our Kelly Library is open every morning from 8:30-8:50 for families to come in together to check out books. Also, check out the events at the Midland Library. There are weekly storytimes in Russian, Vietnamese, and more! Check out October events at the Midland Library here:https://multcolib.org/sites/default/files/Midland%20Oct%20events_0.pdf

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:
4:30 PM - 5:30 PM PTA Meeting
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM Veterans Day (No School)
