Creston School, along with our PTA's Traffic and Student Safety Committee, PPS Transportation Services, and the Portland Department of Transportation, designed and implemented a new traffic plan this school year to improve student safety. Please take a moment to review the new Creston School traffic plan below. Please be aware of parking limits and no parking zones around the school, Please be considerate of all pedestrians and other drivers as you move around the school. Thank you for your cooperation to keep our kids and families safe.
The Comprehensive Achievement Plan (CAP) highlights our program’s focus for the 2016-2017 school year.
I am excited to welcome you to the 2016-2017 school year. Creston continues to grow and is ready to embrace the new opportunities this year will bring. We are looking forward to the students arriving.
In the spring of 2016, we mailed a suggested supply list home to families for the upcoming school year. Creston is very thankful to its long-time partners Vernier Software and School House Supplies for the Tools for Schools Program through which each student will receive important learning tools to promote learning.
As a reminder, PPS is contracting for water delivery for the 2016-17 school year to ensure that there will be safe drinking water available for all students and staff in the fall. Water will be supplied through water dispensers to eliminate waste. Portland Public Schools will continue to provide parents with safety updates.
We look forward to seeing you all at our Back to School Night.
Thursday, September 15
from 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Dear Students, Families and Staff:
I wanted to reach out to assure you that actions this week by the federal government to reduce protections for transgender students does not change or diminish our commitment to upholding clear PPS policies and guidelines that prohibit discrimination based on gender identity or expression.
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.
The proposal, which still requires the approval of the Board of Education, may be reviewed at, www.pps.net/dbrac.
