  • What is a Community?

Principal's
Message

  • 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 (eglasgow@pps.net). 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.

  • End-of-Year Student Award Ceremonies

    At the end of every school year, the School-family Partnership program sponsors Student Recognition Award ceremonies for successful students across the district. These award ceremonies are essential to honor and reward students whose achievements represent the best of PPS, and to inspire their fellow students in the coming school year. We’re excited to celebrate these students and are looking forward to sharing their stories with you.

  • Important budget message from the Superintendent

    Español | Tiếng Việt | 中文 | Русский | Soomaali

    Hello PPS families and staff,

    On April 4 I presented my proposed budget for the 2017-18 school year to our School Board. I want to make sure you know what our spending priorities are, and what they will mean for you and your PPS student or students.

    This is a budget of difficult choices. We made extra cuts to central administration to prioritize direct services for students, but we still must make some painful cuts to our schools. Although the cuts will affect each school differently, they will be noticeable. This proposed budget is the first step in a long process, and we will be seeking your input and engagement as we manage this difficult fiscal climate.
