  • Dear Parents,


    This past week has been a very emotional week due to the fact that we have had some incidents of graffiti on the Fernwood campus that have been racist and anti-semitic.  Each time the graffiti was covered up within minutes of being discovered which is the policy of the district and the best way to demonstrate that we will not tolerate this behavior on our campus.  I, personally, was appalled by the remarks and was disappointed that someone in our community would think those remarks, let alone act on making them public.  I am truly sorry, and hurt, that this happened on our campus.


    In the coming weeks, Ms. Kobs is going to be presenting lessons to 5th-8th grade students about respecting differences, prejudice and the impact of words on others.  (Ms. Torrin Hrin is currently out of town but we will discuss how this will be approached in grades 1-4 upon her return.)  We will also be working on lesson plans that will be presented by the classroom teachers on a regular basis around these topics to help us build a stronger more caring community that supports one another. 


    As a staff, we encourage you to talk with your child about how racist comments impact everyone whether you are a giver, a receiver or a bystander to these comments.  Unfortunately this will not be the last time that your child might see or hear these types of statements.  The best thing that we can do as parents is help them process their feelings and assist them in developing responses as to what they will do when it happens again.  And to be very honest, for some of you this conversation might be very difficult.  But I encourage you to push forward and have the conversation to create a better environment for your child.


    One more way to get involved would be to join us for our parent Courageous Conversations meeting the evening of October 20 at the Fernwood Campus.


    In the past twenty four hours I have heard from some of you with concerns about not hearing about yesterday’s incident in a timely manner.  I am sorry that I did not send something out last evening, but in my mind, I felt that I needed to develop a plan with the school admin team that I could share with you when talking about the event.  I have learned that as a community, you would like to be notified right away that I am aware of a situation with the details to follow.  In the future I will make every attempt to notify you of an event with a follow up of our school response.


    I hope you have a thoughtful weekend.

  • 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
