  • Kindergarten Regestration



    We're on the hunt for SUPER COOL STUFF to auction off this year and chances are the very best things will come from (or through) you! Think if you or someone you know has:
    • A cabin or vacation home they'd be willing to offer?
    • A talent to share with the community? Things like leading a guided hike, fishing or canoe trip; or hosting a themed dinner party, a garden makeover or making dessert for a year
    • Tickets to a local sporting event or better yet, access to a corporate game suite?
    • A high-interest, high-value items like the latest tech toys? Skateboards and bikes are great money-makers for our school 
    • Quality spirits or wine? Donate a bottle, several bottles, or a magnum

    If you've got an item to share, please contact Donee Deschler, for information and to donate.

    ANOTHER GREAT WAY TO SUPPORT THE AUCTION IS TO BE A SPONSOR! Both as an owner and an employee (whose employer just needs to understand the great benefits that come with the opportunity), there's a special pride that comes from seeing your company's name as one that helps BCS.  Not only is it the neighborly thing to do, it's good business (and tax-deductible too!). 

    To learn more about the various sponsorship levels and benefits, please contact JoLynn Holton,

    Well here we are finally at spring break.  I don’t know about the students but the teachers are ready to take a little breather before we hit the home stretch.


    This week I would like to clarify the staffing information that I sent out last week.  My goal is to have all classrooms, grades K-8, be at 30 students or below.  With the information I sent out last week, I was able to reach that goal.  The key component to making this all work for next year is that we are able to raise as much money through the Foundation as we have in the past.  I included an extra 2 staff members in last week’s proposal based on our average Foundation fundraising for the past couple of years. 


    Some people ask which staff members the Foundation Funds are paying for.  The way I look at the Foundation Funds is that they are not necessarily paying for an individual but they are helping us to lower class sizes and maintain current levels of programming for our school as a whole.  Without those funds, we would have to make some very difficult decisions.  However, the dollar amount we need to maintain the staffing I sent out last week is a conservative estimate and is very doable if we all work together to make it happen.


    I hope this helps to clarify the situation and demonstrate how important it is that we all work together at the Auction to strengthen the learning environment for our students.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to send me an email.


    I hope that you are able to spend some time this spring break enjoying your families and if you are travelling that you have a safe journey.


    Have a great spring break!

  • Important budget message from the Superintendent

    Español | Tiếng Việt | 中文 | Русский | Soomaali

    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.

  • PPS budget: We want to hear from you

    CORRECTION: 2nd budget listening session is Tuesday, April 25

    Budget overview
    Español | Tiếng Việt | 中文 | Русский | Soomaali

    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.

  • From Tom Koehler, Chair of the Board of Education: Budget and Bond

    Español| Tiếng Việt| 中文| Русский| Soomaali

    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.
