Tonight’s 8th Grade Family Night at Roosevelt has been cancelled. It will be rescheduled for Monday, February 13th at 5:30 PM. We apologize for any inconvenience this second cancellation may cause. MLC’s 8th Grade Family Night set for this evening at 6pm is happening as scheduled.
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!
Hello PPS families and staff,
On April 4 I presented my proposed budget for the 2017-18 school year to our School Board. I want to make sure you know what our spending priorities are, and what they will mean for you and your PPS student or students.
This is a budget of difficult choices. We made extra cuts to central administration to prioritize direct services for students, but we still must make some painful cuts to our schools. Although the cuts will affect each school differently, they will be noticeable. This proposed budget is the first step in a long process, and we will be seeking your input and engagement as we manage this difficult fiscal climate.
CORRECTION: 2nd budget listening session is Tuesday, April 25
We want to hear from you about the 2017-18 budget for PPS! The Portland School Board has scheduled three listening sessions to take your comments on how we should allocate our dollars in the coming year.
Dear PPS Families and Staff:
Spring is approaching and it’s that time of year when we begin building budgets and plans for the next school year.
I spent Monday in Salem with a fellow board member, PPS principals and educators and school districts from across Oregon to advocate for additional resources to support K-12 education and our local schools. The state is facing a shortfall of approximately $1.7 billion and the budgets proposed for K-12 from the Governor and Legislature are not adequate to maintain current levels of services.
Dear PPS Families and Staff,
I am pleased to announce that Kristie Lindholm will become a Senior Director in the Office of School Performance on July 1.
