Welcome to Vestal--thank you for visiting our new website!
We are focused this year on the vision statement: “One community. Every child.” What does that mean?
It means that, at Vestal, we believe every adult--administrators, teachers, staff, parents and guardians, community partners--shares responsibility for the success of every child.
It means that, at Vestal, we come together as a community to celebrate our successes and we come together as a community to navigate our struggles.
It means that, at Vestal, every child matters. We work to make every child feel included, valued, challenged, and engaged. Children’s needs differ, so our approaches and responses must differ. If we don’t get the approach right the first time, we are obligated to try again.
Families and partners, I invite you to check this site regularly so that you can stay in the loop on community events, happenings, celebrations, and needs. We also post regularly on our school Facebook page (PPS Vestal School)--feel free to follow us there as well.
Please know that my door is always open. I am best reached by phone (503.916.6437) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). You can also find me at the Front Door almost every morning during arrival and in and out of the Main Office during most school days.
Emily Glasgow, Principal
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:
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM Veterans Day (No School)
8:00 AM - 9:00 AM Thanksgiving Day (No School)
