  • Lane Community Walk

    As part of The Healthy Travel Options to School Plan, the Portland Bureau of Transportation is partnering with Portland Public Schools and Safe Routes to School to lead 15 Community Walks to identify barriers to walking. This project aims to close infrastructure equity gaps, overcome cultural and physical barriers to walking or biking to school, reduce necessity for driving, and increase safety within the Portland Public Schools student active transportation network.
    Oregon Walks will lead a community walk at Lane Middle School on May 25th from 4-5:00 PM to get input directly from parents and school staff on the needs in their school community around safe and healthy transportation options.
    • Map how your kids travel to and from school 
    • Provide feedback on where improvements are needed to make walking to school safer
    • Learn to use a web application to report concerns to PPS & The City of Portland
    For more information, please contact Inna Levin, Oregon Walks Volunteer Coordinator: inna@oregonwalks.org, 503-223-1597. Oregon Walks is the state’s pedestrian advocacy organization. Find out more at oregonwalks.org 
  • Lane Is an AVID School

    What does that mean?

    That means that we are using AVID strategies and goals to prepare all of our students to graduate from high school prepared to apply to a college or career program. We are focusing on organization, determination and proven study and learning strategies to support our students towards success. 

    If you would like more information about AVID and how to support your student, contact Ms. Miller at pmiller2@pps.net.

    Stay tuned for an upcoming AVID school event to learn more.

Message

  • JeandreCarbone

    Dear Lane Middle School Parents and Guardians,

    It is with great honor and anticipation that I welcome you to the 2016/17 school year as the new principal of Lane Middle School.  First, I wanted to provide you with some information about my background.  I come to Lane with a wide range of educational experience, with 24 years as a teacher and administrator at the middle and high school level, including seven years teaching overseas in Venezuela and Turkey.  I joined Portland Public Schools in 2006, with five years as a teacher and administrator for a literacy program called Striving Readers, and five years as the vice principal of Benson High School.  At Benson, I oversaw the implementation and expansion of the AVID program, and I am very excited to work to strengthen the AVID program at Lane.

    During the past two months, I have had many conversations with Lane parents, teachers, students, and community members.  From these interactions, it has become clear to me that there is a desire for a strong partnership between the school, families, and neighbors, to come together and provide the best possible academic experience for Lane students. The Lane family and community involvement I have witnessed so far has convinced me that the 2016/17 school year is destined to be a year of collaboration, joy, and positive growth for all of us.

    Lane has assembled an excellent team of dedicated teachers and support staff who are committed to providing Lane students with academic experiences that are relevant, rigorous, and build strong relationships. This commitment to learning enables us to meet the challenges of academic excellence in an affirming, joyous, and encouraging environment.

    Lane has an active parent-teacher association (PTA) and I encourage you to join the PTA and get involved with the many exciting projects they have planned.  Our PTA has worked hard on a project to beautify the Lane Campus.  If you see the school looking spruced up, it is mostly due to their efforts.  The PTA meets the second Wednesday of each month from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.  You can learn more about the PTA by visiting their webpage here, or by emailing lanepdxpta@gmail.com.

  • 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.
