  • No School Dates for November

    There will not be school on November 4, 9, 10, 11, 23, 24, 25
  • Lost & Found

    Each month on the last Friday of the month we remove all clothes in the Lost & Found.  If a name isn't in the item it is then donated to the PPS Clothes Closet.


  • As we move into October I wanted to make you aware of a calendar change for the month.
    We are moving the book character spirit day from Wednesday, October 19th to Monday October 31st.  We would love to see your creativity with a book character costume.  Most characters are in book so it shouldn't be an issue.  If you run into a situation where it causes drama, we will happily accept you in your chosen halloween costume.  Please remember that this is a family friendly event.  Avoid anything that will make our youngest friends cry.  Also, do not include any weapons (knives, guns, swords…) with your costume.  Teachers also ask that masks are not worn during the school day.  You can put them on for the parade.  

    Take care,

    Heather Hull

  • 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
