  • October Update:

    Dear Senators,

     As we quickly move into the middle of October I’d like to take a moment to let you know what is going on in the hallways and classrooms at Madison. We have had a few visits from people wanting to check out what we do around here and we have enjoyed the chance to show off all the great things that students and staff are up to.  We have planned our open house for incoming families on December 8th this year and look forward to showcasing our students, staff, and programs.

     There are some things I want to make sure you are aware of:

     PSAT and Special Schedule October 19

    On the 19th we have an early release day for all students. This means that school is dismissed at 1:15pm. During the first half of the day (8:15-1:15) we are running a special schedule which is as follows:

    • 9th grade students will be going on field trips visiting both colleges and businesses. This is a great opportunity to engage in the worlds of work and further academics and give our 9th graders a glimpse into life beyond high school.
    • 10th graders will all be taking the PSAT. This assessment gives our students great practice for the SAT and other college admissions exams and help to prepare them for success. You can help prepare your student by ensuring that they get a good night’s sleep and eat breakfast in the morning.
    • 11th graders will be working on ACT preparation (The ACT is a college admission exam given to all juniors for free in late February. How students do on this exam is important for students in applying for colleges. 11th graders will also be working on understanding the FAFSA (federal student financial aid for college), resume writing, and interviewing – all skills necessary for life beyond high school.
    • 12th graders will engage in working on the essential skills graduation requirement if necessary, resume writing, interviewing, and completing a strength finder survey. Like with our 9th and 11th graders we are providing students with experiences that will support life beyond high school.

    Please note that lunch will be served at the end of the day and students will be dismissed from school at 1:15pm. It promises to be a great day.

     Interested in Site Council?

    Site Council is a group of staff, students, and community members that meet together once a month to focus on school improvement. I am currently looking for two to three parents to participate. Currently we know that the meeting time is challenging for many – we meet every third Wednesday of the month from 3:30-4:30pm. There is potential interest in having the meeting in the morning from 7-8am instead. If you are interested, please email me at

     We are looking for partners…

    Our career coordinator works very hard to provide students with opportunities to connect to potential careers. Our ability to bring in speakers, send our students on visits, etc. depending on how many connections to businesses that we have. If you have any connections to businesses that may be interested in partnering with our school, please let me know. We’d love to make more connections! Again, my email is


    Parent/Teacher Conferences are coming up

    Mark your calendars – conferences are coming up on November 9th and 10th. We will have conferences during the day as well as in the evening. Look for a schedule and details coming next week on the website and in an email.

     The End of the Quarter is November 3rd!

    The end of the quarter is coming up very soon. Please check in with your student and teachers if necessary. We want to make sure that all our students complete the quarter successfully and engaging you as partners in that work is very important. If you are aware of how to check on your student’s progress through Synergy please make sure and do so. If you aren’t sure, please contact us in the main office and counseling office and we can help you.

     Enjoy the rest of October-

  • Next Steps: Enrollment Balancing

    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:

  • Indoor rowing education comes to Portland Public Schools

     Recent Erg Ed event in Seattle WA.
    PPS has been awarded the 2016-2017 Erg Ed Grant. This grant provides erg equipment, access to the Erg Ed Curriculum, and comprehensive teacher training throughout the year.
  • PPS employee recognized as a hero
