  • August 2016

    Dear Families,

    The summer has flown by and it's hard to believe we will soon be starting school again. I hope you've had a wonderful, relaxing summer with many fond memories to look back on.

    We will be sending out our newsletter shortly with your child's classroom assignment and other important information. School supplies lists are also on this website for our 5th - 8th graders. Take advantage of the school supplies sales while you can. For Kindergarten - 4th grade, we will continue to purchase supplies and appreciate your donation of $35 or whatever is comfortable for your family to donate to the classroom.

    Project Community Care Day is scheduled for Saturday, September 10th, from 9:00 am - 12:00 pm. This date may change so keep your eyes out for an email or on this website if that changes. Snacks and drink will be provided for those of you who would like to volunteer your time to beautify the school grounds. Bring your own tools or we have a few you can use. Thank you!

    We're looking forward to seeing you soon!


    Mr. Newsome

  • 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

    Union painter Bryan Meyers has received a Citizen Life Saving Award from local Gladstone police. Bryan’s quick thinking and actions saved his neighbor’s life during a cardiac arrest earlier this year. Click more for a local news story that includes gripping audio of the 911 call.
  • Civic Scholars Recognized

    Each year teachers around the state are selected as Civic Scholars by state house and senate members.

    These teachers are recognized for outstanding abilities and commitment to civic education. So far five teachers from Portland Public Schools have been selected.
