  • Principal Ruth Tucker

    Dear Whitman Families,

    I can’t believe it is almost October already! This is one of my favorite times of the year, as it looks different here than it does in my hometown. It is also a beautiful time in the school year because classroom communities have ben developed, instruction is well on its way, and there is student engagement in every nook.

    As you know, our school is implementing Balanced Literacy this year. You will notice your students ready and writing  more often, and our teachers doing a 10-15 minute whole class mini-lesson, followed by small group instruction and one-to-one conferring. We encourage you to ask your children about the books they are reading, and the reading habits they are developing every day. We are pretty proud of them!

    Lastly, I would like to invite you to our Back to School Night this Thursday, September  29th at 6:00 pm. After reviewing the results  of the parent survey sent home last year, we learned that our families would like to know what content students are accessing in the classrooms, and what the homework and behavior expectations are.  To this end, we will all meet in the cafeteria at 6:00 for a brief introduction. After that, it’ll be time for you to visit the classrooms, where the teachers will be sharing all the information with you. On your way out, don’t forget to stop by our Resource Fair, located in the cafeteria. You’ll find many organizations and agencies ready to share ideas and support!

  • 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
