Dear Parents and Cleveland Community Members,
With parent conferences and Thanksgiving behind us the holiday season has truly kicked off! One of the personal benefits of moving back to the Portland area for my family are the great traditions we have in our city for all families to enjoy. Attending the Zoo lights and Peacock Lane are personal favorites of ours. I hope you have the opportunity to celebrate the season with your family in your own special ways, and create everlasting memories and traditions that bring you all joy and happiness.
We have numerous upcoming music performances from our bands and choirs. Please check our webpage for dates, times, and locations. Our incoming 9th grade visitation day, Bridging the Gap, will occur on 12-12-2019 from 7 PM to 9 PM. This event gives incoming and prospective students and their families the opportunity to visit our school and learn about the programs that make Cleveland special.
Hopefully, you have heard about the district wide initiative to modernize Cleveland High School. As a final step in the conceptual master planning process the planning committee is inviting any and all community members interested in providing feedback on the conceptual designs the larger committee created. Please join us on 12-10-2019 from 5-7 PM. The location will be clearly advertised upon your arrival.
I am proud to advertise a special way in which Cleveland is special. Our leadership program, managed by Mrs. Brighouse and Ms. Weesner, have initiated the annual “CHS Gives Back” program. In the spirit of giving back to our community we encourage everyone to donate funds or partnerships that benefit people in need. Last year funds raised helped support: Holiday food for needy families, the food pantry here on campus, rental and utility assistance, grocery items, and supporting victims of domestic abuse. The best way to support Cleveland Gives Back is through SchoolPay at: tinyurl.com/CHSGB2019.
Lastly, with the school year almost at the halfway point I wanted to express my deepest gratitude for the support from the community for Cleveland High School on behalf of the staff and students. We are very fortunate to have such wonderful community members on our side.
Here are the best ways to stay connected as a community and receive the latest news about Cleveland.
