    Dana Nerenberg Dear Sitton Families:

    Welcome to the new school year!  We are so excited to have the privilege of partnering with each of you this year to ensure each of our students experiences amazing learning and growth.

    The first day of school is Monday, August 29, 2016.  Our Kindergartners will engage in Kindergarten assessments and parent meetings from August 29-31, 2016 and will enjoy their first full day of school on Thursday, September 1, 2016.  Please see the attached information regarding the scheduling of these meetings.

    We are eager to deliver high quality learning experiences for each of our students every day and this starts with on time attendance each day!  Breakfast starts for all students at 7:45 am and class starts at 8:00 am.  School is dismissed at 2:15 pm daily.  Every child is served free breakfast and lunch through our delicious and nutritious cafeteria at school every day.  We will be providing filtered water to students throughout the day, please send your child to school with a reusable water bottle, labeled with his or her name, to minimize trash.

    Each Friday we publish a family newsletter, The Sitton Star, in English and Spanish to keep all of our families informed of the variety of events at our school.

    Thanks to the generous donation of our community partners, we will have free, brand new backpacks for each of our students on the first day of school.  We request each family donate $10, or what you are able, for classroom supplies for each child who attends our school.  It is easiest to deliver this donation directly to your child’s teacher.

    Parents and families are a child’s first teacher and we are eager to partner with you.  There are many ways you get involved including:

    • Join our PTA and sign up for the variety of workshops we offer parents
    • Join our Site Council
    • Volunteer at school (all parent volunteers must complete the volunteer background process)
    • Get to know your child’s teacher and our curriculum

    We have a terrific volunteer opportunity to help spruce up our school before the first day:

    • Community Cares Day on Saturday, August 27 from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm (please feel free to bring your own garden tools labeled with your name)

    On Thursday, August 25 from 2:00-3:00 pm we will welcome students to Popsicles on the Playground, an informal opportunity to say hello before the first day of school.

    As your child’s principal, I am eager to partner with you.  Should you have any questions, worries, or wonders, please do not hesitate to call me at 503.916.6277 or email me at dnerenberg@pps.net.    On behalf of the Sitton faculty and staff we look forward to a marvelous school year.

    Sincerely,
    Dana Nerenberg

  • Tuesday, January 17: All schools and offices closed

    This was a difficult decision. We know that school closures impact families in many ways, disrupting work schedules, childcare, in addition to classroom instruction for the nearly 49,000 students we serve.

  • School conditions update for Tuesday, January 17

    中文 Русский Español Tiếng Việt
      Facilities staff have been clearing parking lots and pathways, like here at West Sylvan.

    We continue to work to get schools ready to open tomorrow. Ice is our biggest barrier and concern, and the safety of students and staff is our priority.

    The vast majority of our schools have been cleared of snow yet, there are still a significant number that have walkways and other paths covered in ice, which we are working to clear today.

    We want to update you on the status of our work to prepare our schools for the safe return of staff and students. Since Wednesday, our dedicated custodians and maintenance staff have been working very long hours to clear pathways, manage building power, plumbing and heat to ensure all of our utilities are operational given the freezing conditions that can impact pipes and electricity.
