    Dear Arleta Families,

    It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2016-17 school year! I am so grateful to be entering my fourth year as your principal and honored to get to work with such supportive parents, talented teachers, and curious children. One of the most important parts of my job is to make sure that we have outstanding educators in every role at Arleta and I am so proud to announce the following new staff members:


    • Brian Yoder, Principal's Secretary
    • Laura Bullard, 4th/5th Teacher
    • Eric Flagel, 4th/5th Teacher
    • Sierra Nelson-Nord, 6th grade Math/Science
    • Cedric Poindexter, Restorative Justice Coordinator
    • Marinela Ionescu, Half-time Spanish, Middle School


    There are many positive changes that Arleta will experience this year. As a result of the water crisis from last spring, there are five water coolers placed throughout the building with cups for students, staff, and parents to drink from. If you are in a position where you can send a water bottle to school with your child please do so and this will help limit the use of disposable cups. We are also looking forward to having a full time Restorative Justice Coordinator to support students that have made significant mistakes, students that have been adversely impacted by those mistakes, and work with all families involved. We are also excited to be one of 10 schools in the district to be implementing the newly adopted Reading and Writing Workshop curriculum and to have former classroom teacher Robin Mauldin supporting our learning as our Literacy Coach.

    We’re all looking forward to seeing you on the first day of school, 8/29 for 1st through 8th grade, and 9/1 for Kindgergarten. Our entrance bell will ring at 8:00 and school will start at 8:05. The cafeteria doors will open at 7:45 for free breakfast for all students. Please join me that morning for coffee and informal conversation in the cafeteria after drop off.



    Seth Jones, Principal

  • 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
