Welcome to our Rosa Parks Elementary School Website! Rosa Parks Elementary K-5 School is nestled in the New Columbia neighborhood of North Portland, Oregon. Our administration, teachers, staff and volunteers work together to achieve our goal, "to place and keep children first in all we do." We have a diverse community with over 20 different countries represented, which is closely knit together into a larger community that works hard to help our students succeed. At Rosa Parks, "failure is not an option!"
We are a Year-Round Balanced Calendar School. In fact, we're the only school in the PPS District piloting this program and are in our 3rd year on this schedule. This year, we started school on July 15th! Students will go to school for nine-weeks and then have a three-week break (Intersession) in the Fall. We will follow this schedule until our summer release in June, when we will have a five-week summer break.
On the third week of our Interssion/break, identified students who need extra math or reading support are invited back to what we call, Intervention/Enrichment Week. This is extra school days that are encouraged, but not required. Identified students for Intervention will enjoy smaller class sizes and interactive learning to help them meet their benchmarks. Students who are meeting/exceeding their benchmarkes are invited back for Enrichment classes like, Prehistoric Predators, Airways Science, etc. This is such a great week for our students and staff!
We invite you to explore our website to learn more about our school!
Dear PPS Families and Staff,
I am pleased to announce that Kristie Lindholm will become a Senior Director in the Office of School Performance on July 1.
Dear PPS Families and Staff:
Spring is approaching and it’s that time of year when we begin building budgets and plans for the next school year.
I spent Monday in Salem with a fellow board member, PPS principals and educators and school districts from across Oregon to advocate for additional resources to support K-12 education and our local schools. The state is facing a shortfall of approximately $1.7 billion and the budgets proposed for K-12 from the Governor and Legislature are not adequate to maintain current levels of services.
