  • Site Council at Ockley Green Middle School

    October 2017

    Greetings from Your OGMS Site Council!

    We would like to take a few minutes of your time to explain what Site Council is, who it is composed of, and what our goals are for this year.

    What is Site Council?

    The primary purpose of Site Council is to improve student learning. Site Council accomplishes this by providing leadership, direction, and support to the school community to support school improvement.


    Some of the specific duties of a Site Council are:

    • Development and coordination of plans to improve professional growth of the school staff

    • Administration of grants for professional development and instructional support

    • Fostering family involvement in the school

    • Improvement of the school’s instructional program


    Site Council has an open door policy and operates with transparency. All meeting notes are publicly available on the school website (https://www.pps.net/ockleygreen), and hard copies are available in the main office. Any person can attend any meeting at any time.

    How is Site Council different from the PTA?

    Site Council develops and helps administer educational improvements. PTA provides program enrichment. In other words, Site Council oversees what is happening within the classroom, PTA oversees all of the fun extras.

    Who is on Site Council?

    Site Council is traditionally composed of elected representatives from the school and the local community. Because OGMS is a new school and is still in the process of establishing systems, Site Council will determine its bylaws over the course of the 2017-18 school year with the goal of holding elections Spring 2018.


    Current members are:

    ⦿ Jane Harold - Assistant Principal ⦿ Zarahi Soto-Dairy - ELD teacher ⦿

    ⦿ Kate Mann - 6th grade language arts teacher ⦿

    ⦿ Rashae Burns - 6th grade parent ⦿ Kelly Bawden - 6th grade parent ⦿

    ⦿ Richard Greensted - 6th and 8th grade parent ⦿ Emily Wever - 6th and 8th grade parent ⦿

    ⦿ Molly Grier - 6th and HS parent ⦿Jeff Johnson - 7th grade parent ⦿


    We are actively seeking members from all aspects of the larger OGMS community, including representatives from each feeder school, a DLI representative, a member with a student in High School, and other community members from outside the school building. Please join us for a meeting this year!

    Meeting and Contact Information

    Meetings are held the 3rd Wednesday of every month from 6-7:30 pm in the OGMS Library. Our next meeting will be Wednesday, October 18th, 2017.


    We are honored to serve you and our fantastic community this year. Please contact Site Council with questions, concerns, or issues you would like us to consider by emailing ockleygreensitecouncil@gmail.com.

    Octubre 2017

    ¡Saludos del OGMS Site Council!

    Quisiera un poco de su tiempo para explicarles lo que es el consejo de sitio Site Council, cómo está compuesto, y, cuáles son nuestras metas para el presente año.

    ¿Qué es el Site Council?

    El propósito primario del Site Council es mejorar el aprendizaje del alumnado. El Site Council logra esto proveyendo liderazgo, dirección y apoyo a la comunidad escolar para apoyar las mejorías de la escuela.

     

    Algunas de las obligaciones específicas del Site Council son:

    ● Desarrollo y coordinación de planes para mejorar el crecimiento profesional

    ● Fomento de la participación de las familias en la escuela

    ● Mejoramiento del programa educativo de la escuela

     

    El Site Council tiene una política de puertas abiertas y opera con transparencia. Todas las anotaciones de las reuniones están públicamente disponibles en el sitio de internet (https://www.pps.net/ockleygreen) de la escuela, y hay copias impresas en la oficina principal.

    ¿Cuál es la diferencia entre Site Council y PTA?

    El Site Council desarrolla y ayuda a administrar mejorías educativas. La asociación de padres de familia PTA provee el enriquecimiento de programas. En otras palabras, el Site Council supervisa lo que está ocurriendo en el aula. La PTA supervisa todos los extras divertidos.

    ¿Quienes están en el Site Council?

    Tradicionalmente el Site Council esta compuesto por representantes elegidos de la escuela y de la comunidad local. Ya que OGMS es una escuela nueva y se encuentra todavía dentro del proceso de establecimiento de sistemas, el Site Council va a determinar sus estatutos en el transcurso del año escolar 2017-18, con la meta de tener elecciones en la primavera de 2018.

