    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!

    Regards,

    Mr. Newsome

  • 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.
