    Dear Arleta Families,

    For the past few months we have been working with the School District and the Portland Association of Teachers to find a compromise to the fifteen additional minutes that K-8 middle schools are required to add to their school days. For a variety of reasons, adding fifteen minutes to our day for only grades 6th-8th would create a hardship for our students and families. We were able to reach a compromise, through adding five minutes in the morning and decreasing passing times, and have now received official word that we can change our schedule at the start of the second semester.

    Beginning on Monday February 6, our Entrance Bell will ring at 7:55 am and school will officially begin at 8:00 am. For families new to Arleta, this is what our schedule had been in past years. Making any changes to our master schedule during the middle of the school year is not ideal. We appreciate your patience and flexibility throughout this process.

    On Thursday February 16th, we will be holding a Sixth Grade Information Night, in our auditorium from 6:00-7:00 pm. Parents of fifth grade students are encouraged to attend, along with their children. This will be an opportunity for parents to hear from all of our middle school teachers, to learn about our program, hear a brief performance from our Middle School Band, as well as walk through middle school classrooms. Since we will be in the auditorium, if you have a student at a different grade level and are curious about Arleta’s Middle School, please feel free to join us.

    If you have questions or concerns please contact me at 503-916-6330 or sjones3@pps.net.

    Respectfully,

     

    Seth Jones

  • Nine of our schools earn EPA’s ENERGY STAR rating

    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.

  • Enrollment balancing for Peninsula, Chief Joseph and Ockley Green

    Soomaaliga Español Tiếng Việt
    The District-wide Boundary Review Advisory Committee (DBRAC) was formed in 2014 to help with enrollment balancing across Portland Public Schools. The committee’s most recent work led them to propose two options to help relieve crowding at Chief Joseph and to create more robust enrollment at Peninsula starting in the 2017-18 school year. On January 30, 2017, Interim Superintendent Bob McKean endorsed one of two DBRAC proposals.

    The proposal, which still requires the approval of the Board of Education, may be reviewed at, www.pps.net/dbrac.