     

    Los miembros actuales son:

    ⦿ Jane Harold - Sub Directora ⦿ Zarahi Soto-Dairy - maestro ELD ⦿ Kate Mann - maestro lenguaje, 6to ⦿

    ⦿ Rashae Burns - padre de familia, 6to ⦿ Kelly Bawden - padre de familia, 6to ⦿

    ⦿ Richard Greensted - padre de familia, 6to y 8vo ⦿ Emily Wever - padre de familia, 6to y 8vo ⦿ ⦿ Molly Grier - padre de familia, 6to y preparatoria ⦿Jeff Johnson - padre de familia, 7mo ⦿

    ¡Nos hayamos a la búsqueda de miembros de todo tipo de interés dentro de toda la comunidad de OGMS, incluyendo representantes de cada una de las escuelas primarias que derivan en la nuestra, un representante del programa de inmersión en idioma dual DLI, un representante con algún hijo en preparatoria, y, otros miembros de la comunidad externos al plantel escolar! ¡Únansenos por favor en una reunión este año!

    Información de la Reunión y de Contacto

    Las reuniones se llevarán a cabo cada 3er viernes del mes, de 6-7:30pm en la biblioteca de OGMS. Nuestra siguiente reunión se llevará a cabo el miércoles 18 de octubre de 2017.

    Nos sentimos honrados de poder servirles este año, tanto a ustedes como a nuestra fantástica comunidad. Sírvanse comunicar al Site Council, por correo electrónico a ockleygreensitecouncil@gmail.com, las preguntas, preocupaciones o problemas que quisieran se tomen en consideración.

  • Early Release Schedule - September 5, 2017

    Dear OG families and friends,
    Here is the Early Release Schedule for Ockley Green for tomorrow, September 5, 2017.  Please read the message from PPS re the heat advisory below followed by the schedule.  We will adjust the bells and assist students as needed. 

    "Due to a heat advisory all schools will end two hours earlier than the regular school hours on Tuesday, Sept. 5. All PPS kindergarten and preschool programs will be delayed one day and start on Wednesday, Sep. 6. Extended hot weather could cause unsafe or unhealthy conditions in PPS classrooms, and the safety of our students is always our foremost concern.

    This early dismissal plan will also result in the cancellation of after-school activities in PPS buildings, including childcare. After-school athletics will follow OSAA guidelines.

    School buses will follow their regular afternoon routes, but will arrive at school two hours earlier and drop students off at their regular bus stops two hours earlier. Because PPS child care sites will be closed, please plan to pick up your students at their school site two hours earlier than the normal end of your students’ school day. 

    The District is making this decision because only a handful of our buildings have air conditioning. Additionally, smoke from forest fires has prompted an air quality advisory. This means windows in many classrooms must remain closed, which reduces air flow and can cause even higher temperatures. 

    Families should contact their students' school with questions. PPS will also have a coordination line open at 503-916-6600 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to answer questions."

    A Day

    1st: 9:10 - 10:06

    3rd: 10:09 - 11:05

    1st Lunch: 11:08 - 11:40

  • Announcing Ockley Green’s Interim Principal Paula McCullough

    August 2017

    Dear Ockley Green Community,

    I am pleased to announce that veteran principal Paula McCullough will serve as the interim principal at Ockley Green Middle School for the 2017-18 school year.

    Paula served PPS for 30 years as a teacher, assistant principal and principal, retiring in 2004 as Ainsworth’s principal. Since retiring, she served as the principal for Twality Middle School in the Tigard Tualatin School District and has assisted PPS with special projects and served as a substitute administrator when the district needed support. From 2013-2014, she served as interim principal for the Atkinson Spanish Immersion program; from 2014-2015 she served as the senior director for the Franklin Cluster; and from 2015-2016 as the senior director for the Wilson PreK-8 schools.

    Paula is looking forward to working with middle school students again, and to getting to know Ockley students and how she can support them. Paula believes that students deserve to feel safe and valued in their learning and experiences; and teachers deserve to teach in a school that has systems in place to deliver instructional programs that address the needs of their students. Paula is committed to working together with students, staff and families in the community to ensure a successful 2017-18 school year.

    Ockley Green Senior Director Karl Logan will work closely with Paula to ensure a smooth transition and start to the new school year. A process to select a new principal for Ockley Green will commence later this year.

    Paula will be joined at Ockley by Terri Sing, who will serve as the interim instructional support principal in charge of the special education department. Terri will be there to support all staff, students and families, but will have a focus on increasing inclusive practices for students with disabilities and ensuring they are ready to enter, and ultimately graduate from, high school. As a vice principal at Madison High School, Terri knows that experiences in high school shape the rest of students’ lives. She is committed to making sure that students served by the special education department are given as much an opportunity to succeed as those who are not.

    Please join me in welcoming Paula McCullough and Terri Sing to the Ockley Green community.

    Yousef Awwad
    Interim Superintendent
