  • End of Semester Letter to Families

    January 31, 2017

    Dear Roosevelt Families,                        

    We hope that you and your loved ones are doing well.

    As we approach the end of the semester I wanted to share a few exciting highlights from Roosevelt.

    Jason Margolis held the first music concert in the new Roosevelt Theater.  It was wonderful to see many of you there support our talented student musicians.  Jo Lane is working with her students for the grand opening of the theater on Thursday, March 16th.  We hope to see you there.

    In addition to the new Theater, we now have access to the new Music classrooms and the Commons.  The kitchen will be up and running around Spring Break.  As far as we know, the modernization of the 1921 building is progressing as planned.  We look forward to having the building completed in August of 2017.

    Our students are in the midst of forecasting for next year.  Please take a look at our course guide if you haven’t already.  You can find it on our website or can get a hard copy in the Main Office.  In addition to offering a variety of core academic classes, we are continuing to expand elective offerings.  I am particularly excited about the growing programs of study that we now offer in Journalism (Ms. Mitchell), Construction Management (Mr. Duckworth), Engineering (Mr. Scott), Future Educators (Dr. Ramirez), Computer Science (Mr. Ansell), and Theater Arts (Ms. Lane).  Please ask your student to review the forecasting sheet and connect with your student’s counselor if you have any questions.

    We are pleased to let you know that our graduation rate is moving in the right direction.  In addition to earning more than $6 million dollars in scholarship and receiving multiple state and national recognition, more of our seniors graduated on time last year than in recent history.  As a matter of fact, our graduation rate is up 12% in the last two years.  It increased from 53% in 2014 to 65% in 2016.  Needless to say, we will not be satisfied until all our students graduate on time, ready for college and career of their choosing.  We are hopeful that our seniors this year will outperform their peers from last year and the years past.

    Please remember that you can always check your student’s grades and contact teachers through ParentVue.  If you are having a hard time accessing ParentVue please contact Ms. Castle at 503 916-5260 Ext 82438 or kcastle@pps.net.

    As always, we welcome your thoughts, questions, and suggestions.  Please feel free to connect with us directly or join us for one of the upcoming parent meetings.  Our next PTA meeting is on Wednesday, February 15th, from 6:00pm-7:00pm.  The RHS Site Council is meeting on Tuesday, February 21st from 4:00pm-5:30pm.  You can join us for the Coffee with the Principal on Tuesday, February 7th from 8:15am-9:00am in English and 9:00am-9:45am in Spanish.  We hope to see you there.  RHS events and information can be located on our Roosevelt website at http://www.pps.net/Domain/149.

    All the best,

    Filip Hristić, Principal

    The Portland Public Schools Board of Directors voted unanimously last night to approve boundary changes to Peninsula and Chief Joseph schools, both feeder schools for Ockley Green Middle School.

  • Nine of our schools earn EPA’s ENERGY STAR rating

    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. ENERGY STAR schools use an average of 35% less energy, and also release 35% less carbon dioxide.

    Read the full press release here.

  • Enrollment balancing for Peninsula, Chief Joseph and Ockley Green

    Soomaaliga Español Tiếng Việt
    The District-wide Boundary Review Advisory Committee (DBRAC) was formed in 2014 to help with enrollment balancing across Portland Public Schools. The committee’s most recent work led them to propose two options to help relieve crowding at Chief Joseph and to create more robust enrollment at Peninsula starting in the 2017-18 school year. 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, www.pps.net/dbrac.
