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.

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.
