    Hello Roseway Heights Community--

    It has been an newsworthy start to October--as many of you read/heard the Superintendent has recommended that Roseway Heights NOT convert to a middle school for next year. The current plan is for the conversion to be delayed one year (opening 2018-19). My letter to the community about this is on our website under the section “News”. I will keep the community updated as information is shared with me. If you have any specific questions or concerns that you want addressed, please let me know either by email or stopping by the office. I will work hard to try to advocate for our program no matter what the configuration is, and please know your input is important.

    By this time in the year our students have learned the routines, gotten comfortable in their classes and are really humming along with deeper learning. In the past few weeks I have been able to see some great teaching and learning at all the grade levels. I cannot express enough how amazing our teachers are, and how well they are able to bring different ways of learning into the classroom. I have seen lots of integration of the arts and movement in classes and students have been given the opportunity to work on real problems that matter to them.

    As we look forward to the PTA carnival on Friday October 28, I have been very impressed with the amount of time and energy our parent community has invested in providing amazing opportunities for our students. Both on behalf of the PTA and by showing up everyday in classrooms to help teachers--this community shows up to support our school! I want to encourage everyone to help out in whatever ways you can. I understand not all families can come to school, and we appreciate however you can support our programs and mission. In the coming weeks, we will begin Parent-Teacher conferences, which is a great time to build a connection with your student’s teacher and create open communication. Please see the conferences on November 9th and 10th as a starting place--a place to begin a conversation between the school and the family so everyone can succeed at Roseway.

    Looking ahead to some uncertainty for this school, we are committed to reaching all of our students and providing the excellent education they deserve. No matter what the board decides, or what the timeline becomes, the most important resource we have is each other. Please take this invitation to reach out to someone in our community that is new to you. Maybe it is a parent of a new student, or a family member you see at pick up or drop off, or maybe it is someone new to your student’s class. Reach out to someone you see who is different from who you usually spend time with and see what possibilities open up. Roseway Heights is an amazing community that is only going to get better together. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns--

    With deep respect for the work done by so many in this community--

    Jeremy Cohen
    Principal, Roseway Heights K-8

  • 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
